Yes I am weak and bought all four lipsticks from the MAC Kelly Osbourne Collection but in my defence they were so, so pretty and oddly shades that I will wear fairly frequently. Annoyingly they have pretty much sold out everywhere but you might just strike it lucky at your local MAC counter...
Is it just me or does the MAC Kelly Osbourne packaging remind you of the Dame Edna collection from many years back? Of course I don't personally know Kelly but I can imagine that she would be a fan of Dame Edna and perhaps was inspired? Who knows! Either way the lilac cases are beautiful and stand out in amongst my vast MAC lipstick army. Each shade of course has the distinctive vanilla fragrance we all know and love (some more than others *cough* me *cough*).
Enough about lipstick cases, that isn't what you came to see! So yes new and limited edition shades one of which is based on a now cult MAC lipstick hue - MAC Candy Yum Yum. Over a year ago Kelly Osbourne rocked this shade and it was all us MAC fans could think about until it launched. Rumour has it that it quickly became a personal favourite of Kelly's too. The more you know eh? MAC Kelly Yum Yum is of course the shade based on Candy Yum Yum (CYY) but Kelly's version isn't as neon and is more blue based. I would say it is more wearable and less shocking than CYY - it kinda reminds me of a more shocking version of MAC Girl About the Town lipstick truth be told. MAC Kelly Yum Yum is satin in formula so it is long wearing and more hydrating than a matte lipstick. It has a slight sheen but is far from glossy.
My personal favourite from the collection has to be MAC Strip Poker which will undoubtedly draw comparisons to MAC Peach Stock but is by far pinker. A light, milky pink nude that is a great nude shade for light to medium complexions. In my opinion it is similar in shade to Lime Crime Coquette lipstick. MAC Strip Poker is a matte formulation but as it is not a retro matte it is not entirely flat nor drying, as silly as it may sound it has a little life due to the slight sheen and doesn't dry my lips out.
MAC Riot House is not a shade I would normally purchase but with the right make-up (deep, smoky eye) it looks great. A creamy almost pastel orange come peach shade that will excite all those who owned and loved the likes of MAC Playing Koi and Salute lipsticks in the past. I would never tell anyone not to purchase a product but I will state that the deeper your skin tone the more stark this shade becomes. This applies exactly like Strip Poker above as it is the same formulation.
The wild card of the quad has to be Dodgy Girl which I imagine you will either love or hate. A light, milky pink purple which I guess is somewhat similar to MAC Lavender Whip. If you wear a lot of purple toned lipsticks I'd suggest snapping this up, I like to apply this in the centre of my lips with a deeper purple pink lipstick (MAC Up the Amp) to create an ombre effect. Admittedly it won't get a lot of love and it is the shade I wish I didn't purchase in hindsight. Again this a matte lipstick but is fairly moisturising and has a slight sheen so it isn't a true matte.
Each lipstick cost £16.50 each - yeah I'm not loving the huge price increase MAC.
