MAC Lipstick Haul

This time last year I had just 2 MAC lipsticks in my collection and I desperately needed wanted more. Fast forward a year and I now have 8 in my collection, with the newest 3 making their blog debut today. I'm having a moment with MAC and find myself constantly browsing blogs for lipstick reviews and finding swatches on Pinterest. There's just something oh so special about MAC lipsticks that no other brand can compete with. Anyway, let me show you the newest shades in my collection...

Girl About Town
Amplified Creme
I'd actually picked this up a month or so ago when I went to the Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) at the York Designer Outlet. They had a few lipsticks for £10 as opposed to the usual £15.50 and this one in particular stood out to me as I'd heard a lot of people raving about how amazing it is. To be honest I'm still undecided as to whether or not this suits me. I think it's just because of how amazingly bright and pigmented it is, maybe a bright lip is just something I need to get used to.

Costa Chic
A lipstick I've seen and read so much about! It seems to be THE coral lipstick to have in your collection and I've been lusting over it for quite some time. Given that I don't own any other Frost finishes, I was slightly scared I was gonna have a 90's glitter lip going on. But I was wrong, Costa Chic is a stunning bold, coral that I think will suit most skintones.

Another formula that I didn't own in my collection. Brave is a shade I've heard so much about recently, with the whole Kylie Jenner lip trend kicking around. I was stood for ages trying to decide between this and Velvet Teddy, but given that I suffer from really dry lips I thought the Matte finish of Velvet Teddy might not sit right. I'm so glad I chose Brave, it's the perfect dark pink nude that has a slightly matte finish without being drying like a matte. I know I'm gonna get a lot of wear out of this one.

Keep your eyes peeled for full reviews on all 3 of these in the near future...
What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
