Today’s review is going to be the MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick. You could own all colors of lipstick in the world, but for daily wear you would gravitate more towards neutral shades only. This is the first MAC lipstick I had bought and eventhough I own a load of them, this one has always been my go to lipstick for subtle everyday makeup. So let’s get into the review of MAC Taupe Lipstick!

How Did MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick Work For Me?

There’s not much going on with the packaging for the MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick. Just the standard travel friendly, sleek black packaging that MAC uses for most of its lipstick range. So I’m going to jump directly into the content and how it is on me.

The MAC Lipstick Taupe comes with the trademark subtle vanilla fragrance and when applied, gives a nice terracotta brown color with slight red undertones unlike many other lipstick which gives beigy nude color that tends to wash out most Indian/Olive skin tones. The MAC Taupe shade being a matte stays on longer than any amplified or cremesheen finishes and it stays on for a good 4-5 hours. When it does start to wear off, it doesn’t leave any stains behind which is always a huge plus. Application is easy with the Taupe MAC Lipstick being super pigmented and creamy. Even though it is a matte lipstick, it doesn’t dry out the lips and on its own it can be flat so if you want a little bit of shine, you can lip gloss on top if that’s what you prefer.

The MAC Lipstick Taupe is one those shades that can be worn everyday and will be flattering on fair to medium plus skin tones. On darker skin, it’ll look like MLBB shade but it is better to try it in the store to see if it suits you before buying it. The best dupe for MAC Taupe Lipstick is the Revlon Matte Lipstick in Coco Craving. Overall, I would say that MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick would be worth buying if you love nude lipsticks from MAC.

      This shade looks so pretty on you. It is perfect for spring beacause of its peachy understone. 🙂
