MAC Retro Matte HEAUX : Swatches and Review

Good morning, my darlings! Recently, a fellow blogger posted in one of our blogger groups asking what our favorite lipstick was for an upcoming Blogger Fave post and I immediately knew which one my pick would be--MAC Cosmetics Retro Matte in Heaux!

This gorgeous matte shade was part of the Riri <3 Mac for Summer 2013, a specially curated of MAC products by popular US singer, Rihanna! Along with Riri Woo and Riri Boy, Heaux was one of 3 limited-edition lipsticks for this particular collection.

Heaux is a gorgeous berry-red shade in MAC's signature matte finish. As you can see, it already has a LOT of mileage on it!

Here's a look at what the shade looks like on my tan complexion--it leans more of a darker shade of berry-red on me than I've seen with other blogger swatches.

Hands down, this is my favorite MAC that I own and I own quite a few *cough cough*. I'm totally addicted to MAC and I blame my mother! She's even more obsessed than I am and she's the one who got me started with my MAC obsession! Heaux is a serious matte and by that I mean, even after hours of eating, drinking and making merry, it does NOT budge. That being said, it does tend to get a little dry so I apply a bit of lip balm before I apply it and then a little more when my lips are feeling particularly matted out. But overall, out of all the piles of lipsticks I have, this is the one I reach for when I want to add a little oomph and sexiness to my look! Just the perfect, luscious berry shade! And here's a little pouty pic of me with it on! =)

Unfortunately, this shade is no longer available through MAC's website but if you like what you see and find a good deal on Ebay or Amazon, definitely snatch it up!

Do you have a favorite MAC? Which one? I'm always looking for recommendations--tell me in the comments section below!

Until next time,
