There is absolutely everything I love about this collection. In this post I am reviewing two lipsticks from MAC x ZAC Posen Collection – DARLING CLEMENTINE, DANGEROUSLY RED
There are 3 lipsticks in this collection. Price – USD $18.00. The lipsticks are packaged in matte-finish grey colored square shaped packaging with gold tubes. The metal tends to show fingerprints but the finish is pretty awesome. Love it! Check all other products in this collection here

MAC x ZAC POSEN LIPSTICKS – DARLING CLEMENTINE, DANGEROUSLY RED – USD $18.00 each
MAC Zac Posen Lipstick -Dangerously Red is a bright fuchsia red with cool or blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It has excellent color payoff with a creamy consistency. It applied easily without bleeding on lips. The shade lasted for about about 7 hours on my lips and left behind a stain. Despite the matte formula, the lipstick was neither drying nor over hydrating. It didn’t make my lips super dry. This is one of my favorite fuchsia shade at present.
MAC Zac Posen Lipstick – Darling Clementine is a bright orange with warm/red undertones and and it has a matte finish. It has excellent color payoff in a single swipe and has a smooth consistency that glided easily on lips without pulling/tugging. It lasted for about 5 hours and was slightly drying. I had to touch up the lipstick after 5 hours or so as the formula started to fade a little and started to stain and settle onto the fine lines on my lips. I didn’t like this color on me. I am not a fan of oranges. If you like bright orange red shades- You will like this.
