Russian Red- an absolute classic!


This is the first MAC lipstick I ever owned, and have repurchased several times over the years. The colour is perfect- a slightly bluish punchy red and a long wearing, dry texture that I really like (I know a lot of people say it's too dry, but honestly it won't stay on unless it's dry!). If you prep your lips first with scrub, balm and primer it will go on perfectly. This lipstick is an absolute staple and you can't go wrong.

Great colours but drying


The colours are stunning but unfortunately the formula of these lipsticks is way too dry for me. I find it uncomfortable to wear and just doesn't feel good on my lips
  1. Love my velvet teddy!


    I have these lipsticks in a few colours, although many I regret purchasing as I hardly wear bold colour lipsticks anymore. I like the colour ranges and you can pick different consistencies. Be aware that matte can be very drying and you need to prep your lips before wearing if you don't want chapped looking lips. I like velvet teddy as it is a nice wash of colour over my lips. I also like that you can collect 6 and bring it back for a free lipstick! :)

  4. Great shades!


    Perfect shades and a perfect matte. Quite hydrating too for a matte lippy. Lasts most of the day but needs a top up after eating/drinking
  5. Stunning colour


    The shade is quite perfect as I have warm skin tone as I love to wear it even without any other make up just this lipstick and that’s very convenient.
  6. Pretty good


    Lasts a long time but if your lips are dry it really doesn't sit well
  7. luscious lips


    I LOVE all Mac Lipsticks!
    the matte finish is great , I find in the winter my lips are dry so i apply a small amount of lip balm before appyling
  8. Fantastic Mac


    This lipstick goes on quite well. It has staying power and I find that it doesn't dry my lips. My favourite shade for the day is Velvet Teddy. I have very pale skin and a fair complexion. It has a lovely creamy formula. Mac are leaders in the lipstick world!
  9. Down to art


    This is a nice lipstick. Wasn’t drying and lasted quite well on my lips. The colour is very pretty and natural
  10. Master


    I love the MAC battons. The pigmentation is good and the fixation is good too. I have a collection.
  11. Get yourself an exfoliator and heavy duty lip salve


    This is a great, classic matte formula. My personal favourite colour is "Kinda Sexy" and I am very fair and have neutral undertones. Its definitely kind of drying on the lips, which is common with matte lipsticks. Take care of your lips by using an exfoliant and then a heavy lip balm the night before and it will be a very comfortable formula to wear!
  12. Staple product


    Mac lipsticks are pretty much essential to any good makeup look. Long lasting and always look amazing!
  13. Velvet teddy love it


    Mac lipsticks will always be my favourite sits on perfect velvet teddy is a beautiful everyday colour
  14. Mac lipsticks are the best!


    I love the matte lipsticks from Mac. You get the matte finish without the dry lips like you do with other matte lipsticks. Mehr is my favourite favourite matte shade. Would definitely recommend!
  15. No brainer


    I love MAC Matte lipsticks - the scent, lightweight packaging, great colour range. They last really well on the lips and I don't find them drying. My favourite colours are Lady Danger - bright orangey red, I wear it in the summer and people always ask what I'm wearing. Doesn't make my less than perfectly white teeth look yellow as a lot of warmer lipsticks can which is awesome.
    Russian Red - deeper red, more a winter colour for me
    Velvet Teddy - definitely not a true nude on me, but a nice neutral shade
    Looking to add Chili next!
  16. Holy grail lipstick


    This is my favourite formula of lipstick that Mac makes. I personally think that it's the most comfortable matte lipstick on the market. The colours are so stunning, pigmented and long wearing. I have this in 5 different shades and would have eventually love to have the entire collection. It's my daily go to and I would highly recommend it to anyone that loves matte lipsticks.
  17. looks great


    love the colour, so easy to apply no need for lip pencil but looks great with it.
  18. Fave


    Mac make my absolute favourite lippies ever. Go on perfectly and last pretty much all day for me
  19. love it


    They are a bit drying but I add the lipgloss on top and it feels great. the colour stains my lips as well and lasts hours
  20. Best lipstick everrr


    Mac lipsticks will always be my fave, Mehr shade is amazing and perfect for day or night wear!
  21. Super creamy for a matte


    The lipsticks are great quality for the price point and are super soft and easy to wear
  22. Velvet Teddy & Chili


    This lipstick in Velvet Teddy is my favorite lipstick ever. I wear it to work most days, and on nights out. It wears nicely and it is the perfect pinky-brown nude.
    I'm re-applying twice for a 10-12 hour work day.
    I also just got Chili, and love that the red brightens up my makeup but is still a kind of muted, not too in your face red. I don't like super glam for work, but this red is just on the acceptable scale for what I prefer for the office if the rest of my makeup is very toned down. I'm very fussy with reds, I can never tell if a red lip compliments me or not, but I liked this red immediately.

