Sneak Peek: MAC Baby Bloom MAC Suntints Review and Swatches

By now the Muse considers herself an experienced MAC collector but I admit it never fails to amaze me when MAC throws something completely new at me. Do you think a bunch of the MAC creative team sits down in a mafia style meeting and brain storms about what the MAC junkies of the world need next? Do you think that one day they might run out of ideas? Today is not that day though but it is a day I’ll show you a little sneaky peek at the MAC Baby Bloom Collection and a few swatches of the new MAC Suntints Liquid Lip Balm releasing with the collection!


Jump for it!

Don’t be mad at me but I think it’s quite pointless to have SPF in my lip balm…..but maybe that’s me. No matter, I’m still in love with MAC Suntints which contain an SPF 20. MAC Suntints are a liquid lip balm which mimics that of a lipglass but in a squeeze tube packaging with a slightly milky, creamy formula. The tints are super sheer and have no color payoff however they are a pure joy for topping lipstick or stains with plus if you’re partial to SPF in your gloss these work a treat. The texture is perhaps a tad bit thiner than your average lipglass but not by much. If you’re not a fan of applying your lipglass with a sponge tip applicator these are rather great as they come in a squeeze tube which allows you to spread a generous layer onto lips.


I’ve been testing two today and both are very subtle and sheer but rather great regardless since they give lips plenty of shine plus wear long. The two colors I have are Lilt of Lily (Creamy Pale Pink) and Moist Plum (Light Lilac). These could prove disappointing for some if you expect a pigmented gloss but if you adore lipglass and always fancied it in a squeeze tube you’ll adore these. I can’t speak for the other shades but I look forward to seeing if the others are a bit more pigmented than these two.


Also releasing with the MAC Baby Bloom Collection is a Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 in five shades, excited to try this myself!

Overall, MAC Baby Bloom is one of those itty bitty collections that makes MAC junkies everywhere step back and grin.

Anyone into this?

WANT IT: Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+3

By now I imagine I sound like a broken record. But..ahem…allow me to repeat myself for the umpteenth time and mention that Philosophy continues to impress me with it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gel range.

I’ve always been a mad fan for Philosophy Shower Gels but even as a fan I confess disappointment over a few that didn’t quite smell like their namesakes. Ok, I admit some were down right wrong on many levels.

But over the course of a year and a half or so Philosophy has beaten out shower gel after shower gel that impresses and tops each past release. The scents are creative, true to their namesakes, and delicious. Actually if I think about it they are exactly what I originally hoped and wanted from Philosophy but somehow was disappointed when it didn’t turn out as such.

Why you must ask am I going on about this now?

Well, Philosophy has three brand new scents available at Sephora and I suspect more will follow soon for Fall.

Click it and learn what they are and why I’m excited!

Indeed I’m not averse to a quick stop at The Sweet Shoppe, particularly Philosophy’s Sweet Shoppe.

Now available and brand new are the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Set that includes Watermelon, Little Fishy, and Bubblegum Scented 3-in-1 Shower Gel ($30). Although I find myself unexcited about the actual set (I prefer the large size shower gel bottles) I am excited about the scents. Little Fishy? I adore the scent of Swedish Fish candy! Bubblegum? Another fond favorite! And Watermelon too? Be still my beating heart.

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+2

I hope that Philosophy will extend these scents to the bigger bottles if not I shall indulge in the set but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a larger size.

Also available is the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Lip Shine Duo ($20) which includes Watermelon and Bubble Gum flavored glosses! Sweet! What happened to Little Fishy though? Sob!

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+1

Whatever your opinion of Philosophy you can’t deny the cuteness behind these sets!

Want!

Anyone else excited?
