The collection featured lipsticks, lipglass, ombré blushes, mascaras, eyeliners, eye shadow palettes and nail lacquers.

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. Hope you all liked my swatches, LOTD and this full red lipstick comparison post.
