MAC Zac Posen Collection Lipstick – Dangerously Red

If you are a MAC addict like me then you’ll have lots of Limited Edition collectables from them. I don’t buy from every range, but every now and then you’ll see a range that is so beautiful that you can’t resist.

The latest range is from the iconic American designer, Zac Posen. Posen is known for his extravagant gowns and for being a celebrity fashion darling. Posen has brought his love of striking colour palettes and statement making items to MAC.

So many great things to choose from, but I only had the budget to buy one.

I purchased one item from their new collection, the matte lipstick in Dangerously Red. There were three lipsticks on offer, a nude, a beautiful orange and Dangerously Red.

A deep fushcia, it is the perfect matte formulation that provides absolutely full colour without drying your lips. The shade is vibrant, but so wearable.

Retailing for NZ$44 the packaging is amazing. It’s really high quality, nice and heavy with square packaging and gold lettering – quite different from the standard MAC bullet packaging.

And how did it look? Within the first hour of wearing it I’ve had lots of compliments, so that’s saying something!

Here in the pics below, I show it swatched on my arm and also pictured on me. For reference I’m currently NC40 in MAC foundations.

I wore it with a gold smokey eye, but think it will look amazing with perhaps a navy blue or dark purple wing. I can’t wait to try more looks!
