MAC Liberty of London Collection
MAC Lipsticks: Petals & Peacocks, Ever Hip, Blooming Lovely

MAC Give Me Liberty of London: Lipstick Reviews, Photos, Swatches

The lipsticks are in white packaging with the MAC for Liberty flowers and bird printed on the tube itself. There are four shades released, three of which are new, and one of which is PRO–Peachstock.

Lipsticks ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)

  • Petals & Peacocks is a creamy, brightened up fuchsia pink with an amplified finish. It’s like a mix of Show Orchid and Girl About Town–like the color of Show Orchid, but the texture and look of Girl About Town. It’s fun and playful, but you may have a hot pink in a similar shade.
  • Ever Hip is a peachy-orange with a glossy sheen in a cremesheen finish. On my lips, it translates a bit more coral-pink because of the pink hue of my natural lip color. It’s not quite as opaque as I’d like once it gets on my lips, but it’s a nice shade of coral.
  • Blooming Lovely is a subdued mauve-y lilac with a glossy sheen in an amplified finish. This an interesting color, because I’m not sure it’s one I could pull off by its lonesome. I’d definitely have to pair it with a gloss to brighten it up and make it more wearable for me. It’s like a lighter, more lilac version of Up the Amp, but it’s a way darker and less blue-based Saint Germain/Snob.
  • Peachstock is a peachy-nude with a very creamy finish and opaque result. Reminded me of Freckletone a bit, but better coverage and less orange.
