Thoughts and swatches...
The bronze body oil from Mac's latest "To the beach" collection is perfect for summer, the consistency is very light and not greasy or oil like at all, it is easily absorbed into the skin leaving no uncomfortable residue. It gives you a very slight hint of bronze colour and leaves you with finely milled sparkles that catch the light beautifully in bright light. Perfect for the decolletage, legs and arms. Thumbs up from me!
Smashbox "Pout" lipgloss is a sheer cool toned pale baby pink, Mac "Lazy Day" lipstick is currently my favourite lipstick ever. It's a gorgeous cool toned dirty baby pink with a lustre finish. It's similar to "Angel" lipstick by Mac but sheerer and glossier as they have different formulas. It's perfect for lazy days as it provides the right amount of colour for when you want to just pop your sunglasses on and look polished.
Here they are on.
"Amber Lights" eyeshadow is a golden bronze, very pigmented and easy to wear. "Sweet & Punchy" is an amazing golden lime green, it's not similar to Bitter or Rated R in my opinion. It's close, but not quite. "Brule" is a pale cream which applies matte. Perfect highlight or all over lid colour without the drama.
"Well Dressed" blush from Mac has quickly become one of my favourite blushes, Ripe Peach being my favourite peach and Well Dressed being my favourite pink. It's a very pale baby pink with a slight cool toned sheen. I'm roughly a NC30-35 in Mac shades and this just about shows up on me if I use 1 layer, I generally apply 2. If you are into bright pinks then give this a miss. I prefer the more subtle blushes therefore this is perfect for me.
Lately I have been using my Chanel bronze universel and then applying "Well Dressed" on my cheeks which gives a beautiful finish. Must do a fotd.
