Mini MAC Haul

Taupe // Brave // Pink Plaid


Do you ever just go into a store that you really shouldn't be splurging in, due to the outrageous prices, and just say "f*** it" and buy too much? Because same. That was exactly the scenario when I decided to spend $51 on lipstick, for only three mind you, in one go. Despite that dropping of cash, I am very pleased with my purchases. Whenever I'm at MAC I have the tendency to gravitate and purchase the bolder colors; however this time around I stuck to more subtle and nude tones, good for everyday use. Due to that, I cannot regret this mini haul.

(from left to right)
Taupe (matte)
Of the three, this is clearly the darkest one. Nonetheless it is still a nice brown-ish deep nude to wear any day. With it being a matte finish, this lipstick lasts for hours on end. You really can't go wrong with this one. Just a fyi, lately many MAC stores have been out of Velvet Teddy (thanks, Jenners); however Taupe is a similar alternative.

Brave (satin)
Brave is one of those lipsticks you hear everyone talking about, and I can completely understand why. It is a beautiful shade with a nourishing finish due to it being a satin. The longevity on this one is also long, but not quite like a matte finish. Out of the three purchased, this is the one I tend to go for day-to-day because it honestly complements any look!

Pink Plaid (matte)
Contrasting Brave, I'd say this is a lesser known MAC shade. When I found this, though, I was jumping for joy! In my lipstick collection I really only have about two true pinks, but even then they're relatively dark, so when I found this oh so pretty pink, I knew I had to buy it. In the swatch above it shows as much darker than what it actually it. Pink Plaid is a natural-medium and somewhat vibrant pink. Again, this matte finish is stunning and lasts for hours. If you're looking for a more muted and subtle pink, this is the lipstick for you!

So far I've gotten a great deal of use out of each of these. No doubt these beauts will snag a few spots in my "favorites list;" especially as the warmer months approach and I retire the bold lip. If you're looking for shades remotely like these, I highly recommend the gorgeous lippies above! These are absolutely perfect for all year round and will simply not disappoint. Stay tuned for future YouTube videos and posts where I'm sporting any one of these.

Have you added any lipsticks to your collection? Do you like MAC lipsticks?

  13. Beautiful colours! I tend to go for bolder colours when I shop for MAC lipsticks too, but lately I've been gravitating towards nude eyes and lips a lot. I can't decide if I like Brave or Pink Plaid better! They are both stunning, and I'm really enjoying pink-toned nudes right now!
