Retro Matte (below)
I only have two retro matte shades as I find they are very drying for my lips. The red is Ruby Woo which is pretty much a classic must have. This was the first red lipstick I ever bought because I didn’t use to like wearing red. But now I can’t stop wearing red and buying red lipsticks. And the pinky purple is Flat Out Fabulous which is a lovely bright shade.
The top shade is Twig, this is a dark brown my nude. I haven’t worn this one much either as I find it very dark on my skin tone. And below is Mac RED, which is one of my favorities!
(Below) I totally messed up on editing these photos and have ended up with doubles of two lipsticks. So below the top shade is Amorous which is a plume purple shade, I always forget how pretty this shade is until I swatch it on my hand. And the bottom shade is Snob, which is a pink nude and gorgeous for a every day lip!
I have two amplified lipsticks which are both gorgeous shades! The light pink is Saint Germain and is the perfect blue toned pink shade. And the coral red is Impassioned, this was the first Mac lipstick I ever bought! I find these quite creamy and I find they don’t last aslong as the matte formula.
And now onto my favourite formula, matte! Originally I didn’t like matte because I found them drying, but now I have found a really good lip liner which adds moisture and stops any bleeding from the colour. So my shades are from top to bottom. Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 which is an orangey red which I love so much! Next is Candy Yum Yum, this is a hot Barbie pink and looks so good with a tan in the summer. Next is a pinky nude, Please Me. And then the ever so popular Velvet Teddy which was a recent purchase. I love wearing this to work as it’s very natural. And then the darker brown is Whirl, I have to admit I have no worn this one a lot but hopefully this Autumn I will be more daring with it! And lastly Heroine, which is a bright purple!
And my final lipstick, my most recent one is from the Charlotte Olympia collection in Starlet Scarlet. You can probably tell by now that my favoritie shades are definelty the Reds and oranges!
