Great lipsticks, not a bad price either

Most Helpful Criticism

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.

  2. yes


    can you ever go wrong with a mac lipstick? I wore yash on wedding day with spice lip liner and love it.
  3. 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!

  5. 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
  6. Holy grail lipstick


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


    verified purchaser
    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.
  8. 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!
  9. The best lipsticks for every skin tone!


    verified purchaser
    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.
  10. 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.
  11. The best lipsticks in the world


    My favourite formula for lipsticks and super easy to apply and carry in your purse for easy application.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Smooth


    Super smooth application and lasts hours. doesnt ball up like other matte lipsticks and has a super creamy formula!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Beautiful


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


    so smooth, glides on really nicely. there’s a lovely colour and they don’t dry out my lips. a great formula!
  20. 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)
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
  26. 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
  27. 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.
  28. 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!
  29. 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 :)
  30. velvet teddy


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


    best matte lipstick, lasts forever and have a great price point.
  32. 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.
  33. old time favourite


    You really can't go wrong with this lipstick, the formula is great and timeless
  34. 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!
  35. So creamy


    Love these lippies as they are so creamy, pigmented, easy application. The colour velvet teddy is my favvvv
  36. 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.
  37. 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.
  38. 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!
  39. 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.
  40. 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!
  41. In love


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


    good matte lipstick however it can be too drying and crusty on the lips. colours are amazing though.
  43. 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.
  44. 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.
  45. 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.
  46. 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!!
  47. balls up


    This lipstick never sets nicely and always balls up,l I always have to end up taking it off
  48. 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.
  49. 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.
  50. 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.
  51. Great!


    The only lipstick i will wear so easy to apply and lasts ages! All the colours are soo beautiful!
  52. Pretty


    Kinda sexy is a light coral colour, it looks nude on my medium olive completion.
    It is very pretty but I'd suggest buying a slightly darker lip liner with it if you have a skin tone like me.
  53. Amazing


    I always use a lip ointment before lipsticks and this lipstick lasts all day and it looks beautiful on my lips
  54. my favourite lipstick


    I own so many mac lipsticks, the matte version is my favourite.

    They are super comfortable on the lips, and they last forever.
    Plus they are very affordable, and comparable to the super high end expensive lipsticks.

    For someone that is pale like me, my favourite colours of the matte shades are velvet teddy and kinda sexy.
    However I have to point out that ...

  55. Nudes to Die For!


    Mac lipsticks are great. I love the colours and the consistency. I don't wear lipstick all that often but I do enjoy it here and there and when I do Mac and Nars are my go to! I prefer a more natural look so I always love the natural, nude colours.
  56. So Pretty and Moisturizing


    I have always loved MAC cosmetics and I wanted a color that would be neutral for work. I fell in love with the color and it left my lips soft throughout the day without drying them out and the color lasted. Will definitely purchase more to keep on hand and other colors for nights out!
  57. Worn every day for nearly two years


    I love the colour Honey Love - I can't imagine heading to work without it. While it is a bit drying, it lasts for a long time and the pigment is amazing!
  58. Velvet Teddy


    I wear this lipstick most days and it doesn't dry out my lips.
  59. Too many choices on colors!


    I really like some colors from this and I bought a few of this brand. It has a good coverage and last a long time, but it's too dry for me. I have to use lip balm first before I use it.
  60. Love the color!


    My skin tone is medum-deep golden, I though this would be too bright. But I was wrong, the color looks good on me and last at least 5 hours after an application the morning.
  61. Good


    Smooth texture, easy to apply and lasts awhile. Beautiful colour.
  62. The best!


    Mac lipsticks are just amazing, amazing and amazing. I particularly love Velvet Teddy just fabulous. My next purchase would probably go towards the Red's to see how they are! so far very positive about Velvet Teddy, such a smooth application
  63. Good


    a bit drying, but I love the pigmentation and deep mauvish plum looks good.
  64. Last long enough


    Last long enough - longer than your drugstore lipsticks, but i prefer my Nars, Chantecaille etc as it lasts much longer on my lips. Maybe price really does make a difference to quality...
  65. Velvet teddy


    My all time favourite lippie and colour, velvet teddy! Such a beautiful natural shade stays put all day and looks amazing
  66. OG lipsticks


    Such a great lipstick. Great range of shades and finishes. Last a couple of hours, as long as your not eating too much with it
  67. Love Mac lipsticks


    I absolutely love Mac, matte lipsticks. Velvet teddy is a favourite shade of mine. The packaging is nice and sleek. The formulation is lovely and feels nice on the lips.
  68. beautiful lipstick


    Mac lipstick have one of the best formulas. Also they have a great shade range. I love the classic velvet teddy and also mehr. I think those are the classic that everyone just loves. The formulas is matte and hydrating one the lips . I think I have 6 -7 Mac lipsticks
  69. Double fudge


    the only deep color that i will ever wear. very nice formula, i usually get eczema on my lips but this never dries out my lips. i totally adore it
  70. Lady Danger & Diva are must-have reds!


    Lady Danger is my favourite colour in this lipstick. It is like a red-orange-coral colour. I am quite fair (blue eyes and blonde hair) and the colour works so well (better with a bit of light tan). Diva is a darker burgundy colour and is amazing for night-time events. looks great on blondes! My friends now use it after using mine.
  71. Long lasting


    The MAC matte lipsticks are my go to for colour and wear! They last quite a long time before having to reapply due to their matte finish. Teddy and Honeylove are my favourites for a nude lip.
  72. Fav


    My fav kind of matte. Non-drying and looks beautiful. Lasts long as well.
  73. Velvet Teddy - very deep nude for fair skin


    Good quality, this colour has a hint of pink so it's not the old-fashioned kind of brown. Very wearable for all occasions, I'm sure it will suit most if not all skintones. On me it lasts many many hours, but lipsticks tend to stay longer on me than everyone else anyway!
  74. wicked


    I love the Mac lipsticks, the best on the market by far and they smell awesome
  75. Classic MAC formula, I own many!


