Coral Plated

MAC Coral Plated Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, orange-copper with warm, yellow undertones and faint, golden pearl. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, and the color was fluid enough to apply evenly across the lips without having to work at it. The texture was thicker than others in the line-up, but it wasn’t too thick and did not take long to dry down, though there was a bit of product that dried down into my deeper lip lines. It wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.17 oz. - $123.53 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "pure matte metallic colour" that "lasts and lasts" for eight hours. Most of the shades were quite pigmented--semi-opaque to opaque--and applied evenly, though there were a few misses that had more watery textures that either lacked in pigmentation or went on patchily. I'd say about half the range felt non-drying over time but some were noticeably drying. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Foiled

MAC Foiled Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, reddish-brown undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was harder to build up, as the consistency was on the watery side and prone to apply unevenly. This shade lasted for six and a half hours on me but did not fade evenly away from the center of the mouth. The formula felt somewhat drying after five hours of wear.

Metrochrome

MAC Metrochrome Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, and while it could be built up, I found that the more metallic texture was less forgiving and very prone to emphasizing my lip texture quite a bit. The texture was a little more substantial than a thin formula, but it wasn’t heavy or thick, so I did not have trouble applying it along the edges of my lips. It wore well for five and a half hours and was somewhat drying.

Surprised about Metrochrome’s rating. I’ve worn it several days this week and have been very happy. Wearing Foiled today for the first time. It’s after lunch and so far so good!!
