MAC Cosmetics: Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor

I am not the biggest fan of MAC Cosmetics, or the customer service they offer (atleast in Dubai), but when I saw Lily Pebble’s review of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, I knew I had to at least try some because:

  1. The nude shades (and even the reds) looked really good
  2. I generally eat up my lipstick really quick and then get really lazy to reapply lipstick and end up looking like a zombie so anything long lasting is welcome
  3. I had no shopping list for the airport, and I knew i HAD to get something

Here are the shades I spotted at the Dubai Duty Free:

Here’s what I picked up: Lady Be Good. Retails for $20 online directly at MAC, AED116 ($31) at the Duty Free, and I am sure it is closer to $35-37 in Dubai retail (will confirm soon)

 

Thoughts & First Impressions

I definitely do feel like these are super long lasting. I tried them on before my flight, ate a burger at the airport, got on a 3 hour flight (that I slept through), and I still had some colour on when I landed.

They are comfortable to wear. My lips didn’t feel dry or patchy or ‘stretchy’ wearing this too long. I also wore it the next day.

I feel like they wear better when layered with another lipstick, lipgloss or lip balm. Also feel like it looks better, but that could just be me.

I wish I wore bold colours, because there are some gorgeous ones in the range.

Some cons: The price. I would definitely not pay full Dubai retail price for these. If I did decide to get another shade, I would probably order it online from the US. Also, I’ve heard that some colours don’t apply as well, so I would definitely try them on first.

Here are some pictures of me wearing it (colour isn’t coming out too well in the picture)
