MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Velvet Teddy is my go-to MLBB shade in a bullet and I wear this at least once a week. It was the first MAC lipstick I bought and I'm now on my third tube. Like the other MAC lipsticks I own this is relatively long wearing and comfortable, not drying and highly pigmented.

MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Russian red is a lovely bright red that doesn't pull pink on me, which I find to be a problem with most reds as I have yellow undertones. Like the other MAC mattes I own this wears comfortably for long periods of time and does not feather or apply patchy.

MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Sin is my ideal dark red, not pink at all and extremely pigmented. Applies smoothly and wears for 4+ hours comfortably.

MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Really pigmented and easy to apply, comfortable to wear and long lasting. I found it difficult to find a true purple lipstick that wasn't a really dark pink, and this fits the bill. Doesn't feather and isn't patchy.

MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Whirl is a lovely rosy nude that goes with most looks, bold or subtle. As always I love the MAC formula, I find it easy to apply and relatively long lasting for a bullet.

MAC matte lipsticks are my favourite formula to wear and I find them consistently good across the board. Taupe is the perfect reddy-brown shade that pairs really nicely with warm eyeshadow looks - its become my go-to when I can't decide what to wear. Goes on nicely and lasts for 4 hours easily without touching up. Not drying, very comfortable to wear.

I've never seen a colour like this. It makes me think of steampunk and sepia photos. It's a little bit gothy against my very pale skin (which is fine with me) and it lasts really well. I find it slightly drying as I do most mac lipsticks, but it's not painfully so.

I love MAC Satin finish; comfortable, but long lasting, no smudging or feathering (I would never buy Creamsheens again). I also love how plums and berry toned lipsticks suit me. The issue is that Rebel on my lips looks like a darker toned bright pink rather than a dark purple; no plum, maybe a hint of berry. I would have loved for it to have the tone it has on Christine lips swatch. I already have some plum hues in my natural lips, I just don't know where the pinkness comes from. Although the color isn't what I expected, it's a great lipstick. It's comfortable (as mentioned before), stains the lips so it doesn't require a lot of reapplication (will last through coffee, drinks, snacks, a light meal) and shows no signs of patchiness. The stain my lips is even, but it's also very easy to remove at the end of the day. The color has a nice subtle shine, but somewhat still matte. It's quite buildable, I can dab my lips gently for a subtle natural tint or swipe it twice for full opacity.

I really wanted to love this lipstick, but I don't. The retro matte formula of Ruby Woo is difficult to apply because it is extremely dry and tugs very hard on the lips. I found it especially difficult to apply on mature lips. The red shade is bright and pretty, but the color has no depth to it. It was very drying on my lips and though it stayed on pretty well, it was not nearly as long-lasting as I thought it would be based on reviews I've read. There's a different version of Ruby Woo in a special 2017 holiday mini set. Instead of being a retro matte, the mini is in MAC's regular matte formula, which is much creamier, making it easier to apply and more comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, it is a limited edition. I hope MAC releases Ruby Woo as a full size regular matte lipstick someday.

This is a fabulous purple lipstick! It goes on pretty easily and doesn't make me look yellow (which happens sometimes with purples). The scent is noticeable when you put it on, but fades pretty quickly. It doesn't have the best staying power and doesn't leave a stain behind which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. It was a little dry to apply but I didn't find it drying on my lips.

I have a ridiculous number of red lipsticks, but this is by far my favorite ever. It works beautifully for my skin tone, is beautiful, rich, and goes on easily.

Absolutely gorgeous fuschia lipstick! The version of Flat Out Fabulous that I am reviewing is the mini from the 2017 So Obsessed Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kit. The formula is different in this limited edition mini (matte) than in the full size (retro matte). It has a typical MAC matte consistency—creamy, easy to apply, dries down to a matte that's not too drying. It does transfer, but it also stays on very well, even through a meal. It leaves a pretty good stain behind on the lips, so when it starts to wear off, it isn't that noticeable. I first heard of Flat Out Fabulous from an Emily Fox swatch video on YouTube in which she said it was her favorite MAC lipstick. When it showed up as part of this mini kit, I decided it was time to try it. I have to say that it is now one of my favorite MAC lipsticks, too. It's bright fuschia, but not so bright that it looks cartoonish, and I can even wear it to work. I receive so many compliments whenever I wear it. I think this shade will look beautiful on most skin tones, from light to dark (I'm MAC NC20). I'll probably buy the full size version of this shade when I use up the mini. I'll be curious to see the difference in formula from matte to retro matte, and will update my review at that time.

