Swatches and LOTDs
MAC x Isabel and Ruben Toledo collection is a collaboration with fashion and illustration designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo. Ruben designed the special white packaging, which also has a smooth matte finish Bullet isdesigned white, black and red with a very cool modern graphic feel. Loving it a lot!






Opera is a matte deep red. Its a gorgeous shade and being a red lipstick fan myself, I am totally loving all the 3 shades  I picked



Tenor Voice is a more of a classic red, but has a hint of an orange undertone. Initially, I had doubts on whether it will suit me or not. But, I totally love this shade on me. Its perfect for Indian skintones.


Victoriana is a medium vibrant red with hints of pink, cool undertones and a matte finish. The formula is slightly creamy, smooth, fully opaque and pigmented. The color applied evenly and didn’t drag during application. This shade wore well for more than 6 hours and left behind a stain.




I absolutely loved the shades and I get a wear time of 6-7 hours with these 3 lipsticks.

I am swatching all my red lipsticks for you to get an idea of other MAC red shades that are possible dupes of this collection that has not launched in India yet.IMG_7114  Hope you all liked my swatches, LOTD and this full red lipstick comparison post.

Which is your favorite shade from MAC x Isabel and Ruben Toledo Collection?
