Limited Edition MAC Lipsticks

Thought it would be nice to share with you all some swatches of my opinion on some of the 2015 Limited Edition MAC lipsticks. I have included pictures of swatches on my hand and on my lips. I used the lipsticks straight on my lips, but I would recommend using a lip brush with the brighter colours.

MAC Wash & Dry in Steam Heat 

This is the newest lipstick I have bought. The packaging is a colourful tie dye design and has a plastic feeling. The lipstick is a satin formula, my favourite MAC formula. Satins are comfortable to wear but is still really pigmented. The colour is a really lovely red and I'm really looking forward to wearing this summer in the daytime. 

MAC Bao Bao Wan in Forbidden Sunrise 

I love the Bao Bao packaging, it is a dark grey with an iridescent green sparkle and is incredibly soft to the touch. The lipstick is a matte formula, a formula I find harder to wear but incredibly long lasting. I always make sure to put a base on my lips before wearing a matte to avoid drying out my lips. The colour is bright orange. 

MAC Julia Petit in Petite Red

The packaging is black with Julia Petits signature in gold on it. I like the simplicity of the packaging and it is also has a plastic feel to it. This is another satin formula and it is a berry red colour. It's not quite red or pink. It is somewhere in between. This colour is fab for a night out, especially paired with a bold eye. 

MAC Toledo in Barbecue 

This was my first limited edition MAC lipstick and I love it. The packaging is white with illustrated faces going around the bottom of the lipstick. This is another matte formula and it is a perfect orange red colour. I've worn this out on a couple of nights out and loved wearing it. I think the colour is perfect for those nights where you don't want to wear a full red lipstick but still want the effect of a red lippy. 

MAC Cinderella in Free As A Butterfly 

I'm not going to lie, I bought this for the packaging. I originally wanted Royal Ball but it had run out and then impulse bought this one when it was restocked. The packaging is gorgeous. It is a pale blue colour with a pink pearl effect. The lipstick itself is a lustre formula. This is the first lipstick I've had in this formula and it is very sheer. The colour is a champagne gold but very sheer. I am not fussed on the lipstick itself but I absolutely love the packaging. No regrets here! 

Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know which one is your favourite! 

Lots of G Love xxx
