Oh, yeah, it’s about to get sudsy in here!!
Wait — what do you mean you don’t have any quarters?
None?? Not even one quarter…?
Who shows up to a laundromat without any quarters?
LOL! I’m just kidding. 🙂 That’s alright. I brought enough quarters for both of us. Have a seat here next to me, and we’ll contemplate the four lipsticks from the new MAC Wash and Dry collection while we wait for our laundry to finish.
Steam Heat: This vivid yellowish red hangs tough from the moment you put it on until the end of the final rinse cycle. And shoot, it doesn’t stop there. In other words, it lasts a really long time — like six, or maybe even seven hours, but that’s only if you can manage to resist that bag of Trader Joe’s cheese puffs in the closet, which is to say that it doesn’t last through meals.
I swear…whenever I open one of those bags of cheese puffs, it is physically impossible to NOT eat at least half the bag in one sitting.
But I digress…
Tumble Dry: Almost better than that moment when you realize that your last load of laundry is done, hurray! This warm-toned light peachy coral nude with soft shimmer is very easy to wear and moisturizing. Sheer enough to allow my natural lip color to peek through, it still packs enough pigment to make an impression.
It’s a perfect summery shade.
Morange: Sturdier than a collar with extra starch (translation: lasts a hella long time; we’re talking seven hours), this vivid warm orange looks extra crisp on medium and deep skin tones.
The finish falls somewhere between matte and satin, so in laundry terms, I’d compare it to pricey, plush dry clean-only silk.
It’s a re-promote from the permanent collection, by the by, so if you absolutely, positively must have it before your next load of delicates is done, it’s available at MAC counters now (in MAC basic black packaging).
Creme d’Nude: This one is also a re-promote available now in the permanent collection, and like that guy who ran next to me at the Bay to Breakers a few years back, it’s really, REALLY nude. If you like the look of blanked-out pale pink lips, this could be your next jam.
It’s a light pinkish beige with shimmer. Building it up in layers gets it close to full opacity, or sheer it out by dabbing it lightly on your lips.
The limited edition Wash and Dry collection lipsticks, part of the new MAC Wash and Dry collection, arrive May 14 to the MAC website, and May 21 to MAC counters and stores.
