MAC Lipstick Haul Including Swatches

MAC Lipstick Haul Including Swatches: Craving, Brick O La, Vegas Volt and Velvet Teddy

Are you a fan of MAC Lipsticks??? Of course you are! I’ll keep this post short because we all know that MAC lipsticks are amazing. For me, I always look at the images of the different MAC lipstick shade than reading a whole review about it!

I’m not a big spender, so this is a massive haul for me! However, as I recently got a job, I thought I’d treat myself to something special. Nevertheless, I won a voucher on U-Wantit – an auction based platform, which meant that I basically got some of these lipsticks for free. Woooo! Seriously, you guys need to check out U-Wantit!

MAC Lipstick Haul Including Swatches: Craving, Brick O La, Vegas Volt and Velvet Teddy

Before this haul, I had five MAC lipsticks: All Fired Up!, Brave, Bombshell, Viva Glam – Nicki and MAC Red. Most of my lipsticks are quite light and pink, so I though I’d go for a couple of darker shades this time. After loads of contemplating and looking at swatches for possibly every single MAC lipstick shade, I ended up choosing Craving, Brick O La, Vegas Volt and the ever so popular Velvet Teddy!

I’ll leave you with some pictures of lipstick swatches before going into details about these!

MAC Lipstick Haul Including Swatches: Velvet Teddy

What I found quite funny is that three of these lipsticks are from the Amplified Creme Range, which was totally unintentional, but I’m quite pleased with the shades and finish. I guess you already figured out which one isn’t Amplified Creme. Yep, you got it right, Velvet Teddy has a Matte finish.

When I first saw Velvet Teddy, I thought it was too pale for me, but after trying it on, I must admit that I’m in love and I can totally understand why everyone loves it so much! I can also see myself wearing Craving and Brick O La a lot because they match up with natural lip tone, just a little shinier and more colourful! However, I’m not too keen on Vegas Volt as it looks a little too “neon” for an everyday look, but I think it’ll look really cool in the summer and on pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

So I hope you liked this haul post! Let me know which MAC lipstick is your favourite!

    I really love the Brick O LA shade. I lost my Dior lipstick literally the week I bought it, and it was very similar to this shade. I get paid tomorrow. Think it might be time for a new lipstick… ๐Ÿ™‚

      I'm so happy with Brick O La! Shame that you lost the Dior lipstick, I'd get so sad if I lost one of my favourite lisptick! x

      Agreed! You can wear it for any occasion! Vegas Volt is cool, but it's a bit too bright. ๐Ÿ˜› x

    Craving is my favourite of the four but they all look lovely on you! I sold my Vegas Volt because I didn't wear it enough but the colour is really gorgeous and looks wonderful in the summer – I'm sure you'll reach for it more then ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      Thanks! I think the same of Vegas Volt. It's a nice and bright shade, but it's a little "too bright" but it would definitely look nice in the summer! x

    You picked up some gorgeous shades but Craving is probably my favourite of them all, will definitely have to swatch it in store soon x

    Craving looks beautiful and I can see it suiting your skin tone really well. I have been wanting to buy Velvet Teddy for a while now but never find it in stock. Such a pretty shade. x
