Lipstick Jungle

IMG_2509

Hey guys, today I’ve decided to share with you my four favourite lipsticks, all by MAC and all matte. I love MAC lipsticks because they are super affordable and are one of the very few that create lipsticks in the shades and textures that appeal to me. It is very important to know the type(s) of lipstick that suit you as there are many finishes such as cream sheen, matte etc. I am restricted to matte lipsticks due to the shape of my lips(full, scratch that.. Super full! lol), however, I do find glosses that suit me but I personally don’t like anything feeling sticky on my lips(my hair always gets stuck on my lips and when you eat, major ewww!) so the matte lippies work for me!

1. MAC Taupe

This lipstick is my all time fave! It’s not particularly nude but it passes for nude. I love wearing this with a dark purple lipliner which gives it an ombrΓ© effect to die for. Nude lipstick leaves a very clean, subtle and sophisticated finish which I really love and hence is my number one lippie!

2. MAC Ruby Woo

Now this is a lot of people’s favourite lipstick as it gives that old, classic, hollywood vibe which is also why I love it. This was my daily look for quite a while right from my final year at Uni, hence why it is number 2 on my list lol I think I might have overdone it! I like to give it a break and bring it out every 3 weeks or so which makes me appreciate it more. Oh and might I say, when I have my red lipstick on, I feel like I can conquer the world.

3.Β MAC Heroine

Ooh I love this lipstick so much! Its my go-to lipstick when I don’t want to go typical red. It’s very cool and at the same time daring. I think it says a lot about your personality and confidence. I love wearing this with a dark purple lipliner as well which makes it look an even darker purple, Perfect!

4. MAC Flat Out Fabulous

This is a bright pink lipstick which I also love to wear with dark purple lipliner. It is darker than the Candy YumYum by MAC as well and is a good shade for a darker skin tone like mine. I like to wear this lipstick when I’m feeling super feminine(which rarely happens) or with white.

    Yeesssss Flat Out Fabulous! i guess we’re twins in a way. That’s my summer color.
    Did you notice that the Heroin makes your lips look even fuller!? Who knew mere lipstick could do that (without all those excessive lip liner tricks). Oh and I love the Taupe too. I think you’re a bit lighter than I am so my Cherish may not work for you. If you try it, let me know. I use a brown lipliner with it πŸ˜€
    See how excited I am about this post? Wanted to do a similar post once but I thought it was lame/never got to it. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

        & Yes, Cherish is a nude. It’s probably mostly available in stores. I’ll tag you in a picture when I use it.
