I am no way showing off, but since I really do not own a lot compared to other beauty bloggers, I decided it was time to share with you guys what I have in my MAC lipstick collection. I would say this is a fairly small handful and to note that I am content with such a small dose of MAC lipsticks. I have read and seen others who have almost a comparison to a MAC store in their house and how anyone can accumulate that much is crazy!
MAC lipsticks was kind of my stepping stone into the world of high-end lipsticks. I think one of my very first to own was All Fired Up (fuchsia), which I was searching for a not so bright and yet bold statement lip colour. I did not really do any research around this and rather based most of my purchases around opinions and online swatches. I did not realise after that–that soon I would form a great love for MAC lipsticks.
In the beginning, it began with some matte bold colours, which to this day is still my preferred lipstick finish. But gradually, I found myself going for more of a neutral, nude, earthy and wearable tones and trying out some other lipstick finishes, such as satin and lustre. I could almost see myself grow with these lipsticks, as I was a little bit younger with my first bold lip colour and my most recent is the matte taupe, which is more of the types of shades I gravitate and enjoy wearing.
From my collection, you can probably see the direction of where this collection will go, but I do have a great appreciation for people who have a wide variety of colours in their collection and those that simply follow one colour and own various shades from that. I try to stay true to my aesthetics and just go for colours and shades that I know I can wear for years to come, and not for just the sake of trends.
