Love it: M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Of the newest addition to their permanent collection, the wonderful people at M.A.C Cosmetics say:
“For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. M.A.C has created an innovation on this classic texture with 15 robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor. Whether you choose the intense fire truck red of Fashion Legacy, the vivid fuchsia of Tailored to Tease or the tantalizing nude of Lady-Be-Good, all these piccolos promise one thing: a big splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that transforms lips instantly and lingers, impossible to forget…”
In other words: give me them ALL right now, as I am immediately obsessed! I’m mad for matte – as any regular reader here will know – and have been waiting for this collection for whet feels like a lifetime, maybe two. And now its here does it deliver? Hell yes, I am an instant fan.
First up, I am rejoicing in the fact that they are CRAZY pigmented. Definitely no subtlety at play here, what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips and it’s glorious. They’re liquid mattes, which means they can be a little drying, but with good lip prep beforehand, you should be fine. I always do the latter and have found the couple of shades I have had to play with totally user-friendly and they last and last… beyond belief. I also haven't needed a liner, just a steady hand a little practice time - bonus!
The shades are amazing, but personally I’m leaning more towards the dark and popping shades rather than creamier nude tones, mainly due to my complexion and age. These sorts of shades when too matte can look chalky on me, but that definitely won’t be the case with everyone and I encourage you all to have a good damn play.
