Summer Bold Lip Approved: MAC Lipstick Swatches

Summer is here and it is no secret my go to makeup look is bronzed skin with a neutral bronze eye and a bold MAC Lipstick of course! MAC Lipsticks are my go to and I just can not quit them. This look is so effortless and easy yet looks extremely polished for a night out. If you want to glam it up more you can add false lashes and layer on highlighter! MAC Lady Danger is my all time favorite shade of red lipstick but as of late I have branched out for different seasons as orange toned is usually not a winter color but I still wear it LOL!  Get ready to see 4 gorgeous MAC Lipstick swatches that will surely be summer bold lip approved. If you are newer to bold lips, these 4 colors in my opinion are tame. Not too orange and not too red.

MAC Lipstick for the perfect bold summer lip!

Shades Top – Bottom:

Habanero: Vibrant Orange Red 

Tropic Tonic: Full Power Coral (Matte)

Lady Danger: Vivid Bright Coral Red (Matte) 

Lobster: Burnt Orange 

 

MAC Lipstick

As you can see they are all pretty similar but different. When it comes to finding the perfect red lip you have to try them on and see what works with your skin tone. I prefer a more orange/coral Red and that is why Lady Danger has stolen my heart.  Whenever I am getting ready and fall in the love with the look I created I will take a picture. I was headed to a MAC event and just loved how my lips popped but the rest of my face was softer. I hope in the future to start showcasing more looks on my blog so stay tuned!!!!

What is your go to bold lip for summer? I would love to know!

TOP MAC PRODUCTS: MAC X ULTA

Dreams really do come true! MAC is now sold at Ulta Beauty and I could not be happier. While its currently only online it will be available in select stores starting in June. Most of you already know I prefer Ulta Beauty over Sephora as I love my drugstore makeup and their rewards program is so much better in my opinion. The fact that I can now redeem points on MAC  just gives me all the feelings and I am here to give you my picks for Top Mac Products to place in your shopping cart. PS for all my Ulta Beauty platinum holders out there I have been informed that just like all of the other prestige brands the 20% off coupons are excluded. However you know we tend to get surprises with those 20% off coupons so lets hope and pray  MAC is included on some of those. My advice? Stay platinum and keep your eyes open for that!!! Can you imagine?!! 20% off MAC…. I will just be over here waiting lol

Here are my pick for Top MAC Products you can purchase from Ulta Beauty:

Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation: My first first foundation and I have never looked back. I have repurchased this soooo many times. Its a powder foundation that settles like a liquid. Talk about easy application with a matte finish and medium coverage. I am in the shade N5

Prep & Prime Fix + Spray: This spray has a cult following for a reason and if you are not a follower, believer or user please please just try it.  It is packed with vitamins and minerals and gives your face the hydration you need. Not only does this finish your makeup, you can use it to enhance the pigment of eyeshadows, spray it on before your makeup for a boost (I do this in the winter ALOT when I am real dry) & I have also sprayed my beauty sponges to dampen them when I do my makeup at my desk and don’t have water lol PS this comes in a travel size and its the perfect place to start to try this product.

Mineralize Skinfinish: The shade soft and gentle is iconic however because I wanted a more bronzy looking highlighter I opted for Global Glow and this product is just perfect. I know I will be adding more shades to my collection. This product is a slow baked powder with a radiant finish. You can use it as a highlighter or an all over face powder for a sheer glow to the skin.

Extra Dimension Blush: New to MAC’s blush family this blush is very very special. If you are new here I am a blush addict so I am picky and wow this formula is fabulous. So creamy and blendable and looks flawless on the skin.  Per the Ulta Website: “combining the smoothness of a cream, blendability of a liquid, and finish of a powder with long-wearing colour and prismatic reflections” 

Lip Products: MAC Lipsticks are my number 1 lipstick. I have tried numerous brands and finishes and I always go to my MAC in my collection or to MAC to purchase new colors I want in my collection. Liptensity is a new formula to the MAC family and I am in love. I can literally go on and on and on about them but instead I will leave you with some of my must have shades that are sold at Ulta.

  • Honey Love: Matte Finish
  • Lady Danger: Matte Finish (9 times out of 10 this is the ONLY red I wear)
  • Spirit: Satin Finish (totally underrated nude that I have made my mission as a blogger to make this shade a thing. Its perfect)
  • Blankety: Amplified Finish (go to nude)
  • Burnt Spice: Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick
  • Driftwood: Liptensity

Prep & Prime Lip: At first I was not sure about this product. I kept reading about it and how much people have loved it. I gave in and bought it and oh boy the hype is real. This is perfect for your matte lipsticks to fill in those little lines and to prevent feathering. I wear this all the time with my red shades or liquid lipsticks.

Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: My go to setting powder. Its a natural finish so its not too matte and not too dewy. This powder can he used to fix makeup throughout the day as well and on those days I just want a little bit of something to my face I will just use this after I moisturize. It literally wakes up my skin. I am in the shade Medium Plus

Eyeshadow X 9 Palettes: Small palette that packs a lot of punch and variety for you. These are great for everyday, to travel and to throw in your purse for those nights out after work.

Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Liquid Foundation: If you ask my mother who has been so influential throughout my beauty journey she says nothing looks better on my skin than this foundation. I mix it with the strobe cream as this is a matte finish however its a natural matte. Its not too matte but I just prefer to have a more dewy glow. The color range for this foundation is amazing and my shade is C3.5 and that is why I just make it work for me because the shade is pretty much spot on. Per the Ulta Website: “A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium to full buildable coverage with broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 15 and PA++ protection. Applies, builds, and blends easily and evenly. Comfortable and long-wearing, it helps minimize the appearance of pores and imperfections, giving skin a smoother, more flawless look and finish

Strobe Cream: Since I just mentioned this iconic MAC Product lets talk about it next. It comes in 5 shades and can be used alone as an all over face product, mixed with foundation or on the high points of the face to highlight.  I love mixing liquid highlighters in my foundation and moisturizers and this is my go to. I prefer the shades Goldlite and Peachlite 

MAC has always been my go to. They were the first luxury brand that stole my heart at 16 and its been 20 years and I do not fore see any breakups in the future. I truly hope this helps you for your next Ulta Beauty purchase. Let me know what you plan to pick up or what some of your top MAC products are!
