Here’s what you should know. I am a beauty junkie, first and foremost. More specifically, I love makeup. And if I am being ONE HUNNIT, I cannot (more like will not) stop buying lipsticks. It’s a really good chance that I have all of these colors from another brand but yet when something is new I need to try it and I’d prefer to be the first.


In this instance, MAC Cosmetics has no idea that my blog exists so they don’t send me stuff. I know “cry me a river” right! Anyways at $20 a pop, I only decided to try one of the new Retro Matte Lipsticks from MAC. Because…$20 G!

Buy or Nah:

Totally buy! The finish is stellar. I only bought one so my review is only based on “Dance With Me”. Sometimes different colors will have different textures. But this one is a winner. It’s not too tacky or sticky and it goes on really smooth. I also LOVE the pointed tip applicator. This is great for precise application around the corners of your lips and your cupid’s bow. It also dries fairly quick but not too quick where you can’t erase any of your mistakes (without staining your face). I wore this all day and even after eating pork chops… I was still cute. It also doesn’t stain your lips like some red liquid lipstick. One swipe of my makeup wipe and it was gone.

So do me a favor and leave me a comment and share this post with your friends on Twitter.

Happy Shopping!

    I purchased Dance with me and Oh Lady, they last forever and they aren’t painful on my lips. They last all day without needing a touch up. Since these are permanent I plan to purchase a few more over time.

    Those darker lip shades look stunning and I do like the Velvet Rose lipgloss/lipstick… Not the biggest fan of the flower itself. I’m thinking about doing a blog post about different purples that look good on different complexions!!!!!
    Anyway… lovely post as always..
