MAC Pro Lip Palette: Editorial Reds!!


Happy Hump Day!!

Sorry for being out of touch, I had to sort out a few technical issues with my new internet security suite and firewall, but all is good now 😉

So onto the pretty stuff – I had this nifty little MAC lip palette on my “buy me!” list for a month or so now and finally was able to get it last week and I’m not disappointed 🙂

It is the MAC PRO Lip Palette in Editorial Reds. They also have Preferred Pinks, Editorial Oranges, Select Plums and Modern Browns. Oh how I wish I could have them all, but since I couldn’t splurge to that extent, I opted for the Editorial Reds palette.

Each palette comes with a $40 price tag, and personally, I feel it is worth the money for what it is.

MAC would be considered a luxury/department brand, with some of the price tags to match, but worth it – if you know which products to go after.

There are many MAC products that I would recommend (and some I would pass on), but MAC lipsticks, with their high quality, staying power and pigment payoff, are ones you should really consider testing out; which is why I think these palettes are a perfect option.

The palette comes with six (6) MAC lipstick shades, 1g each, for a total of 6g of product. A single MAC lipstick, 3g of product, costs $15. So to get each of the included colors alone would cost you $90 and with the palette you get 6 pans of some of their top shades for $40.

Yes, you do get less product, which is the exact reason I chose the Editorial Reds palette, since most of these are not colors I wear every single day, but rather just when I want that bold lip look. I also think this is perfect timing, since I LOVE a bold lip especially during this time of the year.

Remember a good lip brush is a must with this palette and I suggest avoiding finger application, as these shades do stain due to their strong pigments and staying power.

Quick Shade Overview:

“Dare You” – A brown red cremesheen lipstick that applies slightly sheer, very buildable.

“Lady Danger” – A bright orange-coral red matte lipstick, very pigmented.

“On Hold” – A yellow-pink-based red cremesheen lipstick, slightly sheer and buildable.

“Russian Red” – A true vivid blue-based red matte lipstick, great color on almost everyone.

“MAC Red” – A bright blue-pink-based red satin lipstick, very smooth on the lips.

“Ruby Woo” – A true blue-based red retro matte lipstick, very matte and slightly less vivid that Russian Red.
