MAC Give Me Liberty of London Swatches & Review

Saturday, March 6, 2010

Luckily my local Nordstrom has these out for pre-sale so I'm able to do a couple of swatches of the collection due out on 3/11/2010. All swatches are on NC30 skin.

The collection has very cute packaging with white casings and birds and flowers on all the products. Good thing is these are not stickers on the package but actually printed on.  The colors are definitely very spring with a good mix of pinks/peach/coral.

What will you get from the collection?

MAC's Too Fabulous collection - Swatches and Review

Here are swatches and review for the creamsheens and mineralized duo blushes



Please do not link or copy images without permission.
  
Boy Bait is a light nude with a tint of pink.  It is a repromote shade.  I think it's a nice to layer over a lipstick to add a sheen. By itself, it's very sheer.

Partial to Pink is also a repromote that's a darker pink than Boy Bait.  This by itself would be a MLBB look on lighter skin tones.

Loud & Lovely is like it's name, loud but definitely lovely.  It goes on opaque and is not sheer like the others.
