Leave a comment

Once the craziness of the holiday season wears off, and spring season is up and running, I get the time I need to look at all the big makeup sets I scored during the holidays. While the holidays are still going, Iโ€™m too focused on limited editions to look through all the shades in the sets, you know ๐Ÿ™‚ But here we are, finally, and here are 12 shades from MAC permanent lip colour range. That is, you can actually get any of the shades you like easily ๐Ÿ™‚


The shades Iโ€™m looking at here are: Party Commencing (Matte), Little Darling (Matte), Please Me (Matte), Mangrove (Matte), Ruby Woo (Matte), Rebel (Satin), Flat Out Fab (Matte), Good Kisser (Matte), Diva (Matte), Velvet Teddy (Matte), Whirl (Matte), Stone (Matte)




Party Commencing.


The texture is matt.


The shade is a lighter lilac pink. Very light. Very catwalk/movie shoot/photo shoot friendly nude. Not universally becoming though. If you like it, make sure it works for YOU.




Little Darling.


The texture is matt.


A medium coral shade. I don’t generally love corals, but this one is oh so nice. Elegant. Appealing. Pretty. A wonderful colour. My little darling ๐Ÿ™‚




Please Me.


The texture is matt.


This is a very pretty medium pink with a purple undertone. Or a very pretty medium purple with a pink undertone, depending on your colour preception. Pleasing, yes.






The texture is matt.


This is a blazing hot coral, borderline red, in fact, but not quite. Boy, what a vibrant colour. Amazing. I have very tender feelings for corals here. Surprising ๐Ÿ™‚




Ruby Woo.


The texture is matt.


Now, this is definitely red. No doubt. It’s a red classic. Vampy. Hot. Womanly. All those things. Deep and intense and everything. Wow.






The texture is โ€“ attention โ€“ SATIN. It’s the only one in the dozen, that’s satin.


Plum as plum can be. With sort of a modern twist to it. Sultry. No less sultry than plum classic. This shade is a statement. For sure.




Flat Out Fab. Love this shade name.


The texture is matt.


You know, that ultraviolet is the shade of the season, right? Well, this here is ultraviolet with a good deal of pink mixed into it, that warms it up, sort of. If you got any outfits in ultraviolet, this shade would go well with those ๐Ÿ™‚




Good Kisser. Love this shade name too ๐Ÿ™‚


The texture is matt.


There’s something about matt pinks on the lips. I’m telling you ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone is so distracted by matt reds and matt nudes, matt pinks get overlooked in a way. And it’s a pity. This shade is awesome. Love it. Wanna wear it. Am gonna ๐Ÿ™‚






The texture is matt.


This shade looks brown, at first sight. But once I apply it, it reveals its gorgeous Bordeaux secret essence ๐Ÿ™‚ What a beauty of a shade. Steaming hot.




Velvet Teddy. How cute is this shade name?


The texture is matt.


This lighter to medium beige is as comfy and nice and pleasing as a teddy bear. True ๐Ÿ™‚ There might be a pink touch of an undertone lingering somewhere there too.






The texture is matt.


Whirl. Cool. Sounds nice. The shade is a medium beige. I expected it to be more greige by the way it looked in the tube. But there’s a warm feeling about it. And it’s almost universally becoming. Like it a lot.






The texture is matt.


Now, this one is definitely greige. Ever so greige. Stone, yes, that’s what they call greige in clothes, more or less ๐Ÿ™‚ That is, it’s rare, the kind of shade that can make your look. Be careful though, it’s not universally becoming, so be sure to make it work for you. You’ll probably have to work with your whole look and build this lip shade in.


Thatโ€™s my dozen by MAC. I enjoyed it a lot. Some real finds in it, Iโ€™d say. And given how big matt texture is right now, itโ€™s nice to have options. All shades feel quite good on the lips. Thereโ€™s a pretty strong sweet scent to all of them. Now, letโ€™s go and have some fun with these colours, shall we? ๐Ÿ™‚
