Hey everyone, today I have something very exciting to share with you!!!! I got my hands on some of the pieces from the new RiRi Hearts Mac Collection. Now as far as I know this collection has been released only at free standing stores here in Canada, so if you do want some makeup from this collection you still have a few more chances. The online release will be Thursday, October 3rd and it will have an "online waiting room" like last time, also all other Mac counters in stores like The Bay will be relesing RiRi Hearts on the 3rd as well. I am pretty sure that this applies for stores in the States as well, but I would still call my local Mac store and clarify this because I do not live in America so I'm not too sure of American release dates. Also if you do not get anything from this fall collection do not fret because Rhianna will be launching one last RiRi Hearts Mac Collection this Christmas season so keep your eyes peeled for that. Now that I've gotten all of that out of the way lets move onto the actual products...
So the packaging for this collection is BEAUTIFUL!!! Its a gorgeous rose gold with Rihanna's signature and the name of the collection in pink. Now I for one do not find that this packaging looks cheap like the Mac Archies Girl Collection that released earlier this year (which I still loved the packaging of btw) It looks a lot more high quality and luxurious. The only problem that I have with the packaging is that it is super prone to fingerprints but thats nothing that a quick wipe down can't fix.

The first product that I bought was of course RiRi Woo, I just couldn't not get it and I was waiting for it to come out in the special packaging too. RiRi Woo is a very beautiful cool toned red with a Retro Matte finish. I love this product but I find that if you have dry lips this lipstick will really show up the dryness, therefore since it is a very drying formula I would recommend using a lipbalm or lip primer underneath. Overall this lipstick is fantastic, its super flattering and the pigmentation is wonderful. I have a feeling that this will become one of my "go to" reds.

The next product that I picked up was the RiRi Woo lipglass. Again it is a cool toned red that is super pigmented, just like its lipstick counterpart. I actually like the lipglass a lot more than the lipstick because I am a person with super dry lips, so with the lipglass all of that dryness is hidden. There is one little con to this lipglass; since it is so pigmented it tends to get all over especially if your hair gets into it. I also find that it does bleed a litte so using a lip pencil would be a smart thing to do. Also there is one thing that I forgot to mention earlier, I find that since this is such a bold, cool red if your teeth are a bit yellow this lip colour makes the yellowness stand out a bit more (but that's nothing crest whitestrips can't fix ;)) Anyways I am head over heels in love with this product and I know that I will be wearing it a lot during the upcoming fall and winter seasons.

The last product that I picked up was the blush in Bad Girl Gone Good. I don't own any blushes like this so it was very welcomed into my collection. This blush is a bronzy, kind of dusty burnt orange colour. It has such a nice smooth texture, and Bad Girl Gone Good is in a satin finish. This is the type of blush that comes off very differently on other skin tones, on some skin tones it may come off as a more of a warm orange-y colour but on other skin tones it may come off as more of a brown like it does on me. Since I have a darker skin tone I find that it gives me more of a glow rather than an orange blush but I don't mind at all because I can wear this blush on days when I want to do bright lips or bright eyes. Overall I am very happy with this blush, if you are lighter in skintone this blush is very versatile because you can either wear it boldly or sheer it out but if you are darker in skin tone then this blush is going to be more of a subtle option, so keep that in mind if you want to purchase it.

Overally I was very pleases with the RiRi Hearts Mac Collection, the only thing that I didn't get that I really wanted was the Talk the Talk lipstick, but I still have a chance to get it on October 3rd. The packaging was adorable and this collection was made by one of my all time favourite celebrities RiRi. I know for sure that I will be keeping my eyes out for the final installment of the RiRi Hearts Mac Collection this Christmas and hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on a few more products.
Thanks for reading loves
