Review: MAC Baking Beauties

19 Apr

Hello everyone! Another collection from MAC has been released they are on a roll for so many collections releasing this year. Just week after week of collections whew it’s hard to keep up. I only picked up two items from this collection but I expect to use them both like crazy!

Description: Lavender Whip – pastel lavender shade (Cremesheen finish), Éclair Prolongwear Paint Pot – chocolate brown with shimmer

Review: Let’s start off with Lavender Whip since it is a pretty popular lipstick shade when it was released out a while ago. I have to say that it is unlike any lavender shades that I currently own in my collection. This has a tendency to lean a bit more cooler pink than a true lavender on the lips. Cremesheen finishes are one of my favourites and as usual lasting power is 2-3 hours but a touch-up is no big deal. This has the signature MAC vanilla scent that all their lipsticks have and this did not leave behind a stain on my lips nor did it migrate around. This particular lipstick shade may look a little daunting but it is an easily workable shade of lavender. It can be a full on lavender lip or sheered out for a light purple tinged lips that lean cool-pink.

As for Éclair Prolongwear Paint Pot it has a texture that I was not familiar with it was a bit hard but was still smooth and creamy to apply. After applying it on my eye it set very quickly (about a minute) so I didn’t have a lot of time to blend it out nicely but it does work nice as a base for powder eyeshadow or even by itself it works great. The shade is a boring everyday shade but I will be able to get a lot of usage out of it. Staying power is a full 8 hours without creasing which is a great feature for cream eyeshadows. Pigmentation is great as you can tell in the swatch.

Cost: $18CDN for lipstick, $22CDN for Paintpot @ maccosmetics.ca or at The Bay or free-standing stores

Would I recommend these products? I would recommend both as they are great products that are nice pastels for Spring and everyday cream eyeshadow.
