The Scarlet Season: MAC Wild ‘Bout You Lipstick
MAC Wild ‘Bout You Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) was a limited edition shade of amazingness launched with the Rockocco Collection back in fall of 2006. MAC described it as a “rich raspberry with pink pearlized pigments” with a matte frost finish (who knew you could have a matte frost!). This shade is almost not quite a red, but I couldn’t resist including it, because 1) it does have a red tinge to it, and 2) I tend to reach for it when I’m feeling like wearing red.
It’s a very amped up raspberry red with kind of an icy pearl fuchsia-pink sheen, but otherwise, the lipstick itself is matte. I will also say that Wild ‘Bout You is a particularly dry matte, so it’s not the easiest to use on imperfect lips. Because it does have a tendency to be quite dry, I usually wear it with a gloss on top, which makes it look and feel the way I like it to. Don’t forget – you can see looks/lip combinations of me wearing this lipstick here.
The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!
