Always have a MAC lipstick in my bag. My current fave is the Creme In your coffee! It’s the best nude pink and is very smooth and shiny! Works on dry lips which is a god send!
Do the work and find the colour that best suits you!!
These have always been great quality lipsticks, which great lasting power and pigmented colours. If you’re wanting a standard good quality lipstick MAC lipsticks are the way to go.
Tips: Use with a lipliner
I love these lipsticks, I currently have "Hang-Up" and "D for Danger" I really love the formula, easy to apply and remove at the end of the day/night.
They really do stand the test of time and I don't find myself having to reapply very often/at all. I like to pair mine with a lip pencil to line my lips beforehand to really get the most out of one application.
They are definitely worth the $40 price tag, I've had both of mine for 4-5 years wearing them on the odd occasion and have found that they keep well in the right conditions.
I have been looking for a great everyday colour for ages, and I have finally found it in MAC’s Velet Teddy Matt lipstick. It is the perfect shade, it is a warm light rosy brown which when applied it almost nude depending on your skin colour. On me it gives my lips colour without being over the top, it is highly pigmented so lasts. Although it is a Matt it is a feels creamy and is a smooth lipstick. Although MAC lipsticks are expensive they are well worth the money.
Tips: If you unsure if the colour Velet Teddy is for you, try the little MAC version rather than the full size.
These babies go on so smoothly and have real staying power. The colours are vibrant and so many shades to choose from. Yeah the price may be 40 dollars but boy is it worth it! I have so many I had to buy a new lipstick holder....
I've tried so many lipsticks and these are my definite go to. Such a staple for a night out or a girls trip to the mall. They don't dry out your lips as some lipsticks do. You name it there is an occasion for these bad boys. Don't settle for second best. MAC lipsticks are 100% fabulous.
Tips: Apply lip liner around the lip line. Lip balm for primer and and MAC lipstick to the top. For extra staying power set with a powder.
I have a few MAC lipsticks that I use. The colors glide on and they are long lasting. I can go all night without needing to reapply, even after eating and drinking.
Tips: If I want a more subtle approach to some of my colours, I will use the lipstick as a lip stain by applying lipstick for a few minutes then wiping it off and applying lip gloss.
We've all heard how well Mac lipsticks hold up and how well the colour stays, so I don't feel I need to elaborate greatly here. I do feel the textures vary, my red is very dry/matte where some of my pinks seem to be glossier - I don't pay much attention to labels when I buy them (I go for the colour) so perhaps this is mentioned on the tube! They will be my go to for a long time to come I think, with the pinks I find I don't need a lip liner but I do tend to use one for the reds.
Tips: Make sure your lips aren't cracked or peeling before using these - it will show
This is my go-to orange lipstick that I wear when wearing matching clothes. I love that it doesn't dry your lips out but isn't glossy & sticky - I have very dry lips and eczema so the hydration is a bonus. Love the colour and would definitely go back to repurchase others. Since then I have purchased Velvety, but it is a bit too white when I put it on so am experimenting with making it work with lip liner. Very nice product :)
I have a few Mac lippies, but I am most thrilled about the shade “Brave”, it’s a pinkish nude and suits my skintonte the best, everything looks so flattering on me, the shade, the formula, the finish and I can wear it with a strong eye makeup look as well as a natural look, it’s perfect.
I never ever repurchased a lipstick shade in my life before, nothing wowed me this much, this shade will forever be in my collection, I hope they won’t discontinue it ever.
I have some other shades like stone, deep rooted, lovelorn and hot chocolate. All formulas are nice and wearable and the matte one doesn’t dry my lips out, they’re all so creamy and go on beautifully.
With so many shades I’m sure you’ll be able to find your perfect shade too, just give it a try!
Tips: Best to try a few shades at a Mac counter as online pictures can be deceiving.
