MAC has just launched a new Limited Edition Collection collaborating with famous artist Zac Posen. This Collection set contains a mix of all products to enhance face as a whole but I think the highlight of the collection are the lipsticks. My picks from the collection are the Lipsticks ($22.50 each for 3 g/0.10 oz). These Lipsticks comes in three shades and in heavily beautiful packaging which I couldn’t stop my self from buying them all. And some thing that should be mentioned is that they smells incredibly amazing. I do really like all three and I am glad I was able to buy them all.
Close ups and Swatches of all three colors:
Dangerously Red is a matte orange-red color, it’s a very bight red with a very cool and blue undertone. I think this is just the right shade to add a pop of color to the lips during the spring/summer time. I own couple of orange shade color lipsticks in my drawer since it really complements my skin tone. The texture is very soft and creamy even though it has a semi-matte finish, it doesn’t leave lips dry at all. I loved how it has a crease proof texture, it doesn’t smudged nor creased while I was wearing it. The coverage is amazing, fully pigmented and glides on beautifully on the lips. Mac lipsticks do stay longer on lips than any other lipsticks and I find this one also stayed longer on my lips than any other lipsticks.
Sheer Madness is a very light champagne beige and with iridescent pink pearl which carries a lustre finish. The texture is quite sheer and transparent. I wouldn’t say it goes up to full coverage but you can swipe it back and forth to get a medium coverage but I felt you can still see the skin color under the lipstick. This just gives a warmth to the lips and It has a very glossy finish, on the lips alone it’s pure neutral and on my lips it looks like pink gold nude. Add any lip liner around the edges and it will soften the color and transforms into a gorgeous color, and every time with a new lip liner color, it give a new look to the lips. And definitely you can add this on top of any lipstick to give it a little glossy look.
Darling Clementine is my favourite of all, It has a very bold darling color with orange-red undertones. This also has a semi-matte finish yet it feels so soft and creamy on the lips. The texture is smooth and glides on lips effortlessly. I find it changes color from person to person depending on skin tones, the lighter your skin tone is, the darker it looks on and with darker skin tones it looks much lighter. So it definitely depends on your skin tone which I really like it. The lasting power is amazing, it lasted on my for up to six hours.
Bottom line these lipsticks from the Zac Posen’s collection are must have for this spring/summer, where these lipsticks picks up all those bright and beautiful colors of the season to give your look freshness and a pop of color with amazing lasting power. The Zac Posen Collection has launched yesterday on 25 of February and are available at all MAC counters and stores as well as online at www.maccosmetics.ca. Get your hands on these before they’re gone, good luck ladies.
