Roisin's Mac Lipstick Must Haves (Guest Post)



Hello Lovelies, 

My names Roisin, and I am behind the Irish Fashion Beauty and Lifestyle Blog The Fashionista Observer. I created The Fashionista Observer nearly 5 years ago and since I started it again a year and a half ago after a long hiatus I have loved every second of it. Thanks to Courtney she let me share my Make-Up thoughts with all of you lovely readers. 

I absolutely love winter. Not only is it a season filled with cosy jumpers and tasty hot chocolate but it is also the season for incredible lipstick shades that complemented the season perfectly. 

As a lover of all things MAC related , I have picked my favourite shades from their amazing lipstick collection. Although they are a higher priced lipstick, I feel they justify their price perfectly through their incredible pigment and moisturising texture. They are also very long lasting in my opinion and offer a huge range of shades and finishes. 

Below are my top 4 must have shades for this festive season


Hot Gossip is the perfect plum pink shade. Perfect for a darker take on a classic nude lip and works perfect for an understated night time lip also. With a Creamsheen finish , it is moistursing to the lips and adds just enough colour to the face without being too over powering. Its purely plum perfection.


Winter always calls for a perfect Red Lippy. MAC offers a huge range of Red shades but my favourite by far is Russian Red. Russian Red is a very pigmented Red with a Matte finish to it, making it a dream to apply.Even with the huge amount of Reds, Russian Red is still a number one lipsticks in the MAC family. With blue undertones, this lipstick works perfectly with most skin-tones. Make sure to moisturise your lips and line them with a similar red lipliner to ensure a perfect application. 


Brave is a beautiful Mauve lipstick, It is a beautiful 'My Lips But Better' shade. Similar to Hot Gossip this is a perfect day time shade that is slightly darker than a neutral lip colour. With a Satin finish it gives a smooth application with a slightly Matte look to it. To transition this shade to nighttime, or for a darker day time shade I will apply this with Hot Gossip to give another dimension to the 2 shades. 


Good To Be Bad is a beautiful deep purple/burgundy shade MAC produces in my opinion. It comes from the Sheen Supreme collection which provides the impact of a lipstick with the shine of a Lipglass. It is the perfect in-between. I wear this during the day and the night for a suitable vampy look. It is the standout piece of your make up so wear with a minimal eye look and you will have the perfect winter lipstick look. 

What are your go to winter lip colours??
