BLOGMAS #6 | My Two Favourite MAC Lipsticks | Gift Ideas!

My two favourite MAC Lipsticks

Hellooo! :)

Welcome to my lastest BLOGMAS post. It is definitely edging nearer to christmas because whilst I write this I am shivering under my duvet, my room is freezing :( I have the feeling my radiator isn't working properly.... sigh.. UNILIFE.

Anyway! Todays post is about my two favourite MAC lipsticks. Just in case you would like to ask for one for christmas, or buy one for someone!! And since these are my 2 favourites,  I would recommend both should be added to your collection! :) 

First up, is CREME CUP. 

First point, I apologise for the image (& my eyebrows), it was getting really dark :( I have tried to up to contrast to solve this, but I still wanted a true representation of the colour, so I felt the above was the best I could do!!

I think every blogger and youtuber absolutely loves this shade so it is kind of an unoriginal choice to talk about, but I honestly LOVE this colour. A light blue pinky nude, perfect for work / school because it is natural, but you can also tell when you are wearing it. The saying 'your lips but better' comes to mind about now... I would say it is more suitable for paler to medium toned skin.

It is a creme sheen formula so you can trust that is going to be more moisturising for the lips than other formulas such as matte, but it also doesn't last as long on the lips, so be prepared to be topping up quite often!! 

It is quite a lot of peoples first MAC shades, and I can see why. It is so easy wearing, and applying, it is just WONDERFUL. I am quite a new lipstick wearer, I always used to just buy glosses, so if you are new to lipstick, and want it to be natural, plus fancy treating yourself this Christmas then I would suggest this one!! :)


But then.. if you are feeling something brighter, maybe for a night out?! Then this is STUNNING. It is coming up to the season where there are probably lots of parties... and I know I am going to use it a lot! I think it is my favourite favourite, and I wish I could wear it every every every day!!!

A really gorgeous bright blue fuchsia kind of colour that suits EVERYONE. I have searched the internet & have found that this shade really does suit everyone. I absolutely adore it. It is one of those products that just makes you have that added bit of confidence when you wear it.. BUY BUY BUY IT!! 

It is a MAC amplified finish, which I think may be my favourite. This suggests that it is full of bright colour, which it no doubt is! I think it sits between creme sheen and matte, so it is still moisturising but FULL of beautiful colour with like a glossy sheen <3 You only need one coat of this shade because it is SO PIGMENTED, and glides on so smoothly. Ahhhhh I just LOVE it. (Calm down Kayleigh!!)

What are your MAC lip favourites? I always love to add another to my collection (even though I shouldn't....) 

Will you be asking for this / buying it for a special someone? 

On a final note, I LOVE the quote that is tucked behind the lipsticks on the first image. It is from an article from Cosmo this month on Taylor Swift. (Me getting experimental with my backgrounds you seee...) 

"I'm not lonely, I'm not looking" - you go girl!!
