The Beauty Bible: MAC Cosmetic Fruity Juicy… Bronzed & Beautiful Skin
Hello there! How are you all? Even though it’s looking rather dull outside there’s nothing that Fizz Friday couldn’t sort out. What are you getting up to over the weekend loves?
Wedding season is almost upon us, and whilst we have already seen some pretty gorgeous weddings, we are getting a tad excited to see brides out in full force as the summer months start to kick in. Of course, summer is a great time to get married, mainly due to the lovely weather (if we are lucky), the longer days and too not forgetting the gorgeous selection of locations to honeymoon in too.
And, if you aren’t getting married, summer time is the perfect time to pack your suitcase and head somewhere much, much hotter and preferably with a pool (and a Mojito, if we are been fussy.) This is the time to ditch the heavy foundations, say ‘Buh Bye’ to dark matte lippys and switch to something, well, a little more current and loving to your skin, too.
MAC Cosmetics is forever our saviour when it comes to trends, even if it’s not to our bank balances. The popular brand has launched a new collection and it is made for summer, literally. So, today for The Beauty Bible, we are introducing you to this gorgeous new collection that is all about golden glows, bright pops of colour and extra dewy skin. The perfect combination, right?
MAC introduces this collection by saying, “Shake up the summer with a frootilicious collection of sun-kissed succulence. Take a sweet vacation of tropical colour for lips and eyes, including the online-exclusive Eye Shadow x 6: Oh My Banana. Featuring special packaging throughout! Love at first bite.” Intriguing.
Well, what I can say about this collection is that it’s pretty gorgeous. The packaging, as stated by MAC really does have summer babe written all over it. The uber-cool fruity stamp is embossed on each product and, we know it would have any make-up bag look summer ready in next to no time. It’s high drama, colourful and a little crazy too, but that’s fine because MAC never fails to amaze us with cult products and shades, so a summer edition is always a treat.
Let’s start off by talking about those lippys and glosses. There are ones for the ladies who love bright colours, and ones for those who prefer the understated nudes.
Personally, my favourite has to be the Crèmesheen Glass in Summer Succulance. It’s a pearlescent, nudey-beige. So, lovely for fair skinned people. This lip finish fuses the luxurious creaminess of Cremesheen Lipstick with the high definition shine of MAC Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Perfect for your wedding day, or to pop in your bag on your honeymoon.
If you read The Wedding Affair Blog religiously you will know that we have, and always will be true lovers of MAC Cosmetics Fix + Spray. It’s perfect for setting make-up, prepping skin before foundation, spritzing for a quick refresh and SO much more. Well our dreams have come true and as part of the ‘Fruity Juicy’ collection MAC have released a new coconut scent which will soothe and deliver a little extra hydration when you need it in the summer. Have you tried the new coconut Fix +? Do let us know your thoughts.
Next, onto the prettiest palettes. These limited edition eye shadows are once again perfect if you are seeking that high drama look, or alternatively a subtle golden peachy pop. One of the palettes reminds me very much of the Pantone Colour Of The Year, Greenery. MAC have taken inspiration from the rain-forest to create the grey-green hues that would be perfect for the Boho Bride.
Finally, we are looking to all things golden goddess. MAC has expertly mixed bronzers for a range of skin types. There’s the shimmering Lustre Drops for a totally dewy finish and then the range of powder bronzers and shimmers to add definition, blush colour or a little contour. The very best thing about this collection is that no matter what look you are seeking to achieve this summer, there is something for you.
Have you tried out any of this collection? Please do let me know what your thoughts are, as always, in the comments section below this post. I hope you all have the best weekend. x
