Top 3 Mac Lipsticks

Mac are famous for their famous lipsticks which any makeup lover will most likely own. I would class these as high end lipsticks but at only £15.50, they are definitely in reach for most people. I love the packaging of these lipsticks! I think they look so sleek and professional and most importantly, I love their formulas. 

2 out of my 3 favourite lipsticks are matte ones and the other one is a creamsheen. The first favourite is a creamsheen in the shade 'Creme Cup'. I have owned this for years and have repurchased it. This was actually the first Mac product I owned and the first product to get me into this brand. This shade is a nudey pink and looks so lovely on my pale skin tone. I feel like if you had dark skin then this might be to pale but for medium to light tones, I would definitely recommend it. The formula of this lipstick makes it feel nice and creamy without being sticky and moving around the lips. I find that this particular one lasts a while but I will always have to re-apply after drinking or eating.

My next favourite one is the famous 'Velvet Teddy' which is a matte finish. This lipstick is so stunning and I think it suits most skin tones lovely. It is a browny colour but not too dark. This shade is so pigmented and is lovely with both natural or full on glam makeup looks. This lipstick is so popular and I can definitely see why. This also lasts for such a long time as it is a matte formula.

The final lipstick which I love is yet again a matte finish and is in the shade 'Men love Mystery'. This colour is a lovely purple shade. On my light skin tone, it comes up quite bright and is definitely not an everyday shade. I tend to wear this on rare occasions where I will be going out. When going for a meal, I can wear this and not have to re-apply all night which is amazing. On darker skin tones, this shade would probably be more wearable as it isn't as much of a contrast.
