I was lucky enough to test out three of the Iris Apfel for MAC lipsticks yesterday (unfortunately not lucky enough to buy any though – sold out!).

The Iris Apfel for MAC makeup collection is a MAC collection that I could actually get really excited about, the fabulous bright colours are right up my alley, so I was really keen to see how the colours translated from the MAC promo pictures to real-life.

I tested three of the Iris Apfel for MAC lipsticks and let me tell you in real-life they are amazing! They’re so bright, so creamy, so perfect!

The three colours I tested were:

  1. Iris Apfel for MAC Scarlett Ibis lipstick – a bright warm red lipstick
  2. Iris Apfel for MAC Pink Pigeon lipstick – a bright cool pink lipstick
  3. Iris Apfel for MAC Party Parrot lipstick – a bright warm pink lipstick

The picture above was taken in natural light, but not direct sunlight. My favourite is MAC Party Parrot lipstick – it’s amazing!

Here’s a picture of all three Iris Apfel for MAC lipstick swatches in direct sunlight, so you can see them in a different light.

So I missed out on the Iris Apfel MAC lipsticks, but I did manage to nab the Iris Apfel for MAC Oriele Orange nail lacquer, which I will use as soon as humanly possible and post the results!

Did anyone actually manage to get any of the lippies?
