MAC Lipstick Collection

I love lipstick. It's my most purchased beauty item ever and I can't even begin to tell you have many I have. It's a bit mental really. So when I say Mac lipsticks are the best of the lot. I really mean it. 

Mac lipsticks are the only lipsticks I've ever fully used up. Some colours I've used and repurchased and some I haven't. But the best thing about Mac I'd say, is that when you take into store 6 empty packaging (think foundation bottles, lipsticks, even eyeshadows) you get a free lipstick of your choice.

You may wonder why are these lipsticks so great? (you may not, but I'm going to tell you anyway!) For starters, they smell amazing. They have this lovely vanilla scent, that isn't too overpowering but like a lip balm almost. They also have loads of different textures, shades and collections. Some collections like Viva Glam are endorsed by celebrities and all proceeds go to charity.

I've probably been buying and collecting Mac lipsticks since I was about 16. I've had some unfortunate colour choices (Mac Myth - google it), lost some on nights out, given some away and had to throw some away due to makeup expiry dates but these are the ones in my collection now. I love looking at these kinds of posts as I'm always intrigued to see what other people have in their collections and also I like to see swatches. This is usually incase I want to know what a colour looks like on the lips and whether it would suit me, so I can then rush out to buy it should I like it!

Before I end with a crap tonne of pictures, my faves of the bunch are probably: Velvet Teddy, which isn't actually shown here as I'd lost it at the time of taking this pictures, Mehr and All fired up. Also don't judge my terrible lipstick application! Now on with the pictures...
