You can never own too many lipsticks, right? False, but we will pretend that it is deemed acceptable these days to help us sleep at night. With that said, I went and added two brand new MAC lipsticks to my collection of lip products that I am quite pleased about.
The first new lipstick shade I picked up was the ever popular matte bold lip in Russain Red. This is a very popular shade when it comes to pulling off that eye-catching red lip look and has been often voted better than the same company’s shade Ruby Woo, mostly because the first shade is less drying on your lips. I have worn them both now and love them both. Russain Red is classified as an intense bluish-red shade of red, while Ruby Woo is classified as a very matte vivid blue-red shade. Very similar, but the tiniest bit different. I like having the option to have this blue-red shade of lipstick in a slightly less drying formula and still be quite matte.
The second colour I decided to purchase is actually the one I am more excited about. Originally it caught my interest because of its name, Crème in Your Coffee, and any coffee lover would gravitate towards it, naturally. This pinkish brown cremesheen shade is actually very similar to another shade I already own (Twig) but even though I love both of them, the newer shade to my collection is a tad bit darker. I love matte lips, but I make an exception every now and then if a really good lipstick shade comes along. I love to match this shade with my Marcelle 2 in 1 Retractable Plumping Lip Liner in the shade Cool Berry. I know it doesn’t match the lipstick colour perfectly, but I find that layering the lipstick over this lip liner gives the ultimate everyday autumn lip colour that I am currently in love with. I can see myself reaching for this new lipstick quite often over the next handful of months as we get into the cooler seasons.
Standing around the lipstick display in a MAC Cosmetics store can be dangerous, but I tend to space out my purchases quite far from one another. Do you have any favourite MAC lipsticks that I should keep an eye out for? Let me know in the comments below!
