I don’t typically run out and buy things from MAC’s special collections (there are so many!) but after I saw a review of the Proenza Schouler by Tarababyz I was immediately interested in the lipstick in the shade “Primrose” because it was a Lustre Lipstick (my fav finish) in a deep, rich plum. I’ve been really into plummy, purpley shades lately (see this post or this post for evidence). The Proenza Schouler packaging is very cool – how neat is it to have a MAC lipstick in a square tube? It reminds me of my Burberry lipstick. The shade is so pretty. MAC describes it as “sheer berry plum” which I think describes it perfectly.
Since I was placing an order, I thought I would get a couple more of the limited edition MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils, since I was enjoying the one in “Sultana” I had picked up while I was traveling. I had, unsurprisingly, gravitated toward the dark grape shade. I ordered “Kittenish” and “Spontaneous”.
Kittenish was described as a “mauvey pink” and Spontaneous a “soft plum with pearl”. I have fairly strong pink undertones, so on me Spontaneous is more of the mauvey pink. Unfortunately, Kittenish ending up looking more full-on bright pink. It didn’t really suit me so I gave it to my Mom, who has much darker skin than me and blonde hair, and she loved it. I really like these. They are great to swipe on quickly, feel balmy and hydrating on your lips, and the colours are sheer and summery.
The Proenza Schouler Lipsticks are $26.00 CAD and all four shades are still available on the Canadian site. The Patentpolish Lip Pencils are $24.00 CAD and although Kittenish is sold out on the Canadian site, many of the other shades are still available.
Thanks for stopping by ❤
