Makeup’s making some bold modern statements this season and it’s oscillating between two extremes – the dewy, fresh-out-of-gym no-makeup look that hinges on great skin and dramatic elements that use bright cherry and aquatic hues – it’s all or nothing this Spring 2016, according to M.A.C.
With that in mind, they’ve just dropped their latest collection for the season, and the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is already an instant favourite for its super pigmented shades and creamy, even application that dries out to the perfect matte, suede-like finish that stays on for ages without drying your lips out.
Here’s a look at our favourite shade, Recollection – reminiscent of the disco glam era and Rihanna at her finest in equal parts.
We’re not kidding about the longwearing promise, either – here’s what it looks like after six hours of wear, including lunch (a sandwich and a mushroom soup) and about 4 people asking me what that cool shade is.
If you love a rich colour payoff with literally one swipe, this is your go-to guy. And if you’ve been thinking of giving dark trends a go, there are plenty of shades to choose from, too!
One caveat: this stuff is super pigmented, so be careful with the application. A little mistake like going beyond your lip line and you’ll need a heavy duty cream makeup remover to get this stuff off – once it's on, it doesn’t budge.
You’ll need a strong makeup remover to take this off at the end of the day but hey, it’s a small price to pay. Go ahead: channel your inner RiRi!
