FranknFurter, Oblivion, Sin, and Strange Journey are four of the limited edition MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Lipstick shades launching for Halloween/Fall 2014.
When you think of the Rocky Horror Picture Show I’m sure any number of things pop into your head! The Time Warp, Frank getting it on with everyone from his self made muscle man to Brad our reluctant heterosexual hero, and even good girl virgin Janet, and let’s not forget the epic motorcycle riding Meatloaf as Eddie (he also played Dr. Everett Scott in the play!).
Needless to say another epic thing that stands out from the film is all the lipstick! I’m positive the vampy lip look originated from Doctor Frank n Furter’s own stunningly dark, red lips.
The MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Lipstick shades celebrate all good things Rocky Horror to say the least.
Do take a look!
I only tried two of the four MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Lipstick but I will be hauling the others when they launch (MAC says they’ll be available online today and on counters October 2nd).
The lipsticks come housed in a glossy black barrel and feature the Rocky Horror Picture Show lips emblem on the bottom half of the tube. The outer packaging has the same design but also features an interior black and white design featuring characters from the film.

MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Lipstick Swatches (Sin and Strange Journey)
MAC Sin Lipstick was crazy difficult for me to apply. This is most definitely a lip brush lipstick experience. It tugs like crazy during application and has a very dry, matte finish. The rich, super pigmented color coverage is impressive but the formula and texture as a complete hassle in my opinion. It’s pretty much opaque easily enough but it also drags like a b*tch which in turn makes it look patchy and dry. The color, applied correctly, will last for several hours easily. I put it on at 5:30ish and it was still going strong until 2am! If you don’t mind the drier texture this super strong of blackened burgundy will create dramatic lip looks. It does require makeup remover to get off completely. But for those with drier lips? BEWARE!
MAC Sin Lipstick
MAC Strange Journey Lipstick is probably a nod to Columbia. This isn’t red but a bright autumn orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. Unlike Sin it was very creamy and glided on easily. The color wore strong for 7 hours and left a staining effect behind after the initial fading began. It wasn’t drying on my dry lips but it didn’t provide much in the way of moisture either. The color is very strongly pigmented and will provide opaque color on a single swipe.
MAC Strange Journey Lipstick
If you’re deciding on shades to purchase at this point I’d give Strange Journey a nice nod of approval but be careful with Sin! That’s one that I’d leave up to experts. It’s a hard formula to work with and a hard one to wear.
I’m looking forward to trying the other two MAC Rocky Horror Show Lipstick shades when they launch!
Which are on your wish list?
Or are you throwing in the hate and snagging all four?
