MAC A Novel romance collection – Fun ending blush and Bared for you lipglass

A Novel Romance is MAC’s fall 2014 collection. Traditionally MAC releases massive fall collection at the end of August. I have to admit these have been my favorite collections in the past couple of years. This time I only picked up two items – Fun ending blush and Bared for you lipgloss. Honestly none of these two are unique and I could probably skip them easily. Collection also has three different eyeshadow quads that I am trying to avoid since I do not need any more eyeshadows (in my lifetime probably).

Fun ending blush is described as soft neutral peach with a satin finish. Satin finish from MAC is OK, not my favorite but not bad either. Color wise this at least on me does not look like peach at all. It’s straight pink and I think this is one of the main reason I am so disappointed by it. Color on me turns into a boring dull pink with flat finish that doesn’t compliment my complexion at all.  Also not really pigmented – I had to make 3 or 4  swipes with my finger to get the color to show up in my swatch photo (see below).
There are so many light pink blushes out there that have ten times nice finish and texture so Fun ending is a total miss for me. Although I was told from other girls who bough it that I probably got a dud based on my swatch – theirs is much more pigmented. Oh well that’s a second one in a row after fiasco with fluidline from Moody blooms. I barely ever return anything but Fun ending is going back… I think that tells you all.

I feel so bad that I couldn’t get more accurate swatch of Bared for you lipglass. It is SUPER pretty nude with high glossy finish and beautiful multi colored shimmer. It is not sheer, it gives medium coverage and is very flattering not corps like nude lips. I am so pleasantly surprised by it I really didn’t expect I would love it so much. Wears so nicely on lips doesn’t bleed around and it’s nicely moisturizing. I love MAC glosses. In the photo above it looks way to brown than it really is. I tried taking more photos just with my camera phone to show you more accurate color.

Overall one hit and one miss. Not bad it could have been worse.
