MAC Fashion Flower Collection: Coming Soon!

MAC Fashion Flower Collection – Coming Soon!

Stay tuned for full photos, swatches, and reviews for six eyeshadows, two lipsticks, two beauty powders, and one lipgelee! 🙂  I was up late last night photographing and swatching before crashing (1AM), and now I’m up early to roll out the reviews!  Will definitely have to grab some Starbucks ASAP, haha!

Initial thoughts:

  • Alpha Girl applies more pigmented than it swatches but still looks subtle
  • What’s up with all of the super glittery lipgelees?  Love me some glitter but the past six or so have all been glitter bonanzas!
  • Flower design is cute – kind of dig the imprint over special packaging, personally!
  • Aqua and Free to Be seem less pigmented than my pan variations
  • Bows & Curtseys looks way better on than swatched
  • Summer Shower is pretty much colorless with lots of aqua, teal, etc. shimmer/glitter

P.S. — I do also have some products from Flighty and the new Magically Cool Liquid Powder as well.  I’m still waiting for the official description of the Big Bounce Shadows, because I can’t review them properly without knowing what exactly they’re supposed to do.  Stay tuned!

MAC Surf Baby Collection Sneak Peek


MAC Surf Baby Collection Sneak Peek

While I was in Toronto last week, MAC had a glass display of recent/upcoming collections, including Surf Baby. Obviously, since everything was behind class, I couldn’t quite get all up in Surf Baby’s business for the very best of shots nor have a swatch session. I do not know when I will have products to review or swatch, but I will, of course, review the collection as I do each MAC collection.

Trust me — if I have something new I can share, I do so immediately, and that goes for any brand. If you wonder why you see something elsewhere but not here, it means that Temptalia will likely be subject to legal action if we did, despite other websites posting the same information. It’s one of those unfortunate growing pains but our motto is that it’s better to spend time on swatches/reviews than in legal battles to post mere photos a couple of weeks early!

See some sneak peek product shots!

MAC Viva Glam VI Lipstick

MAC Viva Glam VI Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “warm terracotta-plum with pearl,” and it has a lustre finish. Lustre finishes have sheerer color coverage, and it is definitely true with Viva Glam VI. This is a very easy to wear color, because it’s incredibly neutral–not just in the color itself, which is a rosy terracotta, but it”s not too warm or cool. Like many of the other shades in the Viva Glam family, it is wearable across skin tones.

It wears just under three hours on me (I typically average four), and I find that lustre finished lipsticks are not moisturizing.   I also find that this particular finish doesn’t always apply evenly.  It is vanilla-scented, like other MAC lip products are, and the tube has metallic red detailing in the logo and inside the tube in the spirit of Viva Glam. 100% of the selling price of each Viva Glam lipstick goes towards the MAC AIDS Fund.
