Top 5 MAC Lipsticks

December 11, 2011

Ever since my lipstick addiction started in 2007, MAC lipsticks have been my go-to for a pretty pout. I love how they come in all sorts of colors and finishes (perfect for experimenting!) and are super affordable at just $14.50. Here are my top 5 must-have MAC lipsticks from the permanent line!

#1 Girl About Town
One of my very first bright lipsticks, Girl About Town is a gorgeous bright fuchsia in the Amplified formula. Love the creamy, non-drying texture and the contrasts it adds to my dark hair.

#2 Russian Red
There is a reason why this matte blue-based red is loved by many, including Dita Von Teese and Christina Aguilera. Not only does the classic red adds instant glamour, its cool undertones can also help make your teeth appear whiter.

#3 Creme D’Nude
Thanks to its pink undertones, this “pale muted peach beige” in the Cremesheen formula is great for a no-brainer nude lip without washing me out.

#4 Modesty
The secret behind that my-lips-but-better look in my profile picture? Modesty, a warm neutral with pink undertones in the Cremesheen formula.

#5 Saint Germain
Every girl should own a barbie pink lipstick and Saint Germain is my favorite from MAC’s permanent range. The cool-based “clean pastel pink” color in the Amplified formula goes on super pigmented so all you need is a few dabs to turn heads.

    Modesty- I like. It’s now on my get-from-MAC-next-time-I’m-there list. Thanks!

    Chatterbox is one of my everyday go-to’s.
    Lickable for when I’m feeling fiesty, it looks very similar to Girl About Town.

      Chatterbox is nice too!

    I like modesty on you(or maybe I just like that FOTD the best). I only own 3 mac lipsticks (crosswire, ever hip and freckletone)so it’s silly to pick a favorite out of the three…
