MAC Lipstick Swatches (Part I)

MAC Lipsticks (available here) - $15

Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

I have been having a busy couple of days, and I haven't had the time to post anything new here on the blog for a while now.  To break up the lazy spell a bit, I thought I will post a few swatches - this time from the MAC permanent collection of lipsticks.  I don't own very many of the MAC lipsticks, so this is not a "my personal collection of lipsticks" or "all the MAC lipsticks I own/bought" post.  The swatches are of lipsticks on display at my local Nordstrom MAC counter.  This definitely is not a complete collection of each and every MAC lipstick that has been put out by the very busy brand, but I have covered quite a lot of the lipsticks and am breaking these into smaller posts to avoid photo-overload.  Please scroll through or use Ctrl + F to find what you are looking for.  All swatches taken under natural lighting.
