I have a lipstick I have been dying to share with you today. MAC’s and Dita Von Teese’s Von Teese a beautiful vivid tomato red. I absolutely adore Dita Von Teese so when I heard she was creating a lipstick with MAC I knew I had to get it. From what I can see it is an online exclusive, so I paid for youshop just to make sure I got it. So beware this post have a few more pictures than usual 😉
I have even more lipstick for you today…yes more M.A.C. lipstick. This one is Rebel.
Since buying Impassioned I’ve really been trying hard to try other lipstick colours besides red. I went out with Delly over the weekend, this of course meant going to a M.A.C. store as it is our latest obsession. There she managed to convince me that I needed Rebel in my life and that I should also get Cyber. Delly is biased and thinks I look lovely in everything so I took it for a road test yesterday at work and I can’t say I feel in love just yet BUT its one wicked lipstick!
How have you been? I am at home today trying to get rid of a possible cold before it turns into the plague. The weather has been forgiving enough for me today to get you some photos of my recent purchases.
Where to start with this beauty? So I’ve recently decided to make the switch to M.A.C. cosmetics as my base makeup. It is something I have been thinking about for a while, because M.A.C. is not cheap here in New Zealand. I think for me the reasons to change to M.A.C. are I’m sick of having makeup that is close enough. Sometimes I’m lucky to find a brand that has a foundation light enough for me, but even then they’re usually the wrong tone. Then they don’t last very long or they dry my skin out. Then goodness forbid if you want to ask they lady behind the counter about one of the products. When I walked into M.A.C. to pick up Ronnie Red when the Archie’s Girls collection was released I was amazed at how well they new their collections. The staff actually seemed interested in helping me out.
I took the plunge a few weeks ago and went and looked at their foundations and was impressed at the variety and the interest from the staff to help me find the right product for me. When I asked about a primer that would go with the Pro Longwear foundation and concealer I was purchasing the M.A.C. lady was able to instantly come up with two suggestions for me and help me then narrow it down to one.
The Primer I came away with was M.A.C.’s Prep and Prime Skin.
So earlier I bragged about getting my first lot of M.A.C. cosmetics. So now that I have taken them for a bit of a test run I thought I would share some swatches and a review with you. Tonight’s post is all about Ronnie Red, my latest red lipstick purchase.
Ronnie Red comes from M.A.C.’s latest collection Archie’s Girls. For those of you who aren’t aware, Archie is a comic series about a poor young who has two gorgeous romantic interests; Betty and Veronica. The collection is split between the two ladies, Betty’s being light, pink and girlies and Veronica’s being darker, vampy, purples and reds…So you know already who my favourite is XD
Anyway take a look at Ronnie Red and you’ll understand.
