Favourites: Lipsticks + Glosses

A series of favourites posts, starting with lippies as they seem to be the least work given it's 1am!

 MAC Summer Shower - Part of the Fashion Flower collection last spring. It's basically a really sheer blue with blue/teal shimmer. Adds nothing but shimmer but I loves it.

MAC Fabby. It's a kind of mauve-y pink with shimmer. An odd colour really but very nice when on. Has a slightly frosted finish but nothing OTT.

 MAC Watch Me Simmer - Released twice this year already, a bright pink coral.

MAC Costa Chic. My go to coral. Frosted finish, again nothing OTT. Coral perfection!

MAC Angel. This is my second tube of this, it's my go to pink.

MAC Oh, Oh, Oh. Looks really scary in the tube, but when worn it's a really nice muted purple-pink with gold shimmer.

 MAC Whirls and Twirls - Last holiday collection. A really frosted barely there warm pink. Doesn't really add colour, just shimmer, but looks lovely in winter for frosted pink lips.

MAC Viva Glam Gaga. This pink is too blue on me, I know that, yet I still wear it purely because it's a Gaga. I actually have three of these, this one being the second tube I used. I have an unused tube that will remain unused!

MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2, I also have three tubes of this (and yes, one will remain unused!). A medium nude, not too pink, not too yellow.

Illamasqua Apocolips. No, I don't wear this on a daily basis :P But it's teal and I love teal, so there!

Chanel Chance. Light yellow pink. Perfect for a "I can't be bothered" lip (plus, the perfume smells fab).

Dior Zinnia Red. I think this might be my perfect red. Medium dark, blue based. Nom.

Benefit *forgets name*. Basically just gold shimmer, nothing more. Lovely on it's own or layered.

Maybelline Cherry Pop. One of the new candy lipsticks. I swear, this smells EXACTLY like cherry lollies. The temptation to take a bite is just too much at times. It looks red but it actually comes out a shade of orange. At least on my hand, on lips it isn't as...odd.

MAC Strange Potion. Originally launched with Venomous Villians, re-launched with Surf Baby (which, to this day is still my favourite MAC collection). A slightly shimmery coral.

MAC Pink Lemonade. Pinky coral.

MAC Richer, Lusher. Pinky coral with barely-there white shimmer. Have you noticed that I love corals yet?

MAC Narcissus. A strangely beautiful semi-sheer medium purple. 

MAC Pleasure Principal. Pink/teal glitter, no colour.

 MAC *minds drawn a blank - will so need to update this in the morning*. Sheer pink with teal/pink sparkle.
