Packaging:
The outer cover is the basic black MAC cover that we can usually find. It is classy and has become a cult symbol in the makeup world. Usually, MAC lipsticks are encased in a black bullet. But not the retro matte liquid ones. These come in a transparent tube, which makes seeing the colour really easy.

Ingredients:

Product Claims:

  • Long-wearing, eight hours
  • Colour wears evenly and smoothly, eight hours
  • Provides stay-true colour, eight hours
  • Non-feathering, non-bleeding

It comes in 15 shades, and today, we will be reviewing the shade 'Fashion Legacy', which is a bright, orange toned red.


Product:
It is a liquid lipstick that goes on glossy, but then dries to a matte finish. It is highly pigmented and it is suggested for you to use just one swipe, else it may crease or flake away. People with dry lips may need to apply a lip balm before applying the lipstick, as it can feel a little bit too drying. It comes with a light and subtle vanilla fragrance.


Applicator:
It has a pointed applicator, as opposed to most brands that are using doe-foot applicators. This makes the application precise and even.

This is how the pointed tip of the applicator looks from the side.

This is how it looks from the front.

Shade:
The shade is a bright and vibrant orange toned red. It can lift up your entire face and make it look bright. We think it would suit people of all skin tones, whether fair, medium or dusky.

Lasting Power:
This lipstick can easily last for up to 8-9 hours, without any touch-ups. It even lasts after meals and is completely transfer-proof. You would need a really good makeup remover to remove it and avoid tugging at the lips, as it is quite difficult to remove.
Overall, it is a highly pigmented, long-lasting lip colour.
