New MAC Lipsticks

Everyone’s a sucker for a MAC lipstick, right? When we went to Paris back in March, I couldn’t help but treat myself to a few from Duty Free, discounted prices and all that, just makes it pretty much impossible to refuse. I headed over not knowing what I wanted which is always a bad move... 

About 15 minutes later and a hand full of swatches, I’d narrowed down a selection but was pretty torn between the few colours I had chosen and decided to go with 2 of them. I picked Taupe up on the Debenhams website a few weeks back and used my Beauty Card points to buy it (total bonus!) but Sin and Victorianna, from the Toledo collection at the airport.

MAC Lipstick Swatches
Top - Victorianna, Middle - Sin, Bottom - Taupe 

Each of these lipsticks are a Matte Finish, all very long lasting. I do find Sin very dry though and if I haven’t moisturised my lips well enough before application, it pulls my lips and they look very dry. Victorianna applies very easily though, a silky finish and it doesn’t budge at all! A perfect addition to your brights collection, although they no longer sell this shade online, so check your nearest counter or Debenhams store! Lastly, a nude that I love and isn’t constantly sold out - Taupe. Its the perfect ‘Naked lip’ colour but enough to show that you’re wearing lipstick. I love wearing this with a simple brown eye, and bronzer! 

I’m still looking to add to my collection though so send me your favourite MAC lipstick colours so that the next time I feel a splurge coming on, I know what to look out for!
