My MAC Lipstick Collection & Swatches

MAC Lipstick Must Haves

Considering im the girl who didn't own any lipsticks until this past year, i am now obsessed! It wasn't until a year ago i actually started to try more lipsticks and i don't know why it took me so long. That being said i now own five MAC Lipsticks. Alot of people say they are too expensive but i definitely can tell the difference between these and drugstore lipsticks. I am yet to own any of the MAC Lip Liners but they are next on my list. The only shade of lipstick i will never wear is red, it just doesn't suit me no matter what kind of red it is or what my hair colour is. I just end up looking like a clown! So lets see what shades i have...

Velvet Teddy | The shade everyone seems to rave about. I never rushed to buy this shade and it wasn't the first one i bought. 
MAC describe this as a Deep-Tone Beige with a Matte finish. 
On me this comes up quite dark more of a brownish shade. Don't get me wrong it is a lovely shade but probably the one i wear the least.

Faux | I had been on the hunt for a mauve lipstick for so long. I saw this one on Pinterest and ordered it straight away. It has to be one of my favourite lipsticks ever! 
MAC describe this as a Muted Mauve-Pink with a Satin finish. 
The colour of this lipstick is just perfection. I wear this alot and find it definitely compliments my pale complexion.

Honeylove | I was recomended this shade on Twitter by a fellow blogger. I wanted a natural shade that could be worn daily. 
MAC describe this as Light Beige Toned With Rose with a Matte finish. 
This shade is gorgeous. Alot of people say it can wash them out so definitely swatch this one in store before you buy. That being said i did order this one online but im in love with it. Im a MAC NW20 and it looks so pretty. I find it works best when i have contoured so i don't look washed out at all. 

Syrup | This was my first MAC lipstick! I don't know what made me buy this shade but it is still one of my most worn lipsticks. 
MAC describe this as a Cloudy Pink with a Lustre finish. 
This is definitely more of a glossy look whereas Faux is more in-between matte and lustre. On me this looks like it has a slight plum tone to it which i love, especially in a/w. 

Blankety | This is my most recent buy from MAC. I have been wanting a shade similar to Honeylove but with more of a pink tint to it. I had googled swatches and decided to go with this one.
MAC describe it as a Soft Pink Beige with a Amplified Creme finish.
Such a pretty natural shade. This one looks gorgeous on those days i barely wear any makeup and want to look natural. It is again quite pale like Honeylove so definitely swatch in store.

Im so happy with each shade i have picked up. I was surprised Velvet Teddy is the one i use the least but i guess everyone is different. 
What are your favourite MAC Lipsticks?

  7. Faux looks so pretty! I picked up velvet teddy thinking it was going to be my most used one because of how much everyone raved about it but out of my whole collection it's actually my most unused one as well.

  10. Velvet Teddy is one of my favourite shades but I find the matte effect dries my lips out, i've been after Blankety for a while now and think I may have to purchase xo

  15. Ugrh you have an amazing collection, as per the comments you can see we are all very jealous Mac lovers of yours! I still seem to be the only one in the world who doesn't own velvet teddy. I tried my friends on me and I don't think it really suited me but I seriously have to give it another go because that swatch is just too gorgeous! xx