  23. My go to nude!


    Teddy Velvet has been my go to nude for years - lasts ages and isn’t drying. Lovely matte finish!
  24. Love it


    I have this in several shades. Easy to apply and love how small it is so fits nicely in my small bags. Even on days when I have dry lips I find this still applies nicely without showing all the cracks
  25. Gorgeous long lasting colour!


    Bought this in colour Mehr, a stunning deep pink/red and suits my medium skin tone. Lipstick is moisturising and long lasting. Matte colour is nice but you can add a clear gloss over the top for a different look.
  26. Velvet Teddy


    You can't beat this colour and I think it is a staple for everyone. My lips have more of a red tone but this colour works well with a lip liner for me. Definitely a nice mlbb colour.
  27. Perfect shade


    I highly recommend this product, it is such an awesome matte formula that lasts all day without getting to dry, velvet teddy is the perfect nude pink shade that goes with every makeup look!
  28. Best lipstick I’ve tried to date.


    I received MAC lipstick as a part of national lipstick day promotions and it is the best lipstick I’ve ever used. The formulas is silky smooth and so pigmented. I’m so happy I got my hands on one of these.
  29. AMAZING!


    Mac love honey is the perfect matte lipstick. It is my go to that I wear with most of my makeup looks!
  30. The best of all the lipsticks.


    I’ve been wearing MAC lipsticks for a long time now and anything else I try doesn’t come close to being as good as these. My fave is ‘kinda sexy’ which is a tad more pink then ‘velvet teddy’
  31. Love


    Beautiful matte colour, very pigmented and complements any skin tone. Long lasting and non-drying on the lips. Will continue to buy again.
  32. Staple


    Mac lipsticks are staples. Definite pro's and con's to the matte formula. Good price, rich colour, long lasting but also drying as most mattes are. Good product if matte is your jam I personally prefer more hydrating formulas.
  33. So comfortable to wear!


    Mac lipsticks will always be my favourite! They are so creamy and comfortable on the lips. They last reasonably well and are super pigmented.
  34. Gorgeous lipsticks


    I love these MAC lipsticks. The pigmentation is great, they last well throughout the day even when eating and drinking and aren’t too drying for the lips. And the colour range is amazing. Highly recommend.
  35. Lady Danger


    Love this colour, but it definitely runs more orange than I expected (despite reading that in many other reviews!). Still, a nice pop of colour if you are looking for something different to your standard red.
  36. The only lipstick that touches my lips


    Super-pigmented, long-lasting and fabulous for ladies who are prone to dry lips. The best lipstick ever.
  37. Velvet Teddy is my holy grail


    I love the velvet teddy mac lipstick. I have dry lips in winter, and this doesn't accentuate the dryness. Instead, it actually smooths down the dry flakes. This is the perfect nude colour for my asian skin tone.
  38. GORGEOUS neutral nude


    Just purchased VELVET TEDDY. OMG I am in love with this colour. ADORE BEAUTY have the fastest delivery and you will not be disappointed
  39. Fav lipstick


    Good for dry lips, because they don't create cracks or flakiness! I love the creamy formula and rich pigmented colours. Perfect for on the go! They last a long time too. Gorgeous shade range
  40. Pretty good


    Mac is cheap but is as good as others. Each girl should own one.
  41. Russian red- amazing colour!


    I love this colour, but it’s too dry and crumbly on my lips. I just mix it with some balm for a nicer finish.
  42. Fabulous


    Love, lipstick is hydrating and colour lasts. Absolutely fabulous
  43. I like this product


    Mac chilli is the best and cheapest lipstick. Buy it!
  44. Nice but can be drying


    This is a beautiful lipstick but would not be good for dry lips. My friend tried mine and it stuck to the drier bits of her lips. Great for a Matte finish to change it up
  45. Love it


    MAC lipstick is always my favorite. I bought a few lipstick from MAC and my favorite is Russian red. Its long lasting without too drying. The color is so nice as well. Definitely recommend.
  46. Love it!


