MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Von Teese – £17.00.
Another fabulous MAC Cosmetics collaboration hit their website this week… I’ve been a bit underwhelmed with a few of their collaborations of late but this one has certainly restored my faith. MAC have paired up with the gorgeous, sultry and seductive burlesque superstar, Dita Von Teese to celebrate the launch of her new book “Your Beauty Mark”. Obviously the colour had to be a wonderfully vibrant red to match Dita’s signature red lip. It really couldn’t have been anything else. Von Teese is described by MAC as a ‘vivid red for a seductive spirit’ and it is just that – I was instantly sold. You can’t have too many red lipsticks in your stash, can you? Who doesn’t love a classic red lip? I know I do. The lipstick comes in the standard black bullet but with a difference. It has Dita’s signature emblazoned on the bullet as well as being embossed on to the lipstick itself (think MAC Riri Woo). Von Teese is super pigmented and applies completely opaque with no tug or pull. It offers a matte finish (my favourite) but it isn’t overly matte to the point of being overly drying. It wears really comfortably. I took it for a test drive last night whilst I was out eating with my mother and it wore really well for a good few hours. I think this is going to be the red that I reach for throughout the Christmas period.
Keep an eye on the website for more stock. In true MAC style, this sold out the day that it was released.
