Top 5 MAC Lipsticks

Top 5 MAC Lipsticks including Shy Girl, Angel, Please Me, Russian Red and Vegas Volt

Hi everyone, I thought I’d share my top 5 favourite MAC lipsticks with you all! I’ve recently loved trying out new lipsticks and it always brightens up my day if i’m wearing a lovely shade.  I tend not to wear eyeshadow on an everyday basis so I think wearing a bright lipstick makes such a difference.  Here are my Top 5!

1. Shy Girl - Cremesheen

MAC Shy Girl Lipstick

This was the first MAC lipstick I ever bought, I was so excited to try it out! Shy Girl is a lovely natural nude shade with a hint of coral.  I was always wary about nude lipsticks as most would make me look washed out or give me that “foundation on the lips” look, not good! If you’re looking for a natural everyday lipstick I’d really recommend this.  The Cremesheen formula is very moisturising and easy to apply.

2. Angel - Frost

MAC Angel Lipstick

Frost finishes always kind of scare me, they’re usually very hard to pull off but Angel is an exception!  I’d say the shade is sort of a “your lips but better” sort of shade which I love.  If you want a step up from a nude lipstick like Shy Girl then you’ll love this.

3. Russian Red - Matte

MAC Russian Red Lipstick

Every girl needs a red lipstick, I only wish I had more opportunities to use it! Russian Red is the perfect matte red lipstick. With blue undertones, it makes your teeth appear whiter too which is always a bonus! The colour is quite intense but looks great on everyone.  It also looks great if you apply a tiny bit on your lips and dab it on for a less intense look.  I find the matte finish makes the lipstick last all night so you won’t have to touch up your lipstick every 10 minutes!

4. Please Me - Matte

MAC Please Me Lipstick

You can probably tell from the picture that this is my favourite MAC lipstick, I LOVE it!  Please Me is a rosy pink shade with a matte finish which looks amazing on everyone.  I recently used this lipstick on my friend during my fashion presentation and it works really well with both pale and darker skin tones.  I find that when applying this it is really important to apply lip balm before otherwise matte lipsticks will highlight dry lips even more.  I’m not surprised it’s one of MAC’s best sellers.  If you'd like to try MAC lipsticks but don’t know where to begin I’d really recommend this as your first one!

5. Vegas Volt - Amplified

MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick

I've been wanting to get my hands on this lipstick for ages and I finally got it for my birthday woo! Vegas Volt is the perfect coral lipstick which is the ultimate shade for summer.  Amplified finish lipsticks are generally more intensified colours with the same sort of application as cremesheen so they're perfect for making a statement.  I recently wore it in my birthday makeup post if you'd like to see how it looks on.  It’s also one of Lisa’s favourite MAC lipsticks too if that highlights how great it is!

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Let me know what MAC lipsticks are your favourites, we'd love to know! This past week we've both been extremely busy with uni work making clothes for our design project so please bare with us with regular posting until next week!  If you'd like to see what we're making I've been posting a few pictures of the progress of my jacket on Instagram @samijaynelee if you're interested.
