Round-up: MAC Pro Longwear, Retro Matte, & MAC x Antonio Lopez Collections Reviews, Photos, Swatches


MAC Retro Matte Collection

Pro Longwear

Online now (for maccosmetics.com), online shortly at other online retailers; in-stores on September 5th.

Retro Matte Collection

Online NOW at maccosmetics.com; online next week for online retailers; in-stores on September 12th.  As a heads-up, all the new shades are showing up under the “limited edition” tab, which only further confuses everyone on what (if any?) shades are permanent or not.

Antonio Lopez

It may be online this week along with Retro Matte, but I wasn’t given a specific online date (they have been launching approximately one week prior to the in-store date). This collection will be in-stores on September 12th.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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!

I just heard from a mac employee that have readjusted their permanent displays to make room for some of these retro mattes. The question is which ones? 🙁

Just a heads-up to readers: Pro Longwear and Retro Matte are both up on the MAC website.
Pro Longwear has its own link under “New Collections”, while Retro Matte lipsticks and lip liners can be found under LIPS –> Lipstick –> Lipstick, and LIPS –> Lip Liner –> Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, respectively.

Unusually, the Antonio Lopez collection is already out in Australia! I saw the display today. That pretty much never happens, we normally get collections a good month after the states.

Hi Christine,

I didn’t know where to ask this, so I thought I would ask here! I was trying to see if you reviewed the Viva Glam III and I think it might be the only viva glam lipstick you haven’t tested? or have you? I’ve been looking everywhere and can’t seem to find it!

It’s a matte plum-brown shade? Just wanted to see if you had reviewed or if I’m lame and can’t find it lol. If you have the time, I would to know if you have reviewed it! I rarely buy things without checking your review first, and thank you for everything you do, this site is BEYOND amazing!! =)

Hi Mandy!

I don’t think I have reviewed it, unfortunately! 🙁

Thank you so much, Mandy! I wish I had that review for you!
