I've been waiting many years for this collection. I love the retro matte formula, it is by far my favorite. It is the only finish of mac lipstick that is clay based, which is why it is so matte.

Must haves for me are: Relentlessly Red and Dangerous.

Pro Longwear Lipsticks hold a special place in my heart because the are so amazing to use in my kit for bridal work. They truly do last much longer on the lips than regular lip pencils. The best one of the bunch in my opinion is Dynamo. An amazing pinky coral vibrant color. The worst is definitely Trust in Red because it's pigmentation  wasn't as great as the rest of the pencils. These glide on smoothly and don't budge for hours!

I did swatches of all of the retro mattes including the Riri retro mattes, as well as all of the pro longwear lip pencils for comparison.

  1. Hi Lauren! Could you please do some comparison swatches such as between Flat out Fabulous and Quick sizzle? I have the latter and can't figure out if I "need" both! Thanks anyway ;)
