So I've been using the liquid lipstick a lot and I enjoy using this product so much. It's so easy to apply especially with the angled lip applicator which helps get the smallest details. I found that it is also long lasting and smudge proof but you do need a lip primer to extend the lipstick use. The product smells amazing and feels so smooth on your lips, it does tend to dry your lips after long use so you will need to moisturize your lips prior to applying lipstick. I've been using "fashion legacy" in the liquid lipstick and I find it is so vibrant and popping and makes my lips look luscious and plump. The only issues I have with the lipstick is the actual packaging, it does get a bit messy at the top. However I still enjoy using this product.

Long lasting but pricey

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip color that provides a splash of color in a liquid-suede finish that loiters. I believe the matte finish is timeless beauty, and MAC has introduced these classic textures with different shades of Retro Matte liquid lip color. Whichever shade you prefer I can assure you one thing is that you would experience a fantastic finish on your lips. I have been using this Lip color for two weeks, and I must say they are long-wearing for about eight hours. The color on the lip wears evenly and smoothly for the entire period and stay its pure color. The Lip color is non-feather and non-bleeding as well. I applied to the lips using the edge of the applicator provided within for a smooth and sharp shape. You must use the tip of the applicator for the flawless application. I would suggest trying blending the edges of the lips for a diffused look before applying the MAC retro matte liquid lip color dries. The MAC retro matte liquid lip color comes in usual black MAC cardboard. Necessary information is printed on the with ingredients used to prepare the lip color. The inner lip color comes in a little stout clear tube with black round twistable cap, and hence it is leak proof — no worries to carry for travel. Removing it is very difficult. I remove it with my coconut oil twice and then with micellar water to completely get rid of it. It stains lips deeply though. Overall this MAC retro matte lip color is impressive if you want a long-lasting, but it is pricey!! This has become my all-time favorite lip color, and yes, it's worth the price. Stays all day without any shade out and it is effortless to apply. I would Definity buy again.

Stays on through drinking and eating.

Not true to color


The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is my new favorite. I have been looking out for a lipstick that will hold up all evening and through my night outs. I do not like carrying a bag or a clutch, and my outfit doesn’t always have a pocket to stash my lipstick.

This lipstick lasted me at least 9 hours with one application: through evening coffee, meetings, dinner, and drinking beer. It is not perfect, but then what is. The lipstick does transfer on to your glass or sandwich, but this lasts for the initial few sips. You can avoid this by dabbing your lip with a tissue post application. It doesn’t need multiple coats. It is not a quick dry lipstick. The applicator is very soft and flat, so you don’t need to clean up the edges of your lips like you need to do it for any other lipstick.

The only thing is that the lipstick dries a few shades darker than what you see in the container. I liked that color too. But if that is something that may bother you, take a trial at the MAC stores and give it about 30 mins to settle down and then decide upon the color. I will be buying more of these and buy some as presents too.

Great matte lipstick at affordable pricing

CONS

Dries out the lips


MAC spoils you for choices. There are always multiple colors that suit you, and you would want to buy them all. MAC has been seen as a luxury brand, at least for me, it is. Hence, I am very selective of what I buy from them and ensure it is something that I would use every day. I hit the lottery with this. I keep looking at myself every time I spot a mirror – the finish is that good.

It is true to its name. It is the perfect matte. MAC claims that it lasts for 8 hours, but for me, it stayed on even after a good night’s sleep. I don’t recommend sleeping with makeup, but for me, it happened by accident. And I was taken back by surprise. My lips were dry in the morning, but I am sure it was because of leaving it on for so long. Other times it just fades away with drinking and eating. But 8 hours is the minimum that it stays on your lips. The pricing is justified for all that it has to offer.

Bleeds


I scanned through the reviews and pictures and decided to buy this product. The packaging and applicator are exceptional, that is the basic you expect from a MAC product. I applied the lip color and went on with my day, only to find myself staring into a nightmare in the bathroom mirror.

The color bleeds into the corners and even a little on the bottom lip. I had to remove my lip color. Makes your lips dry. I had better hopes from a lip color by MAC. If only I could return this product. Sigh!!

Extremely dry

Very dry

Patchy

Bad formulation


I don't even know what it was that I bought. MAC has disappointed me with their new retro matte liquid lip color. I live in the southern part of India, and it is extremely humid here. It dried down within 30 seconds. Tried applying a second coat to manage the dry lips, that made it even worse.

I decided to move on with my day, but my lips began to feel weird. I know this is matte lip color, but this is extremely matte. The colour looks so off for the Indian climate. My lips started to chap shortly, and the color wore off.
