My Top 5 MAC Lipsticks

Monday, 8 June 2015



Hello Beauties! It's been over a year now since I stopped doing 'monthly favourites' posts on here, which means that sometimes my most loved products get shoved into the spotlight once, and then never again - despite me using them on an almost daily basis. I don't really have any plans to re-introduce the 'monthly favourites' posts, as I often found that my favourites were the same pretty much every month, as it takes a lot for me to consider a product a 'favourite' or 'holy grail' item, but instead I want to start showcasing some of my favourite products either by brand, product type, etc. Like most beauty bloggers, a little while ago I went through a phase of buying MAC lipsticks like they were going out of fashion, however there are some definite favourites amongst the lot, so today I thought I would share my most worn shades with you, incase you were looking for any shopping inspiration. There's one or two 'cult classics' in here, but there's also a few shades which I don't think get the attention they deserve in the blogging community, so I've taken it upon myself to show these lipsticks the love they deserve.


(Left to Right: Speed Dial, Girl About Town, Lovelorn, Flamingo and Creme Cup)


1. Lovelorn - Lustre Finish

Lovelorn is probably my most worn lipstick ever. It's the perfect mid pink tone with a slight blue undertone (which helps make your teeth appear whiter!). I love this shade as it's subtle enough to be worn everyday, but also bright enough so you can definitely tell you've taken the time to apply lipstick. It's also a lustre finish, which is one of my favourite finishes. Lustre finishes are slightly sheerer than some of the others and are super moisturising on your lips, however I don't really have a problem with this particular shade being too sheer - I'd say it's about the same pigmentation-wise as the Creamsheen lipsticks.

2. Creme Cup - Creamsheen

Creme Cup was my first every MAC lipstick, so I think it will always have a special place in my heart. I'm sure you've heard about this one before as it's a blogger/YouTube favourite, but I thought I'd add my two cents in just incase you've been living under a rock. Creme Cup is the perfect nude pink in my eyes. It's a gorgeous light pink colour which isn't too 'Barbie' and is just perfect for wearing on an everyday basis. If I'm unsure of what lip colour to go for, 9 times out of 10 I'll go for Creme Cup.

3. Flamingo - Lustre

Flamingo is my most recent MAC lipstick purchase (I say recent, I actually bought this in December), and it's quickly made it into my top 5 most worn lipsticks. This was originally released as part of the 'All About Orange' collection, however all of the lipsticks from that collection have now been released as part of the permanent line - yay. Flamingo is a gorgeous mix of orange and pink, although I don't really want to dub it a 'coral' as I feel that just doesn't do the shade justice, it's much more unique than that. However, if you are a fan of coral lipsticks then I'd definitely recommend this one from MAC.

4. Speed Dial - Cremesheen

Much like Lovelorn, Speed Dial is another blue toned pink. It's slightly darker than Lovelorn but it's definitely still a colour which you could wear on an everyday basis, as its not too bright, in fact, I used to wear this to work all the time. This also differs from Lovelorn as it's a Creamsheen, meaning that it's slightly creamier on your lips, and also slightly more pigmented, so if you prefer a bolder lip then this one may work better for you.

5. Girl About Town - Amplified Creme

Lastly I have Girl About Town. This is the only bright MAC lipstick I own and probably the only bright lipstick I wear regularly, as I'm not usually a fan of statement lips. However, I couldn't not include this as it's just such a pretty shade. Again, this is a blue toned pink so it's sure to make your teeth appear whiter, however Girl About Town is more of a fuchsia pink with hints of purple which I think is just perfect for Summer when you're rocking a tan.

What are your favourite MAC lipsticks?

Lots of Love,

Becky x x

  2. I absolutely love Lovelorn and Cremecup, in fact i wrote about them both in a similar post recently! Never tried Flamingo however it looks like the perfect colour to get me into wearing corals, so i will definitely check it out in store sometime. I love blue toned pinks just like you, so i'd definitely recommend checking out Pink Nouveau if you haven't already :) Great post, and your photos are amazing! xx
