Beauty: Mac Lipstick Collection

My most loved make up item has definitely got to be lipsticks and I've accumulated a fair share over the years!  Some of my favourite lipsticks to buy are from Mac mainly due to the huge selection of shades they have on offer. Although I don't have as many Mac lipsticks as some people, I still think my stash is still a tad excessive and I thought I'd share them with you today. At the end I'll also include some swatches so you can get a better idea of the colours. 

1. Starting off with the nudes....Creme D'Nude. This is a creamsheen formula which I think is my favourite of the Mac lipstick formulas. This is a very white toned nude and I did use to wear this a lot when I first got it but now I never find myself reaching for it. 

2. Velvet Teddy. This is another nude but it is more on the brown nude side. I like to wear this when I'm having a natural make up day. It's apparently a favourite of Megan Fox, which is half the reason I bought it! The formula of this one is matte and I do find it slightly drying on the lips.

3. Onto corals/orange...  Coral Bliss. This is a bold statement but I think this is my favourite Mac lipstick. It's a gorgeous coral colour which I find the perfect shade for Summer but is also wearable all year round.  It's a cremesheen formula so gives the perfect about of colour and leaves your lips feeling nourished. 

4. Costa Chic. Another coral but this is definitely brighter than coral bliss. This is a frost formula and definitely does have quite a pearly finish. This is quite a bold coral and is a nice shade for the Summer when paired with quite a neutral make up look. 

5. Onto pinks...Angel. This was the very first Mac lipstick that I bought and is apparently Kim K's fave but this was not what swayed me to buy it! This is quite a medium, soft pink and again it's a frost formula but I don't find this as noticeably frosty as Costa Chic is. I think this shade is perfect for people with fair to medium skin tones. 

6. Please Me. I would describe this as a medium pink, which has a matte formula but I feel this one does have a slight sheen to it and doesn't feel drying like Velvet Teddy. For me this is a perfect daytime pink! 

7. My only red....Ruby Woo. This is a bright, blue based red and another matte formula, but again I don't find this one too drying on the lips. This lipstick is highly pigmented but I do find it works for both day and night.

So that's all my Mac lipsticks! I'm got my eyes on a few more so there may be a few more additions to this soon! Do you have any favourite Mac lipsticks which I don't currently own?
