MAC never fails to impress me. Today’s post is all about the pink lip gloss set that is part of MAC Irresistibly Charming Collection. This collection is launching in NZ tomorrow. I thought, this is the right time to review this set.
MAC Irresistible Charming Collection for Holiday 2015 is all about beautiful pigments & lip sets coming in sturdy boxes. These make the the ideal Christmas/ New Year gift for any makeup lover. Also, check out MAC Enchanted Eve and MAC Magic of the Night Holiday 2015 Collection and here.
This lip gloss set- pink is priced at NZD $95.00 and has the following shades
–Just Superb neutral pink (cremesheen glass)
–Crème Anglaise rosey mid-tone pink (cremesheen glass)
–Colour Saturation deep wine (cremesheen glass)
–Sugar-Rimmed milky pale pink w/multi-pearlized pigments (dazzleglass)
MAC’s holiday lip gloss sets are are great value for money, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each and you get to try the lipglosses without having to buy individual ones.
Look at the packaging, how adorable the lip glosses are! the screw top has a nice detailing in blue and purple. Also, the case is really nice to carry around these glosses. Great as a gift or a treat to yourself.
The applicator. All except the shade “Sugar-Rimmed” has a sponge wand. Sugar-Rimmed has a brush wand.
Swatches, FOTDs & my experience using the lipglosses
Swatches (With & without flash)
Just Superb is described by MAC as a neutral pink (cremesheen glass). It’s a light pink with a cream finish. It has sheer-medium pigmentation and applied smoothly. I wore it for about 3-4 hours. I loved how it looked on my lips.
Crème Anglaise is described by MAC as a rosey mid-tone pink (cremesheen glass). It’s a medium pink shade with a creamy finish. The consistency is very lightweight and I loved how easily I was able to apply on my lips. No sticky feeling at all. This shade is really good if you are looking for that natural rosey lip look. It lasted on me for about 4 hours
Colour Saturation is described by MAC as a deep wine (cremesheen glass). It’s a dark, berry-red with a cream finish.This is my most favorite color from the whole set. A lovely shade for day time wear. It’s more of a fuchsia on my lips. I wore it for about 5 hours on my lips.
Sugar-Rimmed is described by MAC as a milky pale pink w/multi-pearlized pigments (dazzleglass)
Here is a collage of all the shades.
I love all the shades and apart from applying the glosses alone. I also tried applying it on top of matching lipsticks and this increased the wear time and gave more intensified looks. All the formulas were easy to apply and had no stickiness feel. I really loved how MAC have done the color selection for these lip gloss sets. There is a violet & Nude lip gloss set as well. Overall, I loved this mini kit of Cremesheen Glass and Dazzleglass in shades of pink, Priced at NZD $95.00, this set is a good value for money.
MAC Irresistibly Charming Collection is available in New Zealand from November 17, 2015 at all authorized M.A.C locations.
