Hey everyone! I saw this tag seven months ago on Molly’s blog and I finally got around to doing it! Like most beauty bloggers, I adore MAC lipsticks. The range of formulas and selection of shades combined with outstanding quality is a winning combination! MAC lipsticks are worth every cent and the hype surrounding them is definitely real. Let’s jump straight in to the tag!
1. What was your first MAC lipstick?
My first MAC lipstick was Syrup. I chose this colour after hearing Lily Pebbles mention it in a number of her videos and I couldn’t have been more happy with my choice.
2. What was your most recent MAC lipstick addition?
I haven’t received it yet, but my brother is buying Matte Royal for me for my birthday this month.
3. What is your most used MAC Lipstick?
It’s a tie between Syrup and Patisserie (another Lily Pebbles inspired choice). Both of these shades are lovely as everyday colours as they’re relatively neutral and they go with absolutely everything!
4. What is your favourite nude/pink/red MAC lipstick?
Nude: Blankety – The perfect nude.
Pink: Without Your Love – From Ellie Goulding’s MAC collection.
Red: Ruby Woo – It’s the only red lipstick from MAC I own.
5. Have you ever repurchased a MAC lipstick?
Not yet. I definitely see myself repurchasing Syrup once I’ve used it up and possibly Patisserie as well.
6. Which of the different MAC finishes do you own?
2 x Lustre, 2 x Retro Matte, 2 x Cremesheen and 1 x Amplified making for a total of seven lipsticks. Not a lot, but still a nice little collection.
7. Which shade do you want to wear more?
Blankety. It is such a beautiful nude with an incredible formula and I don’t show it enough love.
8. Which shade doesn’t get enough hype?
All Fired Up. This is the most gorgeous fuschia-red colour which are my favourite shades to wear. Despite being retro matte, this lipstick isn’t drying.
9. Do you regret buying any shades?
Sunny Seoul – kind of. It’s a cremesheen which isn’t my favourite finish and sometimes this shade can take a few layers to build up nicely and provide even coverage. It’s my least worn MAC lipstick but I don’t want to get rid of it because it’s still stunning. Maybe I’ll pass it on to my mum.

10. What next?
I want to do a thorough swatch test. I especially want to swatch Brave as it is talked about so often and seems like another perfect neutral everyday colour. I’m eyeing up Show Orchid as well for when my current fuchsia shade runs out. I don’t need any lipsticks right now but I can always look for the future, right?!
I hope you enjoyed reading this tag and definitely give it a go if you’re a MAC lipstick fan!
