Packaging
The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor is packaged like a lipgloss, but the top is similar to their lipstick bullets. The packaging is see through hence its very to identify a particular shade even if you’re in a hurry. The MAC Liquid Lipcolour comes boxed like their lipsticks and mentions all the necessary details. It comes with a doe foot applicator which is of great quality and I find it very easy to line my lips with the pointed edge.

Texture
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour has a very lightweight and mousse like formula. It applies well but can be tricky to work with if you have dry lips which is the case with most matte liquid lipsticks. Personal Statement can be uneven and accentuates lip lines unless the lips are properly prepped and primed. I personally prefer applying it on top of a lip balm. I do not find it as comfortable as the NYX Soft Matte Lipcreams but those aren’t as intensely matte as the MAC ones.

Shade
MAC Personal Statement
is described as a shocking pink and that is pretty accurate. It is a blue based vivid pink and though such shades usually do not flatter our warm Indian skintone but it surprisingly looks great on me. This will mostly suit fair to medium skintone and is a color best bought after trying it out at the store. However, its one of the best bright pink lipsticks I’ve come across.

Pigmentation & Staying Power
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor Personal Statement is well pigmented and a single swipe or 2 provides full coverage. The other colors from the range are more pigmented and give an intense finish in just a swipe. This shade is a bit tricky in texture and finish compared to the other colors in the range which are somewhat better to work with.

The staying power is just amazing with this one and it stays put for a solid 6 hours including meals and drinks. It starts getting a bit patchy after that but I’m really happy with the wear time. Even the other shade, High Drama is equally long lasting and leaves a strong stain which does not need to be touched up and is hard to remove. However, I do feel the price is way too high considering its just $20 in USA.

HBM Rating
3.5 / 5(Reviewed by Lisha B.)MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor Personal Statement Review, Swatches, Price & Buy India

HBM Recommendation: MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Personal Statement is a vivid barbie pink which is bold and gorgeous. The texture is lightweight but intensely matte hence it can be drying unless the lips are well exfoliated. The pigmentation and staying power is superb so unless you have dry lips or hate a flat matte finish, I would totally recommend it.
