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!
20 Matte Lipstick D for Danger (brick red in matte texture)
19 Cremesheen Lipstick in Crème Cup (light blue-pink in cremesheen texture)
18 MAC Lipstick in Captive (pinkish plum in satin texture)
17 MAC Lipstick in Kinda Sexy (neutral pinky-rose in matte texture)
16 MAC Lipstick in Honeylove (light beige tone with rose in matte texture)
15 MAC Lipstick in All Fired Up (bright fuchsia in matte texture)
14 MAC Lipstick in Rebel (mid-tone cream plum in satin texture)
13 MAC Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous (bright plum in Retro Matte texture)
12 Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer (grapefruit pink in luster texture)
11 MAC Lipstick in Taupe (muted reddish-taupe brown in matte texture)
10 MAC Lipstick in Russian Red (intense bluish-red in matte texture)
9 MAC Lipstick in Faux (muted mauve-pink in satin texture)
8 MAC Lipstick in Brave (pink-beige with white pearl in satin texture)
7 MAC Lipstick in Diva (intense reddish-burgundy in matte texture)
6 Matte Lipstick in Mehr (dirty blue-pink in matte texture)
5 MAC Lipstick in Chili (brownish orange-red in matte texture)

I think there are less pink shades due to the population aging and pink doesn’t always suit older skin tones. @Gaglin

My favourite MAC lipstick shade is Del Rio. It’s an awesome plum colour and I love it! MAC also used to carry a brownish/red colour named “Sepia” that I loved but they discontinued it a long time ago.

I love MAC lipsticks, and my favorite here is MAC Lipstick in Honeylove (light beige tone with rose in matte texture). This is my go-to shade for everyday.
