MAC By Request

13 March, 2012

This is a collection that like many MAC addicts, I have been wanting to have happen. What MAC is doing is putting a thing up on their Facebook where you can vote on six vintage shades of eyeshadow, lipstick, and Lipglass. You can vote once per product category per day between now and the 30th of March-and in August, the three winners in each will be sold online. Simple as that, eh? I just wish there were a) not only better shades, but b) pigments, nail polishes, and so forth.

Anyways, in the category of lipsticks, we have:
Eden Rocks, from 2001’s collection of the same name. It’s a mauve-toned neutral frost, and in that collection it was apparently about one thing: the Jennifer Lopez bronzed glamour look. Eh…no thanks.
Moxie, from the Retro Mattes of 1999. Matte fuschia? Yes please. But Retro Matte? Even more appealing.
Rocker, from Time Rocker of 1999. Cherry red with glitter-this definitely screams 1999 if you know what I mean. (A lot of the lipsticks out in that day were WILD. Glitter, metallics-you name it.)
Candy Yum-Yum, from Quite Cute. This is the overwhelming favourite so far-I think because more people remember it. Anyways, it’s a horrendously bright fuschia matte. Needless to say, it gets my vote.
Shitaki, from 2001’s Cuisine. Taupe brown with shimmer=a colour more suited to walls than lips.
3N, from the N Collection. Hated that all, except for Light Flush MSF.

My picks: Moxie, Rocker, Candy Yum-Yum. Read the rest of this entry »
