Just a Couple of MAC Lipsticks..

If we're being honest here, I should admit that it's been some time since any of the MAC limited edition collections have wowed me. I try so hard--swatching and contemplating; but for the last few, they've come off as just a bit...meh.

No need to fear. There are always 3,000 good MAC lipstick choices to rummage through. So recently I did just that, choosing two that happen to always be placed next to each other.

The first is Impassioned--a bright coral/watermelon pink. This one packs a starbursty punch of color..almost so much so, that it can prevent you from wearing it. Chatterbox is the second pink. It's much more wearable, with slight blue undertones. Surprisingly, either of them look very daring when swiped next to each other. The true difference comes through on the lips, and I will update with lip swatches soon.

In other earth-shattering, ground breaking news..we celebrated a family birthday a couple of weeks ago. I prepared an orange chocolate cake (what can I say, I'm a Jaffas addict)--and I thought these little birthday candles topped it off nicely. You know, just in case any family members were confused as to what we were celebrating...

Speaking of celebrations..how about that Royal Wedding? I was glued to the television for a good 7 hours straight. Absolutely stunning!

What is your favorite MAC lipstick? Err..any other Jaffas fans?

Ohh me too I am a huge fan of jaffa things. Orange and chocolate were made for each other!!

Yummy cake! My friends got the same type of candles for another friend's baby shower :)

You caved in and got Impassioned and Chatterbox! The latter looks especially interesting...

@tali: this one had the tiniest bit of lavender in it as well...it actually goes quite well with the chocolate and orange!

@rocaille: i did cave--no willpower here! chatterbox is definitely more wearable..

I like that Impassioned shade, think it would make a nice lipstick for Spring. As for the Royal wedding I watched recaps as I was working.

It's like you read my mind when writing this post! The past few MAC collections have underwhelmed me too....in fact, a couple days ago I went to check out the popular Ever Hip lipstick and it didn't do anything for me so I ended up picking up a permanent color See Sheer, a more wearable coral for me.

I too was enamored by the royal wedding....don't you just love a good wedding...especially when two good-looking royals are the bride and groom!?!?

fantastic said...

@BeautyParler: I would have had a hard time working while watching--would probably have focused too much on the screen ;)

@kajal couture: I'll have to check out See Sheer--Ever Hip just never worked on me. Yes, the wedding was gorgeous! And that dress!

Tina said...

Oh that cake looks so yummy and I love the happy birthday candles instead of the usual numbered ones! ;)

The lipsticks look super hot for this season, bang on trend! ;)
