MAC Media Lipstick

MAC Media Lipstick

The Sultry Season: MAC Media Lipstick

MAC Media Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, dark red wine.  This is a shade that also works particularly well as a lip stain–just layer a little on, blot, and then dab a touch of clear gloss on top and voila.   For a satin finish, Media is very… lustre-like.  It has that slicker feel of a lustre finish lipstick, but it also has the look of one.  I do find that Media settles into my lip lines more than I’d like, though.

Is this the right wine for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.

MAC Odyssey Lipstick

MAC Odyssey Lipstick

The Sultry Season: MAC Odyssey Lipstick

MAC Odyssey Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is an opaque, berry-wine with a frost finish.  Odyssey is definitely a staple MAC shade for me–it’s perfect for the fall and winter, but it’s not too dark.  It’s a great choice for someone who doesn’t quite want to go ultra dark but still wants something with more depth than a milky pink, too.  It works well on both cool and warm skin tones, and it’s not overly frosty either.   During the holidays, you can add a little gold or red lipgloss to make it more festive.

MAC Film Noir Lipstick

MAC Film Noir Lipstick

The Sultry Season: MAC Film Noir Lipstick

MAC Film Noir Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, reddened brown–very dark, very vampy.  It doesn’t go black on me, but it is incredibly dark.  On me, the red tones help keep it from being too much of a contrast against my warmer skin tone and potentially washing me out.  This is a shade that longs to be the star of a look–just pair it with a little eyeliner, mascara, and a contoured cheek.

MAC Rebel Lipstick

The Sultry Season: MAC Rebel Lipstick

MAC Rebel Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, fuchsia berry with a glossy finish and very subtle, nearly imperceptible shimmer.  It’s almost opaque (you can just barely see my freckle peeking through), but it applies easily, smoothly, and is a great shade to brighten up your skin tone.  It’s bold without being too dark or vampy–but still not a red, not a fuchsia.

MAC Venomous Villains Reviews & Swatches

MAC Venomous Villains

MAC Venomous Villains Collection for Disney

U.S. Launch Date: September 30th, 2010 (online as early as 9/27)
International Launch Date: October 2010

A potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast… Bad never looked so good. A crystal ball of colour created from our favourite Disney Venomous Villains, inspired by the three most infamously frosty, fabulous and formidable of Disney’s dark ladies… and one dastardly Dr. Facilier. Don’t you love it?

A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella De Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen are dazzlingly devilish; Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s DR. FACILIER, both up to no good on their own. Uniquely designed iconic packaging you will kill for, cunning characters and bedeviled beauties that are so alluring, you can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be one!
