MAC A Rose Romance: MAC Fix+Rose WANTS IT!

MAC Fix+ Rose? So wants it!


MAC+A+Rose+Romance

As the release of MAC A Rose Romance nears the Muse can’t help but jump around in excitement over the MAC Fix + Rose! I have a thing for rose scented products so I’m all about a calming spritz filled with vitamins and minerals carrying the scent of 100% natural rose water.

My inner Victorian lady so needs a bottle or two or three….there’s something terribly ladylike about spritzing one self with rose scented fix!

What about you?

Is MAC Fix+ Rose calling your name?

Reader’s Request: MAC Just A Pinch Gel Blush Review

Ok, so you don’t like Benetint because it’s simply too red. And you’re not too keen on Posietint because it’s too pink….but you’re still wanting a nice, natural cheek stain.

No problem.

You really need MAC Just a Pinch Gel Blush!

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+3

Introduced as a limited edition product with MAC Rose Romance Collection this sweet little blush gives cheeks just the right amount of flush without being too red, too pink, or too bold!

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+5

The gel comes in the standard paint pot jar which contains a healthy amount of product but since I’m loving it so much I feel like I need a back up before it’s gone EEP! I suppose it’s not really a stain per say but more of a gel blush. The formula is a cool, moist gel with a subtle touch of color that can be built up in intensity. Going natural or loud is completely optional just layer the product for a more bolder look or use a tiny touch for a more natural look.

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+4

Since it doesn’t have the standard formula of a liquid stain it’s easier to blend on to cheeks. You won’t be left with little dots of red on your cheeks since it absorbs and blends easily for a smooth finish. The impact is a very natural, simple flush to cheeks, nothing dramatic, very subtle and fresh. Ideal for Spring I’d say. You might recall a few years back when MAC had gel blushes in a tube. This is kinda the same concept but more of a solid base.

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+1


Personally I love the look it gives to my face. If you’re a big lover of stains you’ll probably fall for MAC Just A Pinch Gel Blush instantly! Although it’s a rather bold shade of red in the pot, I thought it looked very natural and sweet on my cheeks.

Definately Muse Approving this one for purchase! Loves it so much I think I’ll snag a back up!

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.

MAC Line Filler Base Review

MAC+Line+Filler+Base+1

Everything about MAC Line Filler Base is awesome….everything but it’s size.

Read ahead for my rave and maybe a minor rant or too. A review isn’t a review without a slight rant or two from a Muse.

Released with MAC Colour Ready, MAC Line Filler Base is probably thee most awesome base I’ve come across in a very, very long time. I’ve tried MAC Prep & Prime before and expected miracles of the product and got none but MAC Line Filler is exactly what I wanted and expected from Prep & Prime plus a little bit more!

MAC+Line+Filler+Base+2

Although it described as a pre-makeup primer for softening and relaxing lines and wrinkles the Muse likes to think of it as awesome in a tube. Now I have no lines nor wrinkles to speak of aside from a small minor ones under my eyes so technically speaking some rep or another would probably say I don’t even need MAC Line Filler Base but I beg and plead to differ. It’s an ideal prep for my under eyes, makes my concealer last forever and two days later, allows my foundation to remain fresh, and just works as a beautiful treat for my face. I love you MAC Line Filler, wanna go steady?

MAC+Line+Filler+Base+3

MAC+Line+Filler+Base+4


The formula is a thick cream which personally I think will be ideal for anyone pore ridden. I can’t speak for pores but damn does it fill in minor lines under my eyes like a snap plus it allows my concealer to blend beautifully and stay. I decided to use it all over my face this morning, hey might as well get my $19.50 USD worth, and it works great at prepping my skin and allowing my foundation to stay in place a few hours longer. Although you probably aren’t going to want to use it daily on your face unless you have serious pores since it comes in a tiny tube and costs $20 bucks!

MAC+Line+Filler+Base+5

Which brings me to my beef….can’t we get this stuff in the economy size? It comes in a 05oz tube (15ML for you Brits) which isn’t nearly enough for this Muse. I needs more please, k thanks.

Aside from it’s minor size it packs a mighty punch and does an amazing job at filling up anything you’re needing to fill, particularly lines of course but I def rec it for trying out on large pores, skin imperfections, and scary fine under eye lines.

Super stuff, comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase. Try it, pinky swear you’ll love it and rant later about it’s tiny size!
