MAC Blue Nectar Lipsticks
MAC Blue Nectar Lipsticks

The MAC Blue Nectar Collection is a launch that features 12 lipsticks and six Plushglasses that launches online June 2nd and will be in-stores on the 9th. I have 11 of the 12 below (the missing one is actually a repromote, Ablaze, which I’ll try to re-swatch this week as I didn’t realize the MIA shade was one I already had; also Barbecue, Heroine, and Riot House are also repromotes) — full reviews to come!

Barbecue is a great repromote, esp for summer. Thought Heroine was perm. Is there any art to the lipstick tops? Oh, I get it. The photo is of your stash representatives.

So…if some of these shades are repromotes and the packaging is standard, what’s the difference between permanent Heroine and the Heroine from this collection?

(I’m all for the basic packaging, I like that all my MAC lipsticks match!)

Wow heroine looks so pretty. I’m also loving breathing fire. I got barbecue last year in the limited edition packaging and love the formula. Not sure they changed it? The lip swatch seems to have a tiny hint of sheen to it.

I was really into coral lips last year but this year maybe the year of pinks and fuschias!

Lured In, Breathing Fire, Lust Extract and Invite all look like my kinda shades. I have a feeling I already have dupes for all of them except maybe Lust Extract so that may be the winner for me pending reviews. I can tell from the swatch that it goes on a bit patchy. I just hope it isn’t too bad as the color is so gorgeous

The only one that interests me is Lush Extract, but it looks a little patchy on inner lip, and I might have a dupe. I already have Heroine (love!) and the rest aren’t flattering colors on me. And many of these look very cakey on….

I’m usually all about the purple shades, but INTOXICA. Wow. I’m baffled, though, by the lack of blue lipsticks in this collection! It would have been the perfect opportunity to release a navy, a blue with shimmer, maybe a teal…

Sweet Venom !!! Yes. That is a colour I love. I really Love Mac Betty bright and Sweet Venom seems to be very close.
Give in is a surprise. From the Description I Expected it to be a Quite boring colour but it is so nice.
There is no Need to say a lot about the bright Pink colours because I buy every bright Pink !!!! LOVE !!!!!
Really good collection. Barbecue looks better than it was in my mind. Have to search it out of my lipstick Box and try again.

Intoxica is gorgeous. Love it.
Didn’t MAC just released very similar shades to Breathing Fire and Invite Intrigue in the Flamingo Park collection? They have been releasing a lot of Flat Out Fabulous and All Fired Up similars. It’s time to get their creativity adjusted… just saying it 😛

Any idea on the finishes? Will you do dupes? I want at least 6 of these! I have riot house and love it! Think I need a back up! Thank you

It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again, why call it Blue Nectar if there are no blues? Seems like a missed opportunity. But regardless of the weird naming choice, these are great colors. Barbeque is gorgeous (and it’s making me hungry), and Invite Intrigue is aptly named.
I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the “vibe tribe” collection, but I might get over it and get one of these.

I’m sitting here, going “Heroine looks nice,” but even without a dupe list, I’m 99% sure I’ve more than one dupe for Heroine. XD

Primpcess Avatar

All these colours are so nice, and a majority of them are right up my alley, but I’m almost positive I have dupes for all the ones I like. I’ll save my $$ for some of the more unique UD colours.

I can’t believe MAC came out with Intoxica just as I purchased Bite Beauty Radish last week! To me they appear quite similar (btw, this colour is so gorgeous for summer!). However, Bite’s formula isn’t working for me (lots of transfer and colour not staying true to shade during wear), so I might just return and purchase the similar MAC shade. I’m always happy with my MAC lipsticks and saving some $ is always a good thing.
Also, Invite Intrigue looks very close to Have Your Cake from Flamingo Park. I wonder just how similar they are? I’m anxiously awaiting the reviews on these Christine.
But, I’m just loving this collection and it will require some serious restraint not to load up here.
