Review: M.A.C Lipstick in Retro

 

Recently picked up this gorgeous lipstick. Isn't it just perfect for autumn and winter? This Mac Lipstick in Retro is a gorgeous teracotta/rusty red colour. It's not an in the face red, but almost a muted red, due to it's brown and peachy tones and pink undertones, making it perfect for every day wear.
It is one of Mac's satin formulas which means great and even pigmentation, non-drying on the lips and a semi-matte finish. It is creamy to apply and I would suggest using a lipliner. I picked up Mac's lip pencil in Chicory to go with this. It's just a tint lighter creating a soft gradient, ombre effect.
It is a lipstick not very popular in the blogging world, but it's my favourite. This colour will suit a lot of skintones and hair colours, so honestly, why not?

  4. I'm not a huge fan of brown based lipsticks, they remind me of bad 90's make-up lol. I know it's becoming a trend and all but I'm not sure I can embrace it!
