MAC “O” Lipstick was one of my very first MAC lipsticks and it is still one of my favorite go to lipsticks for Fall. Don’t get it twisted though as it works all year round (especially in the Summer with bronzed, glowing cheeks.)
Described as a purplish-red with golden pearl frost, the description hits the nail on the head but MAC O looks different on everyone. On some people the plum is more apparent and on others the bronze is, for me it is the latter. It looks like a bronze with plum undertones. Definitely gives a duochromatic effect.
My theory about MAC O after seeing it on others is that on lighter complexions it leans more plummy red with bronze undertones, and on darker complexions it leans more bronze with plum undertones.
When wiped off on a napkin it looks like a plum lippie with golden shimmer. I find that MAC frost formula lippies can be very drying and that is definitely the case with “O” so I always apply a lip balm as a base first.
In the tube MAC O looks like your typical bronze lipstick but boy did it have me fooled. I actually passed on this one numerous times before I purchased it and I am so glad that I gave it a try. O is the only MAC lipstick that I’ve ran out of and bought over and over again. In fact I just cracked open a new tube today. Love it.
No I dont own O but I need to!!! Very pretty!
Thank you …and yes you do need it! lol *enabling*
Looks GOOD on you!
i don’t own it but quite like how it looks!
It would look really good on you Vonnie!
“O” My! Love that it doesn’t have that ashy look (the “hungry” look as you so appropriately call it LOL)that those shimmer lipticks tend to give on darker skin
lol When it comes to frost lipsticks you can usually never go wrong with a nice bronze for darker skin tones.
Looks gorg on u. Its my favourite go to lippie these days. It def looks different on everybody. Here’s how it looks on me.
Ooh it looks gorgeous on you! Thanks for posting the picture for reference.It looks very similar on me with the flash 🙂
I don’t own an “O” lipstick, but I must say, that shade looks fabulous on you. Love the shimmer, looks great on you!

Wow! This is surely a pretty color. Mac permanent lipsticks are always overshadowed by their LE. Well, to me at least.
You are right. Everyone gets so caught up in the LE’s that they forget about the permanent lippies.
