Makeup Monday : Recent MAC Purchases

Yes, I understand it is Tuesday but I had every intention of uploading this post yesterday but when I got home to take the photos it was dark and the quality of the photos were awful. I decided to wait one day to give you clearer shots in the day time and then you can really see the colours better.
It is no surprise I'm a lipstick junkie. I love lipsticks, especially matte lipsticks. I hate lip gloss so the more matte a lipstick the better. I think matte makes my small lips look bigger and gives that classic look. I also think it lasts longer even though it's definitely more of a chore to keep up with them because if you don't, you can look quite silly with just a line around the edges of your lips.
I have been eyeing the Retro Matte collection at MAC for the longest time. I bought Riri Woo Retro matte lipstick a few months back and I fell in love. It's definitely better then the regular matte lipsticks because Retro is just so classy looking, bold and even more matte. 
The retro matte collection however, has been sold out for the longest time. I was that annoying girl who called every MAC around me asking if they had any in stock. I checked online everyday and even signed up for the notification to let me know when some colours were back in stock. Finally my MAC store closest to me called and let me know they had some colours in stock. I rushed to MAC after I finished work and grabbed the All Fired Up colour and the More To Love lip pencil. I was going to get Flat Out Fabulous but it looked too similar to my Candy Yum-Yum and Girl About Town.
I also picked up another colour I have been wanting for Fall, which was the Diva matte lipstick.

This lipstick is a gorgeous fuchsia pink but a little darker so it's still okay to wear for Fall. It's absolutely gorgeous paired with More To Love lip pencil which is a darker pink, even better for Fall.

This lipstick as I mentioned above was a colour I have been eyeing down for a while. I have tons of reds and pinks but not a lot of berry and burgundy colours. This is stunning reddish-burgundy colour and is perfect for Fall. Although this isn't part of the Retro Matte collection it's still gorgeously matte and bold on my lips.

I have a shot of me on Saturday wearing the Diva lipstick with my cat costume (how original).
