MAC Satin Lipstick Retro Review, Swatch, LOTD

by Preetha on August 3, 2012

 This review was pending for a long time and I truly apologize for the delay. Most of you would be knowing that I have been really busy for the past one month. So here I am finally with the most awaited lipstick review on Indian Beauty Journal. This shade is called Retro.
 
The shade name “Retro” might be confusing for some as a red or a hot pink but this is a lovely subtle brownish pink shade.


I have been raving about this lipstick to all my lovely friends. This is one of my favourite shades from MAC. It is my perfect MLBB ( My Lips But Better) shade and I use it for daily wear. I also carry this particular shade with me for my frequent travels as it goes well with all outfits.

It is of Satin Finish. The lipsticks of this finish offer excellent pigmentation in one swipe. They have a nice soft texture. They do not make the lips dry or settle in fine lines.
Packaging:
The standard classy black MAC packaging. Very travel friendly.
Price:
Rs.990 for 3 grams

It is a brown with a hint of pink in it. It looks lovely on all skin tones. However I feel it is the best everyday lipstick for warm skinned beauties like me. Those who are above NC40 in MAC should definitely check this out.

I love the way it makes me look subtle and subdued. It is my go to lipstick for anyday. It stays for a good 6 hours on my lips. I love the vanilla scent of it alot. It is my most used lipstick till date and you can clearly see that from the pictures.

Pros:
1.Excellent pigmentation
2.Amazing staying power
3.Sturdy packaging
4.Lovely vanilla fragrance

Cons:
Expensive. I would still buy it just for the shade and quality.

My Rating: 4.5/5
Final words:
If you are looking for a subtle brownish pink that can be worn anyday, do check this shade out. It suits all skin tones very well and would be perfect for dusky beauties.

So how did you all like this shade?
