I’ve been such a good girl for ages when it comes to indulging with MAC Cosmetics. My pro card has strictly been for resupplying the basics – endless compacts of Blot Powder, what feels like thousands of Eye Brows wind up brow pencils – and I’ve been steadfastly avoiding all the bright’n’fun stuff.
…then these arrived. Darn you, MAC. You’re leading me into temptation with these sweet treats from the newly released Shop MAC collection. You know I have a crippling fetish for orange lip and cheek colours, don’t you?
Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush (AU$41) is a medium coverage cream blush in a a dazzling shade of orange. On the cheek it picks up more of a coral-pink tone than it shows in the pan, which suits my fairbear pink undertones just fine. A little goes a super long way with this colour and I’d def recommend wearing a primer underneath as it did leave a light flushed stain on my skin. Nothing wild or unmanageable, but my cheeks were a little rosier than normal for a day after removing this.
Innocence, Beware! Cremesheen Lipstick (AU$36) is a creamy yellow-based shell pink with a light, sheer finish. I’m digging how super lazy I can be with this lipstick. Sure, I can ass about with liners and gloss and make a pristine perfect pout, but Innocence, Beware! looks smashing on healthy, nude lips. Sometimes I just want something I can blindly put on and know it’ll look neat regardless of what I have on my eyes or what I’m wearing, y’know?
Colour Added Eyeshadow Quad (AU$75) is an on-trend transition set ideal for cooler autumn and winter palettes.
- Laundry Daze: pale cream with cool shimmer (Satin).
- Colour Added: lemony yellow. The silvery shimmer is more noticeable when applied dry without a primer (Veluxe Pearl).
- Pre-Packaged: dirty turquoise (Veluxe Pearl)
- Self-Serve: deep cool grey (Satin)
I’m a little under the weather at the moment so please excuse me if I leave it at that. I’m just going to give myself divine coral cheeks and roll around in bed for the rest of the day.
