Hi Guys, today i will be doing a review of some lipsticks i got recently and shared a picture of on instagram. I finally got my hands on these retro matte lipsticks and have been wearing them for a while and we all know MAC does not dissapoint with their lipsticks at all.. I like every single color. They are absolutely beautiful... I purchased five out of the seven that where released. I skipped out on ALL FIRED UP and RUNWAY HIT because i felt they were colors i would really wear much..

Upon hearing these were inspired my Ruby woo, i was a little concerned because i do not like the formula of that AT ALL!!! It is very dry and a drag to apply.. LITERALY.. LOL. After reading reviews on these i found out they are less drying so i eventually gave in...

What MAC Says: Inspired by Ruby Woo's overwhelming popularity and one-of-a-kind texture, M•A•C introduces new bold shades in its Retro Matte finish. Eye-catching colours like Dangerous and All Fired Up create a look that's fiercely feminine.



RELENTLESSLY RED is described as a “bright pinkish coral matte.” As much as i like red lipsticks i am honestly not the biggest fan of them.I do not understand people's obsession with RUBY WOO. I hardly ever reach for them but this is a color i really like. It leans a little towards coral and brightens up the face. This looks like Dangerous at first glance but when swatched they look absolutely different.


STEADY GOING is described as a "light pink matte". I have so many light pink lipsticks but i cant stop buying them. Honestly, when it comes to pinks they almost always show up the same on the lips. This color is really no different from snob, or pink plaid even though it is really pretty. I love my pinks so i had to get this.

DANGEROUS is described as a “orangey red matte.” This color is very similar to lady danger and i would suggest you skip this if you already have that unless you just have to buy it or you want it for its retro matte finish or you are a collector/hoarder like me. LOL. It is also very similar to SCARLET IBIS from the Marilyn Monroe collection.


FLAT OUT FABULOUS is described as a “bright plum matte.” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia-plum with a flat, matte finish. This color is so pretty and i like to wear it with my currant lipliner. It gives a nice gradient effect. It is comparable to Girl about town but the finish changes it a little bit.

FIXED ON DRAMA is described as a “rich wine matte.” It’s a dark, burgundy red with neutral undertones . The darkest color i have ever had is REBEL which i really like. I had been comtemplating buying smoked purple and cyber for the longest time but the colors were a little too dark fo me. I tried to get my paws on TALK THAT TALK but rihanna fans wont let up so i got this. It is a very intense wine color. The most popular color of this collection. I absolutely love it.

L-R Relentlessly Red, Steady going, Dangerous, Flat out Fabulous, Fixed on drama

So unto the three P's

PRODUCT: The formula's of these are Retromatte. Honestly i dont know the difference between the regular mattes and these. These are not as drying like Ruby woo which i really like though. They do settle into the lips a little and i advise you moisturize your lips and get rid of dead skin or your lips will look crazy. They are very pigmented and long lasting. Formula is A+

PACKAGING: Regular mac bullet shaped packaging with the name and formula type written under. Nothing special...Moving on.....

PRICE: I purchased two out of the five from the MAC STORE at Lekki for N3800. I believe they are all available... Head over there before it sells out ladies...

Hope you enjoyed this review!!
Thanks for Stopping by!!
