Mac for Daphne Guinness

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?


  1. So you got the Azalea Blossom blush! I can't lie, it looks just gorgeous! Enjoy wearing it, hun ;)))

  2. The blush is amazingly beautiful but I am convincing myself that I 've made the best choice with Benefit's Hervana so that I won't feel jealous lol.
    Really nice all of them

  3. Thanks girls but I'd better start saving some cash because with all these spring collections coming I' ll be broke in no time! Desicions, desicions!

  4. I love the AAzalea Blossom blush but I cannot afford it. I have to save money for the Vera spring collection.


Thank you!
