MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Relentlessly Red Review and Swatches

Being a sucker for Matte finish lipsticks,I have already loved and loved MAC Ruby Woo,Mac Dangerous,MAC Mehr and on and on.Now,when I got a chance to lay my hands on the ever so gorgeous shade-Relentlessly Red,I had no reasons to say no to get this.The shade,the finish is insanely awesome.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE:rs.990 for 1gm.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING:The packaging is similar to MAC permanent line lipsticks having black matte outer casing with shade name and finish provided at the bottom.The packaging is definitely sturdy and travel friendly but I certainly expected some ‘Retro’ packaging for it!!!

SHADE:Relentlessly Red is described as a bright pinkish coral matte.For me,it is a bright reddish pink with slightest hint of coral which provides a carrot-y tint to the lipstick.

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The lipstick has a soft texture.It is matte but glides on easily and applies well.The shade is quite bold so you have to be careful that it is in perfect shape as the lips.It feels comfortable on lips but after say 1-2 hours,lips do get a bit dry.

???????????????????????????????

It does settle in the lip lines and being a matte finish lipstick,it can accentuate dry flaky lips so exfoliating is very necessary.The shade stays for about 6-7 hours.It is highly pigmented and leaves a strong reddish pink tint behind.

???????????????????????????????

RATING:4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: I highly recommend checking out this shade.It is bright,fun and very poppy.Relentlessly red is a gorgeous red with not much red in it. :p . It provides the same glow to the complexion like a hot red lipstick does but this shade surely adds a lot of oomph.
