In it’s permanent line, these include ten selections which ranges from a finish of Retro Matte, Matte,Satin,Amplified,Amplified Crème,Cremesheen, Lustre,Frost and Glaze. MAC lipsticks range from a spectrum of colors, including nudes, corals, pinks, reds and berries. The color selection that they offer is virtually limitless, as each shade has a distinctive undertone (warm, cool or neutral), making MAC lipsticks a favorite amongst makeup artists. What is unique however, is that each lipstick comes in varying formulas which distinguishes the characteristic of the lipstick and influences its finish, texture, application and how well it wears on the lips.
Satin finishes offer a high concentration of colour but with a slightly moisturizing texture. The colour payoff is still opaque with a hint of sheen but no shimmer. The application is therefore easier than the previously mentioned finishes with more comfortable wear.
