My lipstick collection swatches MAC, Rimmel...

I have never really been huge on wearing lipstick, I tend to be more of a tinted lip balm/tint kinda girl however over the past few years I seem to have accumulated lipsticks and have started wearing them more.
So I thought I'd share my little collection which surprise surprise consists mainly of MAC...

 I tried to get pictures that show the truest colours but gosh that's not easy with the lighting in my room but this should give you an idea...
MAC FAUX TWIG HOT GOSSIP PETALS AND PEACOCK
 I pretty much honestly love all of them except for the two M&S one's which aren't as pigmented and come off easily but to say they cost £3.25 I'm not surprised. My most worn is MAC'S Hot gossip which I sometimes mix with faux.
Some are way too pale for me for instance the MAC viva glam gaga but I mix it with the more brighter colours to get a shade that's perfect! Does anyone else mix lipsticks? What's your favourite colour?

  4. Mixing lipsticks is a great idea, creates a unique shade. I love the look of Mac Twig, might have a look at that one!

  16. I haven't been investing as much of my funds into make up as I'd like these days so I haven't been too up to date. I must say that I am in LOVE with the Viva Glam Gaga! AMAZING!
