♡MAC Lipstick Reviews♡

Sorry again for being a bit MIA, my schedule has been pretty busy but I have now finished uni for the year (Woo! Still can't believe my first year is over!) and so I should have a bit more time on my hands, which means, fingers crossed, my posts will become a bit more regular.

It was my birthday at the beginning of October and two presents that I received, that I had been wanting for a long time, were MAC lipsticks. I have always wanted a bullet to call my own and finally that dream became a reality! For ages I had been trying to limit it down to the two that I wanted the most after lots of research - of course there are still many other colours that I am wanting.

I first decided to pick a shade that I can wear everyday if I want, one that is more natural. This is where Creme in Your Coffee comes in.
It is just a few shades darker than neutral which means it is very natural looking on the lip; it's a beautiful, warm brown with a slight mauve undertone. The finish is Cremesheen and the pigmentation is amazing - the creamy texture of the lipstick lives up to the name of the colour!  Since it is Cremesheen, it melts in extreme hot weather so I would not recommend carrying it with you in warmer weather, this aside, it doesn't bleed on the lips.It feels very comfortable and is definitely hydrating. Due to the creamy formula it doesn't always last long on the lips, particularly if you are drinking from a water bottle, but does last 3-4 hours and glides on when you apply.

When deciding on the other lipstick I wanted a unique shade that I could wear on nights out, something a bit more special that would stand out so I decided on Up the Amp!
The colour is described on the MAC website as a "lavender violet", which I believe is a great way to describe it. It is violet in colour as it is a blue-toned purple and it has a hint of lavender that lightens it up and brings a milkiness to the color. The colour really does look different on different skin colours as well, as this shade looks slightly different on all of my friends.
This shade is one of the Amplified formulas which means it is very pigmented and glides on smooth, creamy and the colour is opaque. It is great at keeping lips feeling soft and moisturised. Personally it is one of my favourite MAC colours and lasts a whole night out on the lips without needing to reapply.
Both lipsticks have MAC's signature vanilla scent, which is absolutely delicious!
