Matte reigns supreme! Our fan-favourite M·A·C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is back with new saturated shades of on-trend muted and deep tones. Whichever one you choose, all promise a big splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that lingers, virtually impossible to forget.” -MAC

I kindly received two samples of MAC Retro Matte Lipsticks and I absolutely love them. The formula is very lovely and light on the lips. Non drying. I love the colours but one suits me better then the other. The two colours that I kindly received are “Cafe au Chic” and “Dash o Spice”. The formula is very long lasting and very pigmented. The applicator is wonderful because it has a tip, which helps with outlining the lips. It is also soft and applies so nicely on the lips.



Dash O Spice has a yellow tone and doesn’t suit me very much. 

But I have found the perfect solution to this. I really want to use Dash O Spice and because I love the formula so much I’ve mixed it up with my  MAC Retro matte liquid lip colour in Fuchsia Flicker and It makes the prettiest rose pink ever!

I’m so in love with my new colour. Do you mix colours? If a product doesn’t suit me I usually find a way to use it. Especially if I love the formula. So this worked out perfect!

Next Colour is “Cafe au Chic” I absolutely love this and the swatch on my arm looks warm brown. But when I put this on my lips it is grey. I have no idea why. I think the pigment on my lips is a different then the arm? No sure.


So overall I love the formula. As for the colours I really love how the ‘Cafe Au Chic’ looks on me. I’m totally into grey colours lately and I don’t know why the colour changes on my lips. If you know please let me know. I think its because my lip colour is different then my arm skin tone. Please enlighten me if you know. But overall these are beautiful. I’m also glad I’m able to mix the colour ‘Dash o Spice’ with my ‘Fuchsia Flicker’ and now I can use up both products. Thanks so much to MAC for the samples. I hope you enjoyed my review. Thank you so much!

  1. The Cafe Au Chic and Rose pink suit you so well, in completely different ways. The Rose pink, however, genius! I’ll keep this neat trick in mind now ❤ Great reviews, Maria.
