LIPSTICKS FULL DESCRIPTION

Even though I already have too many more lipsticks than I could count, when I saw the lipstick packaging of MAC's Snow Ball Collection, I knew that I just got to have ém. It's the prettiest Holiday Collection so far in my honest opinion. Not to mention, the colors are stunning!
MAC Rouge En Snow
When I saw this red shade online, I have bee so tempted to buy it. Honestly, I had been debating inside my head back and forth, do I need it? Do I want it? But I have too many red lipsticks already!
Anyway, Christmas is coming anyway and the packaging is a limited edition soooo why not right?
Rouge En Snow is an apple red shade with a matte finish according to the MAC website.
It's highly-pigmented although based on observation, it takes one and a half coat to achieve a even fully-opaque color on the lips. It feels non-drying and light on the lips. I like that the color is bright enough which flatters my skin tone.
At first, it kinda looks exactly alike with MAC Ruby Woo but this one is brighter, kind of pink-based than blue-based, and the matte finish of RES has a bit of sheen while RW has a totally flat retro matte finish.
Currently, this is my FAVORITE lipstick, I have been using this everyday since I got it! Even with minimal makeup on, just a swipe of this lipstick makes me look more polished in an instant!
MAC Elle Belle
Elle Belle is a cool berry, deep red in a creamy, bright finish.
Looking at it close-up, it has a tiny hint of sparkle which I won't mind because the shade is still wearable - not too frosty nor glittery.
The Elle Belle shade is indeed bold yet beautiful but since I don't usually wear dark lipsticks, I had to pass on this coz I won't wear it that much as I would with Rouge En Snow.
The metallic packaging of these lipsticks are veryyyyyy pretty: golden-champagne-ish color that shines and sparkles when hit by the light!
MAC Rouge En Snow and Elle Belle Lipsticks from the Snow Ball Collection for Holiday 2017 retails for $17.50.
