Hello Beauties,

I am one of those who can never have enough lipsticks.So today i will be reviewing about the new baby i have in my collection,and i totally adore it.Yes,i will be talking about the shade Victoriana from the MAC Isabel and Ruben Toledo collection,They launched this collection in the end of April here and the first thing that drew me to this was its packaging.I LOVE LOVE LOVE HOW CUTE ALL THE STUFFS OF THIS COLLECTION LOOKS.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION: Isabel is known for her impeccable design style and also designing Michelle Obama’s 2009 inaugural dress. Ruben is a renowned artist and his style is definitely iconic. The pair teamed up to design this exclusive collection that features white packaging and Ruben’s graphic style. With red lips throughout. A fun and bold collaboration that will get any make up junkie excited!

Ruben Toledo fell in love with Isabel when he was 13 years old! MAC celebrates their romance and brilliance sense of style with a new MAC Toledo Makeup Collection that’s a collaborated work between Isabel and Ruben Toledo. This collection is bursting with color and energy making it a perfect pick for spring looks!

ABOUT THE SHADE VICTORIANA: Victoriana is described as a mid tone pink-red with a matte finish.You can call it a pinkish red with cool undertones.The texture is smooth thus the application was even and easy.It is highly pigmented and lasts for quite a long time.Its not super dry or flaky.

PACKAGING: When it come to MAC limited collections you expect something different with the packaging and this one was no exception.As i told u earlier its the packaging that drew me towards this initially(I’m one of those person who likes cute looking makeup).The bullet is white in colour unlike the usual black ones and its really chic.

MY TAKE ON THE SHADE VICTORIANA: If you are a fan of red lipsticks then you will surely adore this shade.Its quite different from all the shades i own.Its a beautiful pinkish red with cool undertones and looks extremely flattering.Im sure it would compliment almost all skin tones.Though it is matte it is not so drying like other super matte lipsticks from MAC like Ruby Woo.Its highly pigmented and gives a beautiful finish after applying.The staying power too is very descent.It stayed on me for a good 6hours with light snacking.After which it left a beautiful reddish stain which was again very pretty according to me.I went to see Kolkata Knight riders play at eden gardens with victoriana on and it stayed on me throughout the match  in all that heat and everything(and kkr won too)
