For ages I was really wanting to get the shade Velvet Teddy but couldn’t justify the price unfortunately. I only had drugstore lipsticks. One day I said to myself just go for it and purchase it so I did and I’m so pleased I did. MAC Velvet Teddy was my first ever high end lipstick. The packaging is stunning and heavy which makes it look high end. The lipstick is more on the expensive side however you can get mini lipsticks now which are a few pounds cheaper which I think is ideal. I don’t know if your like me but I hardly ever use a whole lipstick up so I think it’s great that you can buy mini sized lipsticks. I now own 3 MAC lipsticks, slowly building up my MAC collection. Velvet Teddy is a beautiful deep-tone beige shade, a perfect nude shade which are my go to shades. It is a matte lipstick. When applying it it is very creamy and goes on well. It dries down matte and I don’t find it drying on the lips at all. These lipsticks are what made MAC famous and I can see why, they are beautiful. As it’s a bullet lipstick I do find I need to reapply throughout the day but I really don’t mind that. So glad I purchased this. The next shade I own is Créme In Your Coffee. This is a mid-tone pink brown shade. Again one of my go to shades. This is a cremesheen lipstick. When applying it is very creamy and goes on well. The formula is balmy as well and feels very comfortable on my lips and doesn’t dry them out at all. It does give a semi-glossy finish which I like. I’m always getting dry lips regardless of the time of the year and this lipstick provides my lips with much needed hydration. Last but by no means least is the last shade I own- Ruby Woo. I received this for review of the week, thank you again @GlamGeekClaire This shade is your perfect red shade lipstick. It is a matte lipstick and I didn’t find it drying on my lips. It’s the perfect shade for this festive season and this is the shade I’ll be wearing over Christmas. Love these lipsticks. I recommend them to you.

I am in my mid 30's with sensitive, olive tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is light brown, dry with normal texture.
Until a few months ago I ONLY wore matte liquid lipsticks as I couldn’t find a bullet lipstick that lasted all day and didn’t need reapplying...... that was until I tried Mac matte lipstick 🙌🏼
There is such a great range of colours available so it was really easy for me to find a perfect nude shade! I apply it on my lips, blot with a bit of tissue and apply another layer and I can honestly say it had the same lasting power just as my fave liquid lipstick.
It felt comfortable, not drying at all. Didn’t transfer and even lasted after I had a meal & drinks! Definitely recommend and I will 100% be repurchasing!

I have purchased 10+ Mac lipsticks in various shades and always go back to them. Long lasting, not drying and beautiful shades. If anybody ever asks me about recommendations for lipstick I always say Mac cosmetics.

Mac lipsticks have a great consistency and they come in really good colours with a lasting effect
Sadly the case packaging is not up to the brand name.Too easily broken meaning the lid no longer stays on, drying out the lipstick. This has happened with all Mac lipsticks I have bought

Not my no 1 lipstick but it is in my top 5 not only does it wear beautifully the pigment on these lipsticks are fab. It is a nice creamy application and doesn't stain the lips looks amazing with a nice clear gloss over the top. I have a few in different colours but my purple punches out amazing colour and doesn't dry your lips out.

A lipstick that actually stays put. I’ve got 5 different shades now, and will happily buy more. Not a cheap lipstick, but you hardly seem to use any. Lovely colour options too. Feels lovely and creamy but not sticky.

Mac Angel is my fave go to lipstick since I learned years ago that Kim K was wearing it at the time, as soon as I tried it I was hooked. It’s good coverage with a frosted finish and pink in shade. Definitely a subtle day time shade, not quite bright enough for a night out. I love the smell of it too, it almost smells edible like sugary, but hey don’t go chomping on it though!

It so good literally only need two swipes for bottom and top lip would totally recommend. There was nothing I didn’t like about the product it ticked all my boxes everything I wanted in a lipstick it had. The only thing I disliked was it ran out .
