MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Cosmetic Collection: Review, Swatches And Giveaway

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

I was only suppose to purchase ONE lipstick from the MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show makeup collection! I ended up purchasing FIVE things (no self control), because they didn't release the lipstick I (everyone) wanted (FrankNFurter) until LAST! Marketing ploy! HaHaHa But GUESS WHAT!?! I like the other two lipsticks (Oblivion & Strange Journey), better than FrankNFurter (the one I was waiting for)! HAHAHA Getting these items was PURE MADNESS! MAC literally had people waiting two days (they're known for delays & hysteria when collections are released), BUT they did offer FREE OVERNIGHT SHIPPING. So that was a plus. I kept checking their website morning, noon and night via phone and laptop. I was literally a zombie by the time I purchased everything. MAC does this on purpose (low supply & high demand)! Beauty bloggers (like moi) covet MAC collections! However, some buy mass quantities and sell them for ridiculous prices on eBay! I've only seen clips of THIS movie (never saw it in it's entirety). I knew it was a classic and I love red lipsticks. I've been good this year as it relates to MAC collections. I've only purchased from two (MAC Playland and this one), of their MANY COLLECTIONS. For tips on how to score MAC collections online, read mine HERE.




MAC Oblivion Lipstick: There were FOUR lipsticks in the collection (Sin, Oblivion, Strange Journey and FrankNFurter). I purchased THREE of them. I love them all, but my favorite is OBLIVION. It's a glossy red and absolutely fabulous. I've got to give it to MAC. They really knows lipsticks. I'm so glad I purchased this one.


MAC Strange Journey Lipstick: This is an orange-y red lipstick! It's matte and I like it. It's perfect for Fall & Winter.


MAC FrankNFurter Lipstick: This is the lipstick that sold out online in like MINUTES! I bet because of the name! HaHaHa I was one of the lucky ones, so I'm giving one away to a lucky reader of AVSB. This lipstick is vamp enough for me! Sin lipstick (not pictured) is even more vamp, but I didn't purchase it. FrankNFurter reminds me of a deep berry wine (at least on me). It can look different on other skin tones! It's also matte. I love the outer packaging of the products, but as you can see the inner with all the characters in the movie are awesome too.


Below are the MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show lipstick swatches on my hand.Click pictures to make larger.


MAC Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer: There were TWO nail polishes in this collection. Since I purchased RED lipsticks, I went with Bad Fairy. I call it my glittery, glitzy, what color is it nail lacquer! HaHaHa It's red, purple, pink, orange and rust rolled into one. It's reading purple in the picture, but if you get this you'll definitely understand what I'm talking about. I've dissed MAC nail polishes in the past, but they seem to be getting a little better. Can't really tell with this one, because it took 3 coats! O_0 But it's pretty. However, prepare for glitter on your fingertips/skin when you take it off. HaHaHa Have you been to a party? Why YES!


MAC Riff Raff Eyeshadow Palette: I can't stop laughing at the name of this palette! HaHaHa It's based on a character in the movie, that I show below. Well, I refuse to wear these shadows with a red lip (i'm not that good) so I paired 4/6 of the colors (I'm not an eyeshadow connoisseur) with a pink lip (FYI: my pink lip is NYX Soft Matte HERE). These shadows are pretty cool. I took a chance with purchasing this, because they're not the colors I usually go for, but sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone, and just give things a chance.


Hope you enjoyed my review! Have a great day!

It always amazes me how crazy people go for MAC collections - I guess I'm more of a Chanel girl at heart, but I love a vamp red lipstick and FrankNFurter looks like the perfect fall shade to me! Crossing my fingers for the giveaway :) That said, I think my favourite from the collection is the polish, the way the colour look on your nails is just divine!
xox,

I can see why you had no self-control over this collection, Kim. Wowee! All the lippies look fab on you, but that Oblivion is something else. I passed by a MAC store and saw the collection from afar but I was with the the kiddos so I didn't have a chance to go in. Must see if I can stop by and check it out in person.
TY for another awesome review:D

I can understand why you had no self control when it came to this collection (A great name as we head towards Halloween too) Those lipsticks are all such rich colours and perfect for the new season. The nail varnish looks a lovely shade too and one which I'm sure will be versatile throughout autumn and winter. Hope your week is going well.

You are simply gorgeous in the Oblivion shade! It is funny that you liked the other shades more than the one you really wanted. You never know how something will turn out until you try it right? Ooh and I picked up a few edible goodies for you in Tokyo!

Haha, I tried to watch that movie for the first time the other day and I just couldn't do it. I got about half way through when the video froze and we decided it was sign, lol. The lipstick is beautiful, though! I'd have to agree that Oblivion is my favorite, it's just so beautiful and rich!

Great review as always!

I have soft spot for lipsticks. I find very hard to say no to pretty lipstick and these looks gorgeous. And I love your nail polish as well.

I very rarely enter giveaways, just because I don't find myself lucky, yet for this one I will keep my fingers cross.

What lovely pics of you, Kim! These look fab!!! Love the reds. My hubby and I went to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show one night at midnight over 30 years ago. We were newlyweds. At the time, we thought it was a fun but totally bizarre experience. Now, we remember it fondly. :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

So sweet and generous of you. As to the MAC polish, I was disappointed with them a couple of years ago and figure there are just way too many awesome companies out there for me to keep trying MAC polishes. Their makeup is good and I'll stick to that. But since you collect attractive packaging then these polishes are perfect in that aspect.

Christina Dragan said...

Love the look of this collection!
