MAC is a favorite brand for almost everyone. Who doesn’t love MAC products? They deliver such great quality products to us. But the problem is that we do not find any MAC stores in all cities. No worries now, and thanks to Nykaa for introducing and bringing MAC to their store. Along with Mac, Nykaa does sell good high end brands now. So MAC launched almost 12 new nudey shades which are a part of the Spring 2017 collection. And am glad that Nykaa has already had them. I was like whattt??!! and immediately checked with their shades in stock and went through some swatches online and while  looking, I saw one of my friend wearing this particular shade and woah it stole my heart. And now here it is, in my hands now. Yes, I did get it, thanks to her for introducing me such a gorgeous shade.

I bought mine from the Nykaa Luxe store. Nykaa Luxe is a store where they sell all the luxury brands and they do take care in packing  these in a totally different packaging.

For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. MAC introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of color in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.


  • Long wearing, 8 hours.
  • Color wears evenly and smoothly for 8 hours.
  • Provides stay true color.
  • Non bleeding and non feathering

I picked up the shade – TOPPED WITH BRANDY. It is a mauvey-browny nude shade which would complement most deeper Indian skin tones. For all the fair tones, it will look as a deep mauvey nude. This shade can be a daily wear lip shade for me.

PACKAGING :  The packaging hasn’t changed any from the old retro matte liquid lipsticks. It comes in a  clear glass tube with a silver rim at the neck and silver embossed MAC on the cap. Quite easy to pick the shade from the stash, but if you own all the shades from this Spring collection, It would be a tough task to select your shade. It has got a leaf shaped doe foot applicator which is good when creating the crisp outline at the edges without the help of any lip brush.

FORMULA, TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION :   The  Mac Retro matte liquid lipcolour has a light weight formula, which feels comfortable on the lips. They apply as a liquid and set to a transfer proof matte finish in no time. It is non-tacky and it does not feel crumbly on the lips. They have  great pigmentation, in one swipe we get a complete opaque finish. So there wouldn’t be any necessity to layer this lipstick on. These liquid lipsticks have a great staying power too. On me, it stayed for more than 7 hours and it did survive a slight snack in between. But it is very dring after a long day, like after 3-4 hours the lips get very dry and cracked up.

And yeah, I’ve observed this with this shade. After an hour or so of wearing this lipstick, as the day passes on, this shade kind of turns more darker and enhances the grey undertones. Did anyone else observe this? Or is it only  me…Do lemme know about this! I’m guessing it, maybe when the liquid lipstick when it comes in contact with the lips, the warmth of the skin has got to do something with it. I have no idea about this.
