MAC Osbourne Haul & Review

Ello Lovelies!

A quick haul and mini review from me today! I've been trying to sort through my holiday goodies for some posts and potentially a couple of videos but considering how hot these products are, i thought i should get this up ASAP! A good few months back Sharon Osbourne shared a picture of her palette from her then upcoming MAC collection and i was pretty much hooked at first sight.
 
I'd been checking online for this release for days and somehow i completely missed the launch and everything sold out online within the hour. Needless to say, i was not impressed. Luckily Southampton now has a MAC counter and i was able to get in touch and find out if they had stock in... They did so i ran like a crazy woman into town. Oh how i do wish MAC would give definite release dates, it would make me (and many other MAC fans) much happier!

I really only wanted the two lipsticks i picked up but i have absolutely no willpower and picked up a couple more bits from the collection. Jolly Good Mineralize Skinfinish and Peaches And Cream Blush... What can i say? I'm a sucker for packaging!
Being so fair i usually skip on most of Mac's MSF releases as generally their bronzers are either too dark or too orange for me but Jolly Good looks rather promising! You can use each segment individually or swirl them together and as far as first impressions go, i really quite like it! It is very powdery so i have to use a light hand but i really love this so far for giving an all over glow to the face. And thats a pretty rare thing in an MSF for fair skinned ol' me!

 Ignore the name, Peaches and Cream is an extremely pretty pink blush. It actually swatches far darker than it looks in the pan which is surprising (or could be a downside for some people) and I've got to say I'm pretty smitten with this too! Its super pigmented but when applied with a light hand (i have a habit of going overboard with blushes and looking like Aunt Sally) it looks pretty damn good if i do say so myself. The shimmer translates to more of a sheen on the skin and gives the illusion of a healthy flush or glow to the face. This one gets a big thumbs up from me too!

And last, but definitely not least is the lipsticks! The main reason i ran like a mad lady to my Mac store for. Now i haven't worn these yet so can't give these a real review or first impressions but I'm rarely disappointed with a Satin or Matte Mac lipstick so I'm pretty sure its going to be love. Kelly Yum Yum takes a slight twist (and i mean slight) on the oh so popular Candy Yum Yum. To me Kelly's version is a smidge darker and warmer making it a hell of a lot more wearable for me at least. And not forgetting Dodgey Girl... We're all a bit crazy over purple toned lippies lately aren't we? I had my worries that this wasn't going to be lavender enough for my liking but I'm pleased as punch with it from the swatches. Now i just need to be able to pull it off!


If like me you've been lusting and waiting for this collection for months i wouldn't hang around to snag your favourites up. The collection sold out within the day online so I'd make a speedy trip to your local counter! I don't think I've been this enthusiastic over a Mac collection in years! But for my no buys sake, i need to avoid the rest of the years launches!



Did you pick anything up from this collection?

What was your favourite?
