Limited edition Mac lipsticks

I am a sucker for anything Mac, and even more so when they bring out limited edition shades! I really love red lipsticks which you can probably tell from above, so they're usually my go to shade if there's a new range out (that or purple). I do have many other Mac lipsticks but they're just not as fun as some pretty packaging.

The majority of these are mattes too, just as I think mattes last a lot longer than other finishes. But hey I do own a load that aren't matte either!

Swatches:
Mac Limited Edition Lipsticks Swatches - RiRi Mac, Mac Osbournes

Each one of the lipsticks is so pigmented, you don't have to swatch them heavy to get an even colour. I always find Mac lipsticks last better with a liner, and it also stops them bleeding. So if you are going to grab one, grab a matching liner or even a Rimmel liner as they're just as good! I know Summer means you're meant to wear the soft neautral blah blah, but I'm literally a red/purple lip all year round person so they're always going to be my first purchase. Which also means I am soo happy it's Autumn, my lipstick will actually be in fashion for the rest of the year (maybe). Strip Poker was a buy a bit on a whim, I really wanted the lilac shade but it was sold out so I literally bought it for the packaging. I mean don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful shade.. but I'm sooo pale it just does nothing for me :(.

My all time favourite shade out of my limited editions is my Mac Barbecue, it's so wearable through the day and even on a night out. It's a super bright orange-red tone and it gives your skin that lovely bronzed glow look. Another favourite is Pleasure Bomb, but I tend to not use it AS much as the others cause it was soooo hard to get a hold of. It's a beautiful colour! I need Mac to bring out some new collection in some nice packaging as it's been a while!

What is your favourite shade? Do you have a favourite limited edition?

  6. I’m exactly the sae as you anything MAC and I’m sold especially when it comes to LE haha. I really wish I had got True Loves Kiss from the Maleficent collection. One of my favourite LE collections had to be the Archie’s Girls range :)

  10. Love the packaging of the Rihanna shade and probably would've bought it for that even though the original Ruby Woo didn't suit me haha. Mystical looks really up my street. I tend to think too much about buying their LE collections and end up missing them! xx
