Pedro Lourenço for M.A.C: Nude Quad, Ruby lipstick, Roxo lipstick – review, photos, swatches

Pedro Lourenco Collection

M.A.C limited edition collections. There are SO many of them, and I have to admit I don’t generally get as excited about them as I used to. Having said that, from the first time I laid eyes on the new Pedro Lourenço for M.A.C collection, I was in love. Everything about this collection screams sleek, classic and sophisticated, and I ...

Lime Crime D’Lilac

Lime Crime DLilac 2

As part of my recent IMATS Haul, I picked up a Lime Crime lipstick in the shade D’Lilac – I have played with plenty of Lime Crime products in the past, but never their lipsticks.
