Blogtober Day 1 - Mac Lipstick collection

So I'm going to attempt to do a post every day this month so we will see how that goes, however today I thought I would kick it all off with a Mac lipstick collection as who doesn't love them! So without further ado lets get on with the post. 

Yash - Matte - A orange toned matte nude shade, this one is pretty pale however I love the way it looks both with a deeper liner or a light liner underneath.

Creme Cup - Cremesheen - A very pale pink nude shade, for me this one just doesn't look good and also makes my teeth look super yellow. 

Fleur de force - Cremesheen - This is pretty much my perfect nude shade, it's a perfect browny nude and with it being a creme sheen it is incredibly comfortable. 

Modesty - Cremesheen - This is a much more pinky toned nude, again it's another brilliant everyday nude shade. 

Viva Glam V - Lustre - I'm not one for shimmery lipsticks however this one just looks so beautiful on the lips. It's a gorgeous very sheer pinky nude.

Whirl - Matte - Everyone seems to love this shade, it is a deeper nude shade and I have to say I find I don't really use this enough. I'm not quite sure what it is I just find it doesn't look half as good on me as it does on so many others. 

Brave - Satin - This is another pinky nude (Can you sense a theme) This one is a little sheerer and a little deeper and has a gorgeous slightly glossy finish. 

Twig - Satin - This one is actually very similar to Brave just a little deeper and a bit more orange toned meaning it would definitely be the one to go for if you didn't want something too pink. 

Mehr - Matte - Possibly the pinkest out of all the nude shades this one is one of my all time favourite lipsticks. It has a super comfortable matte finish and in my opinion is just perfect for everyday. 

Syrup - Lustre - This is most definitely a my lips but better colour (I hate that phrase) but in this case it's true. This just adds some gloss to my lips and makes them look super plump and hydrated. 

Amorous - Satin - Moving onto the more berry shades, this is a beautiful berry nude shade which is perfect for this transition into autumn makeup.

Brick O La - Amplified - This was one of the first Mac lipsticks I feel in love with and I still love it to this day. It's a gorgeous terracotta shade again perfect for this time of year. 

Morange - Amplified - This is the most intense bright orange, what I love about this one is that it isn't a matte shade as in the summer I tend to prefer a hydrating lip, meaning this is both the perfect summer colour and the perfect summer formula. 

Lady danger - Matte - This one is a cult classic, an orange toned matte red which again is one I get a lot of use out of in the summer.

Chilli - Matte - This is more of an autumnal red shade as it is much deeper however it does still have a slight orange tone to it. 

Up the Amp - Amplified - This is a shade I don't wear often but I absolutely love every time I do wear it. It's a gorgeous bright purple shade which I very pigmented and perfect for a pop of colour. 

Breathing fire - Matte - This is a bright barbie pink shade with a matte finish and there isn't a whole lot more to say.

Rebel - Satin - This is such a classic lip shade, on me it looks a little more pink however on some people it is a lot deeper. I think this one really depends on what skin tone you have to what shade it is. 

Diva - Matte - A red toned berry shade which is a gorgeous winter shade, this is one of the more drying matte lipsticks from Mac. 

Sin - Matte - This one is very similar to Diva however it is a little more brown toned and has a little less purple in it. I also find the formula of this one is a touch less drying however I do still love both of them. 

Antique velvet - Matte - A very red toned brown shade, it isn't actually one I've had the chance to wear much yet however it's a gorgeous shade and I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of it again in the autumn months. 

Viva Glam Arianna Grande - Cremesheen - I love the shade of this one but I absolutely despise the fact that it is a cremesheen finish. It smudges all over the face and just doesn't look great but the colour is stunning so I do wear it from time to time when I know I'm not going to be eating or drinking or anything like that.

Stone - Matte - This is a browny griege shade and again is not one I often reach for. I find the griege on my very pale skin just makes me look a bit dead so it's one I only tend to wear when I have a lot of bronzer on.

Matte royal - Matte - The final shade is this gorgeous royal blue which I wear a lot more than you think I would. I love a blue lip and I find this one works nicely on it's own but also looks fab as a base for NYX's Jet set liquid suede. 

So that's it for today, I would love to know what your favourite Mac shades are and what you have on your Wishlist!
