Bold lip lovers say what?! In your dreams, are your lips ever super saturated shades of red, pink or purple?
Heck, even if they aren’t, draw a big red Sharpie heart around September 12 on your calendar (or ask Siri to remind you), because that’s when the MAC Antonio Lopez collection lip palettes arrive.
I’m pretty stoked about two of ’em — 3 Lips/Fuchsia and 3 Lips/Red. At least for me and my bold lip-lurving heart, they steal the limelight away from the 3 Lips/Nude palette.
If you like powerful pouts, watch out for 3 Lips/Fuchsia and 3 Lips/Red. Their smooth, super saturated colors do NOT mess around. Both palettes get mad love from me.
As for the Nude palette…
The Nude one just isn’t doin’ it for me. Its two matte pastels and sheer shimmer aren’t proving easy to tame.
The pastels latch onto my every lip flake like MMA fighters latch onto limbs, and they tend to apply unevenly (and are even chalky).
I dig the packaging, and the sheer shimmer looks pretty, but — I don’t know — they’re not enough to carry this particular lip palette for me.
The other two, though? WOW! I hope you don’t skip the brights without taking a closer look.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Guess what…? We just passed the hump! Booya!
P.P.S. Tease me if you want, but I just started watching 24 on Netflix. Yup, I’d never even seen one episode before this week. I think I’m about — I don’t know — 13 years late?
Dang, babe, that Jack Bauer is having a baaaad day so far. He could really use some meow time.
