MAC All Fired Up Retro Matte Lipstick Swatches, LOTD

You know, there's a song called 'All Fired Up' by a band called 'The Saturdays' (video here). Weird coincidence, I must say. Today is Saturday, if you read this another day & wonder what I mean.
MAC All Fired Up is another shade from Retro Matte Collection. It's described as Bright Fuschia Matte. Do you think it looks fuschia?
The color may look like a warmer red in photos, but it is actually a pink-toned red. In my eyes, it looks better off-camera. I find that it has a slightly creamier texture than the other Retro Matte lipsticks, but it could just be because she's yet to catch up to her friends in Mount Very Matte.
Since the finish is so matte, it stays on for hours and hours- most times, until you wipe it off - and leaves a strawberry pink stain when it wears off. It can be worn sheer or opaque, and it's a really good alternative to more mature reds, like MAC Ruby Woo & Riri Woo
It's different from all the other similar shades of MAC lippies I have. Redder/deeper than Impassioned & Party Parrot. It is almost the same shade as Deborah Milano Red #9, but of course the finishes are totally different, North-South different.
 
Above is the true color, below it looks a little warmer maybe coz I changed into a red dress (and another pair of earrings).....

I realized this shade is almost like the pinkish-red Christina Aguilera was wearing in her music video- Your Body. I was eyeing her lipstick when I watched the video the first time, and thought what an unusual red it was. It's different from the usual classic reds she always wore.

Price ~ £15 | Rs.1506. Probably Rs.990 in India.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥  4.8/5

Not sure if this a Limited Edition or Permanent like the other Retro Matte lipstick, Flat Out Fabulous, which I've swatched here




What's getting you all fired up today? Me, it's 5 big packets of  frozen momos that were finally available today after being out of stock for weeks. Oh, and something I got from Accessorize, something I've never bought before. You'll see.
 Set your weekend on fire!  ....nah.... Fire up your weekend!  ....nah.....Stir some fire....ahh, forget it.
Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Love it on you! It looks more hydrating compared to the pink matte shade from them! I do like an off red lipcolor, it softens the intensity just a bit!

  21. You make me want to try out these retro matte lipsticks - specifically in this color and Flat Out Fabulous - soo badly, even though I usually use glossier lipsticks since I hate the feeling of dryness (especially now since my entire face has been excessively dry with allergies). I wish super matte didn't mean super drying. T_T The colors are beautiful, and the finish is part of the reason why.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
