MAC Posh Paradise Mattenes Review & Swatches

MAC Posh Paradise recently launched ten new and limited edition Mattenes. I am usually not a big fan of matte lipsticks. In fact, the only matte lipsticks in my collection are Russian Red and Candy Yum-Yum. However, I decided to try a couple of Mattenes because I’ve heard great things about them, and the two shades that really caught my attention are Deliciously Forbidden and Rare Exotic.

Deliciously Forbidden is a midtone rosy berry pink. It’s a lovely shade that’s universally flattering. (Sorry… my lips were so dry…)

Rare Exotic is a bright fuchsia pink. This one’s hot hot HOT!

I think these shades are both fantastic and outstanding. I wouldn’t call these matte. They’re more of a semi-matte. The texture is light, smooth, and creamy. They apply beautifully and provide an opaque color coverage. The formula has great lasting power without drying out your lips. I wish MAC would make these permanent!

Are any of you getting anything from this collection? What’s on your list? Have you tried MAC Mattenes yet? How do you like them?
