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.
