So finally I’ve gotten round to posting about my Kelly Osbourne purchases! I brought these as soon as they appeared on the Selfridges site a couple of weeks ago, and I’m glad I snapped them up when I did, they sold out pretty much straight away!
So what’s this collection about? (As if you didn’t know!)
The most fabulous mother-daughter duo of Sharon and Kelly Osbourne come to M·A·C with a two-part collection of statement-making hues for eyes, lips, face and nails. Here, the inimitable Kelly Osbourne collaborates on a collection of fearlessly vibrant hues and tools for eyes, lips and face. Bloody Brilliant Quad Eye Shadow x 4 in pale lilac and blackened plum complement Lipstick in bright pink, orange and light lavender. Cool beige and soft pink Mineralize Skinfinish Duo highlights skin in a luxurious, mineral-rich formula for a polished perfect finish. Limited-edition packaging in Kelly’s iconic light violet with signature in red.
I wasn’t really interested in anything from Sharon’s collection, nothing appealed to me except for possibly the eyeshadow palette, but I already have lots of brown eyeshadows so I decided to pass on that. But Kelly’s collection on the other hand really caught my eye, especially the lipsticks and the mineralise skin finish duo powder and blusher. So I bought three out of the four lipsticks and the Mineralize Skinfinish Duo Powder!
The packaging for Kelly’s collection is a pearlescent lilac colour, to reflect the colour of her hair (I want my hair this colour too!) And unfortunately I’m not keen on it. It’s not the colour necessarily, but after the fabulous Proenza Schouler, Alluring Aquatic and Pedro Lourenco collections, the Kelly packaging is a bit of a let down. It’s just a bit light and plasticy. It feels a bit cheap. Never mind, anyway on to the lipsticks!
I purchased Kelly Yum Yum, a bright blue pink satin, Dodgy Girl, a light lavender matte, and Strip Poker, a light nude matte. I’m kind of torn because I do love a matte finish, but often my lips do not as they can be on the dry side. I absolutely love the colour of Dodgy Girl, and the matte finish wasn’t too drying so this is definitely a keeper! On the other hand Strip Poker, the other matte lipstick, was just not the right shade for me. You win some you lose some hey! Buy Kelly Yum Yum probably just pips Dodgy Girl as my favourite because I love the gorgeous vibrant bright pink colour and the satin finish is really forgiving and super comfortable to wear.
And finally the gorgeous Mineralize Skinfinish Duo in Jolly Good –
Two luxurious formulas in one compact. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in light cool beige, a luxurious velvet-soft powder with natural finish and Mineralize Blush in soft pale pink. Adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall polish to the face. Limited-edition packaging in Kelly’s light violet with red signature.
Again I’m very happy with this product. About a third of it is apparently a blush (says MAC) but I’d say it’s more of a highlighter, MAC described as a soft pale pink, which it is, but it’s not really dark enough to be a blush in my opinion. It also has a slight hint of gold sparkle. The other two thirds of the compact is a gorgeous light coloured bronzer, described by MAC as a light cool beige, it’s definitely a very light colour, with a golden satin finish. I knew as soon as I saw this compact that I would love it! The bronzer powder is gorgeously soft and perfect to add just a hint of colour to my fair skin tone. It leaves your complexion with a subtle glow which is exactly the look I love! If you have dull skin I’d definitely recommend this! The highlighter / blush is not quite as exciting, it’s more on the powdery side but still a fab product!
So there we have it, mostly thumbs up all round from me! Did you grab anything from Kelly’s collection? I’d love to hear if you did! xxx
