MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick : Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m swatching all 22 shades of the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks for you. These liquid lipsticks are well pigmented, dry down quickly and are completely transfer-proof. These do feel very drying though so a lip primer is recommended to make the formula more forgiving on the lips.

Hope you find the swatches helpful!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna : First Impressions

 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

 

Hi everyone! Rihanna launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, a few weeks back and the beauty world can’t stop talking about it! The first batch of products were mostly complexion/face products along with a universal shade of lip gloss. I picked up a few of the products to try out (couldn’t resist all the buzz!). I placed my order directly on the e and used a mail forwarding service () to get the products delivered from US to India.

I picked up the foundation in shade 270. Since its a fairly new brand, swatches of all the foundation shades together weren’t easy to come by so I had to make an educated guess to choose my shade. I also picked up the primer, the lip gloss and a highlighter duo. I haven’t tested the products properly yet but I wanted to share my first impressions of the products with you.

This comes in a universal rose-y beige shade with ultra fine shimmer and incredible shine. I do love a glossy lip and this nude shade gives a lovely juicy shine to the lips. Its not too opaque so I like using a mauve pink or deep rose lip stain underneath this to add some color. The texture is very comfortable; non-sticky and super hydrating. I was on the fence about how unique this would be (it’s a nude lip gloss after all), but there is something about it that makes me reach for it over and over. I think its the feel of the formula – it doesn’t sit in a thick, gloopy layer on the lips and instantly hydrates and softens the lips. I can see myself using this for a long time. I like the look of the packaging as well!
