Mirielle. A. C. Retro Matte Lipstick Is Trending Upon Pinterest for Winter
Matte lipstick has been having an instant in makeup for most of 2016. With brands such as Kylie Cosmetics and Colourpop known for their formulas that will stay put , it can be hard to choose just one. Fortunately, Pinterest is making the decision much easier: M. A. C. Retro Matte Water Lipstick in High Drama is trending with more than 12, 000 repins.
Despite Pinterest’s winter trend report , I have to confess: I tend to favor creamy formulas more than matte. You might say I haven’t found the right lipstick in order to convert me yet. So far, they’ve all either already been too drying or not the right color for my complexion. So when I came across M. The. C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick within High Drama, I knew I had to try it. Pinterest wouldn’t let me down, right?
At first glance, I seriously thought this lipstick was about to become my new first choice. It’s ultra-dark which pretty much matches the mood of a New Yorker when the Polar Vortex certainly sets in. With any matte lipstick, the application form is so important to keep your lips moisturized. I started off by making use of chapstick and then nude lipliner over my entire lip area before reaching for the Meters. A. C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick . The particular formula is extremely pigmented, but it took a few coats in order to spread the deep wine color evenly over the lips. The first thing I noticed is that the color shows up more purplish on lips than it does in the tube. It required a few minutes to dry, during which I had to resist the to move my mouth too much. But after that it really do stay put without feeling too tight on our lips.

Also Shay Mitchell is a fan of this M. A. C. favorite. The girl recently posted an Instagram wearing High Drama , proving that the dark tone can be paired with dramatic eye makeup too.
Makeup artist Terry Barber, who have used this lipstick in Marco De Vincenzo’s springtime 2017 show, gave us the scoop on what causes this product stand out: “I like the way you put it upon as a liquid, but when it dries it suddenly spiffs up and mattifies so intensely that if you do a shiny skin against it, the contrast of that— the particular dewy skin and the matte lip— is just something actually beautiful. “It’ s just a bit more powerful than your typical lipstick. ”
If you’re looking for a bold, all eyes-on-you lipstick High Dilemma should definitely be in the running. Two co-workers complimented our lipstick from all the way across the office and a random unfamiliar person kept staring down at my lips on the subway trip home. But while the M. A. C. lipstick lasted for longer than the usual glossier formula, I noticed that it started to come off in strange sections. The color chipped away little by little— the reminder that a dark lip like this one takes commitment regardless of what type of formula you’re wearing.
