I originally thought that this collection would be online only in my country, so it was a welcome surprise to find the Philip Treacy collection displayed in my Mac Store.
I could not resist picking up one of the gorgeously embossed iluminating powders, a paint pot and a bright lipstick
as if I did not already own a gazillion bright lipsticks!
Blush Pink is a beauty to gaze at but not only that. It also gives a very subtle brightening effect when applied. I like to layer this one on my cheeks underneath my blush.
Genuine Treasure is a beautiful brown paint pot with golden shimmer. As it was the case with Deliciously Rich here it is on the sheer side. It is great for a wash of light on your lids or to give an extra something on top of another cream product. In general I love paint pots as they endure my oily lids quite well.
Hollywood Cerise is a stunning and long lasting colour. It is a mixture of a fuchsia and a berry colour and it has a satin finish. It applies smoothly and is very pigmented.
Above you can see swatches of the products.
As previously stated Hollywood Cerise is very pigmented while Genuine Treasure has a sheer or translucent formula. On the other hand, Pink Blush is a smooth but a bit powdery product that is just lighter than my skin tone.
Did you pick anything from this collection? Is there a product that you just cannot resist?

So many pretty things I had been eyeing “Hollywood Cerise”, but now that I see it swatched on your arm it reminds me a lot of Revlon “Cherries in the snow” that I already own, so I guess I´ll pass.

Well, I had been eyeing cherries in the snow myself, so thanks for the heads up on them being very similar! XD
Oh my gosh, the blush is so gorgeous!
Indeed! Depending on your skin tone it can serve as a blush or a subtle iluminator 😉
Everything looks so good! I think I would have picked exactly the same three items. x
YAY for similar tastes! I have similar products, perhaps this is why I went for these three! Simply couldn’t resist them
They all look gorgeous!xo
I just could not resist! 😉

All of these products look stunning. MAC lipsticks are drying on me so I tend to say away, but I may have to make an exception for that color.
Well, to be honest they keep launching variations of this bright fuchsias now and then, so there is not really a rush. Temptalia has some dupes listed. You might find a formula that works better on you 😉