    Recently purchased this in the Chili colour and I love it. My lips do get quite dry but this lipstick does not crack.
  47. Russian Red


    My most favourite shade of red..fresh color n velvety texture on lips..perfect lipstick..couldnt ask for more in this price..
    Velvet teddy is also my go to lipstick.
  48. Love these lipsticks


    I never usually wear lipstick but a friend who is a make up artist recommended I try the MAC range. I bought two lipsticks from this range- lady danger and a nude/pink. Was hoping the lady danger was more of a red undertone but came out more orangey. In saying this though- I still love the colour! Brilliant smooth texture that lasts very well. Will definitely be getting more colours from this range!
  49. Nice but not good for dry lips


    I really like this lipstick but it’s not great for dry lips. I mix it in with lip balm as I love the coral colour range but if I put it on my lips directly it dries them out and goes ‘bitty’
  50. My go to everyday lip


    I love this product! I wear velvet teddy shade religiously. It’s perfect for daytime into night wear. I love how the matte finish goes on as it’s not too drying and applies really smoothly.
  51. So good


    I love this so much!! It’s the perfect colour when you just want a natural makeup look and it goes with everything perfectly! It looks so good when it’s on and last for ages without drying out your lips
  52. Love


    Love the shade range of the lipsticks they have a variety of beautiful nude colours for pale skin like myself. I find the formula nice and creamy and it doesn’t dry out my lips one bit
  53. Velvet teddy - nice nude shade


    Finally decided to try this much loved 'velvet teddy' lipstick. Surprisingly it did not make me look washed out. It is a pretty colour. Only thing is i wished it wasn't as drying on my lips.
  54. lovely


    mac lipsticks have the best formula on the market by far! velvet teddy is my fav, with the perfect nude color thats not too light and not too dark, stays in place and doesnt dry out your lips!
  55. Adore M.A.C Lipsticks!


    I love MAC lipsticks because they have incredible colours, and last for so long. They also are not as drying as other lipsticks (granted I avoid wearing when my lips are chapped)
  56. Mac lipsticks are amazing


    I have so many lipsticks in many shades from MAC. My go to lipstick when going out. I find it gives a great finish that lasts the night, I also love the Colour selection that MAC provides
  57. Colours are great but can be drying!


    I absolutely love the price and colours of these lipsticks but if you have dry lips these don’t go so well and leave your lips needing a lot of hydration!! But with a good gloss these lipsticks are great.
  58. Lovely


    Such a nice lipstick! perfect colour and goes with everything also doesn't dry out at all but isn't sticky
  59. Soar is awesome!


    I have this matte lipstick in Soar, which is a deep mauve colour. Not drying at all, and the color works really well with my brown skin. Didn't expect to like this lipstick this much. The only downside is it disappears quite quickly, but not a big issue for me.
  60. excellent


    this is such a good lipstick and this colour goes with everything doesn't dry out at all
  61. Honey Love


    Love MAC lipsticks! My favourite in the matte range is definitely honey love. Such a nice nude colour. I often add gloss over the top for a more plumping look.
  62. Super comfortable and long lasting!


    I was late to jump on the velvet teddy bandwagon but so glad I did! The formula is so buttery and comfortable on the lips. It lasts such a long time as well. I find just one swipe is enough as it's quite pigmented. I'll definitely be purchasing more shades!
  63. love


    love mac lipsticks! lasts forever, great selection of colours !! love the smell and it fits great in a bag.
  64. Must have


    Mac matters are my all time fav formula. Creamy and rich in colour that lasts for hours!
  65. Longwearing AND comfortable


    I really love this lipstick for times when I need my lipstick to last for a longer time without needing to reapply it. Its ability to be long wearing, pigmented, and comfortable on the lips is what makes me love this. I don’t like to wear it everyday as I like more sheer and hydrating lip products as I like a more natural look and get really dry and cracked lips.
  66. All time favourite lipsticks!


    By far the best lipsticks on the market. They have so many different shades and different formulas. Long lasting and so pigmented
  67. Love this lipstick


    Love this lipstick so much. My favourite colours are ‘Really Me’ and ‘Kinda Sexy’ which suit my medium/fair complexion the most. The packaging is very sleek, super comfortable on the lips and doesn’t feel drying at all. And last FOREVER!
  68. so nice


    Mac lipsticks are my favourite! They are so creamy and feel so nice on the lips. The mattes are surprisingly long lasting for a lipstick! Definitely recommend these lipsticks, I can't get enough!
  69. Velvety goodness!


