Officially, this MAC matte lipstick is a warm pink, but on my lips it looks red, yet the name is Cordon Bleu, like the color blue.
We should just rename it something like, “When Colors Confusingly Collide.” 😂
I wore this lippy last week in one of the Charlotte Tilbury posts not realizing just how much it would steal the show. It’s one of the Matte Lip Mousse lipsticks from the MAC Pony Park collection, so it’s limited edition (I know), and while a lot of the items from that launch are sold out, Cordon Bleu is still available.
The Matte Lip Mousse lippies play on the blurry edged lip trend that’s happening right now, so they’re designed to draw a diffused edge that feathers out ever so slightly.
You don’t really have to do anything fancy to get the effect either — just apply it with the doefoot directly onto your lips. Don’t worry, it won’t travel outside your natural lip line, so you won’t end up looking like the accidental Joker.
Cordon Bleu’s lightweight mousse formula stays put, feels comfy, and best of all, doesn’t dry out lips. It also tastes and smells like MAC’s signature vanilla, which I love. If you’re a fan of MAC Relentlessly Red Lipstick, I think you’ll like this color, too, because it has similar warm coral undertones.
Still here at my parents’ house in the East Bay. No word yet as to when the power will be back up for good for the entire county, but supposedly it’ll be sometime today… I’m hoping that’ll happen, but I’m not banking on it. I’ve heard there’s also a chance the power will shut off again tonight, and so if that’s the case, I’ll be back here in my childhood backyard eating persimmons, deep breathing and trying to go with the flow until the end of the week.
