MAC Mariah Carey All I Want Lipstick - BittersweetI love Mariah Carey! I've always cheered her on through her ups and downs. Outfit choices? Not so much. LOL MAC decided to come out with a Mariah Carey lipstick for Christmas. The lipstick was appropriately named "All I Want", after her hit Christmas song :) Well, there are a couple of problems. The lipstick is a frost! Frosted lipsticks are very pretty, but they don't look good on everybody. It doesn't matter how light or dark you are, frosts just don't work for some people. I have a really hard time carrying them off (therefore I avoid buying them), but my mom wears them REALLY well (she's darker and a different hue). All I Want is described as a Champagne Frost. Mariah stated she didn't want to do a red lipstick for Christmas and therefore decided on a frosted lipstick. It's shimmery. It feels good to the lips (not dry). It applies evenly. But after looking at some pictures on Instagram, it doesn't look good on everyone (so buy with caution). I'm wearing it alone in the pictures below, but I will have to either use this as a topper or mixed with some type of gloss. Another problem is the packaging! Plain box. Plain lipstick bullet. HELLO! This is MARIAH CAREY! Where's her image on the box? Where's her signature? What happened MAC? That was a disappointment! Some good news! MAC has a chance to get this RIGHT again! MAC will be releasing a COMPLETE Mariah Carey makeup collection in 2016! I really hope they do a better job than what they did here. Mariah is an ICON, and therefore her collection should be.
MAC Dita Von Teese TEESE Lipstick - SweetSEXY & SPICY! HaHaHa I've always admired Dita Von Teese's beauty. The burlesque star always seems to have the perfect coif hair, porcelain skin, black eyeliner and signature RED lips. She really takes care of herself. Unlike Mariah Carey's All I Want lipstick, Dita Von Teese is displayed beautifully on the box (HINT: if you buy 3 and put the boxes together, it will show her complete image). Her signature is on the lipstick bullet AND engraved on the lipstick itself. Mariah, you need to FIRE somebody! That's what you should've had for your lipstick. Teese is a gorgeous red. It's described as a tomato red. It's definitely matte, but it has a shine to it. It's not flat. I like it. I was hoping it would be a little redder, but it will work. Dita Von Teese has also released a beauty BOOK called Your Beauty Mark! I purchased it for a friend and it is gorgeous! It's super heavy, thick and loaded with pictures & advice. Gorgeous for a coffee table! I think once I'm finished with renovations I'll buy it for myself.
Both lipsticks are STILL AVAILABLE: Dita Von Teese and Mariah Carey! I'm so use to MAC Collections selling out, that this was a shocker to me. LOL I purchased extras for ONE lucky reader of AVSB. Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. OPEN WORLDWIDE!
