MAC The Matte Lip (Partial) Collection Photos, Swatches and Review


I love a good matte lip, and when MAC announced this collection, I literally was on pins and needles. I even skipped a LOT from collections prior to this release only because I *THOUGHT* I’d want them all. Thank goodness, only 3 (for now). These are gorgeous and (kind of) unique (well… maybe to my collection, anyway)!



I chose Pander Me (a soft peachy mocha), Fashion Revival (deep raspberry) and Styled in Sepia (cement beige) and I love them all!

Starting off with Pander Me, a nice soft peach mocha shade that will look fabulous on skintones of all types! The texture was soft and creamy and I loved the finish.






Styled in Sepia is an unusual beauty. I grabbed it because I love browns and beiges lately! I loved the texture of this, as well!






And, last but not least (definitely not) is the showstopper Fashion Revival. Phew, this is a sight for sore eyes. It’s such a perfect berry shade and it goes on so richly, which I adore.







Now, for the comparisons. I don’t have the “dupes” of Pander Me and Styled in Sepia. They are rumored to be Kinda Sexy (from the permanent line) and Riri Nude/Exclusive Event (both limited editions). For Fashion Revival, I have MAC Rebel AND Too Faced Berry.

Purchased by me. All opinions are honest and my own.


  1. I need to run over to MAC asap, I have been looking for matte lipsticks, they used to make them all the time, now they are hard to find! That sepia looks perfect for me!

  2. Those are great colors! Looks like there is a lot of choice!

  3. I love all those colors! I will really shock the world now and admit I don’t own any MAC cosmetics. I should probably remedy that soon!

  4. I like the Mac Rebel color. I am heading to the mall today to get more moisturizer, now I gotta stop by MAC counter as well.

  5. These all look gorgeous! And my lips never look like this when I put on lipstick. I should take better care of them.

  6. Love these colors! Unfortunately lipstick doesn’t look as good on me as it does on you.

  7. I am loving the matte lip trend. I used to be so anti-lipstick but now I love it!

  8. Those colors are all so gorgeous! I want to try them all! Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Wow! Fashion revival is such a gorgeous shade on you! My favorite of the swatches.

  10. Pretty!! I gotta start waering lip stick!

  11. These are great colors on you! They don’t look as matte as I had expected though. I have a couple of the retro matte colors and they are MATTE.

  12. Oooh, nice! love the creamy matte look, and Fashion Revival is easily my favorite. Berry is such a lovely fall shade. <3
