Mac Cinderella Collection Review, Swatches & Giveaway

/
82 Comments

Hey loves!

Okay. I cannot remember the last time I was so excited about makeup, EEK! So MAC came out with their Cinderella collection (I'm sure you've all heard by now) and I'm honestly so happy with the amount I managed to pick up considering how fast it sold out! And can we just take a minute to appreciate the packaging please, SO pretty! Overall, I'm in love with the collection! Everything is super wearable so there's nothing too intense or intimidating, the only thing I would say is that it definitely would seem to work better on lighter skin tones so you might want to bare that in mind if you're thinking of picking anything up in store tomorrow!

(Giveaway on YouTube http://youtu.be/WCjVV-taOQM)

Let's have a look at everything individually...

Stroke Of Midnight Palette, £38.50

From left to right: Vapour, Phloof, Omega, Quarry, Satin Taupe, Stroke Of Midnight
So the Stroke Of Midnight Palette is probably my favourite product from the whole collection. The only downside is probably the fact that the majority of the shadows are actually permanent shadows by MAC, with Stroke Of Midnight being the only one that is limited addition.

Nonetheless, the way that MAC have combined these shadows together in the palette is beautiful, they all compliment each other so well: Omega and Quarry are the perfect crease/transition shades, Phloof makes a lovely lid colour and Satin Taupe & Stroke Of Midnight work wonderfully to darken up the outer part of the eye if you're after something more dramatic! 

They're all super pigmented and easy to blend, which you should probably expect considering it costs £38.50! 
PS - ignore my brows in the photo below, I'm aware they're in need of a good pluck:')

Lid: Phloof & Reflects Pearl Glitter (see next product) Crease: Omega/Quarry. Outer V: Stroke Of Midnight/Satin Taupe. Lashes: Red Cherry #415

Reflects Pearl Glitter, £18.50

The glitter is not something I intended on buying but I'm honestly so glad I managed to grab it now that I've played around with it! Whilst it is VERY (I mean very) messy and tends to fall out all over your face, it's very easy to work with and build, and once it's on the lid it stays put! 

I love the fact that you can't see the individual specs of glitter, just the shimmer/sparkle when it hits the light!

Beauty Powder - Mystery Princess (Left) Iridescent Powder - Coupe D'Chic (Right), £23

The two powders were something I was 100% determined to get my hands on when the collection came out, and again they didn't fail to impress! 

I was pretty worried at first considering the amount of glitter that Coupe D'Chic has in it, however I used it as a blush to add a bit of colour back into my cheeks and the glitter itself was hardly noticeable and basically added a healthy looking glow and sheen!

Mystery Princess seemed as if it would go the opposite way for me and not have enough of a sheen to act as a highlight for my cheek bones, however it was very buildable and gave a really natural looking glow. It was also perfect to highlight the rest of my face with, which I really enjoyed as a lot of the highlighters I own can be a bit too intense!

To sum that all up, if you're after two natural looking powders, these would be perfect (and let's not forget that the packaging is to die for!)

Royal Ball Lipstick (Left) Free As A Butterfly (Right), £17

The two lipsticks that MAC came out with for this collection are 100% right up my street!

Lustre's are one of my favourite finishes due to the fact that they're super moisturising on the lips (which is useful for me considering my lips are chapped/dry 99.9% of the time).

Let's take Royal Ball first - this is hands down my favourite lipstick of the two. It's a neutral rosy pink/peach shade with a sort of gold sheen to it. I found that both lipsticks have a gold sheen to them, which I haven't seen in MAC lipsticks before. It's really hard to explain but when you apply it to the lips it makes more sense! Royal Ball is the perfect shade for spring and summer for light to medium skin tones!

Free as a butterfly is still lovely but because it's so nude I feel like it will only suit certain skin tones and will probably be less wearable. However if you pair it with a coloured lipgloss, it would look amazing!

Glass Slipper Lipglass, £16 

The last thing I managed to grab from the collection was the tinted lipglass in Glass Slipper (probably my favourite name!)

I have never owned a MAC lipgloss before so I was super excited to try this and I can honestly say I'm in love! A lot of people often say the lipglosses are sticky which is what's put me off for so long, but I really like the consistency and don't find it to be sticky at all!

Glass Slipper is the most interesting lipgloss I've come across, it's almost holographic and turns different colours when the light reflects on it. I paired it with Royal Ball and I can hands down say that the two will be my favourite lip combo throughout spring/summer!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope this gave you all some insight into the collection and helped you choose some bits that you might want to pick up tomorrow in store! Make sure you get their early, I have a feeling it will sell out quick, and be sure to comment down below & follow to enter my giveaway (if you've come from YouTube!)

Love Han xo

  73. Hey Han can I just say this collection is amazing I love everything. Unfortunately at the moment I don't have the money to buy any makeup really so I would love to win the give away. Anyhow sad stories aside 😕 my favourite item would have to be the stroke of midnight eyeshadow palette especially because of the look you created. Your videos on YouTube are such an inspiration to me and they're always put together so well. Another reason why I love to win the giveaway is recently I bought quite expensive makeup and I was so excited but that excitement was short lived because I figured out the hard way that I was allergic to something in it I don't really know. But mac has always been my favourite... I'm rambling on now so I better go, keep being your fabulous self ☺😆✌👊
