MAC Velvet Mattes Collection included nine deep, vampy shades of lipstick with “matte” finishes, though I’d say more like a satin to natural finish with fine pearl throughout most shades in the collection. I think they did fairly well, given that they were more comfortable than not, very rich in pigmentation, and deep in hue. Some shades had room for improvement, though I suspect that a fair number of people will pair these deeper shades with lip liner to get really crisp, clean edges, which would solve some most of the issues.
