MAC Lipstick Recap

For easy future reference, here is a roundup of all the MAC lipstick swatches together. This post will be joining the other links in the “Hot Topics” section, so you can pull them up in one click.

MAC lipsticks are $14.50 each, and vanilla scented. MAC also recycles all of its plastic and glass product packaging (the program is called Back to MAC), and you can exchange any 6 items for a brand new lipstick (or lipgloss, or eyeshadow, if you take them to a free-standing store in the U.S.). You can’t Back-to-MAC for a Viva Glam lipstick, because 100% of their purchase price is donated to charity.

Of the lipsticks below, Red Pepper, Charred Red, Fusion Pink, Sin, Full Fuchsia, Show Orchid, Smoked Purple, Violetta, Fleshpot, Peachstock, Neon Orange, and Full Chocolate are pro shades — but anyone can buy them by visiting a MAC Pro store, or by calling 1-800-387-6707 to order.

Amplified Creme (cream-finish, medium-to-full pigment)

    Kisses from Germany <3

  • KarlaSugar says:

    >Hi, JustMe, and welcome! From Germany? Cooool!

    Unfortunately it's not possible for me to swatch the NYX Round lipsticks at this time. I make all my swatches using store testers, and there are no store testers for drugstore makeup.

    I'm so sorry to disappoint you; I hope it becomes possible at some point in the future.
