RiRi ♥ MAC Lipsticks in Pleasure Bomb & RiRi Woo

MAC's RiRi Hearts Holiday collection was launched on the UK MAC website on Tuesday 10th December. I fell in love with these lipsticks weeks ago when I first saw the press release photos and luckily I was able to purchase them both online, which was a miracle considering Pleasure Bomb sold out in about ten minutes! The packaging is beautiful, the traditional MAC lipstick bullet has been transformed from the classic black into a festive pearlescent white, with rose gold detailing. "RiRi ♥ MAC" is scrawled across the lid of the tube and "RiRi" is engraved into the actual product itself, so this would be great for Rihanna fans! 

The first lipstick  I bought is in the colour Pleasure Bomb, which is a bright fuchsia shade. Girl About Town, also from MAC, is fuchsia and it's one of my all-time favourite lipsticks, so I knew i'd get a lot of wear out of this one. It has a matte formula, so I was a little concerned as I have quite dry lips at the moment, but I tried this out with a layer of Vaseline underneath and it felt fine.
The second is RiRi Woo. RiRi Woo has been released numerous times now and as this is Rihanna's last collaboration with MAC I thought it was about time I got my hands on it! I have wanted a red MAC lipstick for a while and this one is a deep, classic red with cool undertones. It is a slight variation on MAC's coveted "Ruby Woo" lipstick, but this one has a retro matte formula, meaning it can be drying, but has great staying power. 

There was another lipstick shade released in this collection, Bad Girl RiRi, but it is a brownish taupe nude and I didn't think it would suit my skintone, so I passed on that one. I'm so happy that I managed to get these lipsticks as not only is the packaging to die for, they're amazingly pigmented and i'm really excited to start wearing them.
Unfortunately these lipsticks, as well as the rest of the collection, sold out online extremely quickly, but you might still be able to pick these up at MAC counters or at a MAC store.

Did you manage to pick up anything from the collection?
