Hello my beautiful ladies- how are you all?

Today I am going to review one of my most used lipsticks in summer – MAC Satin lipstick RETRO. Its not from Retro matte collection, it’s from their Satin range. Many of use often misunderstand the name.

Price:  1190 INR OR $16 USD.

Quantity: 3gm OR 0.1 US oz

My Experience with Mac Satin Lipstick Retro 

MAC describes “MAC Satin Lipstick RETRO ” as muted peachy-pink brown with satin finish. I absolutely agree with that. On me it looks medium-dark pinkish brown with peachy undertone. Formula is completely opaque in just 1 or 2 swipes. Wonderfully hides any pigmentation on lips. Retro is the shade mostly used by me and my mom as well. She loves it on her too 🙂 . This is more mature kind of shades which may or may not be liked by all. This shade is my Mom’s staple and  she uses it the most. I need to pair it up with matching dress in order to balance my look 😛


retro7MAC Retro has an earthiness to the shade which makes a perfect MLBB shade for some deep skin i.e. those who are NC45 and higher. Staying power is more than 5-6 hours with or without any meal. The reason I mentioned both because it can survive heavy meals as well. Perfect shade for daily wear. Satin finish makes it long lasting and non fading. It doesn’t smudge from sides neither I saw any budging. Although I always prefer touch –ups after each meals. The formula keeps my lips moisturized and non drying. Satin is a formula I always loved for its smooth and soft finish. Glides on lips like a dream giving and opaque and long lasting finish. It’s neither dry not creamy!!
