MAC released its Rocky Horror Picture Show collection in stores yesterday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the movie, which I love!!! Tim Curry is freaking fantastic and I love him in everything, so of course I wanted some of these products!!
This is my first purchase from a collection, and I found myself in a MAC store on release day. I had my eye on the pigment, black glitter, and Frank-N-Furter lipstick. However arriving at the store an hour after opening I found the pigment sold out, and I bought the last 3D black glitter. I’m not 100% sure how a store in VA sold out most of a collection in one hour, on a Thursday morning. My best guess is they took orders over the phone and were holding items for people.
I was unaware at the time that it’s a “thing” for people to stalk the release dates for these collections and buy massive quantities of the popular items, forcing a quick sell out, leaving them with the ability to sell their items for triple the cost. This makes me freaking sick, and I really wish I had asked the girl at the store how many phone orders they were holding, thus leaving in store customers with cash in hand in the dark…but she was a typical MAC girl and I wanted to slap her within seconds of arriving!!
I’m happy I got my lipstick though.
FrankNFurter is a Matte, raspberry wine-ish red. I don’t wear a lot of red lipstick, but I find myself really enjoying this color. Go figure, since I only bought one tube!! The 3D glitter a black glitter with a silver holographic effect, but is just a repackage, and is available online all the time. I got home and found myself a little pissed that I paid $2 extra for different packaging!
Rocky Horror Lipstick: FrankNFurter $17.50
Rocky Horror Glitter: 3D Black $23.00
I’m in love the lipstick and the glitter is pretty awesome. What do you think? Tell me your thoughts below!!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
