RiRi ♥ M.A.C Fall Haul

'M.A.C Limited Edition' , three little words that never fail to make me a little giddy at the knees. Three words that often cause me to question my sanity, down to crazy thoughts that usually consist of running to my local M.A.C counter and purchasing every item in stock (with backups), and more often than not causes me to sit at my computer anxiously hitting that refresh button repeatedly, fearing that the collection with sell out the minute it goes live. Please tell me im not the only one?! 

M.A.Cs latest collection with Rihanna was no exception. Im in no means a RiRi fan (back in the day perhaps, but that ships long sailed), yet I still found my self sat patiently awaiting 11am last Thursday to get my RiRi M.A.C fix. Some may say im just a die hard M.A.C fan, but in all honesty I shamefully have to admit that im just an all round sucker for fabulous products in beautiful packaging (have I mentioned yet that everything is pink and rose gold?! ooh la la). 

Crazy thoughts aside, I think I was pretty restrained, as I only picked up three items. Of course if money were no option, it may very well have been a different story. Oh the shame. Right enough of my ramblings, So the products I picked up were RiRi ♥ M.A.C Lipglass ..RiRiWoo (£15.50/US$16.50) a beautiful creamy cool red. RiRi Woo is opaque enough to be worn alone, or paired alongside its sister Lipstick to create a perfect glossy finish. The gloss itself has a tendency to slip and slide, so to prevent this from happening I also picked up the RiRi ♥ M.A.C Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in RiRiWoo (£16/US$21.50), a perfect companion to the Lipglass and Lipstick. This pigmented matte pencil, is not only a lovely addition, but an essential to stop the Lipglass from migrating. 

Finally I picked up the RiRi ♥ M.A.C 282SE Duo Fibre Shader Brush (£22.50/US$32.00), which sadly I have to admit I regret buying. Theres no denying that the brush is aesthetically pleasing, with a pastel pink handle, adorning the M.A.C logo and neon pink RiRi M.A.C signature, and a beautiful rose gold ferule, whats not to love?! However heres where the praise ends. In all honesty for the price tag the brush itself is lacking in quality. The brush is soft, theres no denying that, however the bristles are uneven, have a tendency to shred and in all honesty causes the brush to look a little cheap (for £20 I could have picked up a set of brushes from Real Techniques). 

These are obviously my first impressions, so if you would like to see a full review on any of the items please let me know!! 
Did you pick up anything from RiRi ♥ M.A.C?!

  2. I have seen a few reviews now where the products were not too good, a few of the lipsticks seem to be pants which is a shame.
