After grumbling recently about the lack of opportunity to purchase MAC beauty products due to the poor customer service I received the last time I ventured near a MAC beauty counter, the MAC make-up gods blessed me with this trio of products from the new limited edition RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection which is available for purchase in Australia tomorrow!
Here’s a closer look at the products…
RiRi Hearts MAC Fall : Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo
I’m not going to lie… but the Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo had me at “Hello!”
The rose gold metallic packaging is unique to my ENTIRE make-up collection (and we all know I have a BIG stash right?!) and then when you open it, you get this…
You should know by now that I go gaga over any embossed design on powders or blushers (my favourite is still the Hello Kitty powder!) and the embossed RiRi signature gets a tick of approval from me.
So it’s one third cool coral blusher and two thirds matte neutral bronzer – personally, I use more blusher than bronzer so I would have preferred it to be the other way around – but I have a thriving stash of blushers yet to be used (my latest acquisition is Chanel Revelation Creme De Blush) so I’m not too fussed.
The colours were quite sheer and needed a bit of double-dipping with the make-up brush to make it stand out on my skin.
Apologies for the lack of swatches at time of posting but the photos didn’t turn out too good – Melbourne has seriously got some weird weather at the mo’ which messes up my photography. Will update post when I have better swatches.
RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo – RRP $45 AUD – is definitely worth stalking and swatching at your local MAC counter.
RiRi Hearts MAC Fall : Who’s That Chick Lipstick
If you’re looking for a mid-tone frosty orange lipstick, allow me to point you in the direction of Who’s That Chick Lipstick, encased in the rose gold metallic packaging.
As for me, I can barely pull off orange lipsticks unless it has red undertones like this Missha one so to make this frosty orange wearable on me, I layer it with a red lip pencil base underneath or apply a sheer red gloss on top. Will have to show you photos of this at a later date (i.e. after I get rid of my upper lip facial hair )
The RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Lipsticks (RRP $38 AUD) also come in :-
- Nude – nude
- RiRi Woo – matte cool red
- Talk That Talk – matte dark plum
RiRi Hearts MAC Fall : Lash 35
At RRP $20 AUD, Lash 35 is the cheapest product in the RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection. I guess if you are a fan of Rihanna’s long luscious lashes, then it’s worth getting…but otherwise, there’s still more products in the collection including Eyeshadow, Veluxe Brow Liner, Lipglass, etc.
As I mentioned earlier, RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection is available on MAC counters tomorrow in Australia. I’m gonna stalk and swatch the Talk That Talk lippy because I love the dark plummy yummy lips on Rihanna…and hopefully, I will meet a nice MAC Sales Assistant, because frankly, that’s the only reason why I don’t have much MAC in my collection (except for a single eyeshadow, nail polish and a sheen lippy)
Are you planning to pick up anything from the RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection?
