MAC Toledo collection - my picks

11:29 PM

Hi there,

M·A·C is launching amazing collections at the moment and because I'm in a lipstick phase I'm getting really excited about each new release! What about you?
I picked a few items from the M·A·C Toledo collection and I'll show you what I got.

There are 6 matte lipsticks in this collection and I decided to go back home with Barbecue and Tenor Voice. By the way, my lovely friend Andreia of 10tubes has a gorgeous picture of Opera if you want to see it HERE.

I took plenty of pictures because the packaging is just divine!

Barbecue on the left and Tenor Voice on the right.

Barbecue (matte)
Barbecue is described as a vivid orange red with a Matte finish.
It's a medium orange-red lipstick with warm undertones. It's very pigmented, quite creamy and easy to apply without dragging on the lips. It's not drying nor hydrating and it lasts about 5 hours on me. After 5 hours I usually eat something and that's why it usually wears off after that time.
I really like orange-red lipsticks at the moment so you can imagine how much I love Barbecue! It's not too orange, there is still much red in it so it's a very wearable orange lipstick in  my opinion.
Did I tell you that now I want to get Morange? :D

Tenor Voice (matte)
Tenor Voice is described as a true classic red with a Matte finish. To me, it's not a true red, it has some blue  undertones, it leans more on the cool side. Maybe I'm saying this because I unintentionally compare it with Barbecue but I don't think so.
Just as Barbecue, it applies smoothly, is quite pigmented, and is rather comfortable to wear. It also lasts about 5 hours on me.

Oh by the way I almost forgot, if you're looking for a lip liner that matches Barbecue, High Energy is quite close to it!

I'm so happy I got these 2 lipsticks because they're awesome! First, the packaging is gorgeous. I love all the details on the secondary packaging and on the lipstick itself!
I love the matte finish and I'm glad that they're comfortable to wear! Of course, I absolutely adore both colors but especially Barbecue! I've been wearing it very often lately! :D
