Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.
This review is for 2 of the limited-edition Lipsticks releasing with MAC’s Punk Couture Collection for Winter 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Studded Kiss: Dark oxblood red (Retro Matte)
- Hautecore: True matte black (Retro Matte) (Repromote)
Studded Kiss is a deep, blood red. Hautecore is an almost-opaque black.
Neither of these shades has shimmer in them. Studded Kiss has a more matte finish compared to Hautecore, which has a hint of sheen to the finish.
For being Retro Matte in formula, these lipsticks are actually not that drying. But, compared to other formulas, these lipsticks are on the dry side and pull at/skip on the skin while you’re applying. And it’s nearly impossible to get a good line out of the tube, so you’re best off applying these colors with a brush.
