I guess MAC realized how awesome the Retro Matte formula was when they were creating the RiRi for MAC lipsticks. So the decided to do a full Retro Matte collection. 8 were released and 5, including all the ones in this post, are permanent.

This one is my favorite. I absolutely adore the shade.

 

All Fired Up- bright fuchsia

This looks completely red in the tube but when applied it turns into your average fuchsia.

 

Dangerous- Orangey Red

Love it! Surprised this isn’t sold out yet. This is my first Pro Longwear Lip Pencil. This baby doesn’t go anywhere. I fell asleep with it one and woke up with most of it still intact.

MAC did a great job with this collection. All of these shades are really pretty and friendly for all skin tones. Some did drag when applied but all are pigmented and opaque. Only thing I noticed about the Retro Mattes, even the RiRi ones, they tend to fade quickly in the middle of the lips.

 

All the shades shown above are permanent so they aren’t going anywhere. Hope you enjoyed my MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Swatches!

  1. They are all beautiful on you! Do you know how fashion boost compare to heroine? Does dangerous look similar to scarlet ibis and lady danger?

  2. Oooh, they all look gorgeous on you!

    I’m just starting to slooowly dip my toes into the bright-lipstick waters, but these are making me want to go for it!

Hey Beautiful! Got something to say?
