Selena X MAC - Swatches and Review

Hello, Hello!

Welcome back to the blog!

Today we are going to be looking at some swatches of the MAC Selena Collaboration.  I picked this up 2 months ago when it was first released.

I did not do swatches of it then because it was sold out everywhere.

But, to everyone's surprise, MAC is bringing this collection back.  MAC never does this!  Selena's fans were so loud and passionate, that MAC made the decision to give everyone another chance to purchase this collection.

It is supposed to launch sometime in January.  You can sign up for alerts on the MAC website!

I have been a huge Selena fan since I was teen.  I first discovered her through the movie and loved the music so much, that I looked into who Selena was and fell in love with her music and legacy.  The lipsticks are copies of ones that Selena had in her cosmetic bag and used regularly (which is so awesome).

I was so excited to see the collaboration that I was on the computer as soon as it launched and spent very frustrating hours trying to order.  The MAC website crashes, there were so many issues.

Anyhow, let's get into the swatches.


Overview





Swatch


Lipstick and Lipgloss


Amor Prohibido, Como La Flor, Dreaming of You, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass

Blush

Powder Blush Duo / Techno Cumbia

Review

Lipstick

All three shades are creamy and pigmented.  Amor Prohibido goes on sheer and adds a beautiful sheen to the lips.  They are all moisturizing and last for a few hours without eating.

I like them all and would purchase them again.

Blush Duo

The blush/bronzer duo is highly pigmented, apply evenly and blend out beautifully.  The cool tone of this compact works perfectly for pink toned ladies who have a hard time with bronzers.  This is the only bronzer I have ever used that did not look muddy on me.

I also love this compact and find myself reaching for it regularly.  I will try to buy another one as a back up when they release in January!

Were you lucky enough to snag this collection the first time around?  Are you going to order when they re-stock?

Let me know in the comments below.

Take care,
Jen
