beauties, the fashion week gods have smiled upon me!
i have my very own tube of MAC's ruffian red, a bright yellow-red lipstick, created by MAC and ruffian. designer and makeup line fashion week collaborations delight me!
and get this, only 500 tubes of this lipstick exist - it cannot be purchased and is only available to those who attended the show (which was on saturday, 2/14/09) and select trendsetters (is that me?!).
the shade is meant to capture the franco-american allure of ruffian's fall 2009 collection. the inspiration? a red lacquer 18th century chinese vase in the home of ruffian-friend and muse, antonia thompson. obscure, n'est-ce pas?
i haven't had a minute to put it on yet, but you can bet once i do the pictures will be here. now, its back to my tent/event-packed schedule!
