Parisa's top 5 MAC lipsticks (Guest Post)

Aaah a lipstick post. You know how much I love my lipsticks, and I also love finding out what others' favourite lipsticks are so this guest post from Parisa is right up my alley! Parisa is a 21 year old university student from the North-East of England. She blogs over at Addicted to a Life of Material and can also be found on Twitter (@Parisa909). Over to you Parisa!

Top 5 MAC Lipsticks
After watching the beautiful Zara’s video on her top 5 MAC lipsticks, it got me thinking which ones were my favourites. 99% of my lipstick collection is from MAC, I just adore the colour range, rich pigmentation and the staying power. It took me a while to whittle them down to just 5, but these are my top choices…

MAC Please Me
My ultimate pink lipstick! It’s so flattering on my lips, a matte cool-toned pink that applies so creamily and it’s just a pleasure to wear. It goes with every single make up look, I pair this with dramatic eye make up and my everyday neutral look. 

MAC Pink Nouveau
Gorgeous barbie-pink shade, again cool-toned and far brighter than Please Me. It really does make teeth look whiter and is wearable enough for the daytime. Such a fun lipstick shade, it suits so many skin-tones, it’s a long-loved favourite of Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj, which proves my point!

MAC Vegas Volt
Beautiful shade of coral with a hint of orange, love the colour against my skin-tone. It’s the perfect complement to peach blush and bronzer, with brilliant pigmentation. I think this shade is definitely one to look at if you have tanned or dark skin. Even though it’s so bold, I still wear it during the day, especially during the rare spells of sunshine we get in England!

MAC Impassioned
My top choice for a night out, Impassioned is an intense bright pink with a fuchsia undertone. It’s so in-your-face and I have never seen a lipstick like it! It’s uber-pigmented and looks different on a majority of skin tones, I enjoy how loud it is, and how the hint of watermelon provides a great alternative to red lipstick, which I have a love/hate relationship with.

MAC Lady Danger
I know I just said I have a love/hate relationship with red lipstick, but on the occasions I feel like wearing it, it’s got to be Lady Danger! It’s a matte red with an orange undertone, it’s bright, and it’s so timeless and bold. I love how it makes my thin lips look bigger, without me having to resort to Juvederm yet! The finish of it means it lasts all day long, with bright colours I always take my time to apply lip balm (Burts Bees), clear lip-liner (Urban Decay Ozone) and then use a lip brush for precise definition.
