MAC was the first brand that really introduced me to lipstick. There is something about MAC lipsticks that makes them a firm favourite in a lot of people’s collections including mine. Despite a lot of other brands now adopting similar types of finishes as the MAC lipsticks, I think that what’s still so special about MAC is the shade selection – there is literally something for everyone. Whether you’re a nude lipstick lover, a pink lipstick addict, or you prefer a bold berry lip, there’s a shade in this range for you. They are so creamy and comfortable and certainly very collectible. Here are some of my MAC favourites!

Pure Zen – Cremesheen finish:

This is the first ever MAC lipstick that I purchased and it’s a pretty coral-nude shade. The cremesheen finish is probably my favourite formula from MAC as it’s so moisturising and comfortable to wear. This shade is so easy to wear and is a nice way to add a subtle pop of colour.

Honeylove – Matte finish:

Honeylove is a brown nude which pulls nude on some, but more beige on others. It’s creamy despite being a matte formula and is comfortable to wear.

Velvet Teddy – Matte finish:

Velvet Teddy is a pretty brown nude colour, but on me it looks almost like a muted red lip which makes for a great Autumn/Winter shade. Despite it’s Matte formula, I don’t find it drying and it lasts for a long time on the lips.

Creme Cup – Cremesheen finish:

This is a pretty pink lip colour that I think is universally flattering on different skin tones. It’s not too over-poweringly pink but gives a pretty wash of colour to the face. Plus it’s so creamy and easy to wear for days you just want to throw something on.

Creme d’Nude – Cremesheen finish:

Creme d’Nude is a really pretty nude shade that can be quite pale on some. As it’s quite sheer, it also makes quite a good lipstick topper on other shades.

Blankety – Amplified finish:

This is probably my favourite MAC shade at the moment and is the only Amplified finish that I currently own. It’s a warm nude and is like a more pinky-toned cousin of Honeylove. As it’s an amplified finish, it’s intensely buttery and creamy to apply.

Japanese Maple – Cremesheen finish:

This lipstick is the more peachy and slightly more pigmented sister to MAC’s Creme d’Nude. Japanese Maple looks almost identical in the bullet but it pulls more warm.

Modesty – Cremesheen finish:

In case you haven’t already noticed a theme here – I really like the Cremesheen formula in MAC lipsticks… This is a pretty warm mauve shade in the bullet with a glossy sheen.

All in all, MAC lipstick are among some of my favourites in my collection. They are quite reasonably priced and the shade range is amazing. There is a reason why they are such a cult favourite beauty product. If you have any other shade recommendations i’d love to hear them!
