This is the daring choice, I really don't know what came over me! I am usually such a plain Jane, but there was something about this shade I quite liked. I just love the tone of the red, it has a warm under tone and I tend to be drawn to that colour family more so than cool tones.
It is my first experience with a Matte finish in a lipstick as well, then application felt quite funny the first time I applied it to my lips. I have tried this applied lightly, even rubbed into my lips, that looks really nice. I have also worn this as you would a normal lipstick, my hubbies eyes nearly popped out, he wondered what had come over me!! But do you know what?? I really liked it, I could not stop looking in the mirror. This lipstick is super pigmented as well, it literally lasted hours.
This is a total Jen colour, as soon as I laid my eyes on this I knew it would be coming home with me, its simply beautiful. A perfect nude pink, it looks amazing on my lips, and feels good too. I would say this feels drier on my lips than Dangerous if I had to compare them. I have heard this shade is a limited edition and has sold out in some Mac stores, I think I will end up kicking myself for not getting a back up of this one.
The picture looks quite dark here, I don't think it transpires like that on my lips, its more a nude shade. I would say it is a shade that would work well with a variety of make up looks as well.
Did you pick any of the Retro Matte lippies up? I did see a nice purple shade that would look amazing on a brunette. I would love to hear your thoughts on this new collection. Thanks for reading, hope to see you soon.
