My Mac lipstick collection

Getting your first Mac lipstick is a big deal am I right? The first shade I ever got was Modesty for my 15th birthday and from there the addiction grew! Although my collection is probably minuscule to some people I like the amount I have and it means I can get use out of all of them. I currently have 5 normal lipsticks and 4 mini ones from the Christmas nutcracker sweet collection.


I will warn you now that I'm absolutely horrendous at describing things in general but especially colours so you have been warned! Also I know that the picture makes them all look pretty much the exact same nude shade but just wait for the swatches and you'll see they are in fact different.
Modesty: The exact definition of a pink nude your lips but better colour. Cremesheen finish.

Brave: A dark pink colour but I'd still class it as a nude. Satin finish.

Velvet Teddy: The perfect orangey brown nude although it seems to look different on everyone. Matte finish.

Twig: A brownish pink shade. Satin finish.

Mehr: Pretty blue toned pink, similar to Brave but darker. Matte finish.

Crème cup: Very light baby pink shade, quite sheer. Cremesheen finish.

Kinda sexy: Pinky orange shade which seems to look more orange on tanned skin. Matte finish.

Nouvelle vogue: Blue toned bright pink shade, was limited edition though so you can't get your hands on this anymore. Matte finish.

Whirl: A deep rose shade, cross between and red and a brown. Matte finish.
I do love all of my Mac lipsticks with Matte being my favourite finish as I love how this makes them look on my lips and the formula isn't drying at all. Whirl and Velvet Teddy are definitely my two most worn shades as they just seem to go with everything and if I were to recommend any shades it would be those two.

I definitely want to keep adding to my collection so let me know your favourite Mac lippie so I can swatch it next time I go in the shop and as always, thanks for reading!

  1. Lovely MAC lipstick collection! I have 8 at the moment but it grows often! My favourite is Velvet Teddy but I've been loving Modesty too though lately because it's quite new and I really like it! X

  4. I only have one Mac lippy and its Ruby Woo, I love it so much and had it for ages. Mac Lipsticks are so nice to use, shame they're so expensive in comparison to drugstore.

  7. I feel like my M.A.C lipstick collection is about to go through a massive growth spurt (mostly for the fact that I haven't brought one in nearly a year and it's making me uncomfortable). I currently have 6 full sized MAC lipsticks and my favourites are Velvet Teddy, So Chaud and Men Love Mystery.

  9. I'm not sure I can remember buying my first MAC lipstick but I'm sure it was a shade called Speed Dial! I am in love with Whirl at the moment.
