Spring Into Summer: MAC Lipsticks




The transition from drizzly spring into a (hopefully) warmer summer is always an exciting and inspiring time. Here in England, the weather in summer months is always predictably unpredictable: torrential rain one day and then a week-long heatwave the next. Although, that is one of the things I love about Britain - the wide range of weathers and temperatures we receive, meaning we get to experience everything in small, sweet doses.

Lipsticks by MAC are perfect shades to wear during the season switch - due to their high quality, long lasting formula. In fact, MAC lipsticks are always fun to wear during any time of the year! Here are four of them, which are great for any situation, any weather, during spring into summer.

BRAVE | SATIN FINISH


a rosy brown.

Brave is the classic 'my lips, but better' shade that suits everybody and every look. The satin finish means it isn't as drying as a matte, but isn't sticky such as a cremesheen.

VELVET TEDDY | MATTE FINISH


a deep brown beige. 

Velvet Teddy is the cult lipstick that everyone has been raving about. If you want to relive the '90s trend, this wearable brown nude is the lipstick to buy.


MEHR | MATTE FINISH


a plum brown with rosy undertones.

Mehr is the lipstick to go for if you want to be a bit more daring, yet stay in the neutral colour palette. The plum undertones make it a lipstick that stands out in your collection.

KINDA SEXY | MATTE FINISH


a peach nude.

Kinda Sexy is kinda sexy. It is lighter than the aforementioned shades, and the matte peach colour makes it a staple for summer 2016.


What lipstick formulas are your favourite?

  5. I am not that obsessed with matte finishes as I find that it dries out my lips so easily! I haven't seen brave in person yet but this is definitely gonna be added to my list :)
