 When scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed I always stop to read MAC lipstick collection posts. Out of nosiness mainly, I'm always hoping that I see a shade I've never seen before that I fall in love with and can make an addition to my own collection. I had only one MAC lipstick for a long, long time and I've literally only started bulking out my collection this year, so it's not the biggest in the world but I have a fair few! It's also worth noting that I don't have many of the "household name" ones, you know, Velvet Teddy, Ruby Woo - yup. I don't have any of those! Sometimes I think to myself I'll definitely pick them up but whilst shopping I always end up swatching ones I prefer. So, here they are; my babies, my MAC lipstick collection!

-Taupe-

I love Taupe for a sophisticated look that can take you from day to night. It's a slightly red toned brown and I actually think this makes my lips look a lot fuller and more luscious. This is a matte finish but it feels to me very soft and nourishing on my lips which is a relief for me as sometimes matte shades can be too drying for my lips. Taupe is definitely a must have for anyone who loves that 90's brown/nude lip look.

-Diva-

My boyfriend loves this lipstick and I always feel super sultry and glamorous when I'm wearing it. Although I find it unfortunately a bit drying, the colour is so stunning I can't stay mad at it for that reason, I just make sure my lips are exfoliated and moisturized before wearing. Diva is a matte burgundy red and the colour is so, so flawless.

-Up The Amp-

This stunning, vibrant purple shade was featured in my July Favourites post and for good reason. The formula is so creamy and nourishing for my lips, it literally just glides on which I absolutely love; I always look forward to wearing it. It definitely isn't something I can wear every day, but I think that makes it more of an exciting ordeal when I do wear it!

-Cherish-

One of my absolute favourites for every day, Cherish is a beautiful lighter nude shade with a pink tone to it. I actually find that the swatch on MAC's website and when swatching it in real life it appears darker than when I actually apply it to my lips which I can't figure out. Saying that, the colour when it is on my lips is so gorgeous and elegant. I have fully review this beauty which you can read here!

-Mehr-

I'm not a massive pink lipstick person for every day, but Mehr is a pink that isn't too in your face and is slightly cooler than most pink lippies which I really like. For anyone that is a bit more inclined to stay away for pink lipsticks like myself but feels like they should try at least one this should be the one for you! I don't know why I don't really like pink lipstick on myself that much as it's my favourite colour; maybe because I wear it a fair bit, I'm not sure.

-Fast Play-

Fast Play is definitely one of my least reached for MAC lipsticks, it doesn't really excite me like any of the others if I'm honest. It is another pink shade which may be the reason behind it, but again it's very neutral, subtle and wearable. It is a very sophisticated shade and the colour payoff is stunning so maybe I'll warm to it in the future but there are definitely others in my small but sweet collection that I love a lot more.

-Spirit-

My most recently purchased MAC lipstick, even though technically I didn't buy this myself, it was a birthday gift from my mumma! This is an absolutely gorgeous shade and one I've been wearing almost every day since buying it. It's a 'your lips but better' nude shade and I love pairing it with extremely glamorous eyes of an evening or with very minimal makeup during the day to create a polished look.
