I love getting new lipsticks, so I was ecstatic when my sister got me a MAC gift card for my birthday. I had my eye on ‘Tropic Tonic’ for a while and had a bit of money left over so I opted to get ‘Retro’ as well.
I have wanted ‘Tropic Tonic’ since the end of last summer when Suzie from Hello October was raving about it. It’s a beautiful vibrant pinky-coral hue which is perfect for this time of year. I had put off getting it since it was about to be autumn and I wouldn’t get as much use out of it but come springtime I was itching to get it! It is a matte finish, which is my all-time favourite. It looks nice with my pale complexion but I think it would look equally as good with a tan. It’s longwearing and doesn’t feel too drying on the lips.
The second one I picked up was ‘Retro’. This was a shade that I hadn’t heard much about before heading into the store but once I saw it, I had to have it. It’s a beautiful muted pinky-brown that I think will look good all year round. It is a satin finish and feels really nice on the lips. I’ve been pairing it with a brown smoky eye lately but I think it would look good on lighter makeup days as well.
