MAC Retro Matte Lipstick - £15.00
The MAC Retro Matte Collection was released early September and was inspired by the popular Ruby Woo Retro Matte Formulae. Due to the success of Ruby Woo, MAC decided to create 7 more exciting shades with a Retro Matte finish.
Retro Matte Finish
The Retro Matte formula is a little less drying than the standard Matte, though I do recommend exfoliating and moisturising your lips before applying your lipstick. It is a fact that your lipstick sits better and will look better depending on the condition of your lips. If you feel that this finish is too drying for you, don't let it put you off, simply add some gloss for extra moisture.
The newest editions to my Retro Matte collection - given I already own Ruby Woo, which is my all time favourite red lipstick and definitely my signature choice, are 'Relentlessly Red' and 'Flat out Fabulous'. I will review Relentlessly Red at a later date but today's post is all about..
Flat out Fabulous!
Flat out Fabulous is a gorgeously bright plum which is very vibrant, perfect for any occasion. I think this will look amazing on any skin tone. As you can see from the picture, I am really pale so if you have a similar skin tone and don't think you can carry off a bright lip - think again. I am the Queen of pale.
I prefer a matte finish to that of the creamsheens, I find them pretty but sometimes a bit 'melty' if that makes sense.
I am currently on the look out for a darker purple shade so if you have any recommendations for me, please do leave me a comment at the bottom. What is your favourite lipstick finish?
