Happy Hump Day loves!! Wow how did it get to be Wednesday already?! Before Christmas I got a surprise package at my door, completely wondering what the heck it could be since it was such a weird shape, well Christmas came a littler early when it was the full new collection of the MAC Shadescent fragrances and matching lipsticks all in the absolute cutest packaging ever! MAC launched the collection last month and introduced a new fragrance to their most iconic lipstick shades! Since I am a huge fan of Ruby Woo, My Heroine, and Candy Yum Yum I couldn’t wait to rip open the packaging and try out the new fragrances! This is what I thought about them! <3
Creme D’Nude lipstick is a pale muted peach color with a light sheen to it. It is definitely way too light on my fair skin, but I think it will be gorgeous layered with some of my favorite shades to tone them down a bit. I also think it would be gorgeous on darker skin tones. As for the fragrance Creme D’Nude has notes of ambrette seeds, neroli, velvet musk, and Madagascar vanilla bean. I really love this one because I am a sucker for anything with a slight vanilla smell to it and this one with the combination of the clean musk really makes it hit!
Velvet Teddy is a super creamy nude that has more of a slightly pinkish brown tint to it so it gives just the right amount of color to your lips! This is the perfect every day shade, not to mention it’s one of Kylie Jenner’s favorites! As for the Velvet Teddy fragrance, this one is definitely my favorite with an oriental wild honey smell complete with creamy musk, bright bergamot, ginger zest, tobacco flower, golden mimosa, vanilla orchid, papyrus root, and tonka bean. Ya that’s a lot but it totally works! This scent is completely unique and I think that’s why I love it so much!
Candy Yum-Yum is definitely the perfect statement lipstick! It’s matte creamy finish makes this bold shade go on like butter! It almost has a bold neon look to it and totally screams Barbie’s night on the town to me, but in a total good way! As for the Candy Yum-Yum fragrance it pretty much smells exactly like you would think it would, a burst of fruity goodness with a hint of sexy! It has notes of tropical fruit, pink cotton candy, cherry blossom, Moroccan iris, pink guava, and vanilla. If you like the girly, fruity perfumes this one is for you!
Lady Danger is the perfect classic red matte shade with a hint of orangey undertones. It is a bold, sultry shade that will definitely make you stand out in a room! As for the Lady Danger scent, I really like this one, but don’t completely love it. I love a good sultry fragrance and this one is nice and spicy! It is described as woody floral that mixes notes of golden patchouli, saffron, tangerine, tiger orchid, jasmine, and black amber. It is definitely sexy!
Ruby Woo is by far one of my favorite red shades! This matte is a little dryer but the shade is totally glam and perfect for the holidays or a night out! The Ruby Woo fragrance I am not super crazy about, but still totally didn’t dislike. I am not a huge fan of leather notes, but the more I smelt it the more it started to grow on me. It has a woody floral smell to it containing notes of red leather, wild cherry, saffron, pink pepper, suede violet, Orris Florentine, Centifolia rose, sandalwood, and mahogany wood. If you like the sexy woody scents, you will love this one!
My Heroine is the perfect deep berry shade for when you want a little edge in your life! It is another creamy matte that is definitely a show stopper! As for the My Heroine fragrance, to be completely honest, I did not like this one in the least bit. It is way to strong for my liking and smells a little too manly. It’s described as a woody leather fragrance that mixes notes of Cordovan leather, saffron, labdanum, smoky incense, patchouli, and tobacco. If you like those deep smokey leather scents you will love this one, it is just not for me.
Overall I really loved this collection and loved how unique and different each scent is! The lipsticks are currently $17 and scents are $57. I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday! <3
