Happy Saturday beautiful people! I went on holiday a few weeks ago and obviously I had to purchase some beauty bits whilst in World Duty Free! I think I’ve actually never gone to an airport and not bought something from the Mac stand on either side… which explains my lipstick collection I guess.

I have quite a few similar colours in my lipstick collection and found myself picking up colours I already have. In the end I purchased Chilli and Verve which are two gorgeous and thankfully very different colours.

Mac Chilli Lipstick

The perfect description of Chilli is that it’s the colour of a dark red chilli, plain and simple. I have Ruby Woo and Lady Danger already but I wanted something a bit bricky and not too bright. Chilli ticked the right boxes for me as it’s dark but not a wine red.

Mac Verve Lipstick

Verve is that perfect 90s brown nude. It’s a really dark matte nude that reminds me a lot of Angelina Jolie circa 1995. I really liked that it’s dark, but not vampy but it’s not the easiest colour to wear because it’s so dark. I actually wore it last night though, and it’s beautiful on when you pair it with the right outfit and makeup.

Have you tried either of these colours? What do you think?

    In love with the darker red colour, especially after a nice tan or on a darker complexion – duty free seems to be one of the best parts of the holiday!
