You don’t need 50 shades of grey, all you need…
The MAC x Robert Lee Morris collection brings back one of my beloved lipstick formulas, the Mattene. This semi-matte slimline lipstick is creamy, rich and extremely pigmented.
“Timeless yet astonishingly contemporary – Robert Lee Morris crafts fine jewellery that eludes categorization, existing at the boundaries between fashion and sculpture. Now, he adapts his sensuously organic style for a limited-edition collection for M∙A∙C, featuring a lineup of well-loved products reimagined and resculpted with golden and matte black packaging.”
There are six shades in this collection and, thanks to MAC PR, I was lucky enough to receive all of them. *happy dance*
Concord Grape – dirty cool mauve
Fig – deepened reddened rose
Lychee – soft nude pink
Persimmon – warm peach nude
Pomegranate – deep cranberry
Pumpkin – warm pink
Concord Grape is described as a dirty cool mauve. It has a bit of a sheen/shimmer to it and is probably my fave shade out of the 6.
Lychee is described as a soft nude pink and is probably the only shade I really didn’t like. It’s definitely too pale for my skintone and was a bit patchy and dry.
Persimmon is described as a warm peach nude. I didn’t really think I’d like this shade as it leans quite warm but…
It matches my eye look and blush (Robert Lee Morris blush in Linda) so well, I fell in love with it instantly.
Pomegranate is described as a deep cranberry and will probably be my go-to shade for the holidays.
Pumpkin is described as a warm pink. I was honestly expecting a deep orange before I opened the tube.
These Mattene lipsticks are $29 CAD/$25 USD. The MAC x Robert Lee Morris collection launches at select MAC stores and online November 2.
