Not the best


This lipstick is constantly raved about and after trying it, it didn't live up to the hype. The velvet teddy colour is nice and neutral, good for every day but the lipstick aggravated my lips. Some drugstore brands are just as good as this and half the price.
  1. Love the matte look

    Perfect touch for a night out
  2. Best long wear lipstick


    I bought this lipstick in a shade velvet teddy because of the hype it was my 1st time using M.A.C lipstick and I am already in love .. I have worn it on my graduation day the colour was absolutely amazing in the photos and in reality and it's super long-lasting I did not need to apply it last more than 8 hours .. the shade looks amazing on my skin too I just can not stop recommending this product ...

  3. Love Love Love


    Velvet teddy is a cult fav for a reason! The perfect everyday nude that so flattering!
  4. So good!


    I love this lipstick so much! Velvet teddy is my everyday lipstick colour it is just the perfect shade! Highly recommend!
  5. My everyday lipstick

    Sandy Shehata

    Great lipstick that lasts quite well throughout the day! Velvet teddy is my go to everyday lipstick I absolutely love it and would highly recommend!
  6. Love it


    I like the Chili very much, I only apply a thin layer that it would look very natural and match my warm skin.
  7. Velvet Teddy


    I was recommended velvet teddy as an all rounder, and isnt it what?! I have light to medium skin tone and really enjoyed this lipstick. Another great Mac lipstick.

    Make up crazy

    A beautiful hue, makes me feel pretty, lasts & lasts & lasts - seriously. Once its set I get to forget, I HATE high maintenance lipsticks that need to be checked every 30 mins. these dont, in fact can be quite hard to remove without using proper cleanser - but if I want a lipstick that stays put, then I cannot complain if it needs cleansing on its own. The pro's are so good

    Makeup Crazy

    Theres something about this hue that I find makes me feel pretty & is a lot of fun.I love the matte lipsticks best - if I want to gloss them up then they respond well to clear gloss, but a matte lipsticks, once I set I get to forget bc I dont need lipsticks that need to be reapplied or checked on every hour. These are low maintenance & Ive found MAC lipsticks to excel. They also need to be taken o...

  10. Red good; not long wearing


    The red color is really good; I think I prefer it to chanel; yet chanel like sits better for longer and is easier to apply; I like the look of this; but it doesn’t sit too well after awhile- flaking and looking awful after a bit; doesn’t apply too nicely; other than that it’s good.
  11. Not drying


    I love MAC matte lipsticks. My lips dry out sooo easily and I don’t have any issues with these lipsticks. And the colours are gorgeous. I just keep buying more of them!
  12. Velvet smooth & full coverage


    I really love these lipsticks from MAC. Velvet Teddy is a deep beige-y toasted sand. It goes on really easily for full coverage and lasts well. These are true lipsticks though, and will transfer / smudge accordingly.
  13. Amazing


    I love this, it's one of my favourite lipsticks and I enjoy wearing it all the time. Great by itself or with some gloss on top to switch it up.
  14. classic


    favourite lipsticks - i have them in multiple nude shades and love them!!
  15. My go to!


    I have a huge collection of the MAC bullet lipsticks, the formula is my fav and it lasts all day, velvet teddy is my go to shade!
  16. Big Fan of Formula


    This has quickly become my favourite everyday lipstick. Such a beautiful matte formula while still looking fresh. Quite long lasting.
  17. Beautiful shades


    This is a classic matte formula, but drying and quite pigmented, exactly what you’d expect. Where this lipstick shines is in the gorgeous shade range, Marrakesh and Chilli are two of the most flattering lipsticks ever for warm and warm-olive skin tones. If I want to feel simply beautiful then this is the lipstick I go for.
  18. Nice colour but dried my lips out.


    I have this in Velvet Teddy, which is my first and only matte formula lipstick from MAC, and while I loved the colour, it dries my lips out way too much. I would feel the dryness even the day after wearing it so I've stopped using it altogether. I honestly haven't even reached for it in months. I could wear a lip balm under it but that would defeat the purpose of a matte lipstick.


