The title of this post totally gave it away, didn't it? I haven't talked about MAC for a while. I checked my archives and it's been almost two years since my last blog post about MAC Cosmetics. But hey, don't get me wrong. I didn't stop using MAC, I just focused on other brands to be featured here.
In this case though, I use these retro matte lipsticks frequently that I keep on forgetting to blog about them. Plus, they were in my makeup kit that I thought I lost for a while. Out of sight, out of mind. Even with makeup, apparently.
Retro Matte lipsticks in Runway Hit and Fixed on Drama
Trust me when I tell you that these are my most beaten up MAC lipsticks
Then I realised that my MAC Angel looks worse than those two tubes above. But Angel is part of the permanent line while those two above are limited edition (LE) and as much as possible I don't want my LE lipsticks looking like crap. I read somewhere that a few retro matte lipsticks were made permanent and Runway Hit was supposedly one of them. I visited MAC counters last year and told me otherwise though. This is what I have about MAC Collections - most of them are LE. This collection was one of their most successful collections launched in 2013. Bestsellers were Flat Out Fabulous and Fixed on Drama!
Runway Hit is described as "light nude matte" although it looks a bit peachy pink to me. Peachy pink matte, I should say. Fixed On Drama is described as "rich wine matte" and yes it was described just the way the colour is! I love how vampy it is on my lips!
It's not nude but I like this as much as my nude lipsticks.
Oh, why, hello there, Stranger.
Runway Hit has been my wear and tear lipstick. I apply it carelessly on my lips because the colour spreads evenly anyway then toss it right in the bag after. I feel that it tugs when I apply it (which almost always happens to matte lipsticks). It defines my lip lines but it's okay.
These retro matte lipsticks are very drying. Fixed on Drama is quite difficult to apply on my lips as I don't always achieve an even application. When I have all the time in the world, I use a lip brush to line my lips using this then layer the colour for an even vampy lips. Watch out for your lips after eating as it will leave uneven streaks on your lips. Regardless, I love this primarily because of the shade.
Other retro matte lipsticks I've tried were Riri Woo, Heaux, and Riri Boy. I hope will make more shades of retro matte permanent so I can hoard and try other colours!
