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.
