My Video Post on the Riri Hearts MAC Fall 2013 Collection Swatches and Review already went live on this blog and on my YouTube channel, but here is my written review and photo swatches of the Riri Hearts MAC Fall 2013 lipsticks.
I have two of the lipsticks in the Riri Hearts MAC packaging, but my Riri Woo lipstick is in the regular MAC packaging from its first release several months ago.
Here are my Riri Hearts MAC lipstick swatches and my thoughts on them.
Riri Hearts MAC Lipstick in Talk That Talk, Who's That Chick
MAC lipsticks in Talk that Talk, Who's that Chick
MAC Talk That Talk lipstick is a beautiful deep plum in the Retro Matte finish. As I mentioned in my video review, this is drying on the lips because of the really matte finish, so make sure to moisturize your lips often. It is definitely a very fall color, though, and I love how scary it looks in the pic, but beautiful when worn.
Who's That Chick is a frosty tangerine. I am not sure if I am liking the frosty nature, although I do think the frost finish helps the orange hue to be more forgiving as a color. I like it applied very lightly on the lips.
MAC Talk That Talk Pro Longwear lip pencil is obviously the exact same shade as MAC Talk That Talk Lipstick. I like to apply this lip pencil all over my lips and fill them in before applying the lipstick version, as I notice that this makes the lipstick look less patchy on the lips.
MAC Riri Woo lipstick
L-R: MAC Riri Woo, MAC Riri Boy, MAC Heaux lipsticks
Riri Boy and Heaux are not part of this Riri Hearts MAC Fall 2013 collection, but I am showing them just to point out that they should have been a part of this collection. They're such beautiful shades that can be used for fall as well.
I think most of us agree that the Riri Hearts MAC lipsticks are the stars of the Riri collection not just for this fall, but even for the last summer release as well. I gotta say that the Talk That Talk lipstick was patchy when applied haphazardly, so be sure to apply carefully and I suggest filling in your lips with a lip pencil like Talk That Talk Pro Longwear just to minimize the patchiness.
