Hey lovely people!
I am back again with another edition of , ” Are They Worth The Hype?”. This edition features the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours.
Not too long ago MAC re released their collection, adding some new shades. The first release that they came out with, I was not impressed… at all! I found the formula ( especially in the darker shades ) were extremely streaky and not long lasting at all.
I had a gift card to MAC, and was in the market from some new products, so I decided to give these liquid lipcolours a try once again.
I love liquid lipsticks. There are three things I look for when purchasing a liquid lip product:
1: Are they long lasting?
2: How do they feel on the lips? Are they super drying?
3: How do they apply ?
1: These liquid lipcolours are SUPER long lasting! I wore this product for about 8 hours ( a full work day) and I didn’t have to reapply once! I even had a sub sandwich for lunch and drank a soda without a straw and make lipstick was still intact. Towards the end of the day, I did start to see a little feathering around the sides, and a little bit missing from the middle. But it wasn’t super obvious.
2. The first time I tried these products, they were super uncomfortable for me . Extremely drying and streaky and crumbly. But this new formula is completely different. They were very comfortable on the lips throughout the entire time of wearing it. The fact that they are more of a matte suede finish, I think helps them not to dry out my lips.
3.The liquid lip colour has a doe foot applicator which makes for a smooth and easy application. The applicator holds a lot of product so I would suggest that you wipe off some of the product before you apply.
4: Let’s talk about the packaging. I’m not impressed at all. We all know that MAC lipsticks have that classic packing: matte black tube with the silver line in the middle and the silver branding. The liquid lip colour packaging basically kept the black matte top and a clear plastic tube . I guess they wanted to keep their products packaging consistent but to me it kinda fell short!
I purchased the shade “Oh Lady” and I absolutely love it! I will definitely think about investing in a few other shades.
These products retail for $21.00 ( Canadian) and you get 5 ml of product in each tube.
Would I repurchase this product? Absolutely! Are they worth the hype? Yup!!
I love liquid lipsticks! What are some of your favourite brands?
