MAC Matte Lipstick in Taupe ($18.50) MAC Cosmetics describes Taupe as an muted reddish-taupe brown. It's a very orangey, red-toned brown on your lips. The lipstick is a matte, but is still pretty shiny for a real matte lipstick. The pigmentation is very nice. Taupe is a gorgeous MLBB shade for medium to dusky skin tones. So in this post, I am going to give you guys affordable dupes of popular MAC lipstick shades. MAC lipstick shades in red, pink, fuschia and nudes are so damn beautiful. Here is a list of the best selling MAC lipsticks dupes that are pocket-friendly plus easily available in India and worldwide.

Hey everyone!

Last year too, I flagged off the new year with a MAC product review on the Blog, and this new year too, I will continue with this ‘tradition’! Lol, just lends more weightage to the review! 😉

So I’m reviewing the MAC matte lipstick Taupe today! Read on to know why I love it so much!

About MAC Matte lipstick- Taupe: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Price: Rs. 990 for 3g

Packaging: The lipstick comes in the standard MAC packaging- black case with matte-silver details.

Ingredients: Mentioned in the picture below 🙂

My take on MAC Matte lipstick- Taupe: I had been on the lookout for my HG n*de lipstick for a long time, and I finally found it in Taupe. MAC describes it as a muted reddish-taupe brown lipstick, and it is just that. A little brownish in shade, this one goes on as the perfect n*de on my NC-42 skintone and pigmented lips. It has medium pigmentation, covers my lip pigmentation completely, and has a matte finish. You need well prepped lips before applying this one, because matte+ n*de can be a bad combo for chapped, dry lips. Otherwise my favorite shade to wear with heavy smokey eyes. Stays on for a good 3-4 hours, after which a bit of touch-up with lip-balm+ lipstick can make the combo stay for a couple of more hours. It has the signature MAC vanilla fragrance, which I kinda like. Overall, a great n*de shade for a lot of us with yellow skin-tones 🙂 Do try it 🙂

Pros of MAC Matte lipstick- Taupe:

  • Smooth texture
  • Matte finish (my favorite)
  • Stays on for a good 3-4 hours
  • MLBB shade for those with yellow skin undertones

Cons of MAC Matte lipstick- Taupe: None, except you need nicely scuffed/ prepped lips before application, else the dryness may make the lipcolor patchy.

Verdict: If you, like me, have been on the lookout for an MLBB (my lips but better) shade, do give this one a shot. Try it at the store before buying, though. I personally have found my HG n*de shade, and I’m totally in love! <3

MAC lipsticks were at their height in popularity almost a decade ago (remember those ‘My Mac Lipstick Collection’ videos on YouTube?) and although they’re not as popular as they used to be, they’ve still maintained a cult following.

Mac Satin Taupe Dupe

I personally think that MAC lipstick are so popular because they offer so many shades! And not only that, the makeup artists who work at MAC make it extra easy for you to find the perfect shade to suit your complexion.

With that being said, $20 is still quite a lot to spend on a lipstick, especially if you can get the same performance and color from a drugstore alternative.

So, I hope that you found the perfect MAC lipstick dupe for your skintone from this list, no matter if it was a MAC Ruby Woo dupe, a MAC Velvet Teddy dupe, a MAC Mehr dupe or something else!

Let me know in the comments which of these was your favorite shade.
