Colour correcting is a necessary step in my daily makeup…
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).
Oh, Lady is described as a deep wine.
This gorgeous berry-stained shade was not patchy and was super easy to apply.
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!
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.
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?
