My Favorite MAC Lipsticks
I figured that since I was on a "favorites" kick with my eyeshadow palettes and blushes, I'd also post my favorite matte lipsticks too. These are the ones I wear most often and my go-to's as far as bold lips go.
Left to right:
Angel: A soft pink frost, I really didn't think I'd like this color. I tend to stay away from frosty lipsticks. They always make my lips look and feel dry. Angel isn't very frosty at all though which you might be able to tell from the swatch. It's not dry, nor is it a frost in appearance. It does have a very slight shimmer but it's very creamy on application. I love this color with an everyday, neutral look as well as with pink and purple eyes.
Brave: This satin finish pink lipstick is a bump up from my natural lip color. It's on the matte side, but because it's a satin, it's not TOO matte. I love this when I just want a natural color on my lips without going completely bare. It goes with everything too!
Russian Red: This matte red lipstick is my favorite, go-to, must-have red. It's perfect in my opinion and it's the only red I ever wear.
Rebel: This is one of those colors that I think anyone can wear and looks completely different on everyone. On me it's a red wine, not too dark and not too bright. It's a nice alternative to red lips.
Viva Glam Cyndi: Cyndi is a more of a soft red, a reddish pink. When I want to stay soft on my lips but still want more color than Brave or Angel would give me, I reach for this one.
Viva Glam Gaga 2: This is my new favorite nude...or part of my favorite nude lip combo. While it's too brown, yellow, and pale on its own, I do love it over a soft pink lipliner. You can check my review on it, complete with swatches!
