The Best MAC Lipsticks
Based on 273,070 Influenster Reviews
MAC lipsticks have been around for a while and haven't lost any followers since then. Pop culture celebrities often do collaborations with the brand and create custom lipstick shades and packaging. Celebs like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, and Brooke Shields have all done collabs with MAC. The MAC lipsticks come in a variety of textures and coverages: full coverage, medium coverage, buildable coverage, creamy, matte, satin, or semi-lustrous.
My favorite finish of MAC lipsticks is definitely the mattes. I currently own Whirl, Men Love Mystery, and So Select. So Select was a limited edition shade available for MAC's Select members earlier this year. It's a pretty "dirty rose" shade and the color is a "your lips but better" one for me, subtle but pretty. Whirl is probably the second most "wearable" shade after So Select. It's darker than So Select on me, although also described as a "Dirty Rose" by MAC's website. Seeing at theme here? Men Love Mystery is definitely a unique shade. If you've ever wanted a matte electric lavender, this is the one for you! I never would've picked this shade for myself, but when a girl from school with similar features to mine looked fabulous in it, I had to pick it up. I wear it more in the Spring and Summer because I like the way it looks with a bit of a tan, and it's just a more vibrant color.
MAC's matte lipstick formulation is spot-on. They don't dry out my lips or settle in the lines, emphasizing dryness. Instead, they're creamy while still being matte, and the scent is amazing. One of the best parts of MAC lipstick, to me, is the vanilla scent they all have. I highly recommend trying a few MAC lipsticks in the store and going swatch-crazy on your hand. They have a variety of finishes available and hundreds of colors, so you're bound to find one you love. ...read more
