Mac Satin Lipstick Retro- Perfect for Indian Skin

I tend to buy Lipstick colours that are brighter shades so I wanted to pick a warm deeper shade for my next purchase. I decided to try the shade Retro from the Mac Satin Lipstick range.


I picked this colour because I wanted a peachy brown shade and this lipstick fit what I was looking for perfectly. The warmth of the shade made my lips stand out and complimented my skin tone as it made my skin look brighter instead of making me look washed out as some dark lipsticks do.


It is a really pigmented lipstick so I only needed to apply over my lips once, but it did tend to fade after about 4 hours and then needs reapplication if you eat or drink while wearing it.

My lips felt a little dry so I prefer wearing lip balm underneath, therefore I personally did not find the quality of this lipstick to be that great. However, I adore the shade and this colour is really hard to find so for that reason alone I would purchase this lipstick again.

I was in New York when I bought this so I purchased it at a MAC counter at Macy’s for $17. It is available online in the UK for Β£15.50 at MAC.
