Review ♥ MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color (Carnivorous)

     According to MAC, their Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color provides a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that lingers. This is for those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. M∙A∙C introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.

     MAC also claims that this product is long wearing and can last up to 8 hours.The colour wears evenly and smoothly, and provides stay-true colour. It is non-feathering and non-bleeding.

     The applicator works really great. The shape of it was really designed to make your lips defined. It has a non-bendable stem which makes applying easier. It was very easy to use and apply. I didn't have mistakes while applying. 

     MAC describes this shade as blackened red and I think that's really the perfect description for this. 

     The texture is very creamy. I didn't have to do a double swipe to get full coverage. It also dries really fast.

○ The pigmentation is excellent. In just one swipe on my lips, I got a full coverage. I even don't have to put another layer because it is already even. 
○ It is smudge-proof and transfer-proof.
○ The scent smells delicious but it doesn't have a weird taste. It reminds me of icing on a cake.
○ This shade will look good on any skin tones.
○ It was easy to remove. I used a remover and it went off right away. It also didn't leave a stain on my lips.
○ It is not tacky and sticky. It is very comfortable to wear.

○ It wears off when it I ate oily foods, it came off and became really sticky which annoyed me, so I wiped everything off and reapply afterwards. The 8 hour and long-wearing thing that they claim may only be applied when you are not planning to eat oily foods.
○ It is very drying on my lips. It is necessary to put on lip moisturizer first before applying this.
