Hello gorgeous! I am back! 

I am making my whole month of September a lippy one. Everything will be all about our lips and keeping it healthy and beautiful. Also, I will be sharing to you my lipstick collection and my favorites.

So to kick off September, I am sharing some of my favorite MAC lipstick and their swatches so just you would have an idea on how the color would look. 

MAC Cosmetics or was called Makeup Artist Cosmetics, was founded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by Frank Toskan Angelo in 1984. The company's product were initially specifically designed fro professional makeup artist but are now sold to consumers worldwide. It is now one of the most coveted and most collected makeup of all times.

Here are my lovely lippies...

Obviously, I love lipsticks! hehe! And MAC is one of the makers of some of my favorite ones.

Chatterbox is an Amplified Creme lipstick. This formula gives off a vivid burst of color, flawless finish and very moisturizing. Chatterbox is described as a bright red-pink in color. Being it in an amplified creme formula, the lipstick provided an intense color and opaque coverage upon first application. It easily glides on the lips and gives a smooth, glossy finish. This is one of my favorite finishes of MAC lipstick.

Candy YumYum is a fun, lovely neon pink matte lipstick. MAC is known for their matte lipstick, not only for their lovely colors, but also for their staying power. But, like all matte lipstick, this finish tends to dry lips. So, the trick for this type of lipstick to work, one must apply lip balm before the lipstick is applied. FYI: This is one of Kelly Osbourne's favorite lipstick.

Lovelorn is an emotive pink with blue undertones. It has a lustre finish. This finish is more sheer and very smooth to lips and very moisturizing. It gives some glossy texture as well, but might need retouching for some time. Their staying power is not that great. However, I so adore this color, it is the same color of my lips but of way better texture. This is very nice everyday lipstick. I soooo love it!

Another lipstick with lustre finish is Lustering. It is an outspoken pink, darker than lovelorn. This is also one of my favorites. I love the finish, love the color too!

Please me is a muted-rosy-tinted pink lipstick with a matte finish. You'll get the exact color pay-off you see in the tube. Very lovely lipstick. Even though it is in matte finish, it is not drying at all. This is highly pigmented and longer-lasting, making it a lippy staple in my bag.

This lipstick is my latest purchase at MAC. It is a matte cool red lipstick from their Riri Collection. I have been wanting to get one of this since the day they got released, however, it was immediately sold out. Good thing that they released another set of it and it was worth the wait. This lipstick even has Rihanna's signature (see above pic). I so love this lipstick--makes me feel bold and confident! However, I suggest use of lipliner for a cleaner and smoother edge. This is my go-to party lipstick.

Angel, oh my! This is a soft pink color in frost finish. A lot adores this lipstick and I totally understand why. It has some iridescent to it making it appear glossy and/or shiny, very moisturizing, glides perfectly on lips and the color is to die for. No wonder it is one of Kim Kardashian's favorite lipstick. I love to wear this lipstick when wearing smokey eyes. Love! Love! Love!

Lastly, but definitely not the least, is Viva Glam Nicki in satin finish. It is a bright pink with yellow undertones. This is a limited edition, with Nicki Minaj, a hip-hop diva, joining forces with MAC in helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV and Aids. Every cent paid for lipstick with red-color border in the case goes to the said cause. Amazing isn't it?! Us helping while staying beautiful. I do believe in this cause, and for sure this will not be my last Viva Glam lipstick.

Obviously, I love pink lipstick. From my choice of lipstick from above, most came in pink color. And, I did not notice that until I was editing these pics for posting, lol! Oh well, that is good to know, so I would know which color to explore more in the future.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog... as always, this is sealed with a kiss! mwahhh! 
Stay beautiful!

I think with out us knowing we tend to lean towards one color more than others. I went and tried to get something with a little more color, like something that had more pink in it, and ended once again with a neutral color lol. I really want to try a red but I feel like its to much for me. I have to actually go one day and try it :)

I like how you showed how they look on you.

Thank you Carmen! I appreciate you taking time to read my blog.

And yep! I tend to buy the shades that I really like especially if it is pricey, hehe! I guess I like the pink ones, hehe!

You should try red! Go for reds that would go with your skin tone. Warm for warm, cool for cool. :)
