It’s From Dama Edna collection, launched a lot of years ago but I’m still a huge fan! The texture is like a semi matte, because it’s not too dry. And the color is the most beautiful magenta ever made. Please MAC bring it again!

This really is a MLBB shade for me. It is just a tad peach and the right amount of pink. I just wish it was more long-lasting. (It wears for 2 hours on me)

I’m still learning about the right coloring for skintone and whatnot, but I really love this color. It is the perfect pink for me and lasts surprisingly long even compared to other MAC lipsticks.

I saw this lipstick in a blog once I passed a long time wanting it, and now that I have I can say that it’s a very weird lipstick. But I like it. At first the orange tone is a little bit off, but not enough neon, a very cold color, but then you blend it a little bit and pink comes out – and in pictures it looks great! So I’d say this color is on the orange-pink verge, very unique. As I said, it’s a nice lipstick for when you are going to take lots of pictures.

I love this lipstick. Its my favourite for day to day red wear, still true red but somehow more subtle, maybe its the warmer tones. I can wear this to work and it will stay on all day as long as I don’t eat something too greasy.
I have very pale pinky skin and this looks just as good on my dark olive skinned friend as it does me.

This is hands down my favourite red. I usually pair it with MAC Cherry lip liner to tone down how blue it is. I can wear this all day with no need to re-apply. It is a little drying but i hate the sticky feeling from some lipstick so this works for me.

If you’re into matte lipsticks, this is the best! This product looks great, might be a touch dry but it lasts forever even if you’re eating/drinking. My favourite red lipstick!

This is a lovely lipstick, just “nude” enough for me without being ghostly. It’s not something I can wear with a neutral eye, as it washes me out, but pairs well with a smokey or dramatic eye. Lovely texture and mildly hydrating too.

I love it! It’s the perfect classic red with a cool undertone. I think looks good on everyone. And it’s suuuuper matte, for me, looks beautiful. Also, it’s very dry, so, you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before apply ruby woo.

This is a very unique color. I wouldn’t call it orange but I’d rather describe it as light brown, tan leather color.
It works well with earth tone eye shades.

Crème Cerise
Skin Type: Dry, Undertone: Neutral

This is my perfect nude. Never have I ever encountered a lipstick that fit me so much; fit my lips so perfectly that it left me in total awe. I just started getting into MAC lipsticks this year and I thought after Fresh Brew, there couldn’t be a more perfect nude for me until Crème Cerise came along. I hate that MAC made this limited edition. I’ve fallen so head over heels in love with it that it hurts me to even use it now, knowing I’ll have to scramble to find another seller of it. Definitely worth every dollar and cent I paid for it. Bring this back now, MAC! I neeed it!!

I wanted to adore this and I just… don’t. Maybe its just mine, but it does that weird pilling/clumping on the surface of the lipstick. It just feels so dry! Also, perhaps its all the pink in my skin, but it pulls so brown-red on me.

Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I love this one. The color is perfect for daily use, but the shade it’s better for autumn or winter. I think looks better on light neutral skins. My favorite fact about this one is as the color is vanishing, the dyed lip stays.

Lady Danger
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I love this lipstick! It’s really easy to get a crisp line straight from the bullet with this formula. It never gathers or looks dry. It’s not moisturising, but it’s not drying either. I always prep my lips with MAC Lip Conditioner before I wear their mattes, blot my lips then apply the lipstick. After about 4 hours of wear I dab a tiny bit of Lip Conditioner over the top and that keeps my lips happy. I can skip that step without

On my NC20 skintone (I have neutral-to-warm undertones) it looks like a warm-toned red, super flattering and lovely. However on my NC40 friend, it looks straight orange (though just as lovely)! I was shocked to see it’s such a chameleon!

Russian Red
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I got this as a Back 2 Mac shade, almost as an afterthought – and I am impressed! It’s crazy pigmented, and the shade is so flattering – much more so than I expected.

It can be hard to get a crisp line straight from the bullet, and one does NEED a clear line with a shade like this. The upside is, it’s so matte that I can go outside my natural lip line and it will stay there. It’s not drying or hydrating – I dab a little lip conditioner over the top after about 4 hours and I’m good.

It really creates a classic, pin-up look – AND it does actually makes my teeth look whiter (no, really!!).

Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

Works very well with my yellow undertones and smaller, plumper lips for an everyday colour that branches out a little from the everyday beige/pinky nudes. It remains subtle but effective in making my lips look great plus brings out my blue eyes!

Ravishing
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

I feel like this IS a pretty lipstick, and the consistency and colour in the tube is lovely. It also seems to look great on everyone else… but me!? It just makes me look a little alien (in a bad way – not a Scarlett Johansson way unfortunately) so for that reason, it’s a little regret in buying it.

Lustering
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Lustering has to be one of my favourite lipstick colours from MAC. It is such a perfectly pretty berry-pink (as opposed to a milky pink) that I just love wearing. My only complaint is that as it is a Lustre (not a Frost, as it’s described above), it is not all that long-wearing. But I love it so much that I can overlook that one flaw a bit, though I am always on the lookout for something like Lustering but in a more long-lasting formula.

