New MAC Lipsticks Sqqquuuueeeeee :)

Hey there gorgeous glitterati :)

Sorry I've been so very absent, I've been sick and just haven't felt like moving, let alone blogging - But I'm back now with lots of new up and coming posts. I've had lots of time to mull over what I want to blog about and I've got a few bits and pieces in the pipeline.

Anyway, firstly I thought I'd show you my new MAC lipsticks - I have a "slight" obsession with lipstick as I'm sure you can tell, especially MAC, it's my favorite ever brand of lipstick and I just can't stop myself picking more up as and when I see them as they have such a vast collection.

I've acquired 4 new lipsticks in the past month or so, 2 were purchased by myself from a MAC store and the other 2 were obtained through swaps on good old makeup alley. Anyhoooooooo .... On to the pictures and swatches.

Left to right above we have the following :

  • Craving (Amplified) - A deep plumy pink with a hint of brown. So not my usual type of shade but I tried it on at my local MAC counter and fell in love. Maybe I'll do a LOTD with this one, it's so gorgeous for everyday use but could be so easily jazzed up for a dramatic evening look.

  • Full Fuchsia (Amplified) - A beautiful bright fuchsia pink, perfect for the incoming Spring and Summer, I love my pinks and this one is no exception. Unfortunately this is a Pro only shade, but it can be ordered over the phone via MAC pro and MAC pro stores so if you love it, it is obtainable.

  • Costa Chic (Frost) - A lovely light orange toned coral, very frosty and definitely not one for everybody, it can be very hard to pull off due to the heavy frost finish, but I love it. Teamed with bronzed dewy skin, this lipstick will be amazing in the hot Summer nights we're hopefully going to get.

  • Vegas Volt (Amplified) - A very bright orange coral almost neon. I LOVE this lipstick so much, the shade is perfect for the Spring trends about at the minute, it just checks every single box for me.

You can see that 3 of the shades I've gotten are amplified finishes which is 100% my favorite finish of MAC lipsticks, it's creamy and opaque in just one swipe and they last for hours on end on my lips without drying them out at all.

Do you have any must have Spring / Summer shades I should check out or are you now lusting after any of the shades in this post?

Take care and love to all xox


  1. They're so pretty! Especially love Full Fuschia and costa chic x x

    1. Thanks :) I'm trying to make my lipstick collection less pink, though I can't resist the odd one every now and then x

  2. Oh I love the look of craving, it's a shade I would wear a lot!

    1. Craving really shocked me, I wasn't sure of it when I saw it in the tube, but when I tried it on it looked lovely :)
      You should check it out x

  3. I love the Fuschia. I have a beautiful Benefit gloss with stunning shimmer in it called 'Back to the Fuschia'.
    Have always been a plummy/neutral lippy wearer but in the last year I have broadened the colours I wear.
    At Christmas I got the gorgeous Clarins 'Rouge Prodige', a retro pillar box red which is ridiculously moisturising with a beautiful sheen. The gold packaging feels great too.
    I tried my 1st Mac lipstick recently, it's a not very exciting nudey but a good staple all the same & nice n matte. There's something about the matte rubberized lippy case I like too :-)
    Keep swatching xxx

    1. Oooo I have that clarins lippie too, it's gorgeous isn't it, so creamy and moisturising too :)
      Which MAC nude have you got? I'm looking to get something nude next, preferably a pinky toned nude, I was thinking blankety or patisserie next.
      I've had benefit lipglosses in the past, but I'm more of a lipstick girl now and I can't resist my MAC :)
