I’ve been trying to take my own advice and break free from my usual color comfort zone, and $22 matte gray-plum MAC Retro Matte in So Me adeptly qualifies. It’s waaaaay outta my usual wheelhouse. It may be called “So Me,” but I call it “So Not Me.” 🙂 Ha ha ha!
Back in high school algebra class, I sat next to a very sweet girl who I realize now as I look back… I’m pretty sure she was high up the totem pole in a neighborhood gang with a rough reputation.
I didn’t think about it at the time… I just knew her as the nice girl in my math class.
Anyway, I do have a point here, and it’s that she wore a lipstick in this exact same color, and it looked beautiful on her. So Me has a very ’90s tough-but-sweet vibe, so if you’re looking for a retro early ’90s lippie, this is it.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the MAC liquid lipsticks are so, so good. They’re one of very few formulas out there that my eternally dry lips can handle, and you can pop one on in the morning and not think about it for the rest of your day, which is what I did when I wore this to work. I applied it just before going into a five-our shift, and when I picked up Connor at preschool that afternoon, she said, “Are you wearing lipstick? IS IT BROWN?” LOL. In a nutshell, this stuff lasts!
