PAC Retro Matte Gloss Review and Swatches


Today I am back with yet another review for you all. These are the PAC Retro Matte Gloss.  Liquid lipsticks have become my love and I cannot wait for new launches to try them out. I have been obsessed with them and I know most of you are too. All the huge brands in India too have launched Liquid lipsticks and that is great as there is a huge variety of shade selection is available in the market.

PAC Retro Matte Gloss Version 2.0 Review and Swatches

PAC cosmetics is one of my favorite Indian brand and it is seriously the most affordable brand too. They have launched so many amazing high quality products that are up-to the mark and they have changed the makeup game for good.

They launched their PAC Retro Matte Gloss sometime last year and frankly somehow it din appeal me enough to buy them. After few reviews it was branded as a very drying formula which was flaky too. This month PAC launched their Retro Matte Gloss in Version 2.0 and I couldn’t be happier about it. They have re-formulated these liquid lipsticks and have claimed that these are better version of the previous ones. So without wasting more time lets go on with the review.


The packaging of PAC Retro Matte Gloss is very sleek. The outer packaging is of usual cardboard with word “Retro” written on them and the shade number is written on the bottom.The bottle comes in a regular hard plastic tube. The applicator is the Flat side wand and I approve of it as it makes the application of liquid lipstick so much easier.

These are priced at ₹.550 for 6.5 ML of product. Which is quite affordable for a liquid lipstick.

Pigmentation and Color Pay-off

PAC Retro Matte Gloss liquid lipsticks are very pigmented. They are highly opague. They have watery texture. These liquid lipsticks have high pigmentation. They give good coverage and colour in one swipe and that I absolutely love. They give full opague colour in one swipe and settle down to complete matte finish within one minute. You can layer them as per your desire, as I found them to be very comfortable and non-flaky.
These does settle a bit in your lines after a long time of wear and that does happen with liquid lipsticks. It doesn’t dry of my lips, but these. Do neeed regular touchups. Although these are longlaosting they tend to fade from middle of the lips. Re-touching these is easy you can layer them and you are good to go.


There are alot of shades in the new launch.  20 new ones to be precise ? which makes the options of picking any colour from 40 liquid lipsticks. Thats huge PAC like reallyyy huge ?? and I picked up 3 from the new ones and one from the old line. BTW guysss!!!! Not only these new shades are in new formulation but the shades that were launched before are also reformulated.
I bought shade number 37, 38 and 40 from the new range of shades and shade 08 from the previous range.

Shade – 08 : This is a very pretty rustic brown shade. This looks absolutely stunning on all skintones and all my dusky friends this will look mesmerising on you all. This one is my personal favourite.

Shade – 37 : This one is a very beautiful pink shade with lavender undertones. Now by lavender you may think it will wash you out, but no this has slight undertones and this looks absolutely beautiful on all skintones.


Shade – 38 : This is a very pretty pink shade with red undertones. I love this one but this is a very common shade. However this will look very pretty on all skintones.

Shade – 40 : This is a perfect nude for me. This one does wash me out a bit, so I will say it is good for fair to medium skintones. I somehow started to like pale looking lips, you know the the exact shade of your lips kinda shades. With black smokey eyes these look soo soo pretty. This one has my heart, although it washes me out this tends to settle down and get a little darker after sometime of application.

Staying power

The PAC Retro Matte Gloss liquid lipsticks stayed on me for a good 6-7 hours with one touch-up. It started to fade from inner part of the lips after 3-4 hours of application.

Overall experience

Overall I really love the PAC Retro Matte Gloss liquid lipsticks. I have not used the previous versions of these liquid lipsticks hence I cannot say about previous formula, but this one, this one is hands down one of the best liquid lipsticks I have used. These are non-drying and non-flaky for sure and trust me I was super shocked to see them settle nicely and evenly on my lips without tugging or making them dry. The only drawback is the shade variety, they have launched so many shades but still there are hardly any nude or bold shades. They have a lot of pinks and corals which is great for summers. Sadly they don’t have name for their shades. You know!! Its quite fancy to say I have magnificent magenta on my lips than saying I have used shade 37 on my lips. (Just saying) but that is on drawback for me. I love all the shades that I picked up and will definitely buy more of these as I found them to be very comfortable and easy to use.


I would give these a 5/5 ratings.
