MAC Finally Free ($17) is a collaboration with Caitlyn Jenner that benefits the MAC AIDS Fund Transgender Initiative. This is a limited edition shade described as “Mid-tone rosy nude,” and it is a cremesheen formula (my favorite!).
I feel like this lipstick would look good on just about everyone. It is insanely flattering and simply beautiful and feminine. It is also very easy to build up into a deeper color, or sheer down, which is something I adore about the cremesheen formula. Plus, it is so comfortable to wear.
In the swatches above, you can see how this shade looks with various layers. The top is one swipe, the middle is two swipes, and the bottom is several swipes. But look at that color! Isn’t it beautiful?? I am so in love with this lipstick!
I know some were surprised that this lipstick wasn’t more unique, but in an interview with MAC, here’s what Jenner had to say about it:
“I wanted a lipstick that would be universal, suited to more people, and was an everyday lipstick, not just a high-glam, once-in-a-while kind of lipstick. I like a little colour on my lips, not a lot during the day. And this rosy nude is the colour I’ve gone to. To be honest, I want people to use it every day so they have to buy more. I want to raise a lot of money. It’s very simple.”
I am hoping this color will be made permanent in the future. 🙂 A girl can dream!
