So this was requested by a few of you (those of you who are aware of my hoarding of lipsticks) and I tend to get asked a lot what shade of lipstick i'm wearing when i'm out and about, so after much consideration I narrowed it down to my 5 favourite MAC lipsticks!


I feel like the swatches here make the colours seem a lot more glossy than they actually are so along with each lipstick i've included a try on as well, note all lips are different so it might not look the same on you! 

1. Craving 

This one has to be my all time favourite and i've probably purchased it around 8 times because i wear it almost every single day! It's a colour that can be used both during the day and night and gives a pinky nudey tone that looks great with a bronzed or pink blush and a neutral eye. This lipstick is very similar to two other lipsticks I own captive and plumful but I feel like craving gives a more pigmented colour. 

2. Velvet Teddy 

So this lipstick was recommended to me by my friend Kirsty and after having tried it on at her house I felt like I needed to add this nude lipstick to my collection. I'm usually not a fan of nude's as I feel they wash me out but this one seems to complement most skin tones and also happens to be a favourite of Kendall Jenner! I team this lipstick with the MAC Subculture lip liner but also looks great with whirl.

3. Dare You

My sister actually bought me this for my 19th birthday and i've been in love with it ever since, it's also a bonus that it matches my hair colour! It is one of the "cremesheen" lipsticks so gives off a slightly glossy effect which goes great with the deep red colour. I usually leave this for the night or special occasions and team it with a gold/brown smokey eye or a dark purple smokey eye depending how drastic you want to make your look. This looks great with a slightly darker lip-liner such as Follow your heart or Cherry.

4. Rebel

This is definitely my go to purple lipstick and is great if you want to experiment with a new colour but don't want it to be too out there! It's a dark purple that looks great with a neutral or purple smokey eye and with golden highlighted cheeks. I team this one with the Current MAC lip-liner.


5. Viva Glam 3

I just recently bought this and was the first one I had bought from the viva glam collection. As mentioned I love my dark reds and this is great if you want to go for that gothic vampy look. It's a matte lipstick and looks pretty messy unless you use a lip liner with it and for that I would also recommend using Current in that it matches the shade. Similarly to Rebel this also looks good with a dark smokey eye or a neutral golden brown. 

Hope this was useful to you guys and i'd love to hear what some of your favourite lipsticks are! If there's anything you'd like to request just drop me a message or leave a comment below!
