MAC Fall Colour Lipsticks ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) includes eight (yes, eight!) shades: Fleshpot (pale muted pinky beige), Fusion Pink (bright coral), Neon Orange (bright clean orange), Plum Bright (purple), Ruby Woo (vivid bluish-red), Show Orchid (vivid hot pink), Violetta (bright clean violet purple), and X-S (dirty red chestnut). These are part of the MAC Fall Colour Collection, which debuts in North America on September 29th, 2011 and rolls out internationally in October. Plum Bright is the only new and limited edition shade, while X-S used to be permanent, I believe it was discontinued (I have old, old swatches of it but it’s not listed online any more). Ruby Woo is permanent at all MAC locations, and the other shades are permanent at PRO stores.
MAC Fusion Pink Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is truly a retina-burning kind of pinky-red. I wanted to put some shades on when I was editing this in its original size, because I swear, my eyes were like, “Hey, this is rude!” This shade is a cross between a vibrant reddish coral and iridescent fuchsia pink. It’s almost as if the base is this ridiculously bright red-coral with an iridescent fuchsia sheen that further blinds you. This is most certainly not a shade for those who don’t dive headlong into color! Heads up, it’s a PRO shade, but anybody can order or shop at PRO stores.
