Changes to Back 2 MAC (in Australia, at least….)

Yesterday, I found out that Back 2 MAC has changed 😦

I went to swap my 6 empties and now, instead of receiving any lipstick in regular packaging (including Limited Editions), I was limited to the top 20, listed below.  Thankfully, I wanted Rebel, but boo MAC!

Here’s the list,  with links to swatches…..

Vegas Volt
Lady Danger
Ruby Woo
Russian Red
Hug Me
Shy Girl
Crème d’ nude
Pretty Please
Crème Cup
St Germain
Girl About Town

Shop MAC – Dish It Up Lipstick and Scan-delicious Kissable Lip Color


The MAC Shop and MAC Cook collections hit my local counter a week early.  I picked up Scan-delicious and Dish It Up.  Both collections are gorgeous, and I would have brought more but I’m trying to save for a USA trip later this year.  I was really tempted by the tendertones, but I hate lipgloss in jars, it’s so messy!

There’s no special packaging with these, just a cardboard sleeve over the usual black boxes.

Scan-delicous is a kissable lip colour, which is a limited edition product.  I wish it were permanent! It’s a lovely formula, not sticky but still a little glossly and feels creamy and smooth on the lips.  Scan-delicious is a lovely rasberry shade – a cool reddy pink.

Dish It Up is a lustre lipstick.  It’s really pigmented (a lot more than flamingo) and a lovely pinkish purple.  In the tube it looks a lot like plumful, but as you can see by the swatch after the jump, plumful is more red, and Dish It Up has a much smoother texture.

Now on to the swatches…
