Mac-Lipstick swatches

Hey dolls.  I had ordered a bunch of new lipsticks from Mac earlier this month and was especially interested in purchasing Candy Yum Yum, as it seems everyone and their mother is going on and on about this lipstick.

 But more on that later, I will just let the pictures do the talking: 
This has too much of a blue base for me and is not flattering on my skintone.

It looks like it leans more orange in the tube, but it warms up on the lips to a pretty peachy-nude.

This is a matte finish, and is nicely pigmented but looks like Cherish on the lips for me.  I do like Cherish a tad bit more though, because it has a satin finish.
I couldn't pass up a Viva Glam lipstick, and chose this wearable, flattering color.  

An amplified creme, and one of my favorites from the choices I made.  Bright and loud.  

This lipstick I had such a hard time capturing, but as you can see it is a blue based pink lipstick.  Do I like it as much as I thought I would?  Meh.  But that's just me...maybe it will grow on me.  Impassioned is right up my alley though, and I sported that one already on a night out.
What are some of your favorite Mac lipsticks?



  1. I don't wear lipstick, just glosses. I do have two MAC glosses - one that I totally love Shock-O-Late and a berry colored one (that I rarely wear)...though I do like it. Of the lipsticks you picked up, I like Cherish, Viva Glam II and Impassioned (my fave of the bunch). I might actually get Impassioned and wear it on occasion.
