MAC Lipstick Swatches
What's a girl without her one favourite lipstick.. or 10? Probably a lot wealthier! Here is my collection of MAC lipsticks and the swatches of them. It mainly consists of lovely pink and nude colours from their range.
This image above has been taken with the flash on.
The lipsticks are all a variety of different finishes. Down to an Art, Honeylove, Velvet Teddy and Yash all have a matte finish. Creme De La Femme, Sandy B, CB96 are frost lipsticks with a semi-lustrous finish and Myth has a satin finish.
I find that MAC lipsticks have a great colour pay off as they are all very pigmented and they seem to last pretty long before you have to re-apply. I love how they all seem to have a nice creamy formula to them. Also, the fact that MAC have such a vast variety of lipstick colours to choose from is why it tends to be my go-to brand for when I fancy trying out a new one. There's definitely a colour for every occasion!
Each lipstick retails for £17.50 (3g) which is a reasonable price compared to other high end brands. Also, if you didn't know already, MAC have this promotion called "Back to MAC' where if you return six MAC primary packaging containers to one of there stores you will receive a free MAC lipstick of your choice in return and the containers will be recycled. I've done this quite a lot as I use their Studio Fix Fluid Liquid Foundation and also their Powder so over the years I have accumulated a lot of empty containers to trade in for lipstick! Who doesn't love a free lippy?!
The image below has been taken without the flash on so this is how the lipsticks look just in natural daylight. You can see a lot more clearly in this photo that the top four lipsticks have a matte finish and the bottom four have more of a shimmer to them. I'm a sucker for a shimmery lipstick so these four colours are my favourite, however, I do really like Down to an Art which makes your lips look really full and also Honeylove due to it being the perfect nude tone.
Do you own any MAC lipsticks? If not, which brands do you love to buy your lipsticks from? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
