For this chic Fall mini-collection, MAC collaborated with Carine Roitfeld to create a collection centered around the smoky eye, of which she is known for.
What is a smoky eye look without a sheer, nude lip? This collections features only one lipstick in Tropical Mist, which has a Lustre finish.
What the MAC website has to say about Carine Roitfeld Lipstick:
Light and neutral with a polished, glazed finish, this exclusive Lipstick is custom-made to perfectly complement Carine Roitfeld's dramatically intense smoky eye looks. Limited edition.
3 g / 0.1 US oz
Tropical Mist is described as a sheer, translucent nude. A very sheer, peachy beige. It's almost SO sheer that it looks like you're wearing nothing more than a balm. This shade is perfect for an uber smoky eye, but with the price point I think consumers will probably shy away because it doesn't really do much more than a chapstick.
On a personal note, I am happy with this purchase, because this is the type of lip product I go for. It has a slight tint and, as I've said before, I'm a sucker for packaging. If I know I'm going to use a product up, the cost becomes a lot easier to swallow.
Because of this special packaging, this lipstick is a little more expensive than the ones in the regular tubes.
