My take on MAC Retro Matte Relentlessly Red Lipstick:

I got this shade along with ‘Flat out Fabulous’- (totally in love with). As name says- Relentlessly – This is implacable and unstoppable red 😀 … gorgeous eye catching colour anyone can fall in love with. I have been googling Retro Matte shades quite a long time before they launched in USA and to be frank the first colour catches my eyes is “Relentlessly Red” followed by “Flat Out Fabulous”. Six months back I never thought of getting  MAC products as they are way to costly for me… I do secretly envy my other friends and blogger’s MAC haul post and wished if I could buy few of them 🙂 I don’t buy stuffs randomly, I am very picky about my choice and at last when you are spending money its you who should be satisfied with your purchases P. Ahhh! Enough of gyans 😛 lets move on… well these two  colours is my mom’s favourite too…My mom carry flat out fabulous with more beautifully than me 😛 😀

The Colour – MAC describe it as “Bright Pinkish Coral Matte” with cool undertone. I feel it’s a bright colour mixed of Coral and Red with hint of Pink in it. I love coral lipsticks and matte textures, and this one is just perfect sit for both. Those who love coral and matte texture will definitely love it. It’s a pretty loud coral-red-pink shade which is not vampy but very wearable for those who like bold lips like me:P

The Texture is Matte, alike other matte Lippies from the collection. But definitely less matte than ‘ Ruby Woo’.  I tried this shade first time yesterday and very impressed with the matte texture, despite being matte your lips don’t dry up uncomfortably. Neither it flakes rudely. Stay put on me straight for 5 hours evenly without fading or flaking. It’s even survive meals too. Now that’s a brilliant formula MAC came up with Retro Collection. They are Strong , Bold and Loud colours with perfect undrying Matte texture stay put for long long time.. you might need to touchup after 5-6hours but just a little.

The Pigmentation is awesome. Highly pigmented, opaque finish, One swipe and you are done. Beautifully covers pigmented lips without showing your actual lip colour. I am honestly very impressed with my latest buy- “Flat Out Fabulous” and “Relentlessly Red”.

Note: Those who have dry lips like me and love Matte lipsticks, its very important you exfoliate and moisturize your lips over night. Next morning you will have smooth and even lips to apply lipsticks. Always use a clear lipbalm underneath before applying matte lipsticks. This is what I do :-).
