New MAC Lipsticks To The Collection
MAC Lipsticks have become the obbsession as of late and I have definitely jumped on the band wagon of the brown or nude tone matte lipsticks. I'm a little late on the trend but I had trouble being confident enough to wear different colour lipsticks other than my lip colour but I have turned over a leaf and although it doesn't look like much to some, its an improvement for me.
I can officially say that I am obsessed with MAC Matte/Satin finishes, they are so creamy and pigmented that I really do want them all! These are three new lipsticks I bought about a week ago, the Velvet Teddy was from the Debenhams website and the other two were from in store. Just a tip, Debenhams regularly has a discount on beauty so keep a look out for that on their website! I used to love looking at lipsticks in store but now I love researching the shades I want online first now as even as a makeup lover, I get a little overwhelmed by all the colours and some people offer great swatches! The shades I bought was -
Velvet Teddy, a deep toned Brown with what I can see, a slight Rose shade undertone and creamy Matte finish. Next, Viva Glam II is a muted pink-beige with a shimmer according to the internet which I would agree with but when it says a shimmer, I would say its very light as you barely see it when wearing the lipstick. A Satin and a Matte finishes are similar but Matte finishes are a flat opaque colour where as the Satin finishes have a tiny amount of shimmer in them to give them more of a sheen finish although being opaque and still very pigmented. Lastly, Honey-Love is a light toned beige with Rose which a Matte finish. I love all three shades, Velvet Teddy is a darker and deeper version of Honey-Love and Viva Glam is a less rose toned version with more beige so it depends on what look you're wearing. I like to have a range of shades as it really can make a difference.
I'm so excited that my collection is growing! Next stop is a bolder colour.. which one do you think?!
What are your favourite MAC shades and finishes?
