Dita Von Teese is the physical embodiment of class and seduction – she’s beautiful, she’s empowered, and she’s a lady. Can you tell that I love her a little bit? ?
When I first saw the promo images for her lipstick collaboration with MAC, I knew I had to order it as soon as it was released! Von Teese, an online exclusive, is meant to celebrate the launch of Dita’s new book titled Your Beauty Mark. Guess what’s also next on my reading list?
The embossed details on MAC’s limited edition lipsticks lately have been the cherry on top of a gorgeous special-packaging sundae. I love when you can tell that thought and planning were put into a release! Nothing irritates me more than a highly-anticipated launch that has lackluster packaging and seems thrown-together. You can find Ms. Von Teese’s ultra-feminine signature adorning the lipstick inside and out.
Even Von Teese’s formula made me giddy! Unsurprisingly, the color she chose for this launch is one of her signature reds. It goes on pretty matte, but isn’t dry. The application didn’t tug at my lips, and the orangey-red color lasts for hours before starting to look patchy.
This color is sadly recently unavailable on MAC’s website (though of course is available on sites like eBay for a ridiculous mark-up) but I couldn’t resist reviewing it! Plus, MAC and Dita have worked together in the past, so you never know when we may see this color pop up again ?.
