My MAC Lipstick Collection

Hello lovelies, I hope you're well and ready for quite a photo-heavy post! During the last beauty chat on Twitter I asked whether anyone would like to see my MAC lipstick collection, and to my surprise a lot of you replied positively. I've built up a nice little Muji tray of the infamous lipsticks and I thought it would be a good idea to show you guys what I spend my hard-earned cash on! Yes, at £15 a pop I could literally count how much money I've splashed out on these lippies over the years - but my god, they are without a doubt the best long-lasting formulas I've ever tried. And one can never have too many lipsticks...

REDS
RUSSIAN RED (MATTE) - A classic intense bluish-red
LADY DANGER (MATTE) - Vivid bright coral-red
SO CHAUD (MATTE) - Intense reddish-orange
MORANGE (AMPLIFIED) - Loudmouth orange

PINKS
IMPASSIONED (AMPLIFIED) - Amped-up fuchsia
CANDY YUM-YUM (MATTE) - Neon pink
SHOW ORCHID (AMPLIFIED) - Vivid hot pink
CHATTERBOX (AMPLIFIED) - Bright red-pink
SAINT GERMAIN (AMPLIFIED) - Clean pastel pink

CORALS
CORAL BLISS (CREMESHEEN) - Frosted light coral
SEE SHEER (LUSTRE) - Grapefruit pink

NUDES
PATISSERIE (LUSTRE) - Sheer creamy neutral pink
SHY GIRL (CREMESHEEN) - Creamy neutral coral beige
PURE ZEN (CREMESHEEN) - Frosted warm nude
HUE (GLAZE) - Soft pale pink
HONEYLOVE (MATTE) - Light beige tone with rose
CREME D'NUDE (CREMESHEEN) - Pale muted peach beige

DARKS
FILM NOIR (SATIN) - Intense brown
CYBER (SATIN) - Intense blackish-purple
PLUMFUL (LUSTRE) - Blossoming rose plum
SYRUP (LUSTRE) - Cloudy pink
CREME IN YOUR COFFEE (CREMESHEEN) - Creamy mid-toned pink brown

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my collection! Now I want to ask you guys: what is your all-time favourite MAC lipstick? I'm stuck between Chatterbox, Patisserie and Lady Danger - it's so hard to choose just one because there's so many!

MAC lipsticks retail at £15, and are available from MAC stores, counters and online.

  9. I can only dream to build up a collection like this, they are all gorgeous- and this will really help those wanting to splurge a little! My favourite MAC lippy at the moment is "Modest" which is a creme sheen. Love it. Your photography was gorgeous and I am wondering where you got that cute little rabbit and pot. Thank you for the post, I will keep my eye on some of these now!

    1. Thanks Amber! The rabbit ring holder is from BHS, but I know you can get it from NotOnTheHighstreet.com as well! The white pot is from IKEA, as is the artificial plant inside it. They're super handy! I have two others for makeup brush holders xx

    1. Thanks lovely! I love Creme Cup too, but I feel like I have too many similar nudes in my collection already! Xx

  11. WOOOOW! Your collection is fabulous, I love the look of Lady Danger I just don't know if it would suit me :( My all time fave would have to be Creme Cup :)

    1. Thanks Charlee! Lady Danger is such an awesome dramatic colour. If you can get to a store, give it a swatch. Otherwise I know that the Revlon Colour Balm in Audacious is a much cheaper drugstore dupe! Xx

  12. Oh wow! I am SO jealous of your collection! I especially love all the pinks x

  15. Cyber looks so stunning! I've seen a lot of swatches making it look very purple which put me off, but the colouring in your image has convinced me to check it out.

    1. Ooh interesting that you really like the look of Cyber! I haven't worn it in ages but it's very Lorde, isn't it? It's definitely not super purple. It's actually quite dark on the lips! Xx

  18. Damnnnn this looks a good collection! You've covered all bases! I've favourited this on my Bloglovin' so I can find swatches of what I need to get next!

    My favourite MAC lipstick I have is Relentlessy Red, and it's a Retro Matte red and it kind of has a fuschia undertone to it!

    1. Thanks Lauren! Show Orchid and Morange are actually my two newest additions but they fit in rather well. Show Orchid is such a unique colour, almost has flickers of purple in it too - gorgeous! Xx

  20. Love this post! The pinks and reds are probably my favourite and I really like the look of Impassioned so may have to get that one next. I only have one MAC lipstick at the moment so definitely need to get more.

  24. Wow what a collection and what amazing photos. The only shade of yours I have is Impassioned (which is one of my all time favourites) but then I only have 5 shades! I've made a note of Show Orchid as that might just be my next choice of shade x

  33. So many pretties! I do love, love a mac lipstick. My all time favourite will always be Ruby Woo. It's just the perfect red for me but I do have a soft spot for Candy Yum Yum too!

  34. Nothing like stating the obvious but you have a huge mac collection and I don't blame you, you can't beat a Mac Lippie, the colours are so wearable. I quite like jubilee for work days but ruby woo is a gorg one which loads of us love, great pics
