Mac Philip Treacy collection just launched couple weeks ago and it seems this collection didn’t even cause an internet buzz. One of Mac’s underdog collections. I only picked up Mac Blue Peep Fluidline (reviews soon) and Mac Hollywood Cerise Lipstick from the collection. Those are the only 2 which caught my eye as I find these 2 unique. Today, I’ll review Mac Philip Treacy Hollywood Cerise Lipstick. Initially, I thought it be something I already owned or a dupe-able color. Evidently, I can’t find a twin shade but only a close cousin. I don’t wanna sound like an old cassette tape on repeat, but this is actually a nice staple in every makeup lover’s drawer.
Mac Philip Treacy Hollywood Cerise Lipstick is characterized as a magenta berry with a satin finish. It appears on me as a neutral bright berry with fuchsia undertones and a satin finish. There is a little drag of this satin lipstick that it feels semi-matte than satin. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula. It went on for almost 5.5 hours of wear on me and left a fuchsia stain within the next 2 hours. It is strongly opaque and incredibly lightweight. I am quite surprised with how the texture feels on my lips. Not your usual satin lipstick from Mac. It leveled up.
The Bottom Line:
Mac Philip Treacy Hollywood Cerise Lipstick is a long wearing, lightweight satin berry lipstick from Mac. I’m also surprised it is currently in stock. I think a lot of makeup enthusiasts are tired with Mac releasing limited edition shades that are exactly akin with the permanent ones. My dupes include: Mac Fashion Revival, Tom Ford Violet Fatale, Too Faced Melted Berry, Mac Flat Out Fabulous, Mac No Faux Pas and Guerlain Gladys. Like what I’ve said before, I can’t find exact dupes. My husband even complimented that this color is very “professional looking”. By the ways, I’m wearing hair extensions on this look which I’ve been rocking for the past couple of weeks now. It’s only 4 inches longer than my genuine hair and I’m only after for an extra volume it gives. I even ordered a longer one and I just can’t wait to try them out. Were you interested in the Mac Philip Treacy collection or you thinking it is a huge skip?
Just added side by side comparison with Chanel La Romanesque.
