They need love too : M.A.C's understated lipsticks

These particular lipsticks are ones that i find myself buying over and over again. I have to keep them stoked in my kit as well as my personal stash . Yet i find i don't hear to much about them . I recommended two of them to a friend and she had never even heard of them . They are as follows:

(please excuse the not so great swatches , 
my camera wouldn't pick up the color or names right when i did it on my wrist)

Patisserie is a luster neutral pink nude with a peach undertone . Has no shimmer and finishes to me like a gloss . It is the perfect everyday lipstick . Especially for the girl on the go who can stop to check her lip color . I can put this on with out even needing a mirror . Complaments all skin tones . 

Then we have Faux a great muted mauve pink in a satin finish . Again great on all skin tones , tho the color comes accross different on each type . Fair skin its a great dusty pink , mid to dark its more of a brighter (almost) pale pink .  The versatility of this lipstick is why its a must have in my kit . 

Hot Tahiti is hands down my favorite mac lipstick . This is a fairly recent find for me (about a year) . I have repurchased this lipstick 3 times . Granted the third time was for my kit , but still within a year to pick up the same lipstick three times is saying something . This color is amazing on every one . A reddish coral with a glaze finish. Goes on super sheer yet is extremely build-able . As it wears down it leaves your lips super moisturized and with a gorges bitten look to them that is all the rage this season . It gets better , this lipstick is very grab and go friendly , meaning Its perfect for the girl on the move how doesn't always have a mirror handy . Added bonus its not a nude/neutral lipstick .

Odyssey is a stunning plum  . Unfortunately the swatch above dose not due this lipstick justice . I highly recommend heading to your nearest M.A.C and checking this one out in person . This is a frost finish but to me has no visible shimmer . What is dose have is almost like an opal affect . Reflecting a blue/pink at some points . It is a very unique color that looks the most flattering i think on mid-dark skin tones . 

Last but not least is Polished Up . This foxy brown is a luster , much like Patisserie this lippie has no shimmer and finishes like a gloss . I love this in the fall , it is perfect to transition from summer brights to a darker vampy winter look.  I would also recommend this as an alternative to patisserie if you are dark skin tone . It will deliver the same versatility in a shade to match.  

I hope you found this helpful . Be sure to let me know what your go to lip colors are in a comment or if you have a post like this one be sure to link it . Hope every one has a great rest of the week .
