Must-Have Mac Lipsticks! From Nudes to the Darkest Shades Available
There are many factors I consider when looking for the perfect lipstick. First, the longevity of the lipsticks. Of course, you don’t want to re-apply it every now and then. Also, I look at the shades that will complement my skin tone. Well, like most of you ladies, I believe, lipstick completes the overall makeup look. So, to help you choose which of these many Mac lipsticks you should have, I listed their best-selling ones.
1. Mac Ruby Woo – $16
This is actually the bestselling lipstick shade from Mac. This red velvety shade is a must-have for every girl whether she’s out for a date or a company meeting. Did you know that Rita Ora is in love with this shade?! This is a blue-based red lipstick perfect for making your teeth appear whiter. However, this is a part of the retro matte line, it’s notorious for its super drying properties.
2. Mac Lipstick – Velvet Teddy – $17
If Ruby Woo is Mac’s best-selling red shade, Velvet Teddy is their best-selling nude shade. Well, this is also my favorite! So if you’re obsessed with Kylie Jenner’s nude lips then this one is perfect for you.
Since Velvet Teddy is such a best-selling product it’s almost often OOS in Mac stores! You can get you’re very own Mac Velvet Teddy lipstick here at Amazon.
3. Mac Heroine Lipstick – Matte – $15
This once limited edition purple lippie became a permanent shade in 2014. This is also the go-to shade of Grammy award winner, Lorde. Wearing this purple hue will surely make heads turn.
4. Mac Viva Glam Lipstick – IV – $17
Well, aside from the fact that this lipstick is a must-have for its rich frost finish, it’s also being sold for charity. Every buck sold from this lipstick line goes to men and women living with HIV and AIDS.
5. Mac Diva – $16
This is the darker version of the Ruby Woo and surely it instantly became popular for many makeup enthusiasts. This is super pigmented and long lasting. I love how it empowers its wearer.
6. Mac Guo Pei Lipstick – Brave Red – $30
If you’re looking for a natural warm red hue that is long-lasting and creamy at the same time, this lipstick is perfect for you. I love its creamy texture that makes it easy for application.

Many makeup enthusiasts went crazy when Mac decided to make a collaboration with Ariana Grande. This dark plum shade is to die for! Truly, the perfect party shade.
This lipstick is so opaque! I just can’t, arrgghh!

Mac Whirl is part of the newer shades but it has already gained popularity. Remember when Kylie Jenner made a buzz for her brown lipstick shade? Apparently, way before she launched her own lipstick line, she loves using Mac’s Whirl lipliner for her famous lips. Thus, Mac has decided to make a lipstick version of that lipliner and the Mac Whirl lipstick was born! It’s medium brown mauvey tone is perfect for all skin tones.
