MAC Stylishly Yours Virgin Isle Cream Colour Base Review & Swatches
MAC Stylishly Yours Collection is chock full of brights. Out of all the beautiful cream colour bases, lipsticks and pigments, I only bought Virgin Isle Cream Colour Base and Dark Diversion Fludline (review & swatches in separate post).
Virgin Isle is a orangey coral, that bears some resemblance to Joie-de-Vivre Creamblend Blush of the MAC Lilyland Collection from last year. Dabbed ever so lightly on the cheeks, it can be used for a light flush. Otherwise, used heavily and it reminds me of Raggedy-Anne cheeks. Whichever your choosing, this lasts all day, much unlike powder products. When set with a bit of translucent powder, I can wear this all day without having to worry about touching it up midday or just before heading out for the evening.
I also must mention to try this out for lips, it works wonderfully and lasts just as well as most lipsticks. Be sure to use a clean lip brush though, it'll make a much easier application.
Dual purpose and long wearing, Cream Colour Bases are definitely ones to check out :)
