MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Lipstick

MAC A Fantasy of Flowers for Spring 2014 brings us six limited edition MAC Lustre Lipsticks to choose from! I have MAC Naked Bud and Dreaming Dahlia Lustre Lipstick in my hands today and I gotta say I love ’em!

The Lustre Lipstick formula isn’t for everyone but these two shades combined with the lighter texture and finish of the formula and I’m pretty darn pleased.

Do like!

The MAC Lustre Lipstick formula seems to have different results for different folks. I personally like them as they remind me of a tinted lip balm of sorts. They are typically lighter in texture compared to the regular MAC Lipstick Collection but also have a balm-y texture that does make itself known. They typically have a creamy finish sans glitter, sparkle, or shimmer and have a slight sheen finish. They wear a little shorter for me at around three hours but I still really enjoy the Lustre formula none the less. I also like that Lustre will occasionally pop up in vibrant shades such as Dreaming Dahlia and look completely gorgeous on. Typically such an orange-y shade of lipstick would scare me if it was heavily pigmented but since this is a Lustre formula it gives a sheerer finish and looks incredible on!

Dreaming Dahlia and Naked Bud

MAC Naked Bud Lustre Lipstick is another shade I’d possibly avoid if it was a different formula. This is a sheer beige nude that would give me zombie lips if it was more pigmented. But again, the Lustre formula makes the shade more forgivable because it applies sheerer and gives a very pretty peachy beige nakedness to my lips! It does show my natural lip lines though so I’d suggest a hint of gloss to make it the most wearable.

If you’ve never Lustre Lipstick before and really enjoyed tinted lip balms I do recommend a check out of these shades. They are a fresh, natural colors for Spring that give lips a lovely hint of color without over doing things.

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.

    Both colors look beautiful on you!! I ended up with Snapdragon and Heavenly Hybrid as well as both liners from the collection. So far I’m loving the colors! I just wish Snapdragon was more pigmented!

      hey! those are two shades on my try list 😀 yeah, lutres are a bit more sheer, more like a balm 🙁 but I really kinda dig that ;-D

    You look amazing!Ironically, I made the 45 minute drive (Yeah, I drive that far to get make up!) to Macy’s for these specific colors, and then ended up testing them on my hand and not really liking them, but after seeing them on you I wish I had tried them on! I might have to go back! Haha! Personally, I totally fell in love with Snapdragon, so much so that I’m mad that it’s an LE! Darn!
    Now what I really want to start seeing this their Sleeping Beauty movie collection! I’m expecting some crazy colors and beautiful packaging!

    I’m more of an “amplified” fan but I REALLY need a b-day trip to the MAC counter. I’m lemming a few things right now and I may have added a couple more to the list. One “must” is the latest Viva Glam lippies!
    These both look really pretty but I’m loving the nude one.
