MAC Cosmetics – Haute Dogs collection haul

18th September 2015

Finally the Haute Dogs collection has made it to the UK. Whilst in London at a dress fitting I called into the MAC shop in Westfields shopping centre. I haven’t been this excited about a MAC collection in years.

I’m a firm believer there’s no such thing as too many nude lipsticks and I’m obsessed with burgundy colours for Autumn.

I love the promo visuals for this collection, which feature women and their canine counterparts. When I first got into makeup I would eagerly await new MAC collection launches and collected the accompanying post cards. They don’t seem to do these anymore which is a shame.

Mac Haute Dogs

I purchased three nude lipstick shades, a deep burgundy lipstick, nude shimmery gloss and three nail polishes in tan, grey and burgundy. I love the MAC nail varnish colours but do find the formula to be quite thin when applied and relatively easy to chip. However this can be worked around with a good top coat.

From left to right: Nose For Style, Rare Breed, Fashion Pack & Barking Gorgeous.


Barking Gorgeous is my favourite lipstick from the collection. An orange warn-toned nude which is easy to wear.


Fashion Pack is a pale nude. It doesn’t have as bold a colour payoff as I would have hoped.


Rare Breed is a pink toned nude. I love the formula of these mineralise lipsticks. Highly creamy and comfortable to wear.


Nose For Style is a purple burgundy tone. Perfect for Autumn. There’s an accompanying lipgloss in this collection which I love to wear over the top.


Laptop mineralize lipgloss. Laptop is similar to MAC favourite gloss C-Thru, but filled with very finely milled glitter. It’s not overly sticky and as comfortable to wear as a lipgloss ever is.

      I really love them, that’s my favourite too I think. I actually picked up the gloss which goes with this (dressed to the K9s) yesterday, oops!

    I’m not a nude lipstick girl but that dark burgundy one is stunning!
