Mac Proenza Schouler Collection

When I first heard Mac was teaming up with Proenza Schouler I was anxious for the collection to launch. If you're a sucker for cool packaging like me then you'll love this one. I love the metallic rainbow ombre packaging its pretty unique. I love how this collection was put together there's something for everyone. This collection contains 2 ombre bluses, 4 lipsticks, 2 lip liners, 4 nail polishes, 2 eye liners, and a special packaging 129SE powder/ blush brush.

MAC Proenza Schouler Collection
- Ocean City Blush ( Price $30.00 for 9 g )
- Mangrove Lipstick ( Price $22.00 for 3 g )

Mac Proenza Schouler collection was released last month and this is what I picked up from that collection. A few years ago Mac had released a collection with a few ombre blushes and I had only purchased 2 of those ombre blushes and missed out on the orange one. So when I saw Ocean City blush I had to get my hands on it and I'm so glad I did its not an exact dupe but its somewhat similar to the Ripe Peach ombre blush.

Mac Ocean City Blush

 Mac Ocean City blush is described as a vivid orange ombre into tan shade with a matte finish. I'm a huge coral/peachy shade fan which is one of the main reason I gravitated towards this blush. The pigmentation is not the best Ive seen from mac but it is buildable and if you do a light hand application it gives you a beautiful flush of color. This blush can be worn as a everyday blush the tan shade helps tone the intense coral shade. This blush lasted about 8to9 hours of wear on me. The only complain I have is the compact its kinda hard to open I struggled to open it and scratched it a little bit.

Mac Mangrove Lipstick

Mac Mangrove Lipstick is described as a bright clean orange red with a matte finish. Mangrove caught my eye its a gorgeous bright coral red lipstick with a warm undertone. I think its safe to say everyone had their eyes on mangrove since summer is right around the corner this shade was definitely a must have for me out of all 4 lipsticks. The color payoff is amazing its really pigmented you can sheer it out by blotting but I would rock Mangrove just the way it is bright and bold. It averages about 5-6 hours of wear on me it did leave a sheer stain behind. This lipstick did not dry out my lips I didn't find a exact dupe for this lipstick Mac So Chaud is more orange , and Mac Scarlet Ibis is more deeper than Mangrove.

Overall
All though this collection comes with an amazing packaging I had to hold back and purchase the items that I know I would put to use. The nail polishes were a no go for me I'm not a big fan of mac nail polishes. If you do want to pick up one lipstick from this collection I would say go for Mangrove and if you're not a big fan of bright lipstick check out Woodrose and Pinkfringe. I already mentioned how much I love Ocean city its really a gorgeous blush for me its a must have. Check out www.maccosmetics.com you still have the chance to pick up the lipsticks. Unfortunately the blushes are sold out you can try calling your local mac store or nordstrom for availability.
