Up until last year I’d never tried a MAC lipstick. Shocking for a so-called beauty obsessive, I know. Needless to say since trying them a somewhat obsession has started (that’s totally been enabled by Lauren just so you know) and I’m now the owner of an ever-expanding MAC lipstick collection.  After thinking long and hard I’ve managed to whittle it down to my top 5 excluding Crosswires which is my numero uno – it’s the just so you know and deserves it’s own list!





MAC Fanfare – This was a ‘bought on a whim’ purchase when I was in need of aMAC fix (god I sound like an addict!). It’s a lovely natural pink with a hint of pearlescent shimmer to it. It’s a cremesheen formula so is rich and creamy and looks good even if your lips aren’t in tip top condition.

MAC Rebel – I know what you’re thinking. It’s too dark! But, used as a stain this is the most beautiful deep berry shade. For a full on bold lip use straight from the bullet.

MAC Shy Girl – You know those days where you just want a super casual look? A touch of tinted moisturizer, a sweeping of mascara and a bit of clear brow gel? Shy Girl is your best friend!

MAC Speak Louder – Speak Louder is a gorgeous hot pink shade that I’ve found works really well with a smokey eye in the past. It looks great with simply cat flick make up too for a ‘pretty-but-not-too-overdone’ look.  It’s a cremesheen formula so feels moisturising and creamy.

MAC Plumful – Plumful is my ‘go-to’ shade when I can’t decide which shade to go for – it goes with EVERYTHING. Lauren made me buy this and I’m so glad she did. It comes a close second to Crosswires! It’s a sheer formula but still gives quite a bit of colour pay off.