    I have this lipstick in several shades. I love the Velvet Teddy shade. It's my (along with I'm sure thousands of other gals) go-to choice of colour for any occasion. So versatile! Doesn't dry my lips either.
  70. sooo pretty


    This range of lipsticks is seriously the best - I can't buy enough! They look amazing and are so smooth on!
  71. I want them


    You can't go wrong with the MAC Matte Lipsticks. My collection keeps growing and I cant seem to buy enough. Always glides on smooth and the packaging in small and perfect for a small handbag or pouch. One day I hope to have them all
  72. Velvet Teddy- lovely rich colour


    The mac lipsticks are worth the hype. So far I have velvet teddy, whirl, pink plaid and Yash. They are a gorgeous formula and very opaque. They last really well and don't dry your lips.
    Highly recommend!
  73. Fave lippys


    I love these lipsticks. Such a huge colour range & goes on super well. If you don't like a drying/matte finish you wont love these. Stay on so well and last all night!
  74. Amazing


    M.A.C lipstick is always my favourite. This matte lipstick is one of the best lipstick i have tried. It is long-lasting, very pigmented and i love the shade. Highly highly recommend.
  75. drying


    gorgeous colours and great pigments but I find the formula very drying and not comfortable to wear
  76. Beautiful


    I love velvet teddy beautiful colour, lasts a while and smells great. Love it
  77. amazing formula


    this lipstick is long lasting and non drying. i can wear it all day without worrying about my lips cracking like usual! would definitely recommend
  78. Really really good


    So long lasting. Mac lipsticks are by far the best of the best. Really lovely colour range and smells so yum.
  79. Classic matte lippy and not too drying


    I have this in Russian Red and it is the perfect red in a creamy matte that doesn't make my lips feel dryer. Reapplies and touches up without flaking too considering i have super dry lips.

  80. Creamy lipstick!


    doesn't dry out your lips like other lipsticks! love the creamy feel!
  81. The best


    The best matte lipsticks. Honey love is the best nude shade
  82. easy application


    easy application, nice colour, however dries my lips out
  83. Best lipstick by Mac


    I am in love with Ruby Woo and Velvet Teddy. I find that these don't dry my lips out and have great staying power. Velvet Teddy is my absolute favourite for the day and Ruby Woo is the perfect shade of red for night time. In fact, I don't know any body that has regretted buying the sade, Ruby Woo! It's a shade that seems to compliment all complexions
  84. Long wearing matte lipstick


    I love these lipsticks, especially the shade Ruby Woo. As with most matte formulas these can be a little drying, however the payoff is that they are extremely long wearing. I find that they generally wear pretty evenly too. Packaging is great and they are pretty reasonable for the price point.
  85. Must Have Matte


    Russian Red and Velvet Teddy are both fantastic shades, I find I need to prep my lips with some scrub, primer etc to get this to sit nicely and not dry my lips out, but colour lasts a really long time.
  86. Obsessed!!!


    Love macs matte lipstick, you cant go wrong! I bought this in a few different shades and they all came out extremely similar to how the photos look! I find you need a little gloss over the top when the weather is cooler/drier but other than that it lasts ages and looks great!
  87. Obsessed with this color!


    It goes with everything you'd wear, truly! It is now my go-to, and lives in my handbag. The case is so simple and elegant and durable! I just throw it in and let it be there, I don't really take much care of it and it stays almost the same everytime I use it, doesn't get scratched easily. Sometimes I even apply this one after other lip colors are faded away, it still looks presentable enough.
  88. Mehr❤️❤️❤️❤️


    Non drying Matt finish which I am absolutely enjoying. I think every girl should have mehr in her bag. Love it
  89. Just wonderful


    I love Mac lipsticks. They are well priced and superb quality. I wore 2 Mac lippys on my wedding day and they look amazing in the photos and had great staying power. I am slowly building my collection.
  90. Love this!


    Absolutely love this lipstick! It's a non drying, creamy matte that applies so beautifully. Definitely recommend!
  91. Love


    I love love love the pigment of these! They're a good creamy matte but personally a little drying on my lips but I love the pigments and formula loads and would reccomend because it's still worth it!
  92. Very moisturising


    Doesn’t leave your lips dry like other lipsticks keeps it moisturised and creamy! Love the colours they have!
  93. One of the best!


    Honeylove by MAC is one of my favourite nudes I’ve ever used. I’m light and can go up to a medium when tanned and this colour always looks good. I can darken it with a lip liner or lighten it depending on the look I want. This lipstick is amazing
  94. Matte but creamy


    These feel nice on the lips and have excellent payoff and shade range, I try other lipsticks but come back to these every time
  95. Honeylove - love the nude


    I love this colour! I cover it lightly with a gloss as I don’t like the matte look, however this product isn’t drying on the lips like most matte lipsticks. It doesn’t last for hours so you do need to reapply, but it’s a great product overall.
  96. Pretty


    I have the shade Mehr and is is so pretty and subtle on my fair complexion. My lips do tend to be on the dry side so I do have to exfoliate and moisturise quite well to ensure this lipstick looks good on me. I find I can use this shade without a liner which is also a win for more everyday, easy use.
  97. Great vibrant lipstick


    This lipstick was my absolute go-to in my early makeup days. The colour is vibrant and very pigmented and will last all day. I would constantly get compliments about how rich and bright the red shades are!
