The MAC Fashionflower Collection includes a bevy of eyeshadows, lipgloss, lipstick and a beauty powder. The powder products include an embossed floral daisy design across it. I love makeup in limited edition packaging or any other diversion from the regular product line, such as embossing. I passed on the beauty powders, but my mini haul included Budding Beauty Lipgelee and Bows & Curtsey Eyeshadow.
Budding Beauty Lipgelee is a pinky coral with reflects gold. It comes off a bit sheer, but great for a bit of shimmer and color. It is not sticky or tacky, but will stick to hair if you get your hair close enough. It has a thinner texture than that of regular MAC lipglass and has a vanilla scent, similar to most MAC lipsticks. This is a typical squeeze tube lipgloss style packaging that I like for on the go. It is just so much easier than pulling a wand out.
Bows & Curtsey Eyeshadow is a frosty metallic dark green in a satin finish. It seems a bit dry when swatched, but works well as a crease or above crease shade. Remember the Chanel Noir Obscurs Eyeshadow Quad? Well this shade looks quite a bit like the green from the palette, but works a lot better when used.
The MAC Fashionflower Collection didn't really wow me, except for the cute embossing on the eye shadows. I do like both items I had purchased, but I probably wouldn't have gone too much out of my way to get them had they been sold out. I think the MAC Lipgelees are definitely something to pick up for those days when all you want to wear is just lipgloss without any fuss. They're also a little over 3 times the size as regular lipglass, so they last quite a bit longer.
Have you picked up anything from MAC Fashionflower? Anyone out there with some love for MAC Lipgelees like me? ;)
