Another amazing box has arrived all the way from Korea…
From the 15 shades of MAC’s new Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, I chose Recollection to try first. It was a hard decision, but when in doubt…. GO PURPLE!
Recollection is described as an intense bright violet, and that it is. I’ve heard it’s very similar to Heroine (lipstick) but I can’t for the life of me find mine to compare.
But I did dig up my Lime Crime Velvetine in Pansy to compare, and Recollection is a touch lighter and warmer. The formula though, it’s creamier and way more flexible. I find Lime Crime tends to separate and get oily (as you can tell from the wet texture and slight feathering above).
This dries down matte in about a minute. The trick to applying any liquid matte lipcolour is thin layers and do NOT press your lips together. This was two thin layers with about a 30 second dry time in between.
MAC’s formula is very flexible and does not feel too drying. Compared to Lime Crime, Colourpop and H&M, this is a treat! It wore well through a meal and only started to crack a bit after four hours. And the colour is STUNNING!
