Mac Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red Review

If you are a big fan of lipsticks then Mac Retro Matte Lipstick collection is definitely something you should have in your collection or at least go and check out. I totally agree that it’s not so pocket friendly but, believe me, it’s totally worth it. Also, apparently M.A.C Cosmetics has finally launched it’s new Little M.A.C collection with few of their matte and retro matte collection in much reasonable price that matches its mini size. I hope it comes to India soon, in that case we don’t have to whine about the high price and for not being able to grab and try one. 😀
I love Mac Retro Matte Lipsticks,but due to its price even I do think twice before going to the store to buy one. Well, most of my Mac lipsticks came to me as gifts, thanks to all the amazing friends I have around. They know exactly what to gift me on special occasions,  a gift that will bring a huge dumb smile on my face.And, I in fact I actually went super crazy when my dear friend, Kou, gifted me a gift card from M.A.C Cosmetics on this friendship’s day. The next day, even before I hit the store, I knew exactly what I was going to buy. Of course, Lipstick and in the shade Relentlessly Red. (I am never this specific even when I go to a restaurant) 🙂

Mac Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red Review

Mac Relentlessly Red is a bright pinkish coral matte. At first glance it looks a lot like All Fired Up, but it’s much brighter and fresh. This shade has a hint of all my favourite colour; pink, red and coral. If you are someone who loves coral shades then this is definitely the perfect coral red you should try. The red tone of this shade is not too loud, so even a person who  has never dared to try a red lipstick can absolutely rock this shade. I was surprised to see that unlike most of their Retro Matte lipsticks, this lipstick shade glided effortlessly smooth and didn’t dry out the lips like most retro matte lipsticks.

Price : Rs 1,450

My Experience with Mac Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red 

I completely fell in love with the shade even while I was trying the lipstick at the Mac cosmetic store. You can call it love at first swatch/ sight. It didn’t take me long to decide on buying the shade, all I had to do was pout and turn around with the lipstick on,take a nod of approval from my sister, Pema and head straight to the billing counter. 🙂 The shade is fresh and I usually love it as a day wear. It lifts up my face and matches hour. Like most retro matte lipstick, this shade too last up to 6-7 hours straight. Has very rich pigmentation and great color pay off.

Mac relentlessly red vs all fired up

For Those Who Feels The Shade looks like the shade All Fired Up: At first, even I was bit reluctant to buy this shade, because I already have All Fired Up and I didn’t want to end up buying a similar shade. So, I carefully looked over the display counter again of the M.A.C store, picked both the shades out to try it out on my wrist and lips.Well, even though at first glance both the lipsticks look like the same shade, but on lips they look entirely different!
