Good day beauties!
I obtained MAC Private Assertion Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick (unboxing video) proper earlier than Christmas, as a gift from me to myself together with a bunch of different high-end merchandise that I’m going to assessment shortly. I’m not often enthusiastic about matte finishes however I used to be about this beautiful shade. In my video you possibly can see me sporting this shade and since then I obtained to put on this new matte liquid lipstick a couple of instances extra and my first impression modified a little bit bit in order that’s why I made a decision to inform you my full expertise on this assessment.
U.S. Launch Date – Now @maccosmetics.com, Nordstrom, Macy’s
Worldwide Launch Date – January 2016
MAC Private Assertion Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00/ €25.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is formally described as a “surprising pink.” It’s a part of the newly launched MAC Retro Matte Spring 2016 Assortment (information, photographs) which options 15 shades.
I see it as a scorching fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a matte end. Once I took the photographs and swatches bellow the colour wasn’t utterly dry on my lips (I apologize for that and I’ll replace new photographs) so you possibly can see it has a barely sheen proper after the applying however in about one minute it dries all the way down to a very matte end.
It’s richly pigmented, delivering an opaque shade protection with a clean matte end. I completely love the colour (is a brilliant pink, how can I not) however I don’t actually like the applying as I may discover a few streaks everytime, as soon as the colour dried down. It made my lips look dry proper from the start, it emphasizes my lip traces and although I attempted making use of a lip balm earlier than it nonetheless appeared a bit streaky.
That is simply the factor that I don’t like about matte method lip colours, that they will actually make your lips seem dehydrated.
The method is liquid cream, extra like a mousse, so shouldn’t be runny in your lips and glides simply, delivering an intense shade. I get some switch each time I drink one thing so I can see a light-weight stain on the glass, whereas after I’ve a meal a few of the shade remains to be there.
The primary time I’ve utilized MAC Private Assertion Matte Liquid Lipstick, I’ve made the error of touching my lips in opposition to one another a few instances so the colour began to crumble and flake off in chunks a couple of minutes later. So, don’t contact your lips till the method is totally dry and it’s higher to not smile as effectively. The method is calmly vanilla-scented however tasteless to me.
After three hours put on I began to really feel my lips so dry so I couldn’t resist greater than four hours with this shade on my lips. I nonetheless had an honest quantity of shade left at the moment, however I didn’t need to dehydrate my lips only for the sake of reviewing this shade.
Right here is winter, we have now snow so it’s fairly chilly outdoors and retaining a matte liquid lipstick in your lips for greater than you could have too, may actually end in critical chapped lips. After I remover the colour I utilized a critical layer of probably the most moisturizing lip balm I had, as I truthfully didn’t skilled thus far a extra dryer method.
This shade jogs my memory of Illamasqua Forbidden Matte Lip Liquid (assessment, swatches) I used to put on in the summertime about two years in the past.
