I'm back! My darling boyfriend worked hard on getting my computer fixed and he managed. Windows was reinstalled and everything was wiped from it in the process. I have to start over completely and I am installing my video editor while typing this post. While my computer was out I snapped plenty of pictures and shot a couple videos so that I had an abundance of content to flood you with when my computer was back.
I saw Alix from icovetthee doing a video feauturing her mac lipsticks and noticed that her collection was quite similiar to mine. Not too big, a perfect color in each family. A red, a coral, a pink and a nude. What more could a girl want? There aren't any MAC lipsticks I am coveting at the moment, for I am very pleased with the collection I have right now.
First up is this iconic shade. Lady Danger is a gorgeous toned red. It works perfectly with my pale skin and combined with a subtle peachy blush it's the perfect colorful face. I often wear it to parties and dinners because it's a great conversation starter. Whenever I wear it people ask me what is on my lips. The finish is matte, my favorite in MAC lipsticks. It slides onto the lips easily and lasts a really long time. However, moisturizing beforehand is a must.
The Viva Glam Nicki lipstick is my second ever limited edition lipstick from MAC. I bought one in Berlin ages ago but have managed to lose it.. twice! Viva Glam Nicki is an in your face yellow toned pinky coral. It's a tricky color to combine and I have to admit that I haven't worn it that much since I own it. It probably looks a little better on darker skintones, so let's hope I can pull it off this summer.
Pink Nouveau was my first bright pink lipstick. It has a blue undertone and it looks amazing in so many ways. You can even pull this off with a darker eye makeup. It's a satin finish. Almost matte with the tiniest hint of sheen. It glides onto the lips and lasts a good time. This is the only lipstick I wear a lipliner underneath, otherwise it seeps into the lines outside your lips. Also, a moisturizer is needed, like with most lipsticks.
This is my latest and most favorite lipstick that I own from MAC. To me this is the perfect pinkyL nude. And it's matte too! Like I have mentioned on here numerous times. Glossy lips aren't exactly my favorite. I wear this color so often. Either with my very simple daily face, or with an elaborate smokey eye for a night out with the girls.
My MAC lipstick collection is small and edited. But it has everything that I need. This brand's lipsticks are amazing quality, but they're expensive. I see them as an investment, I don't purchase them on a whim. They are carefully debated choices and they really need to enrich my collection.
Do you own any MAC lipsticks? If so, which do you love most?
