MAC is one of the top-most luxury makeup brands across the world. Their products are used and loved by a lot of Hollywood celebrities and makeup artists. They have a huge range of lipsticks – that too in every possible shade and finish. Today we are going to talk about their most popular lipsticks of all time. Let’s get started.
I don’t own any of the MAC lipsticks (or products) at the moment, which is kind of ironic since I am writing this compilation post. But I have been following a lot of makeupholics on Instagram/YouTube/Blogs who love MAC so now I have an idea about their popular products / lipsticks.
MAC’s lipsticks come in total 8 finishes –
- Amplified: Creamy, high coverage finish
- Cremesheen: high-shine finish
- Frost: Metallic pearl finish
- Glaze: Glossy veil finish
- Lustre: Semi-gloss finish
- Matte: The original matte finish
- Retro Matte: Mattest matte finish
- Satin: Velvet sheen finish
They currently have around 239 lipstick shades in their (permanent) collection. Here are the most popular ones.
