In a recent Cheshire Oaks CCO haul I picked up two lipsticks from the MAC Temperature rising collection. The bronze packaging has a velvet matte feel similar to the Nars packaging which I like as it feels luxurious.

Feel my pulse is a cremesheen finish and a gorgeous violet magenta shade. A lot of celebrities have been rocking a purple lip this season and I was particularly inspired by a picture of Khloe Kardashian. I already owned Rebel lipstick however Rebel definitely leans more red whereas feel my pulse is a true violet. Despite this being quite an intimidating shade in the bullet I am excited to experiment with this lipstick!

This is such a beautiful bold shade of violet and I can see this becoming my go to statement lip for Fall!

Altered beige is a beige nude with a Lustre finish and gives a beautiful sheer wash of colour to the lips. This is a really flattering nude that would suit a wide range of people and doesn't give the 'foundation lip' look.

As you can see from the swatch, Altered beige is a very sheer shade, however this complements a dramatic eye look without washing out the complexion.
