10 Essential MAC Lipsticks for Fall in Chicago

MAC is the quintessential lipstick brand. The great range of colours, finishes and undertones (not to mention the great quality!) means everyone can find their perfect shade, but the choice can also daunting. As the leaves start to brown and midterms loom, these 10 MAC masterpieces we've hand-picked will ensure you're always looking fall fabulous!  

Studded Kiss

This warm oxblood red will suit anyone with a yellow undertone. Perfect for date night!


A blue-toned dusty pink, Mehr will not only suit cooler-toned Chicagoans but will also help whiten teeth! This shade is tame enough to be worn to class while still giving a nod to Autumn.

Dare You

A deep ruby red, Dare You also contains ruby shimmer to usher in the holiday season. It's never too early to think of turkey!


One for the punk rockers at UChicago, Instigator is a berry-toned wine shade that leans slightly cool. It's perfect for deeper skin tones too!

Dark Side

Dark Side is a tried-and-tested MAC favourite. It's a wearable dark burgundy red that is vampy without being too high-maintenance. It has solid 6-hour wear to last you through that PhySci lab.

Del Rio

Del Rio is a darkened dusty pink that would suit both warm and cool skin tones, especially olive tones!


Heroine is a MAC, well, heroine. This vibrant purple shade looks astronomical on deep skin tones, and is bright but still fall-appropriate.

Hang Up

Hang Up is a dark berry colour perfect for pale, cool complexions. Plus, its Cremesheen formula won't dry out your lips in Chicago's sub-zero temperatures.


A browned nude, Touch is another super wearable shade perfect for those with medium skin tones who want to try a brown lippie!

Spice It Up!

Spice It Up! is a muted brown-toned red, ideal for medium-dark skin tones. Its Lustre finish means it has sheer coverage that can be built up in the evening for a more glamorous look.

Fall can be a busy time, but don't forget to give your lips some love with some great quality lip balm and one (or ten!) of these captivating shades.
