I purchased two lippies from the MAC Heavenly Creatures launch in Venus and PleasureSeeker but seriously have to get to a counter to check out the rest as I feel like I might have missed some uber awesome shade.
Anything I NEED from this launch?
Which shades did you grab?
I was a little disappointed with these…
Take a look!
At a glance both Venus and PleasureSeeker look like light, easy to wear shades that would enhance the shade of my own lips without over doing things.
That’s exactly the kind of lippie we all crave for Summer right?
Venus is a perfect pair up with Cremesheen in Galaxy Rose from this launch as well but on its own it falls a little flat. This is a pretty shade of rosy pink or as MAC dubs it a sheer yellow pink with pearl. The formula is the main issue here as it’s a MAC Lustre which I commonly associate as mix of cream lipstick with a bit of shine.
The shade is a gorgeous MLBB (my lips but better) color but it falls a little flat on my skin tone and goes a little too mod. I also felt the formula, as with all Lustre finishes, was patchy, uneven, and terribly dry. The color is sheerer here with a hint of shine.
PleasureSeeker was a poor choice as well for me. This is a mod shade of creamy peach in a Glaze finish. Again, Glaze has a hint of shine like Lustre but for the most part very creamy. With that being said, of course, the cream goes on a bit patchy and uneven. Gloss helps things along with both of these shades but the formula just feels terribly dry without it and has a drier application as well.
Venus and PleasureSeeker
It deserves mentioning that these are not travel friendly. They melt super easily. Don’t swivel them up to high during application as both shades broke on me and I ended up having to freeze and reset them. Ugh! Annoying.
Overall, seems like the MAC Heavenly Creature Lipsticks and I aren’t a match made in heaven. I will explore the other shades just in case I missed something important but if these are anything to go by I’m going to say I probably didn’t.
