The colors shown here are part of MAC’s Limited Edition collection although I don’t regret buying them but think there wasn’t any need as I ADORE their permanent line so I would suggest you guys or say myself also to go easy with their LE stuff …..twice or thrice in a month they come up with new collections and make us MAD yeah actually mad and we ( me) spend money which is not even required ….
I am posting LE colors Pink Lipsticks first as I would be posting their permanent shades in a day or two and you will have an idea of what am talking about … Well I know only I am the crazy one around but still wanna warn you …. Ohh am I talking BAD About MAC ???
I am happy with the fact that am spending lot less on MAC these days or say am spending wisely on MAC as seriously you don’t need to own each and every product …. basics are good to have and if you are spending more you should set your limit and that’s what I have done in recent times … and the best part is even hubby noticed and is so happy for me ( for him I mean) although mentions that my online shopping is still going on but at least there is halt on MAC …woohhhh enough of my praises … right ???
Lets get back to colors for now …. I am not going to mention each and every collection name just the color and the shades but before that let me tell you something about their finish
I love love love Amplified Cream Finish and hence any lipstick in that finish is my favourite by default any collection or permanent this is by far my fav. and the least fav is Frost and the one I hate the most is Glaze …
Petals and Peacock – Awesome blue based Fuchsia Pink color with wonderful Amplified cream formula , lays nicely on lips and looks fresh for hrs , no shimmer glitter but high gloss shine …. you can have Girl About Town if you love this shade ….
Trimming Talk – Although the formula is Frost the lipstick is good moisturizing an exceptional case when we talk about FROST Finish , good sheer pink color , if you are afraid of hot pink color on your lips but love the hot pink shade in tube this is the color for you …. an eye catching color in tube but on lips it looks more of sheer pink tint , very easy to wear pink lips for me and for any girl with warm skin tones ….
Utter Fun – Its more of a red based pink color and is very easy to wear kinds although I have used it only 1 – 2 times , the finish is not one of my favourite so that might be the main reason , but for starters this is a good red pink color to have , the finish is lustre which is very nice moisturizing but the staying power is very poor
Big Bow – I HATE this color like anything .. its not even from vintage time that I can keep this in my showcase to flaunt proudly to my fellow makeup lovers …. Its siting dead in my shelf and am waiting for the peak point to arrive and I will scoop out the lipstick in an empty pot and use the case for Back 2 MAC …. guess by now you have an idea how much I dislike this , GLAZE finish overloaded with glitter and that too rough ones that hurts eekksss, the color is nowhere between hot pink and fresh pink , very sheer color … you have better words to describe this horrible shade ??? The only good thing about about the lipstick is the case which has this funny cartoon character I don’t know if its barbie or hello kitty … Hello Kitty it seems ….
Show Orchid – This is one of my all time hot pink lipstick and god I have got so many compliments for this color …. lucky to grab this in store as it is limited edition and PRO only shade but it is promoted most of the times … If not many do have this in your stash , definitely not one of the easy to use shades but the shade you would be proud of in your stash , Did I said its collectors item ?? Naah …. its one of the best hot pink MAC has to offer , leans more towards blue side but looks awesome on our warm skin tone ….. no shimmer no glitter just ultra smooth amplified cream formula .. I LOVE THIS Fuchsia Pink Color
All the colors are hot pink or pink or red pink … you think a sensible girl needs that many pinks ??
Bottom Line – The only hot pink shade I would recommend from the above mentioned lipstick would be Show Orchid … although Girl About Town is very closer dupe of the same so guess you can even skip that …. and no am in a very good mood today its Akshaya Tritiya and am not shopping … so yeah am in a good mood …
What about you ??? Did you hauled anything today … no makeup but something expensive like GOLD ?? I did read ShriSukt path so guess am happy for that
One small tip for this auspicious day – If you have kesar (Saffron ) pls take some time and apply it to Vishnu ji …..
