MAC RiRi Boy - Review & Swatches

Hello lovers! A few weeks ago, the limited edition RiRi Hearts MAC Collection was released on MAC.com and holy cow - chaos ensued! I'm a sucker for limited edition collections. I sat on my phone for nearly five hours trying to order something - anything - from the collection and was finally able to put an order through. I ended up getting RiRi Boy, Heaux (review coming soon!) and Hibiscus Kiss Blush/Bronzer duo. YAY! So let's see how RiRi Boy matched up to all the hype.

MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick


MAC RiRi Boy is described as a vivid lavender with a retro matte finish. I would call it a cool blue-toned fuschia. I never in a million years thought I could pull off a purple lipstick but I ended up absolutely loving this and thought it went really well with my skintone. The consistency is creamy and soft and weirdly enough not drying like I expected it would be. The color is definitely opaque enough to wear on its own and lasting time was around 3.5 hours before light fading. Cons? No limited edition packaging. Meh. The signature embedded into the lipstick is a nice touch but as a limited edition I think some crazy packaging would've made it better. Sigh. I guess I'll have to wait until the fall RiRi collection.


(Collective sigh on my unruly eyebrows. I'm, ahem, going for the "bold" look.)

SO. Who managed to snag something from the craziness that was RiRi Hearts MAC release? Would you rock RiRi Boy?
