Mac the Matte Lip | Swatches

Mac released their "Mac the Matte Lip Collection" with 22 beautiful shades; 7 Retro Matte and 15 Matte. I’ve listed the names of each shade along with their description (according to Mac). Those that have a star next to their name also have accompanying lip pencils (sold separately of course). So here we go!

Studded Kiss - Dark oxblood red

Antique Velvet - Intense brown

Instigator- Deep Blackened plum

Matte Royal- Deep Blue 

I decided to pick up two from the collection to decide how I feel about them first before buying all the ones I liked. We all know nothing is worse than going out and buying a full collection and not liking the formula! I picked up the two that seemed to have caught my eye out of the bunch: Stone and Whirl, which both retails for $16.00. I actually really liked these! Most matte lipsticks make my lips feel fairly dry, but these didn’t. They lasted my full workday which is 8 hours including lunch, (I love to eat and I eat plenty messy foods, so any lipstick that holds up through lunch is a win in my book ). Out of the two I grabbed, Stone was my absolute favorite (maybe I just own so many nudes so whirl was kinda ehh for me) but this greyish, taupeish beauty is purely gorgeous and looks pretty good on all skin tones.
