M·A·C Cosmetics Matte Lipstick

This is the iconic M·A·C Cosmetics lipstick that started it all, and with its true matte texture and highly pigmented color, we can see why it's achieved cult status. For the occasions when you want a vibrant lip that's timeless and classy rather than flashy and in your face, it perfectly shades and defines your pout for hours, which means minimal touch-ups. Whether you decide to go bold or a just add a pop of color, you'll soon become addicted to the suede-like finish and extra-glam look.

Nearly all matte lipsticks I’ve tried make my lips feel dry and old because they lack moisture and settle in the creases - but this MAC classic is the exception!

I received Velvet Teddy in BB’s ‘Lips on Lock Discovery Kit’ (highly recommend!) and it’s a lovely red/orange color - perfect for the fall. I typically add MAC lip glass to up the moisture and shine - and create a smooth appearance.

4/5 stars because I need a lip gloss to achieve the look and feel I prefer.

Holy wow red!!!

I bought this lipstick in the travel size just to try it out. I picked Russian Red and it is a beautiful shade! The lipstick glides on smoothly, and I will definitely purchase the full size.

Mehrvelous!

Great color for every day that doesn’t make me look washed out- hard to find for light skin girls!

Loads of complements!

Yes, it takes some getting used to...but it is well worth having a signature style. Recommend lip liner for the over-40 set and watch video tutorials about how to keep this color going all day. You will not regret it. Tracee Ellis Ross has such an iconic style and Mac is apparently her go-to lipstick. She uses Ruby Woo but I went for Russian Red for my coloring. Try it! You will LIKE it! :-)

Sweet and Kissible

I absolutely loved this free sample I received. I love the way this smells and how it applies. Would definitely try some other colors in the future.

Loved it.

I am not typically a lipstick wearer, but I found myself wanting tho wear this (in Velvet Teddy) every day. Smooth, lasting application.

Love velvet teddy

The velvet teddy matte lipstick is the perfect color. It is very rich and stayed on all day. It did get a little dry and crack towards the middle of the day. I apply a lip balm as a base and it helps with the dryness. Did I mention how fantastic the color is!

Wonderful shade

I got this in Velvet Teddy and it is beautiful with my fair skin. It looks like a perfect nude but with a tiny bit of a darker/orangey hue so that my natural look is enhanced without looking too 'made up." Will definitely be using this often for my everyday look.
