Today I wanted to do an updated collection of my MAC Lipsticks. I wrote a post like this last January, but you may remember back in September I wrote a post explaining that most the pictures on my blog were deleted bc of a mishap with my Picasa album. Well here's a brand new post! I guess it was time for an update since I added a few more lipsticks to my collection since last year. I was going to swatch on my arm, but I thought that showing each color on index cards would show each shade in it's true color.
Incase you're new to MAC Lipsticks, I abbreviated each finish of the lipstick and my definition on how each lipstick finish feels on my lips.
* (AC)- Amplified/Amplified Crème
Honestly, I don't see the difference between these two types of lipsticks. Both lipsticks are very creamy and pigmented. These usually wear about 4 to 5 hours.
* (S)- Satin
This finish applies on my lips smoothly and has a nice sheen to them even though I've noticed that a few seem a little drying. These lipsticks wear about 5 hours.
* (CS) - Cremesheen
This is another finish I really like! These lipsticks have a creamy texture and usually last about 5 hours before I have to reapply. These lipsticks also have a gloss like shine.
* (M) Matte
I don't find any of my matte lipsticks drying at all which surprised me! Application is fairly simple, this finish glides across my lips without any issues. Since it's a matte finish, these lipsticks wear for most of the day. I really like this finish.
* (RM)- Retro Matte
Unlike the matte lipsticks, I find Retro Matte VERY drying! I have to prepare my lips with MAC's Prep+Prime before application and everything is fine. I definitely recommend using MAC's Prep+Prime or some sort of lip balm before apply these Retro Matte lipsticks. These lipsticks also last most of the day
* (F)- Frost
These lipsticks are shimmery and shiny without being too over the top, very wearable. I've worn these lipsticks about 3 hours before I have to reapply.
* (LE)- Limited Edition lipsticks
