Hi guys! It’s Friday again, how time flies…before you know it, it’ll be Monday soon, then the cycle goes on. But hey! let’s keep the reviews coming, right? Today is all about you MAC cosmetics addicts! and yes it’s about lipsticks, again?! Yeeeah… But before we continue, please checkout my review on MAC Satin lipsticks HERE.
I adore MAC lipsticks. They’re affordable, the shades are plenty and very wearable, the textures are true to its description, the formulations are great, and they also have great customer service in general. In other words, they’re basically the “no fuss” kind of lipsticks or cosmetics. Though there might be a few miss, but MAC’s popularity is a no brainer at all.
So I did the MAC Satin lipsticks review previously, but now here’s my personal take on MAC Matte lipsticks;
Kinda Sexy – Neutral Pinky Rose. For someone with an NC30-35 skin tone, this shade appears like a nude-coral tone on me, which is what I actually like because it didn’t make me look too washed-out. Just a bit of a coral flush.
Taupe – Muted Reddish–Taupe Brown. One of my most favorite shade in MAC’s Matte lipstick line. It truly matches my skin tone with just enough hint of muted brown and a bit of red. The formula is also quite creamy and it’s a great shade for those who wants/likes a very wearable brown shade of lipstick.
Velvet Teddy – Deep-Tone Beige. Probably my least favorite of all the mattes mentioned here. If you’ve read my previous lipstick reviews, you knew that I’m not really a fan of nude or too nude lipsticks that much, since my skin is quite on the middle or medium tone. Nude lipsticks tend to make me look like a zombie, haha! This particular shade is great for fair-skinned gals, but to me, it just blends on my skin, plush the formula is quite drying.
Mehr – Dirty Blue Pink. Pretty in deep muted pink. Ah, love this shade! I reach out this shade when I want a wearable berry-pink shade that’s not too ostentatious. It’s so pretty in matte texture and would work really well from light to dark skin tones.
Whirl – Dirty Rose. The popular Kylie Jenner lip shade that was once usually sold out together with its Satin sister, Twig. This is indeed a gorgeous rose-brown shade that changes its color intensity depending upon the application. To me, I find it to be the “most brown” of all the MAC matte lipsticks that I have. Sometimes, I find myself applying this lightly on my lips, so as not to look too ghastly.
Persistence – Peachy Cinnamon. A gorgeous coral-brown shade that I tend to substitute for Whirl when I feel like it’s too dark mode for me. It’s a lighter version of Whirl, but darker than Taupe. For someone with naturally tan skin, I simply love this wearable shade.
So Select – Another Dirty Rose. Not really sure about the name of this lipstick, but this is only available to those MAC Select Members. Its description says Dirty Rose, but it’s nothing like Whirl. It’s nothing like the satin Twig either, like some people describe. This shade is probably the most perfect blend of muted rose-mauve-brown I’ve ever seen. Quite similar to Kat Von D Lolita, actually. But to sum it all, this shade is darker than Twig, but lighter and rosier than Whirl, while Persistence is more in the coral range. Now do I love this shade? You kidding me? I’m crazy about it. 🙂
To sum it all, MAC Matte Lipsticks are some of the best matte lipsticks I’ve ever tried. A few may not be wearable in terms of colors, some may be drying, but most are really amazing when it comes to shades, lasting power and are really worth the money.
Enjoy your FriYay! friends!
