I have always wanted to do a Mac feature brand lipstick reviews and this opportunity didn’t come in even better. I just got this Mac Retro Matte Lipstick (in Ruby Woo) as a mother’s day gift from my honey bear and I love this bold red that I just so thrilled to share my thoughts and opinion with you guys. Many of you may have read some of my beauty haul which I scratched the surface of the lipsticks I picked up for my haul. But this time, I’m going to show more pictures and color swatches in this post. So, grab yourself a bowl of popcorn as we’re about to roll:-
I don’t have a huge collection of Mac makeup line but I can feel that my stash is growing slowly but steadily (giggling). Here are the four Mac lipsticks which I have from this brand. Mac cosmetics is one of my favorite brand lipsticks and the shades are ridiculously amazing. I love the pigmentation and the creamy, velvety feel of this lip color on my lips.
Right here are Lady Danger, Saint Germain, Saint Nude and Ruby Woo my latest bullet in my collection. Yay! They net wt: 0.1 oz for each bullet. The packaging is simple with a high end bullet design.
Below, I’m going to demonstrate a “Perfect and Clean Lip Look” using Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo to create this look.
On my right, I started with a naked lips. I did not put lip concealer but it is really optional. If you like your lip color to stay longer and don’t budge. Once you have applied your lip concealer you can start by using your lip liner brush.
Start by drawing a line on your cupid bow. Make sure that they are balance in height. Once you have the shape of the cupid bow, do a weird smile and draw from the corner of your lips to join the centre of your lips. Do this for both corners. Then, fill your lips with your lipstick. We are only doing the top lip and let’s go ahead and do the bottom lip now.
Use the same lip brush, draw a smooth line along your lower lip like the picture shown. It’s pretty easy to do this look. Once you are done drawing, fill your bottom lip with your lipstick. In my case, I use Ruby Woo and then make a smack on both lips. And you’re done! I really love this perfect and clean red lips look ❤
All these lipsticks are super pigmented and the shades are so incredibly smooth and pretty. The Saint Nude is in a neutral nude tone while Saint Germain has a cool tone pink. I love the coral tone of Lady Danger and the bold red is simply my style.
Saint Nude and Saint Germain both have a shimmery finish while Lady Danger and Ruby Woo are more opaque and with matte velvety finish. These shades are all perfect to summer days with the exception of this solid red which is specially reserved for special occasion 🙂
I hope you like and enjoy reading this post. The demonstration is a throw in bonus since I was excited to share how a red lipstick can rock a beautiful lips.
Oh… I can’t end my blog without giving you guys a flying kiss. So, mwuah!
