I feel like if John Lewis has 15% off mac lipsticks you just have to take that opportunity and grab it. I've been pondering over purchasing some new Mac shades for a while now and I figured there's no better time than the present. Especially when the present involves 15% off. In the end a few of the shades I wanted where out of stock so I picked out two nudes I'd heard a lot about and two darker shades off my list. I ended up picking 3 matte shades and a lustre shade which is a Mac formula I hadn't tried before however one I really like.
So without further ado lets get onto the shades I picked. First off I went for sin which is a stunning autumnal purple matte shade, this was one I had seen in quite a few Mac lipstick collections and knew I wanted. It is just on of those perfect autumnal/winter shades and one I feel like I'm going to get a lot of wear out of in the next couple of months. Next up I went for Whirl which is a shade which is so hyped up on blogs and in videos. I'm a little undecided about this shade on me however it is very pretty in the swatch. The swatch makes it look a beautiful pinky brown however I'm not sure on me whether it pulls just a little too yellow. I'm definitely going to have to wear it a couple more times before making my final verdict.
The third and final matte shade is Diva, even though this one looks very similar to Sin in the swatch it is actually a much more red toned berry. Think on the lines of Rimmel 107 but darker whereas Sin is a darker version of Rebel. All three of the matte finishes are incredibly comfortable to wear however I would say that whirl is a tiny bit more drying than the other Mac matte lipsticks I have. Finally we have the lustre finish I picked up. I've heard so many good things about the shade Syrup and I have to say I think it is my favourite shade out of the four I picked up on this occasion. It is an incredibly comfortable formula to wear and one of those shades that is perfect for just chucking on without a mirror. It's a gorgeous pinky rose nude which is my perfect my lips but better colour. I
would definitely recommend this one for anyone who is looking for a nice everyday shade.

I'd love to know what Mac shades are on your wishlists and what shades you think I need to own!
