Not quite sure if I got the good lipstick here.I bought the Mac lipstick with a satin finish in the colour Retro.It didn't look impressive in the tube but applied on my lips it is a perfect fall/winter colour a lovely muted Brown/pink. On my it looks a bit terracotta without any hint of Orange.I'm quite pale with freckles. (Alabaster in Clinique foundation, haven't tried a Mac one)The finish is very long holding and even better Then my matte Russian Red from Mac. The lipstick can tug if you got dry lips. So I apply Mac's prep and prime for lips.

This is such a beautiful red, but not 'IN YOUR FACE' red..It is for the days you want to wear a red lip, without being too bold. It is also ideal for those who find red lipstick too intimidating.It looks good when you wear it as a lipstick or blot it and wear it as a stain.It's not a very unique or outsanding shade, which makes it perfect for everyday or for the office.I am NC25 and on me it looks brownish red or reddish brown with a hint of orange.It feels matte but has a slight sheen.It does last for a while, but you probably need a lip liner because it feathers a bit.I wanted it for quite a while and I finally bought it and use it often but if i run out of it, i dont think i will buy it again because it is an easily dupable shade.

Retro is a really unique color and a beautiful, versatile neutral for medium to tan skintones. I'm around an NC35-40 with pigmented reddish pink lips, and on me, Retro is a reddish, peachy terracotta brown with a hint of plum. It's a really interesting color because the mix of red and brown make Retro both bold and neutral. It's slightly deeper than my natural lip color so it gives great definition, and the mix of colors in the lipstick make it easy to pair with any kind of makeup. It has a slightly glossy finish that smoothes over dryness and fine lines, and it's slightly moisturizing. Longevity is also good (3-4 hours untouched), and it'll last through drinks but not a meal. I know on warm toned tan skinned ladies like myself, Retro is an easy-to-wear neutral, and I can see it being a lovely nude on deeper skintones or a beautiful subdued bright on lighter skintones. According to the reviews, Retro can be quite the chameleon depending on your complexion, so definitely give this one a try if you can before buying.

I absolutely love this lipstick. I am a big lover of reds and think they suit me the most but wanted to go a little different from my usual. I do not regret this, it goes on lovely and has a bit of a matte look. The only issue I would say is that it doesn't last forever, but nevertheless is still one of my favourites. It has browny undertones and has a really natural look if you just put a tiny bit on, or you can build it up.

@ella who are you to say a color is too dark for a nude? nudes arent meant to look like concealer like mac myth. Deep terracotta shades look wonderful. Especially contrasted with light skin complexions!its drying because you dont apply it on chapped lips! Moisturize your lips first after you exfoliate them! I dunno why girls think they can complain about a lipstick being drying when they have crusty crusts on their lips.This is a lovely color.Flls into the Twig,Spice is Nice,Brick o La category. This color will give your lips the va va voom..plump sexy look. Unlike those concealer colored lipsticks!!!!Love the bullet sleek packaging MAC is known for!

there's just no point to this lipstick---if you're going to go red, go red! this is a muted browny red which is too dark to wear on a daily basis, to work or as a nude. I don't find uses for it because i normaly like a nude or pink or brown lip, or a real true red. This is neither and it is drying as well.

I'm cool skinned and rather pale and this really works for me as well. If I pair it with my Mac redd liner it brings out a little more red. My husband called it fetching.

This would definitely be one of my favorite MAC lipsticks that I own which I wear/can wear everyday because although it's a red its a peachy-brown red so it's quite subtle unlike Ruby Woo or Russian Red.Since the finish is 'satin' my lips doesn't feel that dry after application. In my photo I have just one layer on. If you apply 2 or 3 layers it can get darker than that.Oh and all MAC lipsticks smell heavenly anyway so I wouldn't even have to really be mentioning that :D

I have purchased this lipstick twice already. When I first bought it at my local counter, the lady helping me said it wasn't a color she reached for often when recommending to customers, but that it was gorgeous and she would start doing so. By the time I came in to repurchase, they were out of stock. Why? Because this shade, while a bit unexpected, is totally gorgeous. It is a deep, terracotta color, redder than Bric o la and Cream in your Coffee, which tend towards orangey/brown, and deeper/more dramatic than Twig, Fast Play or Spice is Nice, which are more muted. I don't think the pictures posted here do it justice - they make it appear lighter and more reddish, whereas it is definitely deeper and richer. This looks great on warm toned skin of all shades - I first purchased it when I was very pale (NC20), and preferred the color then, though it still looks gorgeous now that I have a tan. I love this color because it has all the glamour and boldness of a red lip, but gives a slightly more sophisticated and demure look. I only rated it four stars because, as mentioned by others, the texture is slightly drying (although this is what you'd expect from Mac mattes). Make sure you moisturize your lips before applying, and I definitely recommend using a liner.
