Now, let me just tell you, I am a fan of the red lip. I believe that a red lip holds an invitation to all occasions and events and ladies, please start rocking those red lips more often! SO, when MAC brought out their lip palettes I just fell IN LOVE with this palette, unsure of which red to choose? Choose them all! Plus for £35 (a single mac lipstick retailing at £14) you can not really go wrong! Mac has also brought out 4 other Pro Lip Palettes; 6 Preferred Pinks, 6 Editorial Oranges, 6 Select Plums and 6 Modern Browns. However, looking at the palettes online, the colours do not seem quite universal, some shades being either too light for certain skin tones however I believe that this palette would look great on all skin tones!


Details? The palette contains 6 different shades and finishes.
Lady Danger (Matte) - a coral-red
On Hold (Cremesheen) - mid-tone yellow raspberry
Russian Red (Matte) - intense blue-red
Mac Red (Satin) -  bright blue-red
Ruby Woo (Matte) - vivid (orangey, if possible?) blue-red
Dare You (Cremesheen) - deep brown red

I already have the classic Russian Red and the very wearable On Hold (which I find to be a little bit more pink than red). I can not WAIT to try Ruby Woo, which is perhaps the most daring red in the palette as, similar to Russian Red, it does hold an almost orange tone and is super matte! What is best though, is being able to customise your own red or creating editorial looks such as ombre lips! Here are some swatches...
