Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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!

MAC Red Dwarf Pro Longwear or Clarins Redwood Rouge Prodige (I loved that formula – long wearing but not drying or ugly on the lips; of course, it was discontinued in no time flat).

The ColourPop x Safiya lipsticks! The concept was super fun and the lipstick colors were all pretty awesome, too. Safiya recently made two lipsticks from scratch, so maybe she’ll aak ColourPop to match those and also re-release the original set. 🙂

That would have to be my choice, too. Except that I doubt I’ll ever use up the tube I have of if we have to wear masks for a few more years! And we may well need to, unfortunately, as this thing keeps creating variants.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna I (red) lipstick
MAC Sunset Pearl lipstick
Pat McGrath Flesh 4 lip gloss
Pat McGrath Tropicalia lipstick

Both Tom Ford Seadragon and MAC La Vie En Rouge, as I fear both will “turn” before I get to wear them out and about again before they turn bad.

I know MAC most likely has dupes or re-iterations of the shades, but years after I still long for the lip products in the Charlotte Olympia collection. The Kids Me Quick lip liner was a shade I would have never wore, but it looked great on me.
I wasn’t fond on the lipstick packaging, bit rarely a collection of reds impressed me so much.
Sometimes I just wish MAC would find again the passion and inspiration for good quality collaborations / limited edition, like they did 5-6 years ago.

Weirdly, e.l.f. Lock-On Lip Primer…the best of the liquid lip primers and the cheapest at all of $3 (closest equivalent is probably the Lime Crime at over 5 times the price :/ )

Well this wasn’t LE, but it’s now discontinued: MAC Really Me. It was a beautiful cool-toned dusty nude-pink. I’ve studied the Temptalia dupes so I can find similar shades, but Really Me was amazing. I have a stub left in my first tube, and an unopened backup in my only other tube.
