A Guide to MAC Lipstick Finishes
This is such a wonderful topic to talk about right? I always wondered what the different finishes are for MAC lipsticks. I know some lipsticks have matte or shimmer finishes, but are they really called “shimmer finish?” I will answer this question for you in the article. Just like eyeshadows, the lipsticks have a finish too. MAC Lipsticks have 9 different finishes. In the list below, I am going to tell you the difference of all MAC Lipstick finishes.

This means a matte lipstick with a tiny bit of sheen, perfect for those with dry lips who still want a good color pay-off lipstick and moisturized lips.
A lipstick with good color pay-off and frosted shimmers is called a lipstick with a frosh finish, but mostly, the lipsticks with shimmer are quite sheer.

The name says it, a creamy lipstick with a soft shine and full coverage. This lipstick is good for those who like to apply a lip gloss over their lipstick because these lipsticks already have a glossy shine.

This lipstick is very glittery, perfect for the ones that like obvious lips. Once its worn off, you will see micro-glitter particles left on your lips.
Glaze lipsticks are very sheer and have a glossy finish. They tend to last a short time, but perfect for those you want a touch (or tint) of color on their lips.

Unfortunately, I don’t own a MAC Lipstick. It’s quite expensive for me, but I know for sure that in the future, I will be buying at least one of their lipsticks, probably satin lipstick and cremesheen lipstick, but luckily, Rati has a whole bunch of MAC Lipsticks and has wonderful swatches on this website. Without her, I wouldn’t know what to do!!
I hope this helped out all of you and it surely helped me prepare myself in buying MAC Lipsticks.
Take care everyone,
