Looking through my make-up collection I noticed that I do have a lot of lipsticks and I wanted to share with you today my top 4 favourite MAC lipsticks. These are in no particular order, just my top 4 MAC lipsticks that wear the most and absolutely love!
|Hue (glaze), Costa Chic (frost), Russian Red (Matte) and A Perfect Day (amplified)|
(order from left to right)
My first favourite MAC lipstick is the one and only "Hue". This was my first lipstick purchase from MAC and I have gone through 3 of these already. When first buying this I was on the hunt for a pink/nude that could be worn everyday. After hearing so much about this product in the blogging and youtube world I decided to give it ago. It has been one of my favourite lipsticks ever since, and you just can't go wrong when using this lipstick. I don't have to worry about this lipstick smudging much throughout the day because it's so sheer it doesn't create a tell-tale smudge mark on the edges of your lips. The glaze formula is very moisturising and leaves my lips feeling soft, not dry. It's a great everyday shade and will continue to be in my favourites for along time.
Next is "Costa Chic". This is my most recent purchase, and my oh my I do love it! This colour is great for spring/summer. It's such a "pick me up" colour without being too bright or too shimmery. It's a gorgeous pink/coral colour and I think it will compliment nearly all skin-tones. I'm not a massive fan of the frost finish but this is one of the frost lipsticks that I love to wear. I don't find it drying but it definitely isn't that moisturising either. I'd say this is one of my staple lipsticks for the spring/summer.
I have to include Russian Red in with my MAC lipstick favourites. This is a matte finish and I happen to be a huge fan or the Matte finish. Although it does dry out your lips slightly, I find it doesn't dry them out too much as it is still wearable. This has to be my statement red. I prefer blue toned reds as I am fairly pale, and the blue tones also help to make my teeth look whiter (which is an added bonus!!) You only need one swipe on your lips to receive full coverage from this product. I love how you can also mix it up, making it more matte by applying powder over the top or adding a lipglass to make it more like a glaze. I love it!
Finally my last favourite is "A Perfect Day". You may say this looks similar to "Hue" but it is slightly darker, has an amplified finish and doesn't contain as many pinkish tones. It's probably my go to nude, when I don't want much pink on my lips. This however belongs to the Limited Edition "Naturally" collection, which makes me shed a tear when I think about it because I absolutely love this lipstick. Saying that, on more than one occasion I have been able to find this lipstick in the Cosmetic Company Outlets in certain places, so every time I see it, without a doubt, I stock up. It has an amplified finish so gives good colour pay off and is a great everyday colour.
So they were my four favourite MAC lipsticks! Next I hope to pick up Vegas Volt, Up the Amp, Rebel or Girl About Town. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of those! As always I love hearing from you!
All the Best,
