MAC Dita Von Teese Lipstick


Hi dolls,

Hope you had a jolly Christmas and that you enjoyed/are enjoying your holidays! Santa was very generous and gave me some Elvis memorabilia (will show you another time), books and MAC's new Dita Von Teese lipstick! Grazie mamma ;)

It's a well known fact that red lipstick is a lady's best friend and an absolute must-have item for a pin up girl. You can get away with no eyeliner and no blush but the lips must be painted red darlin'! The other day I took some selfies and thought ''Ugh. I don't look retro at all. I look so blah.'' Obviously it was because I had forgotten to put on my red lipstick!! I know, I know, you have to be happy in your own skin, but a little red lipstick never killed anyone. Well, certain shades do knock 'em dead....

Speaking of such shades, as described on MAC's official site, this recently launched, Dita Von Teese lipstick is ''a vivid red lipstick for the seductive spirit.'' Here is the lovely packaging; half of Dita Von Teese's beautiful face 
is on the box and her signature is engraved on the actual lipstick:

In these pictures, for some reason, the lipstick looks almost brick red or orangey but in reality it has a pinkish-red hue to it. My skin tone is olive but I think this color lipstick will suit most skin tones. It's very flattering, both shade-wise and texture-wise. It's a matte lipstick so I'm impressed by how creamy and smooth the consistency is and how long lasting this is on my lips, without drying them. Unlike some lipsticks, this one enhances the shape of your lips!

Ciao bambole,

Spero che abbiate trascorso un felicissimo Natale. Vi auguro ancora Buone Feste! Io ho ricevuto dei bei regalini, incluso questo nuovo rossetto ''rosso vivo'', chiamato Dita Von Teese, di MAC (grazie, mamma! :)). E' un colore molto particolare, che sembra un po' arancione nelle foto ma che in realtà tende sul rosato. La bellissima Dita a creato questo rossetto insieme a MAC per ''spiriti  seducenti'' come indicato sul loro sito :D E infatti è un bel rosso retrò, che credo stia bene su quasi tutte le carnagioni. Pur essendo matte, soprendentemente la consistenza è cremosa e non ha per niente seccato le mie labbra! Inoltre, la duratura è ottima. Ho provato numerose espressioni e sono arrivata alla conclusione che questo rossetto mi piace molto. Sayonara labbra ''nude''! 


******************************************************

There, I tried out all sorts of expressions and have come to the conclusion that I really like this Dita Von Teese lipstick by MAC. It's a glamorous, retro shade of red that is noticeable but not over-the-top and it's definitely not a trampy red. Personally, I find it a wearable red lipstick, that you can put on during the day, and not only when you paint the town red at night. This lipstick and my Rimmel Mayfair Red Lady lipstick are going to be my staple tubes. Sayonara naked lips! 


Happy New Year everyone! Buon Anno a tutti!

  12. Ooohh, you lucky duck!!! I soooo want to get my hands on one of these fabulous tubes of Dita lipstick. Alas, there is no MAC store in my town and the shipping is a bit high for just one tube online, so I'm hopping I can get to a city with a MAC shop soon and - fingers crossed - pick up one myself.

    Joyful New Year's countdown wishes!!!
