Mac Cosmetics Brave lipstick swatch + Rimmel alternative!

I have a long wish list of Mac Lipsticks that I would like thanks to Kardashian Mania, but some are proving extremely hard to get hold of. So I was super happy to receive some Mac gifts being Brave lipstick and three more eyeshadow pans for my Mac palette (please see next blogpost if you would like to see my Mac palette and new shadows)

Mac Brave is a beautiful nude pink/mauve toned shade that is super easy to wear, I would love Mac lipliners Whirl or Soar to go with it but I can't get hold of them at the moment! One day....(dreaming!) 

Pictured here above Mac Brave is a Satin formula lipstick and is swatched on me on its own with no base or liner underneath. It's definitely my current favourite Mac lipstick i own at the moment, with Angel running in close second. I currently own Brave, Angel, Ruby Woo, Pretty Please, Candy Yum Yum, Chatterbox and Snob.

My Mac Lipstick wish list is as follows at the moment: Velvet Teddy, Honey Love, Twig, Faux, Myth, Captive and St Germain. Any others you recommend? 

What's your favourite Mac lipstick or liner shades, and what's your favourite formula? Please share your views in the comments below, I would love to hear from you. 

After thought: after I had finished this blog I suddenly had a thought that I already owned a very similar shade so swatched them next to each other and the similarity was so close I thought I would add it in. The Rimmel London Kate Moss lipstick in shade 08 is a pretty darn good cheaper alternative.

Swatched here is Rimmel 08 on left and Mac Brave on right, with the top picture without flash and underneath with flash. They are slightly differ in formula, with the Mac actually appearing more matte than the Rimmel but I was still impressed. 

The Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks are £5.99 (at the moment in Boots are also 2 for £10 for a limited time) where as Mac lipsticks are £15.50. If you wanted a slightly lighter shade in the Rimmel the 03 shade is a beautiful nude also, 03 is swatched at the top in picture below. So Rimmel is a great alternative to try out if you can't get your hands on Mac or prefer a cheaper brand.

Please let me know if you know any good dupes for any Mac shades also, would be great to share. Thanks so much for reading. Speak soon. Karen x
