My top 5 Mac lipsticks! :)

I've been collecting Mac lipsticks for a few years now, and my collection is still relatively small to be honest, but I just love them! I've never really spoken about them before though, so I thought I would compile a blog post of my top 5! I only have a few more than this, but these are my 5 favourite that I wear on a day-to-day basis, although some are obviously more day appropriate than others!

My favourites range from light to dark, and would suit most hair colours and skin tones. I hope you enjoy my collection and it might even inspire you to add some of them to your wishlist! In my opinion, lipsticks are one of the best parts of make up, and can change an outfit or look so dramatically - I literally never leave the house without it!

This was actually the first Mac lipstick I bought, and it's still a favourite. I don't use it as much as I used to, but I'll still use it as a day-to-day lipstick and wear it mixed with other lipsticks too. It's the lightest shade of lipstick that I probably own of all the brands I own, and it's a lovely pale nude.

This is my current favourite Mac lipstick. I've found a lovely lip liner to go with it and have been wearing it on a daily basis! It's a bit darker and browner than the photo shows, more Kylie Jenner-esque! I really wanted to get Velvet Teddy, but with that always being sold out I opted for this, and I'm so glad I did as it suits my skin colour so well!

This is the pinkest lipstick I own. Pink as in bright, barbie pink, as I don't really do bright pink... and it's not even that bright! It's a gorgeous shade though for when you want to feel a bit girlier, or you have a floral dress to wear out! It's not so bright though that you can't wear it to work or somewhere you have to look professional, as you can! :)

I know this lipstick looks super bright in photos, but it also looks this bright in real life too! My best friend bought it for me as a Christmas present one year and I haven't looked back since! As much as I love a cherry red lip, this one looks so perfect with a black eyeliner flick and a leather jacket! It's more of a bright 'pin up' red, with a tinge of orange to it, and I always get compliments on it when I wear it out!

This colour always creeps back into my make-up bag in the Autumn and Winter times. I absolutely love the colour burgundy but I feel it suits my clothes and style more in the colder months. It's a satin finish so doesn't leave your lips dry, and it can be put on really lightly or layered up to create lots of different shades. I personally love a really thick, dark look but some of you may prefer to put only a little bit of this on and blend it out evenly over your lips!

 So that is the end of my top 5 mac lipsticks! :) Three of them are matte, two of them are satin, and all five are just lovely! I'm hoping to expand my Mac lipstick collection some more, so if you can think of any which may suit me then please let me know! I'd like a matte burgundy shade and a darker red in matte also.

Thanks for reading :)
