New MAC Products

New MAC ProductsHey there! Like so many other beauty bloggers I am a massive fan of MAC lipsticks. The range of colours is outstanding and the formulation and lasting power is much talked about. Four new lip products from MAC have found their way into my makeup drawer (two in the last week) and I thought it might be nice to share them with you!

Ruby Woo and All Fired Up featured in last week’s January Favourites post. I mentioned they probably deserve a post of their own and the lovely Adele agreed so here it is! The other two shades are from the newly released MAC x Ellie Goulding collection and I just knew I had to get my hands on something from it! I think even if I wasn’t a fan of Ellie’s these shades would still be colours I’d go for. Pretty pink and peachy neutrals, yes please!

Swatches

MAC SwatchesLeft To Right: Without Your Love, Revved, All Fired Up and Ruby Woo.

1. Ruby Woo Lipstick

Ruby Woo is a classic red and a staple in many bloggers makeup bags. Before owning the shade I thought, “Do I need another red lipstick?” and I am so glad I convinced myself I did. Ruby Woo is a proper blue-toned red and doesn’t lean towards orange or lean towards wine-brick red tones. Ruby Woo does have a retro matte formula which can make it drying but if you apply a small amount of lip balm beforehand, it’s fine. Another huge plus is that Ruby Woo makes your teeth look whiter due to it’s blue-red tones, perfect for showcasing that killer smile! The colour will last you all day (or all night) and doesn’t transfer when you eat or drink.Β  If you’re looking for one holy grail red for your collection, I guarantee you this is it.

2. All Fired Up Lipstick

If you were to ask me what my perfect lipstick colour is, All Fired Up would just about be it. Fuschia is my absolute favourite shade to wear but this shade has the right amount of red to take it from an ordinary fuschia into something special. If I wanted to, I know I could wear this lipstick day in and day out and never get tired of it, that’s how beautiful the colour is. I feel like not enough people know about All Fired Up and if you swatch it you will see how beautiful it is. Again, this one has a retro matte formula but I find this slightly creamier than Ruby Woo. All Fired Up is the also the name of one of my favourite Saturdays’ songs so you can’t really go wrong!

3. Without Your Love Lipstick

Ellie Goulding’s MAC collection features two brand new lipstick shades named after two of her songs. I swatched both in-store and preferred the look of Without Your Love; a warm seashell pink. Not only is this colour beautiful and right up my street, the packaging and lipstick bullet itself is stunning. The rose gold and black packaging is right on trend and makes the collection stand out. I also love how Ellie’s logo is embossed into the bullet. Without Your Love has a cremesheen finish meaning it is infused with pearlised pigments and a moistursing serum blend. This shade would look particularly lovely on fair skin tones as it is such a light pink. I’m sure this would also look lovely layered up or with a darker pink gloss over the top.MAC Without Your Love Lip Swatch

4. Revved Patentpolish Lip Pencil

This is my first MAC product that’s not strictly a lipstick. MAC claim their patentpolish lip pencils offer the comfort of a balm, colour and sheen of a gloss and precision of a lip pencil. The two lip pencils in the collection are part of MAC’s permanent range. They have been re-promoted and given special packaging for this collection. Revved is a peach shade with shimmer and is really nice to apply, it’s creamy but not too creamy if that makes sense. I do think this lip pencil would need reapplication throughout the day as the colour had faded when I returned home from work. The good thing about this shade is that because it is neutral it’s not as noticeable when it fades as a matte or a bright colour. I don’t own any other lip pencils so it will be interesting to see how often I reach for this. I see myself wearing this shade a lot as it is perfect for everyday.MAC Revved Swatch

    I love the lipstick! I have a red one I’ve been currently using from Clinique but have been in need of a pink colour (as I think it goes with my skin tone better). Lovely! πŸ™‚

    YAY! Thanks for following up with this post, I was so desperate to see the swatches and they are AMAZING! I now feel like I need ALL of these lipsticks in my collection – though if I was to choose a fav, I’d lean towards Ruby Woo, just because I don’t think I’ve found that PERFECT red yet. An absolute staple! πŸ™‚
