My Three Favourite MAC Lipsticks
As you have probably guessed from the title and the photograph – I am going to talk about my three favourite MAC lipsticks! Before I started blogging, I only owned one MAC lipstick, and that was Ruby Woo – it is gorgeous indeed, but to me these three are just something out of this world! Since then I have accumulated eight… I mentioned in my previous post 33 Facts About Me that I thought I had nine, so looks like I better go out and buy myself another! hehe.
I do like dupes, because there are a lot of lipstick shades similar to the ones I am showing you. But sometimes I do just like to treat myself with the MAC equivalent, it feels just that little bit more special.
I love love looking at MAC lipstick posts, partly due to my fear of actually going into the store – so I like to look at loads and loads and LOADS of swatches on the internet and often risk buy it and hope for the best that it suits me! I own about two which I don’t like too much on me, but today is about the lipsticks that I just CANNOT STOP WEARING.
These three are just STUNNING. (& boy I don’t stop talking about them on twitter… @veryberrycosmo) My hardest decision when preparing for a night out is which of the three am I going to wear this time?! I think these lipsticks are essential for any girls collection! Plus if you are looking to buy your first ever MAC lipstick I couldn’t recommend one of these more OR all three! You won’t regret it….
Please note, this is what they look like on my lips, but they might not look the same on yours. My lips are naturally really quite red, making it hard for me to suit the paler nude shades.
MAC Chatterbox is a beautiful girly pinky shade. This is the shade of the three, that I am most likely to wear in the day!! I LOVE that about this one. It is an amplified finish, which is definitely my favourite MAC lipstick finish. I would say it suits pale skin more than darker skin, since it might wash out a darker complexion slightly. Only downside with this one is that because it is a really creamy formula, the staying power isn’t the greatest. Which was surprising for me, since amplified finishes usually have INCREDIBLE staying power. But all in all, a beautiful lipstick.
Girl About Town
MAC Girl About Town, where can I start? OH WOW. When I first purchased this lipstick around Autumn last year I was TOTALLY obsessed with it. I still am. It is the PERFECT blue toned fuchsia pink. An amplified finish, that LASTS FOR HOURS. Perfect for the lazy lipstick applier like myself. As far as I am aware it seems to compliment all skin tones, and it goes well with lots of outfits too! (or it does in my wardrobe anyway!!) I LOVE it, the total statement for a girly giggly night out. It needs to be in your make up bag!
MAC Rebel is gorgeous, and kind of sexy…. It is definitely one of the darkest lipsticks I have ever purchased, and WOW I love it. Although if you pat it into the lips rather than gliding it, you can produce a more pinky toned colour. If you do buy this lipstick – do expect lots of compliments whilst wearing it! It is truly stunning. It is a satin finish, making it not too drying but also having that staying power that I love. One thing, it does cling to the bad dry parts of your lips, so exfoliation is key before using this one! SUCH a gorgeous colour, so glad my boyfriend purchased it me for my birthday, I think he wanted me to shut up about how much I wanted it!
Hint away to the partners ladies!! It is a winner, and then they can admire you in it!
Hope you enjoyed reading this post lovelies! People often ask me what lip shades I am wearing in my photos, so I thought I would pop my favourites into a post! All three receive lots of compliments, particularly MAC Rebel.
Do you own any of these lipsticks? Do you have any MAC recommendations for pale skin, I would love to build my collection even more, even if my bank balance doesn’t want to!
Lots of Love,
