I’m a huge fan of Mac lipsticks and they’re definitely the most worn lipsticks in my collection.
I have a tendency to always go for pale pink shades, but there are some different(ish) shades in there too!
I also have the shade Blankety, but it broke so it’s currently mashed up in a tub which I still use with a lip brush, as I couldn’t bear throwing it away!
But it just wouldn’t have made a nice photograph so I haven’t included it in this post!
Mac High Strung (Frost)
High Strung is a recent addition to my Mac lipsticks and I love its unique shade which is a deep silver–pink with, in my opinion; a kind of ‘metallic’ tone to it, which I love. It also has a glossy finish with a little shimmer to it and it’s just such a beautiful shade.
Mac Angel (Frost)
Angel is another new addition and is my perfect everyday pink! It’s a light, creamy, pale–pink with a frost finish which leaves a glossy sheen and feels lovely and smooth on the lips. Its definitely become one of my favourite ‘go-to’ lipsticks for everyday wear.
Mac Politely Pink (Lustre)
Politely Pink is a pale, pearly pink with shimmer. I’d say it’s cool toned and has a slightly silvery tint to it. I think this shade looks amazing with a smokey eye and pink blush!
I love this for nights out too, but when I wear it on a night out I team it with a slightly darker lip liner, as it is a rather pale shade so I find it needs blending in with a lip liner slightly to stop it looking too pale — especially in pictures.
I do love this shade though and find it easy to wear during the day for a subtle, pale pink wash of colour.
Mac Snob (Satin)
Snob was one of my first Mac lipsticks and will always be a favourite! It’s such a girly pink and I love wearing it! I would describe it as a cool–toned light pink and it has a satin finish so it leaves a lovely shine too.
Mac Crème Cup (Cremesheen)
Crème Cup is a light blue–toned pale pink and is another gorgeous everyday colour. I think it’s safe to say I’m a fan of pale pink lipsticks!
Mac Hibiscus (Cremesheen) – Limited Edition; now discontinued
This stunning shade was from the Surf Baby! Collection years ago and is now discontinued. I know I’ve had it for ages but it’s still in my collection as I just love it (and it’s always handy to keep older Mac products for taking back the packaging!), and although I rarely wear bright lipsticks; when I do fancy wearing a bold lip I will come to this!
It’s a stunning bright orange–coral and I would say it’s more on the orangey–red kind of shade, with a cremesheen finish so it has a lovely — slightly glossy — sheen to it. It’s just such a unique shade and offers something a little different to just wearing a red lip.
I also have the beautiful ‘6 Preferred Pinks’ Pro Lip Palette too, which I wrote a post on ages ago here, if you want to take a look.
So thats’s my current Mac lipstick collection! It’s just almost impossible to walk past a Mac counter without being drawn into it, so I’m sure I’ll be adding to my collection again very soon!
