Mac Haul: Riri Hearts Mac Collection plus First Impressions & Swatches

Hey guys,

I’m super excited because I just received my package from Mac filled with items from the RiRi Hearts Mac Collection. I’m not a fan of Rhianna at all but I have to say I FELL IN LOVE with the packaging… its out of this world amazing. Plus there were a few really unique and versatile pieces. I’m sure you’ve seen posts galore featuring these products but in case your interested this is what I picked up: the Pro Longwear Lip Pencil and Lipglass in Riri Woo, Who’s That Chick Lipstick, Bad Girl Gone Good Satin Blush, Diamonds Cream Color Base, and Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_CollectionHere’s a close up of all the goodies and some hand swatches…

Riri Woo Pro Longwear Lip PencilĀ is a cool toned red with a matte finish. At first impression it glides on and seems pretty pigmented. The texture is super smooth too.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_ririwooprolongwearpencilRiRi Woo Lipglass is a cool toned red with a super glossy finish. I love the lipglasses and dont mind the stickiness so the formula is good in my opinion. I actually wore this one yesterday, its super pigmented and looks beautiful on the lips. It didn’t feather or smudge and lasts for a good 4 hours. I opted out of purchasing the lipstick as I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks as they tend to be extremely drying on me plus I love the ease of using a gloss.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_rirwoolipglassHere’s a comparison of the pencil and lipglass…basically identical apart from the finish.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_ririwoopencil/lipglassSurprisingly I was drawn to the Who’s That Chick Lipstick the most. Its a orangey bronze with a frosty finish. I’m not normally a fan of frosted lipstick but sheered out this shade is really nice and wearable, and it actually complimented my fair complexion. Its a pretty unique shade and I can definitely make it work. I’m thinking it would look great layered with a nude.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_whosthatchickBad Girl Gone Good is a pale muted brown with orange undertones. I thought this might pull too orange on my skin but I think it could actually work as a contour shade for fair skin. I haven’t tried it yet but ill report when I do.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_badgirlgonegoodThe Diamonds Cream Color Base was the item I was most excited about. Its a beautiful shimmer champagne. I wore this one yesterday too and it was so easy to blend on to the cheekbones. It really gave a light ethereal glow. Love this.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_diamondscreamcolorbaseI picked up the Hibiscus Kiss Blush Powder since I skipped out on it last time it was released. It has a bright coral blush on one side and a mid toned brown bronzer on the other. You can wear the shades separately or swirl them together for a warm coral flush.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_HIbiscusKissI skipped out on the eye shadow quads as they seemed to really lack in the texture and pigmentation department (at least what I saw from other blogs!!) and the brush sets didn’t appeal to me. So far I’m pretty happy with my choices I made. The packaging is to die for and from first impressions the products seem to be great quality. I definitely need to play around with them and really test them out before I can give a full review. Have any of you purchased items from this collection, whats your thoughts on the quality and packaging?
