Recently MAC released two collection that caught my eye, Daphne Guiness and Iris Apfel. From Daphne Guiness, I knew I wanted the ombré blushes, so I picked up both Azalea Blossom and Vintage Grape. I’ve been wearing Vintage Grape, a sort of violet plum, almost non-stop. It’s darker than I normally wear, but I feel it’s flattering on me when applied with a light hand. Azalea Blossom is a lovely soft shade of pink. From Iris Apfel I picked up Party Parrot, though I had my eye on Flamingo and Pink Pigeon. I ultimately passed on Pink Pigeon because I have a lot of bright pinks. Sadly, Flamingo was sold out by the time I got home and logged on to purchase. I did end up trying to track Flamingo down in store, as I went to International Plaza in Tampa to get it. However, I was told that they were sold out by noon. I would have been completely disappointed by that if I hadn’t remembered that I just recently picked up a full size of Venomous Cosmetics Lip Poison in Flamingo. While lip poisons are a gloss, they’re quite pigmented, and this shade is similar enough to suit my needs.

$26 for 9 g /.31 US oz blush ombre
$14.50 for 3 g / 0.1 US oz lipstick

Shade Descriptions:
MAC Azalea Blossom (Daphne Guiness) – light cool pink
MAC Vintage Grape (Daphne Guiness) – mid-tone violet pink
MAC Party Parrot (Iris Apfel) – bright red-pink (matte)

I really do like the blushes and I feel like it’s a pretty good amount of product for the price. I like the lipstick, especially since it’s a matte. Matte + bright = fun :)

Out of the many, many collections released by MAC lately, I think that these are two of the best, probably because of their muses, Daphne and Iris.

Did you see anything you had to have from these two collections? If so, what called your name?
