MAC sure knows how to get us all in the Spring mood! The Sugarsweet collection, looks like boat loads of fun! I’m not really sure how I am feeling about the visual though. MAC goes for complete drama, and this surely wins it! I understand, it’s all about the effect. At first, I hated this image. She looked a dumb mess. But it’s growing on me. Kind of.
I haven’t had a chance to see the collection as of yet, but I must say that I am intrigued by quite a few items. Mineralized Skin Finishes are always a fun product to have. They add a lovely sheen to the skin. I own 6 or 7 of them, and use them quite often.
Perfect Topping-Pink/peach/lavender mélange
Tricolored Lipglass also look quite interesting, but I’ll have to play with them in person before I make any final decisions. They are “three stacked layers of Lipglass in one vial add a fun and playful effect to the final product. Each layer is a different colour that smoothly gradates into the next layer. Different pearl combinations give an appealing textural look to each layer.”

I’ve always been a fan of Shadesticks as well. These are a new formula with new packaging, which I’m definitely down to play with. The trick to these, In my humble opinion, is to use them on a small bit of the eye lid, and to still use a base. Then, blend them out for a sheer application. For $17, these are a really cool investment, but if you don’t use them in a more effecient way, they will make your shadow crease, which always looks a mess. One thing is for sure, I can’t wait to swatch them!!!
