Top 5 MAC Lipsticks -- Fall Edition!


Hello my dears! Today I wanted to do a quick post about my favorite MAC lipsticks for Fall!


Typically I associate Fall with berry, red, or vampy lips. Because I don't have the fullest lips in the world I try to stick to a lighter lipsticks in that color palette. The darker the lipstick, the smaller your lips appear!


(l-r) Syrup, Plumful, Craving, Rebel, Viva Glam I


Syrup (Lustre) -- Syrup is definitely a "my lips but better" lipstick with a plummy twist. Because it is relatively sheer, I find this one to be the easiest to wear and most flattering on a variety of different skin tones. Syrup has a permanent home in my handbag and I consider it a must have item, especially for Fall!

Plumful (Lustre) -- Plumful is Syrup's racier, sexier older sister. They are similar in color but Plumful is just slightly darker and more purple/plum. I love to wear this with cool toned eye looks and every time I wear this lippy I get a compliment. That has to mean something, right?!

Craving (Amplified) -- Craving is a gorgeous mid tone pinky plum with outstanding pigmentation and staying power. Because of it's Amplified finish, Craving isn't a throw it on and go kind of lipstick. You definitely need a mirror and perhaps a brush, but totally worth it!

Rebel (Satin) -- One of the newest additions to my collection and I am in love. Rebel is described as a berry red by MAC. This lipstick can be swiped on for full opacity, or patted on the lips for more of a stained effect. Rebel is bright yet dark at the same time... quite an interesting color if you ask me! I think this is one of those lipsticks that will look good on just about anyone, regardless of how fair or deep their skin tone is.

Viva Glam I (Matte) -- I already have a full review up on Viva Glam I so please check that out for lip swatches, etc. VGI is a burgundy red that I think is well suited for Fall. Because it is slightly deeper and richer than your typical red it borders on vampy while still remaining wearable.




Have you tried any of my favorites? What are your favorite lipsticks for Fall?

  3. so glad you did this post! I've been wanting to get a new lip product or two for the fall and haven't been sure what to get. I think craving is my favorite but I would probably avoid it with that finish but syrup sounds perfect for a subtle color with a hint of plum!

  4. Ahaha just admiring the shades and thought wow 5 is gorgeous, and yep that's the one I just bought. You're like a MAC guru, you have such an amazing MAC Collection. You should do a product directory for everything you review and swatch, I know it would be very popular xxx

  5. If you like Craving, you'll like Captive. Captive is more plummy pinkish with a hint of purple (what?!). One of my favorite, Sarah! Craving, here I come!:D

  18. Plumful & craving are so pretty! Great selections, I love Rebel too but I feel that it wears off in the middle part of my lips so quickly which is really frustrating, I prefer to wear it as a stain.
    To answer your question from the other day, I asked somebody at Sephora for The Balm & she said to look in Walgreens which is where I found it! Hopefully it's at all of them xx

    1. I'm gonna go to Walgreens today and check it out... I'm pretty surprised to hear that because it seems a lot pricier than the items they typically sell. Thanks for letting me know :)
