TODAY IS A BIG DAY. MY FIRST EVER YOUTUBE VIDEO IS LIVE! The video is linked at the bottom of this post if you prefer watching & listening (which I do, personally). But for those that prefer to read, you best believe I typed up a post for you too!
About a year ago I wrote a post about my Top 10 Favourite MAC Lipsticks. I wanted to do an updated more condensed version, showcasing the shades I reach for on a daily basis. So low and behold, my Top 5 MAC Lipsticks!
I purchased this about a month ago on a whim while I was heading home from work for the day. I hadn't heard of it before which was shocking, as it seems that I own every warm brown shade ever made. This one is in the matte family, and is very similar to Persistence which is featured in just a little bit. If I would have known how similar they are, I probably would have left this one as they are extremely close in colour. Nevertheless, I do still reach for them equally. I find Taupe to be just a tad lighter.
This one comes to no surprise to you all, I'm sure. If you read my posts regularly or know me in person, you know I am absolutely obsessed with Honeylove. It is a matte finish, and matches absolutely every eye look under the sun. This is my holy grail nude shade, and if you don't already have it, I suggest you start the car to go grab one for yourself!
3) VIVA GLAM V
If you are new to makeup, don't like bright colours, and want something extremely easy to wear, this is for you! This is the perfect shade to just toss in your purse for touch ups, as you don't have to worry about staying in the lines. It's sheer enough that you don't need a liner or a mirror to get a good application. You can very easily "go with the flow", if you will. This shade will suit absolutely any skin tone, as it isn't too warm or cool.
This has probably been my most worn shade during the last 3 or 4 months. I absolutely love how warm it is! If I ever decide to wear eyeshadow, it is almost always in the warm brown family. Persistence is the perfect addition to that eye look! It is matte, extremely comfortable on the lips, and has a decent staying power. It's not going to stay in place if you're sipping on something all day, but for your average matte lipstick, it's pretty great!
My favourite bold colour in my entire collection. It may not be the most unique, but it is my most worn "bold" shade. I have started drifting away from the bright reds and moving towards the bright orange/tangerine shades. I like how it is a little different, but still remarkably wearable! If I'm being completely honest, I actually think this shade looks even better on brunettes. But, that doesn't stop me from rocking it :)
This concludes my Top 5 MAC Lipsticks! If you enjoyed this post, feel free to share, like or comment below. Let me know any of your favourite MAC lipsticks that I need to try!
