We have all been there. Excitedly removing the cover, gently pulling off the cap, slowly twisting the base and marveling at our new lipstick. We swipe it on, only to find that the color doesn’t seem to look the way it did at the store.
Lipstick shopping, although exhilarating, can prove to be quite the daunting task. With tons and tons of options available, and the constant bombardment of expert and not-even-close-to-being-an-expert advice, it is real easy to end up feeling lost and dazed.
MAC lipsticks seem to be the belle of the ball. Their collection of lipsticks is huge, and trying to pick one, or even two, can get overwhelming.
So here’s a list of 10 MAC lipsticks that you might want to be on the lookout for:
1. MAC Patisserie
Here is a shade for regular wear. Patisserie is a lustre finish lipstick, perfect for people who like glossy finish. It is a lovely nude pink color, and glides like butter on the lips. Since the coverage is sheer, the color lasts for approximately three-four hours and suits almost any skin tone.
2. MAC Sunny Seoul
Next on the list is this pink shade – a shade that is absolutely perfect for spring. It is a warm toned pink lipstick, with a peach undertone in a crème sheen finish. If your skin tone is on the deeper side, the shade might wash off a bit. So, you can opt for a lip pencil closer to your skin tone and apply lipstick over it. But for people with pale skin tone, the Sunny Seoul shade is just what they need.

3. MAC Watch Me Simmer
Corals are very much in. So is this bright coral shade that screams nothing but summer to me! The warm undertones of this shade make it ideal for evening wear. It can’t be your regular office wear. Top it with a shimmer lip gloss for a glam look and watch those eyes follow your lips.
4. MAC Cosmo
The MAC Cosmo lipstick is one of those must-haves on my list. This is a wonderful pink shade from MAC. It isn’t the regular pink; it is a muted pink that almost saves your day every time. The texture of this lipstick is amplified and that makes it pigmented. One swipe of it and you are good to go. For more intensity, apply 2-3 coats. The color lasts for approximately 3 hours. When it starts wearing off, it leaves behind a nice tint that you would absolutely love. You can also pair it up with a lip pencil of the same color.

The bright pale pink shade is from the Viva Glam Collection by MAC. It is super hot and super chic! It is sure to bring out the Barbie girl in you. The matte finish is super long lasting. People with deeper skin tones can pair this up with a darker lip pencil, and people with lighter skin tones can use a lip pencil that is the same color as the lipstick. You may consider this your summer color.

9. MAC Party Parrot
This bright lippie with warmer undertones from MAC is a super chirpy color. The neon-coral is so gorgeous that it oozes confidence. It truly calls out to all the party animals. The shade lasts for approximately 3-4 hours as it is matte in texture. It might be a little drying, so wear a lip balm or a lip conditioner underneath.
10. MAC Angel
This soft pink is nice and subtle, but it might wash out deeper skin tones,so its best to pair it up with a darker lip pencil it is ideal for the people with lighter skin tone . This MAC angel lipstick has a good staying power and gives a frosty finish. It can be used for regular wear or general outings.
