MAC Fashion Sets Lipglass Review & Swatches
MAC’s new Fashion Sets Collection is a range of coordinating and matching lips, tips, and eye goodies that are launching for Spring 2013.
I admit I’m one for matching! So of course MAC Fashion Sets is ideal for me (must be my OCD behavior that demands I match my lips and eyeshadow).
Take a look!
Ablaze and Embrace Me
MAC Fashion Sets consists of four shades of lipglass (as well as lipstick, polish, eyeshadow, and lip pencils) two of which I tried out recently. These are quite bold shades and will make fun additions to your wardrobe for Summer.
Embrace Me is a bright fuchsia cream that offers true to tube color on lips. Yes, the formula is very much MAC’s typical vanilla flavored and scented lipglass with a tacky, sticky finish. I’ve made my peace with MAC’s gloss formula and you should too as all that stickiness makes for a heck of a long wear time. Although not a fond fan of such a loud shade of fuchsia I thought the color was rather stunning and it provides full opaque coverage so you’re getting a glossy finish and plenty of pigment for your buck here.
Likewise with the shade Ablaze which is a bright orange cream with some coral. This actually has amazing potential as you can tone it down, wear it on top of a coral lipstick or a stain, and do any number of fabulous cocktails with the shade to create some rather fabulous looks. It’s not so bright an orange that it would be deemed unwearable as the hints of coral make it more than pretty. Although it looks warm I’d lean towards saying it has elements of cool to it as well which means it’ll suit a wide array of skin tones. The color also has a pigmented finish with full opaque coverage.
Fashion Sets is definitely a fairly great round of pigmented colors from what I’ve seen so far! Well worth exploring for those who like bold.
It’s available now at MAC counters or online at maccosmetics.com
