MAC Spring Colour 1 Forecast Collection Reviews and Swatches

Featuring a gorgeous selection of cool-toned pinks and purples, Spring Colour 1 Forecast is the perfect collection for those who like that pink Barbie Doll makeup look.

Lipstick ($14)

From left to right:
* Phlox is a very sheer light pink color that will add nothing but a bit of sheen onto your lips.
* Laugh-a-lot is a warm mid-tone pink.
* Bubble Gum is a gorgeous cool-toned light pink with lavender undertones. It is on the frosty side.
* Pink Burst is a frosty bright medium pink that is very Barbie-like.

Lipglass ($14)

From left to right:
* Hush, Hush Rose, my favorite, is a medium cool-toned pink with gold glitter.
* Electric Fuchsia is a bright magenta with blue glitter and the darkest out of the three.
* Cultureclash is a light baby pink with tons of silver glitter.

Eyeshadow ($14.50)
These eyeshadows all have a smooth texture and great pigmentation.

From left to right:
* Da Bling is a medium golden pink and the only permanent color.
* Rosy Outlook is a shimmery light pink.
* LaLa is a shimmery medium pink.
* Very Violet is a shimmery dark purple.

Crush Metal Pigment: Stacked 1! ($32.50) – This is a new product from MAC. It contains 4 Crush Metal Pigments and comes in a stackable pigment jar that is sold at the Pro store. The colors are a silvery light pink, a medium pink, a silvery lilac and a dark purple – which are all really frosty. They have a chunkier texture compared to regular pigments but they do blend nicely once applied. If you like pigments and do not have similar colors, this is a great buy.

Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom ($25) – This is also a new product. It is a blush but the MA recommends using it as eyeshadow as well. The color is a light pink that gradually turns into a violet. The powder itself is very fine and does go on very smoothly.
