Elegant ballerina twirls. Twinkling lights. The ultimate display of opulence.…
Back in July last year, MAC Cosmetics asked their Facebook fans to decide which retro lipstick and eyeshadow shades to bring back for a limited time. Well, finally the time for the reveal has come! The MAC By Request choices are Pink Poodle, Hoop and Glam lipsticks and Fiction, Diesel and Butterscotch eyeshadows!
This one applied very evenly and was super pigmented. The formula is fairly typical to the MAC satin formula only a little bit less hydrating than normal.
This is very neutral. In some lights I think it’s a touch warm but in others it looks cool. The more photos I see of people wearing this (with all different skintones) the more I realize this is universally flattering!
WEAR TIME: 6-7 hours
This is what I like to call a semi-matte (even though it’s labelled as Matte). It is quite creamy for a matte, not drying at all. And it almost has a sheen to it. One swipe is all you need with this highly-pigmented lipstick, plus it doesn’t bleed/feather.
Because you can’t have enough perfect red lipsticks! Honestly, the blue undertone makes my teeth look really white!
WEAR TIME: 7-8 hours. This is almost transfer-proof and when it does fade, it leaves a beautiful pink stain.
L-R: Glam, MAC RiRi Woo (shown to compare to the Retro Matte formula), The Lip Bar Cosmo (reviewed here)
My thoughts: All 3 of these are a hit for me with Hoop being my absolute favourite. The formulas are amazing (even the Glaze one which is a finish I don’t typically like) and I feel like all 3 shades could work for anyone. Well done, MAC!
Have you picked up any of the MAC By Request collection?
