Ah Mac. It’s been a while. As soon as I saw your beautiful colours and packaging and was tempted, and then I started seeing swatches and all was lost.
And then when I placed my order I had that feeling of nostalgia which was really quite nice, and then waiting for the order to come, which was really quite exciting, and then the delivery of the black box of joy as I always used to refer to my Mac deliveries, and the…oh sod it, I can’t keep up this bizarre style of posting.
(EDIT – something has happened to some of the pictures when I’ve posted this post, it’s not supposed to look like that )
Here they are, my purchases. Beautiful packaging.
The brightly coloured packaging is just sleeves though and when removed, inside you’ll find the classic Mac packaging.
Included with my order were these.
I don’t know what to do with them but I love them and I point blank refuse to give them to my children. I just like looking at them. haha!
I picked up three of these. Lip balms with SPF of 12. I am so glad I got these. I’ve heard so much about them, and worth every bit of hype I’ve ever heard. The texture is beautiful as is the fruity scent. I have to say that if scented products aren’t your thing then you won’t like these because they are very scented, I love them. The texture is beautiful. Moisturising but it stays on and continues to moisturise for a long time after application. I find that many balms disappear very quickly needing constant reapplication. I do reapply these frequently but its because I love them, not because I need to.
Here’s a closer look at them.
Hot ‘n’ Saucy
Finally, because the lip swatches aren’t amazing, here they are on my hand. They are sheer colour but subtley different.
Next up the Cremeblend Blush in Restores Dazzle. I adore the Cremeblend blushes, this is my third and the others are very well used. This was a bit of a risk as all online pictures looked different. Varying from quite pinky purple, to deep burgundy. So here are my pictures. Make of them what you will, it’s very difficult to accurately photograph! That said the swatches are very accurate I think.
And on my cheeks, its just what I hoped it would be. A fresh pop of colour.
And finally I picked up two lipsticks. Dish it Up and Watch Me Simmer.
Hand swatches, Dish it up on the Left, Watch me Simmer on the Right.
And on the lips. Dish it Up.
Watch Me Simmer
I really like both of the colours but feel they are very summery so I felt a bit self conscious in them this week! They are both very vivid. Lovely coverage though!
EDIT: I have LIVED in Dish it Up since I originally wrote this post. It’s like it was just made for me, my teeth look whiter, it’s bright and colourful without being neon pink which I’m never sure suits me and I always feel self conscious in. Dish It Up FTW!
So thats it. Really like this collection, I could happily have got more but I don’t have unlimited funds so thats that.
Anything take your fancy, or have you bought anything from these collections, or any of the other 7 (!) collections launched at the same time?
