This past week, after much technological frustration, I was finally able to upload my March 2012 Hits and Misses video. Sometimes, as much as I love my gadgets, I still feel like throwing them against a wall.
What I forgot to include in the video, however, was one of my favorite lipsticks EVER that just so happens to be limited edition. I want to make sure I talk about it while there are still some available if you want to grab yourself one (or four), too.
Love these little things.
MAC's Oh Oh Oh, from the MAC Me Over Collection
Oh Oh Oh is a beautiful color! It’s a Lustre finish, which means that it’s sheerer than the other finishes, but is still very buildable. The bullet looks much more brown-ish red than it really is. Let’s check out some swatches, shall we?
One swipe on the top, built up to more opaque coverage on the bottom.
Oh Oh Oh almost has a golden raspberry thing going on, which I hesitate to say because “raspberry” is not usually a color I can comfortably wear. It’s definitely warm-toned, but I almost think cooler tones could wear it without issue.
The lighting here is a little bit warmer, but I included it for your reference. 'Cause ya know, I'm here for you.
And on my lips…
Naked lips. (Not recommended for children under the age of 17.) (HA!)
Ooo, la la!
I love this color!!! I don’t typically wear darker colors on the daily, but with Oh Oh Oh, I feel like I can rock some color on my lips without feeling “done up”. It’s not a high-maintenance color, either. You can apply this without a mirror and not look like the Joker from Batman afterwards.
For some people, MAC’s Lustre finishes are drying, but for me, they’re really easy and comfortable to wear. I wouldn’t say they’re great moisturizers, but I definitely don’t have issues with them.
More color referencing. (And fun.)
I’ve been wearing this with Wet ‘n Wild’s Nutty and MAC’s Satin Taupe primarily. And again, I’ve been wearing this A LOT over the past month. Maybe a tutorial coming up?
So what do you think? Is this something you would wear? If you want to get your lips on some of this, you may want to order soon. It’s been on the website for a while now, and soon you may only be able to find it at a CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet). Grab your tube of Oh Oh Oh here.
