50 Shades of MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks Part 1

  50 Shades of MAC Blog

Have you ever wanted a one stop shop to be able to check out MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks on Women of Color? Sure, they’re Pinterest but even then finding swatches of limited edition and discontinued shades can be pretty hard. Last year I had this grand idea that I was going to swatch every single MAC Cosmetics lipstick that I owned. I had it all planned out and everything until reality hit me. If you haven’t seen my lipstick collection you’re probably a little in the dark so let me update you. I currently own maybe oh 50-75 shades of MAC Lipstick. Between photographing and editing I knew I wouldn’t have time to do anything else. Since, I’m getting a PhD and all I put my brain skills to work and came up with the idea of creating a 50 Shades of MAC Directory featuring other fabulous beauty bloggers. 

Each of us has chosen ten shades, some are permanent and some are Limited Edition, but we’ve swatched them all for your viewing pleasure. At the bottom of the post you’ll see links to the other blogs featuring their 50 Shades. You can all check all of the shades out here in this Pinterest Image. 

Am I featuring any of your favorites? Let me know in the comments!

    I really love this collaboration! I think it can be so difficult to determine what a shade looks like based on arm swatches or product pictures alone. There’s also such a paucity of bloggers with deeper skintones, this will be a great resource!

    You are creating such an awesome resource! Way to go!!! :) MAC really is the “gold standard” in lipstick for me. These shades all look amazing on you!
