My MAC Lipstick Collection

I know it's a bit of a blogger cliché the biggest blogger cliché going. but I've never actually posted about my MAC lipstick collection! It's only a small collection but I think it's very representative of my tastes in lipstick, so I thought I'd share my shades today. I'd love to hear what you think and if there are any other shades you think I need in my collection, so do let me know in the comments!
As you can see, I own a grand total of four MAC lipsticks, all of which I've actually been lucky enough to win over the years - I hadn't realised til I came to do this post that I've never even bought a MAC lipstick! Maybe I should add a fifth to my collection... Two of these are actually Limited Edition, and the other two are part of the permanent collection.
So left to right we have 'Speak Louder', which is permanent, 'Mystical', which was part of 2014's Alluring Aquatics collection, 'Cut A Caper', which was part of 2012's Heavenly Creatures collection, and 'Pink Pearl Pop' which is also permanent. 'Cut A Caper' is a Lustre finish, whilst the other three are all Cremesheens.
I think you can see from the swatches below that they're all quite similar in tone - I definitely favour a pink lip! 'Speak Louder' is the brightest of the four, although once on the lip I've found it to be really wearable. 'Mystical' isn't a shade I would have chosen for myself, but applied lightly it's a really lovely nude, and just goes to show you should push your boundaries occasionally and try new things! I really love the packaging of this, the water droplets are textured and it feels really luxe. 'Cut A Caper' is quite sheer in finish so, although I'm never sure that the shade itself suits me, I think I can still get away with wearing it. 'Pink Pearl Pop' is less of a "pop" than the name might suggest, which disappointed me at first, but it's still a really nice shade for brightening up your face without being too obvious or over-the-top - I think it's actually my most-worn of the four.
In general, I do like the formula of MAC's lipsticks; they tend to be smooth, creamy and easy to apply, with the classic vanilla scent we all know and love. Both the Cremesheens and Lustre are comfortable to wear and non-drying, with the Cremesheens being slightly better-wearing than the Lustre; I can get 3-4 hours from the former, whereas the latter only really lasts an hour or two at the most.
What are your favourite MAC lipstick shades? Do you have any of the lippies in my collection?



  1. Gorgeous collection & Mystical is especially pretty <3 Love how you said that sometimes pushing those boundaries helps us discover new lovely things ;)

  2. Velvet Teddy. If you want to branch out with nudes that's all I need to say, it's so gorgeoussss! Ellie xo

  3. I adore MAC lipsticks however I literally just tweeted two mins ago about a new rival (in my eyes) from UD > http://www.emsmixedbag.com/2016/08/new-urban-decay-vice-collection.html. You have a great collection and I love the shades!


  4. Am I the only one who has never tried a MAC lipstick? Love these shades.

  5. If you ever fancy more of a fuchsia pink from MAC, girl about town is gorgeous! I'm not always sure how much I suit reds so if I want something bold I often go for a brighter pink instead. Em x

  6. Since starting my blog, I'm coming across more and more beauty products that I NEED in my collection! I've never really been big into my makeup, but posts like this remind me how fun it can be! :)

  7. I love Speak Louder, it's a gorgeous colour. I won a Mac voucher once and had so much fun choosing make up from their Cardiff store.

  8. You have some great shades there, I know Rachel quite likes her MAC lipsticks.

  9. Mystical looks like a lovely shade, I have quite a few and D for Danger and Velvet Teddy are my favourites x

  10. I don't own any MAC lippies, but these are all colours I would happily wear.

  11. You literally have all of the shades I want to own. My favourite at the moment is Herione :) x

  12. I really like the look of Mystical, definitely a shade I would wear x

  13. I have only ever had one MAC lipstick and that was ruby woo which I still own to this day. It was pricey so I don't use it as often as I do the others. Loving your collection definitely more than mine

  14. Lovely shades! I have never actually owned a Mac Lipstick but they do look really good quality so maybe I should try!

  15. I've never used Mac, but I love the Pink Pearl Pop and the Speak Louder. I may try them! Specially because you mentioned they are not dried, I love that feature in a lipstick! haha x

  16. Wow your so lucky to win all of those!! Velvet teddy is the best if you want to go for a nude lipstick but creme cup is also a beautiful pink that I recommend. Xxx

  17. These look so pretty! love the pink shades x
