Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Ruby Woo & Russian Red
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

      Katherine describes

Ruby Woo

      as a slightly brighter and cool toned red than

Russian Red

      which is a deeper rich neutral red.   Texture wise,

Ruby Woo

      is a retro-matte finish whilst

Russian Red

    is a normal matte finish.

  • The similaries and differences between MAC Ruby and Russian Red extend beyond first appearances.  Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post for her detailed comparison of Ruby Woo vs. Russian Red, including which of the two has an easier texture to apply!

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte finish)
Swatched by the lovely: Vesna

  • Vesna describes Flat Out Fabulous as a lovely bold matte darker fuchsia in a retro matte finish. Her experience was that it wears more comfortably than Heaux despite both belonging in the same lipstick finish range.
  • Read the rest of Vesna’s blog post (also available in English) to find out how well this lipstick lasted throughout the day, and also which other MAC lipstick shades come in the Retro Matte finishes.
  • Thanks Vesna for the lovely swatch!

MAC Eye Collection 1

It’s not everyday that I get excited about makeup sets these days, but MAC Cosmetic’s new Stroke of Midnight collection is ticking all my boxes with its black, gold & white colour theme and a wide variety of sets to choose from – eyes, lips, brushes etc.

The Eye Look Bag (Violetwas a welcome surprise in my mailbox and features the following:

Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag (Violet)

Frozen Violet Paint Pot frosted purple silver

In Extreme Dimension Lash black

Blacktrack Fluidline – solid flat black

209 Eyeliner / 239 Eye Shader double-ended brush

MAC Eye Collection 2

My favourite items in this set are the makeup bag, paint pot & dual ended brush.

MAC Eye Collection 3

MAC Eye Collection 4

The 239 eyeshadow brush is not as well made as the regular brush collection (not as tapered and a little scratchy to be honest) but it’s still a useful shader brush for switching eyeshadows.

MAC Eye Collection 5

The 209 Eyeliner brush however, is a lovely brush that gives the same thick liner precision that I get with felt tip eyeliners.

MAC Eye Collection 7

My favourite item of all is the MAC Prolongwear Paint Pot in “Frozen Violet”.  Despite the name, it’s a mushroom taupe with sparse shimmers that’s the VERY SHADE that’s I so badly needed.  I’ve been searching for a long lasting cream shadow to prep my lids to intensify taupe eyeshadow, and this is perfect for it.

MAC Eye Collection 8

Available at MAC Cosmetics counters in Australia from today

Grab a set for yourself or a loved one for Christmas!

RRP: $89 AUD

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shades: RiRi Boy & Heaux (RiRi Hearts MAC)
Swatched by the lovely: Vesna

  • RiRi Boy & Heaux come in a “retro matte” finish, launched as part of the RiRi Hearts MAC Collection.
  • Vesna describes the “retro matte” texture as matte yet glides nicely directly from the tube.
  • If you can read Croatian (or put it through Google Translate like I did), I recommend checking out Vesna’s blog post on which MAC lipstick is a dupe for RiRi Boy. As for a dupe for Heaux, check out Temptalia’s dupe report here.
  • Thanks Vesna for the lovely swatch! You’re the only beauty blogger I know that can pull off matte lipstick without needing any lip balm whatsoever!!
