Top 5: Lipsticks

So,last week I showed you my Top 5 MAC eyeshadows, this week it's going to be Lipsticks. Choosing only 5 lipsticks was a lot tougher than with the eyeshadow as i a) have a lot more MAC lipsticks than shadows and b) I am more of a lipstick person, so I accentuate my lips more often than my eyes, so here you go:

Ruby Woo: Replaced my former favourite red - Russian Red - as it is much more vibrant in my book, stays until eternity and I think it's more fun to wear, since it is brighter. However, it is veeery matte so it might not be everyone's cup of tea but for me it is my favourite, out of all, hands down!

Girl about town: Perfect classic pink, always fun to wear! I would say this color suits all skintones and haircolors. It is bright, however not too bright so I think one can even wear it during daytime, best pink there is in my book.

Pink Nouveau: This is a very special color. It is like a chalky, matte (or slightly satin), Barbie Pink. Definitely a showstopper. One has to be confident to wear this but I just love it. I think as a brunette it is not so much "in your face" if u know what I mean!? Looks hot with simple black eyeliner and mascara.

Viva Glam V: My favourite daytime Lipstick. It is a nice, subtle but still unique color. It is slightly pink, like a nude pink? If that makes sense?! Dunno, I just love it and I've been getting compliments for it all along plus some money from my purchase goes to the MAC Aids fund. Always good to help when splurging on something right ;-)

Fresh Brew: Finally. At first I had a love-hate relationship with this one. I was out for a nude color that would suit me as I do not really like to wear my Creme d'Nude often ( too light shade) and the lady at the MAC counter talked me into it. I think with this lipstick, it is, you really have to wear smokey eyes, then it looks fabulous. Worn on itself it makes you look like you're sick. But worn with heavy eyemake up this one looks amazing!

So what are your favourite Lipsticks from MAC?
Love, V.
