3-in-1 lipstick review: Maybelline, MAC, Bourjois

3-in-1 lipstick review: Maybelline, MAC, Bourjois

When you buy 3 lipsticks from different brand, but they all fit the same look and feel, what do you do? Yes, you lump them together into one review. I did pick all of these up around the same time though, but just hadn’t gotten around to the review just yet. I bought these in London last year, but since the Maybelline and Bourjois lipsticks only made their way into our drugstores here fairly recently, I decided this was the best time to post.

I currently own 20 MAC lipsticks. That is more than enough and means I have a little bit of everything. Since I like where my MAC lipstick collection now stands, I thought it was time for me to show you how all of these shades look on. This means that without further ado, I present to you: my MAC lipstick swatch video. Please watch, my lips will be very very thankful ;-).

MAC lipsticks: Relentlessy Red, Captive, Rebel, Darkside

If there is one brand whose lipstick I love it would be MAC. I remember the days when everyone was raving about their favorite colors and you weren’t part of the beauty community if 50% of your make up collection wasn’t MAC. Boy, how times have changed. But MAC lipsticks are still getting a lot of love and I decided to expand my MAC lipstick collection a little bit further, with a few shades that I think are perfect for fall. Meet my new babies.

Back in the day, when I first found the online beauty community and started this blog, almost 6 years ago, THE brand everyone raved about was MAC. So when I first started my own make up endeavor back in 2008/2009, MAC was the first make up brand I truly decided to invest in. Hence the extensiveness of my MAC make up collection being quite vast. I thought I’d show you all the MAC bits I have.

A few weeks ago I showed you my updated MAC palette. I chose to purchase a new palette and a few additional shadows. I already showed you the palette, but not the shadows. So that’s what we will be doing today. I went with 4 shades that would go well with the rest of the palette. Meet Honey Lust, Corduroy, Embark and Beauty Marked.

MAC lip review: Syrup, Brave, Chili, Staunchly Stylish, Burgundy

MAC lipsticks and lip liners are some of the most revered make up products out there. After a bit of a lull concerning all things MAC in the land of beauty, the brand received a spark of attention after Kylie Jenner fessed up loving MAC’s Faux lipstick. It unleashed a run on the now infamous MAC lipstick and if anything, it certainly sparked my interest again. I went and decided I needed to discover some more MAC lipsticks. I had a great start when I found the fabulous combination of MAC’s matte lipstick in Mehr paired with Soar lip pencil. That tasted like more, so I went and purchased some new MAC lipsticks and lip liners to try out.
