MAC Retro-matte Lipstick 'Relentlessly Red' - Review

by - March 20, 2017



I am very lazy these days...  I have taken the pictures of this lipstick long back and it was lying in the draft section since 5-6 months now... Well, this one is the first MAC lipstick review on blog ,I am so excited...  I had bought this one year ago and have already applied so many times and love the shade so much...


Relentlessly Red is from the Retro-matte range of MAC and now it is in the permanent range, hence you can buy easily from any MAC store and voila, now Mac  is available at nykaa too...


According to the brand Relentlessly Red is a pink based coral shade but I think it is a pink-ish red shade and trust me the colour looks different in different light... Sometimes it looks more red, sometimes more towards pink and so on...  But I truly enjoy this shade each time... It is super pigmented  only one swipe is enough to bring the exact shade...



The texture is very drying as it is a matte lipstick and it is obvious...  If you have very dry lips, then these Retro-matte range is not for you but if you are a crazy bun like me, then it is very necessary to prep the lips before hand...  I have very dry and chaffed lips, no matter how much lip balm I apply on lips.. So I normally scrub my lips before the lipstick...  I sometime rub my tooth brush on my lips just to remove the dead skin cells and after that I apply my lip balm and wait for 15-20 minutes...  Then wipe out the lip balm and dab again a little lip balm on my lips and then the matte lipstick over it...  In this way I safe my lips from immediate cracking...  You can follow this step as well...



The lipstick relentlessly red stays for a whole day even with meals...  Actually it leaves heavy stains on lips after fading which is again looks good...  The shade is such a pretty one, it enhances my skin tone..


The bullet is the typical black Mac bullet which looks so classy...  It has strong vanilla fragrance..  Initially I was a little hesitation to buy such expensive lipstick, but after getting this, I am so happy...  Will recommend this to all...
