The NastyGal x M.A.C Cosmetics collab was one I’ve been waiting for for a long long time!

Partially because I’m a fan of NastyGal and LOVE their excellent customer service, and partially because… of THAT blue lipstick.

When I set my eyes on the collection, I was like, “I GOTTA HAVE THAT LIPSTICK!” And I was even more stoked to find out that it matched the color of my Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir in Amethyst perfectly!

Without any more rambling, here you go!

“M·A·C partners up with vintage clothing icon, Nasty Gal, in a fierce collection of shades that are as daring and dramatic as the #GIRLBOSS herself, Sophia Amoruso. Deep purple, sultry red and lush burgundy Lipsticks pair perfectly with a killer Nail Lacquer. This season, style has attitude.”

The NastyGal collection is a small one, consisting of just 4 items – but all super eye-catching and promises you a load of attention:

  • M.A.C Studio Nail Polish in Flaming Rose
  • M.A.C Matte Lipstick in Runner (rich burgundy)
  • M.A.C Matte Lipstick in Gunner (deep purple)
  • M.A.C Matte Lipstick in Stunner (bombshell red)

The lipsticks are $30 SGD each, and the nail polish is $23 SGD.

The NastyGal x M.A.C Cosmetics collection is slated to be released on 12th February 2015 (update from M.A.C: Date has been changed to 13th Feb!) across all Singapore M.A.C Counters and stores ; )
(The lipsticks went out of stock really fast on M.A.C online stores and on NastyGal’s online store!)

“Nasty Gal is about turning heads, and turning fashion its head–changing the game, and looking badass while doing it.
What better way to declare you mean business than with bombshell red lipstick (and a corner office with your name on it)”

What a gorgeous, true red this is! I’ve always preferred reds without any orange tones in it and this one was perfect. Plus matte. LOVE!

“Entrepreneurship is for hustlers only—you have to make people want what you’re selling and it’s competitive as hell.
As Sophia says, ‘When dealing in vintage, you never reveal your source.’ Lucky for you, we’re letting you in on this little secret—
to get what you want, sometimes getting loud and lippy (while rocking the perfect shade of violet) is mandatory.”

Surprisingly, this color went on like a dream. And boy, did it attract attention! It’s a little glossy here because I applied lip balm underneath it. Still gorgeous.
I keep trying to find opportunities to wear this baby out…

“Sophia ran away from convention, capitalism and the suburbs, an adventure that caused her to eventually run smack into something she did want—
Nasty Gal, and the perfect shade of bordeaux for the boardroom.”

This shade had one of the worst application for me. It could be because I have chapped lips and plenty of lip lines, but the problems don’t seem to surface on the other two colors. Still, if you don’t look at it up close like in this picture, it is a stunning deep wine red and probably can be coaxed into perfection with a lot of lip love prior to application.

M.A.C Lacquer in Flaming Rose is a bright red polish which is probably every Singapore Airline Stewardess' delight.

With the exception of Runner which I wanted to like very much, this entire collection is possibly one of my favorite so far! Even though it only has 4 items hahaha.

Must buy of the collection? Gunner. It’s beautiful on its own (not patchy or anything) and can be used to make a red lipstick more purplish etc, basically you can mix it with other colors to make the darker or more purple!

... and I did just that for Yina's wedding! Mixed it with a pink here so that it's not so purple but I guess it's still rather shocking to see a purple lipped person walking around. I'm also dressed in a Nasty Gal dress which was unfortunately banned from ever being worn again by my husband, haha.
