I need to have a few lipsticks replaced. I currently only have dark lippies – Ruby Woo and Viva Glam VI.
As soon as I get a commission from doing reports about hygienic levers, I will buy the following:
Mac Viva Glam V
These are nudish, orangey colors. I would want another pink lipstick but my husband didn’t like Mac Impassioned on me.
MAC has collaborated with a few brands and celebrities in the past, but this is the first time MAC is working with a celebrity for more than just one project. This is a “long-term relationship” that will see four distinct colour collections.
RiRi Woo will be exclusively sold online beginning May 2013 at www.maccosmetics.com and at Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts.(I am sure this will not be a part of a cigar affiliate program).
A summer collection will follow, which includes two more lipstics, a Lustre Drops shade and a powder blush duo. This will also be sold online. A third set, which will be sold in stores for Fall, include four lipsticks, a deeply pigmented Lipglass version of RiRi Woo, two multishade eye shadow palettes and false lashes. The fourth collection will be released just in time for Holiday season – 10 pieces which include nail polish, makeup bags and additional lipsticks.
Here is MAC’s Riri Woo. I have the classic MAC Ruby Woo and I know I would definitely be buying Riri Woo too if it becomes available locally.
If you thought the MAC and Nicki Minaj collaborating was done—think again! Just like Lady Gaga debuted a numero dos lip color for the brand’s Viva Glam (of which every single cent of the proceeds goes to the MAC AIDS fund), the colorful Trinidadian rapper from Queens debuts yet another lippie.
Nicki Minaj continues her reign as the hip-hop queen of M·A·C VIVA GLAM! The Lipstick-loving diva is back to serve up a delectable duo of Lipstick and Lipglass in an all-new shade of pastel lavender pink. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited edition.
You no longer need design experience — or a pulse — to get a retail collaboration these days. Hot off the heels of NARS‘s Andy Warhol collection comes a Marilyn Monroe tribute from M.A.C. Both beauty brands have chosen to honor deceased icons — NARS’s with a colorful, artsy line, and M.A.C. with buxom beauty essentials that a modern-day pin-up would need: ‘dramatic’ full false lashes ($16), extreme black mascara ($20), bright red lip pencil ($16.50) and more. The limited edition line also has a shimmery eye shadow called “Showgirl” and a “Vintage Vamp” nail lacquer. Va-va-voom

I love wearing red lipstick! My lips are naturally full, but they are not in the perfect shape so these tips would really help me. I have a long list of red lippies to buy as well as flud watches on my wishlist
Here is how you get the look:
Lips are over-drawn to give the appearance of fullness (obviously if you already have full lips you don’t need to do this) and the upper lip is given a full round cupids bow. You lips should already have foundation and powder on, this helps to prolong the lipstick and create a blank canvas for you to work with. Use a dull point lip liner in a shade that matches your lipstick – for instance, if you’re using Besame Red lipstick then you would use Beseme Masterliner in Red – Draw the desired lip shape and then fill the lips with the same liner. Apply a luscious red lipstick, like Besame Red lipstick. Cover your lips entirely. You can use a brush if you find it easier. Carefully clean any difficult edges or smudges with foundation and a cotton bud. Lastly lightly sweep a light coloured (white or cream) matte Eyeshadow around the bottom lip and the cupids bow, blend. This really makes the lips pop.
Before I got addicted to bags and shoes, I love painting my face. Yes, I fell in love with make-up first, only I didn’t get to buy my own. Before I just raided my mom’s make-up stash and used whatever she had. Now that I have money on my own I get to choose which ones I like. I tend to stick to tried and tasted (and basic) make-up tools though: Bobbi Brown brushes, Urban Decay Glide on Pens, NAKED Palette, NARS blushes, MAC powder and MAC lippies. The rest I get to replenish once a year and the barcode scanners of Sephora are absolutely happy but MAC lipsticks – oh my. I can hoard and hoard and still have so many on my wishlist.
Currently I have these three on my immediate wishlist (meaning they are next on my list for buying once I have the extra money) – notice two of them have the same shade (sorta):
MAC VIVA GLAM V
MAC SHY GIRL
I currently have the MAC lipsticks Angel and Viva Glam VI. Ruby Woo is on its way too I can’t wait!
Such a jean-ius play on words don’t you think?
Similar to how the word yoyo has such great recall with the toy, the word jeans has become strongly related to the color blue. This is why MAC (I think!) decided to name its new limited edition eyeshadow name after. It comes in four colors that replicate different denim hues – Diva in Distress, Motorhead, StovePipe Black and White Jeanius. The one pictures above is Motorhead.
Diva In Distress Mid-tone gray with silver pearl (Limited Edition)
Motorhead Mid-tone blue with copper pearl (Limited Edition)
Stove Pipe Black Black with copper pearl (Limited Edition)
White Jeanius White with silver pearl (Limited Edition)
Each shadow is about $20 and is part of a limited edition collection, so if you want it:
Launch Date: March 3, 2011 for North America, March 2011 for International.
It seems we haven’t even really experienced winter yet (no snowstorms and shoveling 12 feet of snow and no cases of road trip medical assistance – thankfully) and we are celebrating spring already! MAC is already promoting their spring limited edition collection and I personally love all the pinks and greens!
Brilliant butterflies, flashy florals and gorgeously geometric graphics…A colourful collaboration between M·A·C and the artist known worldwide as Vera, who merged fine arts with linens, murals, textiles and silk scarves in her punchy, painted patterns. Now in shades plucked straight from her most lavish prints, M·A·C Vera embraces the luxe, lighter-than-air spirit that delivers the kind of startling, look-at-me statement that defines what it means to be an instant classic. Limited Edition.
