Oh I do love a matte red lipstick so I was super keen to get my hands on the brand new MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick. Apart from the fact that Betty Boop is a serious icon, I think MAC does a red lip in the best way possible and their best-selling reds have earned iconic status all on their own. I have this new limited shade right here for you to check out. Enjoy!

I love the packaging of the box, but I was so sad that the tube hasn’t been Boop’d at all and it is just the standard MAC packaging. That’s a bit of a shame I think. But moving on from that, I really do love this red.

MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick is described as a bright true red. One of my fave MAC reds is Russian Red (it was my first ever MAC lipstick) and this is in that same tone category – a blue-red that’s very flattering on my skin tone.

Love it. Again, it’s such a shame that MAC didn’t do anything with the tube packaging because it’s not very often that I keep a box and without it, it looks like any other MAC lipstick. Surely Betty warrants a special tube? I think they’d sell loads more if they had given the packaging the full treatment.

The MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick launches exclusively on the MAC website on 27th March 2017. It is £16.50. Do you think this will be a sell out?
