MAC Marge Simpson Collection for Fall 2014

image

D’oh! I know this is all about Marge but I just couldn’t help myself lol. I was pretty excited when I found out MAC is planning to release a Marge Simpson themed collection this fall! The combination is a little weird but it sounds like such fun! The Maleficent collection was such a disappointment so I’m hoping MAC will redeem themselves and make this collection extra unique and creative. I’d love to see a blue lipstick and some special packaging! But considering that Marge doesn’t wear much makeup on a regular basis I’m not quite sure how things will turn out. Let’s all hope the Marge collection will be great!

Fancie’s Fall Lipstick Picks

It’s been rather warm here in Michigan lately but it’s still fall! Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons. I just love the warm rich colors and cozy weather! My signature look is usually bright bold lips but I’m swapping my bright pinks for some vampy fall lippies. Dark lips are so in right now!

MAC Nude Lipstick Review

Finally a nude lipstick for women of color! I have discovered a few gems in the RiRi Hearts MAC fall collection but I was most pleasantly surprised by Nude. It’s definitely a challenge finding a nude that’s not too light or muddy looking but MAC has made the task a little simpler with Nude!

It’s described as a cool nude cream. Which is pretty dead on. It’s a taupey cool beige shade that goes on very smoothly. It’s very creamy for a matte. But I like it! Once it sets I’m left with a subtle matte finish that wears for around 4 hours before starting to fade.

Nude is very flattering on many complexions but it does take a little tweaking. Because it’s so cool and deep it can look poopy or corpse-like. I didn’t like it the first time I tried it on. Then I paired it with MAC Cork Lip pencil and really liked it! The one thing I don’t like about Nude is that settles into lines after a few hours of wear just like any other nude lipstick. Otherwise, it’s a pretty beautiful nude lippie! If you missed out on Nude there is a very, very similar shade coming out this week in the MAC Divine Night collection. Of course, it won’t be in that gorgeous rose gold packaging but it’ll still be dipped in gold rather than the standard silver accents. Be sure to check your local MAC counter this Thursday for the release!
