MAC Lipstick Collab!๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’„

Hey guys๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

You may remember Madi The Mermaid talking about doing Mac lipstick swatches on her blog! (You didn’t? That’s why you so need to follow her tut tut ๐Ÿ˜) So nosey old me messaged her and asked if she would like to do one with me! This would then give our fellow readers a chance to see how Mac lippies look on different skin tones and of course the lovely Madi The Mermaid agreed!๐Ÿ˜

Now prior to our post we did email each other asking what lippies we had but realised we did not have a single one that was the sameโ˜น but we thought never mind, it would still be fun to collab and show off our own collection! And lipsticks vary so much on different skin tones, plus everyone owns a Mac lippie right? So here goes…..

Mac- Ruby Woo

  

My love of red started with this lipstick! It still is my absolute fave! It is a cool toned red with blues undertones (you can’t see the blue! Promise๐Ÿ™ˆ) which means your teeth will look whiter and brighter with this lippie! I believe Ruby Woo would work on any skin tones!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ I wear this lippie when I’m going out, special event or even everyday! That’s how versatile it is๐Ÿ˜„

Mac- Brave

  

A pinky based nude colour that I am not a major fan of. It looks great in the bullet but once applied can look a little washed out on my NC42 skin tone. Usually when I rock this colour I use a brown lip liner to bring some depth into the colour! (Excuse the lighting๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ) 

Mac- Russian Red

  

I saw this red on my fave person Sima (the owner of my fave local boutique CHINABOX!) and it looked awesome on her that I had to go get one of my own๐Ÿ˜‚ This red is a lot deeper than the Ruby woo and has warmer undertones. It’s a great colour again for any skin tone, as my sister is around NC35 and it looks great on her too! In fact she prefers Russian Red over Ruby woo!

Mac- Viva glam II

  

The Viva Glam II range was launched by Rhianna in 2014! This is a mauvey colour which I thought would look great on me as Rhianna is a woman of colour too but how wrong was I? Don’t get me wrong it’s gorge but again like Brave so washed out on meโ˜น. You can see here that I’ve had to pair with Mac Cork lip liner as it would not show up in the pic at all! 

Mac- Matte So Chaud

  

My first Mac orange lippie and I was not disappointed with this one! It’s such a gorge orange! Not too neon bright and it gives such a nice glowy effect on my skin. As this is quite a matte lippie like the Ruby Woo make sure your lips are flake free and ‘balmed’ as every flaw will show! (You have been warned!)

Mac- Hug Me

  

 
Another Mac nude! The question is do I like it?๐Ÿ˜‚ Mmmm kinda lol but again a very light pinky nude. It’s ok but again if you are an NC42 you may want to try it with a darker lip liner. 

Mac- Dark Side

  

A superb burgundy from Mac! I love this one! Looks fab on its own and mixed with other berries! It’s not a  matte finish but an amplified one, which means the colour will be super intense and slightly in a satin finish. I’ve rocked this lippie a lot this winter!

Mac- Candy Yum Yum

  

My first ever pink lippie from Mac! I bought this after I’d seen it on my fave makeup YouTuber Arshia’s makeup (she’s amazing!) As she is an NC42 like me, I reckoned that this would suit me too and holy moly I was right! I love this colour and yes it’s pretty bright in the tube but it looks beautiful on! If you are shy of bold, bright colours I would steer clear from Candy Yum Yum as it may be too much for you๐Ÿ™ˆ

And that is the end of my Mac Lipstick Collection! Does anyone have any other suggestions for colours for an NC42 skin tone? . Also if anyone knows of a nudey colour in the Mac collection that would suit my skin tone please do let me know about that as well! Thanksโค๏ธ

Now head over to https://madithemermaid.wordpress.com to check out her fab Mac lipstick collection and let us know if you spot any of your faves in either our posts!  Enjoy๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Great collection and I understand your frustration at the most STUNNING colours on others washing us darker skinned ladies out! No fair haha!
    I would recommend the shades twig, taupe and creme in your coffee (very my lips but better) for skin tones around the nc40ish mark and great nudes are mocha and kinda sexy (possibly jubilee)! Have a great day x
