My Mac Lipsticks...

[L-R: Vegas Volt, Jubilee, Speed Dial, Creme D'Nude]

When I first started blogging I noticed there was shed loads of MAC posts around. How can you not notice? My first opinions were that this was a "status" brand, that you had to buy MAC makeup if you were blogging so I stayed away from it. But my friend who has no blog but is a makeup artist started to talk me around. After seeing this post by Hayley I decided to post up my very modest collection of MAC lipsticks. 

The first lipstick I bought was actaully from Yu's  Charity Blog Sale and this was Jubliee. This is a great everyday colour and can be easily worn with anything so I get a lot of use out of it. It is a lustre finish and to be honest I am not sure what that means, but its nice and glossy on the lips.

The second MAC lipstick I bought was Creme D'nude and this really doesn't suit me at all. Makes me look like I have concealer lips so I probably will be selling this.

The third one that I bought was Vegas Volt. I bought this on a whim when going in to ask for a foundation sample. The assistants were busy and after seeing it on loads of blogs I bought it without hesitation. I love this colour, lasts well too. The only thing is as this wears off it stains any dry skin you have on your lips so you need to make sure you are well moisturised.

I bought Speed Dial whilst out with said friend who has a pro card meaning 35% off MAC. I love this and it is a really wearable pink, a dupe for AVON Pink Quarts which has discontinued :(. I wear this most days and although the colour doesn't last as long as Vegas Volt it doesn't stain the dry skin on my lips.
