MAC Cosmetics recently released new shades of their Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour and with the news that Ulta Beauty will be launching MAC Cosmetics on May 7th (you can browse online beginning April 23rd, and then shop online May 7th), we wanted to share some swatches of the shades that we received. The colors range from earthy neutral hues to warm browns – there is even a hint of a bold berry and a blackened teal shade. These are available for $21 each (for 0.17 fl. oz) and is a part of their permanent collection – 32 shades all together. With Flash From left to right, we have: Flesh Stone – a neutral grey brown Dash O’ Spice – a warm yellow brown Cafe Au Chic – a true warm taupe So Me – a muted plum Simply Smoked – a neutral taupe Ess-presso – a deepened chocolate brown Chocotease – a warm brown with red undertones Uniformly Fabulous – a blackened berry/grape Young Attitude – a blackened teal (hues of dark blue/green) Without Flash Here, you can get a look at the shades in real time http://blog.spaweek.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/MVI_8125.m4v Honestly, I love the formula of these. It is very soft, non-drying and comes out true to color with one use of the wand (both sides). The applicator really sealed the deal on these for me. It reminds me of the precision tip that Smashbox Cosmetics also uses for their liquid lipsticks. Chocotease: Young Attitude: Uniformly Fabulous So Me: Ess-presso: Simply Smoked: Cafe Au Chic: Dash O’ Spice: Flesh Stone: Which one is your favorite shade? Have you ever tried MAC’s retro matte lipsticks before? 103 Responses Nelle March 26, 2017 Now that I see the colors swatches on your lips, they look fabulous and I am now thinking Uniformly Fabulous and So Me are so me!

I tried the original formula when they first released and honestly I didn’t have a good experience At all. I got 2 deep purple shades, the colors were gorgeous… but the formula cracked and flaked so bad. It was so embarrassing because I was at a public event 😩and the incident scarred me from wanting to try new liquid lippies out. I’m always super cautious or lean towards gloss. I would really like to try the new refomulationn. Reply Evangelia Zachariadou March 12, 2017 I love the *So me *shade!! I’ve heared so many opinions about the retro Mac collection and I ‘m really intrigued! 💋💖 Reply Stephanie March 12, 2017 My favourite shade is So Me.

I’m pretty confident these will feel good on my lips because you have beautiful full lips and I do as well 🙂 most of the issues with that is that it dries them out ridiculously but if you felt like they didn’t then holllaaaa I’m going to mac hehe thanks for the reviews and I can’t wait for the rest of the swatches love! Love your skin tone btw 😘💋 Reply TeAuna M. March 10, 2017 I’ve never tried the retro Matte collection but I see myself getting a couple in the near future!
