Lip Service: MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Midnight Mambo

One of my new favorite Summer lipsticks comes from the new MAC Tropical Taboo Collection. Midnight Mambo is like the young ‘pinker’ version of Violetta. It’s still blue based… but not as purple. And it’s much more moisturizing, as the mineralize version tends to be.

This is one those rare instances where the real life photos look better than the stock photo. This lipstick looks like a jewel. It is absolutely gorgeous.

I swatched it next to Violetta, and sure enough Violetta (Amplified) is more purple:

Violetta is on the right. Midnight Mambo is definitely more fuchsia. You can find out more about the entire Tropical Taboo Collection HERE.
