Makeup Monday: Top 10 MAC Spring Lipsticks And Their Dupes

Hello again! I know Monday's are tough, so I decided to talk about spring today because I felt like that could cheer us all up on this dreary winter Monday. I wanted to focus this makeup post on my top 10 MAC lipsticks for spring! I love MAC lipsticks because I think they have such an amazing array of colors and finishes and they are not TOO expensive ($16 each) but I will include some dupes for the colors if you would like the same look for a lesser price. I especially love wearing lipstick in the spring and summer because I feel like a bright lip looks best with minimal makeup, so you look very put together even when you did not spend much time getting ready. Bright colors are perfect for spring, as well as light pinks and soft neutrals, so those are the colors I have chosen today. Most of the lipsticks are in a matte finish because I love the option of wearing it matte, but you can always put a gloss over top if you wanted a sheen. I also just think the bright colors look better on my lips in a matte finish. I hope you enjoy these bold lips and it inspires you to step out of your comfort zone this spring season!

There is one more MAC Lipstick that did not make the cut, mostly because I have not purchased it yet, but I think it is so great for spring. Orange is very in this spring season and the color "Lady Danger" is a perfect matte finish bright orange red (dupe NYX Matte Lipstick in "Indie Flick" HERE).

  10. Genuine mantra is a sheer utilization of establishment is the way to look normal and splendid in the concentrate light. It reflects dazzling marriage representation glances in the wedding photos. Likewise, an excessive amount of establishment won't last more. Simply apply a decent preliminary before applying establishment. A decent preliminary base makes your cosmetics remain longer and makes it look perfect.
