MAC By Request 2014


Meet Pink Poodle and Glam, the 86th and 87th addition to my monstrous MAC lipstick collection!

'By Request' is a brilliant little marketing scheme from MAC where fans of their facebook page can vote for their favourite discontinued lipstick, lipglass and eyeshadow shades to make a one time re-appearance before disappearing forever.



Lipsticks are my thing (in case you hadn't realised) and I bagged two of the three shades.  I would have liked the third but it was sold out-having said that 'Hoop' has been likened to the also limited edition 'Betty Bright' which I do own!

The lipsticks come in the traditional black and silver bullet with the familiar vanilla scent.  I guess any scent becomes familiar when you own 87 sticks of it!


First up Glam-a matte vivid pink toned red.  I got compliments in the office when I wore this yesterday and the colour is divine but the problem is I own 3 or 4 shades which are almost identical-Dior Minuit (LE), Chanel La Precieuse (LE), Mac Red and Nars Luxembourg.

It's a tricky one to know whether to stick into my next blogsale or not because the colour is amazing and really brightens the face and the formula isn't too drying for a matte although I did place a dab of vaseline over the top after I photographed the swatch below.



Next up is Pink Poodle.  When I opened it I was like 'oh dear I will never pull that off' as it is literally neon in the bullet.  But because it is a 'glaze' formula it actually looks fab on and is less in your face than the bullet.

An almost lilac toned fuchsia pink.  I have nothing like it in my collection and I am so glad I now own this lipstick!  It just makes me feel like I want to wear it all the time!  The glaze formula feels quite syrupy on the lips and leaves a glossy finish-just perfect for summer.


These lipsticks are limited edition and exclusively online so snap them up whilst you have time!
