A Summer Staple: MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor.

I am finally getting into the matte liquid lipcolor craze and for good reason: a matte lipcolor (when done right)  has insane color payoff is usually very long wearing. The latest matte liquid lipcolor that I have been using is MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor and I am OBSESSED. MAC recently re-launched 15 best-selling shades of this popular liquid lipstick and it was the perfect time for me to finally try it.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor glides on the lips with a liquid finish but dries down quickly and stays exactly where you put it. I like to use a lip pencil first, and I am careful to stay within the lines. The finish is a soft, suede-like finish that is matte. This liquid lipcolor is very comfortable to wear; it is not drying and after a few minutes it feels like I am not wearing any lipcolor whatsoever.

Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor lasts until you remove it. I do notice a bit of fading as the day goes on (usually not for six hours or so), but at the end of the day, the shades need to be removed from the lips. To completely remove the lipcolor from lips, I use this cleanser

I have eight of recently relaunched MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor including Burnt Spice, Café Be Chic, So Me, Topped With Brandy, Fashion Legacy, Dance With Me, Oh Lady and High Drama.

I prefer the bolder shades, such as Fashion Legacy, which is a perfect red shade that I was very comfortable wearing.
