Duty Free Shopping is extremely dangerous, or just being in a place with so many different beauty and designer brands. One place that I knew that my bank balance would not like was MAC. Before I went on holiday, I wrote a list of lipsticks that I wanted to add my my lipstick collection - I did indeed pick up most of them but in my defense, it is cheaper due to the currency conversion. I picked up all these in Hong Kong Airport, but as you know I was in South Korea too - if I had time in South Korea ICN Airport, I would of went wild. I picked up Diva, Ruby Woo, Lady Danger, Chili, Mocha, Taupe, Velvet Teddy and Whirl lip pencil.
Diva is in a matte formula, I bought this for my friend as a gift and she keeps snapchatting me, telling me how much she loves it - I am very easily persuaded, so hello Diva. I feel like Ruby Woo and Lady Danger are signature red shades that a lot of people own. Lady Danger leans towards the orange side whereas Ruby Woo has a pink undertone - it also was a little more difficult to swatch Ruby Woo on my arm but they are both beautiful and both matte shades. Chili was the first on my list, my co-worker always wears this and I do have NYX's Sierra but it had to be done. Chili is a burnt orangey red and is also in a matte formula.
I am a nude girl most days so Mocha and Taupe was in the basket. Mocha is in a satin finish and seems like a 'your lips but better' colour. I have worn Taupe and it turns into a brown nude with dark red undertones on me - I have quite pigmented lips so it might be a shade that looks different on everyone. The last lipstick is Velvet Teddy - my perfect everyday nude shade - the one I have which I bought last year is on it's last legs and a back up was needed. And lastly Whirl lip liner - I'm still debating right now if I should of picked up the lipstick version instead of the pencil - I feel like the lipstick would be less drying but the liner would be useful to change the tone of other lipsticks.
I can always buy Whirl later.
There's not much to else to say except that I really wanted these shades. These are 100% shades that I will be using. I have put myself on a ban so I've been avoiding going to Boots, Superdrug and online browsing to a certain limit. If you have any favourite MAC lipsticks and liners let me know so I can check it out - if you have a post leave it down below!.
Until next time!