I was conflicted about how many stars to give this lipstick. Stone is a strange shade because it looks brownish or taupe on some people, but on me it reads as a straight up gray. On the bright side, it goes on nice and creamy and stays on very well, but with my coloring (MAC NC20), it makes me look like a corpse. I recommend trying it on before buying it.

Colour: mid-tone red with a strong blue undertone that threatens to, but ultimately doesn’t, show up pink-tinged on my lips. Finish: this is more of a semi-matte than a true matte; it smooths the appearance of the lips. Application: it glides on like a satin lipstick, but is actually quite stiff; it takes 1.5 layers to be properly opaque. Wear: non-drying and lightweight on my easily dried and chapped lips; transfer is surprisingly minimal for how comfortable it is; can survive light meals and plenty of drinks without touching up.

This shade is so well pigmented that you don’t require multiple swipes and at the same time gives an even distribution of shade on the lips. It lasted on me for 7 hours. I am totally in love with this color. So , I am definitely recommending it!

On me, this shade looks bizarre and not very flattering, but I didn't buy it to wear by itself. I mixed it with MAC's very dark blue-purple Matte Royal lipstick to make a pretty medium blue. This mix lasted pretty well, even through a glass of wine, but when blue lipstick starts to wear, it's a lot more obvious than with a pink, red, or nude shade. So although this combination looked nice and fun, it was high maintenance.

I love this lipstick. It's a perfect metallic blue that fits my quirky character. It's easy to apply an d is comfortable to wear. The only negative is that you definitely need to apply more than 1 layer to get a good color.

Ok, here's where I disagree with (apparently) everyone! I am a huge fan of MAC lipstick dating back a couple of decades. I currently have more than 20 MAC lipsticks, mostly mattes and satins, with satins being my absolute favorite. MAC Rebel is a satin. I had high expectations with Rebel, but was left disappointed. The color goes on creamy and is an absolutely gorgeous, rich plum shade that is brighter on the lips than how it looks in the tube. The problem comes with time. It leaves behind a strong stain, but the lipstick wears off very unevenly and starts looking patchy after about an hour. I reapplied several times during the day, trying different techniques, such as blotting and reapplying. But the patchiness kept happening and hour or two later. I tried wiping it off and just going with the satin, but that, too, was patchy. Rebel is absolutely beautiful when freshly applied and I received quite a few compliments, but for me, this is a very high maintenance lipstick, something I don't expect from MAC satins, which usually stay perfect for many hours.

Matte Royal is deep blue-violet. It goes on creamy and smooth, no tugging. It is matte, but not too dry. It feels typical of a MAC matte. Because it is such a deep, cool color, it is hard to see in warm evening lighting, and can look almost black. This makes it a poor choice to wear for a night out at a bar if you're hoping to show off the blue color. To get the full effect of this lipstick, wear it during the daytime or where it will be brightly lit.

I bought this in the mini-sized version because although this is a shade I've had my eye on for some time, it's also similar to so many lipsticks that I already own. When I saw the mini version of Whirl, I decided to just go for it. At this writing, you can still get Whirl in the small size. This lipstick goes on very nice and creamy and lasts a long time, through hot coffee in the morning and then through lunch, with just a minor touchup. It's not drying or moisturizing, but it feels comfortable. When this little tube of Whirl runs out, I may buy a full size...but only after I use up some of my other pink-brown lipsticks.

I got the little mini-sized version of this lipstick. The vampy burgundy color is nice, but it is quite dry and tugs very hard when I try to apply it. I'm glad I didn't spend the money to buy the full size version.

A very well-named lipstick, as it reminds me of the color of chili powder. It looks beautiful on. It's matte, but comfortable. It lasted all day, with only one very minor touch-up after lunch. This makes a great addition to my collection of MAC reds, which also includes Lady Danger and Russian Red. Of the three, I find Chili to be the most wearable for the daytime.

What's so interesting is how this color reads so differently on each person and in each photo. What looks like a pinkish-lavender on both the MAC and Temptalia websites reads more of a blue-lavender on me. I was looking for a purple lipstick when I bought it, but the darker purples looked terrible on me. Men Love Mystery was perfect. It's very much a purple lipstick, but not dark enough to look ghoulish on me. It is a matte formula, and, therefore, is a bit drying, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. It lasts for many hours without a touch-up, and adds a really nice edginess to my makeup.

The color is really beautiful but this is super slippery so it don't last at all . If you like long-wering formula this is not a good choice but if you have super dry lips and you don't mind re-apply a lot, it's cool.
