Ruby // Pedro Lourenco for MAC



I occasionally stalk the American MAC website to see what is going to be gracing our shores and found the Pedro Lourenco collection and fell a little in love. Pedro Lourenco is a Brazilian fashion designer, you can view his latest collection on PedroLourenco.com where there are some beautiful pieces. After my tweet from the gorgeous Anoushka from anoushkaloves.com to let me know it was on the UK website I went and made an order. I restrained myself and just chose one lipstick, meet Ruby, the newest lipstick to the collection.

I have numerous red lipsticks but nothing quite like this. Ruby comes in an Amplified finish and is described as a mid-tone blue red. The packaging comes in MAC's signature, bullet casing but this has a velvety soft feel to it, just like the Viva Glam Rihanna. I've only had this for a week and have worn it twice now, it glides effortlessly onto my lips and leaves a vibrant, burst of red. It's so creamy and easy to apply.  I had around 3-4 hours wear time with this, including eating and drinking. It feels second nature to go off to the toilet to touch up your make up, so reapplying doesn't bother me too much. I'm starting to really love the Amplified finish so any suggestions would be much appreciated. There are three more shades available,  Peach Beige, True Red and Roxo so if you're quick you may even manage to bag one for yourself.

  3. This is so gorgeous, and I love the gold on the packaging, it makes MAC's fairly plain packaging look far more luxurious! x
