Hey lovelies,

Today I have the pleasure of showing you two of the five lipstick shades coming out with MAC's Giambattista Valli collection, which launches in New Zealand on the 7th of September. You can find the rest of the collection details in the press release I posted earlier today.

The packaging for this collection won hearts everywhere with coloured tubes that match the lipstick shades inside. I particularly like the frosted metallic wind up section contrasted with the matte exterior.
MAC's mattes generally apply very smoothly without dragging and feel rather velvety on the lips; Tats and Eugenie are no exception and have great textures. MAC lipsticks have a vanilla scent (nom!) and the limited edition packaging shades have a RRP of $44.00NZD.

Tats is described as a bright hot pink matte. The yellow tones set it apart from the majority of the hot pinks in my collection, the closest colours I have are MAC No Faux Pas and Lime Crime Pink Velvet, both of which are a touch bluer and lighter and darker, respectively. Tats has smooth, opaque colour pay off and wears for seven hours on me without being drying. By the end of wear, it was mostly a stain.

Eugenie is described as a dark cherry with blue undertones with a matte finish. It applies smoothly without tugging or dragging but still winds up looking a little patchy when viewed up close. From a normal viewing distance it's absolutely fine and it's not a deal breaker for me - I'm in love with this vampy cherry! It's very similar to Kat Von D Motorhead which is significantly patchier. Eugenie wears for a bit over five hours without feathering or being drying and leaves some staining.

What I liked:
  • Tats wears for seven hours
  • Eugenie wears for a little over five hours
  • Both shades apply smoothly
  • Tats has excellent colour pay off
  • Neither of the shades are drying
  • They do not feather or migrate
What I didn't like:
  • Eugenie is slightly patchy
