Romantic Lip: A MAC Lipstick Haul

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

My lipstick game has been pretty strong lately, thanks to MAC Cosmetics. I recently started using MAC lip products and I'm impressed. Here are a few of my recently purchased favorites in all different "romantic" shades. Also, please excuse my untamed brows. Sometimes they do weird things.

Russian Red: This color will flatter any skin type! I've heard so many great things, so I had to try it myself. This is actually the very first MAC lipstick I'd ever owned and the first impression had me grinning from ear to ear. I carry this color with me everywhere as it is appropriate anytime of the day (if you're into that kind of thing).

Please Me: "Please Me" is a pinky nude shade that is perfect for everyday wear. It has a matte finish so it can be a bit drying, but a little chapstick before applying never hurts. Whenever I get heavy on the eyeliner, I go for this color to quiet down the lip area. Sometimes I feel it's best to play with one feature than to go completely overboard.

Crosswires: I heard about this shade from Essiebutton on Youtube and I fell in love. It's one of MAC's cremesheen finishes and it leaves your lips feeling soft and moisturized. I wear this shade regardless of the seasons, but this shade makes me feel like Spring is just around the corner. The coral/pink color gives off a very retro vibe. In other words, I consider this a very Joan Holloway lip color - my love for Mad Men is endless.

All Fired Up: I saved the best for last. The pigment of this lipstick is undeniably beautiful and timeless. It has a matte finish and is part of MAC's Retro Matte collection. I recommend this lipstick to anyone who admires a bold lip!


  1. I love 'Crosswires' the best, it really flatters your skin tone and looks really natural :) Awesome post <3


  2. I've been looking for the perfect shade of dusty pink for ages. The crosswires one seems really nice and flattering :) You look flawless by the way ! Russian Red is definitely one of my favs as well ! x

  3. You really did go on a MAC lipstick haul! Love all these colors! They look amazing with your skin tone and hair color. I could see myself wearing all of these, but my favorite is please me. I love nude pink colors! And I love that it's matte. : )
