MAC Lipstick Collection

I don't know about you, but there's just something really satisfying about buying a new lipstick. I won't lie, it takes me a good few weeks to actually ruin the 'perfection' of a new lipstick, but once I do i'll be wearing that certain shade daily.

MAC has been a brand that I've loved for quite a long time actually, initially it was the vast amount of different colours that drew me in, well that and the packaging. I just think the black and silver go really well together, and looks quite expensive. But now after repurchasing them for a few years, it's the quality that keeps bringing me back. I recently repurchased another tube of MAC'S Creme Cup, I want to say its the third tube?! That must tell you how much I love the shade and how well it lasts on. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved my drug store lipsticks too- but there's nothing like purchasing a new one from MAC.

I don't have the biggest collection, in fact, it used to be a lot bigger. Truth is I have over 60 lipsticks from different brands at the moment (yep, I know, extreme) so I'm trying to not buy any more. However the shades I do have from MAC are my absolute favourites, so I thought I would share them with you, and how I store them.

Back Row - Relentlessly Red - Diva - Flat out Fabulous 
Front Row - All Fired Up - Morange - Cremecup 

Relentlessly Red - Retro Matte
I love this one, especially in the summer months. It's perfect on a night out as it just doesn't budge from your lips. 

Diva - Matte 
I won't lie, if this shade wasn't a matte I definitely wouldn't love it as much as I do. It's so easy to apply because it just doesn't bleed, being a darker colour that's something you definitely don't want. This shade often comes out in the colder months but I have been known to wear this through the summer in the evenings too. The only downside is it can be a little drying if you aren't prepared before hand (wearing a lip balm!)

Flat out Fabulous - Retro Matte
One of my most daring shades, a bright purple. This is the second tube I've repurchased because I love it so much, although saying that I do find it really hard to match with outfits so I don't wear it as much as I should do. First world problems haha.. I haven't actually touched this colour since I bought it around 3 months ago, hopefully i'll make use of it this summer. 

All Fired Up - Retro Matte 
This one is really similar in photos to Relentlessly Red but if you're a true lipstick lover you'll be able to tell that it's slightly darker. Matt laughs at me for saying that because he can't tell the difference, but if you know you know right?! 

Morange - Amplified 
My all time favourite holiday shade. I wore this every single evening when I went to Mexico as this shade looks incredible with a tan. I do love me an orange lipstick, and Morange is probably my favourite. Again, it's build-able, so if you're not keen on sporting a bright orange lip it'll still work well for you. 

Cremecup - Cremesheen
If you're new to MAC or lipsticks in general then I'd say Cremecup is the perfect beginners shade, it suits pretty much every skin tone, and is the most perfect pale pink shade. Being naturally tanned (ish) I thought this would look like I'd put foundation over my lips, (remember that trend?!) but it doesn't thank the lord, it's one of my fave nudes; I reach for this shade when I want a more subtle every day look. & this is actually my 4th tube!

You can probably tell I do love my bright bold colours, I never used to be this brave.. In fact I used to be the kind of person that only used to wear a lip balm. Now look at me, owning bright orange's and reds haha. The good thing with these is that they're build-able, so even if you aren't that confident with wearing such a bright colour, you can still get away with wearing them.

Storage wise, I keep the lipsticks in a acrylic lipstick holder, I think I bought mine from Tiger around 2 years for £4 each, they still have them and they're the cheapest ones I've found. Ive had mine for a while now and they're still going strong! I wouldn't store them any other way because, well whats the point of buying nice lipsticks if you can't have them on display on your dressing table, right?!
