Hi lovelies, I'm showing you my updated MAC lipstick collection today. The last time I showed you my collection was over a year ago, you can read the post here, since then I've only added four but seen as though I now have ten I wanted to talk through which ones I would recommend, which finishes are my favourite and which ones I use the most.
Velvet Teddy (Matte)
First up is of course, Velvet Teddy. The matte shade by MAC is probably the most well known on the market thanks to the queen of lips, Kylie Jenner. I love this nude shade, I wear it pretty much every time I go out on a night out or to a special occasion. Because I'm pale, I don't think the shade at all suits me when I'm not wearing false tan so I tend to stay away when my face is pale. Other than that, you can tell, its my most used MAC lipstick. I reckon this is one of their shades which looks different on different people but I'd definitely pick it up if you're in need of a good matte neutral shade.
As much as I love the shade, I would prefer something which is a little bit more brown toned as I feel that warmer/pinkish tones on pale skin clash a bit. I'm hoping to pick up Twig or Honeylove next and try those out.
Faux has a satin finish, which actually used to be my one of my favourite finishes, until matte took over. I do still like the satin lipsticks, but I think they're a little bit too glossy on the lips.
Vegas Volt (Amplified)
MAC Red (Satin)
Russian Red (Matte)
Viva Glam 1 (Matte)
Unfortunately this one is limited edition but this is probably my second most used red. Its basically Russian Red but darker and less blue toned. I try not to use it as much because I love it and I really don't want it to run out, it'll always be one of my favourites.
Media is by far the darkest MAC lipstick I own (in fact I think its the darkest out of all my lipsticks). In the tube it looks almost close to black but its actually slightly lighter on the lips. I rarely wear this, as like I said I tend to stick with the nudes now, but I think its a bit of fun and a shade you can be creative with (I wore it when I dressed as Black Swan for a fancy dress party).
MAC lipsticks currently retail at £15.50 in the UK and can be purchased in store, on the MAC Cosmetics website, and in Debenhams.
