MAC’s Retro Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous

Hi All! My first makeup post since my wedding woohoo! I’m happy to get back into the swing of posting regularly! I went on a bit of a MAC binge last week, and discovered MAC’s Retro Matte line of lipsticks. 8 gorg shades, but the one on the model caught my eye. It’s the perfect fall shade, in my opinion. Often times, I reach for lipsticks and glosses that have a touch of sparkle or shine to them. This lipstick is your ticket into womanhood. It’s no joke and beautiful. Use a lip liner to really define your lips, then go in for the lipstick kill. I used a nude lip pencil, but MAC also has the matching lip pencil for each retro matte lipstick – your choice. The result is a pretty, pin-up pout. Another plus – matte lipsticks tend to last longer than other finishes. However be careful – they can be drying. My trick is to put on a really moisturizing lip balm first. I do the rest of my makeup and let the balm sink in, then carefully wipe it off with a cloth or tissue. I’ve found it cuts down on dryness and cracking throughout the day.

Thoughts? Please note that I used a flash in my photo - it looks slightly lighter than the lipstick on the model. It's the same shade! Thanks for reading, will be back again super soon to post my new favorite eye look for fall!! xoxo
