My 5 Top MAC Favorite Summer 2014 Lipsticks

Hello dear readers! Today's post is my top 5 favourite lipsticks from MAC Cosmetics. If you know me, you know of my unspoken, dying love for lipsticks. And when it comes to lipsticks, MAC definitely takes the cake. From their highly pigmented formula to their pleasant vanilla scent, MAC lipsticks never fail to disappoint me.

Summer is a great time to shed away your shy self and embrace your boldness. Is your go-to colour mainly nudes and neutral pinks or deep plum and dark reds during the past colder months? Well get ready to think outside the box and try something new! Below I have swatches of my top 5 MAC lipsticks that are perfect for this summer.

From left to right: Sail la Vie, Show Orchid, Sounds like Noise, Impassioned, Candy Yum Yum.

1. Bright orangey-red. >> SAIL LA VIE

Unfortunately, this exact lipstick colour is from a collection (Hey, Sailor) in the summer of 2012. But this fun, bold orangey-red colour gives a little something extra when you want to reach out for your go-to red lipstick. Why not try an orangey-red this summer? You'll feel bold and confident. Watch yourself transform into this fun person all summer long!

Try these other MAC shades that are similar to Sail la Vie: NEON ORANGE or MORANGE.

2. Fuchsia. >> SHOW ORCHID

You can never go wrong with fuchsia-pink. With its iridescent fuchsia-purple sheen, Show Orchid is a gorgeous and fun colour for those of you who are like me, partial to purple lipsticks. This colour works well with every skin tone. Head over to your local MAC counter and give it a try!

3. Yellow-orange. >> SOUNDS LIKE NOISE

This bright, warm-toned orange is perfect if you're looking for a true yellow-orange lipstick. I've always find the majority of orange lipsticks are mostly red-based orange (like Sail la Vie). It is difficult for me to find a true orange colour. Once again, I'll have to apologize because this exact shade was from a MAC x Hayley Williams collaboration so it might be limited edition just like Sail la Vie. But fret not, you can try MAC's TANGERINE DREAM or SAIGON SUMMER which are very similar to Sounds like Noise:)

4. Coral. >> IMPASSIONED

If summer doesn't scream coral then I don't know what does. This MAC top-seller is famous for a reason. This bright warm-pinky coral shade is beautiful. Another universally flattering colour, everyone should own this shade in their collection.

5. Hot pink. >> CANDY YUM YUM

Everyone's favourite hot pink lipstick. It was limited edition but now it's back for good. If you don't have it, you gotta go and buy it! It is super bright and super fun. Why not step out of your comfort zone and rock this bright pink around town for a night or two? You'll be hooked and before you know it, Candy Yum Yum will be your staple, to-go lipstick this summer ;)

So here are my top 5 MAC lipsticks that I think are perfect to give it a try this summer. Look out for my next post. I hope you enjoy my recommendations :) Feel free to leave me feedbacks or what you'd like to see next on my blog. Thank you so much for reading!

Until next time,
