MAC Semi-Precious Lip Swatches

The MAC Semi-Precious Collection focuses on really well pigmented mineralize eye shadows, blush, and skinfinish. But it also includes Five Cremesheen lipgalsses and four lipsticks. I tried a few of them and have Cremesheen and lipstick swatches below. If you are interested in seeing swatches of the eye shadows, Mineralize Blush, and Mineralize SkinFinish, you can view those over on Beauty and Fashion Tech here: MAC Semi-Precious Swatches. I do really like some of the eye shadows in the collection.


MAC Semi-Precious Cremesheen Swatches and Lipstick Swatches

I really love MAC Cremesheen Glass. Unlike MAC’s regular lipglass, which I find can at times get sticky, Cremesheen always wears really well, plus it has better pigment to it. I finid it interesting since more pigment often is what leads to making a lipglosss sticky, so how MAC does it so well with Cremesheen and sometimes not as well with regular lipgalss baffles me. In any event, I am always happy to get my hands on new Cremesheen shades! Of the three lipstick shades I tried I also ended up with keepers.

Below are swatches of three of the Semi-precious lipsticks and three Cremeshade shades. From left to right: One of a Kind (I love this shade! It is a great neutral that I think would work very well for many different skin tones), Musky Amethyst (a gorgeous plum), Lush Amber (a nice light nude), Geo Pink (a pretty berry pink shade), Looks Like Sun (a nice plum that I don’t think is represented quite as well as it could be by the photo-it is a bit more plum than it appears in the picture), and Natural Flare.

I suspect that I will be wearing One of a Kind until it is gone. I really do love that shade!

The MAC semi-precious collection is available July 7, though August 21, 2011. Sometimes collections pop up for sale a few days early though.

MAC Surf Baby Lip Swatches

The MAC surf baby collection has a whole host of products, but what I love the most from it are a couple of the lipsticks and the suntints spf 20 lip balms. For swatches of other items from the collection, such as the eye shadows,  bronzers, cheek powder, and some really nice pigments, head on over to my post here on Beauty and Fashion Tech: MAC Surf Baby Swatches.

I was sent two of the the lipsticks from the collection, and they both happen to be shades that I really like. Below are swatches of the surf baby lipsticks in Bust Out and Hibiscus. I’m not sure that I can pull off the purple of Bust Out, although I do love it. However, I suspect Hibiscus will get a lot of wear from me this summer.

The surf baby collection also has four lipglass shades. Below are swatches of two of them in the shades Good Lovin and Krazy Kahuna. If you are a fan of brown shades, Krazy Kahuna really is quite nice. Good Lovin is a pretty champagne pink.


The lipsticks and lipglasses are nice, but what really stands out for me in the collection are the Suntints SPF 20 Liquid Lip Balms. These really are nice tube lip glosses with a light tint and good amount of spf. They feel great and look great too. I completely love mine!

Here are MAC Suntint swatches in the shades Lilt of Lily and Full of Grace (my favorite of the two).

The MAC Surf Baby Collection is set to hit the shelves on May 26. However, the MAC collections always seem to show up a bit earlier that listed.

M.A.C. Fashion Flower Swatches, Lip Products

The MAC Cosmetics Fashion Flower Collection has some really nice eyeshadow shades, beauty powders, and lip products. You can see fashion flower eyeshadow swatches and  beauty powder swatches here on Beauty and Fashion Tech: MAC Fashion Flower Swatches.

Below are swatches of three of the Fashion Flower lip products. MAC lip gelee in Now in Season and MAC Fashion Flower lipstick swatches of Summer Shower and Mlle. Both are very sheer.

Summer Shower appears aqua in the tube, but on the skin it is more of a cool silvery frost. It would be a great shade for layering over another product to create a cool toned shimmer. I rather like Mlle, it has a nice luminosity to it.

MAC lists the Fashion Flower collection as hitting the shelves on May 5, 2011. You can often find the new collections online a few days early though.
