Mac lipstick collection: lip swatches and review

Hi everyone!

I thought I would share with you my Mac lipstick collection and post some pictures with them on my lips! (Excuse the poor lip swatches, my lips were dead!) Hopefully you find it useful :)

Also made a youtube video if you'd like to watch:

Left to right: Creme d'nude, creme cup, shy girl, hue, angel, kinda sexy, kinda sexy, pretty please and viva glam gaga (LE)

Creme d'nude
Creme d'nude: This lipstick has a creme sheen finish and is described as a pale muted peach beige. This is the perfect type of lip color whenever you decide to wear a smokey eye! It feels moisturizing on the lips (not drying at all) but doesn't last the longest.

Creme cup
 Creme cup: It also has a cremesheen finish and is described as a light blue pink. Looks beautiful as an everyday lip color!

Shy girl
Shy girl: Again a cremesheen finish! Mac describes it as a creamy neutral coral beige. I personally prefer it when I have a bit of a tan because otherwise it looks a little too orangy on my skin tone.
 Hue: This lipstick has a glaze finish so it's not as pigmented. It is described as a soft pale pink and again it is a lovely nude color.

Angel: It apparently is a frost finish but it really isn't (I HATE frost finishes) there's no sparkles, it basically looks like a cremesheen to me. It is described as a soft pink and that's what it is. Again a perfect everyday color.

Kinda sexy
 Kinda sexy: This one has a matte finish so it is a little on the drying side but will last longer that any other finish. It is described as a neutral pinky rose, although it looks a lot warmer on my skin tone.

Pretty please
Pretty please: Lustre finish which means it is a really creamy and shiny. It is described as a pale pink pearl. It's one of the first shade I bought after seeing someone wearing it on youtube. This is a shade that I now look at and I'm wondering "What the heck was I thinking?!" On the lips it's actually not that bad but in the tube it looks like a white shade with a pearl finish.

Viva Glam Gaga (LE)
Viva Glam Gaga: This is the only two limited edition lipsticks I own. It is another lustre finish and a true baby blue toned pink. Surprisingly it doesn't look that bright on my skin tone.

Second row L-R: Speed dial, viva glam nicki (LE),  lady danger, vegas volt, girl about town, candy yum-yum, rebel and ruby woo.
Speed dial
Speed dial: Again a cremesheen (one of my favorite finish!). Mac describe this lipstick as a light blue pink. On my skin tone it's more of a mid tone and not so much a light pink.

Viva glam Nicki (LE)
 Viva glam nick: This is a vibrant medium pink with subtle yellow undertones.  It has a satin finish, which means it has a semi-matte finish; there’s a natural sheen but nothing glossy or shimmery. The color coverage is opaque, and it applies evenly. 

L-R: Viva Glam Nicki (LE), Speed dial, Viva Glam Gaga (LE), Pretty Please, Kinda Sexy, Angel, Hue, Shy girl, Creme Cup, Creme d'nude.
Vegas volt
Vegas volt: Amplified creme finish which means it's a really pigmented formula without being drying. It is described as a full power coral and it is on the warm side.

Lady danger
Lady danger: Matte finish which means it will last for hours but will be a bit drying. It is described as a vivid bright coral-red. Looks GORGEOUS with a tan!

Girl about town
 Girl about town: Amplified creme which again means it's really pigmented, yet creamy! It is described as a bright blue fuchsia. It looks so beautiful and leaves a beautiful stain on your lips after a few hours!

Candy Yum-Yum
Candy Yum-Yum: Matte finish which again means pigmented, opaque but a bit drying after a while. It's described as a neon pink and it is what it is! You will clearly make heads turn when you wear this in public.


Rebel: Satin finish which means it's not really shiny, but yet more creamy than a matte finish. This mid toned cream plum color can be pretty sheer or built up as a deeper color. After a few hours this will leave a beautiful stain on your lips!

Ruby Woo

Ruby Woo: Matte finish, this is the most drying of them all but it looks so good! It is described as a vivd blue-red. This is a red that would look amazing on anyone!

L-R: Ruby Woo, Rebel, Candy Yum-Yum, Girl about town, Vegas Volt and Lady Danger.

Which one should I get next?
Which ones are your favourites?

Hope you enjoyed!
Em :)
