Oh my gosh, look at all the prettiness? I love my makeup, especially my lipsticks & eyeliner. I’m a little bit vintage, a little bit grunge so a matte lippy & black eyeliner flick are my go to.
So I don’t often get carried away by pretty packaging. Or feel the need to pick up every new collection that release, even though I am a huge fan of MAC. But I just could not resist picking up a few bits from the MAC Aladdin Collection.
I mean come on, how bloody beautiful is this collection?
I didn’t get carried away, even though with this collection I probably could have! My go to items as I said are lipsticks & eyeliner. And whilst this collection did feature a black eyeliner, it was a kohl liner. Which I didn’t need as I still have a brand new one from my MAC Look In A Box.The collection actually featured four lipsticks, I went for two of the four. RAJAH on the left & WHOLE NEW WORLD on the right, both of them the matte shades which I prefer. I already have MAC lipsticks in similar shades to the first two so skipped those.
I am so, so glad I was brave & went for the bright pink as this has now sold out everywhere. I’ve been going back & forth about PRINCESS INCOGNITO. This is the one thing I really did want but I just can’t justify spending £17.50 on a shade similar to what I have. No matter how beautiful the packaging is lol.
My style of photography is more muted so I’ve included the MAC official promo images to give you true colour.
- FRIEND LIKE ME Cool neutral beige (Amplified)
- PRINCESS INCOGNITO Neutral pinky rose (Matte)
- RAJAH Muted red berry (Matte)
- WHOLE NEW WORLD Bright blue pink (Velvet Matte)
There were two blush compacts in the collab, they are same size as typical MAC Bronzing Powders (so they are larger than the regular blush compacts).
I chose YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND (Matte) which is a deep golden brown. I really needed a new matte contour colour as my current MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in TAN is almost gone. This shade looks a little darker & less orange so I’m hoping it matches my skintone better now I have a tan from our recent holiday.
The other shade ALWAYS ONE JUMP AHEAD (Frost) is a stunning gold with gold shimmer. I actually added it to my cart but then changed my mind last minute & deleted it. I have never used a gold highlight so just didn’t know if it would be a waste of money.
I normally use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle., I’ve re-purchased that so many times and am almost out. I might head into store to try out some other shades rather than buying online as I just don’t know if a gold would suit me.
Seriously how beautiful is that design? When this compact runs out no way am I exchanging it as part of the Back to MAC scheme. No matter how much I want a free lippy, this packaging is staying on my dressing table looking pretty.
There’s lot’s more in the MAC Aladdin Collection such as eyeshadow compacts, pigments & lipglasses. I just went for the items I know I would definitely love & definitely use. I’ve included a slideshow below so you can see the whole collection for yourself, and gaze at prettiness that is the Disney Aladdin Collaboration.
