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!

    I think I’ll give this collection a miss – unless the swatches tell me different! Lol :)

    Hi Christine, one question for you. First off thanks for all you do, I realize with the overflow of MAC seemingly releasing a new collection every month it (at least to me) can all be so just a bit to much. Onto my question…how far in advance do you know about a collections release? It seems to me that the Fashion Flower Collection is the second collection for the summer. Didn’t it used to be that MAC only had one collection per season? I don’t know, just seems like a bombardment of “stuff” and to much to keep up with! Maybe it’s just me. Thanks again.

    I had the opportunity to swatch Tuesday my local Macy’s. The lip gelees are awesome! The blue lipstick is amazing and so is Mlle. Want crazy about the other beauty powder (not alpha girl). I found it to be very chalky. Just my opinions :)

    I really only like the beauty powders..
    The lipsticks aren’t for me, and the eyeshadows seem dupeable 😛
    I <3 the flowers!
