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.

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

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.

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

Nyx cosmetics Macaron Lippies

These are the new Nyx Macaron Lipsticks. There are 12 shades in the collection.  Each lipstick retails for $6 each. I only got 5 , but will get more. …

These lipsticks are opaque when you build them up. I had to swipe 2 to 3 times to get the intensity you see in the pictures above. All the color except the yellow applied evenly. With the yellow (citron) was patchy and uneven,  you must exfoliate or it will look horrible.  Also the yellow (citron) needed a similar color liner. The other lippies I used a clear lip pencil.
The only color I have worn for an extended time was Violet. It wore for around 4 hours before I needed to fix it.
I personally like nyx lipstick formula. These are matte colors with no shimmer,  but they are creamy and moisturizing.

image

They are not flat mattes or even typical mattes. I love that nyx came out with this collection.  For many years bright bold lips have been the trend, but I could never bring myself to spend $15+ on a green or blue lipstick that I may wear a few times. ( Though since I am a makeup junkie I do own at least 3 or 4 other blue lip products- don’ t judge)

All in all these are a great inexpensive addition to any makeup lovers collection. They are fun , bold, good quality and fairly wearable.

review of Orly Nail Polish

Self, maybe paying more for polish actually worth it. Maybe you get what you pay for.So the other day while strolling the isles of Sally Beauty Supply i came across Orly nail polishes on sale “BOGO Free”…. This is the perfect opportunity to try out 2 and really see if I would in the future pay full price of $8 for 1. That same night when i got home, i polished my nail and toes right away. Being so happy with the results i had to start a blog and write about it…lol :) Below i will break down in catergories my over all opion.Soo here it is. My review/opinion of the Orly nail polish:
