Tutorial: Talk That Talk [RiRi Hearts MAC]

Talk That Talk Lipstick

I created a look using some of the items from the RiRi Hearts MAC fall collection, mainly featuring the Her Cocoa eyeshadow quad and Talk That Talk lipstick, which was a huge hit. It’s sold out everywhere! If you didn’t get it and don’t want to pay a hefty premium on eBay just throw on MAC’s Nightmoth lip pencil. MAC’s Media and Diva lipsticks are a little less vampy but you’ll get a similar feeling. Click here to watch the tutorial.

RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection [Haul & Swatches]

The next installment of RiRi <3 MAC is here! I can’t contain my excitement over the gorgeous packaging. My friend and I met up at 6:30 AM at a local mall to line up at the MAC store that opened at 8:00 AM. We were practically foaming at the mouth over the collection and we definitely did not want to deal with the dreaded waiting room process when the collection launches on the MAC website (on Monday, September 30th at 12:00PM EST) so we showed up extra early. Too early in fact, since the mall was not even open yet. We killed some time until it opened and when we got back there were already some people waiting ( we were not alone lol). Our craziness paid off since we were able to score everything we wanted. Everything except the coveted Talk That Talk lipstick. Apparently that location must have gotten less than a handful, which led to a mad dash to other MAC stores.  Luckily we were able to get the hot item at our second stops (we split up lol) and just like that 10 lbs were lifted off of our shoulders. It was that serious! I advise that you are online at noon sharp or figure out what time your local MAC-carrying department store opens (the collection launches at counters on October 3rd) and line up ahead of time, ESPECIALLY if you want to get your hands on Talk That Talk. I predict it will be the first item to sell out. It is a fabulous vampy berry color, perfect for the cooler months ahead.
