15 Of The Best MAC Lipsticks Out There

1. MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy

Review

If you are into nude shades, Velvet Teddy is a gorgeous soft pink-toned nude that is great for daily wear. Despite being a matte formula, this lipstick glides smoothly onto the lips and is not drying. However, as it is a light color, it may enhance the look of chapped lips, so make sure you moisturize well before application. You can pair it with bold eye makeup or go for a natural “no-makeup” makeup look.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Long-wearing
  • Does not smudge, fade, or feather
  • Versatile color
  • Perfect for fair and medium skin tones
Cons
  • Duskier skin tones may look washed out, especially in photographs.

2. MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

Review

This cult-favorite shade from MAC’s Retro Matte range deserves all the spotlight it gets, partly because it looks stunning on all skin tones. This blue-red shade is insanely pigmented and has a true velvet matte finish that lasts forever. Since this is a matte formula, it helps increase the vibrancy of the color. However, its formula has a reputation for being a tad bit drying, so prepping your lips is a must before you go in with this color.

Pros
  • Long-wearing
  • Super pigmented formula
  • Does not transfer
Cons
  • Tends to tug your lips while applying.
  • If your lips are on the drier side, it tends to accentuate the fine lines on them.

3. MAC Matte Lipstick in Diva

Review

Diva is perhaps the prettiest intense reddish-burgundy shade out there that looks beautiful on just about every skin tone. This shade also has a matte finish, but it is not too drying and goes on smoothly, without being patchy (which tends to happen with darker shades a lot.) The color is extremely pigmented and is bang on for fall and winter trends.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Long-lasting
  • Comfortable on the lips
  • Does not transfer
Cons

None

4. MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel

Review

MAC describes Rebel as a midtonal cream plum shade. Its creamy formula features a soft cushiony feel, medium-to-full buildable coverage, and a satin finish. This berry color works on pretty much every skin tone and is especially perfect for fair, cool-toned skin tones. This color tends to leave your lips with a subtle, even stain, and it does not require a lot of touch-ups.

Pros
  • Long-wearing
  • Buildable color
  • Comfortable satin finish
  • Transfer-proof
Cons

None

5. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Topped With Brandy

Review

Topped with Brandy is a deep dirty rose that provides a splash of long-wearing color in a liquid-suede finish. The consistency of its formula is thin, smooth, and easy to spread across your lips for even coverage. Depending on your skin tone, this shade may look more or less cool-toned on your skin. However, it adapts to look flattering on you, regardless of whether you are an NC 15 or an NW 50.

Pros
  • Long-wearing
  • Extremely pigmented
  • Easy to apply
  • Sleek packaging
Cons
  • May dry out lips

6. MAC Lustre Lipstick in Capricious

Review

MAC’s Capricious is a lovely plum rose shade that is neutral yet slightly cool-toned. Its formula goes on sheer, and its color is extremely buildable. While it is sheer enough not to be a whole “look” on its own, it can be paired with a whole bunch of dramatic eye makeup looks.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Comfortable on the lips
  • Buildable color
  • Makes lips look plumper
Cons
  • Average staying power

7. MAC Frost Lipstick in Fresh Moroccan

Review

Fresh Moroccan is a warm brick red with a frosted finish. Its formula is non-drying and super easy to apply. It achieves its frostiness from highlights of gold pearls that give this color a very festive vibe. Its cinnamon color stands out beautifully against fair and pale skin tones.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • No bleeding or feathering
  • Transfer-proof
  • Long-wearing
Cons

None

8. MAC Matte Lipstick in Heroine

Review

If you fancy purple lipstick, Heroine from MAC is a true matte bright purple. This best-selling formula is creamy and smooth with a matte finish. It will leave you thinking of spring and flowers and is guaranteed to brighten up your face and outfit instantly. Yes, it is a bit daunting for those who don’t experiment, but if you tone down the rest of your face makeup, this color actually looks hella lit on just about anyone.

Pros
  • Long-wearing
  • Non-drying
  • Easy to apply
  • Suitable for all skin tones
Cons

None

9. MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red

Review

Russian Red is another one of MAC’s cult-classic shades. Although it is often compared to Ruby Woo, it is actually a cooler-toned, rich red shade. Now, we gotta tell you, this red has a certain depth that a lot of red lipsticks tend to lack. It is extremely versatile and tends to suit a multitude of skin tones. If you don’t already own this lipstick, you are seriously missing out!

Pros
  • Creamy texture
  • Easy to apply
  • Long-lasting
  • Buildable color
Cons

None

10. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in High Drama

Review

This deep dark plum from MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid line is one of the hottest shades at the moment if you are looking to make a statement with your lips. Its formula offers full coverage and leaves your lips with a true matte finish. This is one of the most fitting lip colors for fall and winter.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Smooth texture
  • Long-wearing
  • Applies evenly
Cons
  • Can dry out your lips

11. MAC Matte Lipstick in Mehr

Review

Mehr is a dirty blue-pink shade that makes for a great everyday color. Since it is a very subtle shade, you can pair it with smokey eyes or blush. The texture of this formula is creamy and smooth, and it does not leave your lips feeling parched like some matte lipsticks tend to do. This is a must-try for fair and medium skin tones.

Pros
  • Versatile
  • Easy to apply
  • Long-wearing
  • Does not flake or budge
Cons

None

12. MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig

Review

Twig is a soft, muted brownish-pink that is perfect for light to medium skin tones. Even though this is a nude shade, it happens to be on the warmer side and will not leave you looking washed out or dull. If you are looking for a lip color for daily wear or office wear, Twig makes for an excellent choice.

Pros
  • Creamy formula
  • Easy to apply
  • Feels comfortable on the lips
  • Long-wearing
Cons

None

13. MAC Amplified Lipstick in Smoked Almond

Review

Smoked Almond is a bright rose brown, and its formula holds intense amounts of pigment. So what you get is extreme color intensity, vibrancy, and clarity. Its luxurious gel base melts on contact, leaving you with fully saturated color in a single stroke. It is super saturated and creamy, but it does not emphasize dry patches or lines. If you have dry lips, this is one formula you might love!

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to apply
  • Long-wearing
  • Does not bleed or feather
Cons

None

14. MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in Burning Love

You get the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick, accompanied by a cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm.

Pros

  • Blurs lines and smoothes lips
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Long-lasting
Cons

15. MAC Amplified Lipstick in Brick-O-La

Review

Brick-O-La is a mid-tone berry with an amplified cream finish that lasts through the day.

Its creamy formula sits well on the lips and does not dry them out or accentuate dry patches. This shade is a must-try for pale to fair and medium skin tones!

Pros
  • Long-wearing
  • Easy to apply
  • Comfortable on the lips
  • Non-drying
Cons

None

That was our round-up of the 15 best MAC lipsticks of all time. While picking a lipstick shade, the first step is determining your skin tone and undertone. For instance, most people fall into one of two categories: warm or cool. Those with warm undertones have an olive or golden hue, while those with cool undertones tend to have fairer skin. If you have cool undertones, you should be careful with really light shades as they can wash you out. For warm undertones, the best lip colors are those in warm shades like orange or red.
