Yeah, you might think the red patent bag looks a bit cheesy — it’s more dominatrix than happy holidays — but if you can overlook that, then this lip set is totes worth your attention.
What You Get: Pink-a-licious Goodness
- To Swoon For: A creamy mauve pink lipstick in the MAC Glaze finish — thin and light on the lips and delivers light to medium coverage. Expect a natural pink lip flush.
- Romancin’: A creamy magenta lipstick in the MAC Lustre finish. With medium coverage and a slightly thicker feel on the lips than the Glaze finish, Romancin’ reminds me of a perfect pink rose petal.
- Delicate Crush Lipglass: A shimmery cool mauve pink. Delicate Crush was my least favorite of the three products in the set. By itself it looks milky and kinda sickly on my pucker; I think pairing it with a pink liner like MAC Pink Treat Cremestick Liner would make it much more wearable.

If only the Lipglass were a different shade of pink (I could always do with another tube of Nymphette), this set would score a home run. Instead, it’s a solid double play, and the two lipsticks make worthy additions to my pink lipstick team!
Yesterday ’twas a beautiful fall day here in the SF Bay Area. It reached about 80 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, so I went for a run. The fact that winter’s around the corner made it a melancholy jog, but we takes what we can get.
I had the house to myself last night because El Hub volunteered to play a zombie in our community’s local haunted house. He had to do his own zombie makeup… but he said he learned a thing or two listening to me talk about makeup over the years. He went for a smokey zombie eye, LOL!
I stayed home to have a few hours to myself for makeup playtime and reality TV, ya know?
Hope you had a fantastic Saturday! Got any plans for today?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Day 4: still no Tabs…
