If you read my blog last week, you’ll already know how much I love MAC lipsticks! The vast range of shades and finishes available is just impressive and you’re definitely bound to find that perfect shade you’ve been looking for. Last week I spoke about my MAC Neutral shades and today I’ll be letting you know all about my collection of MAC bright shades.
If you want to read about my thoughts on the MAC lipsticks packaging and pricing just take a look at my previous MAC lipsticks article.
Bright shades are amazing! Whatever your skin tone, you will find one that’s right for you. Personally I love these most in the Summer, particularly for an event when you really want your make up to make a statement.
I’ve got 6 Bright MAC Lipsticks – 3 are bright pinks, the other 3 are deeper pink and orange based.
My bright pink MAC lipsticks:
From left to right:
Pink Pearl Pop (Cremesheen Finish): A beautiful shimmery pink lipstick. As it’s a cremesheen formula it’s not as intense as the others so is a great choice if you want to go for a bright colour that’s not too over the top.
Saint Germain (Amplified Finish): A super bright blue-toned barbie pink lipstick that’s not for the faint hearted! This one is definitely shocking but that should not put you off as it can look great if worn well. It might be best to avoid if you have very pale skin as it could make you look washed out. If this is too bright for you and you want to tone it down a little, just mix with another lipstick, such as MAC Myth which is a very nude shade.
Snob (Satin Finish): A more wearable bright pink lipstick that’s one of my favourites. This is also a blue-toned pink lipstick, however when compared to Saint Germain, it is a lot more toned down as it is not as bright and has a very slight hint of purple in it. Might be worth trying this out if you are new to blue-toned pink lipsticks. This is a satin formula so it is slightly drying but lasts longer than a creemsheen but not as intense in colour as an amplified formula.
The other 3 Bright MAC Lipsticks are:
Girl About Town (Amplified Finish): An intense bright berry pink shade. This looks just gorgeous on most skin tones. It’s an amplified formula so it’s super intense and highly pigmented.
Impassioned (Amplified Finish): A bright orange-toned pink that looks incredible on both pale and tanned skin. Beautiful colour that’s rich, creamy and intense.
Morange (Amplified Finish): Orange lipstick rocks! This is my ultimate favourite bright lipstick. Super intense and creamy, this bright orange is so striking. Looks fantastic on all skin tones and definitely makes an impression. Love this.
