I had a look at MAC Too Fabulous the other day and personally thought it blew Spring Colour Forecast out of the water. The new Cremesheen lipgloss shades have now been introduced as permanent so I can take my time with those and check out the new shades at my leisure. I did however, ooh and ahh at the new mineralize blushes that have been released (six in total).
I chose Two Virtues and Chic Couple to come home with me. Two Virtues looks very similar to Azalea Blossom on my hand, with the exception of the shimmer in it. It shows up as a cool tone frosty medium pink, with violet purple. The purple doesn’t show up as as intense as I’d like, but when swirled together it’s bea-yoot-iful on my NC50 skintone.
My justification for its purchase is that I can use Two Virtues on top of Azalea Blossom to make it even better! Sometimes I surprise myself with my rational thinking! Chic Couple is a peachy copper with neutral brown and when swirled together shows up as a bronzey brown with coral undertones and gold shimmer. Love it!
MAC have also released 6 new lipliner shades. Now I’m don’t really tend to splash out on lipliners unless it’s a pretty nice shade, as I think you can get perfectly good ones from cheaper lines and I cleaned up on the NYX ones last year during their anniversary 50% off sale so have loads. However, on this occasion I did pick up Mouth Off as I’ve been after a soft coral liner for the longest time and have been unable to find one. Obviously there were a number of woman in London who felt as I did, as this particular shade was running very low on stock at the time of purchase in the Pro store.
Sorry, but I was unable to do any swatches as my PC is still crashing every 2 mins and I got so pissed off, I lost all patience trying to upload the pics. There are more than enough swatches on the net if you pop the shade names into Google though. Hopefully I should be getting a new laptop next weekend. I have so many posts sitting in my drafts, it’s ridic!!
What are your thoughts on Too Fabulous and what did you buy (if anything)?
