It seems that it was looooooong time ago when MAC Cosmetics announced that they were adding liquid lipsticks to their already amazing line of lipsticks. Of course, I flipped. These will be permanent and there’s a great selection of colors. I chose 4 (for now) to test and share with you!
Let’s see the colors we will be looking at today!
– Tailored to Tease
– Dance With Me
– Oh Lady
– High Drama
I love how they incorporated their lipstick packaging into the liquid lipstick packaging. In pictures I had seen online, I found them to be a little silly looking, but they are actually pretty cute!! The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour applicator is a teardrop shape, which is one of my favorite applicator shapes because it makes it easy to line and fill in the lips with color. YES, these DO smell like vanilla like their lipstick counterparts!
Let’s move on to the swatches!
Tailored to Tease is a gorgeous fuchsia, which is quite flattering and creamy to apply!
Dance With Me, a cranberry red, is a stunning deep red that is ripe.
Oh Lady is the one that I wanted the most! And, it did not fail to please. This deep plum beauty is just that!
And, finally, High Drama is a gorgeous deep dark blackened purple. This one is just vampy and amazing!
I was impressed with the creamy almost mousse-like formula of the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours. The vanilla scent made me happy because I knew I was curious if they smelled as delicious as the MAC lipsticks, and they do! The formula goes on extremely smooth and dries quickly to a retro matte (flat) finish. It is comfortable to wear, but if you have dry lips, then make sure you keep your lips moisturized and exfoliated (and moisturized again) before you apply this lipstick. Oil will definitely break it down, but the darker shades stain and wear off gracefully. For example, I’ve been wearing High Drama, and I ate a burger and had a drink of water or two, and my lips still have the color on STRONG. That’s pretty good lasting power! Make sure you check my Instagram for pictures of wearing down, etc.