    I've always loved the performance and quality of MAC lipsticks and velvet teddy is definitely a stand out. Great pigmentation and non drying, it's perfect for every day or glam looks. I have dark olive skin and this shade perfectly compliments my skin tone, I can even wear it with a bare face,
    I'll definitely be repurchasing in the future!
  20. Nice colours, Ok formula


    I got this lipstick in chilli and Marrakesh, to very flattering colours for warm skin that I adore. The formula of this is however, extremely lacklustre, a straightforward matte, slightly drying lipstick. I recommend exfoliating and hydrating your lips well before wearing this.
  21. All-time favourite!


    Velvet teddy is my perfect nude! I always have it in my collection :D
  22. Lady Danger


    MAC lipsticks are my go-to - I won't wear any other brand. Lady Danger is the most gorgeous matte orange-red shade. Love wearing this or Russian Red when I'm doing a full face of glam
  23. Lovee


    I see why there's a hype to teddy velvet,in love with the colour.
  24. Great color and highly pigmented


    This lipstick is highly pigmented and long wearing, it doesn’t leave your lips dry even though it’s a matt formula. It goes perfect with MAC lip-liners as the colors are true to swatch. It’s in my hand bag to stay
  25. Velvet Teddy - Beautiful everyday nude, V drying formula.


    The shade (velvet Teddy) is so beautiful and absolutely perfect for everyday wear or a night out. The lipstick felt creamy going on my lips but I find these Mac lipsticks incredibly drying and I end up with very chapped, dry, peeling lips.
    I so badly wanted this to be an everyday lipstick but because it is so drying it absolutely doesn't work for everyday use.
    I've found other matte li...

  26. Lady Danger - Fire Orange Red but V Drying


    LOVE the colour! I had to search far and wide to find a shade like this! I naturally have a lot of pink pigment in my lips and EVERY red lipstick I would put on would come out looking that cool toned pink red! I wanted a RED RED! An orange red! Finally I put this on and.. VA VOOM, I had my RED lipstick, that truly felt RED and not pink! I do find this shade can make my teeth look a l...

  27. Cant go wrong


    Got the classic Velvet Teddy shade, best terrecotta every day nudey brown. Smooth and creamy, stays on all day. Issue is smells a bit like play-dough after a while
  28. Alright


    First time buying mac lipsticks and while the shades were nice, they were quite drying and definitely need to exfoliate/moisturise prior. As the title suggests, they were alright
  29. Holy grail lipstick


    Absolute classic. You can’t go wrong with a Mac matte lippy, I have been repurchasing for years. The best range of colours especially when it comes to nude and brown shades. Extremely matte and long lasting without drying out your lips and causing them to flake. Lipstick glides on almost like a cream but super bold and opaque. I have tried many over priced lipsticks but I always tend to come bac...

  30. A classic for a reason


    Matte but not drying, this lipstick is a classic. It has a thick consistency and is true to colour, unlike some matte lipsticks which seem to darken over time after application. The colour choice is phenomenal. It lost half a star because sometimes it pills after too many reapplications.
  31. Velvet teddy


    I tried this in velvet teddy. Definitely a gorgeous neutral tone and would suit most skin types.
  32. Comfortable matte


    I love this lipstick in the shade Chili. It is a non-drying matte, however I would recommend exfoliating your lips and applying a nourishing lip balm before using this. Excellent colour payoff and glides on easily.
  33. Great shades


    I purchased the mac shade-honeylove. I usually buy natural/organic lipsticks, but I thought I'd give a high end brand a go, and I really like it. I love the shade range and I cant wait to try more colours.
  34. You cannot beat MAC lipticks


    They are hyped for a reason because they are perfect!
  35. so good


    such a nice colour and comfortable to wear
  36. Great!!


