MAC Lipstick Collection

My MAC lipstick obsession only began around two years ago and has since swelled to an impressive, or embarrassing 25 tubes!

Well I say my MAC lipsticks I really mean lipstick in general! I was never a massive fan, I had always been a gloss girl in fact I'm certain I only owned one or two lipsticks a couple of years ago. Now however I am fully enamoured with these coloured sticks of joy! I barely feel dressed without a swipe of colour on my lips.

MAC lipsticks for me are a bit like how I feel about nail varnish, I love to have all the different colours and something from the new collection. Making the special journey to the MAC counter to buy one is an exciting treat and an experience I thoroughly enjoy! Of course there's the excitement of Back 2 MAC-ing used up bottles and tubes in exchange for a lovely lipstick.

Anyway on to the good stuff....

Marquise D'- From the Wonder Woman collection last year this is a golden sheer nude, one I don't reach for often but enjoy when I do.
Hue - A MAC classic but unfortunately one I cannot pull off. I can't put my finger on why, maybe its not peachy for me.
Peachstock - A recent addition at the end of last summer and again one that I find difficult to wear alone however it's perfect with a slick of clear gloss.
Dressmaker, Dressmaker - My perfect peach nude and one of my top 5! I'll be all over this if it's ever re-released. I'm saving the rest for the summer.

Costa Chic - A frost and one of my first purchases. Not sure why I originally bought this and I dismissed it, it was left unloved in my stash for a long time. Until this summer when I absolutely fell in love with it! I love it! Such a gorgeous coral perfect for the summer months.
Ravishing - Could this be my favourite lipstick ever? Probably! The most perfect peachy coral. Amazing!
Ever Hip - Shown here twice, the one on the left is the second release of this gorgeous lipstick and the first release in the stunning Liberty packaging. The first lipstick I completely fell in love with! 

Neon Orange - A vibrant bright orange shade it's glossy and creamy and again a top 5 for me!
Full Speed Ahead - My first and only Sheen Supreme but it won't be my last. This one is a pink toned coral, a very saturated colour and very glossy. Great lipsticks and I'm looking forward to trying some more.
Hibiscus - Similar to Neon Orange but it's toned down more chilled out sister. Housed in the limited edition Surf Baby collection from last summer.

Ruby Woo - A matte classic red, best applied with a liner and a lip brush. I purchased it for the Christmas party season and it fit the bill perfectly.
Cockney - My first foray with a red lippie. A nice one to start with, a gentle shimmery glossy red.
Mehr - From the Mickey Contractor collection this is a brown toned pink that I find very flattering. I ignored it when I first received it however I have recently enjoyed wearing this grown up shade!

Viva Glam Gaga - A stunning cool toned pink, stunning with a tan. Very glad I own this one!
Viva Glam Cyndi - A raspberry red, an easy to wear colour only worn it a few times.
Viva Glam V - From a Christmas collection this is a warm gold toned nude. Again only worn a few times.

Snob - A light pink, I have good days and bad days with this one. At the moment it looks horrible on me, with a tan maybe better.
Lovelorn - A gorgeous easy to wear everyday pink, one I will always repurchase.
Speed Dial - Brighter than Lovelorn my most worn lipstick. Gorgeous!
Made With Love - A frost, pink with coral tones. Very pretty but not one I choose often.

Candy Yum Yum - An almost neon matte pink. Quite difficult to wear I prefer to wear a gloss with it and save it for sunny days or nights out! I do love it though!
Pink Nouveau - My favourite bright pink, still cool toned but so pretty. A staple in my collection.
Gulabi - A warm toned bright raspberry pink. Totally stunning, This is my evening lipstick, I think it's similar to Girl About Town although I don't own it. I always get compliments when I wear it.
Impassioned - My most recent addition and its a gorgeous bright bold pink. I enjoy wearing this on confident days!!

Phew! That was a lot! 

I love my whole collection, I can't find a dud one in there! I'm not stopping there however! There are some amazing collections coming this year, I want four from the new MAC Shop, MAC Cook collection! Argh!

On my wish list are Lady Danger, Girl About Town, Morange and Viva Glam Nicki.

I think my next purchase will be Shy Girl as loved by Laura, Lollipop26, who as a lipstick connoisseur suggests it should be in everyone's collection!

Do you have any faves I should swatch next time I'm in MAC?
