Read below to find out what M.A.C’s Senior Artists would like to see re-introduced…
“Candy Yum Yum has to be my most favourite vibrant neon pink lipstick. It has a super matte finish that leaves a highly pigmented paint-like texture to the lips. It is always the first thing I go for when a pop of colour is needed for shows or shoots. It leaves the lip bursting with striking fluorescent pink colour that stands out from the rest. A definite show stopper!” – M·A·C Senior Artist, Cher Webb
“I would love to vote for Moxie Lipstick to make a comeback…. I remember this was one of my favourites when I started with M·A·C back in 2001. It was a loud, bright fuchsia shade and the best accessory for my LBD. To this day ….because of the Retro Matte texture…was one of the longest lasting lipsticks I’ve worn. 2012 needs to be the year of the Moxie!” – M·A·C Senior Artist, Debbie Finnegan
“Moxie to me is the pink Ruby Woo. Super cool, trend based, stay put, need nothing else on the face, statement lipstick. It is THE colour people request coming back and even though it disappeared all that time ago, it still holds its iconic crown high in the air.” – M·A·C Senior Artist, Caroline Donnelly
“When I started working for M·A·C, the Retro Matte collection was on counter. It was a line of 6 lipsticks with an incredible velvety matte finish. The only one we still do is Ruby Woo, which we know there is nothing as vintage powdery looking as that. My favourite one though, was Moxie. The most perfect blue fuchsia shade, with super opaque coverage. There is nothing like it. We want it back, we need it back.” – M·A·C Senior Artist, Pablo Rodriguez
“Sticking with my favourite product I’m seriously going down memory lane with the red lipstick called Rocker. The collection it was launched with was called Time Rocker and it caused such a stir in Ireland at the time, the visual was so crazy and we had glitters in various colours. I honestly believe Rocker and Viva Glam 1 lipsticks got Irish women to try red lipstick for the first time. The lipstick just radiated from the stand and when applied looked like you had melted down Dorothy’s ruby slippers and painted them on your lips. I had many a crazy night wearing that lipstick, it brings back tons of good memories.” – M·A·C Senior Artist, Lesley Keane