    SO worth the hype!!!
  37. Love the Taupe


    I have this lipstick in Taupe and I love it. It is easy to apply. It feels comfortable on the lips and its a great colour.
  38. nice colour choices


    dry but good collection of colour choices
  39. chilli


    chilli is the best colour I like from MAC matte lipstick, it stays long and water proof. doesn't look oily.
  40. Perfect lipsticks


    I love Mac Lipsticks, Marrakech and Chili are my favorite shades, they are perfect. As long as you do lip care, this lipstick is perfect.
  41. Love mac Lippies!


    I brought the honeylove shade and honestly found it to be a perfect nude shade, can easily be worn daily. The formula is nice & comfortable. I dont find it drying at all which is a real bonus as i cant wear the really drying lip formulas, they crack on my lips. It is moisturising & also has a good lasting power. Worth the price & is a staple in my beauty bag.
  42. Literally my favourite lipsticks


    I only use MAC lipsticks. The shades are great, the packaging is sweet and simple, the price tag is decent and they last for ages!!
  43. OG of lipstick


    I love MAC's collection of lipsticks. They are very pigmented and not overly drying like other matte lipsticks. My favorite shades are Velvet Teddy which is a beautiful pinky/ brown color suitable for day wear and Taupe which is a fantastic 90's brown. Love!
  44. not too drying


    i have now bought almost all of the shades from this range and it never disappoints me. it is hydrating on the skin and is not too drying. i love how it glides on the skin soo smoothly. super pigmented shades.
  45. Subtle but striking!


    Such a beautiful everyday wearing lipstick
    Matte finish but doesn't dry out my lips
  46. Taupe


    I currently own only three lipsticks and MAC Taupe is one of them. The formula is light and the smell is so nice. I like to pat the lipstick onto my lips with my finger. I'm NC25 and Taupe is a beautiful all year round color...it's bricky red brown and looks beautiful when sheered out for a day look. It brightens up my face when I'm only wearing eyeliner and mascara, no shadow.
  47. Another amazing shade purchase!


    I recently purchased Honeylove and wore it out and I love it! It’s similar to velvet teddy but lighter so gives you a different look. Again with all the lipsticks the consistency is so nice and so comfortable to wear. I need more!!
  48. Great staple lipstick


    I love the mac matte lipstick - it lasts a long time, applies smoothly and has beautiful flattering colours. However, I would suggest those who have dry lips apply a thick layer of lip balm before use or choose to use one of the other mac lipstick formulas that are less drying.
  49. Great lipsticks, not a bad price either


    I purchased Velvet Teddy and I look forward to everytme I get to wear it!! Not too drying, the perfect matte! Such a nice nude colour as well! I want them all!!
  50. yes


    can you ever go wrong with a mac lipstick? I wore yash on wedding day with spice lip liner and love it.
  51. Perfect


    I love this matte lipstick! It doesn’t dry out my lips and has such good coverage! It is not a “16 hour” lip stain but does do the job!
  52. Perfect


    I love this matte lipstick! It doesn’t dry out my lips and has such good coverage! It is not a “16 hour” lip stain but does do the job!
  53. Silky smooth


    These lipsticks are so smooth and silky when being applied on the lips. They last ages and have a beautiful colour! My fav is velvet teddy
  54. Holy grail lipstick


    Velvet teddy ! Omg what an amazing shade and the pigment is incredible. The formula on these lipsticks is hands down wonderful
  55. Classics


    I have the shades Honey Love and Velvet Teddy and was surprised by how long they actually stay on for. Always wear on nights out. Definitely a bit pricey for my student budget, but love them nonetheless.
  56. Staple lipstick


    Mac lipsticks are famous for a reason - stunning colour and long lasting formula. My must have shades are honey love and velvet teddy - perfect nudes for day AND night wear!
  57. The best lipsticks for every skin tone!


