My Current MAC Lipstick Collection

What I currently have:

  • Shy shine (Lustre) On Dianne – baby pink which needs to be  paired with boldy bare lip liner due to wheatish skin tone effect
  • Speed dial (Cremesheen) On Dianne – glossy pink | perfect for her complexion – barbie/true blue based pinks look garsly

  • Brick o la (Amplified) On Dianne –  
  • Twig (Satin) On Dianne – MLBB, beautiful mauve that instantly picks up complexion with or without makeup
  • Craving (Amplified) On Dianne – plum and mauve merge into one, love this shade! On days where my skin looks awful or tired, craving brightens it up | also makes teeth look extra white |
  • Flat out Fabulous (Retro Matte) On Dianne – Perfectly matte fuchsia that’s an instant show stopper, can only be worn on nights out as it appears quite intense on my tan skin

  • Whirl (Matte) On Dianne – Dark brown nude (pencil is lighter – mlbb however lipstick comes across dark)

 

 

What I returned:

  • Angel (Frost) On Dianne – pale pink (not even baby or blue based pink) the shade just made me look too pale and I couldn’t only pull it off with dark smokey eyes (just)
  • MAC RED (Satin) On Dianne – Reminded me of a raspberry red (it had a pink tint on me) brighter and pinker than Russian Red 
  • Brave (Satin) On Dianne – pinky borderline mauve, did not brighten up complexion like Twig so it was returned 
  • Velvet Teddy (Matte) On Dianne – came across ill looking (gave the dead look due to wheatish skin)
  • Blankety (Amplified) On Dianne – DEAR LORD, I looked ill. Not even lip liner could save me
  • Love lorn (Lustre) On Dianne – the perfect cute baby pink shade that didn’t make my tan skin look like Nicki Minaj
  • Honeylove (Matte) On Dianne – Same comment as blankety
  • Media (Matte) On Dianne – Two shades darker than Diva, one shade lighter than Cyber – very intense
  • Cyber (Satin) On Dianne – Deep, dark purple – borderline gothic, I just couldn’t pull it off
  • Tabla (Amplified) On Dianne – Coffee brown (like a long black) I was after a chocolate brown and Tabla was a little too dark, too intense, too 90s TLC for me

What I want:

  • Kinda sexy
  • Please me
  • Cherish

I will continue to update the blog post as my collection grows/changes 🙂

Lady danger on Dianne

MAC describes Lady danger as ‘Vivid bright coral-red’ – on me with a face full of makeup it’s a bright red with a hint of orange. I think its due to my tan skin, the shade does not come off as vivid orange however on my fair skin Caucasian friend, the shade looks ORANGE – completely orange with a tint of red! (not referring to my friend on the right, I believe she is wearing MAC’s lip glass called cultured).

I applied Lady danger once, blotted with a tissue and reapplied. I was out for 6 hours, drinking, eating greasy foods and when I came home the shade was still on my lips with minimal fading. So i would rate the staying power 10/10.

What’s funny is, swatch on my hand LD looks coral (it shows up differently on my lips)
