Beauty Diaries: RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Review

The navy wasted absolutely NO time buying Rihanna’s last MAC holiday collection. I tried to purchase the lipsticks online and they were sold out in like 5 minutes! Luckily I was able to hit the mall when it opened and grabbed all three lipsticks, Pleasure Bomb, Bad Girl RiRi, and the infamous RiRi Woo. (review of RiRi Woo here)
Dupes/Swatches
Top to Bottom
2. Pleasure Bomb

This bright matte fuchsia color is a bit brighter than I normally go but its super pretty and goes on quite smoothly.
 Swatches/Dupes
Top: Bad Girl RiRi

This was also lighter than I normally go but will probably look great when glammed up. It also went on smoothly.
I think both lip sticks are a score. I can’t wait to pair them with different lip liners and makeup looks to see how I like to wear them best. 
I tried out MAC Nightmoth lip liner with Pleasure Bomb on top for my first experiment. 

Were any of you able to score this last RiRi Hearts Mac collection? What did you guys think?

Favorite Things: October Edition
Just a few things I’m vibin with this month.

1. This month’s issue of Glamour. Not only is Glamour one of my fave magazines but my babe is on the cover!

2. L’oreal’s Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black: My favorite eyeliner of all time, no pot or liquid liner that I’ve tried can beat it. (mentioned previously here )
3. Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara- I am absolutely obsesssed with this mascara. My only qualm is that I wish it came in darker kohl color. Otherwise love!
4. Elf Small Stipple Brush– I have been wanting to try a stipple brush and this was the perfect starter..and super cheap! It was only like $3!

 5. COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation in True Ebony. I actually use this as a blush on its own, a base for my powder blushes annnnnnd as a tool to contour my face. Its a little darker than my skin tone and is the perfect tool to use when I want to create a sharper, more drastic contour.

INGLOT Pure Pigment Eye Shadow – If you are looking for eye shadows, I would def recommend Inglot. Their eye shadows are super pigmented, a great price, and come in almost every color. I really love this shimmery color…looks great on a night out.
Last but not least…7. Riri Hearts MAC: Talk that Talk matte lipstick- Now I’ve said it before and now I will say it again, I looveee a matte lip and this color is perfect for fall. Love it!

Beauty Diaries- MAC Retro Matte Collection: Review

If you saw my previous post about MAC’s new Retro Matte collection, then you know how juiced I was to try these lipsticks out. So juiced that I bought two of the colors online, the first day they were released. 


I decided to try Flat Out Fabulous, described as a bright, plum color and Fixed on Drama, described as a rich wine color. I have similar colors in non-matte versions so I knew the colors would complement my skin tone. 

Unfortunately as I opened up the first lipstick, Fixed on Drama, and tried out the color on my lips, I noticed that this color lacked a certain punch I was expecting from a matte lip. 

There were no oohs or ahhs. The texture was definitely matte but the color on me was lackluster. I took this color lipstick off and tried on Flat Out Fabulous….


and I had the same feeling. The color just wasn’t doing much for me. Although this has made me a little less excited about this collection, I am determined to make these lip colors work for me.

In the meantime, I will be taking a trip to the MAC store to try on the rest of the collection in person to see if I can find any other winners. (I’m most excited to try All Fired Up, described as a bright fuchsia color)

MAC Retro Matte Collection for Fall 2013
From the moment I tried on MAC’s Ruby Woo red lipstick, I immediately knew matte lipstick was it for me. The texture and look of a matte lip just makes the color pop and look absolutely perfect on my skin. I have become seriously obsessed with all things matte since then…lips, nails, even cars.


 (Once you go matte, you never go back.)

 This is why I was literally ecstatic to learn that MAC would be coming out with an entire collection of matte lipsticks of the fall!

Each lipstick will be accompanied with a Pro- Longwear Lip Pencil. The lipsticks will be available online week of Sept 3rd and in-stores Sept 12th.
