I love matte lipsticks and was eagerly waiting for the launch of Retro Matte Collection. If you love Retro Matte formula, then you’d love these lipsticks. I find the new collection to be a bit more soft and creamier in texture. They also glide on easily on the lips but I would recommend using a lip brush to an even application.  MAC RETRO MATTE LIPSTICKS are highly pigmented and a single stroke is enough to achieve an opaque coverage. The wear time of these lipsticks are excellent (6 – 8 hours ) and leaves a stain behind as if fades off. The only concern with Retro Matte lipsticks are the super drying formula. However, I condition my lips an hours before and dab off the excess on a tissue before application. Also, exfoliation really helps !

  1. Is this collection available in all stores across India?

  2. Hi Hina,
    I’ve super dry lips, do you think I can manage retro matte lipsticks with a lip balm underneath or should I skip it? :-/

    • Hey Ghayu, Yes it would work. Make sure you keep your lips hydrated and apply a lip balm few hours before. Before the application, dab off the excess on a tissue paper and apply the lipstick. It would work like a charm 🙂

  3. Hey,
    I’m looking for a pink with a hint of red. You think All Fired Up would be a good choice? It looks stunning on you!

    P.S. My skin tone is a little darker than yours.

  4. nice shades, are these drying?? they look bit in pics specially light shades

  5. The based lipsticks looks awesome on you.

  6. wow wow wow ! loved each and every clicks as well as the swatches 🙂
