Mac - Riri - Hearts - Fall 2013 - range - swatches -review

As I'm sure most of you know mac launched its latest celeb collaboration. Mac RiRi Hearts Fall collection. The collection again sold out in under an hour. I was Lucky enough to get my hands on a few pieces from Rihannas new range. The collection is packaged in the most amazing rose gold casing and Rhiannas autograph printed in pink across the packaging.

Mac describes the collection as The perfect palette of fall colours, a range of decidedly daring yet classically gorgeous shades, finishes and tools all encased in the metallic warmth of rose gold packaging. Lipstick in deep raisin, orange frost, creamy nude and the vivid red of RiRi Woo and matching gleaming lipglass. While eyes in contrasting soft and smokey cocoas complement luminous skin.

The brush I bought is The MAC 187SE Duo Fibe Face brush. Its described on the website as A large, full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or powder blush. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of natural and synthetic fibers. Limited edition RiRi Hearts pink handle and rose gold ferrule. The brush is gorgeous and the bristles are ever so soft I love the pink tips on the bristles aswell.

I bought three of the lipsticks; nude, RiRi Woo and talk that talk. All are cool in colour and are in a retro matte finish. At first glance the nude looks slightly muddy, I wouldn't really describe it as a nude on my skin yet it is a beautiful shade none the less. It has a slight purple tinge to it and offers a nice alternative to the normal pinky nudes. Riri Woo is a beautiful deep red with blue tones so it doesn't make your teeth appear yellow which is one of my major dislikes about red. The matte finish also makes the red look less in your face and makes it suited to fashionistas of all skin tones. Talk that talk is a deep purple colour and is absolutely stunning not for the faint-hearted though as this lipstick is without a doubt a show stopping shade.

  1. The lipsticks look gorgeous! I wish I had managed to get one


  2. I never managed to get one but I was so put off by people's swatches before we got it here in the UK, the only one that looked like it applied well was Riri Woo - which looks gorgeous here!

  3. I never got the chance to buy anything boo! I had just made a Big Mac order the day before so I was spent. Love the red lipstick and I wish I had bought the eyeshadow palette now! Gorgeous.
