She’s back. She’s everywhere. I was prepared to dislike the new RiRi (Hearts) MAC Fall collection, because let’s face it…she is so over-exposed. However, now that I have tried some of the collection, I hate to admit I rather like it. At least some of the items. Rihanna is premiering her perfect palette of lavish fall color for MAC– a range of decidedly daring yet classically gorgeous shades, finishes and tools, all encased in the warmth of rose gold packaging. Lipstick in deep raisin, orange frost, creamy nude and the vivid red of RiRi Woo match gleaming Lipglass, while eyes in contrasting soft and smoky cocoas complement luminous skin highlighted with Diamonds Cream Color Base and Powder Blush in Bad Girl Gone Good.

A peak at the entire collection.

If you liked the addictive RiRi Woo red lipstick that was released earlier this year, you might appreciate this collection centered around Fall. The collection as well as the rose gold packaging is quite beautiful and some of the shades are classics kicked up a notch. Let’s take a look…

How could you not be smitten by this packaging?

The colors are quite subtle.

One of my favorite products in the collection is the lip liner ‘Talk That Talk’ which is a dark plum. It goes on a bit creamy and literally does not budge all day!

RiRi Woo…the perfect shade of cool red.

Normally I can’t wear cool reds, yet RiRi Woo’s red is the exception. This shade is almost as universal as MAC’s Russian Red. The rose gold packaging of the shade however, is for a limited time.

If you prefer a glossier red, RiRi Woo lipglass is for you.
