Mac is Beauty: Lips

MAC is BeautyI am a huge fan of MAC Lustre lipsticks and I’m often bummed when their limited edition collections come out because the lipsticks are typically in the other finishes, lately matte finishes especially. When I saw the spring Mac is Beauty collection I was really excited because it included 8 Lustre lipsticks!

I was just in Toronto for work and visited the MAC store in the Eaton’s Centre and got to swatch them all. My favourite was Real Redhead. It is the perfect nude for fair skin!

Real Redhead is described as “mauve nude”,  an odd description. I would describe it more as a fleshy-peachy nude.  I’ve been looking for a shade like this that works on cool-toned, fair skin for ages. Usually this type of shade washes me out. But Real Redhead has some brownish, beigey undertones that make it work.

I think its the prettiest lipstick. If you like the lustre finishes, I’d really recommend you check out the limited edition MAC is Beauty collection. There are 7 other great shades.

Thanks for reading!

  1. This reminds me I have to check my local MAC counter to see if we’ve gotten any of the newer collections (we typically get them about a month or so later than US/Canada). I do enjoy Lustre finishes. 🙂

  2. MAC’s shade descriptions baffle me too. I don’t see any mauve in this.
    This colour is gorgeous! I don’t own any MAC Lustres – I’ll have to check them out!


  3. That is really pretty. I wonder if it would work for NC30…

    Lovely color. I don’t see that as being mauve either
