I’m chugging my way through the MAC Spring Colour Forecast Collection. Phew, it’s a big one isn’t it? What have you hauled so far?
Today I have swatches of MAC Spring Colour Forecast 3 for you plus a review.
Two gems from this collection for the Muse which are the Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape and MAC Lipglass in Purple Rage. I wasn’t sure about either but ever so happy I tested out because they are gorgeous. But let’s discuss the eye palette first? Good deal?
First off I would like to toss it out there that I LOVE the new eye quad design. So please can we keep this? They rock! It’s a little larger than the old quad design, only slightly, but the real reason I adore it is it’s a smooth, flat square. It seems to stack and store easier than the old quads plus it’s way more elegant looking. Whatcha think? Isn’t it a keeper? Let’s see any future quads released in this new packaging!
That’s all I have to say good about the palette.
I hated the colors sadly. I normally like purple and I thought the promo model was rocking but up close they were somewhat uneventful plus they made my eyes tired looking. The quad contains Minx Pink (Soft Pink), Bruised Plum (Dirty Mauve), Black Tulip (Dark Grape), and Jungle Moon (Eggplant). The shades proved incredibly difficult to work with, blended really badly, and just weren’t up to my normal raving when it comes to MAC shadows. Honestly three of the four shades look matte to me so imagine my surprise learning only one is a matte and the others are veluxe and frost finishes. Maybe it was me and the skills I simply do not have but I couldn’t make this one work (hell I had to work HARD for the swatches I did, they just don’t apply correctly). I’d skip it if you haven’t hauled already.
Now as I mentioned above the real winners for me were the MAC Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape and Lipglass in Purple Rage.
Vintage Grape has people up in arms on whether they need it or not, I’d like to think you do. Some are scared it’ll apply a bruised purple but on my cheeks it was a very soft shade of warmer pink. I’d liked it very much and think it’s do-able with a very light hand.
Purple Rage Lipglass had me worried as I def do not do purple lipgloss or lipstick well. But turns out it’s just a very lovely deep, rich shade of berry on my lips. It’s quite a stunning shade, I wouldn’t call it Spring really but it’ll rock during the Holidays. I loved it and deem it worthy of a haul if you like vibrant, bolder shades of gloss.
Overall, MAC Spring Colour Forecast isn’t my fav of the Forecasts but it has some nice pieces worth exploring.
What did you haul from it?
Anything I missed out on that I SHOULD be buying?
