MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Review + Swatches

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

Happy Monday everyone!

I really don’t reach for liquid lipsticks at all anymore because they dry out my already-dry lips and they crumple, flake and wear horribly throughout the day. However, this formula by MAC is definitely worth a try if your like me and avoid liquid lipsticks at all costs!

Excuse the out-of-focus picture above but I wanted to show you the shape of the applicator. It is super easy to get a nice sharp edge with it and I’m able to over-line my lips, which I slightly do everyday without going in with a lip liner! The applicator makes applying this super fast and easy. The formula itself feels like nothing on your lips and I’m not exaggerating! It’s feather light; that you forget that you have lipstick on and that’s amazing for a matte liquid lipstick. It’s also much more forgiving on dry patches than other formulas I’ve tried; it doesn’t exaggerate and cling to it.

This lipstick fades away nicely; it doesn’t crumble but rather fades evenly throughout the day and after eating. It’s transfer-proof just like most other liquid lipstick formulas and is removable with oil.

As you can see from the swatches above; this formula dries down much darker so beware of that. It takes a minute or two to fully dry down. I really like this formula and will definitely get other shades!

What do you guys think about liquid lipsticks? Are you over them?

  1. The shade is so pretty! I’ve never been a huge fan of liquid lipsticks but looking at the swatches on your hand it doesn’t look too bad 😀 – Katie
