Mac lipstick collection

So today I thought I would show you my Mac lipstick collection, I love a good Mac lipstick post so I hope you enjoy reading this one.
Crème cup - Cremesheen finish
Out of my 9 shades this is the only one that I don't like, it's a blue toned pink shade and I just find it washes me out completely. With this being a Cremesheen finish it doesn't last as long as I would like it to and I only get a 2-3 hour wear time out of it. That being said it is very comfortable and feels hydrating on the lips.
Brick'o'la - Amplified finish
This one is the perfect autumn everyday shade for me. It is a light brick terracotta shade. With it being an amplified it has a really good pigment and sits comfortably on the lips without drying them out. I get around 5-6 hours wear out of this one as it does fade really nicely and doesn't make lips go flaky.
Up the amp - Amplified finish
This shade is insane, it's a bright purple shade which I absolutely love to use to add a pop of colour to my look. Again with it being an amplified shade it is incredibly pigmented and comfortable on the lips. This is definitely my I need a bit of a perk me up shade.
Stone - Matte finish
This is not a shade I am going to wear all the time however I do really like it for when I'm feeling a little brave. I do find it quite difficult to match this with eye looks and for me I prefer it when I use little to no colour on my lid.
Morange - Amplified finish
This is the perfect summery orange shade, it is very bright a little more slippy than my other two amplified finishes however as long as I blot it down I don't worry too much about it ending up all over my face. I will say that this does make my teeth look super yellow which isn't ideal however I do still love it.
Viva Glam Ariana Grande - Cremesheen finish
I thought I would get so much wear out of this as it is such a me however with it being a Cremesheen I just spend too much time worrying about whether it is all over my chin and cheeks. It is a beautiful colour however I do also find it ends up looking a little bit flaky and falls into any imperfections in my lips.
Mehr - Matte finish
I think this one is my favourite out of my collection, it is the perfect everyday matte pink for someone who loves a bold lip. I like how it is a mix between nude and pink. I find Mac's matte formula is incredibly comfortable on the lips and also really long lasting. I just love this shade and it's honestly the one that I would recommend to people first.
Lady Danger - Matte finish
This is such a pretty orange toned red which is perfect for the Summer. Again like Morange it does make the teeth look quite yellow however it is just such a lovely summer shade. I don't get quite as much wear time out of this one than I do out of Mehr as it doesn't fade as evenly however I do still get a good amount of time out of it.
Rebel - Satin finish

Would it be a Mac lipstick collection without this shade? I feel like it is something that everyone has and I completely get why. It is the perfect Autumn shade, it' a nice pinky purple which I do feel looks completely different on everyone who wears it. I love this one and get a huge amount of wear out of it.

Crème cup, Brick'o'la, Up the amp, Stone, Morange, Viva glam Ariana, Mehr, Lady danger, Rebel.
