MAC Oblivion lipstick from the Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection

Good Morning Lovelies!

Today to get into the true Halloween spirit, I thought I would share with you a special MAC lipstick to get you ready for the spooky season. The lipstick which does just that, is MAC Oblivion! This is their new lipstick from the Rocky Horror Picture Show collection. There are 3 other lipsticks in this range too, but they're selling like hotcakes. 

MAC Oblivion Lipstick

I must admit I wasn't overly taken or excited on hearing the news of this release, but then I saw it in store, tested the lipsticks out, and then I was completely sold. 

The packaging is really unique and eye catching itself! It has the lips on the front of the packaging which is definitely very fitting for a red lipstick! 

Oblivion itself is a medium red lipstick described as being vivid with blue undertones. When swatched and worn it comes off a lot pinker on me than I thought it would. It appeared to be  a raspberry kind of shade, which I was a little bit surprised at as I wouldn't have guessed that the blue undertones would turn it out like this. As I completely love wearing these kind of pink tones, this shade is perfect for me. 

Also as Oblivion is an Amplified Creme lipstick the finish is lovely, it's extremely moisturising and leaves lips looking soft and full and you get a little shine on the finish too. I found Oblivion to be very long lasting which is always a bonus for a lipstick wearer!

Overall I love this lipstick release, the shade is great for me, it's a red which can be worn without being too shocking. It's still relatively understated but you definitely know it's there! However the one thing I would say is that it's not particularly unique. There are probably a few lipsticks out there which would be perfect dupes. I'll just have to have a little lipstick shop, swatch and hunt for them.

Have you tried this lipstick or do you plan on trying any lipsticks from the Rocky Horror picture show collection?

  1. I love this shade! I wish I could buy it but Mac is a little expensive for me! I do love this red/pink colour though. x x

    1. It is pretty, I'm still looking for a dupe, but if I find one I'll let you know! x

  2. You're right - this shade is bright, but still subtle and good for everyday wear. I agree on it looking a bit pink. I don't normally go for reds with blue undertones, but I think I might hit the testers at Mac to see if this would be a good red to buy.

    Thanks for the post!
