I’m making my list and I’m checking it twice because I still have to haul MAC Spring Colour Forecast!
I went to MAC on the 4th in hopes they’d have it and guess what? They DID! But it wasn’t for sale. Those damn teasers. They tempted me and teased me with the display and proceeded to slap my wrist and say, “Nope, not until next week, sorries!”
But thankfully I was lucky enough to score some of MAC Spring Colour Forecast to play with and test out so now I’m just making a list on items I still need to get from MAC Spring Colour Forecast 1.
Jump for my MAC Spring Colour Forecast 1 Review and Swatches and babblings on what I still need.
Ok, so I still need the following:
All the eyeshadows!
Have a lookiee at the lipglasses and lipsticks.
What I got to play with:
- MAC Crushed Metal Pigment Stacked 1
- MAC Blush Ombre Azalea Blossom
- MAC Lipstick Laugh A Lot
What did you guys haul from MAC Spring Colour Forecast 1? Create any gorgeous looks with your loot?
So…let’s start with the MAC Crushed Metal Pigment Stack. Likey and no likey.
Love the stacked design! How great for traveling with!
Love the smaller size! I can never get through a single pigment so these are perfect.
Really flaky pigments, hello fall out!
I kinda miss having a top to blend my brush around in.
Colors are easily duped by stuff you probably already have in your collection.
The stacked design is fab, what a masterpiece right? Makes traveling around with your pigments so easy plus you can take several colors with you and not worry about a mess. However, I do admit I kinda miss the lids on each pigment as I normally use the lid to blend pigment into my brush or tap excess off etc. Since the pigments stack together they each have a protective seal you can use as a lid of sorts, this also keeps them from becoming a mess each time you open a pot, but I find mixing on the protective seal a bit messy and not as lovely as having a lid with a lip. I like the small size ALOT! I can’t get through large size pigments anyway so yay for smaller sizes.
Formula wise it’s fall out city chicks. Sorry but these are flaky as hells. Not quite Solar Bit formula but much like the texture of Kitschmas. Proper prepping and priming will save you the hellish fall out but it still could prove a pain to some. All the shades included with the stack are gorgeous without question but easy enough to dupe from past pigment colors. The light lilac is identical to Kitschmas, the darker purple is spot on for Nocturne, the deeper rose similar to Rose Gold, etc…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the stack but the shades are easy enough to dupe.
Question is would I recommend buying it. If you have a bit of money to fling around yes, sure why not. I like the packaging alot for travel and even if I wasn’t given one to test out I’d still have purchased these.
My favorite piece of this collection so far is the MAC Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom. It’s a cool light pink which looks slightly odd as it graduates from pale pink to purple as hey who doesn’t look at it and think, “Purple? Can I pull off purple on my cheeks?” Turns out the purple and pink meld together beautifully and just add a tiny flush of pink to cheeks. This is particularly good for heavy handed folk like myself as you can’t get it wrong since the shade is so sheer and subtle.
And finally MAC Lipstick in Laugh A Lot which is a very wearable shade of mauve pink that carries that “your lips but better” vibe along with it. It’s applies rosy and natural for a fresher lip look when paired with a dramatic eye look.
Overall, MAC Spring Colour Forecast 1 is turning out to be as special as I had hoped it would be.
Now I need to get to hauling the eyeshadows from the collection and spy on the lipglasses and lipstick to see which ones I need.
I highly rec checking out some of MAC Spring Colour Forecast for yourself. It’s such a wide variety of product, you’re sure to find one or two things to love.
Muse Approved for purchase for sure! It’s the first MAC Collection I’ve been very excited about in a long time.
I created a very boring FOTD with the collection in a rush. Sorry! But this is what I came up with using the rose and pale pink piggies on my eyes, Laugh A Lot Lipstick, and Azalea Blossom on my cheeks!
What did you get from the first forecast?
What are you planning and plotting on getting?
