These super-adorably packaged lipsticks are so popular, they've already completely sold out online! It's easy to understand when you see them in person: every single color is absolutely gorgeous, which is pretty unusual. There always seems to be at least one fugly color, but not in this instance. My favorites are Fleshpot, a satin nude (akin to Myth), and Melrose Myth, which if I'm not mistaken is in this photo. It's a very light hot pink amplified texture. Perfect for people like me who want to add some crazier colors to their collection but can't pull off super bright colors. The other colors, Hollywood Nights (hot pink) and Lollipop Loving (midtone coral) are also cute, but let's face it I haven't even touched my Impassioned hot pink lipstick, and L.L. is a glaze, which means it's more like tinted lip balm than a lip stick. Regardless, they're all perfect spring colors, so check em out!
2) Trio 1
You can click on it for a better idea, but now you know why I made it small: so you don't get scared of me! But you can see if they make my eyes pretty, they will make anyone's! :) Anyways, they are super cool colors. Also, if you need another selling point for pigments, you get a ton of it! The vials are packed full of pigment, meaning you're bound to never run out!
Sadly, I'm not very good at downloading photos, so this one doesn't do the Heatherette pigments justice, but if you head over to the MAC website you'll be able to see the beautiful Jardin Aires and Pink Pearl pigments for yourself. Jardin Aires is a shimmery peach and Pink Pearl is midtone pink with blue reflection. They are absolutely gorgeous together! I don't usually use pigments; in fact, these are my very first, but they are probably my favorite of everything in the Heatherette collection. Pigments are best applied over a Creme Colour Base or Paint so they have something with which to adhere. In fact, what the heck, I will include a very crappy photo of myself just to show you how pretty these colors are!
Okay that's all for the do's. That doesn't mean that if I didn't mention the product, that it isn't good. It just means they aren't as good as these listed!
1) Trio 2
I'm really sorry to put this one on the "don't" list because it looks so cool from the photo and I was super excited about it. One of my all-time favorite looks is pastel pink with purple in the crease. Seriously. However, the purple, Cassette, is way too dark for my liking. It looks normal in this photo but trying it on, it was not very mold-able, if you know what I mean. It just doesn't apply easily, and it's kind of like Beauty Marked- pretty in the container, practically black when applied. Sorry. It's a cute compact though!
2) Dual Edge Eye Pencils
When I saw this in the photos I was totally dazzled by how cool the sparkles look! They look awesome! For a craft store. Since I bought my last glitter and haven't figured out how to use it, I steered away from the new 3d Silver. As pretty and sparkly it looks, it's pretty impractical and non-functional. Okay, mostly impractical. Plus as I mentioned, if you want, you can go to the craft store and buy a huge vat of glitter for 5x less and it will still just sit in your makeup bag for the rest of your life. Wow, I just had this horrendous image of when I have kids (in 10 years). They're probably going to find that glitter and have it all over the house.
Anyways, I hope that gives you a good idea of what to expect when buying from this fabulous collection! If you have any questions about other products not listed, let me know!
