MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Lipsticks Review

MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Lipsticks

MAC's newest collection is of course MAC A Fantasy of Flowers which is a beautiful array of both bright pink, green hues paired with every day neutrals. It is very fitting for the first days of Spring without the need for over doing the pastel theme. Out of all six lipsticks I bought two (I nearly typed only but two lipsticks is still two more than I need ha!) both of which are fairly suit all shades...

The two shades I purchased are: Fleur d'Coral and Naked Bud - both are somewhat light shades but don't let that put you off. As they are lustre formulated they don't appear stark on the lips and tend to work with your natural lip colour rather than masking it. The problem with this is that it will look rather different on everyone so lip swatches are useless in this instance. Fleur d'Coral in my opinion is a light almost milky peach come coral - it has a yellow undertone and leans more orange than pink. If you like MAC's Sweet and Sour lipstick I'd imagine this is one you may want to own. 
MAC Naked Bud is one of those shades I would pass up in person deeming it a little too samey to warrant a place in my collection but in reality I'm glad I did blind buy it. A glossy neutral nude (leans somewhat yellow) with a hint of pink that prevents the shade from appearing flat or boring. On my lips it is a case of my lips but better - an easy to wear everyday nude that will flatter most complexions and work with just about every make up look. Don't over look this shade.

As mentioned both of the lipsticks I purchase are lustre which is one of MAC's sheerer formulations. On the lips they feel light and glossy but don't tend to offer a huge amount of pigmentation and aren't the longest wearing either - typically I can achieve two hours of wear as long as I don't eat or drink. However on the flip side they are one of MAC's more hydrating offerings and aren't prone to clinging to dry areas of the lips nor do they bleed or feather.

You can find both MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Lipsticks for £15 each via MAC - link and Selfridges - link.
