MAC Retro Matte Lipsticks (Part 1)

The MAC Retro Matte Collection brings back MAC’s Retro Matte with a vengeance, as it includes seven new shades in the finish. The collection will launch online the week of September 3rd and in-stores on September 12th (North America), and September 2013 for international locations. There is some uncertainty whether all shades are permanent or only some; the answer I received from MAC’s PR was some, which is what I’ve gone with, but the nearest counter/store are both saying all are permanent.  Each lipstick retails for $15.00 and contains 0.10 oz.

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Red Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Red Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick with a red theme. Two of the shades are repromotes, and one is part of the permanent range.   The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick; Candy Yum Yum and Violetta are both permanent shades, while Moxie is a repromote of an older, discontinued shade (that was also brought back last fall with By Request). The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price).

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three limited edition shades of lipstick with a nude theme. The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price).
