The Scarlet Season: MAC Dubonnet Lipstick

MAC Dubonnet Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, deep shade of red with more of a brownish tone. It’s not really a blue-based red, nor an orange-based red–it’s truly one of those shades that works well on many skin tones. (Kind of like MAC’s Viva Glam I Lipstick!) It has a redder, richer look than VGI, plus it has the glossy sheen (though no shimmer). It applies opaque in just one layer, and it clings to lips without being drying. It holds up and wears for a good four or five hours and afterward, it does leave a slight stain behind. Definitely one of MAC’s must-haves!

World AIDS Day 2009

World AIDS Day 2009

Today is World AIDS Day. It is a day dedicated to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS, but it also remembers the people who have lost their lives to the spread of this pandemic. This year’s theme of the campaign is Respect and Protect. Learn more about the campaign, as well as HIV/AIDS at http://www.worldaidsday.org.

In support of the effort, some beauty brands have joined in to raise awareness and support the cause…

  • Kiehl’s will doante 100% of net profits from each sale of Hand Care for a Cure, which is a limited edition version of its Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, to stemming the loss of life from HIV/AIDS. Kiehl’s has been committed to raising awareness of HIV/AIDS since 1996, and this year they’ve partnered with amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research.
  • MAC Cosmetics is supporting World AIDS Day with a company-wide effort volunteer initiative. Hundreds of MAC artists from New York will be spending their time and sharing their skills with God’s Love We Deliver Facilities dedicated to improving those residents affected by HIV/AIDS. The New York City store will have a special one-day in-store promotion where 100% of sales for all Viva Glam Lipsticks and Lipglasses will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the MAC AIDS Fund. MAC has a year-round HIV/AIDS awareness initiative with their Viva Glam product line-up. 100% of all sales of Viva Glam Lipsticks and Lipglasses go towards fighting HIV/AIDS. MAF has raised over $150 million through the sale of the VG line.
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics will be donating 100% of the selling price of their NSFW Nail Lacquer to National AIDS Education and Services for Minorities, Inc.

The Scarlet Season: MAC Rockocco Lipstick

MAC Rockocco Lipstick ($14.00) was a limited edition shade of fiery orange-based red with a creamy texture, semi-matte finish, and a subtle sheen. It’s definitely one of my favorite orange-based reds, and I love the way it clings to lips without drying them out. This is probably one of my top three red lipstick shades I wish MAC would repromote, because it really just has something extra about it that nothing in the permanent line brings to the table.

MAC Baroque Boudoir Collection: Lipgloss & Lipstick Lip Swatches

As promised, here are lip swatches for the new, limited edition lipglosses and lipsticks from MAC’s Baroque Boudoir Collection. My lip swatches are always done trying to use what the “reasonable” user would use — so I’m not in the business of spending ten minutes layering a lipstick on nor will I goop on gloss just to get it to show!
