15 MAC Lipsticks You Have to Try Before You Die

There's something so great about MAC lipsticks. For starters, there are so many shades to choose from that you're guaranteed to find at least one that you're head over heels for. My personal MAC loves include Lady Danger (a vivid orange-red that makes me look tanned) and Whirl (a dirty rose). The textures are comfortable and long-lasting, and the matte textures have staying power. The pigments are also a thing of wonder—rich and opulent yet still flattering. Simply put, MAC lipsticks are brilliant.

But with so many great brands launching and drugstore formulations getting better and better, I tend to stray away from my favourite go-to lip colors. But I've realised that while most lipsticks come and go, my MAC staples are always there for me—and I'm truly thankful for that. If you haven't tried a MAC lipstick before, I've put together an edit of some of the cult shades that make for a good starting point.
