I always love the special collections by Mac cosmetics, whether it’s a cool, quirky theme or if it’s a collaboration with a celebrity. In the past Mac have worked with a range of celebs on collections from Mariah Carey, to Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Ariana Grande just to name a few.
Any new Mac collection usually sells out fast so you have to be pretty quick if you have a particular item that you have your eyes on before missing out! There are always a few favourites that I will buy from these collections and so when I saw the latest ‘Oh Sweetie’ lipgloss range I was so excited to try them and fell in love with pretty much every shade! This was not an easy decision to choose a favourite shade!
There are 12 shades to choose from in the UK stores and online, but the collection was created with 16 shades so it might be that some have sold out already or that those shades were not available for the UK market. They all smell absolutely gorgeous and good enough to eat with their individual sweet scents.
I love the names of the shades too which are names of delicious desserts and sweet treats. These really are so cute and great for anyone with a sweet tooth! You have the choice of coconut macaroon, sugar cookies, raspberry pavlova, raspberry cream, gumdrop, strawberry torte, purple panna cotta, death by chocolate, caramel sugar, creamy peach pie, strawberry mouse or banana muffins. I chose the Strawberry moose shade and it smells incredible.
I really like the texture of this as they are not like the usual Mac style lipgloss that we are all used to using. These are more like a creamy mouse formula with a frosted iridescent pigment. Super pretty, feminine and flattering. I also found that these were fairly long lasting without being sticky. There is nothing worse than over sticky lipgloss that you end up getting your hair permanently getting stuck in it! It did take a few minutes to dry and settle down after I applied it but it didn’t feeling drying on the lips in the slightest.
The advertising campaigns for this range have been so eye-catching and fun, but then all Mac special collections tend to be really slick and on trend.
The ‘Oh Sweetie’ range is available in Mac stores now or online here and are priced at £15.50 each. I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts on this new range. Have you tried this range yet? If you have let me know in the comments what shade is your favourite!
