Rarely do I get this excited about makeup.
…okay that was a lie.
BUT SERIOUSLY. I always start wetting my pants when a new collection at Mac comes out. The Archie Girls one. The Riri one. The Christmas stuff was SO gorg. I could go hog wild. And I don’t mean that figuratively. I would actually like to roll around in Mac products. Like a pig.
But I don’t. Because that would be
too good to be true weird. Instead, I sensibly ogle the products, remind myself not to be materialistic and think of the people staying in Sochi.
But when I see a collection like this, I simply have to partake. When I see a collection screaming, “NATALIE!! We are your favorite colors!! LOOK HOW PRETTY WE ARE!!” I simply cannot ignore. I mean, just look a’these shades:
Stop it, Mac.
Even though I wanted to leave the store with a large shopper filled to the brim, I remained my prudent self. With these two lipsticks (because you see, I cannot say no to lipsticks).
As you can see, both of the lipsticks (as well as the rest of the colors) are lustre finishes. My favorite Mac lipstick formula is Cremesheen, but whatevs.
First up: Rose Lily
At first, I thought this was going to be similar to my ALL TIME HOLY GRAIL Viva Glam Gaga 1.
But sadly, it is not. The color is quite sheer, which is to be expected with a lustre. The above pictures are making the color look richer than it really is. I find I cannot build it up like I can with the Gaga lipstick (also a lustre). It’s pretty, but maybe a bit too sheer for me.
Next, Fleur D’Coral
This shade is just beautiful. It reminds me of Coquette, by Lime Crime (which I am dying for) but I don’t think it’s near as pigmented. Similar to Rose Lily, it goes on pretty sheer but I find this shade a bit easier to build up the color. I think this would be so gorgeous with tanned skin (or in my case fake tanned). It just screams spring and summer to me!
Here they are, side by side:
Sorry about my orangey lighting but it’s just me and my iPhone.
Have you tried anything new from Mac?
