All Fired Up; MAC Lipstick Review With Swatches


All Fired Up


If you know me at all, you know I am a huge fan of mac make-up, there is always at least 2-10 things on my wishlist. I can go into a mac store/to a mac counter look at a lipstick and 7/10 of the time I know the shade before I check the back. Best formulas ever - oh and they smell gorgeous.

Let's cut to the chase - my newest purchase is 'All Fired Up', my boyfriend kindly offered to spontaneously buy me a mac lipstick of my choice which is just adorbs, and I wanted something a bit bright and fancy.

The finish of this lipstick is Retro Matte, which was actually a limited edition finish a while back but they've begun to make it permanent I believe. The retro matte formulas also feel that bit smoother on the lips compared to the original matte formulas which I like.

I swatched the lipstick on the back of my hand (bottom one soft swipe, top the normal amount) it is a very pinky red shade, and I think this would gorgeous with some winged liner and golden skin for a modern take on the pin-up look.


I can imagine this to be a staple in my make-up for the rest of what we have of summer in England!


What do you think of the retro matte finishes?

Have a lovely day,

Shivon xoxo
