MAC Retro Matte Collection

Pro Longwear

Online now (for maccosmetics.com), online shortly at other online retailers; in-stores on September 5th.

Retro Matte Collection

Online NOW at maccosmetics.com; online next week for online retailers; in-stores on September 12th. ¬†As a heads-up, all the new shades are showing up under the “limited edition” tab, which only further confuses everyone on what (if any?) shades are permanent or not.

Antonio Lopez

It may be online this week along with Retro Matte, but I wasn’t given a specific online date (they have been launching approximately one week prior to the in-store date). This collection will be in-stores on September 12th.

  1. I like the lip liner colors, though I’m sure I’ll find close enough colors in my collection already from NYX

    So the paint pots are not available in ALL stores until September 5?

    Oh mac, why do you do this to us, why? I’m reaching my breaking point.

    I just heard from a mac employee that have readjusted their permanent displays to make room for some of these retro mattes. The question is which ones? :(

    Just a heads-up to readers: Pro Longwear and Retro Matte are both up on the MAC website.
    Pro Longwear has its own link under “New Collections”, while Retro Matte lipsticks and lip liners can be found under LIPS –> Lipstick –> Lipstick, and LIPS –> Lip Liner –> Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, respectively.

  6. Unusually, the Antonio Lopez collection is already out in Australia! I saw the display today. That pretty much never happens, we normally get collections a good month after the states.

    Hi Christine,

    I didn’t know where to ask this, so I thought I would ask here! I was trying to see if you reviewed the Viva Glam III and I think it might be the only viva glam lipstick you haven’t tested? or have you? I’ve been looking everywhere and can’t seem to find it!

    It’s a matte plum-brown shade? Just wanted to see if you had reviewed or if I’m lame and can’t find it lol. If you have the time, I would to know if you have reviewed it! I rarely buy things without checking your review first, and thank you for everything you do, this site is BEYOND amazing!! =)
