Lady In Red...Loving MAC's Red, Red, Red Collection


Whether it be red lipstick, red eyeshadow, red blush, red nail polish, red colored clothing, red shoes, or red hair, my adoration for all things red is boundless. Actually, I've been contemplating dyeing my hair red again.

MAC's Red, Red, Red Collection is/was a gorgeously seductive, well-edited release, with a stunning promotional image that captivates your gaze. I really love everything about the promotional image.

 From left to right: Give Me Fire, Strike While Haute, Red Alert Eyeshadow. 

From left to right: Out for Fun, Secret Admirer, Hot Sensation, 5 Alarm.

Aside from Valentine's Day, I've worn the look below four times last week.

Face:

MAC Lip Pencil in Burgundy (used in the corners of the lips and lightly along the inner part of the top and bottom lip). 
MAC Lipstick in 5 Alarm.

From the playfully demure to the fiery seductive, I adore all the variations of reds within the collection.

Every single piece in this collection is a little seductress; the eyeshadows have a mesmeric allure (I love their names); the lipstick products deliver an enticing pout; the Casual Colours give an unabashed flush to the cheeks; and, the beauty powder provides the complexion with a coy afterglow.

The Red, Red, Red Collection was a limited edition release, but I just checked on maccosmetics.com, and all items are still available. I may just pick up some backups :)

What were your thoughts on MAC's Red, Red, Red Collection? Did you pick anything up?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
