MAC Artifically Wild Lipsticks Shitaki & Icon Photos, Swatches, and Review


What I love about MAC is the fact that they bring back beloved shades and repromote them. What I dislike is the fact that they take SO long to do so and sometimes they don’t bring the shade back at all. I recently received Icon (discontinued) in a swap, and it was brought back with the MAC Artificially Wild Collection. I didn’t take a picture of the bullet because I used it before I could get a picture and it wasn’t quite as pristine as Shitaki. But, that’s besides the point. I always wanted Shitaki or Shitake (spelled so many different ways on the MAC site and box). The actual mushrooms are spelled shiitake from what I know. Anyways, digressing again, I was thrilled beyond bits that they were re-releasing both of these, and that I would finally have my chance at Shitaki. I received it last night, and I’m SO glad I picked it up.

Shitaki is such a wonderful shade, and it lasted me 5 hours (even through snacks and drinking from a water bottle) and it is a Glaze finish. Big win!! I was impressed with the shade on me, as I’m usually not into nudes or browns, but lately, I have been on a brown kick. And, I’m wanting EVERYTHING brown. It must be the Fall season upon us. 🙂







And, Icon is a very unusual frost, and it totally fits the theme of Artificially Wild, so I guess that’s why it was brought back. I didn’t get another one because with the similar Viva Glam Rihanna 2 coming out – I think I’m covered. :s 😛 I do, however, enjoy this shade because it is so unusual. I think with the *NEW* Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipglass, it will be phenom! I would pair this shade with an equally eccentric eye, but for now, I have it with a copper and gold lid. 😉 Frosts usually last me about the same amount of time as Glazes, if not more.





So, will you be stepping out of YOUR comfort zone into the Artificially Wild?

  8. Shitake looks amazing on you! in swatches online it looks very sheer but on your lips its giving quite opaque finish..have you used any lip liner with it?

    • Hi Parita! This is just Shitaki on my lips. No liner. I did, in fact, exfoliate before applying so it did have a better lip surface to cling onto. I also have plum-pink toned pigmented lips so this could have also helped the color show up! Thanks for reading! ♥
