I put a poll out on Twitter giving you the option of what blog post you would like to see today. My Mac lipstick collection won the poll. Mac lipsticks are something that I have only recently became 'obsessed' with. I have 9 Mac lipsticks all together with different finishes etc. Some are from the regular Mac lipstick range and the others are limited edition.
I really like Mac lipstick packaging as it looks sleek. The lipsticks also have the iconic Mac smell that doesn't fade over time.
Mac lipstick finishes (the ones that I have within my collection)
Sheer (but can be buildable slightly)
Doesn't wear long on the lips
Medium opaque (colour can be built up)
Less drying on the lips
Good colour payoff on the lips
Full colour payoff
Not as opaque
Don't last on the lips very long (so you do need to re apply throughout the day)
This was the first Mac lipstick I ever bought years ago! I must have been about 14. I bought it as Tanya Burr raved about it in her YouTube videos.
This is a 'concealer lips' shade can anyone else remember when that trend was popular?
I used to wear this lipstick when I was younger to tone down the natural redness within my lips.
Since I've gotten older and learned a lot more about makeup I don't wear this shade anymore. Skin tone nudes don't suit me and this shade is really unflattering on me.
This lipstick I never planned on buying infact I never even googled any swatches of it etc. I bought it based on the Mac counter girls recommendation and swatches in store. I originally went to buy Whirl lipstick but that was sold out. Me being obsessed with buying lipstick decided to look for another nude shade. I knew I wanted a brown toned nude as these shades suit me better. When the Mac girl showed me this lipstick I knew I had to buy it. It's the perfect brown toned nude to flatter any skin tones.
This is my favourite nude lipstick to wear, I love it. I use this lipstick quite a lot and its one of my holy grail lipstick shades.
Pink you think?
This shade is a new addition to my collection. I got this lipstick for Christmas as I wanted a bright pink shade. I have worn this once since Christmas and I really like the way it looks.
This has blue undertones to the lipstick and is perfect if you like a bold lip.
In the summer etc I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this lipstick.
This is one of the newer lipstick shades Mac have brought out recently.
Up the Amp
This is one of Mac's iconic lipstick shades. Lots of YouTubers and bloggers rave about this lipstick. I wanted this as I didn't own a purple lipstick from Mac and I gave in to the hype. I googled swatches of this lipstick and swatched it in store before I bought it. This is such a flattering purple lipstick on. This Is a wearable purple for day time etc.
Rebel is another Mac iconic shade that YouTubers and bloggers rave about. This is one of my favourite Mac shades that I own. In the tube it looks scary as it looks really dark. Once swatched/on the lips you can see it's a lot less scary.
This is one of my most used Mac lipstick and it lasts well on the lips (even with eating and drinking)

I bought this lipstick years ago for my prom and it's one of my favourites. This shade is a true 'Barbie pink' and is really flattering. The downside to this lipstick is the fact its limited edition, which means I can't buy it again. Instead I 'ration' my use of this lipstick for 'special occasions' as I don't want to run out of it.

This lipstick is a really bold shade and one to wear during the summer. I really like this shade although if you have dry lips you need to exfoliate. As it will make the dryness on your lips obvious. This lipstick is stunning and again I 'ration' how often I use it, so I don't 'run out' of this.
This lipstick shade is 'your lips but better'. It wears nicely on the lips but you do need to re apply it after a few hours. If I want a neutral lip colour this is the shade I would wear.
Royal Ball Lustre
Can anyone else remember the hype surrounding this Cinderella collection? Everyone was talking about it and waited patiently for it to come online. I was one of those people, I kept refreshing the page waiting for the collection to come online. I managed to get the lipstick that I wanted. I purely bought this lipstick for the packaging as the shade doesn't appeal to me. This was the darker nude out of the 2. I haven't even worn this lipstick, I need to try it over different lip liners. As it's a pretty shade not to wear it.

My overall opinion on Mac lipsticks
I am a really big fan of Mac lipsticks as they are 'affordable' for a high end lipstick. My Mac lipstick collection will continue to grow. I am now one of those people that buys a Mac lipstick whenever I am near a Mac counter (I just can't help myself!)
