Love it: M.A.C Retro Matte, back with a vengeance



Call me a little too fond of the nineties - many do! - but I’m always a fan of a seriously matte lip. I’ve been wearing one with pride since I first started slicking on lipstick (no gloss for me) and some of my absolute favourites have been the work of the indomitable M.A.C.
So, it was with much excitement that I greeted the news of the global makeup giant’s Retro Matte collection, which mixes popping colour with a perfect matte texture and has me lusting after every single damn piece. Inspired by the popularity of the iconic red Ruby Woo, M.A.C has revamped this lipstick legend with invigorating, bold-as-brass shades in its Retro Matte finish. Eye-catching new colours like Dangerous and All Fired Up create a look that’s feminine yet fierce, whilst nudes like Runway Hit are absolute essentails. Just looking at swatches of this collection has me all antsy for some fresh matte goodness, I just might have to hit the store to re-stock my favourite Velvet Teddy in advance!
They are also introducing their Pro Longwear Lip Pencils in a vibrant, new colour palette, meaning the average lip lover’s credit card will be getting a serious workout over the next few months.
The Retro Matte line up is:
STEADY GOING light pink matte
RUNWAY HIT light nude matte
DANGEROUS orangey red matte
RELENTLESSLY RED bright pinkish coral matte
ALL FIRED UP bright fuchsia matte
FLAT OUT FABULOUS bright plum matte
RUBY WOO very matte vivid blue red
FIXED ON DRAMA rich wine matte

Arriving October 7 at all M.A.C locations - it will be flat out fabulous indeed!
