RiRi Hearts Mac Talk That Talk Lipstick & Liner

Hey there everyone, as many of you know the RiRi Hearts Mac collection has recently come out!!! Many of you may also know that this collection has been very coveted and because of that its been pretty difficult to get your hands on. I was able to grab the RiRi Woo lipglass and lipstick and the Bad Girl Gone Good Blush on September 26th when it launched in stand alone stores but my Mac store was all sold out of Talk That Talk. Luckily after spending around two hours online I was able to get my hands the Talk the Talk Lipstick and Pro Longwear Liner.

Now for a bit of a rant! I find that Mac's system for online shoppimg when a new collection comes out is absolutely terrible! Firstly Mac said that they would launch at 12:00 pm but for me it did not launch until 12:05 pm and as you may know before being able to actually purchase Mac puts you into an online waiting room, and you want to get into the waiting room ASAP because the longer you wait the longer the line just like in a store. My next problem was about 40 minutes in when the site crashed, I was so upset because I was ordering during lunch and it was almost time for me to go back to school. So I opened another browser and tried again and just as I was leaving the house I got onto the ordering page. I didn't think it would take very long so I continued on with my order, but boy was I ever wrong. It took another half an hour to process everything because the site was soooo slow and was loading at the pace of a snail!!! I was very annoyed, but anyways when I was all over I came out with the highly coveted Talk That Talk lipstick and lip liner.

Talk That Talk Lipstick $20.00 Canadian Talk That Talk Pro Longwear Lip Pencil $25.50 Canadian

I am absolutely in love with this colour! It is absolutely gorgeous, Talk That Talk is a very dark raspberry plum colour, and it is the shade that Rihanna actually wears in her promotional photo. Talk That Talk is a Retro Matte lipstick which means that it can be very drying on the lips, so I would recommend moisturizing your lips beforehand.

Also if you are like me and have dry and sometimes flakey lips you will have to have patience with this lipstick, I find that it will flake and gather to the centre of your lips if you are not careful. Also when re-applying this lipstick it is recommended that you remove the lipstick and then re-apply; now that may sound tedious but this lipstick is so long wearing especially with the liner that you won't have to apply very often, it could honestly last me all day if I wasn't constantly eating or drinking or messing around with my lips.
Anyways I am absolutly OBSESSED with this lipstick, I've only had it for around two weeks and its already very noticable that I've used it a lot (if only I had a back up ): ...) I know for sure that I will be monitoring Mac to see if they re-promote anything similar because I will snap it up in a flash along with a few others for some family members that are obsessed as well. And I also posted about RiRi's last and final collaboration with Mac; her holiday collection that releases around the 3rd week of December, so if you are addicted to RiRi like me keep your eyes peeled for that and you can check out that post here.
