What is the most popular lipstick colour?
There are lots of popular lipstick colours on the market and finding one to suit you comes down to personal preferance a lot of the time. At MAC some of our most popular lipstick colours are Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy, Mehr and Devoted to Chili.
Ruby Woo is a Retro Matte, long-wearing formula that features an intense colour payoff and a completely matte finish. It'll wear for up to eight hours without feathering and is fade-proof. With a matte finish, a perfect partner to ensure all day comfort is our Prep + Prime Lip, a colour-free base to wear under lipstick. It adds light moisture whilst smoothing and refining the lips, as well as improving the appearance of applied lip products. To give your red lip that perfect finish, use Ruby Woo Lip Pencil to shape, line or fill in the lip. It has a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for outlining lips or colouring them in. You can apply a Lip Pencil before lipstick by lining your lips using the pencil tip for a defined lip look with long-lasting colour, or you can try a shade slightly deeper than your lipstick, such as Burgundy Lip Pencil and blend with a 316 Brush for a fuller lip look.
Velvet Teddy and Mehr are both anormal Matte texture so have a creamy rich formula that features a high colour payoff in a no-shine matte finish. Velvet Teddy is a deep-tone beige colour that suits most skin tones and is perfect for everyday wear! Pair with Spice Lip Pencil for the perfect neutral nude lip colour. If you prefer your natural lip colours with a hint of pink, look no further than Mehr Lipstick which is a beautiful dirty blue pink colour, perfect for a natural colour with a slight pop of colour. Team with Soar Lip Pencil to deepen and define!
Another popular lip colour right now is Devoted To Chili which is part of our Powder Kiss range. These are also matte but matte, totally reinvented! Devoted To Chili is a moisture-matte weightless lipsticks that deliver a romantic blur of effortless soft-focus colour. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisturecoated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zeroshine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm. Pair with Auburn Lip Pencil for a stunning burnt orange, red lip look!
PRO TIP: Apply a thin coating of Prep + Prime Lip over the entire lip area and over the lip edges too. Give it 30 seconds to become slightly tacky on the lips and then apply your desired colour. It's like velcro for your lipstick!
