Hello my loves! Today’s post is a collab with the beautiful Claire over at Clarina Beauty! After she won my MAC giveaway lipstick, we had talked about doing a MAC lipstick collection collab, but with my Chile trip looming on the horizon, we just didn’t get around to doing it before I left! As soon as I got back, I contacted her to get it done ASAP because I was so excited for it. Make sure to head over to Claire’s blog to read all about her MAC lipstick collection!
So let’s get on with it, yes?
Aaaah, my beautiful MAC lipsticks… They’re really like my babies, and I treasure them with my life. Looking at this picture, I feel like I’m really missing some purples and plums in my collection, but to be fair, I had Heroine and gave it to Kira because I really didn’t use it and they would appreciate it more. Next on my list to get will be some plum shades for sure!
As you can see, I have a total of ten lipsticks and I love them all. If you noticed, there is a MAC lipstick box in the background of the picture, but that’s actually the color Syrup and I sold it to a friend so I could get a different lipstick, since it’s too similar to Brave and I wouldn’t wear it.
But enough chit chat and let’s move on to the swatches!
First are the nude, MLBB shades. From top to bottom, we have Whirl, Velvet Teddy, Brave and Please Me. Whirl, Velvet Teddy and Please Me are all matte finishes, while Brave is a satin finish. Lucie once described Whirl as the darker, bolder older sister of Velvet Teddy, and she’s definitely right. On me, it’s a beautiful brown nude and my newest addition to the collection! Velvet Teddy is an essential in anyone’s lipstick collection, a perfect nude that looks good on anyone, and Brave and Please Me are more muted nude-ish pinks.
And now for the pinks and reds! From top to bottom, we have: Candy Yum Yum, All Fired Up, Full Fuchsia, Impassioned, Lady Danger and the infamous Ruby Woo. Most of these, except for Candy Yum Yum and Ruby Woo, I got from my ex… at least one good thing to come out of that relationship! Candy Yum Yum and Lady Danger are matte finishes, All Fired Up and Ruby Woo are retro matte finishes, and Full Fuchsia and Impassioned are amplified finishes.
There you have it, folks, my MAC lipstick collection! What do you think I should get next? Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to go read Claire’s post!
