MAC Cosmetics Spring Colour Forecast
MAC Lipsticks: Rose Maiden, Fresh Salmon, Victorian, Colour Me Coral

MAC Spring Colour Forecast: Lipsticks Reviews, Photos, Swatches (Part 2)

And I bring you part two… and the LAST of all of Spring Colour Forecast reviews.  Now, I’m going to go pass out.  Or something!

Spring Colour 2 Forecast — Lipsticks

  • Rose Maiden is a brightened up red-berry with a frosty finish and sheen. It applies nearly opaque on lips.
  • Fresh Salmon is a medium salmon pink with a golden shimmer and lustre finish. When applied, the golden sheen is really apparent.
  • Victorian is a bright pop of cool-toned pink with a golden sheen. It kind of reminded me of my new favorite pink, Guerlain Giulette, but it’s much cooler. When applied, this goes on mostly opaque and almost looks and feels creamy.
  • Colour Me Coral is a light coral with some beige in it and a frost finish. With its frost finish, it does have a tendency to look too frosty on lips, but with a creamy gloss–say Ember Glow–I think it’ll be just fine.

Spring Colour 4 Forecast — Lipsticks

  • Beigeland is a semi-sheer, shimmery pink-beige with almost a metallic sheen. It’s a frost finish, and I think it applies a bit unevenly alone, so it’s something that needs to be used with a lip brush or else finished with a gloss.
  • Bronzilla is a reddened bronze with a very metallic sheen. Like Beigeland, it’s also a frost finish lipstick, but it reads more metallic. I found it applied better than Beigeland for evenness, but I’d personally layer a gloss on top to make it really pop and work in a look.

  1. The colors are beautiful…the collection is sooo huge…I am overwhelmed…
    Thanks for all the swatches and reviews.

  2. Nikki

    Wow! Great job on the reviews!! Loving the Colour Me Coral lipstick!

  3. Ashley

    I was really exited for Victorian, but I’m not so sure about how it would look on me now that I look at it on lips :( I guess I’ll have to check it out in person.

  4. O_O Usually I am not impressed with MAC’s LE lipstick launches but wow, I so want Rose Maiden and Fresh Salmon and I am actually totally serious. So, so gorgeous! I’ve kind of stopped wearing MAC lipsticks though since my Laura Mercier stickglosses just treat my lips so much better. But omg, so pretty!!

  5. rowan

    fresh salmon is adorable!

  6. Anitacska

    I love Rose Maiden and Fresh Salmon, and quite like Colour Me Coral and Bronzilla too.

  7. claudia

    Now I want Victorian too. Oh God.

  8. Danielle

    Wants Rose Maiden, Fresh Salmon, and Colour me Coral!
    love the l/s.

  9. abby

    Christine you put so much work and time into reviewing and swatching this collection! thank you so much for that. This collection is so unique it will be impossible to pass on :( lol

  10. Brittany

    I have never liked so many!!! fresh salmon and color me coral are beautifuL! but i liked them all.. this sucks, i can’t buy all these:-p

  11. Luisafer

    Rose Maiden, Fresh Salmon Lipstick, Bronzilla Lipstick so beautiful!!! think must have!!!

  12. Rosanna

    I’m glad that the frost lipsticks – Victorian and Rose Maiden, aren’t as frosty as they their finish would otherwise indicate! Such pretty shades…I was kinda hoping some wouldn’t be so great so I wouldnt try to buy all of them….fail!

  13. Wow! In the photos, Fresh Salmon looks a lot like lollipop loving! Are they really anything similar? I’ve been hitting myself for not buying that one!

  14. Nicole

    I don’t know why, but Bronzilla is CALLING MY NAME! Must have! It’s making me dream of summer. And Rose Maiden swatches so lovely on your lips! I’m not sure how it would look on me though….hmm…I’ll add it to the “maybe” list. :p

  15. amy

    Fresh Salmon and Victorian are my favourites in this bunch!

  16. Az

    Oh no I intended to get Victorian but your swatch is so different to the hand swatch on specktra. Love Fresh Salmon (& it’s lustre yay) and Bronzilla

  17. Wow, you’re so fast! I like a lot of the pinks and I’ll skip Bronzilla and Beigeland

  18. j e n

    Fresh Salmon is miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine! :)

  19. jo-anne

    omg! maybe it’s because i’m sick of the gloomy winter weather, but i’m so excited about this collection! i will most definitely get fresh salmon! it’s gorgeous! and i just might get rose maiden.

  20. sandrine

    I love bronzilla.

  21. Missy

    I want Colour Me Coral and Beigeland!!! I think Victorian is beautiful but it doesn’t work on my skin tone I would look cartoonish lol=)

  22. Tessa

    It’s such a shame they put metallic sparkles in everything. I’d have loved Fresh Salmon if it was a cream. For such a huge collection I’m finding it very skippable. I like the colour Malibu Peach NP… but I know Essie do similar colours that are probably better quality.

    Maybe I’ve just got makeup fatigue!

  23. ak

    Hey Christine, Do you think that Rose Maiden is anything like New York Apple? And do you think that Fresh Salmon is anything like CB96?

  24. ak

    Hi again Christine, is Bronzilla anything like Shag or that Spiced Tea from the Warm & Cozy collection?

    • Hmm, more bronzy, more metallic than Spiced Tea – more metallic and not so frosty, you know? I can’t remember what Shag looks like at all at the moment, lol!

