What are MAC’s top 20 lipstick shades?

MAC’s Top 20 Lipstick Shades


When it comes to lipstick shades, there are always a handful of shades that become instant sensations around the world. I remember when MAC’s Russian Red debuted and every celebrity had to have it. You’d see that shade worn at every nightclub. Madonna used to wear it early in her career.


I thought it would be fun to countdown MAC’s top 20 lipstick shades this week. Can you guess which colour is the most popular? There might be a couple hues that surprise you! I was a little surprised how little pink showed up in this list. Pink is universally the top seller in terms of lip colour. But MAC caters to a slightly edgier customer so some of these nudes make perfect sense.

I also think these lists offer great colour suggestions. If a certain colour is particularly popular, you know that it is going to flatter a great range of skin tones. You might get a few ideas of shades you might want to try. Here’s the list!

    wow what a collection love them it depends on the clothes your going to wear the time of day as to what colours I tend to go the pinky browns more natural colours like with eyes wither the cream/brown or dark blue/greys for smokey eyes always black mascara & eye liner. I think I need to take you make up shopping with me Dave as I now need to replace everything from foundation whicg is light ish think my last was ivory to powders then the eyes lips & face bits then afterwards all the creams I do like Clarins bits on the hydraquench.
    Hope you had a fab Christmas happy holidays.

    Yes. It is interesting that there are so few pinks. It makes the line up very rich coloured.
