MAC Media lipstick. The deep wine hue is just one iconic lipstick that put MAC on the map. Another: Ruby Woo. Think about it: Do you know of any beauty brands that have more cult favorite lipstick shades than MAC? Seriously, so many MAC lipsticks have earned cult status (MAC Sin, MAC Brave, MAC Red...) and for good reason — their shade selection is both vast and unique.
Some of their shades, like MAC Taupe lipstick, are popular for their day-to-day wearability, while others are known and loved for the major pigment punch they pack. Still others have that implacable matte finish, while others have a glossier, more natural look. That said, any way you cut it, they have a lot of really cool tried and tested lip colors that you should probably check out. So, without further ado, here's a list of 19 of their top picks — from frosty pale pink MAC Angel lipstick, all the way to dark vampy Sin.
In addition to being one of the most famous MAC lipsticks ever, Ruby Woo also happens to be one of the most famous lipsticks period. It's pretty much the perfect red -- it's bright and matte, and it somehow looks amazing on everyone. And hey, if it's good enough for known red lipstick aficionados Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, and Rita Ora, you know this MAC red lipstick is worth checking out.
MAC Lipstick in Sin has been a major player since the vamp trend took off in the '90s -- and it's still going strong. Famously favored by Rihanna, it's one of the best dark lipsticks around. It's a deep blackened burgundy, with just the right amount of purple and rich brown thrown in, and the trendy matte texture takes things to the next level.
As much as MAC has been defined by their out-there shades, their Brave lipstick has a quiet intensity all of its own. It's an absolutely gorgeous nude pink with a cream finish, and it's pure sweetness with an edge. Think of it this way: If you don't have a Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit, it's your ticket to that flawless Kylie Jenner pout.
The name pretty much says it all with this one. MAC Lipstick in Diva is about as divalicious as they come, with a deep plum pop to rival the best in the game. Oh, and bonus: It's been rocked by everyone from Beyonce to Emma Stone.
