The color itself is smooth, rich, and lasts a solid six hours on me. Yes, six hours! before it starts to fade a bit. Surprisingly, it’s not drying at all–the texture is silky and glides onto lips with ease, but it’s not overly creamy. It’s a stunning shade, and it certainly comes at a price. For those who can afford the indulgence, La Prairie lipsticks are excellent.

Two Ways to Win
You can do one, the other, or both to maximize your chances of winning…
1.) Leave a comment on this blog post telling me what you love most about the beach.
This is the look I ended up wearing to attend my local MAC’s To the Beach event. I had originally planned to do something bolder and brighter on the eyes, but I ran out of time, so I just went with the look I started the day with!
I’m happy to say I snagged the one item that really had me smile — the MAC To the Beach Bag ($49.95). It’s huge and cute and the perfect beach bag. It makes me want to go to the beach ASAP! Some photos of its loveliness and size comparisons included in this post!
Substitutes: Marine Life = NARS Deep Throat; Temperature Rising = Neon Orange lipstick; Easy Lounger = Prr
For eyes, start by applying Stay Don’t Stray as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. With the 239, apply the light peach eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid. Next, apply the medium brown eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid, softly into the crease. To define the crease, apply the dark chocolate brown eyeshadow with the 226. Blend the lightest shade above the crease and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying the dark brown eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Opulash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Marine Life high light powder to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Temperature Rising lip pencil first, and then layer Easy Lounger lipglass for a complementing lip.
MAC Cosmetics is teaming up with Disney to create a limited edition color collection, intended to launch globally in late September in all MAC locations. The products will feature four Disney characters, on which the brand is keeping mum at the moment — although with a collection name of Venomous Villains, it is assumed that we’re not talking Donald Duck and Minnie Mouse here. Lipstick, powder, lip gloss and blush shades will be sold, ranging in price from $12 to $29.50.
