Are you ready for 14 Days of Ravishing Red? Stay tuned as we explore ravishing red 💄 lipsticks, lip liners and glosses every day on our way to 💕 Valentine’s.
Ya know…some days you just feel like a fire engine 🚒 red on your lips. A blazingly bold, no-questions-asked red that doesn’t pussyfoot around — a red that isn’t a beige red, or a pinkish red. It isn’t a coral or brown. It’s just really, really, really red.
MAC Fashion Legacy Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21, and one of 28 shades) is that kind of red.
The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours have a mousse-y consistency, and they’re thicker than many other liquid lipsticks. They’re also great for long work days, after-work parties, weddings, proms and other big events because you won’t have to retouch them every 15 minutes. Basically, they last long (it’s one of the perks of a liquid lipstick), and you can apply them without a lip pencil.
Fashion Legacy is one of my “going out” reds because it’s bright and opaque and festive and 🎉🥂🎈 fun. And it goes well with anything, ESPECIALLY black winged liner and long lashes (including falsies, if you can put them on without poking your eye out…WHICH I ALMOST DID ONCE, OMG!).
By the way, if you’re in the mood for something disco, it also looks fabulous under a coat of shiny, clear gloss.
