My MAC Lipstick Collection

I really need to invest in a good camera. I tried my best to take photos but shiny objects and iPhone cameras just do not mix, sorry! However I do think that the true colour of the lipsticks can still be seen so I thought this post was still worth while, here is my MAC lipstick collection!


L-R: Up The Amp, Please Me, Pink Plaid, Lovelorn, Cremecup, Saint Germain, Snob, Viva Glam Gaga




I bought my first MAC lipstick around 3 years ago and instantly fell in love, mainly with the smell! However I was a bit disappointed in my colour choice as I had ordered Saint Germain not realising how neon it is. Being 18 and more daring with my lipstick I have grown to love it, especially for the summer time. I specifically love the 'Amplified' finish as I feel like it is not too glossy (I hate glossy) and stays in place. I also love Up The Amp for this reason too, I picked it out on a whim as I wanted to branch out of my usual pink (as you can see many of my collection are similar shades). I am so glad my boyfriend got me it for Christmas because its my favourite right now!

The other two finishes that I love are 'Matte' and 'Satin' as I feel both also aren't too glossy and wont budge from my lips. The 3 colours that I have in these finishes are definitely my go to shades, especially snob. I just think its the perfect cool toned pink and looks great all year round, this is actually the only lipstick I have ever repurchased!

However I really don't like the 'Cremesheen' or 'Lustre' finish. Its a shame because the three shades that I have in these finishes are so pretty but I just cant bring myself to wear them as I know they are so glossy that they will just slide off my lips within 15 minutes. If you like the glossy finish then you will probably love these! I must have liked it at one point because my Viva Glam Gaga has certainly been used a lot ha ha!
