Spicy Pimienta

MAC Spicy Pimenta Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines.

The texture was smooth, fluid, and very spreadable to the point where I found it necessary to remove some product at the edge of the tube prior to applying. It dried down quickly, was somewhat flexible, and very long-wearing as it stayed on well for over eight hours and was non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.17 oz. - $123.53 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "long-wearing" with "pigment-soaked, liquid colour" in the "mattest matte finish." The brand stated that it should wear for "8 hours" and be "non-feathering, non-bleeding." The majority of shades in the formula are opaque in a single layer, and for the most part, I felt like more was on the applicator than necessary for an even, opaque layer of product on my lips.

Sometimes, with richer and less forgiving shades (e.g. more contrast), I found it imperative to remove some from the applicator prior to applying so I didn't get too much product along the edges. Some shades applied smoothly and dried down that way, while other shades dried down and separated more noticeably along deeper lip lines, so it really was shade-dependent.

The formula was quick to dry down, was somewhat flexible, and lightweight to wear. The formula was mostly non-drying with a few, thicker shades feeling a little more drying over time. Many shades lasted six hours or longer with some definitely meeting the brand's "8 hour" wear claim.

They had a subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Jalea

MAC Jalea Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a darker beige with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had full pigmentation in one layer of product, but as the product dried down, it was prone to separating along my deeper lip lines, though not the worst I’ve come across by any means.

The consistency was smooth, creamy, and very spreadable, as it was thinner and runnier, so I’d take care when applying as it was easy to get too much product on the applicator initially. It wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

Hi Katarzyna!

Because I’m not infallible, lol! I try hard to get a lot of dupes in, but there are thousands and thousands of swatches, so I can definitely miss some – that’s why we have submit a dupe so you can submit ones that you’re aware of 🙂
