I Dont Even Own That Many MAC Lipsticks...



I've seen so many MAC lipstick collection posts in the past and always thought "I'd love to join in but I don't actually own many MAC lipsticks." I bought a lipstick holder off of Amazon a couple of months ago and it seemed to encourage me to buy more lipsticks. It's already full and about 60% of the products in it are MAC. So, without further adieu, here is my MAC Lipstick Collection!

Top Row: Sweet Experience, Toying Around, Viva Glam IV, Dreaming Dahlia, Maleficent. Bottom Row: New York Apple, Hue, Angel, Lickable


Sweet Experience and Toying Around (Playland Collection)
It had been a while since I'd been excited for a Limited Edition Collection, but this year MAC has been really nailing it, especially with the Simpsons Collection! On the day Playland launched, I sped down to MAC as early as possible so that I wouldn't miss out. Sweet Experience is a light, pigmented pink, which I do like, although it's not a colour I'm used to wearing so I tend to shy away from it. Toying Around however spends most of it's life in my handbag. It's a bright coral pink and I've been all about the coral colours this summer!

Viva Glam IV
Until the Rihanna Viva Glam (which I do own, but left at my boyfriends so haven't photographed) I wasn't actually aware of what Viva Glam was. 100% of the proceeds go to the MAC Aids Fund, helping those living with AIDS and HIV all around the world. So far over $300,000 has been raised, how amazing is that?! Anyway, I was gifted this lipstick for Secret Santa a few years ago and I'm almost at the bottom of the bullet. It's a frosted plum that looks really similar to my natural lip colour.

Dreaming Dahlia (A Fantasy Of Flowers)
I wasn't actually aware that Dreaming Dahlia was a limited edition when I bought it, so I'm a little sad that I won't be able to replace it when it's finished. Although that doesn't stop me wearing it, as it's a soft coral and as I mentioned, I'm all over that!

True Loves Kiss (Maleficent Collection)
As a massive Disney fan- who isn't?! - I had to have at least one item from the Maleficent range. At the time I was going through a phase of not wearing any eyeshadows so I sadly didn't go for the quad as well as the lipstick. As expected it's a deep red, giving the perfect vampy pout. I can't help feeling a little sassy when I wear it!

New York Apple
This is probably the lipstick I wear least out of all of my MAC options. It was my first Back 2 MAC lipstick, but since the colour is quite close to Viva Glam IV it kind of gets forgotten about!

Hue and Angel
I've never really worn nude lipsticks, so when I decided to bite the bullet I couldn't resist picking up two. I chose Hue as it's quite a sheer nude so it doesn't make me feel weird when I look in the mirror and don't see a bright lip colour. Angel has a stronger, pink tone to it which I absolutely love. It's my everyday lipstick and also spends a lot of it's life in my handbag.

Lickable
The last lipstick in my MAC collection is Lickable. I went through a phase of only wearing raspberry pink lipstick so it's been used a good few times at the start of the year. Now that my summer coral addiction is nearing an end, I'm feeling a little bit trendy with a love for plum toned ombre lips. Lickable has been making an appearance again, teamed up with a purple lip liner for a killer pout. I don't think I've ever had as many compliments as I do with an ombre lip!

Top Row: Sweet Experience, Toying Around, Viva Glam IV, Dreaming Dahlia, Maleficent. Bottom Row: New York Apple, Hue, Angel, Lickable
Do you have a particular brand you always end up buying from? Maybe you're a MAC lipstick addict too!
