Spring Cleaning swatch time. Here are some random MAC Lipsticks that I aqcuired a long time ago and never posted (thank you, Back 2 MAC!)
Oh, how I love MAC lipsticks! They come in a million beautiful colours and finishes, the formulations are always great, and I feel awesome whenever I am wearing one of them!
MAC BLACK KNIGHT AND LADY DANGER
DAMN, Lady Danger is awesome! It is this bright orange-ish retro-yet-modern looking red. It took me forever to get this one but I see now why it gets raved about on blogs left and right. Black Knight is alright as far as black lipsticks go; however, it is a bit sheer and slippery as it is a Satin finish. It would be best to wear it over a lip pencil of some sort.
MAC MODESTY, ROCKER, and SAIGON SUMMER
|From left to right: Modesty, Rocker, and Saigon Summer.|
I picked out Modesty and Saigon Summer so I could wear some lipstick to work, which I don't often do. Modesty is, well, modest enough for work but I feel it is not QUITE right on me for some reason. It is passable and I wear it, but I feel like I could have picked something more flattering (I am really bad at picking out neutral lipsticks that play well with my skintone.) Saigon Summer is a nice peachy orange that, once again, looks a bit off on me. It looks nice with some coloured gloss over it but that renders it too fussy for work. I shall be cracking it out for some spring looks soon! Rocker is an awesome berry shade with sparkle that I wear to go out all the time.

MAC RIRI WOO AND NIGHTMOTH LIP PENCIL
Dear MAC Cosmetics,
Your lipsticks are awesome. Stop naming them so irritatingly (See: Candy Yum Yum, RiRi Woo.)
Anyway, Riri Woo, which sounds like nails down a chalkboard when I say it out loud, is SUPER SUPER DRY. DO NOT WEAR THIS IF YOU HAVE DRY LIPS. It is a Retro Matte finish and WOW it is dry. However, it looks delightfully retro and matte when you have it on and is perfect for pin-up makeup.
ALL HAIL NIGHTMOTH LIP PENCIL
I was never much of a lip pencil person but got tempted in to getting Nightmoth after seeing it on blogs. OH MY STARS, I am in LOVE with it!!! It is so edgy and chic. I never would have worn a lip pencil by itself before but I wear this all the time! If you goth about, this is an excellent thing to have around for clubbing because it is so long-wearing and looks awesome with a wide variety of eye makeup.
What is your favourite MAC lipstick? Do you like any of their pencils?
