My MAC Lipstick Collection


I am a MAC lipstick addict. I just can never have enough! They are amazing quality and come in many different colors and finishes. They apply smoothly on the lips with fabulous staying power and pigmentation. My personal favorites are the satins, lustres, and cremesheens. If you haven't tried MAC lipsticks, I highly suggest you do. 

My collection:
Sweetie (lustre)
Snob (satin)
Up The Amp (amplified)
Hot Gossip (cremesheen)
Lovelorn (lustre)
Pink Pearl Pop (cremesheen)
Viva Glam V (lustre)
Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (amplified) *Limited Edition
Candy Yum-Yum (matte)
Creme Cup (cremesheen)
Angel (frost)
Bombshell (frost)
Media (satin)
Rebel (satin)
Russian Red (matte)
MAC Red (satin)
Real Doll (lustre) *Limited Edition
Lustering (lustre)
Milan Mode (lustre)
Creme De La Femme (frost)
Plumful (lustre)

I have been growing this collection for about four years. MAC lipsticks are something I truly love collecting and I want to purchase more and more. I don't see this obsession stopping any time soon! I've swatched all my lipsticks on my arm below, so you can get an idea as to what they look like. Keep in mind, they do look a bit different on the lips and will not appear the same on any one skin tone. Definitely stop by a MAC store or counter to see these beauties for yourself. 

Top from left to right: Sweetie, Snob, Up The Amp, Hot Gossip, Lovelorn, Pink Pearl Pop, Viva Glam V, Viva Glam Miley Cyrus, Candy Yum-Yum, Creme Cup, Angel, Bombshell
Bottom from left to right: Media, Rebel, Russian Red, MAC Red, Real Doll, Lustering, Milan Mode, Creme De La Femme, Plumful

It's hard for me to pick a favorite, because I love them all, but if I had to choose I would say Milan Mode at the moment. It has just the right amount of shimmer and is a gorgeous plumy fuchsia. The color I think suits everyone is Viva Glam V. It's a rosy pink color with flecks of gold shimmer that is perfect for day or night. A must-have, in my opinion. 

Are you a MAC addict like myself? What is your favorite shade? Let me know in the comments below.

  2. This is a great post. It gives me a little view into the MAC lipstick brand. I have been hesitant on adding it to my beauty collection because I am so connected to my own brands. I may have to try some of the ones you have listed!

    1. Up The Amp is a great color for the summer. Repurchase it for sure if you want to! :) I also recommend Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (the perfect hot pink that's a very flattering shade), Bombshell (shimmery bright-ish pink with a hint of coral), Snob (a lilac-y pink), and Sweetie (the perfect all-year-round pinky plum.)

  4. I've never tried any MAC lipsticks, but I heard that MAC Red is the perfect shade of red! Next time I go lipstick shopping, I'll have to pick it up! Thanks so much for the honest review!

    1. Definitely check it out! MAC Red looks a bit more pink on me, but I still love it! If you're looking for a true red, check out Russian Red. I've also heard great things about Ruby Woo :)

  5. WOW! This collection is amazing. Mine is nothing compared to your's, haha! Loving the various shades of color. I have the heroin mac lipstick and that's all I have from MAC. :) I'll add more to my collection later on.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oh wow you've got yourself quite the collection! Harper&Harley has been taking part in the Kiss Goodbye to MS project this past month, in which every day she uploads a new post showcasing a new lip color (like this). Even though May is almost over, maybe it'd be fun to do something like that :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
