My first bit of mac...


Mac lipstick in Ri ri Woo - £16.50



If you're a long term reader of my blog or you know me in any way, shape or form, you will know I'm obsessed with red lipstick. I have way too many, but that doesn't stop me from buying more and more. Some people and addicted to cocaine, I'm addicted to buying red lipstick... I don't have a mac counter near me, so when I was near one I took advantage of the situation and bought my first little bit of mac. It seemed fitting that my first purchase should be a red lippie.

I've fallen for the mac lipstick formula and can see the hype. They're really long lasting and this dries to a completely mac finish, without drying my lips out or looking cakey. It lasts maybe 4 hours (even while eating and drinking) without topping up. I love the rose gold packaging that they're re branded the Rihanna collection in. 

Conclusion: Perfect deep red for winter, long lasting, matte formula and worth every penny.

What was your first MAC purchase and have you bought anything from the Rihanna collection?

  16. Once you go MAC, you can't go back, thats my motto at least, lol. I love the quality of their makeup. I only ever used concealers, eye shadow and foundation from their range but I have got to get a few lipsticks, this one sounds great! It was really great hearing your opinion on my last post.
