Moon Landing

MAC Moon Landing Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with cool, violet undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply evenly and was extremely prone to drying down into my lip lines and looking “cracked” when I smiled. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, but I noticed this particular shade seemed a little more watery and took longer to dry down (which may have contributed to application problems across the board). This shade lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was on the drying side.

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.

Buzzed Out

MAC Buzzed Out Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation but wasn’t quite opaque in a single layer. The product applied evenly for the most part, though there subtle streaks along the edges of my lips even after the product had dried down fully. The formula was fairly comfortable to wear, as the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin and did not feel clingy after it dried on my lips. It wore well for six and a half hours, left a faint stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

In Retrograde

MAC In Retrograde Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark red with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it wasn’t full coverage without a second layer. The liquid lipstick had a thin consistency that spread easily but did not seem overly watery, so I had no trouble controlling the color as I spread it across my lips. It stayed on well for eight hours and was non-drying.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

In Retrograde looks out if this world! If I weren’t on a low-buy, especially for lip products, I would buy this in a hot minute! Who knows? I still may….but would much rather see MAC add this particular shade to the permanent line-up. Then I would use the living heck out of UD Cruel so I could justify buying this!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