    This finish is great, it is matte which is the look I prefer, however is not too drying!

    I own it in a few shades, my favourites are Velvet Teddy and Taupe. Work perfectly on my NC 25-30 skin tone. I can also pull off whirl.

    Honey Love is NOT good for my skin tone, it is far too light for my naturally pigmented lips.
  76. Favourite lipsticks ever


    I have so many Matte shades, they are my favourite finish and my all time favourite lipstick. I have been building up my collection for years now. They are creamy yet matte and long wearing, don't feather. Beautiful packaging and range of shades. Last for agesss and also a lovely pressie. My only small criticism is you need to make sure you exfoliate your lips if they are dry, but I guess that's f...

  77. Best matte lipstick


    Mac has the best matte lipsticks i've ever used, strongly recommend!
  78. Good


    Love MACs matt range but colour doesn't stay on long. The matt look and colour is beautiful though.
  79. Favourite formula


    The MAC lipstick formula is my favourite. Their matte formula feels very nice on the lips, it is not drying at all. It looks matte, however feels nice and creamy on the lips. Has a very nice staying power as well. I have the shades velvet teddy and honey love which are absolutely gorgeous!!!
  80. Hero Product.


    Can't complain with this product. This is a creamy, non-drying, high quality lipstick with a good amount of colour pay off.
  81. Creamy lipstick


    these lipsticks are great they come in a range of colors and great for day or night! creamy texture doesn't dry out your lips!
  82. Lovely smell


    Love Mac lipsticks, glides on smoothly, smells fantastic, doesn’t dry out my lips and have only needed a quick touch up in ten hours of work! Have multiples of whirl and verve - great neutrals.
  83. Great lippy


    Great colour range and love the matte finish. The lipstick can be a bit drying at times due to the matte finish, but it's long-lasting and looks fantastic.
  84. Great


    I like the bright coral colour lady danger .formula is non drying and matte .
  85. my go to


    I dont wear lipstick often but when i do this is my only repurchase. Velvet teddy seams to go with any occasion, skin tone and glides on perfectly. Easy to touch up.
  86. Non drying


    Super creamy application and dries into a soft matte. Doesn’t dry out lips and the matte lipstick doesn’t start to ball up like other lipsticks do!
  87. best lipstick


    I have Mehr and Velvet Teddy and whirl! All three colors are a splendid matte shade. Velvet Teddy is a matte that aims a lot more on the beige-brown and gives much more to my type of lips and complexion. Mehr is a beautiful shade of antique rose soiled with some beige. While Whirl is a beautiful shade of brownish nude. Mac lipsticks are the best and amazing range of shades. There's a color for eve...

  88. Amazing colour, little dry


    They constantly improve the colour and the pigment of their Lipsticks but make sure you have a balm handy because they are dry
  89. Amazing lipstick!


    Great colour range and love the matte finish. The lipstick can be a bit drying at times, but it's long-lasting and looks fantastic. I recommend this product.
  90. Best lipsticks I've used!


    I hated wearing lipstick for the majority of my life until I discovered these. I found other lipsticks always just exaggerated my dry skin and would come off after a drink or snack! These lipsticks are the complete opposite - they are pigmented, long-wearing and moisturising at the same time. I'm glad they reduced the prices on these too!
  91. Amazing colours


    Great matte lipstick formula! I have collected quite a few now, mostly nudes and Russian Red. The red is gorgeous and very flattering. They all have great colour payoff though can be a little drying on the lips if worn too many days in a row. Usually I don’t and swap for a satin or a gloss so it’s a non issue for me. LOVE!
  92. Meh


    Once again impulse shopping when comatose with fatigue. Best time to buy guilt-free makeup!
    I was looking for a one swipe, my-lips-but-better, look after my lips kinda job.

  93. best lipsticks ever


    Mac has the best lipsticks and the colour range is out of this word. I love velvet teddy. its the best nude colour and mehr as well. it last a long time as well with lip pencil
  94. You cannot go past Mac!


    The colour is amazing with my light complexion and it is creamy, long lasting and moisturizing!
  95. Can’t beat Mac lipsticks


    I have the velvet teddy Mac lipstick, which I had been using forever and ever until moving to their modesty shade.

    Occasionally do use act natural shade and honey love however these 2 are very matte and not great for dry lips. When wearing these I do apply a lip balm prior to prevent the lipstick from looking too Matte when it goes on. Still good colours to have but velvet teddy and m...

  96. The Perfect Nude


    Lipstick usually looks terrible on me as I have such thin lips but this one is nice and natural and doesn't make me look too dolled up!

    Other matte lipsticks have made my lips look cracked but this one must be made from a different formula as I don't have that issue.
  97. Forever repurchasing


    MAC Velvet teddy is a holy grail for me. I sheer out the formula on my lips for a more nude look or swipe it heavier for a deep nude. The formula is very buildable and I feel like it doesn’t highlight any dry bits. Love it!
  98. Forget I’m wearing it


    I love the satin formula of this lipstick.
    My favourite shade is angel it so hydrating and plumping. They are all very comfortable to wear and fade of nicely and not patchy.
    Work great with the lip primer and lipliner.
    Edge to edge lipliner is perfect for the shade angel
