Brown Beauty Bloggers Rockin’ 50 Shades of MAC

50 shades of MAC

Oh darliiiings, I have something in store for you. I had the opportunity to partner with 4 other talented brown girl beauty bloggers for a little collaboration called 50 Shades of MAC. There are 5 of us and we are each showcasing 10 MAC Cosmetics lipsticks. The lipsticks featured are both permanent and limited edition and I think you’ll love getting a chance to see how these shades look on brown girls of various complexions. And because I am…ME, some of those pictures are some kinds of silly. You know how I do.

So…let’s get this party started!

MAC Port Red

First up is Port Red. Launched from the 2008 Naughty Nauticals, Port Red is a blue red that has subtle silver undertones. It almost looks metallic.

MAC Black Knight

2008 also gave us the goth-friendly collection Cult of Cherry. I loved the dark shades of this collection and I knew that I had to have Black Knight. Because why wouldn’t you want a creamy black lipstick in your life?

MAC Violetta

Violetta is a bright violet purple and it is one of MAC’s Bestsellers for a reason. This shade looks stunning on women of all complexions.

MAC Most Popular

Most Popular is from the 2009 Hello Kitty collection and I really only picked this up because Hello Kitty is my spiritual animal. It’s a deep berry red that is average at best, but come on…it has Hello Kitty imprinted on the stick. ‘Nuff said!

MAC Electro

I remember first seeing Electro from the Neo Sc-Fi collection and going crazyyyyy. This creamy orange isn’t exactly the most flattering thing when worn alone on darker skin but honey, I don’t care. I LIVE for Electro.

MAC 3-D

3-D used to be my “interview” lipstick back in the day. Whenever I was job hunting and needed to head on an interview, this rose made me feel like I was going to get the job!

MAC Pomposity

There really isn’t anything striking about the purpley magenta that is Pomposity. The silver shimmer in it provides a little bit more pop than your average magenta lipstick and that’s what drew me to Lady Pomp.

Politely Pink, I feel, is MAC’s answer to a nude lip for brown girls. When paired with Chestnut lip liner, I found this lipstick to be so flattering when so many other so-called nudes weren’t.

MAC Girl About Town

Girl About Town and I have good memories because I think this was the lipstick that made me fall for bright colors. This vibrant berry actually looks good on all complexions!

MAC Candy Yum Yum

Candy Yum-Yum. So yeah…I ignored that matte hot pink the first time it came out. The second time I scooped it up. And now? I love it so so much. I love pairing it with MAC’s Nightmoth to really compliment me.

    I agree with Melody…you have some shades I’ve never seen either. I really like Girl About Town and though I’m not a nude lipstick wearer, Politely Pink is very intriguing to me.
