The Daphne Guinness collection by Mac was launched in Greece 2-3 weeks ago. Although it's a substantial collection, nothing seemed very intriguing to me, apart from 2-3 items.
So, here is my little haul!
First item I wanted was the Azalea Blossom ombré blush (€29, LE, repromote) because I didn't have anything in this shade and I really liked the swatches I've seen online. In real life it is very pretty as well, a light and delicate cool pink that can be amplified depending on the amount of the deeper, lilac shade that you use. I usually swirl the brush on both shades and I get a pretty medium cool rose pink. Another thing I like is the discreet sheen it leaves on my cheeks. I was also tempted to get the Vintage Grape as well, a deeper, berry-plum shade, but it is a bit too dark for my liking.
Next thing I got is the Red Dwarf Pro Longwear (€21! LE). I really like this type of lipstick because it lasts on my lips for a while (contrary to any other lip product that disappears after a few minutes, I can't stand my lips, LOL!). This shade was also missing from my stash, it is a medium to deep pink a little mute and on the blue side.
Last item I got and totally outside of my comfort zone is the Narcissus cremesheen lipglass (€19,50 LE). It is a pink purple, quite vibrant and intense and depending on what I layer underneath it the intensity can be adjusted. When I wear it on its own, is very sweet and wearable purple pink. When I wear it over Red Dwarf, it's a deeper, very appealing purple-magenta.
Red Dwarf and Narcissus
Azalea Blossom: lilac shade, pink shade (you can't see it, LOL,), mixed together.
I 've been enjoying very much all three products, I wear them all together with light eye makeup (usually with Pink Venus on the lid, Quarry in the crease and Creamy Bisque as a highlight) and it the result is quite polished but with a little edge, I just love it.
Do you use a color that originally seemed to you a little over the top?
