Could be love, could definately be love! Jump ahead for the sneaky peek!

MAC Rose Romance releases officially April 23rd but check your local Pro shops as it might be peeking it’s pretty head out early for you to snag. So far I only have a few of the items and from what I tried I must say I’m impressed and I’m rubbing my hands in glee awaiting my chance to get my greedy little hands on the rest of the release.

Star of the show, for the Muse, without question is the new MAC Just Pinch Gel Blush. Oh my god the coolness is too much. Housed in a paint pot glass jar this gel gives your cheeks a pinch of blush that will last all day long! Likey. It’s a loud red so a little goes a long way and with a bit of the new beauty powder on top you’re sure to look pretty for Spring!

Of course second runner up for my money are the stunning new Rose Romance Beauty Powder. Available in two shades these are shaped like a rose and pack a nice bit of pigment so they can easily be used a blush. I have Summer Rose which is a soft violet with plenty of pink.

I only have two of the three lipglasses released but from what I seen so far loves it! They seem more shimmery and full of sparkle than any other lipglasses I have. Steal My Heart is bright fun pink shade and Virgin Kiss is a pale almost peach with plenty of sparkle.

I wasn’t big on the lippies as they are a bit too nude but I def want to try to make them work. The colors I have so far are A Rose Romance which is a nude pink and Way to Love which is a creamy nude pink that almost has a touch of peach. I’m wanting Odyssey as it seems a nice warm plum shade and keeping with the mauve like look and feel to the entire collection.

Love, love, love the new shades of See Thru Lip Colour although they have been downsized from their original size of .17oz and are now mini size. I’m partial to Tender Tryst which is a gorgeous plum! I also tried out Secret Crush which is a pure berry.

I’m looking forward to seeing the other shades of shadow in the collection but so far I’ve tried Of Summer which is a frosty mauve and Et Tu, Bouquet? which is a frost pale pink with touches of gold (nice to to cocktail with Circa Plum piggie!).

I believe Circa Plum Pigment is a repromote. It’s a frosty dark lavender which makes a great contrasting shade for paler pinks, very fitting for the collection. Mutiny is being re-released as well and if you haven’t already gotten this gem from the Naughty Nauticals Collection I highly rec nabbing it now as it’s thee most perfect shade of aqua I’ve run across.

So far I’m deeply impressed. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest shortly and I’m very eager to try out the MAC Fix + Rose Spray, it’s on top of my list to buy! Just when I think I’m off the MAC train I can’t help but be suckered back in. Really a great collection and well worth checking out for yourself.
