Favorite Permanent MAC Lipsticks

There is a reason why MAC lipsticks are so popular: it’s because they are great! They are pigmented (depending on the finish), they are good quality and they’re not too expensive. Plus, they have a variety of shades so you’re bound to find something you like!

MAC does have some great limited lipsticks, but they’re just so hard to get ahold of, which makes it extremely frustrating. Luckily, they have a lot of shades in their permanent range that are also amazing. So, today I wanted to share with you all my favorite permanent MAC lipsticks, which means you can purchase these at your leisure.

YashThis is a deep nude shade that looks gorgeous on so many skin tones. If you have a darker complexion and don’t want a nude like Myth that will wash you out, this is a great alternative. It is a matte formula, but it isn’t very drying on the lips so it doesn’t feel uncomfortable, but still lasts a long time.

Velvet TeddyYou’ve probably heard a lot about this shade recently and there’s a reason for it. This is a deep toned nude with a slight pink undertone. So if you want a nudey brown pink shade this will be great. Again, this has a matte finish, but it’s not dry on the lips and it glides on easily. It is quite creamy.

HoneyloveThis shade is another nude shade (sensing a theme here?), but it’s a bit lighter. Again, it has a matte finish, but it isn’t drying on the lips. If you want something a little less brown toned, but still nude, this is a great option.

Kinda SexyLast nude-toned shade, I promise! MAC just makes really great nude shades that fit all skin tones. You’re bound to find one that fits your complexion. Anyway, this is a nude shade, but it has a more pinky peach tone to it so it’s not like a dark brown nude. I love this shade if you want to add a little bit of color to your lips, but still want something nude. It’s perfect and subtle for the spring and summer months. Again, I love matte shades so this has a matte finish, but it’s not drying on the lips, glides on nicely, and is pigmented just like all the shades mentioned above.

Ruby WooNow, this is a blue-toned red that is extremely vibrant and intense. It is probably one of MAC’s most known and loved shades. If you are deciding between this shade and Russian Red, I’ve got you covered. Now this has a retro matte finish and that means it is extremely matte, which really means it is very drying on the lips, but hey, it’ll last a long time. At least it’ll make your teeth look white since it is blue toned!

RebelFinally, a non-matte lip shade, right? Rebel has a satin finish and that means it is pigmented, creamy, and has a slight sheen to it. This is more of a berry plum tone and it is a very popular shade from MAC. Mostly everyone knows about this shade, and it is a gorgeous fall and winter shade. If you want to purchase this I would purchase it during the spring and summer because once the colder months arrive they usually sell out of this shade.

SinAnother cult favorite that is constantly sold out during the fall and winter months is Sin. Since it is a deep dark blue toned burgundy red it is very flattering and looks gorgeous on literally every skin tone. It also lasts a long time on the lips since it has a matte formula. This has been my go to lip shade when I want a dark vampy red lip color. I literally can’t put it down!
