MAC Heavely Creature – Fire Sign and Venus Lipsticks


Two lovely lustres from MAC’s 2012 Mineralize collection, Heavenly Creature.

Fire Sign is a lovely cool red, it’s very easy to wear (and apply) and reminds me childhood summers eating raspberry icy poles

Venus is a medium pink, on me its a my lips but better (cos they’re a little shimmery) shade.

MAC Hey Sailor – Feeling Fresh Eyeshadow


So I picked up MACs Feeling Fresh eyeshadow from the Hey Sailor! collection. A bright shimmery kelly green with a frost finish.  It’s a colour not found in MAC’s permanent regular eyeshadows, i think the closest would be Kelly, a matte kelly green that is/was only available at pro stores and Fresh Flare, a pro longwear eyeshadow that is too big for the standard palette.  More photos and a swatch after the jump!

MAC Reel Sexy – Watch Me Simmer Lipstick


Originally out with MAC Shop MAC Cook, Watch Me Simmer is back for Reel Sexy.  It’s such an awesome wearable coral and the amplified finish is lovely on the lips.  I blot this one down for work, and it becomes really neon with flamingo over the top.  More after the jump

MAC Reel Sexy – Heroine Lipstick


Heroine from Reel Sexy.  It’s a matte violet purple.  For me I think it’ll work well as a stain under other lipsticks like Dish It Up.   I heard there’s a new matte formula, and this is much easier to apply than my other matte (more of a lustre girl myself).  More swatches after the jump

MAC Vera – Lord it up


Dang this is smmoootthhh.  Best pencil eyeliner ever. It just glides like its namesake, no tugging!  Lord it Up is a great brown that tends a little warm in the pearly-shimmer.  I will get all of the pearlglides when I’m in the USA (not long now!)  Swatches after the jump!

Shop MAC – Dish It Up Lipstick and Scan-delicious Kissable Lip Color


The MAC Shop and MAC Cook collections hit my local counter a week early.  I picked up Scan-delicious and Dish It Up.  Both collections are gorgeous, and I would have brought more but I’m trying to save for a USA trip later this year.  I was really tempted by the tendertones, but I hate lipgloss in jars, it’s so messy!

There’s no special packaging with these, just a cardboard sleeve over the usual black boxes.

Scan-delicous is a kissable lip colour, which is a limited edition product.  I wish it were permanent! It’s a lovely formula, not sticky but still a little glossly and feels creamy and smooth on the lips.  Scan-delicious is a lovely rasberry shade – a cool reddy pink.

Dish It Up is a lustre lipstick.  It’s really pigmented (a lot more than flamingo) and a lovely pinkish purple.  In the tube it looks a lot like plumful, but as you can see by the swatch after the jump, plumful is more red, and Dish It Up has a much smoother texture.

Now on to the swatches…
