12 MAC Lippies! Call it a Haul, shall we?

I don't own much lipsticks really, as I don't wear them on a daily basis - just occasionally and no matter how tempting they might seem, I can't justify spending money on something I hardly will ever use. Fair enough eh?

I just had a few drug store lipsticks till now and Jubilee from MAC is all I relied on. It's a gorgeous Lustre finish nude pink-brown and If you haven't got it yet, I urge you to check it out! 

The lack of a decent lip collection did annoy me from time to time though, as my make up kit seemed incomplete without these key products. Until of course the amazing Wayne from GossMakeupArtist put up a palette of 12 MAC lipsticks in a Make Up For Ever case for sale. I would not have jumped on to purchasing this until I saw the ridiculous price it was up for and I thought to myself, 'It can't get any cheaper than this!'. And the rest as they say, is pay pal account history.



This palette is like my box of candy as when I open it, the collective vanilla-like smell from all the MAC Lipsticks makes me reminiscent of that.

And ain't the shades to die for? This is actually how I would have custom made my lip palette in the first place ranging from the lightest to the darkest. 



Now for some swatches. Please excuse that hairy hand, it's not mine by the way! Don't you just love how Wayne has hand picked each shade so carefully to make sure that no colour family is left out. Most of the finishes seem like Lustre and Satin to me. They don't come with any shade names unfortunately, help me out if you spot any will you?



We have a gorgeous bright coral, a red, a hot pink and a lilac. The coral and the red here are beyond stunning ladies. I tried this on my sister and the Cheryl Cole bright lip really suited her! All you need to brighten up the face.


Coming to my favourites, we have some very pretty mid tone browns and pinks here. The second shade, which is a nude pinky-lilac is by far my favourite from the palette. 


How would we even survive without our nudes? Ranging from concealer like nudes to much more wearable nudes, we have it all here. I like to mix and match to achieve the perfect nude lip. Like using the second shade only on its own would seriously make me look dead - not pretty!


Not only do I adore the shades, I am loving the organised palette form too, its great for travelling or makeovers. The only con to it would be that I can't carry it with me daily for touch ups but I can allow that as long as the sleek palette makes me feel like a pro!

Wayne from Gross-Make Up Artist really lives by his confessed name...

I can't believe you would choose to apply on your lips what clearly looks like used lipsticks. 12 colors of lipsticks is great indeed but did you pause to think about where these lipsticks were coming from?

Gross! definitely

@JC - Its goss makeup artist by the way LOL not gross! and these lipsticks were stated as 'brand new' so why would I think before buying them? Clearly I took the picture after using them for a while, which is why it looks used.
