Autumn Lipstick Swatches & Reviews

Makeup

It should come as no surprise that all the lipsticks featured in this post are MAC. I think most of their products are great, and my makeup bag is a living proof of that. I will be test the waters and try other popular beauty brands I have not had the privilege of trying like Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury, NARS and the rest.

With the weather getting colder, and the nights getting longer, this is a perfect time to introduce some dark tones to your makeup. I use a change in season as an excuse to shop who doesn’t, so I have gone all out to update my makeup bag and its contents. Here are the MAC lipsticks in my collection for Autumn:

Ruby Woo

Ruby Woo Swatch

This is one of my favourite lipstick shades. It is a perfect shade of red, great for a night out or day time, and it looks amazing on me, and every other lip I have seen wearing it. It shines beautifully in pictures, so you will usually catch me photographed, wearing this amazing lipstick. It is also long-lasting, stays on for hours, I can’t fault this lipstick.

Ruby Woo

I think every woman should have a Ruby Woo lipstick. It is not the best-selling lipstick for no reason.

Pink Nouveau

MAC Pink Nouveau

This bright Barbie pink lipstick is the least favourite of all my MAC lipsticks. I don’t like the shade on me, not sure what I was thinking when I bought it. It has a satin finish, and it is too young, too girly.

Pink Nouveau

All I will say is, try this lipstick or any other lipstick on your lips BEFORE you buy. The swatches do not give you a good idea of how it would look like on your lips. Your lips and your skin are very different, trust me, I learnt the hard way. Β I wish I could return it, but since I can’t, it will just remain one of those lipsticks that hardly get used.

MAC Film Noir

Film Noir

This Film Noir lipstick is another case of me not knowing what I was thinking when I bought it. Β I wanted a dark/chocolate shade for the autumn/winter months, and I thought this would look good on my lips but I was so wrong. It looked amazing when I swatched it on my arm, by when I tried it on at home, I knew I had made a big fat mistake.

MAC Film Noir

This satin Film Noir is way too dark (another satin lipstick I don’t like, think I am a matte kind of girl), it doesn’t stay on well, even after using a lip primer and after blotting. I also found it quite patchy, not sure what I would do with this, the search of the perfect dark lipstick continues…….

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus

Viva Glam Swatch

This Viva Glam Miley Cyrus shade is my favourite lipstick at the moment. At first, I wasn’t too sure about it, but the more I used it, the deeper I fell in love with it. It has a matter finish but looks glossy, which I love, I also the hot pink colour, perfect for day and night, and it is so long-lasting.

Viva Glam 1

I get loads of compliments when I wear this lipstick .I love it.

MAC Lipsticks

I have realised I prefer lipsticks with a matte finish so I will be getting more of these type of lipsticks.

Have you tried any of these lipsticks before? What are your thoughts? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

  1. I love the lipsticks. They are great selections. I am in love with the viva glam and the ruby woo. I want them lol

  2. I don’t think I can pull off a red lipstick sadly, but I do agree I prefer Matte finish Mac lipsticks. I know you can trade in your empty Mac packaging (eyeshadows/lipsticks etc) and this includes if there’s one which you don’t get on with. I believe 5 gets you a new lipstick maybe it’s worth doing that with the ones you don’t like? x
