Winter Lipsticks with M.A.C. Cosmetics

Recently I worked with MAC Cosmetics to try out and show you some lipstick shades I've been loving for Winter! I selected two shades that I can choose to wear lightly and not too bright - I definitely wear nudes more often than a dark purple! 

I have quite pale skin in the Winter so I chose lipsticks with warmer undertones so I didn't wash out my complexion. In the colder months, I normally stay away from grey or ashy shades and they can make me look a little sick! 

To start with, I used the Lip Conditioner for at least a week! I've lost my pawpaw ointment so this was a godsend! I often put it on before applying product and before bed.

The first shade is 'On Hold', I loved this lip-stain because I could wear it bright if I felt like it or more subtle as a stain. It stayed on while I ate food and throughout the whole day at work!

The second shade was a Liptensity Lipstick in Doe and the Dervish lip pencil. This combo worked together like a dream! I have since worn both seperately and they're such lovely lip colours. Doe is quite nude/orange, I wear this to work a lot! It's a super creamy formula and It's comfortable to wear. I do have to reapply this though!

The Deverish lip pencil is a little darker, more of a brown shade. I have worn this all over as a lip colour for a night out and it lasted the night! Some product had moved from where I was drinking from a straw though! 

Have you tried either of these shades? Whats your favourite MAC lipstick? Let me know!
