Makeup Wishlist - MAC Lipsticks!

Hey All!

So, as is apparent, I am crazy about shopping for shoes, bags, jewelry, dresses and everything else under the sun (even grocery). However, my range of makeup, for some reason, is pretty limited. For example, when it comes to lipsticks, I can only pull out from my purse, either a red or a pink or, these days, a plum/wine. So, when I wanted to do a post on lipsticks, I handed the job to one of my more experienced girlfriends – the cute and chic Aditi who comes with a bagful of deliciously tempting MAC lipsticks. So let's see and drool and go shopping!

Hello ladies!!

This doesn’t happen to me daily that Rachna gives me an idea to do a guest blog for her!!

It is my first time writing a blog so please bear with me if I am not as seasoned as Rachna.

Let me introduce myself - I am Aditi and like all you people I am quite enthusiastic when it comes to fashion, gossiping,dressing and not to forget shopping!!

Recently I have been possessed with an undying love for MAC Lipsticks that gets stronger with every purchase. For all my shopping sprees, I must thank my dear hubby, Chandan who is an impressively patient shopping companion (and by the way, it is his cards that I use!).

So here are my top 9 Mac lipsticks. Below are the pictures of the shades in white light without flash.



This is a gorgeous, everyday pink-brown shade. It is cremesheen so it is moisturizing and looks so natural on the lips that you won’t feel you are wearing any lipstick. There are many MAC lipsticks in a similar shade but with different undertones - Mehr, Cosmo, Twig, Fastplay. If you consider buying this shade try on the similar ones too and then take your pick.


This is a grapefruit-pink shade that is light and very summery. The color speaks summer. It has luster and is moisturizing. Similar MAC shades - Shanghai Spice, Crosswire.


A lovely bright-red pink. It is one of my to-go lipsticks, looks great for casual wear. I have tried many MAC light pink lipsticks in a similar shade but I feel this one suits me the best; it is moisturizing and is subtly pretty.


Here on, the shades get more Bold and more Beautiful. This was one of my first MAC lipsticks and it is a bright pink shade, almost neon. I was quite scared to try this shade but now I love this!! I have been wearing it all summer. It is matte, so it wears longer. Although it is a bit dry, it doesn’t matter because the color is so pretty! Just moisturize your lips before wearing it. Similar MAC shade - Candy Yum Yum.


It took me a lot of courage to buy this one but now that I have, I love it. This too has a matte finish but is not very drying and the color stays for long. Similar orange-red MAC shades - Lady Danger, Vegas Volt, Chilli.


A bright plum matte lipstick which looks very chic on lips. This is, again, a very long wear lipstick and in fact, the color wouldn’t go even after a meal, which is great! Similar MAC shades - Show Orchid, Full Fuschia and Girl About Town.


As the name suggests, it is indeed all fired up!! Love this color and by far this is my favorite MAC fuchsia lipstick. This shade is very similar to another MAC lipstick that I had, Relentlessly Red, but its not the same. I would suggest this one to all the ladies who love fuchsia - this is the ultimate fuchsia lipstick!!


After a long list of pinks, fuchsias, etc, back to the good old classic red lipstick! This was one of my first MAC lipsticks. It's a beautiful red color that will suit every complexion. It is a limited edition lipstick. It's matte hence, long wear but not very drying. By far my favorite Red!! Similar MAC shades - Ruby Woo and Russian Red lipstick.


Finally THE COLOR FOR FALL!! A lovely berry plum shade; you might be apprehensive about this one but once you gather the courage to try it on, you will love it. This has a satin finish so it just glides over the lips and moisturizes well.
So these were my 9 MAC lipsticks! Hope the post was helpful for all you ladies.


  1. Your intro mad me chuckle because I have the same exact problem as you. I have like twenty lipsticks of almost identical shades of red and pink. I always promise myself each time I go to the store to try a different color but always leave out with my usual go to shades.

    1. Hahaha! I know what you mean..I have been trying to buy a nude or brown shade for over a year but still haven't been able to. This time though, I am definitely buying one of those!
