With it being National Lipstick Day on Saturday it inspired me to pick out my favourite shades of my favourite lipstick brand - MAC. For me MAC are one of the back as they have hundreds of shades and a number of finishes and if you can't find one to be suited I will be shocked. My collection of these is pretty expansive and there are lots more shades I want to try but here are my top 5.

This is in a satin finish so has a slight sheen to it and a moisturising formula. I find that this is one of those your lips but better shades and really compliments the pinkness in my lips. This is described as muted mauve pink on the website and I would say that is pretty perfect but there is definitely a blue undertone to it. 


As you can see this is a favourite of mine as its almost finished and I will definitely buy again we I can't use any more. This is in a lustre finish so more sheer than satin but still has a slight sheen to it and again very moisturising. This is one of my favourite shades for summer   and is a pretty neon milky coral shade that really compliments tanned skin.


Obviously this is very similar looking Faux and it is also in a satin finish but I do find they look different when on. Brave has much more of a pinky beige tone to it with a pearlescent sheen to it, compared to Faux which has much more of a purple tone to it. 


This is probably my favourite shade I own from MAC and I can't believe I didn't discover it until late last year. This is a light beige nude with a hint of rose to it, but I find its one of those true nude shades that works well with most makeup looks. This is in a matte finish but I don't find it drying like I have with other matte MAC shades.


If I'm honest most of my favourite MAC shades are neutrals but I thought I needed to include a brighter shade in this post. Rebel is one of those autumnal shades that I love to wear, its a mid tone plum shade, but it definitely has reddish pink tones when I wear it. It's another satin finish so super moisturising and comfortable to wear.

  3. I have Honeylove, it doesn't work well with my skintone, but I want to try Faux, Brave and Velvet Teddy!

  4. I can't believe I don't own a single shade out of these! I wish honeylove looked nice on me, I was so gutted because everyone seems to love it! Brave is a shade I've had on my wishlist for ages as well xx

  5. Honeylove is my favorite shade ever, it's the perfect nude for fair skin! x

  6. Velvet Teddy is my current favourite but I was a big fan of Faux for a good few months too, I'd like to try Brave but don't want them to be too similar!
