Lipstick Haul: MAC

For the past two weeks, I’ve been on a mission to find the PERFECT red lipstick for my skintone. I’ve tried Sleek, i’ve tried NYX and i’ve even tried Chanel, but to no avail.

Until today!
I bopped my way into MAC this morning and swatched all the red lipstick to my heart’s content until I found my perfect shade. While there I picked up a couple other colours too, photos below:

First up is ‘Brave Red’ in Cremesheen! (I know in the photo I made a mistake and put ‘color’ instead of ‘cream’. Silly mare!)

‘Brave Red’ is a bright red with yellow undertones which I feel would suit most skintones. My skintone is quite red so I think the contrast between my skin and the lipstick works.

(Colour is a bit “off” due to flash)
Next up is ‘Milan Mode’, a Lustre which is a very “sheer deep pink with a multi-dimentional pearl”.
This colour is EXTREMELY sheer so it takes multiple applications to build up the colour. I love it! Great shade for Summer. I always feel that seer lipsticks are great if you are trying out colours for the first time. They are very buildable.
Lastly is ‘Cyber’, which is the darkest MAC lipstick in their collection.
Cyber is a satin based lipstick which is described as “an intense blackish-purple” and is a colour i purchased primarily for use in the Winter. I’ve never used a colour this dark before but i thought i’d branch out a bit and experiment!
And there we have it! Do any of you guys have these colours or similar bright colours? I need ideas!

  • those colors look hot on you!!

  • Loving Cyber, never tried it, but I am going to! Rebel is a really cool color too!

  • Misnomer

    Those colours all look fab on your complexion. I wanted to ask though, have you tried Mac's Ruby Woo? I love that colour and its the only lipstick that I've found that really works for me. It's dry though. You must wear lip balm under it, but the colour is worth it! 🙂

  • i love Cyber!!

  • Since when did you get a lip piercing???? Loooool I know that's random but I gotta ask

    Loving cyber on you. I want!!!!

  • I really like the look of Cyber! I’m not a fan of sheen lipsticks cause of their staying power, but really like that one! xx
