MAC | Kelly Osbourne Collection

MAC Kelly Osbourne Lipstick in Kelly Yum-Yum - £15.50
MAC Kelly Osbourne Skinfinish in Jolly Good - £24.00

I simply couldn't resist the MAC Kelly Osbourne collection, I love everything about Miss O's style, and I'm an even bigger fan of her Dad's music! The lilac packaging is simply gorgeous, it has an almost silver sheen to it with Kelly's signature in red embossed on it (her mum Sharon's collection is red packaging with a lilac signature - perfect!). 

The mineralize skinfinish in Jolly Good is a baked duo of a light golden bronze sheen and a lighter pink shimmer that mix together to make a darker pink shimmer. To be honest, I'm not too sure what to use this for - it's too glittery for an all over face powder, a little too dark for a highlighter but too light for a blush. I've used it a few times as a blush topper which works nicely, and on darker skin tones I'm sure it would be a lovely highlighter. I'm sure I'll find a way to make it work eventually! 

The lipstick in Kelly Yum-Yum is a very bright candy pink, and obviously very similar to Candy Yum-Yum, which I don't own. It's very bold on me, but I've only tried it without make up on so I'm sure I'll love it when I do. It's not going anywhere anyway! The finish is Satin and it applies beautifully.

I'm so in love with this collection, I even picked up the blusher in Cheeky Bugger in a blog sale and might eve pick up the lilac lipstick in Dodgy Girl, which is still available on the MAC website.

MAC | Alluring Aquatic Haul

MAC Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Blusher in Seduced At Sea 
MAC Alluring Aquatic Lipsticks in Goddess Of The Sea and Enchanted One

I'm a little late in showing you my Alluring Aquatic haul, so I'll keep it short and sweet! As you know, MAC released this collection last month and no one could resist the amazing packaging. Both the boxes and the outer packaging of the products are an aqua chrome with 3D waterdrops! Not printed waterdrops - you can actually feel these when you run your fingers along the packaging. It's just beautiful. 

The extra dimension blusher in Seduced At Sea is described as a plum colour, to me its a very ruddy nude colour! Its not my absolute favourite blush shade, but the extra dimension formula is so smooth and creamy for a powder blush - MAC are bang on when they say its almost gel like. 

I love both the lipsticks - Goddess of The Sea is a plummy purple shade with a cremesheen finish. It's nothing like any of the other MAC purples I own and somehow a bit more wearable! Enchanted One is a peachy nude with a matte finish and I've seen it compared on other blogs to Kinda Sexy. 

It's the Alluring Aquatic packaging that I think most people have fallen in love with - MAC had better keep this standard up for future collections!
