What’s New tomorrow on January 7th? It’s the official launch of M-A-C- Cosmetics’ RETRO MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOUR ($20.00).
We say the 15 shades of intense, opaque, liquid lipcolor are definitely long lasting (which we love) and they have a very matte finish. The reason for joy is that it doesn’t look dry and it won’t dry your lips out. Wear it all day and it still color lips, and you can “glam” the matte into shine with a lip gloss when you feel like it, without it fading or major league migration into lip line.
The sponge tipped wand is spade shaped so you can use the tip to define as well as keep the color precise. The flat side delivers the color smoothly to the lips. The colors shown below in the press photos are very bright, the actual lipcolors are more subdued, but have an bold color payoff that looks stunning on your lips.
We didn’t test all of the colors, but we did try three (and we purposely picked very deep colors, although most of them very bright anyway, to see how they wear over time): Fashion Legacy (bold red). Dance With Me (bright red) and To Matte With Love (intense pink/raspberry). The colors on the press photos are brighter and lighter than the colors, in reality. above you can see my actual photo of the shades we tested: Dance With Me, Fashion Legacy, and To Matte With Love.
