Today is about festive red lipsticks! Next up on my list is the MAC Enchanted Eve Red Lip Bag which includes MAC Lipstick in Pretty Irresistible, MAC Lipglass in A Favorite Flame, and MAC Lip Pencil in Beet.
Think of it as your one stop kit for creating perfectly flawless Holiday lips!
The MAC Enchanted Eve Red Lip Bag is one of several MAC Holiday 2015 Gift Sets for lips that includes three full size MAC Lip products at the value price of $39.50. If you purchased these items separately it would set you back about $50 so you save a few bucks purchasing the set plus you get a nifty little makeup bag as well.
I will say this, it’s not a value for me because I kinda toss the lip liner to the side. I’m not really a lip liner kinda girl and I very, very, very rarely use one and if I do it is typically a transparent one. So if you don’t use lip liner you might second guess a purchase of this set.
On that note, I have to say I love what’s inside.
First off you do get a slim line makeup bag that everything comes tucked up in. As you already know MAC includes cutesy makeup bags with all their Holiday offerings. I’d just like to throw it out there I find the bags hit or miss. This year it’s a miss for. I don’t like the design! It doesn’t really scream Christmas or Holiday to me. The bag is black with a 1980ish layered mirror design in metallic purple and blue. I’m just not into it. Both the barrel of the lipstick and cap of the lipgloss have the same design. What do you think of the design? Like it?
I might not love the packaging but I do love the contents (aside from the lip liner that is).
MAC calls Pretty Irresistible Lipstick a matte raspberry red. Honestly, it doesn’t look matte nor does it feel matte! It’s kinda a semi-matte balmy consistency with a cream-like texture that glides very nicely on lips with a hint of a sheen. I wouldn’t call it raspberry either! To me it’s a slightly warmer cherry red. It applies very well and wears on lips comfortably without being dry nor hydrating either. I can get about 4 hours from the shade before it fades at around hour five but in that time it didn’t migrate nor did it feather.
MAC A Favorite Flame Lipglass is a nice raspberry red with a hint of sparkle. It actually has really nice pigmentation with a wear of about three hours with a little bit of a tacky, sticky consistency.
These look great paired together! A Favorite Flame gives Pretty Irresistible a little lightness and a fair bit of shine and shimmer. They make the perfect Holiday lip look used together but they also work incredibly well when worn individually.
If you’re shopping Holiday red lipsticks I think you’ll be quite happy with the MAC Enchanted Eve Red Lip Bag!
