MAC Retro Matte Lipsticks are one of the mattest lip formulas available with MAC. I have the shade Relentellesly Red from the collection which is a pretty pink-red. I love the shade on me, but the formula is a bit drying. The lipstick is completely transfer-proof and stays on for a long period of time.

The MAC retro matte lipstick is truly one of the best. I own the Ruby Woo shade and it is really so pretty. A perfect matte lipstick it is indeed. I love its creamy texture and is quite long-lasting too. I had an amazing experience with it.

About the product: MAC's retro matte lipstick range has one of the best shades. From outrageously bold and beautiful to very soft and subtle colors. It is MRP is 1650 INR. It has availability issues. These lipsticks mostly remain out of stock. My experience: M.A.C makes one of the best lipsticks. I have two shades D for dangerous and Velvet Teddy. The D for dangerous is a very bold and beautiful shade that goes for the party look. The velvet teddy is very nude and pinkish shade which goes with everyday look. The lipstick is smudge-proof and stays for long. The color is quite vivid and bold. My experience: Must have lipstick. It is a little expensive but worth trying.

Mac Lipsticks are well known for their formula, it glides on lips and stays for long. The pigmentation is perfect and Retro matte does need a little moisturization before application but it is worth the price to own Mac collection

I’m sure all lipstick lovers would swear that the shade - ruby woo is one of the best red shades! You can wear it for every occasion - suits every time. It gives a perfect matte finish and is an all - time classic. A frequent buyer loves to stock this in their shelves. The pigment and the look that is lipstick has is commendable. It feels comfortable to wear. MAC never disappoints!

The product is very satisfying although it gets too expensive for daily wear but is perfect for the occasional wear as one of that costs you more than 3000Inr rs while the size of the product is very small although the size is small but the texture is really good it just takes two strokes and your lips are bought to life.It feels creamy yet gives a matte effect which feels even better your lips Don't dry out unlike other matte lipsticks

Mac as a makeup brand needs no introduction almost every young girl has some or the other Mac product in her makeup bag. I remember buying my first Mac Lipstick for my 16th birthday. It was my most special buy; it was a beautiful nude shade Mehr. And ever since then there was no looking back, I keep going back to Mac for that shade and many others. Also they say everybody has their kind of perfect right shade of Red Lipstick. I again found mine at Mac, it’s the Ruby Woo from Mac Retro Matte Lipstick, and I have never resorted to any other red after using this. I feel it’s the right kind of red for Indian skin tone. These comes in six different shades, as already said mine is Ruby Woo, you can find your perfect red lipstick. Because I have dry lips, I always look for matte shades that will not make my lips drier, and this one just fits in perfect there. It keeps my lips moisturised yet gives a beautiful matte effect. These lipsticks are little over priced but they come with a long shelf life of 3 years that totally make it worth the investment and bonus is that you get a good quality product for your lips. I also feel that this lipstick transfers a little bit as its highly pigmented, so you might always want to carry this along for a retouch as needed. Also I feel its very easy to remove this, I just use a cotton swab with some water based makeup remover and I am sorted. Further more I have realised that, if applied with help of a brush this comes out with more precision compared to when you just glide it.

“What are you wearing?”- A question I always get when I wear MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Ruby Woo. Ruby Woo is my first red. Before this, I never wore any red. It was a big risk. But when I tried it on my visit to MAC store, it looked ravishing!Ruby woo’s pigmentation is a show stopper! Just one swipe is enough. But since I’m extra, I wear two coats. Even then it does not smear. It glides on so smoothly and stays that way for a good 4-5 hours (when I don’t eat). It does transfer by the way. That’s why it does not last when I eat my meals.MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Ruby Woo gives a matte finish, but though it gives a matte finish, it does not sit on the fine lines of my lips. It isn’t drying but very comfortable to wear. I have dry lips, but it works very well on me.I will definitely be recommending it. There are different beautiful shades as well. I wanted to get all of them but I was short on budget. When I have enough, I will be trying all the shades for sure!

I love nude shades! So, when I saw Runway Hit, without a second thought, I bought it. Runway Hit is a very beautiful nude. It has hints of a coral-peachy shade, so it’s not entirely nude. Which makes it a very versatile shade. I was using it for every occasion, it is one of the colors that goes with everything.But the love ended after three weeks. It is partially my fault though. I kept my lipstick in my handbag and was doing fieldwork. It was a sunny day. To my horror, I came back home with a melted lipstick! Like seriously? It melted! I tried freezing it, but now it is just a mess. Lesson learned! Please don’t make the same mistake.I don’t want to repurchase it because I mostly work outdoors so this might happen again.

The best lipstick that ever existed! It's a true purple shade lipstick with blue undertones, which suits my dark skin very well. Its staying power is better than most of the drug store lipsticks I have ever used. I got my first the shade All Fired Up two years back, and since then I am hooked to it. The cute bullet case lasts very long. So in a span of two years, I just had to buy it three times. The third case I bought three months ago and I still have a lot left. I love the matte finish which leaves a slight sheen. It is the best bold shade for dark skin for me!

MAC cosmetics was the first high-end brand I was introduced to as a teenager, and since then I have a thing for MAC products, especially their range of lip colors. I have a big collection of it. One of my favorites is the shade Dangerous. From the day I purchased it, I have loved it. I don’t use it every day because it is indeed a bold color. But on special occasions, I lean on this shade only. Despite being matte, it blends nicely for an ombre lip look. I will recommend it any day.
