MAC Bad Girl RiRi Lipstick
MAC RiRi Hearts MAC Lipsticks

MAC Bad Girl RiRi Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte taupey nude [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the consistency was just lightly creamy–enough that it didn’t tug or pull at the lips much but still left a matte finish behind.  It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. It’s nothing like Nude from the fall collection. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude (P, $24.00) is glossier. MAC Spice (LE, $15.00) is not quite as warm-toned and has a sheen but is still very similar. MAC Shanghai Spice (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less matte. MAC Double Shot (P, $15.00) is browner, less matte. MAC Brick-o-la (P, $15.00) is pinker. Guerlain Avarice (P, $49.50) is similar. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is lighter just a smidgen. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude (P, $24.00) is browner, less matte. See comparison swatches.

MAC Pleasure Bomb Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte fuchsia [with a Matte finish].” It’s a vibrant, brightened fuchsia with some red and cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had extremely good pigmentation, and it gave full color coverage when applied. The consistency was, again, creamy enough so it didn’t drag much on lips (just a tiny bit) and left behind a matte finish from the get-go. This shade will basically last until you remove it–it’s very, very long-wearing but it starts to get a bit drying after six hours of wear.  Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $49.50) is warmer, redder. MAC All Fired Up (P, $15.00) is redder. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is less matte. MAC Moxie (LE, $15.00) is a smidgen more fuchsia. MAC Lickable (P, $15.00) is less matte. MAC Impassioned (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Girl About Town (P, $15.00) is a touch bluer-based, less matte. Guerlain Gigi (P, $49.50) is less matte. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is less matte. See comparison swatches.

The MAC x RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection launches in December. The collection also repromotes RiRi Woo (review here).  I don’t have a specific date yet, and as soon as I do, you’ll see me update the collection’s official information post. Your best bet is to catch me on Twitter or Facebook, as I usually make a mention on social media first :)
