So, starting with the Mac Relentlessly Red, it is a bright pinkish coral matte. 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 most of their Retro Matte lipstick collection, this lipstick shade glided effortlessly smooth and didn’t dry out the lips like most retro matte lipsticks do. The shade is fresh and I usually love to wear during the day. It lifts up my face and the matches hour. At the same time, I feel it’s not a unique shade, meaning, you can find a similar shade in different affordable brands.

Talking about the lasting power of the lipstick, like most retro matte lipstick, this shade too last up to 6-7 hours straight. Has very rich pigmentation and great color pay off. So let me show you guys give you a quick wrist swatch and also how it looks on the lips.

Moving on to it’s comparison with all fired up…

Mac relentlessly red vs all fired up

At first glance, both the lipstick shades look very similar. It’s only when you swatch it on your lips that you see the real difference. I was about to skip trying Mac relentlessly red as it looked more or less like Mac All fired up on the display counter at Mac store. Since I already had Mac all fired up in my collection I was looking for something different. It was only when the makeup artist at the store insisted that I should actually try it on that I decided to have a swatch. When I had the first swatch of Mac relentlessly red on my lips I was like “I love this, this is such a fun shade!”So, what was the difference between the two lipstick shades? Mac relentlessly red is a bright pink coral shade, while  Mac all fired up a bright fuschia matte. The later is much darker than the first because of its purple undertone. Mac relentless red looks cool for the day look, while Mac all fired up looks great for the night outs. 🙂
