MAC: A Novel Romance

(Photo Credit: Temptalia)

The MAC: A Novel Romance Collection was released online on August 14, 2014 and in stores
 August 21, 2014. It was their Fall collection based on romance novels. I know a lot of people thought the theme of this collection funny or silly, but I quite like it. This is a Limited Edition collection, and I think it will be the last Limited Edition I cover. I just don't want to show you something that is either hard to find or altogether unavailable. Since I said I'd go in depth on my Youtube video in regards to these products, here we go!   

Lipglasses ($15 USD/ 4.8g): Talk Sexy/ Bared For You 
 Lipsticks ($16 USD/ 3g): (clockwise from top left) Myself, Yield to Love, Hearts Aflame, Lingering Kiss 

I had never tried MAC's Lipglasses before this collection for fear of them being too sticky.
They are sticky, but not to an uncomfortable level. The stickiness helps them last longer. They both lasted 3-4 hours on me before fading (over lipsticks/ lip liners). The shades I chose both left a considerable amount of glitter on my lips once they wore off. I chose Bared For You (Soft Rose Gold) and Talk Sexy (Dark Purple). I don't like wearing Bared For You on its own, however I was so glad I chose it when worn over nudes (particularly ones that didn't flatter me). Talk Sexy is lovely as well, and I love the gold glitter throughout it. Overall, I do like them and would purchase the Lipglasses in the future.

Lip Swatches

Top Left: Bared For You Lipglass (Soft Rose Gold)
Top Right: Talk Sexy (Dark Purple)
Middle Left: Myself (Soft Shimmery Nude Beige) - Lustre Finish
Middle Right: Yield to Love (Mid-tone Rose) - Cremesheen Finish/ Online Exclusive
Bottom Left: Hearts Aflame (Mid-tone Brick Red) - Matte Finish
Bottom Right: Lingering Kiss (Deep Plum Red) - Matte Finish

MAC's Fun Ending Blush ($22 USD) is described as a Soft Neutral Peach, and has a Satin Finish. It has 6g of product in standard MAC packaging. As shown in the swatch above, it deepens a bit once blended out on the skin. I love how fresh faced this made my cheeks look. It lasted well over 6 hours, I saw some fading just short of the 7 hour mark.

These Fluidline Eye Pencils ($16 USD) are a new MAC product, and are basically your standard fluidline in a retractable pencil form. At .28g in each pencil, it has a lot less product than the potted fluidline (which contains 3g for the same price). The shades are really what called me on this product. Earth Sign is described as a Deep Brown, only it has some Plum tones, IMO. Water Willow is described as a Deep Khaki Green, and I would agree with that description. However, when I swatched 2 more green liners in my collection, there was definitely some gunmetal coming through. I swatched Black Ivy (Moody Blooms Fluidline) as well, for reference. Black Ivy had a lot more Blue in it.
