If the Characters From The Walking Dead Were MAC Lipsticks…

Welcome to Terminus!

Welcome to Terminus!

Four more days and zombie-filled nights until The Walking Dead season 4 finale, whoop-whoop!

We’ll see if I get any sleep…


I’m having another bout of insomnia, which, on the one hand, is a pain because — hello, dark circles! — but on the other hand, it’s kind of rad, because I’m usually up at the witching hour pondering pressing questions of great importance like, “If the characters from The Walking Dead were MAC Lipsticks, which ones would they be?”

Here are my picks for my favorite characters on the show. ๐Ÿ™‚

Daryl Dixon — Lady Danger, a reddish coral

Daryl DixonI seriously cannot imagine Daryl’s character being anything other than this edgy reddish coral. Like Lady Danger, he may keep you at arm’s length (the distance of a crossbow bolt perhaps?) until he gets to know you better.

But stick around, because once he lets you into his life, he’ll always have your back.

Also like Daryl, dressed up or dressed down, Lady Danger always looks hot. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rick Grimes — Crosswires, an orangey pink

Rick GrimesI think of Rick as the everyman character, an ordinary guy thrust into extraordinary circumstances.

For a long time, he serves as the group’s de-facto leader, shouldering the burden of keeping everyone alive and making the tough decisions.

I definitely see him as Crosswires.

Rick’s a survivor, a man who tries to do the right thing, even when the right thing isn’t always clear.

Glenn Rhee — Brave Red, a warmish red

Glenn RheeQuiet, and yet a thousand times stronger than he appears, Glenn is unrelentingly kind and nice. I think he would be an amazing friend (both in the zombie apocalypse world and here), and he would never leave you behind.

Glenn is MAC Brave Red. Unassuming, never overbearing and always guided by hope, even in such a cray-cray world.

When the sh*t hits the fan, you can count on him to do the right thing.

Maggie Greene — Moxie, a bluish pink

MAC Moxie Lipstick

Moxie Lipstick

Maggie GreeneI think Maggie would also be a great friend. In my mind, Maggie Greene and I are BFFs. Like her hubby Glenn, she’s compassionate and kind. At the same time, she’s also very opinionated and tough as nails.

Girl can take down some walkers, let me tell you!

Maggie, meet Moxie. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, I know! — it’s not permanent. But it does pop up in limited edition collections from time to time (most recently in MAC Antonio Lopez).

For something similar you could wear now, try MAC’s Girl About Town or Impassioned.

Michonne — Violetta, a bright violet purple

MichonneWarrior. Mother. Katana expert. All around bad-a$$ mofo.


I think Violetta fits her perfectly.

As we’ve seen in season 4, Michonne has LAYERS, man. She may not be all warm and fuzzy the first time you meet her — odds are she’ll barely utter a word to you for weeks — but give it time, my friend, give it time.

Once you’re in with Michonne, you’ll have a powerful ally and a true friend for life.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    This is such a fun entry! I’m a little behind on the Walking Dead (but I won’t yell if it’s accidentally spoiled, it’s my own fault!).

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Chelsea! These are the things that keep me up at night, LOL!

      How’s it going? Today was one of those days that zipped by for me. Not that I’m complaining!

      • Chelsea says:

        It was a good day! I got frozen yogurt as an after work treat, so that was really good. Trying to get some laundry done, think I’m going to do some yoga and take a bath and maybe go to bed early!

        • Karen says:

          Nice. What flavor did you get and were there toppings involved? I kind of want fro yo for dinner now. I had some the other day — salted caramel pretzel with Oreo cookies on top. OMG. So good!

          • Chelsea says:

            Sorry for the late reply! Busy week! I had brownie batter and red velvet cake flavors with sprinkles! Yum!

  2. Natalie says:

    This is such a cool post! I love all the colors you chose.

  3. Katie says:

    Oh my gosh, Karen, stop it with these Walking Dead posts, ha! I’m really sad the season’s ending.

    The Michonne choice is great – I thought of MAC Heroine first, but that’s pretty similar to MAC Violetta. And Carol’s definitely MAC Rebel: dark, kick*ss, not taking the easy way out. It’s amazing how much her character has grown!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katie,

      Me too. I’m excited about the finale but am also very anxious about it too! I’m sure there will be a cliff hanger or FIVE. All I have to say is if Daryl dies (and you never know with this show) I will freak out.

      Funny that you mention Heroine…I was *this close* to picking it for Michonne. I ended up going with Violetta because there’s also a sweetness to it. And Michonne definitely has her sweet moments.

      Will you be attended the Twitter party on Sunday with me? Please say yes!

    Seeing the way Crosswires looks on the lips here makes me want to buy it! I love my coral MAC Hibiscus, but I think this would be a more everyday way to wear a coral lip ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t watch Walking Dead but this is such a fun post. I love all the lipsticks you picked.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Agata!

      You should. It is an excellent show. This season (season 4) has been exceptional! Hands down some of the best TV I’ve ever watched.

      What are you watching these days? Are you watching The Voice? I watched one or two of the blind auditions but haven’t really gotten into it this season.

  6. This is by far one of the most clever blog posts I’ve seen all week. I love it! I love your choices — very appropriate. Darryl and Lady Danger are personally two favourites of mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m now dying (no pun intended) to get my hands on Moxie.

  7. What a fun post Karen! I haven’t seen the show since last season for some reason, have to watch it now!

    I don’t usually like gore and zombie “stuff” but I agree that the show is amazing! Saw the first three seasons on Netflix and then season 4 every. single. Sunday. (That it’s been on that is)

  14. Majick says:

    I have never watched the show either but after seeing this post? I’ll probably tape the marathon and try to watch before the finale. Oh and pick up Brave Red. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really enjoy your writing style and relate to SO MUCH that you have to say, crazy cat stuff especially. LOL

    THanks for your entertaining and informational blog – it’s really GREAT!

    • Majick says:

      p.s. I don’t “tweet” so sorry I can’t join the party. Maybe one day I’ll figure it all out but for now I’m glad I have the time to check out your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Sylirael says:

    This is an awesome idea for a post, Karen! You’ve inspired me (not about the Walking Dead, cos I haven’t seen it *gasp!*, but about something else).

    Crosswires is especially gorgeous on you, I think!

    Late night lipstick photo shopping and came across this. You are SO awesome for this! ๐Ÿ˜€

  19. monibackincali says:

    you are seriously TOO funny! I love your sense of humor and the fact that you love TWD makes you even that much more awesome!

    PS – thank you for swatching permanent colors so we can shop those too! Violetta looks amazing on you…… (i may have ordered online just now…. naturally, I blame you!)


  20. monibackincali says:

    To the ladies that missed Moxie…. in my opinion….. the MAC retro All Fired Up is a close dupe (not a twin, but a sister)
