MAC Cosmetics Flamingo Park Collection

MAC Cosmetics Flamingo Park Collection

MAC Cosmetics, is literally my first love. With every post I put up on my blog, I somehow end up mentioning or referring a similar MAC product. So it’s no secret how much I obsess over MAC. Especially since they were the very first brand of lipsticks I ever used, which my mom gifted me as a young makeup lover. I regularly keep up with their newest collections and whether I’m in another country or in an airport duty-free shop, I will without a doubt, find my way to MAC. LOL. I recently got to try out a few products from their new Flamingo Park Collection. Consisting of their Powder Blush Life’s A Picnic and Loose Pigments Golden Olive and Tan.

The Flamingo Park Collection became available on February 4th, 2016 in all (North America) MAC locations. I have included the full details at the end of this post.image(Picture includes some other favourites that are not from the collection)

The powder blush in Life’s A Picnic is described as a ‘hot redish pink’ shade with a satin finish. Like all of MAC’s products, this too is highly pigmented. imageSee the swatch below:imageIt is buttery smooth to the touch and just absolutely gorgeous! I am a NC37 in MAC foundations and think this shade looks amazing on tanned skin tones. But can just as easily be worn by people with fair complexions, by using the slightest bit of the blush.imageI also tried out two of their Loose Pigments in the shade Golden Olive and Tan.imageGolden Olive is such a fun, vivacious shade. It is described on MAC’s site as a high frosted greenish gold. The pigment itself is an olive green but has a gold sheen to it.

See the swatch below:imageTan and Golden Olive (loose pigments swatched by themselves)

Tan is my absolute favourite! It is described as a ‘muted pinkish bronze with a frost finish. A shade that can be worn year round and is just absolutely beautiful. I have seen people customizing loose pigments into highlighters by incorporating it into a light moisturizer.
The loose pigments come packaged in MAC’s signature black cap and glass jar. Like the majority of MAC products they are HIGHLY pigmented. Both shades can be worn as eye shadows if you spray on a bit of Fix Plus on to your makeup brush and pick up the pigment with it. Or by itself if your eye lids have been primed to decrease the amount of fallout.imageIt can also be worn as eye liner if you use a liquid transformer or MAC’s Water Base Mixing Medium and a fine eye liner brush. As well as a metallic eye shadow. The uses of Loose Pigments are endless!imageI have included the full details of the entire MAC Flamingo Park Collection below:
