My Favourite MAC Lipsticks

L-R: Please Me, Costa Chic, Heartless, Morange, Candy Yum Yum, Viva Glam Nicki

When it comes to lipsticks, I think we all know that MAC rule the roost. With a massive selection of shades, tonnes of different finishes and new limited edition lippies being released all the time, I really don't think you can go wrong with MAC lipsticks. Over the years I've built up quite a collection and I thought it was about time I showed you my favourites! 

Please Me
First up - Please Me. One of the few nude lipsticks I own from MAC, it's the one I've repurchased countless times and absolutely love. The perfect matte nude pink, it's perfect for wearing in the day or at night with a smokey eye. It's a tad on the dry side, but I love the colour so much it doesn't bother me. 

Costa Chic
Another long-time favourite of mine from MAC, Costa Chic is one of the first MAC lipsticks I bought and I've loved it ever since. A beautiful bright, creamy coral, it's a big favourite of mine during the summer months, and I love how it really makes my eyes pop. It's a Frost finish which suits this shade completely and it's definitely a colour I always go back to. 

I didn't really want to include any Limited Edition colours in this post, as obviously you won't be able to get hold of them anymore, however I couldn't resist putting in one from the amazing Venomous Villains collection MAC did with Disney a while ago. This shade is called Heartless and it is a stunning, ruby red that is an Amplified finish, making it pack a serious punch. I adore wearing this shade during the winter at parties as I feel like it's that perfect, Taylor Swift-esque red. 

Another bold shade from MAC, Morange is one of my more recent purchases and it's such an amazing shade I can't believe I didn't invest in it earlier. It's a stunning bright orange, creamy in texture and really moisturising on the lips. I love wearing this shade with a plain black dress to add a bit of oompth. 

Candy Yum Yum
Most definitely one of my all-time favourite lipsticks, Candy Yum Yum was Limited Edition until MAC thought better of it and released it permanently. A beautiful matte, almost fluorescent bright pink shade that definitely isn't for the faint-hearted, Candy Yum Yum is definitely a statement lippy but in all honesty I think it would suit everyone. I love wearing this with a thick slick of liner and falsies for a really glam look. 

Viva Glam Nicki
Another fairly recent(ish) addition to my collection of MAC lippies, Viva Glam Nicki is definitely up there with my favourites. A beautiful bright peachy coral pink, it's another really creamy formula that feels really nourishing on the lips. It's quite similar to Costa Chic, although it's a lot more pink-toned. It also looks incredible with a tan! 

So there you go - all my favourite MAC lipsticks. I thought I'd show them on to give you a better idea of what they look like if you're thinking of investing. Let me know which MAC lipsticks are your favourites - I'm always looking for more to add to my collection!
