It's been a while since I last did any Mac Cosmetics posts, so I thought it was about time that I updated my lipstick collection for the second time. The first update post consisted of 11 lipsticks, and my Mac Brand Focus post included 13 lipsticks, but now I'm up to 18 in total and I'm not done yet. There are a mix of finishes in this post, including Retro Mattes, Creamsheens, Satins, Mattes and Amplified finishes which is one reason I've included swatches below to see the colour payoff and how the shades look.

Brave, Viva Glam Ariana Grande, Chatterbox, Diva, Flat Out Fabulous, Hang Up, Hot Gossip, Kinda Sexy, Lady Danger, Viva Glam Miley Cyrus II, Pure Heroine, Rebel, Relentlessly Red, Ruby Woo, Speed Dial, Velvet Teddy, Up The Amp and Whirl.

Retro Matte: Flat Out Fabulous, Relentlessly Red, Ruby Woo.

Creamsheen: Hang Up, Hot Gossip, Speed Dial.

Satin: Brave, Rebel.

Matte: Viva Glam Ariana Grande, Diva, Kinda Sexy, Lady Danger, Viva Glam Miley Cyrus II, Pure Heroine, Velvet Teddy, Whirl.

Amplified: Chatterbox, Up The Amp.

Although some of the finishes may be the same, I've found different shades do tend to be different. The creamsheen finish is my favourite (although it doesn't seem it from the amount of matte shades I own) but Brave is a lot drier than Hot Gossip, which is the most used lipstick I have by far. I also noticed that Ruby Woo isn't as dry as Flat Out Fabulous or Relentlessly Red too, not that I've used them that much. I received Diva which is one of the darkest lipsticks along with Hang Up for Christmas which I was yet to wear until I swatched it for this post and fell in love with it. My favourite shades at the moment are Velvet Teddy and Whirl and feel like I should add more brown toned shades to the collection in the future. As the warmer months come around I'll be wearing Up The Amp, Lady Danger and Kinda Sexy

What shades should I buy next?
