Birchbox Breakdown

Precision is key when it comes to applying bold color, so we appreciate all the help we can get. Thankfully this liquid take on M·A·C Cosmetics' Retro Matte Lipstick is packaged in a lip gloss-like tube. Its handy wand makes it easy to apply the creamy formula smoothly and evenly because once it dries to a liquid suede finish, it stays put for up to eight hours. Whether you choose to wear the luscious matte colors alone or layer with one another, they pair seamlessly with a variety of skin tones and makeup looks. So many shades to try, so little time.

How to Use

Apply directly to lips using the wand applicator.

Great matte liquid lip color!

I'm pleased with this product. It reminds me a whole lot of the sephora liquid matte lip colors. It dries down so nicely you will probably forget it's there. Even after touch ups I don't notice any stickiness or flaking at all like you get with a lot of products like this. As far as eating while wearing: I ate a big saucy subway sandwich and only had to do minimal touch ups where the oils in the sauce lifted the color a little towards the center of my lips. It didn't run or taste bad so I would say this is a good "dinner" worthy lip product. I also love that I can kiss my partner without any residue being left on his white mustache. Over all I give this product a 10 and would say it lives up to Nars legendary reputation for quality. I will be buying more shades and suggesting this to friends.

Wow love this

Finally got to try the Mac Liquid Lipsticks- I bought the first 4 colors. Epic staying power, OMG. I do use a lip balm (tokyo dark or Dr Lipp) under it though to keep it from feeling dry. I cant believe lipstick could ever last this long!! I also tried a few other brands and this one lasts the longest and has the smoothest formula and best applicator tip- beautiful colors too!

Incredibly Drying

The color selection is cool, but the formula is very drying. I have found this to be the case with many of MAC's matte solid or liquid lipsticks. I wish I could wear this one because I love the color but the coral shade in particular made my lips peel even with primer.

Longest lasting lipstick EVER!

I have purchased this from M.A.C. before (in a bright purple called Heroin) and I love it! I am very excited to try High Drama! This lipstick is the most pigmented longest lasting lipstick ever. It is a matte finish though so don't expect it to feel moisturizing. You could use their primer, but I usually just apply my regular chap stick before I put it on and then reapply the chap stick over it through the day when they feel dry. It doesn't seem to affect the staying power but keeps my lips from feeling dry.

Amazing! Some problems...

If you have chapped lips then this brings out the dry skin on them. Other than that it's easy apply and a beautiful color!
