15 MAC Lipsticks That Will Brighten Up Your Face

You might have noticed that some lipsticks dull down and wash out your complexion, while some other lipsticks brighten and lift up your entire face and look.  MAC has a wide range of lipsticks in every possible color and finish, so I thought why not do a post on lipstick shades from MAC that brighten up skin tone.  Actually, I had called up Rati to ask for two MAC shades that brightens up skin tones, but she gave me 15 options in less than half a minute, super cool, isn’t it!  She knows MAC lipsticks like the back of her hand, so hats off to her, and all inputs in this post are provided by her, thanks Rati :)
