MAC Spring Colour Forecast 2 Review and Swatches

Let them have bright sunny colors for Spring, so says MAC! And to that they bring to us MAC Spring Colour Forecast 2.



Ah chicas! Tis my favorite of the all of MAC’s Spring Colour Forecasts so far! MAC Spring Colour Forecast 2 brings plenty of lovely warm shades to the table with plenty of sunny shades to play with.

I’m heading to my MAC counter tomorrow to haul the piggies and take a peep at the rest of the collection but I did get a taste of the color collection for myself already and it’s LOVE! Love, sweet love!

My favorite?

MAC Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach! So beautiful! A sunny graduating shade of light orange that faded into a peachy coral shade. It looks so pretty on my cheeks and warms up my entire face! Loves it!

I also got a chance to play around with two of the shadows, one of which I used in my sunset eye look below. Hot, Hot, Hot is a bright coral, almost orange in some cases with a satin finish and Nanogold is a beige yellow with a suggestion of the palest pink, a perfect little highbrow highlighter.

And finally, a perfect companion to my Pink Grapefruit Lipglass, Rose Maiden Lipstick! A beautiful bright orange, coral mix which MAC refers to as berry? I’d rather call it a fiery coral or at least to my eyes it is.

MAC Spring Colour Forecast 2 is quickly becoming my fav. Total gushing review for this one! Loves it! I can’t wait till tomorrow to see and haul the rest.

What did you get from this forecast?

I created my look below using Ripe Peach Blush, Rose Maiden on my lips, and Hot, Hot, Hot Eyeshadow paired up with a shimmery shade of gold shadow from another palette.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    That looks so pretty on you. The first thing I noticed was the lipcolor, its like the perfect shade. So vibrant but nothing too over the top. Now I’m really tempted to buy it…

    • the Muse

      aw thanks chocolate you’re too kind dear! It’s a great shade! Really reminds me of pink grapefruit, my fav shade of mac lipglass 🙂

  • daisyv316

    I was just at macy’s this sunday and I was looking at hot hot hot, it was the only e/s that caught me eye, so I might go back and pick it up, and I am loving that lip color, i dont know why I didnt get them…I was also eyeing the cindy lauper l/s so i might pick that up too….maybe i’ll just go to mac’s website…yea, i’m going now lol

    • the Muse

      hey daisy! I like it. I hate the satin finish because it’s a little bit of a bitch to work with but it’s really nice for sunny eye looks. Grab the CL lipstick it’s nice. Gaga is way to hard to pull off but I think the cyndi one is a nice universal shade or at least it looked like it to me. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks gorg in the tube. LOL daisy! have fun! Come back tell me what you haul? I’m heading to my counter tonight to grab some more stuff!

  • Michelle (Lipstick Rules)

    Beautiful! I picked up Fresh Salmon, Laugh a Lot, and Ripe Peach blush. Loves it too! I want Rose Maiden but it’s sold out at my local counter. Must hunt down — so beautiful.

    • the Muse

      hey michelle great hauling! I liked laugh a lot! was a really lovely shade 😀 I’m heading to counter tonight, cross fingers everything isn’t swiped up! I went a week before the release and they had everything but it wasn’t available for sale GRR!

  • suz

    WOW!! you look absolutely beautiful with this look…you just glow…I want those two eye shadows and lipstick…I definitely want to try this look!! So fresh looking!! *no lies here*

    • the Muse

      aw suz you’re too kind *hugs* thanks Suz! You’re a gem! Really. Thanks 🙂 You’re gonna love this blush too! it’s so lush!

  • jackieg02

    I’m really lemming for that blush ombre.

    I feel a trip to MAC coming on for later this week.

    • the Muse

      jackie you needs it 😀 the blushes are really making me sit up this week! Been kinda blah about mac lately but this I likey!

  • Catherine

    your nanogold looks much prettier than mine. strange. yours is more beige-y looking…maybe it’s the camera? i like it though… and I wish mine looked like that.

    • the Muse

      hi catherine could be the camera or the way your monitor displays color hun. Mine is a golden beige with pink. 😀

  • Amy

    This is a much more realistic look on you and I saved it for a future almost-DO. I’m sure you won’t approve my comment, but just wanted you to know if you can fix that lip color to work within your natural lip line, you would look as fresh and Spring-ready as anyone else. Kudos to you for your hard work!

    • the Muse

      amy thanks for your great comment, I have no problem approving it. however, your slamming of me on your site is completely uncalled for. I don’t know you personally and looking back in my comments seems you made some pretty nice ones in the past, one of which I haven’t had a second to reply to yet, but proceeding to take my personal photos, putting them on your site, and saying rude and nasty things about me is completely uncalled for. No idea what I’ve done to you to warrant such behavior but it’s REALLY hurtful.

  • Kristina

    Where’s her site? Fans of your site will gang up on her and tell her she’s a dumbass. I would anyway. In my experience, people are mean without cause when they’re jealous. Is her site as popular as yours?

    • the Muse

      kristina thanks I really appreciate but there’s no need *hugs* I don’t want a ton of readers to go over there and make her feel as bad as she did me, that’s just not my thing ya know? I’m positive you feel the same way! I don’t know if her site is popular or not and I wish her every success with it.

  • Kristina

    Oh, I want that blush but it seems to be sold out. Tell me it’s just like Orgasm (which I have) so I don’t have to be sad!

    • the Muse

      it’s a little different kristina 😀 not too orgasm-like more…orange, coral, very lush!

  • Lara Debono

    AWWWWWWW Muse. . . .I wont be able to put that mac on until may!:-( cant wait . . . .you copied my wishlist or is that what they call telepathy???:-)LOL! Perfect fotd, I hope I can get it as good as you.

    • the Muse

      lara I share brain waves with you haha 😀 aw thanks it’s not perfect but I sure did have fun with it 😀 you’re gonna have a blast with these shades they are SO pretty!

  • Nia

    Oh, I love Rose Maiden on you and if it looks half that on me, I will get it 🙂

    • the Muse

      aw thanks nia how are you doll!? I’m trying to catch up on comments and i KNOW I owe you quite a few MWAH!

      • Nia
