MAC x Rocky Horror Picture Show Frank-n-furter & Sin Photos, Swatches, and Review


So, I know this has been a long time coming, so let’s jump right to this review. The good news is MAC Sin is PERMANENT, so if you love the color (which I wouldn’t doubt) then you can still grab this!! Frank-n-furter was sent to me as a gift from a sweet friend. So, I really got lucky there because I couldn’t find it anywhere after it was SOLD OUT online.



Frank-n-furter shown above.

The packaging is amazing! I love everything about it from the iconic lips to the glossy bullet. *sighs*





Starting off with Frank-n-furter. You’ll see that this deep, sassy red is just as much of a showstopper as Dr. Frank-n-Furter. It was a beauty on, and the formula was fantastic. I love MAC’s mattes. Gorgeous!





Edit: Reader Sonia asked how similar it is to the Zoya Red Matte Velvet Lipstick. I feel that Frank-N-Furter has more orange in it.

But, pull back a little, and they practically do look the same! So, if you missed out on Frank-N-Furter, definitely grab the Zoya Red Matte Velvet Lipstick!



And, then there’s Sin, also a permanent shade, as mentioned above. This deep burgundy is awesome! I almost didn’t buy this shade, but I’m so glad (and in special packaging, no less!) because this will be my go-to shade this Fall/Winter. Such a gorgeous deep shade and so buttery to apply!





Oh, and quickly wanted to share that Wet n Wild Cherry Bomb is said to be a dupe, but it isn’t quite the same. It is similar, and for $1.99, you can add this, as well, to your collection, but Sin is a MUST HAVE!!

Purchased by me. Gift. All opinions are honest and my own.


  1. So pretty! They all look great on you! I’ve got suuuuuper pale skin, so I’m not sure how Sin would look on me, but I’m tempted. 🙂

  2. Hi Shipra, Could you please tell me how similar Frank-nFurter is to the Zoya Matte Red Lipstick? thanks

  3. Ugh!! I LOVE bright red lips! Especially on people with gorgeous dark hair! AND I love the movie Rocky Horror Picture Show… might have to go get this shade, for nostalgia’s sake 🙂 Thanks Shipra, great post!

  4. I always want to wear red lipstick but I am a chicken about it. lol I tend to go more for lipgloss. They look great on you.

  5. These are a little bright for me…I’m too chicken to wear bold colors, especially on my lips! But they look GREAT on you! 🙂

  6. Love the MAC Frank-n-furter on you the best.

  7. What red blush are you wearing it looks great!

  8. I love this collaboration! The Frank-n-furter red is AMAZING <3

  9. What a fun color! Def adds a pop!

  10. Wow! Talk about red luscious lips! And I agree with you, the packaging is amazing!

  11. So I never wear lipstick but I have always wanted to try wearing a dramatic lip like this! It looks stunning on you 🙂

  12. Wow! Great color! I can’t help but love a good red!

  13. That is the perfect red! Looks beautiful!

  14. Oooh that Frank-n-furter does look sassy. I’ve always loved a deep red lipstick.

  15. With my super-pale skin and blue eyes, red lips are SUCH a statement. I tend to stay away from them except for special occasions, but it would be so fun to do them more often. What’s your favorite shade for daytime? I feel I should start building my lipstick arsenal…

  16. Those colors look fantastic on you! I love red lipstick! I may have to go pick this one up! Thanks for sharing!

  17. I love those colors on you and was so excited when I heard that MAC was making these!!!

  18. Wow, these are truly deep bold reds! They both look fabulous! Love the comparisons and the two different brands are surprisingly similar but I see what you mean about one being more orange!
