MY TOP FIVE MAC LIPSTICKS


I think that this is pretty much a standard for any beauty lover; tackling the MAC lipstick collection. With so many shades available, and new ones popping up what seems like multiple times a month, it can be a daunting task to weed through and pick your favorites. Certain shades are loved by all, others are more taste-specific, and this roundup of my top five includes a few from each aforementioned category. Lets get this MAC party started, shall we

My affair with these lipsticks began when I was in high school; I would venture around 45 minutes from home to get myself to a mall that had a MAC counter. Luckily for me, not so much for my wallet (tear, tear) my local mall has upgraded a wee bit, gifting us a MAC counter with music bumping and all. Back then I had to have the shade Snob after seeing it crop up in just about every celebrity makeup look in my good old teen magazines. Lets just say that wasn't my best shade choice, a bit too white based and chalky for my tastes, but nowadays, I look to the brand for peachy pinks and creamy neutrals whenever I am sick and tired of what's already in my stocks. Oh, and of course - for some of the best reds and brights possibly, ever. 

From Left // Creme In Your Coffee is the perfect browny pink that is currently my go-to fall shade. Shy Girl is a classic nudey pink that is the "my lips but better shade" on every it girl's lips. Ruby Woo is the perfect little black dress of red lipsticks - it will never go out of style - or budge from your mouth once applied. Fresh Brew is an androgynous taupey brown shade that's ah-mazing for a bit of a 90's lip. Peach Blossom is my spring pout bottled up, although it's great year-round peach that brightens the complexion and just makes me...happy

So now that I shared my favorites, I want to know yours. It's only fair. Am I missing anything amazing that should've made it in my top five but didn't?

  2. GREAT picks! I need Fresh Brew now! Creme in Your Coffee is such a classic, too! It's like we have ESP or something because I've been working on a draft of my five favorite MAC lipsticks! I had 3 down in seconds, but selecting the final two from my stash of loves is harder than I thought! Oh and props to you for even attempting to rock Snob!
