MAC Haul & Swatches : MAC lovecloud blush, Mac Immortal Flower blush, Mac watch me simmer lipstick, Mac reel sexy lipstick .
In my most recent YouTube video I showed you the items that I picked up from the recent M.A.C collections.
I wanted to do a blog post on them so you could see them more in depth since the swatches in the video are sometimes quick and un-detailed. I decided only to get two of the blushes from Tres Cheek and two lip sticks from Reel Sexy.
MAC lovecloud blush
The first blush that I decided to pick up is “Lovecloud”. This shade is perfect for Spring and Summer.
It is a wearable mid-tone pink with a beautiful satin finish.
The pigmentation on this blush is beautiful. With a light hand, this can be applied as just a subtle wash of color across the cheeks, but if you want more of a statement look, you can definitely achieve that with this product.
Lovecloud is a yellow-based pink, which I think is so much more flattering, especially on my skin tone, than blue-based pinks.
The next blush is one I had to go through a little more trouble to get.
I had originally ordered this on Nordstrom along with the rest of these products, but received an e-mail a day later saying they made a mistake and it’s actually not available so they cancelled it out.
I went to my M.A.C counter and to my surprise there was only one left, so I grabbed it quick.
Mac Immortal Flower blush
This would be the ever-popular “Immortal Flower”. I can imagine this becoming a favorite and something that will continually be re-promoted and sought after.
Immortal Flower is a gorgeous creamsicle orange with a hint of coral.
I knew I had to have this when I saw the release photos for the collection, this is my two favorite colors blended into one.
I wore this product today, and literally fell in love. All of my coworkers were commenting on how fresh and bright my face looked and how pretty my cheeks were!
With this shade, you are going to need to build it up if you desire a more dramatic look, but I prefer a more subtle wash of color.
Now onto the two lip sticks I purchased from Reel Sexy –
Mac reel sexy lipstick
The first I decided to pick up is “Reel Sexy” and this is just a really stunning coral/orange. I’m not sure why the color is a bit distorted here, it actually looks much more true to color in my YouTube video – so I would check that out. For some reason the pink did not really translate into this picture. I do love this color and I am planning on wearing it to Easter Sunday with my family!
Mac watch me simmer lipstick
Last but not least is “Watch Me Simmer”, a re-promote from the Shop M.A.C, Cook M.A.C collection. I wanted this at that time but it was always sold out. This is basically a hot pink coral. Again, picture is not that fantastic at displaying the color!
