I bought my MAC Archie's Collection products online - relying on online swatches and photos to give me an idea about the colors - but I did have a mostly accurate idea regarding what I was getting.  Mostly, except for Oh, Oh, Oh.  MAC describes this lipstick as a "sheer brown plum."  Oh, Oh, Oh looks  a scary, dark coppery brown without a hint of plum in it!  It's a sheer finish, and while the lipstick swatches pretty much brown on my hands, it does change to a plum on my lips.  Read on for photos and swatches.

As I mentioned earlier, MAC Oh, Oh, Oh turns out quite sheer on swatching, and on my hand the color is a sheered out brown.  Much less scary than what I thought it would be like but nowhere near the plum MAC describes it as.

On my lips though, MAC Oh, Oh, Oh looks very different and does finally deliver the sheer brownish plum shade that MAC promises.  Because the formula is so sheer, some degree of the natural lip color does tend to show through, but overall, this definitely is a lovely, wearable plum, especially for my darker skin tone.  The lipstick feels quite moisturizing on my lips but doesn't seem to stay around all that very long.  About 2 hours is the maximum I can get out of this, though I really don't mind having to reapply.  Here's how it looks on me.

Overall, a nice buy if you are looking for sheerer plums and would make a great lipstick for the fall/winter seasons, not just because of the color but also because it feels so comfortable on the lips.  The color isn't too dark or vampy and is quite easy to wear.