Angel
Skin Tone: Medium, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Pink

I found that this shade washed out my skin, just too pale for my liking. Not very long wearing at all and found it to be too drying on my lips, so I would recommend a lip primer or moisturise lips with a balm of some sort. Heard so many reviews boosting this shade so wanted to jump on board and try it for myself, now regretting my purchase.

Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Olive

LOVE! Absolutely beautiful colour – runs much more purple on me than on Christines lip swatch. Doesn’t require a lot of reapplication – just after a meal but it does tend to leave a deep pink stain on my lips the next day.

Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Olive

A beautiful orange-red with a true matte finish. Once it is on it will stay for an extremely long time but it does take a bit to apply as it is a very dry finish lipstick. I suggest applying a thin layer of balm shortly before application.

Chloe
Vegas Volt

I’m totally in love with this shade for spring, it’s my perfect coral; not too pastel but not too bright and leans more towards orange than pink. Application and wearability are excellent like most MAC lipsticks, it’s moisturising and doesn’t bleed. It applies well and is opaque in a coat or two giving even coverage. The finish is similar to other MAC amplified formulas, creamy and opaque with a slight sheen to the finish. The formula feels lightweight and moisturising on the lips, it really is a dream to wear.
It will last a good few hours and has will cope ok with moderate drinking and eating, I’ve managed a coffee and a snack without loosing all colour or getting the dreaded outer ring of colour but it’s not a ‘long lasting’ lipstick so don’t expect miracles.
Another excellent MAC lipstick.

Good red but makes me look older than my age. it looks super nice on Christine but turned “brownish-red”on me (and brown has never been a good lip color for me). I’m NC 15- NC 20 with yellow undertone. overall, a great product especially for girls with pink/neutral undertones.

A great blue toned red with gold micro-shimmer. It makes your teeth really white because of the blue in it, but because of the gold it makes it very wearable for a lot of people. I don’t like frosty lipsticks, and I don’t own any other Frosts from MAC, but this is really pretty and it’s hard to tell it’s even a frost. It’s quickly become one of my favorite red lipsticks.

I adore RiRi Woo’s pigment; it’s the perfect matte red color. RiRi Woo is very drying, however. Throughout the day, I need to reapply it multiple times also, but RiRi Woo is such a beautiful color; it’s definitely worth it.

Sounds Like Noise
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Pink

Naturally whenever someone as awesome as Hayley Williams does a collab with mac, I had to snatch this lipstick up as soon as possible. Although, the orange pigment is beautiful, the lipstick did leave more to be desired. I found that when first applying the orange didn’t look as good as it could without a good layer of primer. As it dried, the pigment seemed to concentrate/saturate and become much more noticeable, so I had to take it off and then reapply it thinner. Sounds Like Noise is such a beautiful true orange, however it takes a few wears to feel out exactly the right amount of primer and lipstick to wear to look optimum, but ultimately I would buy Sounds Like Noise again.

Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Normal, Undertone: Yellow

I am loving MAC lipsticks every time I buy but usually I make it a point to really check the color, because it might match my skin tone. As for their matte collection its a total rager and long lasting it also doesn’t dry the lips. Comparing to the cremesheen viand cremesheen is not that long lasting, you may want to re apply after an hour. As for satin viand, it is quite long lasting in the lips.

The thing that i like about MAC lipsticks is its very affordable.

Studded Kiss
Skin Tone: Tan, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Olive

Its a beautiful wine red color but I was displeased to find that this color has been released by MAC just with a different name. I hate when companies release the same product labeled with a new name. Studded Kiss is an exact dupe of MAC’s Fixed On Drama from the
Retro Matte Collection and Dark Side. And Riri Hearts MAC Heaux might be another dupe. I have yet to swatch that one side by side with Studded Kiss but I assume its dupable too. I guess it will be years before I have to go out and buy another wine colored lipstick.

Heroine
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Neutral

After having missed the boat with the last release of this gorgeous lip color, I thought I’d just have to let the idea go and either find a dupe or live without the perfect bright purple lipstick that I so craved. And then MAC heard my cries and released this into the permanent line! Huzzah!
I picked it up today and immediately applied it in the car. And it’s glorious. Even though it’s a matte shade, it doesn’t dry out my lips like their matte formula usually does. It’s actually quite weightless and comfortable.
It applies at full opacity with one swipe, but I have noticed that it is just ever so slightly patchy in the center of my bottom lip. I’ve not yet applied it over P+P Lip, however. I suspect it’ll perform better over that.
It’s super long-lasting. I’ve gone through a bottle of water and a hot tea and while there is transfer, it doesn’t migrate all over my mouth or look super-faded. It also does not feather, which is practically miraculous on me.
I’m so glad I picked this up. Violetta was a touch too sheer for my liking – I need full coverage on my not-pigmented-at-all lips. So the re-launch of this amazing color is a godsend.

Made to Order
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Yellow

One of the Lady GaGa shades, Made To Order is a frosted mauve gold that would be a YLBB shade (your lips but better) if you lived in the world of the glitterati. On light skin it has enough color to not look washed out. Applies evenly and is buildable to become really golden-frosty. A little less moisturizing than the rest of the line.

This is probably one of my favourite MAC lipsticks! The colour is a flattering light to neutral pink and works as an every day colour. The formula is creamy and moisturising, leaving a nice sheen on the lips. It’s not long wearing though (3 hours) , but that’s not an issue for me personally.
