PAC Retro Matte Gloss 17 Review, Swatches: Hello Lovelies! I am back again with another lipstick review from PAC Cosmetics. Pac has came up with all types of lipsticks like matte, creamy as well as liquid lipsticks. The lipstick I am reviewing today is from their liquid lipstick range named as Pac Retro Matte Gloss.
They have not named their lipsticks, they have numbered each shade which I find hard to remember. I have 4 to 5 shades from this range and I love each and every shade of it. Today I am reviewing Pac Retro Matte Gloss in the shade 17. To know more about this lipstick please keep reading my views on it below.

In Detail PAC Retro Matte Gloss 17 Review, Swatches and My Experience
Pac Retro Matte Gloss comesin a black cardboard packaging. It has all the information printed on it in white. The actual liquid lipstick comes packed in a thick transparent tube with black screw cap. It has shade number glued at the bottom of the lipstick. The cap closes tightly, thus it is travel friendly. The liquid lipstick comes with a small doe foot applicator which helps in applying lipstick precisely. Overall I liked the transparent tube packaging, as it is easy to spot the colour in the stash.
Texture & Finish
It has semi liquid consistency, neither too thick nor too liquid-y. It glides on lips effortlessly without tugging on the lips. The lipstick is very pigmented, one swipe is enough to cover entire lips perfectly. It settles into a matte finish within a minute.
It does dry out lips, so it essential to apply a lip balm underneath. This will make it comfortable to wear. Though it does not feel uncomfortable even when applied directly, but it is a little drying.
Pac Retro Matte Gloss Shade 17
Pac Retro Matte Gloss in shade 17 is a beautiful berry shade. This shade is not an everyday wear as it is very deep in real. It will look really good on so many occasions especially when paired with ethnic outfits. Shade 17 instantly perks up my overall look and also makes my skin look more bright. This shade will suit all skin tone girls perfectly.
It stayed on my lips amazingly for about 7 to 8 hours. It suffers meals also. Like I ate popcorn and drank tea, but this lipstick had not budged from its place. Pac suggests to avoid very oily food. Because eating oily meal will fade the lipstick from centre of the lips. Removing the lipstick it is a little tough. I remove it with my Biotique makeup removing oil and than I follow it up with micellar water to completely remove all traces of it.
PAC has really done an amazing formulation I must say. A definite try out product if you wanna try anything from this brand. I really love this berry shade. The pigmentation is also very impressive. It stays on my lips for about 7 to 8 hours which is really amazing.
