MAC Lipstick Additions

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and aren't too glum that it's Monday again! I haven't blogged this weekend as my mum and I went to visit my granny for a couple of days. It was a lovely break and we even had sunny weather the majority of the time! Anyway enough of me rabbiting on about my weekend, let's get stuck into todays post!

I was one very lucky girlfriend on Valentines Day as I received 3 MAC lipsticks! The boyf had asked what I wanted as he didn't want to buy me something I didn't want/need so I decided a MAC lipstick would be a nice treat. I gave him a list of about 8-10 shades that I want and said he could choose one as I wanted him to have some input into the present! I unfortunately had to go out during the day so left him at my house (we don't live together) for a few hours. I came home and he handed me a MAC bag with 3 lipsticks! I was shocked as I was only expecting 1! Apparently he had gone to the MAC counter and asked the lady to line them up and he picked the 3 shades he liked the most … typical bloke! Here's what he chose...

Amplified Creme - Cosmo - pink coco
Frost - Bombshell - bright rosy pink with shimmer
Cremesheen - Brave Red - bright yellow red

I was actually really impressed with his choices as he went for 3 different finishes and 3 completely different shades. I'm not sure he realises they have different finishes but either way I'm still impressed! I love Brave Red as I've wanted a nice bold red shade for a while and I think Bombshell is really pretty. When I first opened Cosmo I wasn't so sure of the colour even though I had added it to my list, but once I had tried it, I actually really liked it and it's probably my favourite of the 3 now!

Cosmo is the first Amplified Creme lipstick I have tried and I love it. I had heard great things about this finish and I can safely say I definitely agree with other bloggers that the consistency is so creamy and that you only need one coat for an opaque finish. I love Frost lipsticks and so I had high hopes for Bombshell. I love the shade however it does cling to dry lips, which you can tell slightly in the photo, whereas other Frost lipsticks I own in other shades don't. Finally I love the red! This is exactly the shade of red I was after and I'm definitely going to get good use out of it!

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Which is your favourite finish and shade? Or what ones are on your wish list?
