MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks launched new shades at the beginning part of 2017, and while they do look pretty bold in the tubes, some of the shades I got I might actually wear in public! Lol.
While the Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks are in fact matte, they’re not uncomfortable. A little dry on the lips, but that’s the nature of the game with liquid lipsticks. I’m going to be honest — I don’t know if it’s only my lips but the colours don’t seem to last the intended time on me. I get a funny lip-liner look when I wear them for more than an hour. I haven’t tried wearing them with lipliner, but perhaps that’ll be my next experiment with these.
Thinking the middle shade (Ess-presso) would be the easiest colour to wear on my complexion, I was wrong. I much prefer the cement-grey called Café Au Chic, and the blackened grape shade took me by surprise too, sure it’s a bold lip but that’s all in right now!
A few questions for you: What are your thoughts on this formula from MAC? Do you own any? Would you wear any of the shades I have on my lips, above? If you were to select any of the three above which would you choose?
