Charlotte Olympia x MAC - Leading Lady Red & Starlet Scarlett Lipsticks

      I'm such a sucker for pretty packaging already, but when makeup items are housed in clear acrylic and gold packaging I just cannot not purchase the items! So imagine my reaction when I saw these limited edition MAC x Charlotte Olympia lipsticks that are pretty much my dream packaging when it comes any and all makeup items. Although I already own red lipsticks that I love, I played enabler to myself with the justification that I didn't have red lipsticks that looked like these and imagined how they would look displayed on my vanity. Click through to see the rest of this impulsive (but gorgeous) purchase!

      I know, gorgeous right? The collection is inspired by Hollywood screen sirens and features Charlotte Olympia's iconic spiderweb. There are a total of three lipsticks, but I got the two shades Leading Lady Red and Starlett Scarlett. Leading Lady Red is described as a deep red with blue tones while Starlett Scarlett is a true red with more orange undertones. I personally am partial to Leading Lady Red! Color payoff is good, and the finish is matte. They smell the same way as all MAC lipsticks do (a slightly sweet vanilla marshmallow scent), and they're only a dollar more at $18 than the regular MAC lipsticks. The one complaint I have about them is that I wish they were slightly heavier as they feel a little too light in the hand. Still, for under $20 a bullet, I can't really complain. Purchase these and other items in the collection (I was really tempted to purchase the makeup bag/clutch too!) online or at the MAC counter or at Nordstrom while they're still available!
