This has great artistic packaging which really portrays the nature of this collection. The blush ombres have magnetic closing which I really like. It feels safer to have it on this product because after all you don’t want a limited edition blush to smash.

Price:

The blush ombres were £25 each and the Lipglass was £17. I didn’t feel to bad paying that price because M.A.Cs dazzleglasses are £17.50 and they are part of the permanent collection. Also, the mineralize blushes, which are permanent as well are only £4 cheaper at £21.

I purchased the Lipglass in the shade Oxblood. (This is still in stock). I really wanted the Oxblood lipstick to go with it but it sold out within minutes on the Debenhams site. This Lipglass applies smoothly and lasts for hours. I love this shade I can see myself using this up so quickly.

I believe that M.A.C did a collection last year that included blush ombres. So of course I knew they would be really popular. So I purchased Azalea Blossom and Ripe Peach. They both look gorgeous. However, I wasn’t originally very happy with them due to the film over the top of the product. Anyone who has purchased these will know what I am talking about. There is a layer over the top of both blushes that results in poor pigmentation. It originally gave me no colour pay off and I was very disappointed. Once the film is broken though the shades of these blushes are beautiful.
