A Fantasy of Flowers

Spring is just around the corner at that means one thing - new make up collections, wahoo! MAC have just launched their new 'A Fantasy of Flowers' range and even though a part of me thought florals? for Spring? groundbreaking... (name that film) I still couldn't resist purchasing a few items.

The line is split into two sections: one based on the beautiful colours of Spring blooms, and the other based on the earthy tones of a Spring garden. All the items are mineralize products which didn't really appeal to me but the sheer-toned lipsticks definitely did. I pretty much wanted them all but ended up going for Heavenly Hybrid and Dreaming Dhalia.





Left: Heavenly Hybrid
Right: Dreaming Dhalia 


Heavenly Hybrid - "Midtone Berry"




Dreaming Dhalia - "Sheer Red Coral"

I love the fact that these lipsticks are sheer tone as it means I can get away with wearing brighter colours in the day time. They feel really light and refreshing on the lips which I know I'll be grateful for during the warmer weather. I tend to get chapped lips really easily and I find that a lot of lipsticks tend to emphasise the flakiness, but that's definitely not the case with these. They glide on really well and are fairly moisturising; I noticed that my lips were smoother and softer after wearing them so that's definitely a plus.
There's been a lot of mixed reviews for this collection, but I for one am a fan. They really are the perfect Spring lippies. I really wish I picked up Snapdragon as well but unfortunately it's sold out now booo!
I'm thinking of doing a full lipstick collection soon so let me know if that's something you'd like to see! There's still plenty of time to enter my MAC lipstick giveaway too, so be sure to check that out HERE

Ciao x

  1. Both these colours look beautiful! I definitely need to swatch these on the weekend before they sell out in store (hopefully they still have them!) as I love the lustre formula and these look perfect for Spring and Summer :)

  2. (I HAD A CHUCKLE AT THE FLORALS FOR SPRING JOKE. SUCH AN OVERUSED GIF ON TUMBLR)
    This collection intrigues me, but I'm always scared of going into MAC stores, so I haven't seen this collection in person yet! Love the Dahlia shade, but both look amazing on you!

  3. I really love both shades on you but I personally prefer pinks more! You look so great with just those lipsticks and mascara! It's simple but lovely!
