Mac - Relentlessly Red






Mac Relentlessly Red is the latest addiction to my lipstick collection. I'm not really one to wear red lips but with Christmas coming I was feeling festive and decided on this gorgeous colour to see me through the Christmas party's and celebrations.
 
Relentlessly Red is a matte formula from their Retro Matte Collection, a new one to me having only tried Macs Cremesheen, Lustre, and Frost finishes. The colour on first application is quite difficult to apply, it drags slightly and takes a while for the colour to show through. After this though the colour is very pigmented and gives a great bold lip look. 
"Bright pinkish coral matte"  Mac
The colour is a vibrate red with pink undertones I wouldn't really say it was a coral colour, on me it has more of a blue undertone. It's a great statement piece, teamed up with cat eye flick with plenty of mascara and your ready for a night out in a flash! 
 
As with most matte lipsticks the wear time is amazing, one coat can easily last a night out, that does all depend on how much you drink of course, but never the less the longevity is second to none. I find the formula to be quite drying and is best worn with a lip balm underneath to stop your lips from flaking. Never the less I'm in love with this colour and it has definitely converted me to red lips!! ;) 
 
What is your Christmas lipstick going to be?
