Hi my wonderful friends….Today, I am reviewing a MAC Limited Edition Lipstick which’s part of MAC Styleseeker Collection 2012.
The shade which I am reviewing today is MAC Mattene Lipstick – Eden Rouge
Eden Rouge is a blue-based medium bright red with opaque color coveage and a natural sheen. This is officially going to be my first red lipstick ever from MAC. Its price is ($15.00 for 0.08 oz.).
I bought mine from Shalini of Be Beautilicious and thanks so much Shalini for giving this to me 🙂
Mattenes are supposed to deliver rich color, semi-matte finishes, and be hydrating and creamy to apply while still maintaining that semi-matte finish. Eden Rouge Exactly delivers what MAC claims. I am now wondering, why this is not part of their permanent collection.
These are very very creamy; easily glides on and yield opaque color coverage in a single stroke–Fragrance is similar to vanilla and come in slim matte black tubes and contain just a bit less product than regular MAC lipsticks. The slim tubes are just so easy to use too.

|Pretty, isn’t it?
Now, coming onto its comparison with Russian Red. I checked it myself in the store..
- Russian Red has a matte finish. Eden Rouge has the mattene finish, a mixture of satin and matte. Eden Rouge doesn’t dry out your lips.
- On closer inspection, one sees the Russian Red is more intense, even already dark. Eden Rouge is brighter and more tomatoish red.. Both, however, have blue undertone.
