MAC: Matte & Gloss
I bought these lip thingies already last fall, but had no inspiration to write about them back then. MAC released a Retro Matte collection back then I bought Flat Out Fabulous (bright fuchsia) and Fixed On Drama (brown based dark red). FAF is easier and nicer to work with and it stays on lips the whole day, whereas FOD is a bit trickier. It applies a bit unevenly like Smoked Purple (which is matte).
If you want your lipstick to glide on with ease then stay away from Retro Mattes. ;) I love the matte finish they give and I always apply a this layer on lip balm just before putting on the lipstick.
I used to wear lipglosses everyday, but now I only use lipsticks. So I probably should've left the two Lipglasses at the MAC stand. Berry red Utterly Tart is so pretty, but I just don't use it. Liqueur is nice brownish nude shade and goes well with dark eyes, but once again I rarely use it.
