I am so excited about MAC's summer release of matte liquid lipsticks from the MAC Transformed Collection - the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours. These are beautiful opaque liquid lipsticks that dry into a velvety matte finish. In this review I'm gushing about a particular shade, MAC Slipper Orchid Lipstick.

MAC Slipper Orchid Lipstick. What a cute lipstick name. This shade is described by MAC as a "bright plum". I think of it more of a hot pink that's slightly on the fuchsia side. Its not as bright as MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick. It's perhaps similar to MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick from the permanent collection. My DH has been trying to get me back on to the bright pink lipstick bandwagon this summer, and I think this lipstick should do the trick.

With the velvety finish, these retro matte lipsticks do need a good prep in order to look decent. To make it work, I scrub off any dead skin flakes with Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub, and apply a lip balm or primer. I have found success with MAC Prep and Prime Lip. A cheaper alternative would be the minty Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue. Make sure you apply a decent layer (and don't wipe off!). The product comes with a doe foot applicator which can make application a bit tricky if you don't quite memorise your vermilion border just yet. What you can do to overcome this is apply a generous dab in the centre and spread with a ring finger. It works like a treat.

Overall I'm enjoying my new MAC Slipper Orchid Lipstick. This will undoubtedly be a summer fave!
