Lip Look: Resolutely Red Lipstick from the Upcoming MAC in High Def Collection

Published in: MAC Makeup


It never hurts to be prepared, whether in life OR in makeup, I always say. If/when an occasion ever demands a glossy, brick red lip with HELLA gold glitter, MAC’s totally got us covered.


For my lip look today I layered Lustre Lipstick in Resolute Red, a creamy brick red from the upcoming MAC in High Def collection (more on that in a few), on top of Cremestick Liner in Red Enriched.

And to really make it scream par-TAY, I added a mixture of Clear Lipglass and Gold Glitter.

Designed with uber-detailed HDTV in mind, the MAC in High Def collection repromotes several standout items from MAC’s permanent line (Mineralize Skinfinish/Naturals, Face and Body Foundations, and the 188 and 187 brushes) and introduces four new lipstick colors — Close to Real (a light neutral pink), High Def (a neutral coral), Sharp Focus (a deep brownish plum) and Resolutely Red (a creamy brick red). It comes in for a landing on counters September 10.

It’s a shame the only partying I’ll be doing today is in my living room!


The guest list includes me, Tabs, four loads of laundry and Season Four of Sex and the City. ๐Ÿ™‚


Le sigh, I am and always will be TEAM AIDEN…

    What a super-fun lip to wear! That kind of thing always makes me long for the holiday season when it’s easier to get away with more glam makeup looks (at least, easier on my own comfort level)! Resolutely Red is definitely calling to me to try it on when it appears!

  2. shontay says:

    This lipstick is sooo mine when it hits stores. I have a serious addiction to red lipstick.

  3. Lina says:

    That looks gorgeous. I am too scared to try reds though. Maybe one day I will.

    That is the perfect red for us warm types. Yay! I’m so getting this one. I used to shy away from red lips but I’ve since gotten over it so I’m super excited about this lipstick!

  7. Sara says:

    A gorgeous red, Karen! It’s absolutely beautiful on your warm skin.

    Ha ha, today is brush washing day. I meant to do it after I walked Zena but I’ve been sidetracked, obviously. I’ll have to do it after my dinner comes and I eat it.

    Ha ha, I’m going to watch It’s Me or the Dog at 8PM my time (it’s 7:20 here). I’m currently watching In the Doghouse and I’m completely appalled by this show as he’s a traditional training method trainer and he just took away all of the shi tsus’ toys!!!! I could never do that to Zena. I love positive reinforcement training. She’s more eager to learn and loves training using the positive method over the traditional method. He’s turning these pets into slaves for their masters! It’s cruel to watch him train these dogs! I would never ever let this guy 100 miles of my home and Zena! I feel like crying for those poor dogs.

    Wow, that looks amazing on you!

  13. AndreaMarie says:

    Beautiful color, and thanks for showing us another way to wear it!

  14. Lehea says:

    Haven’t tapped into MAC for months now. I really like that red lipstick. Guess that’s my cue to come back!

  15. Hyzenthlay says:

    YESSS!!!!!!! I have ALWAYS liked Aiden more! I am so happy you said that ๐Ÿ™‚ I think he was better for Carrie than Big is . . . And I loved his proposal, too, just out for a walk with the dog ๐Ÿ™‚ *sigh*

    The red lips look amazing on you. I’d love to find THE red lipstick, and I’ve tried at drugstores, but they never work . . . I’m just going to go to a counter and have them help me soon, I think.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Hyzenthlay,

      That’s a good idea. There’s a ton of different reds at MAC — I’m sure they’ll be able to help you find the perfect one for you!

  16. Marce says:

    Niiiceee! I really like how you pull off this red, it looks great on you! And I love how creative the combo is, we usually forget the multiple uses of pigments and glitter, hey? Kudos! ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Tami says:

    Hey Karen,

    I’m not really a lipstick person. Although I own a few, most of my lip collection are glosses. However I drew in a quick breath when I saw this color. IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! I MUST HAVE IT LOL!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tami,

      Ya know, I wasn’t one until about two years ago — I was traumatized by the 90s, when it was all about lipstick and no gloss could be found within miles! I guess enough time had passed for the nostalgia to kick in.

      Do you have Red Enriched liner? This color looks good grrrreat with it layered beneath.

    omg i was just thinking the same thing this morning…team adien all the way!

  26. Tami says:

    Hey Karen,

    I don’t have the liner but I will more than likely get it with the lipstick, That is one combo that can’t be broken up:-)

  27. Marisol says:

    Team Big here! I guess I always like the bad boy. Although Aiden was my second fave. I disliked the Russian Aleksander & Berger.

    I need to find a good red lippie but every time I have tried one, I feel like it doesn’t look good on me. The closest I have come a true red lippie is MAC’s O.

  28. Stephie says:

    Brilliant combo Karen. The Gold glitter is such a beautiful touch. I thought the first pic was just one lipgloss, I was ready to hop out of bed and pick it up. I like that red, is it moisturizing?

    Btw, Team BIG <3, ๐Ÿ˜›
