MAC RiRi Talk that Talk Lipstick?

MAC RiRi Talk that Talk Lipstick

Did you get caught up in the RiRi Hearts MAC stampede?
I did and lost out in a big way! 


Today the RiRi Hearts MAC Summer Collection launched within the UK at 12pm, I patiently sat on the MAC UK website refreshing the page like a mad woman to get my hands on the two new lipstick additions (I already own RiRi Woo) and the blush. At around 12.08 pm the collection went live and I placed my order as you may know MAC have been using a waiting room for the Rihanna collections which can take forever to put your products into your online basket. At 12.19pm my order finally placed but without one of the lipstick shades. Yep in the space of 11 minutes one of the lipsticks had seemingly sold out. I have no problem with products selling out - hey more power to the brand but 11 minutes is beyond insane and clearly indicates that the stock levels of MAC Heaux must have been staggeringly low! Excuse me while I quietly regroup and gather up my toys that I have thrown from my pram. I jest of course but 11 minutes must be a record of some sort? If you did get Heaux you are incredibly lucky and quick may I add haha!

Anyway this post isn't all doom and gloom if you are a fan of berry tones and hopefully the current ongoing Rihanna and MAC collaboration it may please you to know that Rihanna and internet speculation all indicate that a deep matte plum will be coming our way soon. At the moment no-one is truly sure when but Rihanna has hinted through the likes of Instagram that shade on her lips above will indeed be available to purchase in the coming months and may just be called Talk that Talk. A deep Autumnal plum with a hint of berry that is super sexy and matte, yes that will most certainly heal the wound and fill the Heaux shaped gap.
One thing that is for sure is that I am sat eagerly anticipating MAC RiRi Hearts Fall Collection.

Did you manage to get all you hoped for from the MAC RiRi Hearts Summer Collection?
I truly can't believe that the collection sold out (minus RiRi Woo) within the first hour and a half!

    1. I'm gutted I missed out but impressed by how quickly it sold out! I honestly don't think I've ever seen any collection MAC or otherwise sell out so quickly.

  3. I decided against Riri boy at the last second. Ordered Riri woo, Heaux and the Barbados girl drops. I waited about 7 minutes and managed to get them all plus the empty quad I had in basket before hand, guessing I probably wouldn't be able to add it later.
    I'm suprised it sold out so quickly, clearly MAC underestimated their customers interest.

    1. You are so lucky :) I had nothing in my basket what so ever and I really am baffled to how I missed out. Ah well it's not like I'm short on lipstick haha ;). Yes I don't think they anticipated it being the must have colour truth be told.

  4. I wanted all three lipstick shades and only saw the new collection around 12.40...of course Heaux had already sold out! But I did get the two others and it only took a couple of minutes. So I guess I got lucky!

  5. Mega annoyed about Heaux though! I was waiting, refreshed and everything, but I was on my iPhone and the website kept playing up. I could have got it if MAC fixed their website. I hope it comes again in her next collection because it's a beautiful colour. On MAC's US website they said for Heaux you can order it and they'll ship it mid-july so hey there maybe hope! I ordered Riri Woo instead because I didn't get it the first time and I don't have Ruby Woo. Phew this is long! Xx

    1. I know it is of little comfort but the normal website was no different so at least you know it wasn't down to the internet. Oh really, I bet it is part of the fall collection in that case...good spy work there ;) haha!

  6. I kind of don't get the whole hoohah surrounding the RiRi collections. I've seen better in the collections that have already been released. And the Heaux lipstick looks exactly like a matte version of Rebel! It's easy enough to matte a lipstick with some loose translucent powder.

    1. I want to say I'm with you but I'm afraid I am well and truly bitten by the MAC RiRi buy which is odd as i'm not a fan of her in any other sense. That is very true and I have been admiring Rebel for quite some time so maybe it is time to take the plunge? x

  8. I was constantly refreshing the page at 12pm and didnt see anything until 12:07.. I then added Heaux, Riri Boy and Hibiscus Kiss into my basket (and then did the same with another web browser). 15 minutes later, my first browser had added all three items along with THREE RiRi Woos.. Seeing as I already purchased RiRi Woo when it came out the first time, I removed the three RiRi Woos and was informed that Heaux was sold out. I then clicked over to my other browser, I saw that Heaux had been sold out. Sad times. (But Im glad Im not the only one, hehe).

    1. It took forever didn't it, if you ask me they had less than 100 Heaux lipsticks as twitter and is full of others missing out as is make-up forums. The sad thing is I'm willing to bet that most will flog theirs on eBay rather than genuinely want to own it. A comment above has said that the US site has hinted that it may be back in July so who knows we just get lucky :)

  9. I did get mine here in The Netherlands, plus back ups for both of the 2 new shades.
    I didnt think it would sell out that quick, but Im very happy luck was on my side this time :)

  10. I managed to get Heaux and was so pleased! Looked the best out of the lipstick shades to me. Such a shame that so many missed out :-( like you said there can't have been many at all. And shame on MAC for it taking ages to go live, I just thought my laptop wasn't working!! xx

  11. Woh, that's insane! Seriously they can't have thought it through in terms of stock or something. The beauty world is a mad place at the best of times!

  13. I too am nursing a wound that I wasn't lucky enough to get my hands on Heaux. I managed to get my hands on riri woo & riri boy though. Not bad for an iPhone & considering I was I using it on the sly whilst at work!

  15. Totally forgot about 12 noon, so I missed out on Heaux at 12.48, fair enough. So I was left to choose between riri woo and riri boy, woo all the way :P
    I wonder if they restock Heaux any time soon, or in couple of months time...
