MAC Semi-Precious Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) includes four limited edition shades: Gem of Roses (mid-tone strawberry pink), Lush Amber (light nude beige), Musky Amethyst (deep plum), and One of a Kind (mid-tone rosy neutral).
MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste (to me). Their lustre lipsticks are designed to be sheerer in color, so the color payoff of the three lustres in this launch is as expected. Musky Amethyst, which has a frost finish, seems to be a little sheerer given its frost finish. Lustres wear two to three hours on me, while frosts tend to be better at four. In my experience, lustres are a little drying.
Haul: A bunch of products from Chanel’s fall collection
Weekend plans: Hopefully catching up on many, many neglected things on my to-do list
Are you ready for fall makeup: No, not at all; I really wish collections were a little more in step with actual seasons–sure, before it officially starts, but hey, summer just officially began. I’d rather wait ’til August!
It will be quite awhile before I can get through all of the photos and write-up reviews, so in the meanwhile, here are some group photos and swatches. The majority of reviews will not be posted until tomorrow, sorry! If it’s not pictured/swatched here, I do NOT have it at this time. Anything that is missing I will certainly buy as soon as I’m able to, but I cannot swatch what I don’t have, so my apologies in advance!!
I think all the swatches have been corrected – I always swatch in alphabetical order but something happened and they were all OUT of order!
I would love to see any looks you come up with using Jealousy Wakes and share them with Temptalia’s readers. (And if you are camera shy but still want to show me, I’d still love to see it!) Submit your looks to [email protected] by July 1st to be included in the round-up! I only ask that you submit quality photos (no camera phone pics, please!) and your name (just first is fine) — it can be of the eye only or the entire look.
Stay tuned — big giveaway tomorrow with Jealousy Wakes!
