4 Everyday Lipsticks from MAC

I tend to spend a little more money on lipsticks that I'll use all the time. MAC produce such fantastic quality lipsticks and today I'm sharing my favourite everyday shades. These are my go-to lipsticks for any occasion and they're perfect to wear for any occasion. I think my featured four will easily see you through the year. If you've not added these to your collection yet, what are you waiting for!?

Coral Bliss 

Coral Bliss is a new one for me, I wanted an everyday shade for summer and I love this one! It's got just the right mixture of orange and pink tones and it's a cremesheen so wears really nicely throughout the day. It's also not as bright and bold as some coral lipsticks can be so it's ideal to wear everyday. I think it will suit pale skins especially if you have yellow-neutral undertones.


Hue has always been one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. It's a nude that suits even the palest of complexions. I like wearing this one on days where I want smokier eyes and it's great for day and night. I have to be careful with this shade though, if I don't wear eyeliner I can look a bit washed out. It has the perfect amount of creamy pink tones without any brown which makes it very pretty and feminine.

Please Me

This lipstick is also a new one in my collection - I don't have many matte shades from MAC. Having typically dry lips I stay away from matte formulas but this one feels really comfortable all day. Please Me is the most opaque of all my favourite everyday lipsticks but it's still really wearable for during the day. It has an even mix of lilac and yellow tones making it a very neutral pink which would suit everybody. Sometimes a matte lip can be great for the summer especially with shimmery eyes and glowy skin. 


As you can see I use this lipstick a lot! A couple of years ago Angel was my go-to lipstick and I wore it all the time. I've not repurchased this one for a while and since found other lipsticks but it remains a lovely everyday colour with a bit of a cool sheen. It's a pinker version of Hue and a little lighter than my natural lip colour. You can wear a very sheer layer of this or build it up to a stronger opacity. It's an everyday baby pink.

I'd be interested to hear about your most worn lipsticks from MAC. For me you can't beat the quality and all of the lipsticks mentioned above have great lasting power. The odd touch up throughout the day might be needed but with these shades you don't even need a mirror! I don't tend to use lip liner with these everyday lipsticks but if you wanted to dramatise them for a night out a lip liner all over the lips first could be the way to go. MAC lipsticks currently retail at £15 and all of the above shades are part of the permanent line, which means they'll always be available. Yey!

  11. I need to add Coral Bliss and Please Me to my MAC lipstick collection. I always get overwhelmed by the amount of shades MAC have and can never choose one but these are now on my wishlist.

  12. I too love MAC lipsticks. I have just one right now but planning on buying more colors. A red and a pink. 'Please me' looks perfect shade of pink that I would want and I have heard great reviews about 'Lady Danger' red. Coral bliss looks amazing as well for day wear. The best part about MAC lipsticks is how smoothly they glide across your lips and feel so light like you haven't really applied anything. Also they are extremely long lasting. Worth every penny.

  13. Thanks for the recommendations! I have been become more daring with lipstick lately - I have to admit that in the past I really didn't use any sort of lip color at all. But I'm trying to be more daring at professional events and parties. Right now I'm trying to find a red lipstick that makes me feel beautiful and not too costumey - do you have a favorite?
