MAC - COOK MAC SHOP MAC Lipsticks Review

Leave a Comment

Hey all,
In the past couple of weeks I have been hearing a lot of great things about the new MAC collection 'Cook MAC, Shop MAC' , so I thought I would buy a couple of the lipsticks that took my fancy. I have a bit of a Love/Hate relationship with MAC you see, and I get a bit annoyed when they repackage products from other collections and rebrand them, selling them as new. This kinda puts me off buying everything MAC. However, in my eyes they have redeemed themselves with the current collection . As a massive fan of gorgeous, bright colours I was instantly drawn to 'Watch Me Simmer' which is a bright pink/orange coral lipstick which is one of 'Amplified' formulations meaning is highly pigmented. I can't wait to wear it and think it is a great colour from spring going into summer. 

 The next colour I decided on was 'Quick Sizzle', which is hot pink 'Matte' shade. I was mainly drawn to this as I am a BIG fan of matte lippies, so when I saw it was bright and a matte I just HAD to get it. As you can see, the colour payoff is insane and just right up my street. When I wear 'Quick Sizzle' I will definitely put my trusty Cherry Chapstick on first as I find all matte's dry my lips out. I would buy from this collection again, and know online nearly all of it is sold out. So grab it while you can!!


Whilst I was in the MAC shop I thought I would buy the Nicki Minaj Viva Glam lippie for the MAC Aids Fund where ALL of the proceeds for to the charity. I was a bit dubious as I thought it would show up fairly pale on my lips, but I was pleasantly surprised how vibrant it was when applied. It is one of their 'Satin' formulations. It is semi-matte so if you have dry lips, it wouldn't dry them out as much as matte would. When I wore it I found it stayed on for absolutely ages even after drinking and eating and would definitely recommend it. 
The fourth purchase of the day was 'Love Forever which is a Pro Longwear lippie. I haven't bought one before so am looking forward to testing it out as I was drawn to the colour straight away, and I fully admit that when it comes to lipstick- I'm a bit lazy at reapplying so anything that will make life easier is fine by me!

Also, I just want to add that ALL of the lipsticks smells so lovely with that trademark Mac scent!
Have you tried any of the lipsticks above? If so, let me know what you think
Thanks for reading,
