MAC Spring Colour Forecast 4 Review and Swatches

‘ello my dear girls!

What’s news? I’m a little late to this ball game but I wanted to give you a little brief review on the MAC Spring Colour Forecast 4.

Whatcha haul from it?

I wasn’t too impressed with this Forecast but a few bits did stand out for me.

Jump it!

I guess MAC Spring Colour Forecast 4 was my least fav of the collections however it did have one key selling point, the MAC Colour 4 Eyeshadow Quad! Loves this!

The quad features a nice array of warm shadows that will work beautifully all year round. The quad features shadows in Manila Paper (White Gold), Flip (Bronze-y Gold), Aztec Brick (Coppery Brown), and Creole Beauty (Frosty Golden Bronze). The shades just all work fabulously together to create a really warm, sunny eye look. Absolutely in love with this quad and think it’s the best of the two released.

Sad to say that MAC Blush Ombre Springshine is doing nothing for me. It’s a dull, matte shade of sunny beige. With a little cheek stain under it or a vibrant blush on top you can create a nice golden glow but on it’s own it’s rather dull and uneventful to me and the least prettiest of the four.

I also got MAC Lipstick in Bronzilla which I surprisingly liked. It’s a nice metallic bronze that looks rather pretty with gloss on top. And MAC Lipglass in Gold Dust which was another pretty shade of warm golden peach. As pretty as Gold Dust looks it applies a little crummy, so you do have to be careful during application wit as it has a tad bit of a drier formula than other lipglasses I own.

Overall, the star of the collection for me was the shadow quad. Everything else was a tad uneventful and nothing to get too crazy excited about. If you haul nothing else at the very least get the quad, it’s delicious!

Do share what you got from MAC Spring Colour Forecast 4!

    OMG. I NEED that quad. I have a Rimmel quad I bought because I loved the colours and I wanted them all together (002 Smokey Brun) and that MAC quad looks sooo similar to it. I don’t like the quality of the Rimmel so I am going to the MAC, woot! Thx for the heads up!

    • the Muse

      my pleasure chung! no offense but you’ll def be happier with the mac, rimmel quads just don’t do it ya know?

      • Chung

        Haha, no offense taken 😉

        I really loved those colours and wanted them in a quad so I can save space in my mu bag so that’s why I bought the Rimmel. It was also my first ever Rimmel shadow and I just don’t like them!! Will not buy Rimmel again. I have a few MAC shadows that I love so I’m really happy that MAC has come out with a similar quad so I can bin the Rimmel and stick to the MAC 😀

        • the Muse

          aw good chung *hugs* some folks take DS very seriously haha! stick with the mac good choice my dear girl!

  • resham

    The quad look very dupable…can u pls suggest MAC dupes of these colors?? I knw you have tons of color…:)

    • the Muse

      hi resham! How are you?

      I really don’t know. It would take a bit to go through all my eyeshadows and suggest dupes for the shades. Hehe it’s just easier to buy the quad rather than seeing which dupes I have 😀

      If I have an extra second I’ll try to go through them all but it may take me a while to update 🙂

  • SilhouetteScreams

    That quad didnt get enough love from bloggers! It is SOOOOO pretty 🙂


      no!!!! The early bird catches the worm right? 🙂 I’m 16 and I just got interested in makeup last year and I am so sorry I did because i missed out on great l.e collections :'(

      • the Muse

        hey linda! Ugh wish I was 16 once again lucky you 😀 That’s ok Linda believe me by the time u hit 20 mac will have introduced a million LE’s that you’ll love 😀

    The spring forecast was released in the UK today and I was at my local store at 8:55am this morning waiting for them to open the door – hahahaha ! I told my boss that I would be late in to work this morning because there was something I had to do that was REALLY important. I was quite proud to be the first customer to buy anything from the new collections – I feel I should go down in history, or something.

    I only got the eyeshadow quad from #4 because I’m new to MAC and I’m trying not to go too crazy. I keep telling myself that there will be many, many other collections coming out. Previously I have only ever bought brushes from MAC so I can’t wait to get home from work tonight and have a play.

    • the Muse

      hey ally sorry for the delayed reply! LOL sounds like me I get hyped and get there early when I can 😀 They should give you an award! 😀 LOL! honestly it starts to work after a while as I do that. keep telling myself over and over I do not need more mac 😀 and more collections will be out soon enough 🙂
