MAC Flourish Lipstick ($22.00) on my lips! :)  Oh yeah, Flourish is a lighter, pinker version of Queen’s Sin.  They’re similar, but they aren’t the same–Queen’s Sin packs a lot more oomph and it’s redder.

As promised, here’s a clear shot of Flourish lipstick! :)  Flourish is the red lipstick, and pink lipstick is All Mine.  Both of these are from MAC’s Monogram collection and retail for $22.  Below is a close-up shot of the actual MAC monogram–in case you missed it (I did the first few times around!), the design is actually an overlay of M A C.

Distinguished, Identity, Monodramatic, Posh Life

OVERALL, Monogram offers a nice selection of lipglosses and lipsticks, but you can probably skip the rest! This year’s lipgloss formula is very similar to Dazzleglasses–both the chunkier shimmer (dazzle!) and the nonsticky formula really make them similar. They do not feel like the formulas they used in Couture or Stylistics (unfortunately for me). I picked up one gloss (Identity), but I wasn’t sold on it, which just made me sad, because I look forward to the luxe lipglosses every year. I did like the lipsticks more this year, even though the packaging felt cheap and plasticky (despite looking like “gold”). The pigmentation was good, none of the colors were overly frosty, and the shades are suitable for most people. I ended up getting All Mine and Flourish–I admit, I do not need another red, but I picked up because I seem to get every luxe red, so why not? I passed on the Sheer Mystery Powder, as I already have one from last year that never gets used. The Sheerspark powders were like past years–so utterly disappointing for me. I really wish MAC would replace the Sheersparks with something else–they just never seem to be a huge hit with most addicts I’ve talked to (including me!). I find them not pigmented enough to use as blushes/shadows and the glitter is too chunky to be a highlighter. I’m so pleased to see the Air of Style perfume housed in a much more practical bottle this year. I purchased last year’s version, which has cool packaging, but the perfume cannot stand up at all, which means it stays in its box and out of reach.
