First of, after reading comments (from other websites) on how dupable the shades of red are from the MAC Rocky Horror collection, one should understand that Rocky Horror is quite a niche interest -- they don't really come out with merchandise, so it /is/ limited edition in that sense.

I remember seeing the swatches online, I had my eyes set on Frank-n-Furter (matte; wonderful deep red shade!), and I completely ignored this as I'm not very keen with oranges.

When I went to a MAC store, I swatched this over my hand, still iffy. However, I put it on my lips and was surprised, I loved it! I have yellow undertones with uneven pigmented lips. This is a bright orange red lipstick. Great color pay-off; smooth in application, it glided the best out of the 3 mattes in the collection; and wears well for 5-6 hours.

I am a neutral-lip kind of girl, deep reds are already too bright for me. Loved the product, loved the packaging, this sure nudged me into getting my first orange!

This is a matte shade from the Rocky Horror collection; it is described as a "yellow toned brick red" and it is absolutely gorgeous. I could see this being flattering on a variety of skin tones, fair to ebony. It also appears that it may be perfect for both cool and warm tones ( I am the latter and it is a definite neutral red.) The packaging has the movie inignia etched on it with black shiny casing. The box it comes in has the movie characters inside, so if you're a aficionado you won't be disappointed.
I would love this to be a permanent shade; it is unlike any other I have ( and I have a plethora of red lipsticks.) Pigmentation is excellent and it wears well- I don't find it drying at all. This would be superb with a gold gloss layered over it. I haven't bought anything from a MAC collection in quite some time, but I admit to stalking the website and waiting until they were listed as I love the movie and was enthralled with the color. I got it within just a couple of days with free shipping; it may be sold out now but hopefully the counters and free standing stores have it in stock.
