FAVOURITE MAC LIPSTICKS


If someone were to say to me that I would be loving lip products back in 2013, I would have laughed. Lip products were something I used to avoid because I did not use to like how it felt on the lips. I have since then discovered lip products which I love and thus, my obsession grew! More specifically, MAC lip products. I know many people avoid MAC, but for me, MAC is my fail safe. I will always find something that I would like whenever I'm looking for a new shade. They have a ton of different finishes and although the prices have increased dramatically over the years, it's something I can overlook - unless it comes to £18 per lipstick, which would be ridiculous!
My first ever MAC lipstick was the shade Sweetie. I remember being in duty free and instantly being drawn to the shade. I also remember asking the sale assistant if I could have the shade 'lustre' *hides in the corner - haha!* It is a true pink lipstick, which has some shimmer in it but this is barely visible on the lips. This is the same bullet I brought all those years ago and surprisingly it still has that yummy vanilla scent. Also, it feels lighter compared to my other lipsticks, which is a little weird! The most recent MAC lipstick I brought is Fanfare, which is a yellow toned pink. This is definitely the 'your lips but better' shade. As it is a creamsheen, it feels amazing on the lips and it stays for a pretty long time compared to a lustre finish lipstick. 

The one shade I kept wearing during the Summer is Speed Dial. Again, this is a creamsheen so it feels great on the lips but it is very much a true Barbie pink but more wearable. I do like my pink lipsticks but more so, I prefer nude lipsticks - you can never have too many, right?! My ultimate favourite nude lipstick is Faux. I've recommended this to so many people and it's just a great shade to wear on an everyday basis. Now because we are going towards the colder months, the one shade that I opt for is Twig. This is much darker compared to Faux, as it is a muted pinkish brown but it is still wearable to wear every day. Both of these shades have a satin finish, so they are not quite matte but they have a little bit of a sheen to them. These are probably my favourite finishes from MAC, because they are so comfortable to wear but in terms of longevity, it is amazing.

  1. Faux looks amazing! I have about fifty shades of nude in my collection but there is ALWAYS room for one more ;) Love your story about duty-free. I am always fearful when traveling.. Not even of the travel itself, but of the possibility of finding a Duty free shop that carries MAC. I'll be bankrupt before my flight!!! lol!!

    Much Love!
