    Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

    I have been struggling for years to find the perfect nude that doesn't look orange or wash out my fair freckled skin with my blonde hair. Finally I found a nude that I can dress up or down and is just enough to make me feel beautiful even on lazy days

      Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

      Although it was described as a dusty rose, it's a little browner than I thought, but still good for daytime. I've had two other colors from Mac matte. They are not drying. Just wish the store near me carried full selection.

        Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

        i bought this because i heard mac was coming to ulta and was finally excited to try their lipsticks! and they are fantastic! they are incredibly long lasting and comfortable.

        psa: try persistence or taupe if you are darker than nc42! i bought velvet teddy and it was way too light for me, but taupe gave me the same kind of vibe. :)

                      We're glad to help, Cori! MAC Lip Pencil in Burgundy is a perfect match for MAC Lipstick Matte in Sin. If you prefer a deeper liner, MAC Lip Pencil in Vino will also pair really well.

                      A:

                      Great question, Joelle! MAC Whirl Lipstick Matte is a dirty rose and looks more neutral/rosy on those with fair, light, medium or tan skintones and more nude on those that are medium-dark, dark or deep-toned.

                      We hope that helps!

                      Great question, Page!

                      Both our Matte and Satin formulas wear quite well. To further improve the overall look and performance of any lipcolour, start with MAC Prep + Prime Lip Primer. Apply it on lips, and over the top of your natural lip lines. This product will smooth the texture, moisturize and create the perfect base!
