The Mac Retro Matte Collection was launched last year and it has been a year that I have been lusting for this particular shade. It appeals to me the most from this range and ever since I bought it , I have been wearing it almost every single day ! Yes, every day !
To wear this, I stopped wearing warmer hued clothes, for it has cool tones and for the last two months, since I bought it, I have been wearing dresses of colors that look good with this lipstick 🙂
Now to say, after Mac Ruby Woo, a retro matte … this is my second love …
Only swatch for now … I hope to review it soon 🙂
Until Next Time 🙂 Take care !
I have reviewed another color from thus range earlier and both the lipsticks have similar properties. To read the review of the other shade click HERE .
The Shade: A Plum Berry Shade . The bullet appears like Mac “Rebel” but it is much lighter and less intense than Rebel, the finish is stark matte that makes it a very pretty color to adorn 🙂
The Texture and smell: Very soft and easy gliding unlike most drugstore matte lipsticks. The lips look soft and feel feather light. Also, it does not settle in the fine lines of the lips. The smell is not much appealing and might seem like crayons. I do not find it bothersome though as it disappears after some time.
The Lasting: It lasts without fading for about four hours without any easting or drinking in between, if applied on its own with any prior lip priming.
The Pigmentation: Impeccable! It applies opaque in a single swipe.
I have only Mac Studio fix over sunscreen on my face.
Summary: One of the best matte lipsticks out there, that too at a price which is very less for its texture and finish. The only con is its availability.
Price: INR 2.95 Euros
Product Score: 4.5/5, it appears much costly than it actually is 🙂
I have been pondering over this look for quite some time , as dark lips are quite a rage , with winter around the corner. I tried to make this wearable, hence kept the eye make up very subtle yet eye catching. Do share your inputs and I hope you shall like my attempt.
Eye Make-up: I have just brushed my eye lids with a nude beige eye shadow and then lined my eyes with a purple colored gel liner. On top of the line, I just patted some purple eye shadow. Then applied kohl and mascara with a light sweep of purple eye shadow on the lower lash line.
On face I have Maybelline airbrush finish foundation and Sleek blush “flushed”.
On lips, I have a deep plum grape shade from Rival Di Loop reviewed here.
