Mac Lipstick Colors and Lipstick Shades
When it comes to lipstick, no other brand can seemingly compare to MAC. The boldness and confidence that a tube of MAC lipstick provides is truly incomparable to any other cosmetic brand. The main reason MAC seems to stay on top of the food chain is because of their wide spectrum of color scheme. Bold reds, nude pinks and even harsh purples… MAC has it all. Lipstick has also been a sparking trend, especially since the start of 2016, and bold lips have been seen on almost every Fall-Winter-Summer 2016 runway show. Lipstick is something that may not be essential for everyone, but MAC has palates that do appeal to everyone. MAC also has a wide range of colors meant for every skin tone and complexion.
It’s hard to find that perfect shade of lipstick, and even harder to match it with your own natural features. Since we all know how hard it can be to narrow down that one color, we’ve compiled this list of the best MAC lipsticks to purchase right now.
11 MAC Red Lipstick: Brooke Candy
This take on the classic red is more than perfect. A classic red can never go wrong, and not only this is one of MAC’s bestsellers, but it is inspired by singer Brooke Candy herself. This lipstick even comes in special packaging! The bold red lip will never go out of style, and add the perfect drama to every outfit.

22 Charlotte Olympia Lipstick
A different take on the classic nude red is the new collaboration that MAC did with infamous shoe designer; Charlotte Olympia. This red is just as eye-catching, however it is also a matte finish. Charlotte Olympia herself is a frequent red lip enthusiast, and this lipstick is the perfect accessory to showcase all things Charlotte Olympia for us shoe lovers. The matte finish also adds a unique sense of femininity, and has us lusting for all we can get our hands on.

33 Zac Posen Lipstick
Another lipstick to invest in this season for all fashion lovers is the collaboration with Zac Posen. Posen is known to create delicacy and elegance within red-carpet gowns, but this shade that he created with MAC has our hearts racing. The blush-pink peach lipstick is so soft and warm, that it has us even more excited for spring. It also comes in the iconic Zac Posen packaging, making the lipstick that much more timeless.

44 MAC Pink Lipstick: The Viva Glam
In 1994 MAC introduced the world to the Viva Glam Lipstick in deep red, but then in 1997 it was recreated into a pink mauve. Later on in 2004, the Viva Glam added a warmer plum finish, giving it the perfect pearly look. The reason that this lipstick is so special is because every cent of the selling price goes towards helping people who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

55 Antique Velvet: Intense Brown
This shade may be the most important of the season. Darker lips are showing up on runway after runway, and we love it. This high-fashion texture is also matte finish, and defines lips perfectly.

66 Crème in Your Coffee
Our next favorite tone of lipstick for spring is the look of a softer- yet still darker- prink/brown. Browns were extremely popular this winter, and are going to last throughout the spring. The reason that this color particularly is so appealing is because it is formulated to shape lips as well as showcase them. This shade is the perfect lip color for spring, and will be worn all throughout next fall.

When it comes to what’s in trend, the deep purple lip is what graced majority of the runways this past season.

This MAC purple lipstick hue is one of our favorites this season, and we will surely be wearing it to all music festivals and BBQ’s coming this spring.
