  • MAC Talk that Talk Pro Longwear Lip Pencil is a matte dark purple lip pencil from the RiRi Hearts MAC Collection.

LIP GLOSS, MAC, Yishan | by — April 7, 2011

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipglass
Shade: Indigo Pink (Jeanius Collection 2011)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Indigo Pink is a limited edition shade described as a “deep burgundy with blue pearl”, the same as Riveting Rose lipstick which I swatched yesterday.
  • It can be worn as a finishing gloss on burgundy lipstick, but I love it just as much on its own as the blue tones make it look kind of berry when blended with my pink lip tone.  
  • Slight tendency to sink into lip lines but not noticeable if you apply a moderate amount.
  • Verdict: If the idea of an intense burgundy lipstick sounds all too much, try lining lips with a plum lip liner and finish off with this lipgloss instead.   Guaranteed to get you in the mood for autumn/winter.

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick (Frost)
Shade: Riveting Rose (Jeanius Collection 2011)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Riveting Rose is described as a “deep burgundy with blue pearl” and is a limited edition shade from the latest Jeanius Collection.
  • Despite the Frost finish, this didn’t look that frosty on me, possibly because I spent more time blending it into the lip surface.
  • Verdict: If you love a dark burgundy lip, I highly recommend this one as it’s not everyday you come across a burgundy shade with an illuminating finish.  Also it much lower maintenance than other burgundy lipsticks which often sink into lip lines.

 The blue pearl finish doesn’t limit this to pink skin tones. I actually find the contrasts against warm skin tone more eye catching.
