Gimme a moment here because I need to calm myself down. I mean, nobody can keep their cool after looking at all of what M.A.C Cosmetics has to offer this Summer 17. Pictured above is the highly anticipated Fruity Juicy Collection that literally stole my heart! Enough of my overly excited rambling, let's dive straight into all the new collections and as always, your homegurl has got you covered with swatches!
As much as I love a good ol' liquid matte lippie, I still can't stay away from the classic gloss that makes your puckers look extra juicy. With a new double-walled clear vial packaging, you can achieve the high fashion glass-like finish or simply dab it down with a tissue for a subtle sheen. Usually, I'll apply this on the centre to create an illusion of fuller lips. For shoots, using my fingers, I like to dab a little Lipglass on the model's lips to mask the lip lines for an overall moisturised look.
A clever fusion of highlighter and blush, the Extra Dimension Blush delivers the perfect pigmentation with a beautiful soft-focus sheen that doesn't emphasise your pores. I was concerned about the sheen at first as I have extremely oily skin and I do not wish to look any much closer to a disco ball. However, the Extra Dimension Blush took me by surprise. The glow it gives is simply stunning! Just like a healthy flush from within, it looks beautiful even on bare skin. This is one of my all-time favourite blush to date and I love how it lasts the entire day without looking too over the top. A definite must-have!
Hint of Colour Lip Oil - SGD
Probably the "it" product this Summer, the Hint of Colour Lip Oil is a magical lip product that has colour transforming properties. It gives a pretty popsicle stain effect that is trending all around this season whilst providing moisturising properties like a lip balm. Enriched with nourishing oils, this deep conditioning lip oil tint will leave your puckers looking soft, supple and full. The ultimate flirty girl-next-door weapon. ;)
Fruity Juicy Collection
Probably the main reason why you guys are here, M.A.C's Fruity Juicy Collection is literally to die for! I mean c'mon, they already nailed the packaging, just #TakeAllMyMoney already!!! I had to control myself from sneaking that gorgeous Fix+ into my bag. (Haha, I'm kidding... or am I?) Everything screams SUMMER! Clad with palm leaves, tropical fruits and bright yummy colours, the Fruity Juicy Collection instantly takes me to an idyllic weekend spent on a beautiful white beach, basking in the glorious sun with a nice cold mojito in hand.
Encased in a stunning tropical print tin case, each palette has 6 beautifully curated shadows for Summer. The packaging itself already won me over. I love the sturdy and compact casing which makes it easy to travel with. I am a warm tone lover so naturally, I would gravitate towards Fruit A La La, a palette inspired by the seductive sunset. As for the shadow quality, it seems to perform just as good as their regular pan shadows. I've heard that the quality between these limited edition collections & the main line differs but mine seems good. Here's the look I've created using Fruit A La La on the eyes and the Extra Dimension Blush in Sweets for My Sweet!
Simply said, stunning! Can never argue the quality of a M.A.C lipstick and these are no exceptions. Also in the limited edition tropical packaging with a high shine finish, there may be chances of fingerprints but it can easily be wiped off.
Bronzing & Pearlmatte Face Powder
The bronzing powder is just like any other bronzers that M.A.C offers. They are pigmented, buttery and blend like a dream. But the one that stole my heart has got to be the stunning Pearlmatte Face Powder. Definitely a collectors' item, you wouldn't want to miss this if you love makeup. A mixture of pink, yellow, purple and tan, it is a summer tropical escapade mashed into one. You can pick up the colours individually or simply swirl a fluffy powder brush for a beautiful healthy bronze glow. I simply can't get enough of this.
The one thing that I would urge everyone to get their hands on is this stunning Fix+ in a new coconut scent. It reminds me of sipping a nice cool pina colada by the beach but ya know, at a much glamorous level because we all know how magical Fix+ is. A few spritz is enough to take your makeup from zero to hero.
And that concludes my entire roundup of M.A.C Summer 2017 launches, I had so much fun playing with all these makeup and giving you all first dibs on everything. Do let me know if you wish for me to review any product specifically, I would gladly do so. There are much more exciting things brewing for M.A.C and I can't wait to share them with you. In the meantime, thank you for reading and have a good one!
