Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: MAC Toledo: Barbecue Lipstick

MAC Toledo: Barbecue Lipstick






MAC has launched yet another awesome collection this past weekend, featuring the Toledo couple. I'm sure you heard of the collection. But I wanted to share with you one of my favorite lipsticks from the whole collection. Barbecue. Yes you read it right. Not only is this an awesome color but the name is also super fun! The pictures are seriously not doing this lipstick enough justice! It's much brighter in person.


I got this lipstick for gratis so it's not on the special packaging so there was no point in taking pictures of it, but it's a very vivid orange with a red undertone. I absolutely love it! If you are familiar with MAC lipsticks this one reminds me a little bit of Lady Danger , but a little more orange. 




I'm all for a statement lip. So since I wanted my lips to be the center of attention I used super neutral colors on my eyes. I decided to go with a low key cut crease. Using mainly the Riri ♥ MAC palette (Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad) I also used some carbon on my crease to help me smoke it out.

My face is looking oh so dewy today! I got a lot of compliments on my makeup and specially my foundation. I was wearing MAC's Mineralize Moisture Foundation. It used to be my favorite foundation when it first came out but my skin has changed since and it just doesn't work the same for me. But I ran out of my favorite foundation and had to use this one as a backup. It doesn't look bad, I've been into the matted skin look lately. 

I didn't have to work till noon, so I even did a a fancy hairstyle with my braids! I used a tut from youtube, it was super easy :)

All in all it was a good hair and makeup day!

    2. I thought it was the exact color Sin from the Rocky Horror line and it's not. I don't think the color looks good on me. I'm gonna give it one more try before I send it back

  7. I wouldn't normally be a fan of orangey lipsticks, but it looks stunning on you! And I'm also loving your 1930's-esque braid undo hair! So classy!
