Over the time that I've been wearing makeup and started buying and collecting more I've gotten around 30 MAC lipsticks. The quality is really nice. They have a really light vanilla scent, the packaging is very sleek looking and I love when they have the limited edition tubes. Nearly all of them are comfortable to wear and I think they have a color for everyone. They come in a variety of finishes and I think I've tried just about all of them, they all feel really nice and moisturizing with the exception of a few matte ones that feel quite dry (Ruby Woo for example) but for the most part they feel really nice to wear. They do transfer or fade when you're eating and drinking so you will need to touch these up but MAC doesn't claim that they hold up all day (like some liquid lipsticks do), for a normal lipstick tube this is to be expected. I've switched to wearing mostly matte liquid lipsticks but I still wear some of my MAC ones, some of my holy grail lipstick shades are MAC like syrup (my favorite), velvet teddy, up the amp, rebel, and hang up. Over the years the prices have been slowly increasing as people are starting to spend more on other high end lipsticks but I think that generally these are worth the price.

Review for: Pure Zen, Pearly One more...
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

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.

I highly recommend that all lipstick lovers pick up at least one MAC lipstick if they haven't already! I remember the luxurious feeling of buying my very first one fairly recently. The lipstick bullets are sleek and modern, and look awesome in your acrylic lipstick holder. But that's not really the important part.

Review for: Velvet Teddy more...
I only recently started buying MAC lipsticks, and I am addicted! For me, the Matte Lipsticks are the best. Long-lasting and superior quality - I do not find them to be drying, but I always use chapstick first. I love Russian Red, but she will get on my teeth at least once - a beautiful blue-red that makes my teeth look whiter! She is the only one I have the teeth "issue" with, but I'm sure it has to do with her intense pigment. I wouldn't trade her for anything. Velvet Teddy is my favorite so far, I bought a small tube and simply adore her. She is a beige-nude, and I pair her with Doubletime pro longwear lip pencil (a pinky-brown nude). I also get many compliments on Sending Love (limited edition, a pinky-nude with high-shine cremesheen finish). Although I wish she were matte, I like this finish better than Satin. I thought I would love Twig, but it is a Satin finish. She did better with no chapstick and a more dry lip pencil , but is not my favorite.  I am patiently waiting on my order for Mehr (close to Twig, but more pink), Candy Yum-Yum, and Pink Plaid - all Mattes with blue undertones. Again, I love the durability and long-lasting wear of these lipsticks. I have trouble with many other lipsticks that make my lips tingle - there is an ingredient in "cheaper" ones that I react to. I have never had any issue with MAC or tarte, but MAC lasts all day.

Review for: Hug Me, Coral Optix more...
I purchased a set through Macy's a totall of 4 full size lipsticks for $23.00. It includes Nude du Jqur, Nouvelle Vogue, Russian Red, and Antique Velvet.
It's been awhile since I've purchased MAC lipsticks (I want to say more then +5 years), I have to admit they have totally up'd their game. I love these matte lipsticks they are creamy and won't dry your lips like other products. Usually when I apply matte lipsticks I have to use lip balm/ tint so that it won't settle in my lines but with these I don't have too worry 😄 Also their smell isn't bad at all (I've had some lipsticks that smell weird). Totally recommend this product to others.

Review for: Kinda Sexy, Faux more...
You can't go wrong with a mac lipstick. Mac has my all-time favorite formulas for lipstick and I find that there is one for everyone's needs. My favorite finishes are the satin and mattes. The matte formula is pretty comfortable for how long lasting and transfer proof it is. The satin formula is super comfortable and not as transfer proof but looks really good on the lips. One of my favorite things about these lipsticks is that they have so many colors that you're bound to find one that you LOVE. My favorite colors are Faux (satin) and Kinda Sexy (matte). Faux is a cool toned mauve pink that looks so natural and is a really good your lips but better color. Kinda sexy is a great warm-toned rosy nude that looks good with almost any look. Overall I think any mac lipstick is a good investment to make especially if your into makeup or have a gift card.

Review for: Quelle Surprise more...
I have always heard that Mac lipstick is the bomb! I have always wanted to own my own, but since the price is so high, I have never purchased one. I have tried my family's MAC lipsticks and I was in love. The colors are so bold and beautiful! I would be so ecstatic if I was given some Mac lipsticks for Christmas! If the price was a little bit cheaper, I would have every color they have. I love any type of lip product and would be more than happy to purchase this, but the price really does affect that and that is why I only have rated this product 4 stars.

Review for: Russian Red, Velvet Teddy, Media more...
I only currently own 3 MAC lipsticks in shades Velvet Teddy, Media and Russian Red and I have to say that I have never been more obsessed with a lipstick brand. Velvet Teddy is my ultimate favorite shade in which I am always throwing it on no matter what the occasion. I did recently lose it so I am in dire need to purchase it again. All 3 of the lipsticks go on so smoothly that I forget they are even on my lips in the first place! I will say that sometimes I find it hard to believe that each one costs $17.50 so I do not find myself buying them often, although when I do purchase one, I have not been upset! 
They are definitely worth the money and I will definitely be purchasing more in the future!

Review for: Russian Red, Twig, Sushi Kiss, Myth, Flamingo, Mehr, Heroine, Dubonnet, Peachstock, Whirl, Ruby Woo, Lady Danger more...
MAC lipsticks are my top favorite in the industry. I have been using them on myself and in my kit for almost two decades. Ruby Woo, Russian Red, Dubonnet, and Lady Danger are my top favorite red lipsticks. I can use them all on any skin tone, mixing in different lip liners creates a different look and combo. Myth and Peachstock are my go to nude colors, they are amazing. Sushi kiss and Flamingo are my favorite summer lipsticks bar none.  MAC Cosmetics Matte LipstickMAC Cosmetics Cremesheen LipstickMAC Lipstick

Review for: Velvet Teddy more...
Let's keep it short and sweet. Nothing can out-do a classic MAC Lipstick, in any shade. A MAC lipstick is a staple of every persons makeup kit, and it will forever be a timeless tradition. MAC does lipstick right, the texture and formula are unbeatable and extremely classic. Every makeup junkie knows the undeniable smell of a MAC lipstick. 

Velvet Teddy is my go to nude, and i recommend it for anyone fair to medium tones, it compliments the skin so nicely and is such a creamy and comfortable wear without budging (no worries about going to lunch with this lippie on!) If i was on a desert island and could only bring one lipstick, Velvet Teddy by MAC is the one!

Would the fact that a portion of all sales given to a charity make you want to purchase it more?
