MAC Whirl Lip Liner became extremely popular in 2016 after Kylie Jenner said it was what she used to make her lips look larger, and it was practically sold out for an entire year.
To complement the MAC Whirl Lip Liner, there’s the MAC Whirl Matte Lipstick which is available both in a full size, but also in a mini size as part of the Mini MAC Collection.
In all honesty, the MAC Whirl Matte Lipstick wasn’t a shade which was on my radar, but it was available as part of the Latest in Beauty boxes, and I decided to give it a try to see what the fuss was all about.
“A mini Lipstick in our bestselling shades. Nine hues, two textures. The iconic product that made M·A·C famous. All Mini M∙A∙C products are totally tote-able in convenient mini sizes.”
A full sized MAC lipstick contains 3g and is £17.50 / $19, so it’s not the best value purchasing the lipsticks in the mini sizes, but it’s still a great way to try a formula or particular shade, especially if you never finish a full size lipstick.
MAC describes the MAC Whirl Matte Lipstick as being a dirty rose, but I don’t detect any rose when wearing Whirl. On me, it very much looks like a reddy toned brown, and in all honesty, I don’t think it suits me.
I prefer pink or nude toned lipsticks, as I find them to be more flattering, but I do really like the MAC matte formula. If you’d like to check out the full range of Mini MAC Lipsticks, you can find them right here.
