Happy New Year beautiful people! May this year be rich with blessings of love, joy, warmth, and laughter. I know I am late to review liquid lipstick from MAC but as they say, “better late than never”. Liquid lipsticks are my favourite kind. I have always loved the matte finish and have been by amazed till my twenties to see how on few females the lipstick stays put for long even after heavy meals, whereas, mine couldn’t even survive a coffee! Thinking that matte lipsticks will solve the purpose of staying on for long, I bought MAC’s Lady Danger. It is the only matte lipstick I own till date, but the formula is highly unforgiving on my dry lips, doesn’t matter how well I exfoliate or hydrate. With launch of liquid lipsticks matte finish and my dry lips have become best of friends!
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade Feels so Grand is the prettiest red that I have ever owned. The texture is very light: slightly mousse like that dries down to a matte finish and the colour is very well pigmented. One layer is enough for a perfect opaque finish. It neither feels dry on the lips nor does it get accentuated in the fine lines. The colour does stay on for long but needs to be reapplied after food (especially oily kind) and drinks. The formula is not completely transfer proof, it does transfer to mugs when you drink. And before I forget, the applicator is simply amazing.
The touch up is mainly required on the centre of the lips but when reapplied it crumbles and makes the lips look very dry. Hence, it is better to take off the lipstick completely and apply it all over again. Overall, I personally love this colour a lot! And I don’t mind retouching as most liquid lipsticks require touch up after having Indian meal.
Have you ever tried Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick? What do you think of it?
