My MAC Lipstick Collection So Far....

Hi beaut's!

You may remember quite some time ago I did a post on 'My MAC Collection So Far', but since then I decided that I wanted to start collecting Mac lipsticks so I thought I would share with you all what shades I have so far. This is in no way going to be a large Mac Lipstick Collection, I read some peoples collections and I'm left lusting after their 30 Mac lipsticks when I'm over here with my 8 ha ha but I'm so keen on adding to my collection and I thought documenting what I have so far would be kind of cool.

From Left to Right - Brave, Faux, Jubilee, Mehr, Syrup, Viva Glam V, Viva Glam I, Whirl 

As you can see I'm pretty much obsessed with pink toned lipsticks, I just find they suit me the best and go with most makeup looks I do. I do have a couple of nudes that I would say are my holy grail nudes because I find theres only a select few shades of nude that suit me. Anywhoooo onto the shade rundown....

Brave - Arhhhh Brave, this is actually my all time favourite lipstick out of all the lipsticks I own, it's a medium pink that has been tinged with brown and its so versatile, I can wear Brave literally anytime of day to any occasion. The finish of Brave is a satin which is my favourite of all the finishes, I just find satins feel like a semi-matte but they aren't drying in the slightest and they last on me for hours.

Faux - Faux is actually very similar to Brave but I find it's a smidge lighter, it's a pretty muted mauve-pink with that gorgeous satin finish that I love. I find that both Brave and Faux are very "Kylie Jenner" esk so if your love that look as much as I do then you defitnly need to pick either one of them up! 

Jubilee - If your looking for sheer nude beige with slight peahcy tones then Jubilee will be for you. I opted for this shade a little while back because I wanted something nude that was quite sheer and I knew a lustre finish would help me achieve that, opaque nudes really don't suit at all you see.

Mehr - I have been obsessed with wearing Mehr at the moment, it's described as a dirty pink shade which I think is because it is quite a deep shade of pink with a slight brown-y undertone, again I find this great to wear day or night for any occasion, it goes with everything. The finish is matte and I have to say Mac's matte finishes really impressed me, they go on quite creamy and don't drag on the lips at all and set to a comfortable matte finish without being drying.

Syrup - Mac describe Syrup as a cloudy pink but on me it looks more like a very sheer dusky pink/berry shade, the finish is a lustre which I love because they are so light, smooth, moisturising glossy and non-sticky, they actually feel more like a lip balm to be honest however that does hinder the lasting power but I don't mind regular top ups when the shade feels and looks so nice.

Viva Glam V -  Viva Glam V is such a gorgeous neutral pink shade that actually suits my skin tone really well, it does have some ever so slight gold glitters running through it but nothing over the top and the lustre finish again provides that moisturising, glossy feel without being sticky! I would say Viva Glam V is my all time favourite nude lipstick and as you can see from the bullet pictured above I've nearly used it all up, arrhhh sad face!

Viva Glam I - Viva Glam I is a deep, vampy red shade with brown undertones and has a lovely matte finish. I only really find use for this lipstick on evenings out because it just looks so dramatic on me and is such a statement lip, it is so beautiful though!

Whirl - Lastly I have Whirl which is my most recent mac lipstick purchase, in fact I haven't even had it 2 weeks yet. Whirl is such a 90's throwback shade for me and that's why I was drawn to it so much, its described as a "dirty rose" and is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. I actually like to wear this quite sheer so once Ive applied it I use a cotton bud just to really blend it into my lips, this way it looks a lot more of a stubtle rosy brown shade than just a dramatic brown!
And there you have it beaut's, all of the Mac lipsticks I currently own. I cant wait to build up more of a collection so I'd love some recommendations. 

What's your favourite Mac lipstick beaut's?

  1. MAC lipstick collection posts have to by far be my favourite to read! I've had Mehr and Brave on my list to buy next as I can't believe I don't own them already! I love the look of Viva Glam V as well! I did a collection post here: http://www.iridescentplaces.com/2016/04/my-mac-lipstick-collection.html and I really think you need to try out Fanfare! It's a gorgeous cremesheen finish pink lip perfect for this time of the year! :) xx

  4. Viva Glam V reminds me of Mac Patiserie but I really love the look of Viva Glam 1 it really is a statement shade to wear. I think I'll have to swatch Mehr as that looks beautiful.

  5. Love the look of Faux! Such a nice shade! I have nearly all of these (oops), but Mehr and Brave are some of my all time faves. I remember the hype over Whirl, I forgot about it actually. You've reminded me how nice it is xx
