Review: Apres Chic Lipsticks

Hey There. Another post of swatches from the MAC Apres Chic collection. I am always looking for new lip colors that I don't have. In this collection they launched 5 new shades. Three of the shades were more on the nude, light side, and 2 were darker and bolder. 

The two that I got are ones that would be great to add to my lipstick collection. I have nothing like them. 

Apres Chic- Pinky brick red
Hot Chocolate- Dirty Plum

My favorite has to be Apres Chic. Its a perfect pinky red. This formula is a creamsheen so it is extremely smooth on the lips. 

 Apres Chic, Hot Chocolate

These two colors are definitely ones to check out.  Here is a picture of me with the Apres Chic Lipstick on......


Review: Apres Chic Mineralize Eye Shadow

The new MAC Apres Chic Collection included 5 new mineral eye shadows. I had TONS of mineral eye shadows so I decided to get 2 out of the collection that were different from what I already have. 

 I love mineral eye shadows because they can be used wet or dry. These shadows apply sheer but you can wet your brush or use a wet creamy base to make these pigmented with a metallic finish. They have a very build-able application. 

Winter Pursuit- Copper base with grey veining

Silver Birch- Grey base with peach veining

Here is a look I did using Winter Pursuit on the center of my lid.

What colors did you get? xx

Review: Apres Chic Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

Happy New Year to everyone! This is my first post of this year! The day after Christmas, MAC launched a new huge mineral collection. They usually do this once or twice a year. I was too excited. This collection is filled with amazing neutral colors. The collection is called Apres Chic. 

I am always looking for lip balms during winter for my dry lips and for summer because i love wearing something natural with a little bit of color. In this collection they launched 5 tinted lip balms. 

Picture: Applicator

These lip balms are more on the sheer side but give just the right amount of color. They look great alone and on top of another color.

I decided that I would get 4 out of the 5 lip balms in the collection. I figured I would get more use out of these colors because they are great for everyday. I didn't get the red lip balm because I don't normally wear red.

Stay Warm!- creamy light pink
Pure and Tender- plum nude
Nice and Tender- bronzy gold
Slightly Nude- coral with pink pearl undertone 

These do not have a shimmer to them but more of a creamy pearl finish. They are very creamy in texture and not sticky at all. Feels very moisturizing to the lips. Love Love!
