I’m a big lipstick girl. When it comes to my wardrobe, I like to keep it pretty simple and stick to the basics, so a lip color really goes a long way. My number 1 asked question on social media is always “what lip color is that?”, so I figured I would do a blog post on all of my favorite lip colors! A lot of you may ask why do I stick just to MAC products, well that’s just because I love their product, but also because of their recycling program- it keeps me coming back! If you don’t know about their recycling program, they give you a free MAC lipstick of your choice for every (and any) 6 MAC containers you bring in. Becuase of this program, I end up trying out new lip colors that I wouldn’t have necessarily bought on my own.
The list below lists out all the lip colors that I can’t live without. I listed it in order of importance, so you know exactly which ones are my top fave!
PS- if you haven’t tried MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours, you definitely should! I’ve never tried a lip product that looks good and stays on all day long! I literally don’t ever have to reapply and they dry matte so they never get on my teeth or smudge- it’s amazing!
Blankety is my #1 every day go-to lipstick. Blankety is the perfect natural nude pink that I swear looks good on everyone! I have naturally pretty red lips, so when it comes to finding the perfect nude, it’s a little difficult because sometimes nude colors are too light for me and can look chalky. This lipstick also goes on very, very smooth. It’s seriously my favorite lipstick that I CANNOT live without!
I’ve always been obsessed with red lips, but I always hated wearing red because I was scared that it was on my teeth or it would smear all over. That is until I stumbled upon this lip product. As I mentioned above, MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is an amazing product and it lasts all day long without smudging at all. I also like it because it doesn’t dry out my lips! I like this red color, because it’s the perfect red- not too dark, not too orangey. This will always be my go-to red!
No. 3 – “Diva” // MAC Lipstick Matte
This color is the perfect wine red! My best friend/prof make up artist, Patrick Ta, recommended this color to me a long time ago and I’ve loved it ever since. It’s perfect for the fall season or date night! I will have to warn you because it’s a matte lipstick, it can go on chalky, so make sure your lips are super moisturized before putting it on.
This is my newest lipstick that I love. It’s a great deep pink/brown color and I find myself wearing this on a regular basis next to Blankety! It’s an elegant + rich dark pink color. I’ve received a lot of compliments on it lately.
Burnt Spice is a great deep pinkish brown color, so like Velvet Teddy, but in the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour version. I like to wear this lip color when I want to make that subtle, yet bold lip move. I typically like to wear this with a super basic casual outfit like jeans + white tee with a somewhat bold lip!
Whirl was one of the first lipstick I ever bought. This lip color has always reminded me of Kylie Jenner for some reason. It’s a light pinkish/red color that can look kinda brown. I really, really love this color!
No. 7 – “Pure Zen” // MAC Cremesheer Lipstick
So, this is probably the lightest lip color I own. It’s kind of a nude color but has more pinkish tones, so it looks kinda like barbie pink! I like to wear this lip color in the spring or with brighter outfits. I coudln’t find the link to this anywhere, so I really hope it isn’t discontinued!
No. 8 – “Twig” // MAC Lipstick Satin
Twig is similar to Whirl, but it has more of a red tone to it. I loooove to wear this color in the fall with darker colors, but also a very good every day lip color with a basic outfit!
I gotta say, this lip color isn’t quite for everyone. It is a very, very deep red that can almost look bloody red. It’s definitely a very bold statement lip color, but sometimes you just need that, you know? Again, it’s a Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor, so it lasts all day long!
If you’re looking for that fun bright fushia pink, this is your lipstick. It’s definitely a bold lip color, but because of the fun pink, it helps soften it up. This is definitely a great lip color to wear in the spring or summer!
The perfect light nudish, brown, pink color I own. This color definitely can look brown, so I typically like to wear it in the fall/winter when I’m not as tan, so it doesn’t wash me out!
