Hi there, sweet friends!
I bet you know this by now, but…
I’m a lipstick-lovin’ lady.
Can you tell from the photo above? I recently purchased this acrylic lipstick carousel from Nordstrom and my lipstick game has forever been changed. I can now see all of my favorite lippies front-and-center. And guess what? I keep reaching for 6 particular MAC lipsticks these days…
Trust me, these 6 lipsticks will complement your fall wardrobe, like WOAH.
But these aren’t just your typical lippies! The game-changer is that they’re ALL MINIATURE!
I swear by the size of these lipsticks because they make for the most precise lip application. The smaller frame of the lipstick fits the pout just right.
I picked these up from the MAC counter at Nordstrom after hearing that they had added the “Little MAC” lipstick line that consists of only their most popular shades. And, I can attest to the fact that these pint-sized cuties are game-changers for the lipstick-obsessed.
I’ve always preferred travel-sized lipsticks for their ease of application, as mentioned above. I’m telling you, these minis make your lips look WAY better (and they make overdrawing small lips WAY easier… #guilty) Also, they just so happen to take up less space in your purse. (My bag is ALWAYS overstuffed so I’ll take the space-saver…)
You can give a few shades a try at an affordable price without purchasing the more expensive, full-sized version of each.
(The minnies also happen to be on sale for only $8.50 per lipstick right now!!)
…that’s an insanely good price, am I right?!?
Thank you, Nordstrom!
P.S. Check out the 127 5-star reviews on Nordstrom.com for proof that these little MAC lipsticks are PURE GOLD. I’m not the only one in love with these magical mini lippies… 🙂
And now, without further ado, here are my 6 fall faves:
(plus a Rocky cameo or 2…) 🙂
#1 MEHR (My everyday, looks-good-no-matter-what lip color!)
I’ve worn this lippie about a billion times. “Mehr” has been a consistent favorite of mine FOR YEARS! You can see proof in all 3 of these blog posts: silk tassel scarf, classic #NSale trench & my comfy sneakers and bell sleeve pairing!
So, I bet you can imagine my excitement when I found out that my forever favorite “Mehr” by MAC was now available as a “little MAC” lippie. As a matter of fact, it kind of made day… perhaps that’s sad? baha. I’ll own that.
Anywho, it’s one of those lipsticks that complements (nearly) everything. It’s the one that you throw in your handbag in a rush, because it’ll work with whatever you pulled from your closet in a hurry out the door.
Trust me, just try it.
I mean, it is on sale for $8.50! 🙂
#2 WHIRL (A crazy-popular, rich brown neutral!)
It’s a pinky-brown hue with solid color payoff that still reads “natural”. It has killer staying power (as do most matte MAC lippies) and it has massive crowd-appeal since it works with a multitude of skin tones.
I’ve used MAC’s Whirl lip liner for years, but have only recently incorporated this little Whirl lipstick into my lip routine within the past 2 months. I can’t believe I didn’t snag this shade as a lipstick much earlier- it’s fab.
#3 RUSSIAN RED (my newfound fave BOLD red!)
I’m a red lip girl at heart (I bet you’ve noticed…) – there’s nothing quite like a crimson pout.
I wear a red lippie no matter the season. It’s my forever fave. This particular hue, “Russian Red“, has blue undertones which make teeth look way whiter (aka: my favorite thing ever)!! If you’re a MAC “Ruby Woo” superfan like me, then know that “Russian Red” is a slightly deeper red hue with a much creamier finish. Since I have dry lips – this is a very helpful benefit! I’m SUCH A FAN of this one, my friends. (Especially when it’s a mini!) It’ll also be killer for the upcoming holiday season!
#4 DIVA (A vampy autumnal hue!)
Every woman needs a moody, deeply pigmented burgundy hue. This one’s a bit vampy and oh-so-sophisticated for autumn. (I LOVE.) It’s definitely on the sexier side, so I say rock this “Diva” shade come date night, my sweets! At the same time, once the temp changes and fall is in full force – I’m pretty darn sure that I’ll be wearing this all hours of the day. No date night required.
It’s opaque, it’s long-lasting, and it’s pretty darn Bad-A**!
#5 SMOKED ROSE (A pink hue that pops but still feels “fall”!)
Sure, fall is nearly here, but there’s no way I’m giving up my pink lip! This particular hue is a nice balance between seasons. It’s a deeper pink that doesn’t read straight up “summer”. Like it’s name implies, it’s a smoky rose that’s very fitting for fall despite its fuschia hue.
It’s a limited edition shade that I purchased as a part of this MAC Look in A Box I previously reviewed on my IG story! It’s continued to be a favorite of mine – snag it while you can as it will most likely be discontinued at some point. (And it’s a winner!)
Psst… Read the reviews on Nordstrom.com for proof of this lipstick set’s ahhhmazingness. 🙂
#6 LOVE ME LOTS (PERF if it’s a nude lip kinda day!)
Yep, I love statement lips. But I also know when an outfit needs a nude lip. If your outfit reads: WOW, oftentimes the makeup needs to be on the DL. This neutral lippie, “Love Me Lots”, will be your rescue. Similar to the lippie directly above, this particular miniature shade is only available in one of MAC’s LOOK IN A BOX lip sets. (It’s a killer combo, gal pals!!) I previously reviewed it HERE during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I continue to wear it ON THE REG.
By the way, I’ll be trying on all 6 of these lipsticks for you on my Instagram Story today! Check it out for a close-up, real life look at these hues!
(BTW, want to shop this dreamy robe? I’m utterly obsessed! You can shop it HERE!)
