I was never the biggest fan of lipsticks until around 2 years ago. They just never seemed to appeal to me and you wouldn’t see me perusing the makeup aisles looking for that perfect my-lips-but-better lipstick shade. I was more into lip glosses but found that I was having the hardest time trying to find one that had good pigmentation, wasn’t too sticky but just sticky enough that it would still last a while on the lips. One day I took a trip to the MAC store and had a look over all of their shades and finally caved and bought the shade Creme Cup. That day was the day my lipstick obsession was born. Now I don’t have a very large MAC lipstick collection but that is due to me making sure that the shades I do buy are ones that I am going to wear and love for a long time to come.
Hue is a shade that I am sure most of you are familiar with. I don’t reach for this shade as much as some others in my collection, but when I want that very nude lip look then I always grab for this. It works great as a base for other lipsticks or lip glosses as well, and is good to even lighten up a lip colour.
Creme Cup is the most perfect shade of pink I think I have ever found. It goes with almost any makeup look and is my fail safe lipstick pick. If you are new to MAC lipsticks, I highly recommend starting with this one.
Peach Blossom is just as it sounds. It’s a really lovely nude peach shade that is much more on the wearable side than Hue. This too is one of those shades that can be paired with many makeup looks and doesn’t look too nude.
Syrup is a bloggers favourite, and after seeing tons of reviews I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this shade. It gives your lips that lovely tint of plum while still being sheer and is one of those my lips only better shades.
Plumful is a bit darker than Syrup and has more of a pink base to it. This has quickly become one of my favourite lipsticks since it is so appropriate for the Winter months! It’s finish makes your lips look very glossy and full and I love it.
Rebel‘s deep purple hue has become a hit in the past few years. It’s a go-to staple for the Fall and Winter for those who enjoy vampier shades and looks great on it’s own or paired with a darker lip liner for that ombre effect.
Fashion Revival is a dark raspberry shade with a hint of purple. It can lean more purple or red depending on your skin tone and it’s matte finish gives that effortlessly chic vibe to it.
So that is my MAC lipstick collection and I hope some of you maybe found this helpful if you’re looking for new shades to try, or if it’s your first time purchasing a lip colour from MAC. I am always on the lookout for new shades to add to my stash so please let me know your recommendations on which lipstick I should try next!
