Mac Toledo Collection expresses the love for the arts for Isabel and Ruben Toledo. What I have observed from this collection, aside from their artwork of course, the lipsticks are mostly shades of red and the Eyeliners / eyeshadow palettes are fashion forward colors. Well, I only got interested in 2 lipsticks from this collection: Mac Oxblood and Mac Barbecue. I skipped the ombre eyeshadows because no matte how nice they photographed, the swatches I’ve seen are not too convincing to show up on my skin. That’s money saved for me! Allow me to share my thoughts on Mac Oxblood lipstick, the very first one that sold out and the only nude among the reds. I understood the art inspiration where this color came from, but the thought of calling it Oxblood still won’t sink into my head. It’s a peach beige not an Oxblood color. Maybe ox hide perhaps? Haha.

Mac Toledo Collection Oxblood is characterized as a light peachy nude with a matte finish. On my lips, it appears as a warm mid tone peach beige with a matte finish. It lasted for about 4 hours of wear on me. Not that exceptionally long wearing for a matte beige lipstick. The formula and texture are pretty consistent with other Mac matte lipsticks I’ve tried. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula. Never feathered, turned patchy and got a minor transfer. Since it is a matte lipstick, lip prep is always a must. I love the Toledo signature on a rubberized tube packaging which comes handy for my lipstick not to roll over the countertops. The downside is, it’s white so it holds the tendency in attracting lint.

The Bottom Line:

Mac Oxblood is a pretty peach nude color that doesn’t wash me out. However, it’s not that unique and can be very easy to duped. The tube is very pretty to be added to ones collection. But if you are after for unique shades, this should be a pass. The quality is actually pretty good though, no wonder this is the first ones to sell out. If you haven’t owned any of the following dupes: Mac Enchanted One, Mac Honeylove, Mac Pander Me, Mac Yash and Too Faced Melted Nude, might as well grab this. Nevertheless, I expected more of fashion forward lipstick colors from this collection but I’m disappointed that they are predominantly reds. Mac also has the tendency to either repromote or re-named a color. I am kind of hoping there will be unique shades to get released from the brand in the future. Were you interested with the Mac Toledo Collection?

    I’m so glad I came to your page. I bought Oxblood Lipglass but was thinking of buying the lipstick from a blog sale. Saw your swatches and I’m going to B2M and get Pander me!

      Pander Me is definitely one of Mac’s best nudes!
