My MAC Lipstick Collection

Saturday, September 14, 2013



You can always rely on a MAC lipstick to stir some excitement among beauty junkies like us, and I have to say that filming this video was pretty darn exciting.  I used to watch videos like this and dream about the day that I'd have my own extensive collection, and whaddya know, that day is here!  Whilst I may have jumped the gun on a few purchases I probably should have re-thought, on the whole I love my little stash.

Now before we jump into the video, I just wanted to mention something here that I wish someone had told me before I got into makeup, and that is to go slow.  MAC lipsticks aren't cheap, and in order to curate a cohesive collection that you're ultimately very happy with, it's important to physically test the shades and textures on your lips.  You'll get a perfect feel for the lipstick, and you'll also learn which finishes suit you best.   I know this is easier said than done, because it's just so tempting to buy one right then and there, but you'll come away more satisfied when you purchase a lipstick you know you'll love versus one you think you like.  I believe that MAC lipsticks as a whole are definitely worth the investment as the longevity, texture, and color payoff tends to be pretty excellent.

OK, serious business aside, I hope you enjoy seeing the lipsticks I chose for myself, and that you maybe get a better idea of how certain colors actually look on the lips.  MAC lipsticks are pricey, but they make me happy, so I save up for one or two every now and again.  I can't see myself adding too many more to my collection, but I mean they just released like 10 new mattes for Fall, so...my current MAC lipsticks might have a few new friends to talk to in the near future...
