When you get swept up in the madness…
Even though I kept telling myself, I only want one lipstick and that lipglass (which I don’t have), I did manage to get all three lipsticks. All my orders came thru. Whew!
I tried on the glaze and it’s a great moisturizing every day lippie. The others I’ll be trying on and updating my IG and this blog post. I tend to take time now trying out stuff. I used to be a swipe and wipe-off repeat offender and my lips suffered for it. Now I like to enjoy the lipstick, get to know it, and bond with it.
Besides that, these are vintage lipsticks. About the only formula that is trending today is the matte Dreaming of You which looks like very other burgundy lippie out there. Trust me you won’t know the difference in low lighting. People will just say they like your dark lipstick or they’ll say “hey that looks like my fave M.A.C. lipstick ever, Diva!”

The minute differences become apparent in strong lighting in studio and flash photography. If you’ve gotten these lipsticks they are nostalgic homage to Selena’s legacy. They really aren’t anything unique in and of themselves. They are a part of who Selena was and now you can have her in your makeup drawer and be reminded of her whenever you wear it much like the M.A.C. Marilyn Monroe collection. For more of my initial thoughts, I wrote about them here. Remember they kept Selena’s makeup kit as it was for 20 years. (Shoot I still keep my makeup for even longer…lol). Her sister Suzette took photos of it and sent it to M.A.C. Most probable that Selena had M.A.C. makeup in her kit.
Here’s the first lipstick. This was the one that I said I would wear every day and get a ton of mileage on. You’re right. It’s now in my purse. The texture is soft. And I’ve never really cared for Glaze finishes. I do have a couple. Funny though they are like the Urban Decay Sheers but have a softer texture to them.
Como La Flor
…Is my red. OMG. Just drop dead gorgeous. I do love Amplifieds, I do, I do. Even if they go rancid faster than all my other formulas. But this reminds me of the red I would wear out like everyday when I was 19. Although it was an Estee lippie. There are little micro sparkles in the tube if you look close. One the lips, you don’t see much. Just pure glam!
