I am a true LOVER lipstick, especially matte! With the timeless glamour it provides I recommend trying it if you never have. My favorite brand right now is MAC, and not just the regular matte lipsticks, but the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours. They were introduced January of last year and I just had to scoop some for my birthday. I’ve been hooked ever since.
They provide a liquid suede finish, a twist to a classic texture. The colors are so robustly saturated that they literally are popping with color. 32 shades will ensure you love at least one color. And with a price tag of $21, I believe it is worth the investment. My two favorites by far are High Drama and Recollection.
Although I love Retro Liquid Matte, some women have complaints:
- Too Dry
- Sloughs off
However, there are raves:
- Highly pigmented
- Easy application
- Lasts for 8 hours
Many of the complaints above are easily solved by applying a lip moisturizer before the matte lipstick application. This prevents the lips from drying out, cracking, or flaking. My personal favorite is EOS visibly soft coconut milk lip balm. I keep it in my purse so I am always ready. Go retro and try some Matte Liquid Lipcolour from MAC.
