Mac Lipstick Collection: Mac Cyber Lipstick (Satin)

One Little Vice Beauty Blog: Mac Cyber Lipstick Review

During April I'm going to be sharing my Mac Lipstick Collection on my blog. Today, I'm kicking things off by talking about Mac's Cyber Lipstick - a deep purple with a satin formula. I recieved Cyber as a Christmas present and it was a shade that I'd wanted to try for a long time. Although it's by no means a colour I'd reach for everyday, I find dramatic lipstick shades incredibly glamorous when they're worn with the right makeup and outfit, and Cyber is certainly dramatic! Below, you can take a look at what Mac's Cyber looks like on my lips.

Because Mac's Lipstick in Cyber is such a dark shade, it's incredibly difficult to apply neatly. To get a true reptesentation of the colour, in my photos I'm not wearing a lipliner. However, wearing a lip liner would make the lipstick look neater, more intense and it would help a lot with longevity. Although Cyber has a Satin finish, it doesn't actually look very matte on your lips. It feels very creamy when you apply it from the bullet and feels incredibly comfortable to wear. Although this is a good thing, it does have some negative implications. As Cyber has such a creamy formula it does "move" quite easily. What I mean by this is that the lipstick can "slip" - ending up on teeth, outside your lip-line and transferring onto glasses when you drink. It isn't an impossible shade to wear but it does require quite a lot of maintenance, and this often puts me off reaching for it.

I love the colour and I appreciate how comfortable the formula is, but I think that if you're after a dramatic lipstick then you might generally prefer something with a more matte and less transferable finish. 

What do you think about Cyber - would you ever wear a lipstick this colour? What Mac Lipsticks are on your wishlist?



  1. This is an amazing bold colour - I love the Satin finish but definitely more for nude shades as I agree there can be too much transfer on such a dark shade! xx

  2. This is such a beautiful shade and definitely one I want in my collection!

  3. This shade is so unique and edgy, still chic. Love how it looks on you even without liner but do agree that it would look neater with :) x

  4. Most of MAC's Satin finishes tend to slip all over the place. Nonetheless, Cyber is still on my wishlist. I'm also planning to purchase either Myth or Creme de Nude, still undecided!
