By now most will know that I am a complete MAC girl it is fairly rare that a collection will appear online and I will not order at least a handful of items but truthful I tend to stick to what I know - lipsticks, blushes and eyeshadows. MAC Indulge launched online and I bought a few lipsticks and an eyeshadow based on the swatches I had seen on a few of the larger US blogs. Fast forward a few days later and I found myself strolling around my local MAC store and was oddly once again drawn to the Indulge collection but this time around it was the lip glosses that were calling my name...and a fluidline. Whoops!
Luckily both of my top picks are still available despite the collection having launched over two weeks ago so should you like either you can still purchase them with ease. Believe it or not I tend to loathe lip gloss - the sticky texture, the lack of colour pay off and basically preferring matte lip shades. Now I'm not going to pull the wool over your eyes for one moment and tell you that MAC's Lipglass formulation is not sticky to some degree because it is but the difference is that it is bearable - it doesn't feel gloopy or thick but let a gust of wind come your way and yes your hair will stick to your lips. Sexy! The shade that appealed to me most was Fashion Punch which is a mid toned neutral pink and a great glossy pink nude for those with a medium complexion. The kicker for me is that unlike some glosses MAC Fashion Punch is well pigmented so rather than just delivering a faint glossy tint the shade is evident on the lips not to mention it adds a little dimension to other nude lip shades - MAC Mehr works beautifully with it. In terms of wear we are talking around two hours max which isn't mind blowing but it isn't poor either!
As you may or may not know I have small hooded eyes so liner doesn't rank all that high on my priorities as it tends to go unnoticed and yet I went home with MAC's Fluidline in Deliciously Rich. If you are a fan of neutral eye shades but with a little oomph then this is the one for you - a rich cool toned chocolate brown with teeny tiny golden flecks of glitter scattered throughout, it truly is stunning. MAC's Fluidline in Deliciously Rich is creamy and glides on with ease making lining your eyes a breeze particularly if you use a fine brush. However this little pot of chocolate goodness also doubles up as an all over wash of colour much like a cream eyeshadow but to ensure it stays put all day I do suggest teaming it up with a primer. With the double usage and a wear time of easily 10 hours this really is a great product that shouldn't be missed.
You can find both the MAC Fashion Punch Lipglass £14 and MAC Fluidline in Deliciously Rich £15
