MAC Best Selling Lipsticks For Summer

Best-selling lipsticks are always a safe bet if you’re unsure which shade to pick. To make it even easier for you, you’ll find MAC’s best-selling lipsticks for summer and everything you need to know about them if you keep on reading. 

As one of the most well-known makeup brands out there I’m sure we all have a MAC lipstick in our collection. Without a doubt, we would recognise that grey bullet anywhere – the same grey bullet that has the power to transform any makeup look (and attitude) with just one sweep across the lips.  

MAC have such a huge range of lipsticks in different formulas that there’s something for every skin type, tone and mood. If you’re more of a lipgloss wearer, there’s an equally huge range of lipglosses too. These are also fab for wearing over lipsticks, adding an extra dimension of colour and shine. 

If you like your lipstick to last all day and have a beautifully strong pigment, a MAC lipstick should be top of your list. The only question is: which shade do you choose? With over 100 different shades of lipstick to choose from it can sometimes leave you feeling like a kid in a candy shop.  

Best-selling lipsticks are always a safe bet if you’re unsure which shade to pick. To make it even easier for you, you’ll find MAC’s best-selling lipsticks for summer and everything you need to know about them if you keep on reading. 

If you’re looking for a fairly subtle warm nude which is ideal for throwing on with any makeup look this summer, Twig is the perfect shade! Suiting all skin tones, this shade adds the perfect amount of colour whether you’re going for a full ‘party-night-out’ glam look or a ‘day-on-the-beach’ no-makeup look.  

Twig is from the Satin Lipstick range, so the formula glides onto lips easily and the creamy texture stays put all day long. It also makes it great for drier lips; you don’t have to worry about reapplying lip balm all day, as this has you covered! 

The one and only Ruby Woo. If you’ve not tried this shade already I’m sure you’ve heard of it – that’s why it’s one of the best-selling lipsticks of summer, winter and all year round! 

From the Classic Retro Matte range, the formula delivers that bright red pigment we all love for the boldest of bold looks. Wearing such a bright red shade can often be risky and come with the worry of bleeding or smudging. But this lipstick doesn’t transfer, so you can drink all the wine you want without losing that gorgeous red lip on the glass! 

Being a matte lipstick, Ruby Woo also pairs well with a MAC lipgloss over the top if you fancy a glossy lip for a change. 

Speaking of bold colours, if you’re the kind of girl who loves bright shades in the summer, you won’t be disappointed with Candy Yum-Yum. It’s the most beautiful neon pink shade which will transform any look.  

Candy Yum-Yum is another shade from MAC’s matte lipstick range, boasting a rich pigment that stays put on the lips without smudging or bleeding. MAC says it’s wearable for up to 10 hours – pretty impressive! Again, you can try a lip gloss over the top for the glossy finish. 

If you prefer a more subtle shade of lipstick in the summer to finish off your ‘no-makeup’ makeup look, Yash is a great choice for you. Another lipstick from the Matte range (you can see how popular these are!), the lasting colour on the lips makes it an easy go-to in the warmer summer months. 

Yash is a classic nude shade with warm undertones to give the lips a natural splash of colour without it looking too obvious. A great lipstick to keep in your bag and pop on your lips to keep them looking and feeling great, wherever you are. You can’t really go wrong with a classic nude shade in summer! 

Another iconic lipstick from MAC is Velvet Teddy. I can’t even count how many times I’ve repurchased this shade! One of MAC’s best-selling neutral shades with an unbelievable pigment, Velvet Teddy is a must-have for your collection.  

Offering an everyday shade which goes with every makeup look, outfit and hair colour, this product is perfect for giving the lips a warm neutral colour without looking too bold. It really is the ultimate summer shade! 

Would this be a best-selling lipstick line-up without a gorgeous summer coral shade? Definitely not! Vegas Volt fills that gap perfectly. It’s not too overpowering and orange, but also isn’t too subtle and nude-like.  

Part of the Amplified Lipstick range, Vegas Volt boasts a creamy formula which keeps the lips feeling soft whilst also holding a rich coral pigment. The shade is the perfect in-between orange and pink kind of coral – the kind of shade you can try if you want to try a bolder colour but you don’t feel brave enough to go full Candy Yum Yum just yet! 

If you’re still not sure which lipstick to get, why not try out MAC’s Virtual Try On Tool. It provides a way to see what each shade looks like on your lips without having to leave your home. And if none of these take your fancy, MAC even has a lipstick shade finder to help you pick your perfect shade and formula ready for summer.
