MAC Satin Lipstick Retro – Review, Swatch and LOTD


I love MAC lipsticks and Satin finish is my most favorite. I visited the store to buy Brick –O-La but I walked out carrying Retro, proudly. I tried Brick-O-la first and didn’t find anything special about it. But once I applied Retro on my lips and took a look, I knew that it was just for me!

Packaging:

It comes in the usual MAC packaging i.e., black and silver holder. The shade name and finish are written on the bottom of the lipstick holder. It looks really classy and not even once I have noticed MAC lipstick holders opening and causing a mess inside my makeup bag.

Price: Rs. 1450 for 3g. Yes MAC again increased the price L.Shelf life is 3 years.

What I have to say about MAC lipstick Retro:

MAC says about Retro as ‘Muted peachy pinky brown’. But I feel that it is more of a reddish brown. In the photos in comes up with a pink undertone though. It is both creamy and pigmented. Retro gives an opaque finish in a single swipe and camouflages any pigmentation on the lips very easily. It doesn't dry the lips or settle into fine lines.

However, it is better to apply a lip balm before applying it since it doesn't particularly moisturize dry lips. The staying power is pretty good. It stays on my lips for around 5 hours without any meals in between. It survives small snacks or drinks in between but fades a little. I love this lipstick because of the versatility. It goes well with both neutral and formal looks as well as dramatic looks. It gives a sophisticated look for my face. I can say that this is my most favorite of all the MAC lipsticks I have. It smells like Vanilla like any other MAC lipstick.
