MAC Matte Collection: Whirl & Honeylove

Follow

It seems like almost every girl has a MAC lippy knocking about in their makeup bags, and I am not an exception.
I have two things I usually look for in a lipstick: nude tones and matte finish, so imagine my excitement when MAC announced the release of their Matte Collection earlier this summer.
Not only were a few familiar shades in there but new shades too, like Whirl & Stone (Stone is next to buy on my wishlist) which are re-inventions of the coveted lip-liner shades.

It's basically a whole heap of lipstick happiness that's happening.

The two that I have picked up are Whirl and Honeylove - both are nude shades which makes them perfect for me to wear every day! Whirl is such an interesting colour and I've seen it look so different on different people. It's described as 'Dirty Rose' but I've got olive-based warm-toned skin and on me Whirl is a dusty rose shade but has more deeper brown tones to it also. 
It's such a flattering shade, and I'm sure you'll see me wearing it a lot this autumn on my Instagram.

Honeylove is my bae of a lipstick. The go-to. The one that's always lurking in my handbag. It's described as 'Light Beige Toned with Rose' and on my warmer toned skin it's the perfect daily nude. It's definitely got a pink hint to it, but if you're medium/warm toned then it might work really well for you too! I prefer this to paler or pinker nudes and I find it lasts quite a while on my lips.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick? Did you buy any of the Matte Collection?
Let me know! xx

P.S Sorry I was a naughty blogger and used my lipstick before taking photos... Oops!

  1. Love your post hunni & Beautiful feature picture!✨��✨. I've been trying to get my hands on Stone as well, but it is forever sold out. I luv matte lipsticks, think 80% of my lippies are matte. I managed to pick up Whirl and Instigator, absolutely adore them both.x
