My Favourite MAC Lipsticks + Win a MAC Lippie of Your Choice!!

Hi, everyone! I woke this morning to news that it's National Lipstick Day! If there were ever a random made-up holiday that was made for me, this is it! Instead of basking alone in my lipstick stash, I thought I'd share some of my love and obsession with you!


I chose to feature MAC Lipsticks for this post because they are so incredibly iconic and are by far the most populous brand in my collection. I just counted and I own over 30!! The shades and finishes are unique, with some ultra flattering neutrals and tons of the vibrant colours that I adore. So to celebrate National Lipstick Day, I thought I'd feature my Top 10 MAC Lipsticks and give you the chance to win a MAC lippie of your choice!!


My Top 10


MAC Satin Lipstick in Brave
On me, it's the ultimate nude-ish neutral! One part brown, one part pink, one part beige, one part mauve- it's perfectly flattering, goes with everything, and never washes me out (like most nudes do).

MAC Matte Lipstick in Pink Pigeon
Vibrant, matte pink perfection! It's a cooler bright pink that's matte, but not flat. It just screams Summer!

MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel
My favourite berry lipstick, period. Not too vampy, there is just enough reddish pink to it to give it life. I think this would be flattering on just about anyone! 

MAC Matte Lipstick in Have Your Cake
Perhaps my favourite lipstick of this year! It's an amazing magenta violet with a soft matte finish. Totally unique! Unfortunately, this one was limited edition. So hope they bring it back!

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Lickable
This might be my oldest MAC lipstick- as per the tiny nub remaining! It's a gorgeous blue-toned fuchsia with subtle silvery shimmer. It brightens up the face so nicely without being overpowering!

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Impassioned
A stunning vivid pinky coral that makes a statement- it embodies everything I love about bright lipsticks! This is the kind of shade I'd encourage everyone to try- put aside your fear of brights! 

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Crosswires
This is such a pretty, versatile, semi-sheer pinky coral shade. It's wonderful for Springtime, but I wear it year-round. Warm, but not overly so- this could work for anyone
!

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Vegas Volt
This is the most incredible neon orange coral. It looks amazing with a tan but is equally flattering and brightening when I'm pale as can be. It's bold and so much fun! 

MAC Matte Lipstick in Lady Danger
The ultimate retro orange red! Like all of MAC's matte lipsticks, it has a subtle sheen and doesn't dry out my lips. It is wonderfully pigmented and very glamorous!

MAC Lustre Lipstick in Ladybug
Another old favourite! It's a lovely semi-sheer slightly orange red that is so, so easy to wear. It also has a slightly vintage feel and is the perfect beginner red for those afraid of bolder hues.
