BEAUTY: MAC Lipstick Collection

I don't have a massive lipstick collection as I do tend to find one I like and stick with it but theres no doubt what my favourite brand is, it's MAC.  They have such a wide range of shades and so many formulas that you can always find something that suits you. 


L-R: Myth, Coral Bliss, Brave, Creme D'Nude, Sunny Seoul

MAC Myth is the very first MAC lipstick that I ever purchased and it was for my end of school prom - that's 7 years ago now! I've since re-purchased it as I completely used up my last one at Uni as it was the perfect lipstick with added gloss on top for a night out.  Nowadays I don't tend to wear it as much as I do favour my other lipsticks but I'll always love it.

MAC Coral Bliss is my newest purchase and is one of my favourites.  It's a gorgeous coral shade with pink undertones. It's quite sheer so is very buildable, I've found you need a god couple of coats to get decent colour but personally I don't mind that.  

MAC Brave is my ultimate favourite! I wear it practically every single day as it's the perfect nudey-pink.  It's a satin finish so can be quite drying on the lips but I always use an exfoliator and lip balm to ensure that doesn't happen.  I'm so close to finishing this lipstick and I know I'm going to be re-purchasing it as I use it so much. 

MAC Creme D'Nude is a new one for me and one I'm still quite unsure about it as it is so nude, almost like foundation lips (remember them?) but if only applied lightly, it can look quite lovely, it's one I'm going to have to keep trying out.

MAC Sunny Seoul is one of those impulse blogger purchases, I saw it doing the rounds a year or two ago and realised I needed it and even though it was an impulse buy I completely love it and it's now my go to lipstick on a night out as it's just quite bright enough for me.  Again, I've nearly used it up so will be re-purchasing this one again soon I reckon.

So there we have it, my MAC collection, it may only be small but I do really like all the shades, maybe it is time I added a couple more then, any recommendations then post them in the comments below!

What's your MAC collection like? What's your favourite shade?

  1. I've not yet bought a mac lipstick, my housemates love them though but I'm not going to spend that amount on lippy until I start wearing it regularly.

  3. I would have loved to have seen what they look like on but they all look like lovely colours, such a nice variety! I've been debating whether or not to get coral bliss for a while now, I suppose it's the wrong time of year now haha but maybe next year I will pick that one up!

  4. Brave is on my wish list :) it's kind of similar to my all-time favourite, 'Twig', but it's worth having a subtly different one as it's a look I love :)

  5. I have Faux, which is very similar to Brave. Both are gorgeous and such great shades for the 90's trend everyone seem to be loving at the moment. x
