My new toy!!

image

I got this from ROSS for $ 5! !!!. There was only one left. I need like 25 of these though…lol…

image

But I will make due with this one until I find a lipstick holder that holds 300 lipsticks. .smh!!!

image

This are just my mac lipsticks that are not in the box.  The rest of my Mac lipsticks are still in the box for whatever reason. .. This is a great storage system especially for Mac lipsticks , since the tops are rounded and the name of the colors is on the bottom of the tube. I know you can purchase these at multiple places online, but it was cool to find it for a reasonable price in a store…. I would love to see some of yall makeup storage ideas. .  Post pics, links, and suggestions below. .. Also let me know on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pintrest! !! Thanks luvs for stopping by! !!!

Hello luvs!!! Today I decided to show you my favorite go to red lippies. A red lip is classic,  sophisticated, and exudes confidence. I dont wear red lipstick often but when I do, these are my go to selection. I hope you see some you like or are inspired to pick on of these reds up and rock it out.

All from different brands and different finishes depending on my mood.

Mac Lipstick Collection Swatches

As promised here are swatches of my Mac lipstick collection. I notice while swatching that quite a few of my Mac lipsticks are limited edition (Sorry)… so what I will do is search through my entire lipstick collection in an effirt to find dupes for the LE lipsticks. 

image

I will also add lip swatches. Lip swatching is taxing on the lips, but bare with me. I will do whatever it takes for my lovely #lipsticknation.

image

There are all my purples.  Favorites are Instigator, Up the Amp and Heroine.l

image

Pink favorites are Candy Yum Yum, Happy Go Lucky and FLAT OUT FABULOUS. If you do not own Flat Out Fabulous- Then you must buy it today. ..It will change your life..lol

image

I dont have many red MAC lipsticks and really dont need another. I actually have 2 Riri Woo’s. That is the only lipstick I had to ever back up. Just like Flat Out Fabulous is everything for the pinks,  Riri Woo is LIFE for the reds. I know that Riri Woo was limited edition,  so unless you willing to pay the Ebay Monster $45 for Riri Woo.. I eou l d suggest getting Ruby Woo. RIRI Woo’s paternal twin.

image

These I guess I would categorize as other. To be quite honest none of the shade really work on me on their own. The only color of the bunch I have wore alone that work for me was bronze shimmer.  It is very natural,  summertime effortless on me. The rest of the color need to be mixed with another color or liner to look well on me. That the conclusion. Lipswatches coming soon!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Let me know what are some of your favorite mac lippies.  Also follow me on Twitter and Instagram @givemelipstick AND like me on Facebook at Givemelipstick. <3 <3
