If I had to choose a favourite Make Up Brand for Lipsticks and Lip Pencils, it would without a doubt be MAC. I’ve been using their lipsticks for years and I absolutely adore them. To be fair, the normal packaging isn’t the most glamorous but, the quality of their lipsticks are absolutely wonderful and the sleek classic container is pretty iconic. All of their lipsticks have a variety of finishes; matte, satin, frost and amplified to name a few. Also, MAC often collaborate with celebrities and bring out beautiful collections such as MAC Viva Glam, which donate their proceeds to the MAC Aids Fund.
Therefore, I may have almost cried with joy when I saw on Dita Von Teese’s Instagram that she was collaborating with MAC to celebrate the release of her new beauty book; Your Beauty Mark. Dita is a huge fan of Old Hollywood like myself and so there was no doubt what shade her lipstick was going to be – red!
The lipstick is a blue tone red with a matte finish and Dita’s signature adorned onto the package as well as stamped onto the actual lipstick! It truly is a one of a kind and a classic red lipstick like no other! Furthermore, if you think the lipstick itself is beautiful – just wait until you see packaging! A stunning photo of Dita wearing the lipstick is imprinted onto the cover, unlike any of the other MAC lipstick packages which are usually sleek and simple. This is one case I intend to keep forever and ever!
Like all MAC lipsticks, the product goes on smooth and produces a lovely matte but vibrant finish, I didn’t even have to use a lip pencil before I applied it as it lasted for hours. Actually, as I’m writing this it’s still on now! Granted, it’s far from perfect as I’ve eaten a lot but, everyone would realize I was wearing red lipstick!
Sadly, with all MAC products and especially special collections, they sell out – and fast! I’ve just checked the UK website and the lipstick is sold out on there. However, considering it’s been such a success I wouldn’t be surprised if they restocked in time for Christmas and I’m sure they will pop up on ebay, so fear not!
I recommend this to all lipstick lovers, anyone who wants to stand out and step out of their comfort zone and to all modern day vintage girls like myself! I really hope MAC continue to work with Dita, she is an absolute Beauty Icon!
As for my outfit today I decided to go for an oldie but goodie, a River Island dress I got off my mum for my 20th Birthday! I hadn’t worn it for quite a while, as you can probably guess – it’s not a day to day kind of dress. But I love the velour material, it almost looks like the dress is metallic, I haven’t got any other clothes like it! My favourite thing about the dress is the wrap effect detail, it’s such a simple but beautiful touch!
