MAC Flamingo Park Collection and Swatches

MAC's Flamingo Park collection is currently in stores. It's a traditionally feminine collection with lots of pinky bubble gum hues. Some tried and tested favorites are back in this collection, like one of my all time favorite lipsticks, MAC St. Germain, and one of my favorite MAC pigments, Rose is included in this bunch too. One of the beauty powders from this group that I suggest is the Beauty Powder in the shade Sunny Surprise - you can get a great sheen / highlight from this.
Below are my swatches and some campaign images from this collection.

New MAC Collab

Pictured here are MAC Flamingo Park Creme Sheen Glass, in Playful Petal, and Look Who's Here, with a blush in the shade Pink Swoon.
Playful Petal is a traditional Creme Sheen formula. If you're not familiar with the Creme Sheens, they are less tacky and more fluid than regular MAC LipGlass. In the tube, it looks like it has bright pink sparkle with hints of blue glitter. It swatches out less opaquely and really just adds sparkle and shine to the lips. Look Who's Here is a nude lip gloss that swatches opaquely. I love to layer it over my favorite daytime lipstick or on top of a nude lip color to intensify the nude lip.
I don't have great luck with MAC Blushes. I don't find them that pigmented and in my opinion they don't last on my skin as long as I'd like, even with a makeup setting spray. Pink Swoon feels very nice,though, like a finely milled powder. It's very smooth. It's packed pretty well in the tin, you do have to swirl your brush around a bit to get some color but it does add a good pink flush to the cheeks. 

MAC Rose Pigment swatches
MAC Rose Pigment is my favorite rose gold pigment to use. This is more rose colored than gold. Some say it's a dupe for Too Faced's Satin Sheets but it's a lot more pink than that shade. It's a great shadow to layer on top of a base color to really change the look of your eyes.
