MAC collaborated with three makeup artists – Diane Kendal, James Kaliardos, and Kabuki to create colour collections reflecting each artist’s signature style. MAC Kabuki Magic Spring/Summer 2017 is now available in India and from the collection, I have two retro matte lip colours to show you. Presenting Fallen Angel, a deep berry and Flamingo Road, a purple magenta. They are priced at Rs 1850 each and available in stores and on Nykaa.
I love the MAC Retro Matte liquid lipcolour formula in general. Some of them can apply a bit patchy but mostly, pigmentation is brilliant and you get full coverage in just a single swipe. They have a lightweight, mousse like texture and apply smoothly and evenly. Yes, the formula is slightly drying but again, that’s the case with almost all matte liquid lipsticks.
This is a beautiful deep, dark shade and is very similar to ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Notion. This shade unfortunately goes on slightly patchy so you need to swipe a couple of times to get even coverage.
I love Flamingo Road! It is a beautiful deep purple with a hint of pink and looks stunning on the Indian skin tone. It has excellent pigmentation, applies evenly and lasts for nearly 6-7 hours. A close dupe will be ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Zipper.
