Huge fan of MAC lipsticks and this one is fab! Love the dark colour, it is very different to anything else I have ever had and I personally love the way it looks. Application is a little trickier than most lipsticks, I found trying to apply it with my lipstick brush (Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush) wasn't as easy as normal because the lipstick really needs to be applied with a heavy coat to get the right colour so its easiest to just use the lipstick itself rather than a brush. I also always use my MAC Prep + Prime Lip before applying my lipstick for the best results. Some people find 15.50 expensive for a lipstick but personally I think it's a great price for a great lipstick.

Pros:
- great colour
- keeps lips hydrated
- usual great MAC lipstick

Cons:
- tricky application
- it's a "Marmite" lipstick - by this I mean people will either love it or hate it but you well definitely receive comments the first time you wear it! Some people absolutely adored this lipstick where as others hated it and thought it was too "goth".

Overall:
- I personally love this lisptick, it's better than the usual red or pink and it most certainly stands out. Make sure it matches your skin tone before buying it and you have to have the confidence to wear it as not everyone will like it, but each to their own and if you like it, own it!

O K so, the colour of this lipstick is probably the best colour i've bought, until they bought out the smoked purple in matte, which is the reason I wouldn't buy this again: it comes off on EVERYTHING, it does not set. I use setting powders, primers, liners. Everythangggggg haha! I'm gonna keep this short and sweet: over all, I wouldn't recommend this product, being MAC I have high expectations, it is a shame as it's such a gorgeous colour. But ohwell! Can't have your cake and eat it too hey. x

Beautiful vampy lip color, looks great and needs a bold liner...Vino by Mac gives it a redder the tint. super dark and creamy requires touch ups during the night.

I use it with MAC NIGHTMOTH lip liner and it has amazing payoff & pigmentation - as most MAC lipsticks do. Give it a shot if you're feeling bold and wan't something that's close to black...but not quite black. :)

I bought this with Mac Nightmoth liner as I wanted something very striking. (I'm very pale with neutral undertones)I was so excited to buy this, as at the time it was the darkest (non-black) colour I could get my hands on. I do find it a bit drying on the lips but proper prep before had using a lip exfoliator and moisturiser (Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream) and you're good to go. In real life it's a blackened purple shade but it photographs much lighter, almost like a dark plum. I would 100% repurchase. I have worn it with everything from just a winged liner to a neutral eye to a dramatic cut crease to a dark smokey. It is bold but with the correct blush I think this can work for everyone.

This was my very first mac lipstick and it is my favorite! I had been consistently wearing dark lipstick since I was 12 and I've wanted a blackened purple since I was 14 but the only thing I could find that was the perfect shade wise was wet n wild's vamp it up (I know, I'm getting sidetracked but I have to make this point before I get to the good stuff) Don't get me wrong, I love wet n wild mega last lipsticks but that specific shade was too thick in consistency for me, it felt heavy and uncomfortable on my lips. Cherry bomb and Ravin' raisin happen to be some of my favorite lip colors and they apply with out a problem. I wasn't the only one who had that unfortunate experience with vamp it up, which was a shame because that was the exactly color I wanted. For a while I tried to achieve that color by mixing a purple and a black eyeliner (needless to say, it didn't work very well) Until last year when I walked into my local mac store to repurchase my staple black eyeliner when I saw a girl wearing the shade of lipstick I had been searching for all these years. When I asked her what was on her lips she said it was Mac's cyber. Upon searching the lipstick I realized that its perfect. It's a beautiful blackened purple in a soft satin formula. I was absolutely over the moon with the fact that it was a satin texture. Satin formulas are my favorite from mac. I've heard a lot of people wish that cyber was matte because they say the satin formula is too sheer but in my opinion that quality is one of the things that makes it so perfect because you can sheer it out and have a light wash of purple or you can build up a couple layers and have the full opacity and have that lovely deep blackened purple. A lot of people say that this is a very bold color and only for the daring or a "good mixing color" but I would never mix it with anything, it's absolutely beautiful on its own! Cyber is my everyday lip color. Whether its spring, summer, fall or winter, cyber is always on my lips. Take into consideration that I have a pretty traditional goth style so this is an everyday color for me.

I really enjoy this color. It is a very dark and daring color, but it goes on very nicely and very evenly. The formula is really nice, and I don't notice a smell at all. It also stays on nicely.

This is an extremely austere and striking lipstick on pale skin, a kind of blackish-bruised satin plum. I personally love this look, especially with a toned-down eye and flawless foundation. You'd need a lip liner, because Cyber is extremely dark and creamy, and as such it will be obvious if it runs outside your natural lip shape. Overall I love this lipstick, and I think it's a must-have for people with pale skin looking for that daring, couture winter look. 9/10.

I have no idea what possessed me to buy this colour. I am NC25-35, depending on the season, and I really didn't think it could suit me when I initially tried it at home. If you're familiar with Clinique 'Black Honey', Cyber is like her edgier sister. But I've noticed it looks great once I have a tan. And I love the texture and the vanilla scent. A good lip liner is compulsory to avoid feathering (at my age!) and I often layer it with a violet lip gloss to tone it down a tad which makes it look fabulous and less scary when my skin is on the paler side.
