Review and Swatch: MAC Matte Lipstick in Chili

MAC Matte Lipstick in Chili.

My first MAC lipstick ever! Is it worth it?




“Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M.A.C famous.”

MAC Matte Lipstick in Chili.



Back 2 MAC.

It came in a black box and when you open the box it says “Back 2 Mac” (which is one of their on-going programs). The lipstick came in a shiny black glitter tube with an engraved M.A.C by the opening above the silver stripe. On the bottom is the sticker of the finish, name, and date.

This matte lipstick is VERY creamy! It was so easy to apply right off the tube but I prefer using a brush when I’m using a red lipstick for a nice clean application. It didn’t dry out my lips at all even when I didn’t use a lip balm beforehand. This is my first MAC lipstick and I’m so impressed with it! I don’t know if I will get another after this one because of their HORRIBLE customer service at the little stalls. This lipstick lasted for 3 hours and then it started to become dull afterwards.

Chili – Warm Brick Red w/ a Soft Matte Finish


On my lips.


Original Retail: $15
How Much I Got It For: FREE (Thanks to my little sister Kimmy!)
Size: 3 g/ 0.1 oz



I really like this shade because it doesn’t have a blue undertone to it and it really fits my warm skin tone! It’s such a perfect red for me and it has the perfect finish. I was really surprised that my lips didn’t get dried out at all. It was very creamy and easy to apply; the only bad thing would have to be how long it lasted on my lips. I’m still on the fence about MAC products though because of their stuck up little workers at the little stalls always thinking that my boyfriend and I are gonna steal from them -__- We couldn’t even get help when I wanted them to find my shade. But whatevers, my money went to somewhere else. I can't stand places without a good customer service.

Anyways, here is me wearing Chili!

Do you own any MAC lipstick(s)? What’s your favorite shade?

As always, thank you so much for reading!

  1. It's nice! I own a few MAC lipsticks. My first one ever was Plum Dandy, or course back then when I purchased it, it was $14 because it was a few years back. I really like Retro, Brick-o-la & Pillow Talk.

  2. I want it!! I have 3 MAC lipsticks - Deliciously Forbidden, Rue d'Bois, and Prince Noir.

    The customer service at MAC really is horrid. The last time I went, the girl there stood there happily chatting away on her phone and ignored me and several other people even though it was obvious we were waiting for her help. I just gave up and left. I hate stores with snotty salespeople. I get ignored way too often at higher end department stores because they think I'm some windowshopping kid that isn't worth their time.

    1. Oooh im gonna check out those shades ;) i know!! I hate mac's people... They're all the same too cause i've been to a couple.. Sigh just wish that it wasnt like that but it's whatever.. Im more of an urban decay kinda girl haha

    2. Deliciously Forbidden is one of my favourites even though it's more pink than shades I usually use! Sadly all 3 were limited edition (I think). I wonder why it's apparently MAC's policy to hire rude employees... Me too lol. The few times I've had to talk to their CS on the phone they were always really polite.

    3. Ohh boo! Haha nvm! You know that they're a bunch of kiss ass lols and thats how they got the job :P forever urban decay <3 they just need to come out with new stuff b/c it's getting repetitive.. =)

    4. Yeah, I'm super sad because I love DF and I should have bought an extra! But how do they not get fired from complaints?! It's so ridiculous. Yeah, it really is. I just heard that apparently there's a bunch of their palettes for cheap at the 2 Nordstrom Racks in town though so I'm going to check them out as soon as my next 3 midterms are over!

  4. Wow I love that colour on you... i'm still a MAC lipstick virgin, as I have heard that the wear time on them is pretty short, but I love their other make-up so part of me just wants to give them a try. No idea what colour I would go for though, there's so many to choose. I know what you mean about rude sales staff but fortunatly the MAC shop near me in the UK is lovely, the girls are really helpful and so polite, which is probably why I've bought so much recently hehe! x
