I know all you MVLers love red lipstick, judging by the popularity of my post “My Favorite Red Lipsticks” back in December. Because of that, I thought you readers might like to know about a great new red lipstick that I came across the other day, MAC’s “All Fired Up”. This is one of their Retro Matte lipsticks which is great because if you’re trying to create a true vintage look, matte is the way to go. Like any matte lipstick it does run dry, but wearing it with the MAC Prep & Prime for Lips has kept it feeling comfortable on my lips and also greatly increased the longevity. (I tend to lick and bite my lips a lot so lipstick usually disappears quickly on me, and I know I’ve had a lot of clients tell me they have the same issue.) The color is fairly true to what you see in the picture here- a super bright, intense pinky-red that is quite blue based. Fair-skinned ladies like myself would most likely look great in it, but I can imagine it looking great on darker skins as well.
There are seven colors in the Retro Matte line which are all permanent colors in the collection, so if “All Fired Up” isn’t for you but you’re still craving a matte lip there are other options!
My apologies for the selfie, it know it doesn’t hold up against all the lovely photography in the other posts!
