MAC Lipstick Collection

What is there to say about MAC lipsticks that hasn't been said before. The variety they offer is stunning and their formulations are something to be rivalled. Over the years I have built up a collection of them and love them all. Just something about them makes your lips feel special!
I love the Amplified Creme and Cremesheen formulas because they are more moisturizing, but the others like Glaze, Matte and Frost are wonderful as well, just like all the lipsticks MAC makes. 

Nudes and Pinks

My all time favourite nude lipstick of all the lipsticks is Pure Decoration! It is a beautiful shade that doesn't wash me out, and adds a look a "completeness" to an everyday face. I always get compliments when I where Candy Yum-Yum because it is just such a beautiful vibrant, hot pink. Saint Germain and Girl Next Door are lighter, more "Barbie-doll" pinks. 

Purples and Reds
Left to Right: Sandy "B",  Pervette, Viva Glam Nicki 2, Asian Flower, Up the Amp, Odyssey, Amorous, New York Apple, Feelin' So Good

I tried to get my hands on Heroine when it was re-released but the store had sold out by the time I got there, so the lovely MAC lady recommend Up the Amp paired with the Magenta lip pencil as an alternative. I like the way they work together and I think they do a good job of replicating Heroine, but I wear Up the Amp alone too cause it is just as nice. 
Amorous and New York Apple are my favourite dark colours. Amourous is kind of like a my-lips-but-better-but-darker (if you will) and New York Apple is has some gold shine which sets it apart from other reds. 

Left to Right: Sweet & Sour, Sounds Like Noise, Morange

Sweet and Sour is a nice nude with an orange tinge for everyday wear, where as Sounds Like Noise and Morange are more dramatic oranges good for making a statement or brightening up your day!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

What're your favourite MAC lipsticks?

Thanks for hanging out!


  1. wow! and you also have so many nudes!! i have one (Innocence Beware, by mac) and a half (if we consider a random creamy peachy colour like a nude) and i am still not sure if i like them :S
    that Sweet and Sour shade looks pretty nice tho..

    1. I am pretty lazy and think nudes are the easiest to apply without being too careful, haha.
      I don't love their "Frost" formulas cause I find them drying, but the "Amplified Cremesheen's" are nice!
      Thanks for the comment btw :)
