MAC Burnt Spice, So Me, Topped with Brandy Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours

Burnt Spice

MAC Burnt Spice Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, dusty coral-rose with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade dried down quite a bit darker than it appeared in the tube! The consistency was thin, smooth, and was easy to spread across the lips for even coverage. It was richly pigmented and did not appear “cracked” after the color dried down on my lips. It wore well for six hours, faded evenly, and was somewhat drying over time.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

Burberry Light Nude (01) Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is light peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, more mousse-like so there was more body to the product but never felt heavy on the lips. This shade was one that I found more difficult to apply along the edges, possibly due to the paler base; it made me want to reach for a liner just to get a better edge. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly. The color wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating, but I had color pull into my lip lines after three and a half hours of wear.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time. The formula does not dry down completely, so there will be transfer, but the product is so pigmented that the color lasts awhile. I’ve found the colors to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless (I forget I’m wearing it) that was never drying and always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.
