In Detail PAC Retro Matte Gloss Shade 19 Review, Swatches and My Experience
It comes in a black cardboard box packaging which has all the necessary details written on it. Inside there is a very sleek little transparent tube of lip gloss. The packaging is overall very simple and basic nothing much to rave about. Coming on to the applicator of the product the applicator is very nice it helps to put the product on the lips precisely.
Coming on to the shades they have a wide range of shade selection from light to dark. You will find all shades in this range. I am pretty sure everyone will at least find not one but 4-5 shades for themselves easily. A big thumbs up for the shade selection.
Starting of with the review, I bought the PAC retro matte lip gloss in shade 19. It’s a very beautiful, neither too bright nor so settled rosy pink colour. This shade will flatter beauties with fair to medium complexions. Beauties with duskier skin tones will have to use a darker shade lipliner just to make this colour standout a little more. The lipstick is very beautiful on its own. It brightens up my complexion as soon as I apply this on my lips. The best thing about this lipstick is that although it’s matte, it does not dry down my lips. It does not feel uncomfortable or patchy. It glides easily on the lips.
The texture of this is very soft. I won’t say buttery but yes one of the comfortable formulas to try out. The pigmentation of this is the best. One swipe and you get fully opaque coverage on the lips. I see no need to layer it twice. Lastly the staying power of PAC retro matte lip gloss is 6-7 hours. After that it starts coming off. Make sure you don’t eat oily food or the product may end up slipping from centre of your lips.

Do I Recommend PAC Retro Matte Gloss Shade 19
I love the lipstick especially the shade. I would definitely give it a big thumbs up. but I would also suggest you to buy when there is some sort of sale or promo offer going.
1) If you have very dry lips I would suggest you to use a lip balm first and hydrate your lips and then use the product.
2) To make the colour stand out a bit extra and to increase the staying power of the lipstick use a similar shade or a nude lip pencil underneath your lipstick.
3) Use a lipgloss for a glossy effect if required.
4) Take a good makeup remover and then remove the lipstick properly.
