Review | Mac Lipsticks | prettylittlewriter

I received my Mac order this afternoon and I thought I'd show you how amazing they are!

I chose to purchase the colours Morange and Hang Up as I wanted to try a bright orange shade for summer and be prepared for Autumn/Winter with Hang Up. I originally said in this post that I would be purchasing Russian Red too, but as I've had to spend a lot of my wages on dollars for America, I thought I'd wait a while before purchasing that shade.

Mac Lipsticks are slowly becoming my absolute favourite and I know many other bloggers have given rave reviews about them. They also smell great (like cocoa) which makes applying them to the lips even more satisfying!
Morange is a well pigmented, slightly matte, bright coral shade and looks great for any summer make up look. Hang Up is a deep purple shade with a shine to it due to it being a cremesheen lipstick.

As you can see from the swatches, Morange is nowhere near as shiny as Hang Up, and Hang Up isn't as pigmented as Morange. 

These are the shades on my lips, I love both of them so much and cannot wait to start wearing them!

As you can see, both shades give a completely different effect to your final make up look. Morange gives my make up a nice bright and summery feel to it, and Hang Up gives it a more vampy and wintery look!

Do you have any favourite Mac lipstick shades? :)


  1. Both of these colours really suit you. I wouldn't be brave enough to pull them off! Gemma x

  2. Thank you :) I wasn't sure on Morange at first as it is very daring but it's growing on me a lot! I'm sure if you gave them a try you'd be surprised! xoxo

  3. I love you chose such unique colours! Russian Red is quite common, and you can get dupes of it if you want to get the same colour. So you made some great purchases! :)

    1. Thank you! Yeah I know a lot of people that have Russian Red so I thought trying out the different colours would be better! :) xoxo

  4. Love the look of hang up, super pretty for autumn, winter!
