Love this lip! It’s my first bright lip of spring! I’m so glad that winter is over, although it is trying its best to stick around long past its welcome!

Outer sleeve. How pretty is this??

I picked this up recently and it is part of the Isabel and Ruben Toledo collaboration with M.A.C. Don’t forget that Isabel Toledo made the green embroidered Inaugural dress suit that First Lady Michelle Obama wore in 2009. This is a full, artsy collection that includes eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, nails, makeup bag and coloured mascara.  I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so I picked up just one lipstick.

It’s matte, a little on the bright side. I could not resist another red lipstick in beautiful packaging!

Some pieces of this collection are still available in stores and online, but only until the beginning of April.

 

Did anyone else get anything from Toledo?
