MAC Proenza Schouler Mini Haul & Review

mac proenza schoulermac proenza collection review

So it would appear I couldn’t quite restrain myself. After my little Alluring Aquatic haul, MAC then released their Proenza Schouler collection at Selfridges, and as soon as I saw the ombre blushes I knew I had to have them, or at least one. I couldn’t resist! So I only bought three things, which is pretty good, right? I went for the Blush Ombre in Ocean City, and Lipsticks in Woodrose and Pinkfringe.

The Proenza Schouler packaging is fabulous. I must say in my opinion MAC have really stepped up their game with their latest collections. The Proenza Schouler collection comes in sleek metallic oil slick coloured casings, with an ombre effect and bold printed logos.

The Ombre Blushes are simply stunning. There were two options to choose from, the above Ocean City, or pink toned Sunset Beach – I would have bought both if i could have justified it. Ocean City is described as a coral orange ombre into beige. It has a lovely mid beige-orange on the lighter side, and fades into an intense bright coral-orange.

This collection included four lipsticks in total, and I went for two of them. Woodrose which is described a s a light pink with beige lustre, and Pinkfringe which is a vivid flamingo pink satin.

Woodrose is a lovely nude light beige, and as it’s a lustre finish it was pretty sheer but surprisingly I really liked that! I usually prefer a more opaque finish but I think the sheerness of this lipstick made it really wearable. The formula was creamy and applied evenly. I can see this being a staple in my makeup bag this summer!

Pinkfringe is a pretty medium pink, mostly opaque with a frost finish. This lipstick felt slightly less creamy than Woodrose and did seem to highlight any dry bits on my lips. I’m not amazed by this but I do like it, and it’s a lovely colour that will definitely get used.

Overall I’m really happy with these products – I still wish I’d have picked up the other blush though but never mind! So… have you noticed something is missing in my post?

I didn’t swatch, or test the Ombre Blush. I’m sorry. I couldn’t do it. It’s too pretty to use 🙁

Now I’m writing this I feel like a bit of an idiot, it’s just makeup for God’s sake!! I just couldn’t bring myself to sick my finger it, or brush. I couldn’t ruin that beautiful ombre sunset…

On that note, do you have any products you don’t dare use?? I’d be interested to hear if you have any that are too pretty to touch! xxx

    Nothing really caught my eye from this collection initially, but those ombre blushes are so beautiful! Really tempted to get one.

    I agree with the pink fringe assessment – did the same on my lips (which are notoriously dry). I did get the other blush and I have to be honest and say I haven’t worn it because it’s too pretty lol!
