MAC Retro Matte Lipstick- All Fired Up Review

I have been hunting for this retro matte lipstick ever since I tried Riri Woo, but as usual stocks were out and I kept waiting for a call from MAC store. I almost gave up hope of getting it but, then one day they called me and I rushed out to get this one. There was one more shade in my mind which is similar to All Fired Up (Relentlessly Red), please read on further to know more about it.

Product Description: Inspired by Ruby Woo’s overwhelming popularity and one-of-a-kind texture, M•A•C introduces new bold shades in its Retro Matte finish. Eye-catching colours like Dangerous and All Fired Up create a look that’s fiercely feminine. M•A•C also premieres Pro Longwear Lip Pencils in a vibrant colour palette, giving this long-lasting and transfer-proof lip pencil an exhilarating makeover.

Price: INR 1190 for 3 gm/0.1 US oz …yes they have hiked the prices again *cry*

Packaging: It comes in the usual MAC black bullet case. I expected more innovative packaging for the price they demand. Packaging disappoints me.

My take on MAC Retro Matte Lipstick- All Fired Up:

I loved the RiRi Woo from MAC and wanted to try out all the shades but because of the constant non-availability I lost hope of ever getting another. But then one day I could finally get my hands on it. All Fired Up is a part of the permanent collection unlike the RiRi Woo and there are several gorgeous shades to try out.

I actually had two shades in mind when I went to buy this, the other being Relentlessly Red but as soon as I swatched both on my hands I got clear which one I wanted. Relentlessly Red lipstick look very much similar to All Fired Up in the bullet, it’s hard to tell any difference, but as you see them together you will realize that there is a major difference in the undertones. All Fired Up is a bright fuchsia pink as described by MAC and I agree to that, whereas Relentlessly Red is more pink with coral and neon undertones which I don’t prefer personally but I have seen girls looking awesome in that shade as well.

The formula of Retro Matte, as we all know, can be very cruel and unforgiving on dry lips, so do make sure to prep the lips well before or they might look flaky and tacky. When I compare the texture with RiRi Woo, this one is less dry and more on the creamy side…I am not sure why because if they are from the same collection they should have the same texture and feel naa? But I am not complaining as it feels more comfortable on lips *hihi*

Now coming to the color payoff Oh my my!!!! I have no words as this deposits 80-90% pigment in single swipe and covers even the most pigmented lips. I had worn it for about 6-7 hours (including meals) without retouching. t fades with a tint which looks nice as well. I have used the Colorbar Berry Rose lip liner for lining the lips…yes you need one because it’s so pigmented that minor flaws of application look amplified *rofl* I can’t tell you how much I love the shade. This might be a good choice for those who hesitate wearing reds.
