MAC Cosmetics DSquared Collection: Lipsticks & Fuchsia Fix

MAC DSquared Collection is small launch in-stores today, the 28th. The collection includes two new, limited edition shades of lipstick–Nude Rose and Blood Red–as well as specially packaged, permanent item Fuchsia Fix tinted lip conditioner.

Lipstick

  • Nude Rose is a semi-sheer, milky pale pink-beige. It’s kind of like a nude lip color, but it has enough pink tones to it that it warms it up and gives it color.
  • Blood Red is a semi-opaque pinky-raspberry shade. It’s not red on me at all; it’s definitely pink and maybe a deep pink at that, but given its name, I was expecting something quite different.

Tinted Lip Conditioner

  • Fuchsia Fix is a bright pinky-fuchsia creamy lip color that is really only meant to add a bit of a tint to lips. Fuchsia Fix has always been a favorite, because it does tint my lips a brighter pink shade, but it’s not actually a hot or bright pink on.

These are surprisingly soft lip colors in comparison to the Style Black collection from last week!

  • Product: 8/10
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 8/10

Recommendation: If you like rosy, pinky shades, you should consider these.

Hey Christine,

I called both of my mac counters today and they said they weren’t getting it in until Thurs. Where exactly did the collection come out today?!?!!?

Angela

I just called my local Mac counter in Oklahoma and DSquared is available AND they got the Lip Erase. I’m sooo super excited! I really figured we would get the Mac late. Headed down there in a few.

my mac store has the dsquared out already….i am going to buy the nude rose lipstick…the blood red reminded me too much of most popular l/s from hello kitty and colour crafted so im gonna skip that one and wait to see what new lippies are coming out with the magic, mirth, mischief collection on the 15th.

Hey christine, I have a dilemma… I am NC 42 and I was just wondering which one do u think would look better on me.. Nude rose or patisserie that came out with euristocrats???

Hmmm…
maybe Nude Rose looks kind of like Cute-ster to Monet…
and…
maybe Blood Red looks kind of like Big Bow to me(more so in the lip swatches)
Too bad they don’t have a TLC that looks like Pink Fish.

shucks, the MAC store near me called me right when they opened to let me know that this collection did not arrive at their store, actually in Hawaii, period~ 🙁 I guess I’ll have to wait, thanks for the pics!

I got Blood Red, it’s beautiful, it also make a pretty rose pink with C-thru on top. Also, picked up the purple and blue greasesticks and the face and eye gloss.

I got blood red, it really reminds me of Milan mode from euristocrats collection except for the shimmer.. but I still like it..LOL!! I wanted to get the nude rose but they are so sheer on my lips:-( I might go back and still get them though,lol

This entire collection is SO my style. Its like it has been made for me =O How could MAC be aware of the fact that during wintertime, i always pull off a dark smudgey eye with rosy lolita lips. Gah, they’r just trying to make me more addicted than i already am :p

i picked up the ‘blood red’ lipstick and although it doesn’t look like blood, it does come out much different on me! (i’m nw35) it turns out a very deep sheer blue pink…

i really like the few items i’ve gotten from the collection, and may go back for more if my pocketbook can handle it…

the lipsticks really disapointed me!! when i knew about this collection i was super excited about the lipsticks names but they are not special nor unique for me 🙁

After seeing these swatches, I picked up BOTH of the l/s 🙂 And feline of course but that’s another post…

I love, love, love Naked Rose! Perfect natural pinky lip on me (NW15). I love it so much that I am going to get a backup – something I have NEVER done before 🙂

Blood Red was very bright pink-berry on me. Not sure how much I’ll wear it along but I’m still going to try it with neutral eyes.

OH, they look good when you mix both of them together too 🙂

i bought both of these lipsticks too! i bought the blood red one first, and liked it so much i went back two days later for the other….i wore one yesterday, the other today…maybe i’ll try them together tomorrow as you recommend!
