Mac Lipstick Splurge

Makeup shopping is my guilty pressure and when it involves lipsticks I just can't seem to stop. I recently visited my local M.A.C store and well, I seemed to stumble to the counter with three lipsticks in my hand-whoops! I thought I would try and justify my purchases by showing my lovely readers what I picked up and let you know my first impressions. 
I don't own many MAC lipsticks, and I recently lost my most favourite lipstick Twig, so I decided to replace it. I know it sounds slightly ridiculous but I felt lost without the lipstick over the summer so decided to pick it up again and I'm super happy I did. Now the idea at this point was to just walk out of MAC with this one lipstick but that didn't quite go to plan. As I was searching through the numerous shades of lipsticks trying to find Twig I discovered a few beauties that I couldn't bring myself to put back. The two shades in question are on the same nude wavelength as Twig but are definitely different (can you tell I'm trying to convince myself here?). Spirit is Twig's brown-toned sister which looks absolutely beautiful with a deep smokey eye and defined lashes. I love how easy to wear this shade is and the satin finish is definitely my favourite. Next up we have Faux which is a b-e-a-u-tiful pinkish-nude which would compliment pretty much any skin tone. It is similar to Twig however Twig packs more of a punch when it comes to the pinker tones as it is a lot darker in comparison to Faux. I feel like these three new additions to my lipstick collection are definitely going to be my favourites to wear on a day to day basis. I will keep you updated on how much I love these lipsticks over the month and I certainly have my eye on a few more shades which I may just pop onto my birthday list... just maybe. 

Let me know your favourite MAC shades in the comments below.
