MAC Lipstick Haul

MAC Lipsticks - Creme Cup, Angel, Please Me, Faux
(Left to Right - Faux, Please Me, Angel, Creme Cup)

I absolutely love MAC lipsticks! They are probably my favourite lipsticks (with Charlotte Tilbury coming up a close second); the shade range is amazing and I really like all of the formulas. I picked up another three whilst replacing my beloved Angel, in the shades Creme Cup, Please Me and Faux. I am a self confessed pink lipstick lover; I tend to stick to neutral shades anyway, but for me pink lips are where it's at. Anything too dark makes me look like I died two days earlier and my now lifeless corpse has come back to life, but I really wish I could feel comfortable in dark colours - everyone else looks amazing in them! I wasn't too sure about Faux as I was worried it was going to be a bit dark, but I really fell in love with the swatch on my hand and luckily when I put it on it was a definite winner for me! 


CREME CUP

MAC Creme Cup Lipstick



I've actually had this once before quite a few years ago and I can't remember what happened to it. I was wearing a darker foundation on the day I took these pictures as I had fake tanned, so I think this shade was bordering on a bit too light. However I think it will look stand out more and look really lovely on my natural skin tone. (Actually can I just confess I don't actually hate Foundation Mouth every now and again.... with a smokey eye? Anyone? Just Me? OK then...)

ANGEL


MAC Angel Lipstick


I could literally go on all day about this lipstick. This is hands down my all-time favourite lipstick and I always have it in my every day makeup bag. I think this is my 5th or 6th one of these, mainly because its the one lipstick that no matter what eye make-up I have on, or whether I've gone overboard with the bronzer (i.e. every time), I know it will work and I don't have to worry. It has come out a bit lighter in this picture than it looks in reality but its just a lovely wearable pink shade and I would definitely recommend it. 

PLEASE ME


MAC Please Me Lipstick


I picked this up as I had seen it online before and after a bit of research I saw that Temptalia had it listed as a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Liv It Up shade from the Hot Lips collection. Liv It Up has been on my wish list since the collection launched, so I couldn't resist this one. It is a matte formula but it definitely isn't drying (even on my scaly lizard lips!) and it's really long lasting. I'm so pleased with this lipstick as I don't have anything like it in my collection and the colour is amazing.

FAUX


MAC Faux Lipstick

As I said before, this is the one I was least sure on, only because it's a lot darker than the shades I normally pick up. However when I put it on I actually really liked it and it's nice to try something darker than what I'm used to. The light kept changing on the day I took the pictures (thanks UK weather), so it looks slightly lighter here than it is in real life, but it gives a good idea of the colour and tone of it. The finish is amazing; it's so creamy and it feels really comfortable on the lips, love it!

I would say these should tide me over on the lipstick front for a while but who am I kidding! What's your favourite MAC lipstick - I'm always looking for suggestions?

    1. Aw thank you so much I just had a look at yours and love your blog too! have been following on Insta for a while now! Yes I'm a bit like that with it, sometimes it can be a bit too light for me! Angel is a good alternative because it's darker or sometimes I prefer Pure Zen as it's is a bit more peachy pink! Xx
