Mac Lipstick Review

L1010689

I thought I would write a little review on my Mac lipsticks, to help any one who was looking to try out some of these lipsticks, or was wondering what a certain shade looks like or is just a Mac addict and can’t get enough of them (I know I am!). Chances are, if you are reading this, then you are interested in either Mac, or lipsticks. Usually when I buy Mac lipsticks, I tend to reach for the Cremesheens, however I do like some other finishes, I don’t buy them because of the finish, I buy them because of the shade, I am obsessed with Mac, to say the least, I feel like the products are such great quality and although some products are expensive, they aren’t as much as some high end brands, such as Benefit. I personally think that benefit is overpriced and the products themselves are very minimal, but some products are absolutely amazing and I swear by them.

(In order from left to right)
Fanfare:
This lipstick is a Cremesheen finish, this makes it such a creamy texture and leaves a lovely silky shine on the lips. It is a rose pink, so quite dark, but a great colour to wear in the evenings, because of how dark it is. This is obviously a personal preference, because I tend to go for a more subtle lip during the day and a darker one in the evening. It is also goes on very smoothly, which is always a bonus.
Velvet Teddy:
This lipstick is a Matte finish, and if you weren’t aware of the Velvet Teddy hype a few months back, then you probably won’t comprehend just how wonderful it is! Out of the 5 shades, this has to be the most autumnal colour. It is a dark beige, that’s probably the best way to describe it. Because it is a Matte, it dries the lips out quite a lot, but if you apply an average lip balm beforehand, it doesn’t show all of the dryness on your lips and it also tones down the harshness of the colour.
Bombshell:
This lipstick is a Frost finish, and is definitely my all time favourite Mac lipstick. It is like Fanfare but more rose pink with gold undertones which leaves a lovely shimmer. This is such a great evening colour and goes with every makeup look/outfit that I’ve paired it with. I would highly recommend this lipstick and I feel like it doesn’t get the recognition that it deserves. I haven’t yet found a lipstick from any brand that comes close to this wonderful lipstick, which says a lot about the originality of Mac.
Ravishing:
This lipstick is a Cremesheen finish, and is a peachy coral colour. When I bought this lipstick it was summer, and I was looking for a coral lipstick, I went in with the intention of buying Vegas Volt, but found it far to harsh and bright, as I continued searching I found this colour and fell in love. I wouldn’t wear it in the winter, I feel like it’s explicitly a spring/summer colour because of how bright it is. So, if you are looking for a creamy finish but a coral shade that isn’t too harsh, give this a whirl, and you probably won’t ever need to buy another coral lipstick again, because of how buildable it is.
Cremecup:
This lipstick is a Cremesheen finish, and as the Mac website says, it is a ‘light blue pink’, I couldn’t put it better myself. On my lips it leaves a barbie pink look, so I find it very difficult to match with my clothes, but if you wear anything of a barbie pink colour, then this looks perfect with it. In the photos, it looks a lot lighter than it actually is, so don’t be put off by this. As all cremations, this leaves a silky smooth finish and can be as sheer or as dark as you wish.
