My four MAC lipstick picks



 Hello lovely people, I hope you all had an amaaazing Easter weekend - I actually got really sick last week so I'm recovering, but the fact that I am now fully stocked up on chocolate makes me feel much better. 


I'm excited to get back into blogging now that I've almost finished my second year at uni (EEP!) Time goes sooo quickly - don't get me wrong I love my uni course but it's so stressful 99% of the time, hence why I love just being able to escape to my blogging. I'm looking to invest in a new camera and some lighting so that my picture quality is better, at the minute my camera is an old Sony Cyber-shot at a whopping 14.1 megapixels, haha! If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!






So today I thought I'd do a little post on my four go-to MAC lipsticks, I know I mainly use cruelty free now but I didn't have the heart to bin all of my MAC lipsticks. When I first got a job at 16 I used to looove spending my monthly wage on MAC, and got such a buzz when those black pagages came through the door. The lipsticks were always my go-to so I've built up a little collection. MAC will always have a place in my heart as it's the brand which initially got me into make up. 

I know MAC has a lot more variety in it's products now, but their iconic lipsticks are still to be treasured and not overlooked. And I know a lot of people don't like how pricey they are buuuuut you do get a huge amount of product and a very decent pigment in them. 





Whirl


A beautiful, matte brown which is very buildable. I love this colour because it goes with most looks and looks great on my pale skin tone however I think it suits most skin tones as it could be as dark or as 'light' as you wanted it to be. As with most matte MAC lipsticks the coverage and longevity is amaaaazinng, so beautiful.

Creme d'Nude


Helloooooo gorgeous nude shade. I love that this colour is part of MAC's creme sheen collection as it gives it the ability to be mixed with other colours. I personally love mixing it with 'Morange' from MAC as it creates such a nice peachy colour. However, on it's own this is such a simple, lovely nude shade. I have suuuuch pale skin so this works well for me.

Up The Amp


Part of MAC's amplified creme collection, this purple shade is divine. The coverage is amazing although does need topping up throughout the day. On my pale skin this creates a lovely, dark purple shade perfect for that night time look without being too overbearing. It's also the perfect Autumn/Winter every day lipstick. The fact that it's not matte works well as it doesn't leave flaky, dry lips. 

Dubonnet


Urgh this shade is to die for. It's the most beautiful dark red colour. I actually love the fact that this is part of the amplified creme range as it doesn't dry your lips out at all, making the colour look even better. This shade will work on whatever skin tone you have and is a great, all year round colour to have in your collection. 






Let me know if you have any go-to MAC lipsticks and also any camera recommendations for blogging would be great!

  1. I had to buy a dslr for uni so I'm no able to use it also for blogging, really glad I have it now but if it wasn't for uni I would think it's too expensive. I have a NikonD3100. Canon has also great blogging cameras & lots of bloggers love the Olympus Pen range!

    My go to mac would be Twig! I used to own a few of the viva glam ones but I lost them when I moved out :(

    1. Ooooh very nice! I would love a DSLR but they are a bit out of my price range at the minute (plus I'm a total newbie at photography really so I don't think I'd get the most out of it!)

      I never thought of the Olympus pen range, good suggestion! Thank you!

      Twig is such a beautiful shade! I feel like mac lipsticks can be easily lost though because they are quite compact! I hope you had a lovely Easter x x
