MAC Spring Color 3 Forecast
Radiccio – When I first saw this color I was like “eh”, but I’ve grown to really like it. It’s a Lustre so it’s kind of glossy and shimmery, which I love with muted colors like this. You know I’m all about the neutral trend, and this goes beautifully with the nudes of the season, adding a bit of color but not at all in a loud way.
Hang-up – I REALLY do not like this color. I have several deep purple/burgundy MAC lipsticks that are better than this, like Dark Side for example. It seems a bit lighter than the ones I have, but I’m just not digging it. I guess I’m just out of the dark lipstick no eye makeup phase I was in for awhile. However, this shade could look awesome on someone with a darker skin tone than mine, so maybe I should shut up. Anyway, it’s a Cremesheen, which is more opaque than Lustre but still shiny, hence the “sheen” in the name.
Purple Rage – With this collection they only put out two lipstick shades, so I’m moving on to the Lipglass shades. I’m not a huge fan of Lipglass, it has awesome staying power but is so prone to getting hair stuck in it. It’s just so sticky, I prefer a smoother less “I just blew this dude in a back alley” feel to my lip gloss. But if I was going to wear Lipglass, this would be one of my picks. I really love the shimmer on this.
Lavender Wind – Can’t really get down with this Lipglass. It’s pretty sheer, so with the metallic-y iridescence, it just reminds me of something a classic Star Trek “sexy” female automaton would have on, and not in a good way. If you’re into the “I haven’t taken a breath in over 4 minutes” look, however, knock yourself out.
Vintage Grape Blush Ombre – Blush Ombre is this new thing MAC has, where the blush is a graduated shade blending in to two similar colors, like (duh) ombre dyeing. I thought I’d include it here to introduce you to the formula. It comes in other shades that are better, in my opinion. I think this particular one is pretty in the pot, but I’m not sure how it would do on the face. Maybe I should walk down to the store at lunch and see if they have it there. I’ll report back. Well, I probably won’t, actually. So scratch that.
There’s still 3 more MAC spring makeup collections, including one from Liberty of London that has some really cute packaging. More to come…
