I’ve decided to do an update on the new matte lipsticks I got from MAC! My first post HERE I had just received these! Ive had alot of questions when I share pics of these on my That post is my most popular to date! I wanted to re swatch the shades I got and tell you my thoughts on them after having them for a few months!
This shade is my favourite MAC lipstick now. It’s just the perfect colour. It has really good staying power (about 4 hours for me) and when it fades it fades out really nicely. If that makes sense? It wears of evenly until there is nothing there (u less you re-touch it) Other lipsticks can smear and go patchy and cling to dry patches, this colour does not do this.
I have honestly only worn this twice! Beauty blogger PROBLEMS! There is just not enough days in the week to wear the lipsticks I wanna wear! Still really love this colour but no real update on it. This type of colour I feel like I need to have my makeup and hair and clothes looking great. Its kind of grungy colour, so for me to feel like I still look nice and not messy while wearing a grey brown that what I feel like I gotta do! This isn’t a colour you can just throw on and head down to the shops!
MAC ANTIQUE VELVET
This colour is more daring for me. Again I havent worn this one a lot, as you know im a mum of 5 so I don’t really go out! This is the type of colour I would want to wear out to dinner or something like that! With winged liner and lashes and barely anything else on the eyes.
I got this colour for the same reason as Antique velvet, and again I havent been out!
Now be kind, if you’ve been following me for a while you already KNOW my swatches are so fricken messy haha!

A few years ago I didn’t own any MAC lipsticks, in Australia they are $36 and I was never going to pay $36 just because it was MAC. While going through duty-free I bought my first. When I wore it I realised it was better than the random lipsticks I owned from “drug store” or “priceline” brands. And there the love for MAC grew! Every shade or formula i bought I loved and felt so comfortable in! Now I buy my MAC from America using click HERE to see how. I really enjoy the formula and the huge colour range and these shades are no different. Whirl will be a favourite for a long time!
