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!
