MAC lipsticks will always hold a very special place in my makeup collection. They were the first high-end lipsticks I ever purchased, and despite my makeup choices having matured over the years, thanks to their huge colour range, MAC have remained my go-to brand for lipsticks.
Without a doubt, matte is my favourite finish from MAC’s lipstick collection as I find that all the shades are highly pigmented and very long-lasting. I also find that they’re effortless to apply, which is perfect if touch-ups are ever required!
My all-time favourite lipstick from MAC has to be the shade Mehr. MAC calls this lipstick colour a ‘dirty blue pink’ with a matte finish; however, it does still have a little bit of a moisturising sheen to it, which means unlike some other matte lipsticks, it is non-drying. With a full face of makeup, this colour looks perfect and goes well with my skin tone. If you get time, head to a MAC store and try this shade out!
One lipstick that I have re-purchased many times is in the shade Faux. It’s a perfect ‘my lips but better’ nude. This was one of the first MAC lipsticks I owned and I often wear this if I just don’t know what look to go for. I’m not embarrassed to admit that I do have two of these, just in case one runs out!
Following the theme of nude lips, I personally enjoy a pink nude and the perfect option for this is MAC’s Pink Plaid. The pigmentation in this shade is great and a single swipe gives you all the colour you need. I find this shade looks fabulous with a warmed up, ‘bronze goddess’ makeup look.
Moving away from the nude/pink shades and onto bolder colours Russian Redis a great choice for when I feel like adding a splash of colour to my look. This is probably one of the most popular shades of red that MAC does, and it is definitely a winner in my eyes! Considering that the finish of this lipstick is matte, it glides smoothly onto the lips without any tugging or pulling. If you’re looking for a red lipstick, it’s the perfect vivid, blue-toned red and certainly the type that will make your teeth look super-white.
If you’re over the nudes and the reds for 2017 and want something a little more daring, my final favourite for you all is Men Love Mystery. You know when you see a lipstick in store and just fall in love with the shade? This happened to me! Men Love Mystery is described as a lavender violet, medium-dark purple. It’s a matte shade that goes on like all of the mattes from MAC, opaque but creamy! If you’re into purple lipstick, you need to try this!
