MAC Dita Von Teese Lipstick: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
In the recent months, MAC seemed to have had a ton of celebrity collaborations and the Dita Von Teese partnership definitely received a lot of buzz. Well known for her burlesque work, Dita Von Teese has teamed up with MAC for a special Von Teese Lipstick ($21.50 CAD) to celebrate the release of her Your Beauty Mark book. To see some swatches of this "vivid tomato red", click........

The Von Teese Lipstick comes in a gorgeous shiny black tube that feels a lot sleeker than the classic MAC Lipstick packaging. The tube is embossed with "Von Teese" in red and the lipstick bullet itself is also etched with the same letterings.

Despite the lacquer-like finish of Dita's lips in the ad promos, the Von Teese Lipstick is actually fairly matte. The red is a nice and bright with a slight pink undertone; it's a really flattering and pretty color but not the most unique red I've seen. With that said, the formulation is just perfect; it's pigmented, rich, and creamy. Although this is a matte, the lipstick isn't too drying or uncomfortable and the wear is fabulous as well!
