MAC lipstick review & swatches: Pink Plaid, Relentlessly Red & Creme d'Nude (matte, retro matte & cremesheen)


MAC lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks out there. They are pretty pricey, but their quality, selection of colors and finishes is amazing.Today I want to show you 3 MAC lipstick that I own: Pink Plaid, Relentlessly Red and Creme d'Nude.

Pink Plaid

MAC Matte Lipstick in Pink Plaid

Pink Plaid is a matte finish lipstick and lasts very well on the lips. The formula is not drying at all. Very girly shade that looks equally beautiful on blondes as on brunettes - you can literally pair this with any makeup look. I think this might be my favorite everyday pink lipstick, even though I usually prefer beigy/browny nudes.

Relentlessly Red

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Relentlessly Red

What an amazing color! It's a super neon bright pinky red and looks super intense against my fair skin. I have seen people pair it with MAC Cherry Lipliner and that looked super gorgeous as well, giving it a more reddish tone. The retro matte finish is one of my favorite finishes for MAC lipsticks because it stays put forever and doesn't budge. It is slightly more drying than the regular matte finish, however in the age of matte liquid lipsticks, this does not feel very drying to me.

Creme d'Nude

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme d'Nude

Creme d'Nude is a cremesheen finish lipstick and as you can see, it's a pretty light beigy peachy nude. It's very comfortable on the lips, but doesn't last as long as the more matte finishes. This looks gorgeous with a smokey eye! I don't reach for it very often I must admit since I am not that into the light lip look (anymore), but it is still a beautiful color.
