MAC Kanga-Rouge Lipstick - Review, Photos, Swatches

Here is one of the awesome gifts I received last Christmas! :)

I love how my family and relatives know what I like. This gift is from my Aunt whom I rarely see, but I'm really touched that she kept my love for MAC makeup in mind. Actually, she's the first person who gifted me a MAC product. It was a lipglass in Pink Lemonade, probably 8 years ago. I loved that lipglass so much, and I'm really loving this lipstick she gave me. :)

MAC Kanga-Rouge is a bright red shade in amplified creme finish, though it feels and looks more like a satin finish for me. On the tube, it looks quite similar to NYX Eros. But once applied, it reminds me of MAC Russian Red and MAC Ruby Woo, only in a different finish. This was originally released in the MAC Dame Edna Collection (hence the packaging), then re-promoted in the MAC Ice Parade Collection. I'm honestly not a fan of this packaging. The tacky sticker of Dame Edna's glasses made it look cheap. Good thing MAC learned their lesson and made their LE packaging more sophisticated.

PROS: One of the best red colors I've had in this finish, creamy, won't dry out your lips nor rest on it's crevices, decent hours of wear
CONS: Not a fan of the packaging (the red sticker), limited edition, pricey


 I will repurchase when I don't find something better.
