MAC Retro Mattes Collection - All Fired Up & Dangerous

Remember when I went wild over the announcement of MAC's new fall collection? I was never one to get overly excited about a MAC collection (if at all), but this one tickled my fancy instantly! I am such a huge fan of their Ruby Woo and to think I could get more shades in the same formula was too much to handle. Now I've finally got my shaking with excitement-hands on two of the shades and here they are: 

Ruby Woo, Dangerous, All Fired Up

I had a moment of true panic like nothing else when I went into the MAC website and everything was sold out. How could this have happened?? I was watching that website like a hawk for these! I immediately started planning my trip to the nearest MAC counter! Luckily, they came back in to stock 2 days later and now I know there is a God!

I already owned Ruby Woo, but it is also included in the collection. Initially I (obviously) felt like I wanted them all, but checking the colours again after the first flush of excitement,  I realize a couple of them wouldn't work very well on my skin tone. I ended up going for All Fired Up, this gorgeous, neutral magenta colour and Dangerous, a very orangey shade. 

 

The formula of these is just as gorgeous and a true matte as Ruby Woo's. I recommend putting some lip balm on and then removing the excess with a tissue before applying, since these can be quite drying. Also make sure your lips are nicely exfoliated, since matte formula will highlight any bit that shouldn't be there!

 I have only got good things to say about my new purchases! Have you picked anything up from the Retro Mattes collection?

  3. I absolutely loved the All Fired Up lipstick. I'm looking forward to buy it because looks amazing on your lips. And thank you for the tips on applying before a lip balm and removing the excess of it... I always have a hard time using matte lipsticks. I only own the Kinda Sexy lipstick from MAC, but I'm super excited to buy the Ruby Woo and now the All fired up as well.

    Hopefully I will find a way to wear them without feeling uncomfortable with my dry lips.

  18. I tried dangerous on today in store and LOVED it, I didn't buy it just because I have sooo many red matte lipsticks that another one would be ridiculous! The pink looks lovely too :)
