“Psst! Look at that girl.”

“Which girl…?”


“That one!”

“Which one? That one right there?”

“Yeah, that one you’re rudely pointing at in broad daylight right there, LOL! The one wearing the dark matte lipstick.”

“Yeah, I see her… She’s nasty.”

“What!? What are you talking about, ‘she’s nasty’? That’s a terrible thing to say!”

“No, doofus. Not like that. I mean she is literally a nasty gal.”

“You lost me…”

“I mean she’s wearing one of the three lipsticks in the new MAC Nasty Gal collection.”

Another fab collab, this one between MAC and Nasty Gal owner/founder Sophia Amoruso, the four-piece MAC Nasty Gal collection is coming to select MAC stores and the MAC website December 4 (through January 1, 2015) with three lipsticks in Stunner (a matte red), Runner (a matte burgundy) and Gunner (a deep matte purple) for $16 US/$19 CAD, as well as a true red Studio Nail Lacquer with a creme finish called Flaming Rose ($12 US/$14 CAD; not shown in this post).

“Yeah, being a nasty gal is good now if you like your lipsticks dark, matte and severe.”


“I think it’s supposed to be (air quotes) ‘edgy,’ or something.”

“Oh…then I want to be a nasty girl.”

“Um, hello, Vanity 6! It’s ‘nasty gal,’ not ‘nasty girl.’ Sometimes you’re so hella ’80s…”

“Haha, she’s got jokes. But no, really, do you think I could pull that off?”

“Yeah, I think you could if you had absolutely no traces of a bad dry lip sitch, because those lipsticks are dark, capital D-A-R-K, and they don’t leave any room for imperfections. They’re totally unforgiving, especially the burgundy shade (Runner) and the dark purple (Gunner). My flakes were front and center when I tried ’em, but the red shade (Stunner) was better.”

Runner, and flakes like WHOA!

“Ooh! OK…I’m gonna get nasty with the red then.”


“Yeah, get nasty with the red.”

“Nasty!” 🙂

“Stop, ya perv.”

      Bonus points for getting the Vanity 6 ref, LOL. Funny thing is I was in elementary school when I listened to their music, OMG! I had no idea what they were singing. My friends and I even did a choreographed dance to “Sex Shooter.” HAHA!

  2. Fancie says:

    I just knew I was skipping this collection but now I think I want Runner and Gunner. Runner does look patchy but I really like that color!

    Ooh I kinda like Gunner! I was thinking it would be too similar to smoked purple though… Which I have lol I need to stop hoarding all these MAC lipsticks!

  4. thepaigest says:

    You’re the funniest I love ya! OMG I need all of them STAT! The wait is over!!!!!

  5. Martha Nelson says:

    …I’m a sex shooter shootin love in your direction… LOL!! I really like gunner. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow, same for Tabs

    • Karen says:

      LOL, Martha. I still remember making up dance moves to that song with my friends. Never mind that we were 8, OMG! I liked Vanity 6 but really wanted to be either Wendy or Lisa. They seemed cooler.

      You have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too! Are you cooking this year?

  6. tulipthecat says:

    Oh gosh…now that song is stuck in my head….I liked the swatch of runner but if it doesn’t like flakes then that won’t be working for me. Stunner is pretty tho…but really how many red lipsticks do I really need….

    • Karen says:

      You could do it if you prep the night before. Do a lip scrub then apply a moisturizing lip balm before you go to bed and then again first thing in the morning. I didn’t have time to do it and so the flakes were like OH HAI. lol

      The thing with red lipstick is you can ALWAYS wear it. It goes from season to season easily and it’s timeless. At least that’s what I keep telling myself when I start lusting after a new red!

  7. Elena says:

    Ooh I have been looking for a deep color like Runner. Tempting (even though I absolutely should not buy another lipstick for like 10 years given how large my stash is lol).

    Happy Thanksgiving Karen! Does Tabs get any leftover turkey? I know my dog will!

    • Karen says:

      Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Elena! Tabs will be getting a bowl full of gravy. YUP, just the gravy. Last year we gave him turkey and he completely ignored it and ate just the gravy.

      Will you be cooking tomorrow?

      • Elena says:

        I am going to my cousin’s house so they are doing the majority of the cooking! I did make a delicious Japanese Cheesecake today to bring over.

        It’s sitting in my fridge now and it looks so good I just want to eat it. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s cheesecake with meringue folded in so it makes the cheesecake very very light and fluffy!

        Last year I brought a bag of turkey home and I swear Atticus almost took my hand off trying to eat a piece. He is such a chow-hound. He loves food!

        I hope you have a very relaxing Thanksgiving!

        • Karen says:

          Oh your cheesecake sounds DELICIOUS! Does it have a traditional graham cracker crust? Great, now I’m hungry for cheesecake!

          We have a pecan pie in the fridge that I just might dig into tonight. We’ll see if my willpower holds. 🙂

          Aww, Atticus obviously has a flair for the finer things. He should get turkey every day. Yes, Tabs just made me type that.

          You have a relaxing Thanksgiving, too!

          • Elena says:

            Oh it is delicious! I don’t do a traditional crust with it. I like to think it is maybe a little healthier because it uses less cream cheese. haha. It’s a good justification.

            If I wasn’t bringing the cheesecake over for family…I would have eaten a slice by now!

            Atticus is very sophisticated. He eats a carrot every day and uses his paws to hold it up while he eats it. He’s a giant 130 pound bunny. haha.

            Give Tabs a pet for me!

  8. Erin says:

    Too bad about emphasizing flakes or imperfections cause these are great colors!

    Karen, I like Gunner on you. Just the lipstick by itself I thought….ewww…but it looks fab on you. I did not notice any flakes. I normally go for shades like Runner but ummm yeah NO! You are right Stunner does look good.. but consider Gunner too!

    Hugs from the Great Up North!

  10. Agata says:

    Is it bad I had to Google Nasty Gal not knowing what it was?

    Not really crazy about this collection. But Stunner looks stunning on you.

  13. Runner and Stunner are right up my alley, but the dry lips are a serious problem over here. It is very cold and windy at Ostsee at the moment.

  14. All three colors are definitely too bold for me, with maybe the expection of Stunner… maybe. Too bad the finish isn’t very nice.

  15. I have been waiting for this collection to become available in my country because I am lemming big time for Stunner. I’m glad that it’s more forgiving on dry lips because it’s the only one I want from the 3.
