Stash Shop - Kanga Rouge


Stash Shop is a series dedicated to digging through my collection and finding items I love from collections and years gone by or even old staples I feel need a spot in the limelight every now and again. 

The very first item featured in Stash Shop is none other than Kanga Rouge from MAC's Dame Edna collection. Released in 2008, this Amplified finish lipstick is a true blue red with a beautifully glossy finish. The wear time on this lipstick runs about four hours over all with little to no feathering on my lips.

One of the things I love most about this particular lipstick is the packaging. Now, I know, the packaging doesn't affect the wear time or colour but just look at it! I'm a sucker for anything purple and this collection had enough purple to make me need a new pair of jeans. The glasses are a sticker that's been placed on the tube, which I found disappointing, but it's managed to stay on for quite some time now!

As far as the sanitary quality of the lipstick, the texture has held up, no 'off smell' has come up and it wears like the day I purchased it still. I generally, for my personal collection, base my toss-outs on the feel and smell of a product. If I get sick, I've only got myself to blame!

I've included some more pictures below so be sure to check those out if you want to see how my perfect red looks.
