MAC is a good place to start when it comes to lipsticks because they have such a great range of shades. They basically have every color you could think of.
If I ever have a specific shade of lipstick in mind, I always go to MAC first.
Anywho, it’s great to build a base of lipsticks from. Here are the five that I think you absolutely need in your life:
Literally the best red. It looks flattering on every skin tone that I have seen.
I pair this with a red lip liner I got from Milani.
Persuasion / Taupe
The perfect nude color. It’s a warm toned nude and I’m sure it’ll look nice on every skin color. Persuasion is a tad bit darker than taupe.
I really love to wear this on days where I don’t feel like dressing up my face and just want something plain for everyday. It’s perfect!! If you are my skin color, go check it out … NOW!
I like to pair this lippie with “Spice” lip pencil (from MAC).
The perfect every day color. Kind of like a toned down berry. It’s waaaayyy more pink with just a hint of berry. It looks good with so many makeup looks! Definitely a must have – hands down!
Can be paired with any pink-ish lip liner.
This one’s a classic – everyone’s heard about this shade I’m sure! I love it because it is a really good pink nude, BUT I recommend trying it in store just to make sure it looks good on your skin tone.
I like to pair this with MAC Dervish lip liner.
This a really pretty rose pink shade. It brightens up my face and looks really nice on my skin tone. It’s like a subtle pop of color. Very cute for when you want a subtle pop of color.
I pair this with NYX Bedrose lip liner.

In the pictures, Mehr and Twig look really similar but they aren’t. You have to try them for yourself if you haven’t already.
What are your favorite MAC lippies?
