MAC Cosmetics has done it again. Just released last week, this new addition has already become a crowd pleaser. The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, yes it is quite a mouthful, will definitely become a year-round favourite. This product goes on wet and dries completely matte, giving you a very polished look. I tried out the shade “Recollection” and cannot wait to get my hands on the other shades. I applied in around 12:30pm and did not have to reapply throughout the entire day. The test was definitely fair, I ate, drank, and went to the gym, and the colour did not budge. It may have looked a tad odd wearing such a purple colour whilst working out but I just had to test it out. The colour payoff is amazing, what you see in the packaging is definitely what you get.
One of my fears when trying out matte lip products is whether or not it will dry out my lips throughout the day, but the Mac’s Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is very comfortable and not harsh on my lips whatsoever. In comparison to products such as the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, this product will not dry your lips out. The Liquid Lipcolour is very longwearing no matter what the activity. I would definitely recommend this product for a night out because there will be no need for touch ups. Touching up your makeup might become a challenge especially the more intoxicated one might get throughout the night 😛 The applicator itself is another pro for this product, it is flat on both slides but a bit pointed at the top so applying the lipstick and creating the perfect lip shape is much easier. The formulation is great; the product glides on nicely and the product is not watery but a good consistency, allowing for a clean finish. In Canada, the Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks retails for $24, which is a fantastic price for such a lasting lip product.
Until next time.
