Mac Iris Apfel Collection in Store in Pune and my Chotu Haul


I think it was approximately four to five months back that I had seen the pictures of the Iris Apfel collection which launched last year in stores worldwide. Featuring four limited edition lipsticks and some amazing eyeshadows and nail colors this collection was supposed to be a big hit and it was. An hour after it was launched the lipsticks in the collection were sold out..How cool is that. I don’t think I have been so excited about any Mac collection since Venomous Villains and Surf Baby. Anyways after lots of waiting and saving and waiting some more (phew!!!), the collection finally launched in the Mac Pune store last week.




Except Flamingo (a light coral pink lippi) the other LE lipsticks are there which includes Pink Pigeon, matte dark pink, Party Parrot, an intense reddish pink and Scarlet Ibis a beautiful orange red. The collection also includes the bright matt orange called Morange, a permanent color. Except Flamingo all the lipsticks are matte finish. The Pune store did not have the LE lipliners and I could just see Redd which is a permanent liner. The eyeshadows from the collection including Robin’s egg, Diamond Dove and Howzzat were there and I also spotted the beauty powder Too Chic in store. Since I was in a tearing hurry, I did not swatch all the colors. I just picked up the thing I had been waiting for so long which is the Scarlet Ibis lipstick.




This red coral lipstick is just beautiful. Apart from the color the matte formula of all the lipsticks is very, very good. It is smooth, creamy and does not settle into fine lines. Totally worth the hype I believe. For all you fairer girls out there please go get Party Parrot. That is the color that is worth looting a bank for (in my case my hubby J). Unfortunately on my dark skin it looked like a bright neon pink rather than a watermelon pink. As an end note I have to say that I am totally awed by the woman behind this collection, Iris Apfel. This 90 year old fashion icon is certainly the “rare bird of fashion”.