    My favourite lipsticks of all time! Beautiful matte finish, they aren't drying on the lips, and the shade range is incredible something for every skin tone in there.
  58. Not the best


    This lipstick is constantly raved about and after trying it, it didn't live up to the hype. The velvet teddy colour is nice and neutral, good for every day but the lipstick aggravated my lips. Some drugstore brands are just as good as this and half the price.
  59. The best lipsticks in the world


    My favourite formula for lipsticks and super easy to apply and carry in your purse for easy application.
  60. good lipstick


    i like mac lipsticks in general, but i find the matte formula to be quite dry but it is long lasting. i usually wear these on night out when i want them to last longer but for everyday i wouldnt use these as its not really comfortable.
  61. Honey love = holy grail!!


    Ive been using these lipsticks since I can remember and the never disappoint! Some shades especially the darker ones are a little too matte and can be drying but the nude shades are the perfect consistency! Honey love is the best nude ever and I also love velvet teddy for something slightly darker or for when im fake tanned.
  62. Drying and different colour


    I have heard such great things about this lipstick, but after trying it I found it really drying. I know it's matte, but I have tried other matte lipsticks that are much more moisturising. Also, I find the colours to be quite different on my lips than how they actually look, which is a shame. I don't mind the Chili tint but it's a bit too vibrant on me.
  63. Smooth


    Super smooth application and lasts hours. doesnt ball up like other matte lipsticks and has a super creamy formula!
  64. Powerful lipsticks


    I would definitely recommend MACs lipsticks. They create such powerful pigment and leave a lasting colour on the lips. I do find that they can be quite drying however when used in conjunction with MACs lipbalm this is no longer an issue.
  65. Torally love these lipsticks


    I love my lip products and have tried many mid to high range brands as well as pharmacy brands back in uni days. I always come back to Mac for lipstick and their matte lipsticks are one of my favourites. For reference I’m an NC 40-42 in Mac foundation and chilli, mehr, diva, lady danger, taupe are great matches for my skin tone.
  66. Beautiful


    The perfect matte lipstick! Lasts so long and feels great on the lips!
  67. all rounder


    so smooth, glides on really nicely. there’s a lovely colour and they don’t dry out my lips. a great formula!
  68. Great Colours, Dries Lips


    I love the colour range. Mac lippies are a classic. I do find that if your lips are not well prepped, the lipsticks can be very crying. (esp the matte finishes)
  69. Trusty favourite


    Velvet teddy is one of my all time favourite lipsticks. Has a beautiful creamy consistency while remaining semi matte. It's not too drying and a very versatile colour.
  70. Good colors but drying


    They have a lot of great colors but I found for myself that the texture can be a bit drying. I felt I always needed to put a light layer of lip balm before this lipstick.
  71. Glides so smoothly


    Glides very smoothly on the lips! Although since it is matte, best to moisturise the lips (lip balm, etc) before applying, otherwise it sinks in to cracks and makes it looked chapped.
  72. This colour is perfect!


    This colour is honesty perfect, it’s such a beautiful texture and doesn’t dry out my lips like some other lip sticks do.
  73. Best matte lipstick


    I am in love with these Mac lipsticks. They are beautiful on the lips, the colours are amazing and they are so moisturizing
  74. OG Lipstick


    These lipsticks have been my ride or die for over 10 years. Wear them everyday and could not fault them if I tried!

    Favourite shades;
    -Please Me
    -Velvet Teddy
  75. Love!


    I love the MAC matte formula. It feels and looks amazing on the lips. It is not a drying formula so I love it. Velvet teddy is a shade everyone has to try.
  76. Honeylove is worth the hype


    Honeylove is absolutely worth the hype! Shoutout to Chantelle Baker and Rozalia Russian who sold me on this one, the colour is amazing and suits me when I'm fair and in my usual loving tan colour!
  77. Honey Love Lipstick


