My Coral Addiction – The Ultimate Spring Colour

My ultimate coral – MAC’s Vegas Volt

So I just had a quick look through my make up drawer on the hunt for my beloved MAC Vegas Volt and in the process counted 14 coral toned lipsticks. Fourteen. And I bet if I looked through my handbags that roam the house I would find more.

I feel I need to admit that I have a problem, a coral problem.

Looking back I think it started when I bought my first Vegas Volt. I loved it instantly. Softer than my usual favorite red lipstick, it suited my pale skin and dark hair perfectly. It was so easy to wear from day through to night and from there it seems to have spiraled. I have nude corals, orange corals, pink corals, coral lip glosses, coral lip liners, coral blushers and coral stains.

There is most definitely a coral out there for every skin tone, eye and hair colour. Apricots, peaches, oranges and pinks are perfect for brightening the skin without washing it out. Have a gander at my ridiculous collection…

Rachel’s Top 5 MAC Lipsticks

I love lipstick, Love.

Lipstick has been an icon of female empowerment for as long as I’ve had memories. It was invented about 5000 years ago (I’m not THAT old). The Egyptians wore it (slightly deadly… Let’s skip past that), Queen Elizabeth in the 16th century made bright lips infamous in England and by the end of the 19th century Guerlain began to manufacture lipstick.

NEW! MAC – red RED Red Collection

The new MAC offering is an awesome red affair. Consisting of 4 lipsticks, 3 eye shadows, 3 casual colours, 3 cremesheen glasses, 1 dazzleglass, 3 nail lacquers and a beauty powder. Wow. The standout items for us are the lipsticks, casual colours and eye shadows. We picked up a couple of items when the collection launched at the end of Jan which you may have already seen @mcrbeautyclub. 10932099_1605421879692895_423795103_n On the left is the casual colour in Out For Fun and the lipstick is Toxic Tale in a satin finish.The lipstick is creamy, bright and full colour of an orangey-red tone. The casual colour which can be used on cheeks and lips is lightweight and blendable. However, MAC seem to have lost some of the product in the repackaging, in 2014 we got 13ml and in 2015 we get 2.5ml for the same price?! Incredible. Red Alert The eye shadow in Red Alert is in a velux pearl finish, it’s a shimmery red-brown mid tone. It’s full colour and I didn’t experience any drop when applied. It’s blendable and brown enough to wear without eyeliner, unlike MAC’s Cranberry which I look slightly ill if I skip the eyelining step!

The full collection is in stores and online now.
