MAC A Shade of Red For Every Heart
The MAC website states the following in a description of the collection, "For Valentine's Day...a selection of reds, from the brightest to the darkest, for every whim and decadent desire." I see every type of lip product in this collection, along with matching nail polish shades.
Here is the Valentine's Day collection...
Lipstick - Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made MAC famous.
- Cockney - sheer yellow red with multidimensional pearl (Lustre)
- Hang-up - deep berry (Cremesheen)
- Dare You - deep brown red (Cremesheen)
Pro Longwear Lipglass - A longwearing Lipglass that goes on smooth and lasts for up to six hours! Envelops lips with shine and colour and pro-longs the hours between reappliction.
- Driven by Love - red-blue with slight pearl
- Lasting Achievement - mid-tone purple with slight pearl
Lip Pencil - A pencil designed for shaping, lining, or filling in the lip. Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They are long-lasting and available in a wide selection of colours that each work well with many different lipstick shades.
- Beet - vivid reddish-pink
- Cherry - vivid bright bluish-red
Nail Lacquer - Revoluntionary new high gloss formula. Three long-wearing finishes - Cream, Sheer, and Frosted. Visibly different. Provides no-streak/no-chip finish. Contains conditioners and UV protection. Go hi-lacquer!
- Vintage Vamp - rich deep retro wine (Cream)
- Rougemarie - immodestly sexy red-bleu (Cream)
Love these reds! My favorite shade in this collection is the Lustre Lipstick in Cockney, a sheer neutral red shade. I do wonder how close this is to Ladybug, I already love this shade but I do wonder if I need to own both of them. I love the Hang-Up shade in the Lipstick too, this is a great deep berry that will work well for fall and winter. I can skip over the lip glosses, I'm not a huge fan of very pigmented, shiny red glosses. The same holds true for the Lip Pencils, I never use them and don't ever plan on starting. I do love both of the Nail Lacquer shades, I always am in the market for new reds and these are great reds to boot.
