Talking that Talk Beautifully: Talk that Talk Lipstick RiRi Fall 2013 Collection Review

I usually am not a sucker for collections from Mac especially since they release one every time you blink and eye, however I am a huge fan of Rihanna's style and music so decided to check this collection out (yes, yes groupie love lol).
This collection is called RiRi Hearts and includes four lipsticks, two eyeshadow quads, some lip liners, bronzers, blushes, eyeliners, and mascaras.
I am a huge blush girl and am currently in the market for some neutral eye shadows however I was a little disappointed in the collection because the colours looked more summery and the tones where not dark skin girl friendly to me. (crying inside)
There is so much hype over the collection but I decided that I was only interested in purchasing two lipsticks: RiRi Woo and Talk that Talk. I ended up skipping RiRi Woo because it looked way too similar to Ruby Woo to me. I ended up purchasing Talk that Talk lipstick.

My thoughts on Talk that Talk:

  • Talk that Talk is a deep dark rich plum with a retro matte finish (Mac's new Matte formula)
  • Gives an opaque finish on the lips and has great pigmentation and colour payoff
  • Formula is very dry on the lips so be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips well with a balm/ lip primer
  • Lipstick is slightly patchy so you may need to use a lip brush for even application 
  • Lipstick stains lips so lasts for hours even through eating and drinking
  • The lipstick comes in a beautiful rose gold box with Rihanna's signature and the packaging of the lipstick is beautiful with the same matching rose gold bullet
  • Talk that Talk is paired well with dark liners like Vino,  or Nightmoth 
  • Lipstick can be purchased at any free standing Mac store as of Sept 26th, online on Mac's website Sept 30th and all department stores Oct 3rd (there was a little confusion surrounding this)
  • Lipstick retails for $20 CAD (little more then lippies that are $18 CAD in regular package)
  • All in all I am in love with the lipstick and it is making a perfect debut in my fall lipstick collection 
  • I believe this is the most exciting lipstick in the entire collection
  • This lipstick shade is best suited for tan and dark skinned ladies
  • If you own Mac's Media, or OCC Black Dahlia lipstick they are very similar to each other (Black Dahlia is a bit more glossy and less matte/ as well as darker)
