Uniformly Fabulous

MAC Uniformly Fabulous Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a blackened purple with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not opaque, in a single layer. The texture was smooth, thinner but not watery, and spread easily across the lips for even coverage. It dried down and did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. This shade wore well for eight hours but was drying.

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!).

Young Attitude

MAC Young Attitude Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep, bluish teal with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The formula was thin and a little watery, so the color did not apply as evenly as a lot of the shades from the range have. It had a tendency to appear a little streaky with some areas appearing darker than others. It had semi-opaque coverage, and a second layer would be doable without causing texture/wear issues later on. This shade lasted for seven hours but faded more noticeably from the center of the mouth, while the formula was drying. It did leave a bluish stain behind.

Uniformly Fabulous is gorgeous!! And it rated really well, but it’s always nice to see a super dark color that isn’t streaky.
Sad that Young Attitude didn’t do as well as it seems like a really pretty and unique color. I love it paired with your eye look Christine!

Oh my, love Uniformly Fabulous!! How did it wear down for you Christine? The worse is when it just disappears in the middle/inner rim of the lip especially if it’s a dark color. Also, is this one of those formulas you have to take off the whole thing for touch up purposes?

I would say it depends on how long you wear it for and what you’ve eaten. You might be able to touch up here and there!

I so love the color of Young Attitude!!!! I wish it had gotten a better grade! (Or that there was a close dupe in a regular lipstick!!)

Oh gosh! I love the color of Young Attitude, but I have to turn it and the other shade down after seeing that both are drying. But I may just have to accept that 95% of dry-down lipsticks will never work with my combination of tactile issues and dry (to me) lips.

MAC Young Attitude I haven’t confirmed the shade yet in person reminds me of the LE shade Peacock from Lime Crime as well. It’s s shame on the formula though as it being a permanent one make sit more of a viable option for blue based teals on the market.

I love these colors! I’m glad to hear a second layer of Young Attitude would work. I don’t mind doing as second layer, as long as it doesn’t mess up the first.

God, I really need to get into wearing Bite Squid Ink! I bought it for Christmas but have yet to wear it.

Also, I love these colors, too bad about the formula though.

Goodness, I love Uniformly Fabulous. I’ve bee looking for this exact color and coverage. I’m just so sad that its from Mac, because they test on animals and I don’t buy their products. I wish they both had a closer dupe, because I would snatch those up!
