After reading Temptalia's review on Toledo X MAC limited edition collection, I'm hooked! I need to get my paws on some of that pretty lippies. And I did! Teehee~ Although it is sooo late for this collection to arrive on MAC Indonesia's shelf, but it was here! It is crazy, because the lippies are selling out so fast. And MAC Indonesia only stock up so little, so who's fast can go home with some of them.
I ended up bought Oxblood matte lipstick, Tenor Voice matte lipstick, and Sin lipglass(because Sin matte lipstick is sold out already! GAH. I know it's in the permanent line, BUT Toledo's limited packaging is EVERYTHING! *sad face*).
Everybody seems to hate Oxblood, because it doesn't live up to its name. Oxblood in this collection is a peachy nude in colour.
NOTE: This is my first encounter with MAC matte lipstick. My first thought is, IT IS GOOD! Now I know the hype behind MAC lipsticks. It is great product considering the price is lower than any retail lipstick that is pigmented, and fancy. Hate the flimsy plastic packaging though. But maybe that's why it is cheap(?).
Tenor Voice is the bomb from Toledo X MAC collection lippies, in my opinion. It is a cool tone red which is great to decorate warm faces, like mine. Formula wise, Tenor Voice is better than Oxblood. I dunno why, but maybe because it's red. Oxblood texture is more 'cakey' on the lips, and when layered up it tends to crack on fine lines. Tenor voice is my go to lippie if I need statement lips whenever I wanna go out, for now.
And again, this is my first time using MAC lipglass. Not bad, MAC. People always complain that MAC lipglass/gloss is too sticky. HELL NAW! It's not that bad, at least for me.
Sin lipglass is great on its own, or on top of dark lip liner. I didn't expect much from a lipgloss, so yeaaaah it's ok. Not super awesome, but just OK. It stains my lips at the end of the day.
I have another Spring collection matte red lipstick from another brand. On the next post I will do a comparison between both lippies. If you follow my Instagram/Twitter, you prolly have known what brand it is. Stay tuned, pretty readers. ^^,
