I still haven’t finished introducing you to the MAC Shadescents collection! With Valentine’s Day zooming up fast and furious, I wanted to recommend a duo that’s perfect for gifting, or for dressing yourself up on date-night. MAC Ruby Woo contains a key note of sexy deep red leather that is simply smoldering!  If you’re looking to turn heads, this scent is the equivalent of 4″ red stilettos.

That warm cuddly neutral you want to snuggle up with this winter?

A great neutral lipstick is a staple for most women, a “better than natural” addition to a daytime look. Similarly MAC Shadescents in Crème D’ Nude is absolutely intended to get you thinking of sexy, bare skin.  This scent contains Amber Musk, and if I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times: MEN LOVE AMBER.  The overall affect is a sexy natural musk scent.

MAC Shadescents My Heroine

MAC Shadescents My Heroine

I was first introduced to MAC Heroine lipstick when it was part of the MAC Wonder Woman collection back in 2011 when the shade was actually a universal flattering bronze. Not really the power color you’d expect of the name. When the name Heroine was recycled as part of the MAC Reel Sexy collection, it was a completely different hue. The iconic bold purple you see here is Heroine 2.0, and the limited-edition shade was so popular it eventually made it’s way into the permanent MAC lipstick collection in 2014.

Heroine lipstick is an extremely vivid purple that has with cool undertones and a matte finish. The color is not for the bashful, and the coordinating MAC Shadescents in My Heroine is similarly powerful. To me the scent conjures up the image of a flapper at a speakeasy during the roaring 20s. The scent is woodsy with a touch of leather and tobacco.  It’s the scent of a woman who is in charge, likes to play with the boys, and embraces modernity.

MAC Shadescents fragrance retails for $57, and the coordinating lipsticks retail for $17.
