Of course the whole beautysphere will be talking about this and there are already a million reviews on the Fashion Sets 2013 Collection from MAC. There is a good reason for this.
Some of you maybe familiar with the Fashion Sets Collection, which has been done previously. I believe it was last year that MAC came out with an extensive range of shades,around 16; most of which were permanent apart from the lipglasses and Nail colours.
This year they brought out 4 gorgeous shades, Ablaze, Embrace Me, Silly & Heroine which is a re-promote from the Reel Sexy collection. All these shades are matte formula.
Ablaze is a beautiful neon coral with a warm tinge to it. So its a powerful, in your face shade and a statement in itself. This is one of those shades that will look great on every single skin tone, from pale skin to dark; taking you through summer swimmingly.
It wears beautifully on the lips without drying them out, even though it is a matte formula. I would recommend moisturizing your lips just to give extra ease when applying it. There is nothing like Ablaze in Mac’s current lipstick collection and that is why this little one stood out to me.
Right, lets break this down.
Pigmentation- It’s highly pigmented and gives it great colour payoff in just one wipe. Of course you can build the intensity with 2-3 which will give it a neon hit! Perfect for those sun-kissed days.
Application- Like I said before, applied smoothly and glides on like a dream.
Longevity- It lasted a good 6 hours for me without eating and drinking, and I was then left with a beautiful coral stain at the end of its working day.
Because this has such a warm undertone to it, I found it made my teeth look slightly yellow and that would be my only ‘blah’ factor for this one. Apart from that I think this will easily become my go to Coral for summer, and already regretting not buying a back up of this!
Hope you guys get a chance to grab this one! I got mine from House of Fraser, and the Mua at the Mac counter was so lovely!
Look how neon this looks with a tan! Me love this long long time….
Are you beauties having a lovely sun-kissed weekend?