    Honey love is a gorgeous nude colour that suites my natural extremely pale skin tone and even suits me when I have a super dark stray tan. Only took 1 star off as it is quite drying and I have lines in my lips which can make it look gross. But I’m sure if your lips were more full and hydrated than mine you wouldn’t have that problem :)
  78. velvet teddy


    so beautiful on a variety of different skintones, so in love with this smooth and creamy matte formula
  79. oldie but a goodie


    best matte lipstick, lasts forever and have a great price point.
  80. Go to lipstick


    The Mac Matte formula is my go to lipstick formula, the shade Velvet Teddy is always in my handbag ready to go. They feel comfortable on, last quite a while, and have a nice vanilla scent.
  81. old time favourite


    You really can't go wrong with this lipstick, the formula is great and timeless
  82. My favourite brand of lipsticks!


    Every MAC lipstick I've tried is extremely moisturising, light and pigmented. Even better now that they've reduced their price. I have no bad things to say!
  83. So creamy


    Love these lippies as they are so creamy, pigmented, easy application. The colour velvet teddy is my favvvv
  84. Great colours


    Great colours in this collection of lipsticks. My favourites being Velvet Teddy and Taupe for that perfect everyday nude. However they are slightly drying on lips and needs a good lip balm underneath. I recommend Burts Bees in Honey, as they are not oily and absorb fast.
  85. Matte Lipstick


    Just received this lipstick in Velvet Teddy. It is great!!! Great colour choice for my olive skin tone and love that the matte lipstick goes on so smoothly.
  86. Amazing application


    Applies so smoothly and lasts all day
  87. Best matte lipstick i have used


    I usually dont like matte lipsticks as they make my lips look dry but this one doesnt. I have olive skin and the shade Diva is beautiful!
  88. Down to an art


    It's a beautiful colour and the staying power is amazing. It is however drying on the lips so I use lip balm before applying this.
  89. a comfortable lipstick


    These lipsticks are super comfortable on the lips - I find that they do tend to try out my dry lips and grab to dry areas however, pairing this with the Lip Prep+Prime has worked marvellously for me. I also really like using this as a cream blush - very easy formula to blend out and packs a lot of pigment! My favourite shade is definitely Brick-O-La!
  90. In love


    The ultimate matte lipsticks. They smell amazing and look amazing too. Very moisturising and apply great. Not drying
  91. can be drying


    good matte lipstick however it can be too drying and crusty on the lips. colours are amazing though.
  92. Soar


    Soar is such a beautiful colour and suits all skin tones. Lasts all day but can be a bit drying on the lips. With MAC lipsticks, I have found the key is to exfoliate lips before applying lipstick.
  93. Amazing lipsticks!


    I absolutely love Mac lipsticks. They’re such good quality I find they apply so much more smooth and easier than you’re average lipstick and the colours are so broad so you can get a natural colour or a bold colour and they’re all so beautiful and look great on. 100% recommend for the price point.
  94. Ok


    Creamy, easy to apply and lovely colour.
  95. My new favourite


    Act natural is one of the best shades I own! For night times I really pile it on with a lip liner and looks so good with a bronzer and during the day I apply a light cover with some gloss which gives a nice subtle nude lip.
  96. Best matte formula ever!


    MAC has the best matte lipstick formula! It is amazing. I absolutely love it. It does not feel drying on the lips and looks amazing. My favourite shades are honey love, velvet teddy, whirl, soar and please me. Also, love the new price tag!!
  97. balls up


    This lipstick never sets nicely and always balls up,l I always have to end up taking it off
  98. Lovely shades

    Emma Loves Makeup

    I have used MAC lipstick for years and love all the colours they bring out! It looks lovely on. My only cons are that it is a bit exxy and it is drying on it's own. I usually layer on top of a lip balm or put a moisturising gloss on top.
  99. Great colours, drying on the lips


    Can’t go wrong with the colours and the payoff, but as an all night lipstick I do find they are quite drying.
  100. Love the colour


    Got this in Kinda Sexy and it is such a great colour. Very flattering for my skin tone. If I layer this with the right kind of lip balm it sits great, otherwise on it's own it's a little drying.
