The holiday collection from MAC Cosmetics hit stores tomorrow, and if you’ve been on the fence about buying the Heirloom Mix lipsticks… maybe this will help you decide (*enabler alert*).
The Heirloom Mix packaging is simple, elegant and breathtaking. It is a sleek black patent tube with silver glitter. And this is not just stick-on glitter, this is mixed right into the plastic.
This release has 5 shades in total (3 new, 1 repromote, 1 permanent – which I did not buy in this packaging)
NO FAUX PAS is a hot pink matte. Think Pleasure Bomb meets Moxie.
It has quite a bright, bold blue tone to it, is more of a satin matte and stains the heck out of your lips. (but it is gorgeous so I’ll allow it)
Wear time is really quite long, mostly because it is a hydrating matte that stains. I love this shade!
SALON ROUGE is a clean berry red matte. Very similar shades include Roxo.
Again, another satin-matte, the shine subsides after 10-15 min wear, but it isn’t a true matte like the Retro Matte formula.
This is a really nice red, bordering on oxblood but not quite as deep. Definitely dupeable but still gorgeous.
SPARKS OF ROMANCE is a true red matte frost (and I honestly can’t think of any other MAC lipsticks in this finish)
The added frost is a subtle sparkle really (like a cross between frost and a dazzle lipstick). Fairly close in shade to Damn Glamorous.
Although the frost element is hard to see from far away, it gives this lipstick a +1 above all the other reds I have.
TRIBALIST is a deep purple berry amplified creme. This is a repromote made famous in the 2009 Style Warrior collection.
The formula isn’t totally opaque and does slip quite a bit making it hard to even out, but I really do love the shade.
Perfect dark berry lips for fall!
The final shade in the collection is a permanent one, Rebel. If you have been following my MAC Monday series, you probably already saw my review of this 2 weeks ago.
The MAC Cosmetics Heirloom collection is available online now and launches in stores tomorrow, along with the Keepsakes collection!
