Truly the comedy Bubbles brought to Ab Fab was priceless and a most perfect lead in to my review of the new MAC Quad in Call Me Bubbles.
Let’s take a look!
Call Me Bubbles is one of three new quads MAC released with the MAC Shop Collection. Quads have been a bit iffy lately from MAC in my opinion as they run a bit on the dry, chalky side. So far, the MAC Shop Quads are proving decent enough with a few hiccups.
My favorite of the lot is Call Me Bubbles, not only because of the name (Dontcha just love Bubbles?) but also because of the color selection.
- Call Me Bubbles (light tan)
- Fresh Daily (orange)
- Full of Flavour (coral)
- Brash (copper)
(Swatched Left to Right: Brash, Full of Flavour, Call Me Bubbles, and Fresh Daily)
Call Me Bubbles is made up of some great shades and some meh ones, the worst for me is the very delightful coral shade, Full of Flavour. This is matte finish and I found it incredibly difficult to work with as it applies patchy and the formula runs drier. It is rich with pigment which is one perk about it. The good news is you get to pair it up with Brash which has a certain metallic gleam to it. This also happens to be the most pigmented shade in the batch and is a gorgeous shade of vibrant copper with hints of red.
I like the fact that all the shades go really well together and create a really pretty sunset eye look. The colors remind me of the MAC Spring Forecast Quad but they are considerably brighter and more vibrant. With a little know how you can create a very pretty look with these shades. My look below is amatuer at best but I had fun with this one and thought it proved much nicer than some of the quads that MAC has released recently.
If you like warmer, sunny shades with a good deal of vibrancy I suggest indulging in Call Me Bubbles. I think it was the prettiest of the three quads released.
