We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Dreadful! Was going to say you’d likely look fine in the throwbacks Marrakesh and Spanish Fly. 36 a whack is outback outrageous!

Kinda Sexy, Velvet Teddy, Mehr, and Please Me are among my faves. I also love Viva Glam V, even though I’m not big on the lustre finish lipsticks. But it’s such a pretty, wearable, everyday color that I make the exception for it. Plus it’s for a good cause.

My favourite Mac lipsticks are always completely different to everyone else’s, mostly because I’m super pale but also super warm, I also have pretty pigmented lips, so most lighter nudes just look wrong.

So here goes:

1. Crosswires (my all time HG lipstick) love the colour, love the creme sheen finish, wear it all day every day.
2. Saucy Little Darling from the Nutcracker Collection- the perfect warm coralish pink
3. Ladybug, a great every day red
4. Viva Glam V- this does look slightly nude on me, but the lustre finish keeps it really pretty.
5. Diva- fantastic vamping sexiness

MAC Show Orchid, MAC New York Apple, MAC “O”, MAC Heroine, MAC Red, MAC Diva, MAC Media, MAC D For Danger and MAC Velvet Teddy are my favourite MAC lipsticks. My favourite red lipstick ever is MAC Stunner, which, sadly, is a limited edition shade. I really hope they bring it back someday.

Nigerian Girl, just like you, Stunner is one of my absolute favorite reds which is limited. I also love the other limited reds Opera (from Toledo collection) and Kinky Boots. Sadly they are all on minimal now and I may consider buying them on Ebay. Like you, I will be so happy if they re-promote any of these.

My top ten are: velvet teddy, kinda sexy, oxblood, cream in your coffee, enchanted one, so select, mama woo, relentlessly red, mocha and spirit
