Review & Swatches: MAC x Ellie Goulding

Since I was very excited of the collaboration, I thought I would do a short review and swatches of these beautiful lipsticks and powder blush.

As a neutral and nude make up person, I am super excited to try these out because it is MAC and it is the exact colour scheme I normally wear. They come in a range of eyeshadow palettes, lip glosses, lip pencils and several other products. However, I ended up getting my hands on both of the cremesheen lipsticks and powder blush.

  I strongly adore the packaging. Glossy black and gold linings give the exclusive feel.

The Cremesheen Lipsticks

Only You
Without Your Love

The cremesheen finish of the lipsticks give a glossy moisturised effect on the lips. It gives the healthy looking shine with a very neutral colour. For me, it is a "my lips but better" colours. Only Love is more of a peachy pink colour, whereas Without Your Love is a very soft and sheer pink. I totally can see myself wearing both colours a lot this Spring! It is very Spring 2016 appropriate!

The Powder Blush

I'll Hold Your Breath || Medium Warm Bronzer (Satin Finish)  / Peachy Pink Pearl Blush (Matte Finish)
Left: Blush || Right: Bronzer

The blush is highly pigmented in comparison to the bronzer. The peachy tone colour is amazing for everyday especially for Spring. The bronzer is more of a buildable bronzer with a hint of sparkles, which I personally love. If you are looking for a natural bronzer here it is! It is not a matte finish, so I would not recommend this if you are aiming for the matte finish.
