MAC Fruity Juicy Collection Haul & Swatches

One collection I’ve been anticipating the arrival of this summer is the limited edition MAC Fruity Juicy collection. The collection features vibrant tropical prints of fruit and flowers and focuses on beautiful bronzed skin and succulent shades for the lips. From the packaging to the color offerings available, everything in the collection literally screams summer. My order finally arrived and today I’ll be sharing with you my collection picks and swatches.  


Korean Fashion Designers Steve J. & Yoni P. bring their fun, colorful, and feminine flair to the latest MAC collaboration featuring colorful packaging with pops of pastel pink and vivid yellow. According to MAC, the collection strikes a spunky balance between flirty frills and sporty thrills and is as cheeky and progressive as their eponymous line. Featuring ecstatic pinks, smoky warm neutrals and playful graphic packaging, the line seemingly taps into the heart and soul of Seoul street style.


When it comes to lashes, I need all the help I can get. My lashes are naturally quite thin, short and sparse and still on the road to recovery after a not so pleasant experience with last extensions months ago. Enter in *MAC Cosmetics Bold and Bad Lash Mascara, which has a unique dual chamber package that promises to deliver. I have put it to the test and today I have my review to share with you.

Arriving this month is M·A·C Cosmetics‘ collaboration with Chinese fashion designer Min Liu. According to M·A·C, the collection is Ms. Min’s personal twist on Chinese traditionalism and her modern take on traditional Chinese motifs. As with all of M·A·Cs limited edition collections, the collection features one-of-a-kind packaging and embossing. I was happy to find it in store at the M·A·C South Coast Plaza retail location last week.

The New MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Review and Swatches

MAC Cosmetics has come out with 12 new shades of their Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks and today I have 10 of them to share with you. The colors are mostly earthy hues that consists of neutral and warm browns, yet it also includes some unique, bold and on trend shades such as Young Attitude which is a blackened teal. These shades will now be a part of their permanent collection with a total of 32 shades available on their website. 


MAC’s latest Viva Glam Campaign is in collaboration with actress Taraji P. Henson, and includes a new signature lipstick shade along with a matching lipglass. If you are not familiar with the Viva Glam campaign, every cent from the selling price of M·A·C VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. It’s a great cause, and MAC has since raised over 400 million dollars to date!  There have been many collaborations with well known celebrities over the years, and I was truly excited about this launch. I am a fan of Taraji’s work–Empire fans, anyone? I truly think the shade in this latest launch is universally flattering and could work for just about everyone.
