MAC Lipstick Collection...

Recently I have come to realise that I may in fact have a minor addiction for buying M.A.C lippies! I don't know what it is about them, but seeing row after row of beautiful lipsticks I can't help but try a few out, and of course, that leads to a purchase or too. What I love about MAC in particular is that they are such great quality, I love how they come in different textures such as matte, satin, and crème sheen. I currently have a small collection, the first, is viva glam 5, a shimmery lipstick which is designed to bring out your natural lip colour and leave them with a lovely gloss finish. Number 2 is crème sheen crème cup, which I have heard is very popular. For day to day use it is perfect, I am a massive fan of nude/pink lips and this one is just beautiful! For evening wear I have Ruby Woo, every girl needs a red lipstick in their make up bag and this one is so bold, the blue under tones also ensure your teeth look whiter too! The only thing with this one is that you do need to apply a lip balm before using to ensure a smooth application as the texture is matte, I use a Nivia lip balm or EOS balm, I would stay clear of Vaseline and carmex though as they are a bit runny and I find they can sometimes make the lipstick run a little. Finally is my most recent purchase, the satin Rebel lipstick. The colour is a deep purple/ pink colour which I love, I had never been too bold with lipsticks before and used to just stick to neutrals, but having bought Ruby Woo, I thought, why not?! Apart from the £15 price tag which is definitely very expensive, they are definitely worth it, I must admit I have not yet bought into the whole range of cosmetics as this would definitely be a dangerous buying addiction! Do you have any MAC lipsticks? Do you have a fave?
Matte 'Ruby Woo'- £15
Satin 'Rebel'- £15
crème sheen- 'Crème cup'- £15
Viva Glam- '5'- £15

    1. Ooo that is interesting, I guess I just thought that I would use the rest of the range too quickly and then get stuck in a rut of buying and buying again which I unfortunately I cannot afford, whereas you can alternate between lipstick colours I guess! Thanks for commenting Anna Maria :)

    1. Yes that is very true, the only downside is the matte texture but that can be resolved with lip balm :) Yes I have heard of that one, it looks amazing! Thanks for commenting Katie :)

    1. Hehe, it is a terrible buying habit! I didn't used to see the point in lipsticks and couldn't really be bothered with them, just sticking to a lip balm for the daytime, but now I am really enjoying experimenting with different bolder colours for dressing up night time and special occasion outfits. Thanks for commenting Karina! :) xxxx

  11. Oohh, liking those colors. I too am addicted to buying lip stuff, from lipstick to lipgloss. I bought a lot of the Milani lipsticks. I'm tempted to buy some of those MAC lippie but I still have lots to use. >_< Great review!
