  • "I was thrilled to hear that these were permanent when they were first released. The matte finish isn't as flat/dry as liquid lipsticks, but it doesn't have any sheen or shimmer. The colors are rich, opaque and apply evenly--the quality is among the top-tier of Mac lip products across the collection. If you've been wanting to give matte lips a try, these are a great start. " in 874 reviews
  • "I live for these! They're my favorite lipsticks! I honestly don't use any other lipsticks just because I haven't really found a formula to match these. Velvet teddy is my favorite one , perfect everyday color! They smell so good and apply so smooth! They are pretty long lasting but they do transfer. Pricing is a little bit pricey for a lipstick, they're about $17" in 871 reviews

Review for: Velvet Teddy, Please Me, Other more...
Many MAC lipsticks are really nice and I think for some of the pretty and unique colors they are worth the money. However, for some of the colors I think there are drugstore lipsticks with a similar finish and quality for a better price.

The MAC matte lipsticks are all very pigmented and you get full pigmentation on the first swipe without patchiness. The main issue with this is that there is some inconsistency in the formula among colors. Many of them are very comfortable to wear and they look nice and last a long time. Others (I'm looking at you, Ruby Woo) feel very dry on the lips, and they accentuate any dryness that you have on your lips and they just don't feel nice to wear, in these cases you would be better off saving your money.

I use this lipstick all the time, it works very well for short-term use. Since it is a matte product consumers should be aware that it’s very drying and I advise that you use some sort of chapstick before applying. Throughout the day it cracks and accumulates debris, it gets really clumpy and reapplication is necessary at least every 3 hours. The price is a little high for a lipstick that doesn’t last very long and I would suggest buying from Colourpop instead.

Review for: Russian Red, Kinda Sexy, Velvet Teddy more...
A classic. Everyone needs one (or more) of these little bullets. It's a great formula--lasts some time and stays bright
and even. Russian Red is such a classy red, and it never, ever fails to get me
compliments. However, it's a best to apply it with a lip brush (and maybe with
some lip liner) to keep your lines clean--it can be a bit smudgy in
application. Or maybe I'm just terrible at applying red lipstick. It can also
smudge during the day, but I'm pretty careless and that's likely more on me
than the lipstick.

Then there's Velvet Teddy. A classic brown-rose that
compliments a number of skin tones. Love swiping this on when I'm rushing out
of the house. I also own Kinda Sexy but it's anything but sexy on me: it pulls
very coral/orange on my lips and it's finally occurring to me that coral is
just NOT my look.

It's a good formula that's not really TOO anything, in a good way: not too drying, not too glossy, not too difficult to apply. Worth it, even more worth it when on sale, or with minis.

love my MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks. I have this little ritual where I buy myself a new lipstick, everytime I finish a new semester with good grades in law school. Because I recently finished my bachelor of laws, I wanted to spoil myself with two (!) new MAC lipsticks. I’m going to review them both, and this time I’m starting with MAC Mehr – a beautiful color which already became my new fave lippie. I honestly don’t know why I don’t hear more people about this lovely shade.

Review for: Matte Royal more...
I wanted to venture out of my comfort zone of non adventurous colors. Vampy lipsticks are my favorite, because I feel like darker skin tones can pull off the contrast for everday wear. Matte Royal was my first unconventional lipstick color and I'm in love with it! In some lightings it does look more purple than blue, but it is not a true blue anyway. Any skintone can pullnnthis color off in my opinion. Again, this color looks amazing on black women!

Review for: Russian Red, Please Me more...
These lipsticks are iconic and for good reason. They have a color for any skin tone and so many colors to suit any person. I love the range and the price, while it may seem high end, it pretty reasonable. They have so many finishes and colors that you can literally find a match of anything. I love the satin finish and the matte finish because they have good pigmentation. But I am also a sucker for a collaboration, because of the packaging.

this lipstick is honestly my favorite that’s not liquid! it goes on smoothly & opaque & it lasts a while. i have the color mehr and it’s my go to lipstick when i don’t wanna wear a liquid lipstick. not only that, but it smells really nice. my only complaint is that after a bit it can make my lips feel a bit dry, but since it’s a matte lipstick i figured it would. i still love it to death though and will be purchasing more colors in the future.

Review for: Velvet Teddy, Yash more...
MAC Lipsticks are iconic and I don't think any makeup collection is complete without at least one. Over the years many colors have come and gone in my collection and currently I have more than I can count.

The color selection of MAC's lipsticks is probably the widest range on the market and they have numerous finishes as well. My one complaint is that the quality of the formula seems to drastically vary depending on the finish -- and I believe quality should be the same across the board. I usually wear matte and I find sometimes they're matte formula to be a bit hard, making it somewhat difficult to apply.

The pigment of these lipsticks is out of this world, while for me the lasting power is just okay. I definitely have to reapply a few times throughout the day. I also love that you don't have to wear a lip liner with these lipsticks.

I will definitely continue to repurchase these!

I really really REALLY love this lip stick so much. It goes in super creamy and soft and stays on your lips for so long. This lipstick has a beautiful color and does not smell bad at all it actually smells a little bit like vanilla but it is not over powering what so ever. I also love the packaging for it it is super sturdy and not heavy at all. I would recommend this product to anyone an already have.

Review for: Please Me, Other more...
This is a wonderful lipstick. It has a truly matte finish, but it doesn't dry out my lips like some other matte lipsticks or lip stains do. It doesn't really smear, and it stays on for a few hours if you don't touch it. It does, however, wear off if you eat or drink, so you might want to have the lipstick with you to reapply when needed. It has a really nice creamy texture and amazing pigment. Over the years I have purchased many colors, from light nude to bright red (Russian Red is gorgeous!). I also like to mix some of the colors to achieve a desired shade - they are pretty easy to mix - and use lipgloss over the lipstick. The price is also very affordable, especially since the lipstick lasts a long time. Highly recommended!
