You guys... YOU GUYS! I was never one to get excited about MAC collections. But I found myself drooling over all the items on this one so I just knew I had to share it with you as soon as possible, since this has "sold out" written all over it!
The new MAC Retro Mattes Collection has 8 lipsticks (the 8th one, not pictured is Ruby Woo) and 8 Pro Long Wear lip pencils. 
A little story about MAC... When the brand started, back in 1984, as a small, very niche make up brand, they had a line of matte lipsticks. However, when they were bought by Estee Lauder, in 1998, they felt their mattes were too dry and hard, so they made a few tweaks to the formula and that is the matte we have today! In 2000 they released a limited edition collection with the old matte formula and one of those lippies stuck around, becoming permanent, our beloved Ruby Woo! It is still the only retro matte lipstick on MAC to this day. 
I absolutely love this retro matte formula. It can be quite drying, but if you just make sure your lips are properly moisturized, it gives the most beautiful effect! I know I love my Ruby Woo, it's the red lipstick I've been wearing on the last blog posts. I've never been this excited about LIPSTICKS! haha It'll be available in September and I can't WAIT!

So, what do you guys think?? Will you be picking anything up? 
I'm excited to know your thoughts on this!

Brazilian blogger and VOGUE Brazil beauty editor Victoria Ceridono broke the news on a video on her YouTube channel.
