I’m pretty late on getting this post up. I have so many posts drafted and this one somehow got lost in the mix.

Do y’all remember my last RiRi Hearts MAC post? I was crazy enough to go through the whole ‘waiting room’ experience and swore to never do it again. Believe it or not I stood my ground. Sometimes living in the middle of nowhere truly is a blessing in disguise. The MAC counter at my local(ish) Macy’s doesn’t usually get too crazy during new releases. RiRi was an exception of course. No worries. I was second in line. I got up super early, drove to the mall with my father, fueled up on a venti soy latte, and started my stalky business outside of Macy’s. As soon as the doors opened I ran to the MAC counter and while trying to catch my breath acted as if I just happened to be in the area. ‘Oh TODAY is the RiRi launch? Oh! I’ll take one of each lipstick I guess…’ I then stood back as the crowd of people flooded the counter. Not everyone left so happy. And if I hadn’t checked my bag before leaving I would have been one of those unhappy people as Talk That Talk wasn’t in my bag. Always check your bags before taking off! Especially during a big launch like this.

After reading reviews it seems quite a bit of people weren’t happy with the lipsticks. I personally found that a little prepping went a long way. I used a lip scrub beforehand and then applied a very thin layer of lip balm to my lips. Then I pat the lipsticks on gently and built up as needed. No issues at all! Talk That Talk did get a bit patchy after eating and drinking, but a little touch up fixed that. They’re gorgeous lipsticks and totally worth the little effort needed to perfect the look. I know that not everyone feels the same, but hey, everyone is different.
