My MAC Lipstick Collection + Lip Swatches

My MAC Lipstick Collection is one of my most prized possessions and it's taken me a while to collect as many as I have. I worked out that since I have 24, I have spent around £372 on MAC Lipsticks...how tragic is that?!



Amplified finishes are bold in colour, with incredible pigmentation and colour payoff, whilst being creamy on the lips.

Morange - Amplified
A bright orange, one which I don't get much use out of in the UK.

Toying Around - Amplified*
This was a LE lipstick from the Playland collection. It's a coral toned pink.


Frost finishes provide medium yet buildable coverage and colour payoff, with a pearlescent finish.

Odyssey - Frost
A beautiful lipstick for the autumn/winter, a berry colour with a pearly finish.

Barcelona Red - Frost
Definitely not one of my favourites, a frosted intense pinky-red.



Satin finishes are creamy in texture, and provide a fairly good medium colour payoff, which can be built up.

Rebel - Satin
A pink-toned raspberry shade with a gorgeous shine.

Cremesheen's are probably the most well known formula of MAC lipsticks, being balmy and creamy in texture, with a medium buildable colour. They have a slight shine to them.

Speak Louder - Cremesheen 
A girly pink shade, not too suited to my skin tone.

Ravishing - Cremesheen
A peachy coral tone which I think is best suited to light to medium skin tones.

Brave Red - Cremesheen
A classic bold red with a shine.



Lustre finishes are very comfortable on the lips, lightweight with a sheer to medium coverage, which is again buildable.

Patisserie - Lustre
A sheer creamy nude pink with sparkles running throughout.

Plumful - Lustre
A rosey-toned plum colour, perfect to throw on in Autumn.

Retro Matte's are the hardest formula to work with, but they last ages and are extremely matte.

All Fired Up - Retro Matte
Not the most comfortable lipstick, but the brightest blue toned fuchsia pink.

 

MAC's Matte finishes are potentially my favourite out of the lot as they are comfortable yet with a matte finish. They also have a very high colour pay-off. 

Lady Danger -Matte
An intense orange toned red, beautiful on all skin tones.

Diva - Matte
My favourite A/W lipstick! A dark berry shade.

Taupe - Matte
As the name suggests, a muted taupe-brown.

Chili - Matte
A muted red, very wearable.

Heroine - Matte
A bold, bright purple.

Stone - Matte
Not the most wearable colour

Whirl - Matte
A rosey nude, typical Kylie Jenner colour.

Viva Glam Ariana Grande - Matte
Another perfect A/W shade, but does go a bit patchy on the lips.

Sin - Matte
A very dark red with blue undertones.

Evening Rendezvous - Matte*
A bold purple, not for the faint hearted.

Opera - Matte*
A dark pink, nothing too special.

Hearts Aflame - Matte*
A mid to dark toned red.

Lingering Kiss - Matte*
A deep plum red, another A/W fave!

All Limited Edition Lipsticks have an asterix next to them!
What's your favourite MAC lipstick? I'd love to know in the comments so I can add some more to my collection.

  1. I am so jealous of that collection! My favourite products from MAC are the 'Live Long and Prosper' lipstick from the new Star Trek collection and also the lipstick in 'Hopelessly Devoted'!
