Matte lips never go out of style and continue to be our go-to addition to perfectly complete any makeup look.

We always find ourselves going back to MAC for the perfect matte lip finish. Following on from the original and iconic MAC Matte Lipstick, they have now developed more matte formulas to help you find your matte style.

Whether you love a soft focus finish, a defined lip or a bold, eye-catching look, MAC have the perfect matte lipstick for you.

Which is the best MAC matte lipstick for me?

To help you create your dream matte lip look, we have selected three of our favourite matte MAC formulas and created three different looks to show you how you can customise your finish.


Soft Matte

A soft focus, matte lip is the perfect starting point if you shy away from bold, striking finishes. Simply tapped into the lips, MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks create an ultra-modern lip look and add just the right amount of colour to your lips without the need for touch ups.

The non-drying, ground-breaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments to deliver the look of a matte lipstick with the lightweight feel of a balm. Expect a zero shine, soft focus look which keeps your lips kissable, soft and plump.

Defined Matte

The iconic MAC Matte Lipstick is still a must-have in any makeup collection. With a stunning matte finish which does not drag on application or dry out the lips, the classic formula is loved by beauty editors and makeup artists around the world.

For a defined, colour-rich finish, simply glide the colour on to your lips straight from the bullet. The timeless look will perfectly complete any makeup look.

Bold Matte

Create a bold, high-impact lip look with MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. One of the latest additions to MAC's lip collection, Retro Matte provides eight hours of perfect wear time and leaves a liquid-suede finish on the lips.

With a doe-foot applicator for ultimate precision, the liquid lipstick creates truly eye-catching results which do not budge, smudge or transfer.
