When you’re the first Filipina to have your own custom lip shades with a global brand like Mac AND be sold out in a minute, that’s the real flex.
It’s about time we recognize actress and beauty icon Maine Mendoza as a living moodboard for the next lipstick shades you’ll want to try. After all, she’s the first Filipina, and the only one in Asia, that was chosen by MAC Cosmetics to be on their MAC Maker roster. Ironically, Maine is never afraid to go makeup-free most of the time, which gives us and her fans more reasons to stan her harder. But when she puts on the beat, it’s always an iconic beauty look. In case you’ve been wanting to put on lipstick to brighten your mood, especially in ECQ, here are five shades that Maine Mendoza is making us want to try.

1. PINK PLUMP
It’s hard to believe that Maine normally “doesn’t post glam” photos, especially since she’s been a constant source of beauty inspo. But yes, this pink lip shade passed the vibe check, Maine couldn’t resist posting it!
2. RED VELVET
This sultry shade of red is friendly for all skin tones, whether you’re fair-skinned or a morena. We absolutely love how Maine sealed this look with a kiss and matched it with faux freckles and sunburnt cheeks.
3. IN THE NUDE
Nude shades work wonders, especially for those who are blessed with bee-stung lips like Maine Mendoza. Whether you have plumpy pouts or not, you can achieve this look by getting a lip pencil one shade darker then overline before filling it in with your desired nude hue.
4. DARK MOCHA
An oldie but goodie. For her first ever runway walk at Bench Fashion Week, Maine Mendoza sashayed like a pinup girl with classic old Hollywood glam and a swipe of dark mocha on her lips.
5. CRIMSON RED
Of course, we can’t leave Maine’s signature crimson red lip behind. This shade will forever be associated with her not only because of her role as Yaya Dub, but this also marked her second time as a #MACMaker. Her very own shade of red lipstick. Hashtag, goals!
BONUS: GLOSS BOMB
While we often see Maine Mendoza wearing her lipstick matte, we do believe she rocks the glossy lip perfectly, too. Bratz Doll in full effect!
