Last Summer, MAC Cosmetics released their poll so you could vote for your favourite shades of the 90s and 2000s to make an appearance in Spring 2014. The vote was between six different lipsticks, and three of those would make a comeback on the MAC UK and USA website until they sold out and disappeared forever. The lipsticks up for the vote were:
Pink Poodle: Vivid, fuchsia pink, frost finish
Rozz: Watermelon reddish-pink, matte finish
Hoop: Mid tone rosy pink, matte finish
Tomango: Bright red-orange, matte finish
Glam: Vivid, bright pinky-red, matte finish
Flavour: Soft, muted peachy pink, satin finish
I actually remember voting for MAC By Request, and I remember voting for Pink Poodle as it’s pink, and I love a pink lipstick. However, when they came online with the winning requests; Pink Poodle, Hoop and Glam, I automatically went for Hoop as it is a colour that is quite unique and doesn’t look to similar to anything I own already. I may have purchased Pink Poodle too, but we shall save that for another day!
MAC By Request Hoop is described as a mid tone rosy pink. To me, it is quite vintage rose in colour. Its absolutely beautiful and I can’t liken it to any other lipstick in my MAC collection. I compared it to Speed Dial and Chatterbox however they are in a totally different colour spectrum in my eyes. Its a warm toned pink, and is fully opaque in coverage and lasts a good 4 hours before wearing off. MAC UK states it has a matte finish, however on the box and tube it says satin finish. It looks to be a matte lipstick in the tube, however there is a definite satin finish when applied. Either way, its a beautiful colour!
Alongside the lipsticks, MAC have released the matching lipglasses to add to the collection. I’m not a huge lipglass fan so I haven’t bothered with those however if I can get hold of Glam before it disappears, I’ll be a happy girl! The lipsticks are priced at £15 at MAC UK.
