MAC Cosmetics Evening Rendezvous matte lipstick: a review and a study in purple!

As an effort to prove you can never have too many purples, I decided to pull out some of my faves to compare to the latest purple release from MAC Cosmetics, Evening Rendezvous.

MAC Cosmetics Magic of the Night Evening Rendezvous matte lipstick review

Released as part of the Magic of the Night collection, Evening Rendezvous is described as a deep reddish purple matte. It comes in a pretty metallic purple tube (but my press sample came in basic black so let’s focus on the beauty inside).

This is such a perfect matte; not too dry and not too shiny. It doesn’t feather, it barely transfers and it wears for well over 6 hours.

Bring on the Fall weather because I’m ready for it with this vampy purple shade. Shown here paired with the hottest MAC item right now, Oh, Darling! Skinfinish.

Now let’s gather around, all ye purples. See how different, unique and beautiful you all are.
(Can you guess the shades?)

MAC Cosmetics Men Love Mystery Strong Woman Evening Rendezvous Rebel Pure Heroine
Of all the purple MAC lipstick I have, these are the ones that leaned closest to Evening Rendezvous as far as tone (cool vs. warm) and depth (pale vs. deep).

The closest comparison is Strong Woman from the Strength collection a few years back. Both are matte but Evening Rendezvous is a bit darker and has a tad more of a plum tone to it. And as you can see, each shade is different therefore a justifiable purchase… right?

MAC Cosmetics Magic of the Night Holiday 2015 Please Me All Fired Up Evening Rendezvous Darkside lipstick
As if having another beautiful purple lipstick in your collection wasn’t enough, LOOK at this stunning purple packaging it comes in? I couldn’t resist and grabbed All Fired Up as well just for the tube (and of course the beautiful bright retro matte lipstick that will soon be gracing the pages of this site).

So what do you think? Buy all the purple lipsticks???

If you want to grab Evening Rendezvous, it’s still available online a MACcosmetics.ca and will be in stores Oct 22.

 

 

 

  • OUUUUHHHHHHH! Oh my oh my I may need this. Purple AND in a purple package? Too much.

  • Yes, buy ALL the purple lipsticks. <333

    I just received Evening Rendezvous and it so looks way better and more berry tone on you! On me it looks like death purple – if that makes any sense, and therefore a little terrifying for me. However, I did try it on without any other makeup though, so hopefully it will look different when I fancy myself up a bit. When I looked online it looked a bit more berry toned. Hopefully I can figure out ways to wear it without looking like death warmed over, lol