  25. daphne

    I think your lip swatches are one of my favorite things you do – SO helpful and I really appreciate it! I mean, am I crazy, or does Fresh Salmon look like it could be a half-decent substitute for Gems when I run out of it? It’s very, very pretty at any rate and I want it either way, but if it satisfies my desire for gold-laced pinky coral I will be very happy :) I also LOVE Rose Maiden, even though I don’t generally get excited about frosts. I’ll have to see about picking it up. Will have to do some depotting so I can B2M for some of these and save $$!

    • Aww, thank you, Daphne!! :) I am so glad you like them! It’s not a bad substitute, though I don’t think it’s quite like Gems, LOL! But nothing really is… you know the magic of Gems!

      • daphne

        Sigh! I know, right? Trying to focus on the fact that it is a lovely lipstick in and of itself and I want it for that reason. Because really, no more $30+ lipsticks for me after Gems and my two Rouge Allure Laques.

  26. Kimberlee

    How similar are bronzilla and beigeland to high tea?

  27. monika

    Beigeland looks so good on your lips.I am thinking about buying that one.

  28. Cathy

    Do you think Made with love l/s from Colour craft collection is a good alternative to Fresh Salmon? Or any other possible lipsticks that are similar..I am on a budget and trying to cut my list down a bit.

  29. Fresh Salmon seems similar to “Lollipop Lovin” or is my LCD screen just throwing the color off?

  30. Salmon looks like a safely beautiful bet, but victorian looks tasty for bold looks. Victorian seems like it could look amazing or be a total mess, but sometimes you have to go out on a limb and take a chance.

  31. Mandy

    Victorian looks absolutely divine! I should have bought that one last night!

  32. aradhana

    hmmm…aaahhh christine i thought i was over the lipsticks, and now i’m starting to consider victorian and fresh salmon…! though i’d have to swatch them to be sure about frost levels…sometimes the frosty shades just don’t work for me…they make me look like an aunty, if you know what i mean.

  33. civa

    I was wondering does Beigeland look anything similar to 1N lipstick?
    Thanks for all the review and swatches, it always helps me out with the colors.

  34. Cherie

    Is Bronzilla close to the slimshine Cocoamour?

    • Cocoamour was pretty brown on me from what I remember, but it’s been awhile since I’ve really swatched it!

      • Karyn

        I’m probably asking the same question others have in a different way, but does Fresh Salmon end up looking coral-y on the lips or more of a true pink? I’m trying to decide between Color Me Coral (which looks maybe too light and frosty for me), Bronzilla (maybe too 80s on me?) and Fresh Salmon. I think I’ve decided on Kumquat lipglass, if it’s not too bright. I recently got Lush and Bright and it is gorgeous, but too glittery for my 40 year old self!

        • Fresh Salmon tends to look more pinky on me, though still not straight pink or anything. I like Fresh Salmon the most out of the three you mentioned.

      • Brittany

        I know for sure I want the lady gaga viva glam. The pink color seems pretty close to victorian or bubblegum. Would you think I’d be safe skipping since I’m getting the gaga one? Just from pics you have seen of the gaga viva glam–I know you haven’t swatched yet. Thanks so much :)

  35. angie

    Hi Christine, how do you think fresh salmon compares to see sheer? Are they quite similar? Thanks!

  36. I went into MAC Pro last Friday and I asked about the Colour Forecast items. They didn’t have them out yet (the MUA told me they were coming this coming Wednesday??) but anyways, she still took me to the back and let me swatch the items so I was super excited. I was looking foward to Bubblegum the most.. which looks kind of like a mix between a lighter version of Up The Amp and sort of like Lavender Whip.. But I’m definitely stocking up on them. I tried Victorian too because I really liked your swatches of it and I liked how it looked “non-frosty” even though it’s a frost.. but it looked like a salmon-y pink to me.. was it like that for you as well?? I was bummed that I couldn’t get any of the new items but I’ll come back this week.. I got some lipmixes and other pro lipsticks instead! So excited

  37. Jennifer

    Christine
    What color to the permanent line would you say victorian is like?
    Based on your lip swatches it sort of reminds me of how Angel looks on my lips.
    What do you think?

    • None, to be honest. At best, it’s similar to See Sheer, but I think they’re pretty different!

      Angel doesn’t look anything like Victorian on me, IMO!

      • Adrienne

        My MACpro card was renewed in store and my new card hasn’t come yet. Does the pro discount apply to this collection? I can’t sign in to the website yet and it’s KILLING me. ALSO, how do you think the peach ombre will look on olive complections? CANNNOT WAIT TO BUY IT.

      • Jennifer

        Ok, good! And thanks!

        I just ordered it, Fresh Salmon, and Pink Burst.

  38. Ember

    Thanks for the great review Christine.

    I tried on every lipstick. LOL. Came away with a nice every day one, Fresh Salmon, and a more colourful one, Rose Maiden.

  39. Az

    Do you think Fresh Salmon can look like Surprise Me?

  40. Carrie

    Now I know I have to get Victorian. It’s looked so great and versatile in the looks you’ve done with this collection!

  41. eveli

    Hey Christine just wondering do yo think color me coral is kind of the same as lolipop loving from the sugar sweet collection just in a different finish?

  42. lily

    Can someone please tell me a dupe for Victorian or a similar colour by MAC?… it’s sold out:(

  43. Sam

    Are there any dupes for Mac Fresh Salmon that you know of? Is Nars Niagra close?

  44. christy

    how much are they
