M.A.C. Matte Lipstick Bad Girl RiRi (Limited Edition) : Review/FOTD

M.A.C Retro Matte lipstick Bad Girl RiRi  from The RiRi <hearts> M.A.C. Holiday Collection (INR 1100/3g) ,  is described as Matte Taupey Nude and is available only for a limited time across M.A.C. Stores . It is not quite Nude but instead a matte soft brown with a touch of rosiness that makes it a great a shade for medium skin tones likes mine. And I surely can see a hint of gray in the color and because of that, I feel it's quite a unique color for my collection.

The lipstick is encased in a white pearl packaging with Rose Gold detailing and Rihanna's signature etched on the lipstick bullet. The packaging is a delight to look at. The lipstick has M.A.C.'s signature vanilla scent.


The texture is much like other mattes from MAC, smooth to apply, yet not too creamy, but still gives a matte finish. It applied without any tugging or pulling. It provides opaque color on the lips in a single swipe, and the color lasted on for 6+ hours and faded evenly on my lips, without any stain behind so after a meal or snacks, touch ups are must. The lipstick wears comfortably and even after it faded, I did not feel any dryness. MAC's mattes are very comfortable to wear that way!





Right from the packaging, to the shade,and the texture, I can't find a single flaw in Bad Girl RiRi. It's an excellent color for everyday wear, and an awesome companion to the deep dark smokey eyes. If you like neutrals, you will like this for sure! 

*P.S.: I had a tough time capturing the actual shade , how it appears in the FOTD is more close to the real color.

    1. It's truly gorgeous especially because of the "Taupe" factor..It's a very unconventional nude for me since most nude lipsticks I've come across are mostly brownish in tone :)
