Woohoo! The Mac Retro Matte liquid lip colors are finally here and I picked up 5 shades. As it is launching today in India, I thought of giving you a sneak peek of the shades I got and review one of the prettiest shades in the range. These have been added to the permanent range and hence you can pick them slowly and steadily unlike the limited edition ones. Phew! Okay, here we go!
Price – Rs 1800/- for 5ml
My Experience with Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor Tailored To Tease:
Look-wise the packaging is a hybrid between the regular lipsticks by Mac and liquid lip colors. The applicator is handy and user friendly. The ingredients and all details are mentioned on the outer paper carton. The shade name is mentioned on the tube as well as on the carton. The tube is transparent so you can easily find the shade in your stash, also if you have more than one from the same range.
The texture of the lip color is super creamy and smooth. It glides on the lips like butter and settles to an ultra matte finish. The shades have varied consistency, so each one has a different texture. This particular shade is a clear winner in terms of texture and pigmentation. One swipe of the color covers the lips completely and shows up as a true shade. Due to the super matte texture, exfoliation and moisturisation is recommended as it tends to show the dry patches.
The shade is a gorgeous pink with bluish undertones. One of the prettiest shades in the whole range, this pink is suitable for lots of skin tones and age groups. If you are fond of pinks you have to try out this shade. One swipe brightens up the face and is enough to give a lift to the whole makeup look.
The staying power is incredible. It does not move of smudge at all as long as it is not messed with. I have to use an oil based makeup remover to completely remove it from the lips. It does not stain the lips, nor does it go patchy. This has survived meals and stayed strong for more than 8 hours on my lips. After 2 hours the lips tend to feel a bit stretchy and hence I apply a bit of matte balm on top to bring the comfortable feel to the lips. Though a bit pricey, the shade is a collector’s item and I am wearing it almost every single day since I bought it 2 weeks back.
