TOP 5 MAC LIPSTICKS -- Summer Brights Edition!







Hello lovelies! Here are my Top 5 MAC lipsticks for Summer! As you are about to see I have an affinity for the Amplified Crème finish; they are super creamy, extremely pigmented and last for hours. When I wear a bright lip I don't want to have to constantly check that it hasn't smudged or reapply often. Amplified lipsticks hug your lips and then leave a beautiful stain that has to be removed with a makeup wipe.


Hope you enjoy!



(L-R) Chatterbox, Impassioned, Vegas Volt, Girl About Town, Pink Pearl Pop
 



CHATTERBOX (Amplified Crème)

Chatterbox is the quintessential pink... perfection! If I had to pick a favorite out these it would definitely be Chatterbox!!!
IMPASSIONED (Amplified Crème)

Impassioned is a neon corally watermelon pink that looks amazing with winged eyeliner. It is so bright that my camera has a hard time registering the color. It is actually brighter than this lip swatch shows!
VEGAS VOLT (Amplified Crème)

Vegas Volt is an orangey coral that looks amazing on warm skintones! I mix this with pink lipsticks to get a more wearable coral for my fair complexion. I did a post yesterday if you would like to see pictures!
GIRL ABOUT TOWN (Amplified Crème)

Girl About Town is a bright fushia that looks gorgeous all year round, but especially for summer!

PINK PEARL POP (Cremesheen + Pearl)

Pink Pearl Pop is definitely the tamest of my top five! You have to build up the color of this one to reach full opacity, but it is such a wearable bright pink -- LOVE!








Thank you for reading!!! What is your favorite lipstick for summer?



Sarah

  9. Ah so many pretties! Chatterbox is gorgeous, I have samples of Impassioned & Vegas Volt but VV wasn't all it seemed in the sample, I prefer Morange for a brighter orange lip! Impassioned is the perfect summer colour, though. I also want Girl About Town! xx
