As mentioned in my earlier post, I managed to get the three MAC Retro Matte lipsticks which appear to be limited edition but since MAC haven’t been very consistent with their messaging, it might actually be coming back. For now though, the MAC UK website is showing all but these three as available. If you want the three that I’ve reviewed, which are: Steady Going (light pink), Runway Hit (nude) and Fixed on Drama (deep wine), visit Selfridges before it sells out. I had a look this morning and they’re still in stock.
Like Ruby Woo, the lipsticks are great quality. Matte lipsticks in general are quite drying for me and these are no different. The colours are all great, though I wouldn’t say that you can’t find these colours anywhere though the Matte formula is what sells it. (P.s you can just make any lipstick matte with a bit of translucent powder!)
MAC Retro Matte – Steady Going
The formula is a little drying but not as much as Ruby Woo and Fixed on Drama are. It glides easily on the lips and gives a nice coverage. The colour is a strong light pink shade. It lasted around 5 hours on me.
MAC Retro Matte – Runway Hit
This lipstick was probably the most hydrating (as much as it can get from a Matte formula). It glides well on the lips and gives a nice even coverage. The colour is more pink than nude as the collection suggests. This also lasted around 5 hours on me.
MAC Retro Matte – Fixed on Drama
Of the three I reviewed, Fixed on Drama was probably the least hydrating and slightly uncomfortable to wear because it is so drying. It is very similar to how Ruby Woo feels on me. It doesn’t glide as easily on application but it has a good opaque and even coverage. This also lasted around 5 hours on me – the colour somewhat retains very slightly like a stain after 5 hours.
Let me know what you think!
