MAC Toledo Collection Oxblood Lipstick

Cute packaging!
The display untouched. I was the first person in the store.
MAC's Limited Edition Toledo Collection released online last week and in stores yesterday. I purchased the lipstick in the color Oxblood (matte) at my local MAC counter yesterday, it retails for $17.50 USD. It's the only color from the collection that is sold out online so I basically had no choice but to buy it in store! I adore the packaging! There is an inner box that slides out with the lipstick in it (bottom right pic in collage). They definitely put some thought into it. As you can see from my pic of the display, there are other items in the line, but I'm usually only interested in the lip products so I tend to focus more on them. The other lipsticks in the collection are mainly reds and all matte. I swatched them and find them to be too similar to each other (Tenor Voice, Victoriana & Opera). Barbecue is more orangey and Sin is a deep burgundy (not swatched) and actually isn't new. I also swatched their eye liners. They go on super smooth. The only one I would get for fun is the lime green, Chlorafill since I already have colors navy and purple eye liners.

Oxblood is a dupe of NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream in the color Stockholm. I have that one as well but application is not as smooth for me. NYX describes Stockholm as a "mid-tone beige pink" and MAC describes Oxblood as a "light peachy nude"which is weird since they're practically the same.
