Hope you all are doing well. Today I am here to review a lipstick from Mac which I am wearing a lot these days. It is also in my current favourite list. I am talking about the shade ‘All fired Up’ which is a retro matte lipstick from Mac and it comes under their permanent category. It is a beautiful red-toned fuchsia which is not so bright but is pretty wearable for almost Indian skin tones I guess.
It is described as a bright fuchsia retro matte finish
It is intensely pigmented; within a single or two swipes you can get the almost opaque look.
Staying power is good enough up to 5 hours for me with little bit of fading.
This lipstick comes in a black sturdy typical Mac lipstick packaging. For me ‘All fired up’ is not that much bright, but a red-toned fuchsia which has very subtle blue undertones, and pretty much wearable for almost every Indian skin tones. May be for very fair skin it may look more bright but I find it as my go-to fuchsia. It has a mild vanilla fragrance. Now coming to the texture,It is very light weighted which feels like really light on your lips after application, I found it little drying and need to put lip balm or exfoliate your lips before wearing this lipstick. Otherwise if you have dry lips, it will start crumbling over your lips and make the application uneven. So proper moisturisation or exfoliation is required to achieve a smooth even finish. I always put lip balm underneath for any extreme matte lipstick I wear to avoid flakiness and patches. It has really good pigmentation; one or two swipe is enough for full coverage. It has the wear time of almost 4 to 5 hours with little fading after meals and leaves a pink stain on your lips.
