A good light orangey red listed as "copper" but can go on as red if you have pigmented lips. It ranges from light dull orange on some to brick red (on me.) Flattering even if you have neutral or cool tone skin. I don't look good in blue reds. I can wear brown reds like Viva Glam 1 and this looks great on me too. It will make your teeth look more yellow (hence one lippy off) but if …Read more

If you are warm toned and light-medium, medium, or medium dark, then please stop what you are doing and go order this lipstick.

I have at least 25 different MAC lipsticks, but for whatever reason passed up Chili time and time again. Last week I finally ordered a tube last minute with my Nordstrom order. I WISH I had purchased this last year for Fall because it is the perfect autumn …

I thought this would be a nice orangey red but I guess it depends on your skin tone, on my olive toned skin it appears to be a bright red not much orange! Formula is nice, creamy, sets to a matte but not drying but I prefer glossy lips so I tend to top it up.

Chili is Mac's best-selling lipstick of all time--11 are bought every minute globally. (I love trivia, especially about makeup.)????
I think the other famous Mac reds--Ruby Woo and Russian Red-- are beautiful on other people, but they just don't look great on fair-medium, warm, blond moi. But enter Chili and I am in burnt-orange heaven. (Go Longhorns!) I find it easy to apply …

A very special '90s-flashback matte rusty red that's still relevant as hell today. The only reason I'm not giving this 5 lippies is that orangey shades like this make my teeth look yellower than they are. It's not MAC's fault-- but it's the reason I only reach for Chili every so often. Other than the teeth thing, Chili looks fantastic against my light golden-toned …Read more

Of all my MAC lipsticks, this one is my favourite. I was surprised because I don't gravitate toward brick red or rust shades. This is so unique that it's hard to describe but I'll just say Chili is a perfect name for it. It is reminiscent of red chili powder. It's more brown than red or orange. The texture is both creamy and substantial so it stays perfectly applied for a long …Read more

This is a matte warm rusty red with lots of orange tones. It is the lipstick equivalent of the Burnt Umber Crayola crayon.

It's a beautiful shade. I highly recommend trying it on first though - it looks very different on me than in most pics I found online. (I have olive skin, and dark hair/eyes.) It can look like a straight up orangey red in photos, and it does feel like that …

I own 3 MAC red lipsticks- Russian Red, Ruby Woo and Chili. Of all of these reds, Chili is the only one I'll repurchase.

Ruby Woo is too strong and almost garish against my skin, Russian Red is only slightly better but Chili is my perfect red. It's warm (because of the orange tones) and muted (because of it's brown tones).

For reference I'm an NC42 with …

This shade was so hyped up in Asia. I purchased it to use in the winter season, but for some reason, instead of bringing colour to my face, the brick red sapped it from my cheeks. It really depends on your colouing for whether this is a hit or miss. I looked ill. I passed it on to a friend who loves it.
I favour brighter shades like Dangerous, Lady Danger and So Chaud.
For reference …
