Top 5 MAC Lipsticks



Hello lovelies!
Back with a beauty post this week.  I've been a bit naughty over the past few months and expanded my MAC Lipstick collection, oops!  So I've gone from owning about 4 to owning 8 or 9 since January!
I've picked out my five favourites to share with you lovely lot, so I hope you enjoy!



I'm a massive fan of bright lipsticks, I love colours that stand out - I'm really not a huge fan of neutrals at the best of times, but only because I don't think I suit them.  The newest bright to my collection is Heroine, and although I've only worn it twice, it's definitely become one of my favourites.  It's a matte finished bright purple - definitely for people who prefer bold colours.  As with all MAC lippies, the staying power is ridiculously good! Matte finishes are also definitely my favourite, so this ones a double winner for me.
My other favourite purple that I have is Rebel.  It's a satin finish, so it's not too matte and not too glossy.  It's definitely more pink than Heroine, but it's my favourite lipstick to wear on a night out, it just seems to go with all my outfits.
The least bright and bold lipstick that I love is Please Me.  I got this in New York in January, and although it doesn't look like it here, I've used it so much since then.  It's a pale pink colour with a matte finish.  I had a fear of buying this as I used to own a Barry M Pale Pink Matte lipstick and as much as I loved it, it looked awful on me.  Thankfully this one is a bit more neutrally toned, so I think it works better with my skin tone rather than a pale version of Barbie pink!  I love this one for day time wear as it's not too in your face.
The next one is the lipstick I wore on my graduation, it's Relentlessly Red.  It's a retro matte finish, which can be very drying but I adore the colour so much that I don't even mind if it's a bit drying.  As you can see from the swatch below, it's not really red at all.  It's definitely more of a pink colour, but it's perfect for summer.
And lastly is Viva Glam Rihanna.  I got this when I went to Paris in June, I couldn't resist.  I have no idea what finish this is but it's quite shimmery, not too glossy though.  It's a gorgeous red colour that I love wearing on nights out too to brighten up a dark outfit.


& that's my five favourite MAC lipsticks.  What are yours?

The Dreams Tag | TAG

I saw Lily Melrose and Dolly Bow Bow do this tag on YouTube, so I thought I'd take the questions and give it a go myself! I tag anyone and everyone, so if you do it, leave a link to your post in the comments!

What are you currently day dreaming about?

Nothing really in particular at the moment!

3 items in your dream wardrobe?

That pale pink coat River Island had in last winter that I can't find anymore (sob), a pair of monochrome Nike Air Max & a Michael Kors Rose Gold watch!  I don't ask for much...

Who is your dream celeb lookalike?

Who would I like to look like... Kylie Jenner! Or Kendall, they're both so gorgeous!

Who is currently "living the dream"?

A lot of people, but I'm gonna agree with Lily Melrose and say Zoella.  Her career is moving onwards and upwards and it's pretty amazing considering she just started with a blog!

Do you dream of love or money?

Love.. I think I'd rather be in love and have the love from my family and friends than have a tonne of money and be lonely.

What is your dream holiday escape?

Somewhere tropical & hot with beaches, swimming pools & cocktails on demand!

What is your dream YouTube collab?

Well, I don't make YouTube videos but if I did I'd love to work with Dan & Phil, Tyler Oakley or Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter.

Did your childhood dreams come true?

Nope, I did not get to meet McFly! ;) Haha, no but really, I'm not sure what my childhood dreams were, but I'm sure some of them have come true!

If one dream could come true, what would it be?

I'd be photographing for high end fashion magazines, shooting the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne!
