MAC Retro Matte Lipstick All Fired Up :Swatch, Review, LOTD And FOTD

Coming from the league of MACย Retro Matte Lipsticks, here is my second and the last review on All Fired Up.ย  I love the name of this lipstick.. ๐Ÿ˜€ This went OOS in Kolkata when it was launched, but I managed to get it from Mumbai. ๐Ÿ˜€
I donโ€™t want to much blabber about Retro Matte Collection which I already did on my previous review of Flat out Fabulous.. ๐Ÿ˜€
Letโ€™s head straight to the review:

What MAC has to say about the Retro Matte Collection:

Inspired by Ruby Woo’s overwhelming popularity and one-of-a-kind texture, Mโ€ขAโ€ขC introduces new bold shades in its Retro Matte finish. Eye-catching colors like Dangerous and All Fired Up create a look that’s fiercely feminine. Mโ€ขAโ€ขC also premieres Pro Long wear Lip Pencils in a vibrant color palette, giving this long-lasting and transfer-proof lip pencil an exhilarating makeover.
Price: Rs. 990/-

My take on MAC Retro Matte Lipstick All Fired Up:

MAC described All fired Up as โ€œBright Fuchsia Matteโ€, which is wrong imo. I mean this is no here close to fuchsia. :-/ย  The color is warm red shade which has subtle pink undertones. A better description would be Pink toned Red. Classic Reds likeย Ruby Wooย orย Riri Wooย may be a little more daring. This is a safer Red which I would suggest to people who are starting up with reds.

The shade All Fired Up is bright on its own so you need to pair with subtle eyes and a matching blush ! And I feel this shade will look best on every skin tone.

MAC All Fired Up Swatch!

The texture of the lipstick is drying but not as drying as Ruby Woo. The finish is Retro matte. Now Retro Matte needs no introduction. What I like is the lipstick does not tug on your lips. It glides pretty smoothly on lips and after few minute settles into a full matte finish. After an hour or so my lips do feel a little dry, so I apply balm over it to get rid of the dryness.

Once again itโ€™s a must to exfoliate and moisturize your lips well before applying Retro Matte Lipsticks.

This gives full coverage on your pigmented Lips. The staying power is amazing it stays for nearly 6-7 hours on lips which survived full meal.ย  It leaves behind very dark pink tint which looks damn pretty.
Pros of MAC All Fired Up:
  • Bright Pink toned red Shade.
  • A safer Red for the Beginners
  • Color is extremely bright and flattering.
  • Will suit every skin tone
  • Full coverage
  • Classic Retro Matte Finish
  • Staying power is Excellent.
  • Leaves a pretty dark pink Tint
  • Included in Permanent Range
Cons of MAC All Fired Up:
  • Texture wise its drying.
My Ratings: 4.5/5
Do I Recommend: As I said it is safer Red for Beginners. This kind of red can be ย easily pulled off in office or any other occasions. I can see myself reaching out for this when I want something brighter on my face. This will suit all skin tones without fail. And now that it is in Permanent Range, I will definitely re-purchase it. I will definitely recommend MAC Retro Matte Lipstick All Fired Upย to each and every one who looks out for Reds…!!!!!
