Favourite Mac Lipsticks

 My Top MAC Lipsticks (with a bobbi brown thrown in)

I always find lipstick the most exciting thing to buy over any other makeup item, but if like me, there are just too many to choose from, here are my top +MAC picks:

1. MAC, Syrup

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I LOVE this lipstick. It has a lustre finish which means it creates a gorgeous sheen on the lips. I'd describe this colour as having a slight violet hue which makes it super stunning ...and perfect for pale skin!

2. MAC, See Sheer

Again, a lustre finish (which I forgot to mention, is perfect for people are aren't confident with bright, bold colour on their lips). Now surprisingly I wouldn't normally go for this colour as it is slightly 'orangey', however, it seems to work?! Love! 

3. MAC, Peach Blossom

This is my classic, go to, soft pink ....and the one I throw on quickly when in a rush. It's a cremesheen, which as you guessed it, has a creamy texture with a glossy finish. If you're looking for your own lip colour but better, buy this!

4. MAC, Creme Cup

Favourite MAC lipsticks pale skin

This is my most recent purchase. I bought it after having my make-up done professionally for a wedding. I asked for a nude lip to go with my smokey eyes, and instantly loved this shade when she applied it. I'd describe it as the true nude version of the Peach Blossom; they come from the same family but aren't twins ....maybe sisters lol.

5. Bobbi Brown, Razzberry

Favourite Best lipsticks pale skin

Haha ok, so this isn't MAC, but I had to mention it, as it's my new favourite lipstick right now and perfect for Autumn / Winter. It actually has a matte finish but the flash on my camera has made it look more shiny than it really is. 
Perfect for someone who is new to bolder colours, or just wants something a little different from the usual pinks and nudes. +Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

To Conclude

As with any lipstick, it's always a good idea to try before you buy. If you aren't able to get to a store selling these products then I hope I've helped in some way. I'm sure I'll continue to buy many more lipsticks to come, and will probably be raving about my NEW 5 favourites in the near future!
