my MAC lipsticks.

Tuesday 22 February 2011

For the past year or so, I have been slowly battling a lipstick obsession. Rimmel, GOSH, ELF, you name a brand, I have a lipstick by it, but my favourite lipstick brand by far is most definitely MAC. Their colour selection is outstanding, and I can't get over the gorgeous application that the 3 MAC lipsticks that I own give me. So here's a little insight into my MAC lippie collection so far...

Shy Girl
'Creamy neutral coral beige (Cremesheen)'
I adore this lippie for a pop of coral-y color when my face is lacking a bit of warmth. Its definitely a unique colour in my collection, a beautiful peach tone and its a world away from my usual fall back nude lipsticks.

Creme Cup
'Light blue pink (Cremesheen)'
This is most definitely a perfect everyday lipstick colour for me, not being too loud, bright or pale, this is a 'my lips, but just a little but better' colour.

'Soft pale pink (Glaze)'
By far my favourite of the bunch is of course Hue, which is much raved about here on Beautylishious. This is just the perfect milky, pale pink, and saves me from a world of boring nudes with a hint of colour!
 *note to self- get over your fear of colourful lipsticks!*

Left to right- Hue, Creme Cup, Shy Girl

I'm always looking for more additions to my MAC lipstick family, with Plink and Lady Danger being high up on my wishlist. Any suggestion of further purchases ladies? :)


  1. They all look really pretty on you; who doesn't love a nude lip?! (saying that, I do look dead when I do, but ohwell) xx

  2. these are lovely! :)
    i done a post on Speak Louder last week, it's a really nice pink, awfully bright though, depends on your taste! :) x

  3. Creme Cup looks lovely! I love Hue too :)
    Snob is a must, its beautiful x

  4. I have 3 mac lipsticks too, unlike you I have loads of bright lippies whereas you have lots of nudes :P I definitely reccommend Ravishing if you want a soft coral x

  5. I need hue in my life, it looks lovely!xx

  6. Hue looks so lovely. I only have two Mac lipsticks, Viva Glam Gaga and Cyber. I love them both but they're totally different, Cyber is an almost black purple and Gaga is a pastel pink - I definitely get more use out of Gaga! x

  7. These are the sort of shades I'm growing to like. I'm not so much of a red lipstick girl. I think I need to get some mac lippies.


  8. These three colours are amazing! I have three as well! I agree they are my favorite lipsticks. I have the Viva Glam Gaga (the pink one, not the new one which I want!) I have Marquise d' from the wonder woman collection, and I have Innocence Beware! from the Venomous Villains collection! So All mine are like collections haha! But I do want to try more! I adore them!

  9. Lovely choice of colours, I want all three of them, esp. Hue it's such a perfect everyday colour! I currently love viva glam cyndi :)

  10. creme cup is probally my favorite mac lipstick. Great colors you have

  11. Lovely shades, these are right up my alley! Will definitely be getting Creme Cup :) Great post! xo

  12. They all look pretty! The only lipstick I have from MAC is Lazy Day, and I love it (=

  13. mac lipsticks are like candy, always more to want ;)

  14. I think creme cup is my favourite of all the above, just wish I could wear nudes! x

  15. so pretty, i live the shy girl ;)
