SOOOOOOO… I’ve currently got four MAC lipsticks and I do think they are worth purchasing but with the current different lipstick ranges I don’t think that they’re the best ones out there. The shades I have are Matte Mehr 70, Matte Velvet Teddy B35, Matte Sin 94 and Matte Kinda Sexy 36 (can you already see the obsession with matte lipsticks?). I also have MAC lip pencil in the shade Boldly Bare.
I much prefer liquid lipsticks since they stay on longer because of the consistency. With these MAC lipsticks, yes, they are “matte” but just a touch of them and they would come right off. I find that they stay better if you put the lip pencil under it and then over that lipstick or setting it with baby powder. You simply apply the baby powder on a brush that u don’t mind getting dirty and put it all over your lips. Also it depends which MAC lipstick you have got but with mine I’ve noticed that only one, the Matte Sin 70 really dries out my lips. I would recommend putting some kind of lip balm over it.
However the nude one, the Matte Velvet Teddy B35, doesn’t really dry out my lips that much. It also has a nice even application compared to the dark one that is much harder to apply, it’s not as smooth. Also the Velvet Teddy goes very nicely with MAC’s Boldly Bare lipliner, the color comes out very beautiful.
If I don’t eat or drink much the lipsticks stay on for a couple of hours, but as soon as I do or I touch my lips with something the color comes right off. I do think that the packaging plays a big part with lipsticks and the MAC packaging is gorgeous, sleek and simple.
Also there are so many mac lipsticks to choose from and the colors are absolutely stunning and very pigmented which is always a plus. So to summ it up, even though the MAC lipsticks are a little more on the expensive side, it is worth the buy (just be sure to have some lip balm at home and you’re good to go).
