Hello lovelies! ^-^ I've got a quick review and swatches on some of the MAC collections that came out recently: Mac Tres Cheek and MAC Chen Man. I just picked up a couple of products from each collection. The newest MAC collectin coming out this Thursday is the Fashion Sets, where the most popular lipstick colors will be available in limited edition lipglasses and nail polishes. I don't think I'm going to be purchasing anything, I need to save up for MAC's Hey Sailor collection coming out later this month! Super excited about that ^-^. On to the swatches and review!
MAC Tres Cheek Collection Blushes
(L-R:) Immortal Flower, Peony Petal
Immortal Flower is a light peach in a satin finish. I seriously love this color!! I actually don't have any shade like this in my collection. It's a straight up peach, no coral or pink hues to it. This blush is actually deceiving. When I first swatched it on my hand at the MAC store, it was really sheer and honestly didn't look like anything special, but when I applied it to my cheeks, I fell in love! It gives you the most lovely warm peach flush, super flattering! It shows up much better on the cheeks than it does when you swatch it. It blends really nicely and you can easily build up the color. If this is still available at your nearest counter, pick one up! I feel this blush would be super flattering on fair skintones. ^-^
Peony Petal is a cool blue-based pink in a satin finish. This one is really pigmented. It's a really pretty barbie pink but it looks pretty dupable, I feel I have a couple of blushes that are similar. I'm pretty pale so I had to use a light hand when applying the blush but I think this shade would work across all skintones. If your looking for a pretty barbie pink blush then I would check it out if it's still available at your counters. If you already own a lot of bright cool toned pinks then I don't think it's a must have, as you may already own something very similar.
MAC Chen Man Collection
(L-R): Budding Love lipstick, Force of Love lipglass
Budding Love is a light lilac pink in a lustre finish. A really cute girly color. I find most lilac/lavender colors hard to pull off but this one works because it's more of a pink with lilac undertones. It's sheer at first but you can build up the pigmentation easily by applying more layers.
Force of Love is a bright warm pink with silver shimmer. It's so pigmented that I can easily wear it alone. The color is gorgeous and would look lovely in the summer. It's a shade that I think would look good across all skintones.
I hoped you enjoyed the swatches + reviews ^-^. Next up will be a review on April's Topbox, a monthly beauty box subscription available in Canada.
Till next time,
