The upcoming limited edition MAC Brooke Candy Collection will bring us some beautifully packaged products in both unusual and everyday hues. I am excited to be able to share with you a few pieces from the collection today. For info on the full collection you can see my post from a couple of days ago on the full MAC Brooke Candy Collection launch.
I am loving the packaging of this collection. Bright silver with black drips and grey paint splatter accents. It’s really fun and eye catching. There are some specially packaged regular product line shades in the collection so if you see any of your faves I recommend picking them up to take advantage of this limited edition packaging.
The three items we will be taking a look at today are the MAC Brooke Candy Lip Liner in Whirl, Lipstick in Mind Control, and Vamplify Lipgloss in Till Death do us Part.
The MAC Vamplify Lipgloss in Till Death do us Part ($21 US/$25.50) is a very unique shade. This intense dark purple is full of the most gorgeous fine shimmer and has a translucent finish. Just look at how beautiful it is!
Worn alone it can look a little uneven and settle into lines so I think it is best applied over the coordinating lip liner in the collection called Night Crawler or another deep dark liner or lipstick shade. I do really like the effect blotted as shown below. The gloss also functions beautifully as a lipstick shade transformer to deepen colour as I’ve shown below blended with the red lipstick Mind Control.
Next up we have one of the four lipsticks in the collection, MAC Lipstick in Mind Control ($18 US/$22.50 CAD) which is a bright cherry red in an amplified finish. This lipstick is so glossy and vibrant. Truly stunning! There is a very subtle hidden shimmer that gives the colour even more oomph. It is a very silky, glossy formula with a lightweight feel so it does transfer and lasts a 2-3 hours on me depending on how much eating and drinking I’m doing to wear away the colour.
Finally we have the limited edition version of the iconic MAC Lip Liner in Whirl ($17.50 US/$21.50 CAD). This dirty rose lip liner is such a great everyday, my lips but better shade.
