MAC Retro Liquid Lip Back in Vogue, Dance with Me, Oh Lady and High Drama

My first introduction to MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($24 CAD/$20 USD) was the bright purple shade, Recollection. It was love at first swipe and I had to try more… so here they are, four more shades of this gorgeous liquid matte lipstick!

If you’re new to MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, let me gush for a little bit. It dries down matte but sets like a soft velvet. It’s flexible and doesn’t crack, and it wears well for over 8 hours.

Described as “a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.” And I agree. Despite a little crumbling after eating a greasy hamburger, this liquid lip lasts until you take it off with an oil-based cleanser (I suggest Coconut Oil).

MAC Retro Liquid Lip Oh Lady

Oh, Lady is described as a deep wine.

This gorgeous berry-stained shade was not patchy and was super easy to apply.

MAC Retro Liquid Lip High Drama
High Drama
 is described as a deep dark plum.

Now I am usually hesitant when it comes to deep shades of liquid lipstick, but this wasn’t bad at all. Maybe a bit uneven but totally gorgeous!

MAC Retro Liquid Lip Dance With Me

Dance With Me is described as a deep cranberry red.

This cool-toned red is a real stunner and probably the most even application of the bunch.

MAC Retro Liquid Lip Back in Vogue

Back in Vogue is described as a peachy nude.

Now the lighter shades tend to look a bit more patchy or dry on the lips. But they still wear well and last and last.

For us pale-skinned ladies, finding a nice peachy neutral can be difficult. This one is pretty great for anyone in the NW15-20 range!

And then I had a bit of fun. This is Dance With Me and a layer of Back in Vogue in the centre! Pretty, right?

    Ack, these shades look gorgeous, but I sadly didn’t have the same experience with these. I got the orange shade and after about two hours it went funky on my lips, crumbly and ball-y. 🙁 I returned it. I’m glad you enjoyed them though!

  • I want Oh, Lady! So pretty!

  • I generally opt for lippies that can apply really sheer, or build up. But having a few of these super opaque ones in your collection are also great essentials. Oh, Lady is such a gorgeous shade!
