THREE OF MAC'S NEW COLORS

Swatch Week in full effect!!!

I have three of Mac's new colors I would like to share with you all. I'm not really impressed with them and found them difficult to work with! My swatches normally look better than this, so I apologize in advance. But I had been doing tons of swatches and they all were bitches to apply.

MALIBU PEACH
This isn't quite as orange or bright as it looks in the picture, but at least this is more color accurate than MAC's website!! Not my kind of color at all, I have realized that the orange peaches are ones I don't like, I like the pinker tinted peaches. NOTE TO SELF - Stop buying orange tinted peaches!!! This was super streaky, and after three coats you can still see some bald (or BOB spots as my son says it) spots.





GALORE PINK
This color I really liked. I am being drawn to these types of pinks lately and I like it! This color too was a PITA to apply. Streaky, but not near as bad as Malibu Bitch....er I mean Peach! I need to compare this with my Hello Kitty pink I have from Mac, they seem as though they could be similar.





IMPERIAL SPLENDOR
Such a dramatic name, MAC, lol. This color applied the best, with the least amount of streaks, but as you can see there are still some bald spots. These weren't as noticeable until the flash went off, so that at least is a plus. Also this color isn't as dark as it seems in the pictures either.

Feel as if I OUGHT to like Imperial but it is a bit streaky. Not being dark is a good thing but patchy is a bad thing and at those prices I'll move on.

That first one is so gorgeous! Love it!

Those are beautiful - too bad the application is not that great.

I really like imperial splendor, but not enough to pay for it. Guh, I hate polishes with big price tags and shitty qual.

I like Malibu Peach, but I don't like MAC application :(

oooo...those are gorgeous...

shame about the patchy issues..

I just HATE it when application is so hard that those bald spots is all over the place. I've heard before that MAC has some application problems, I have yet to try MAC polish. But I will. With some hesitation, might I add. The colors look great, though.

They're pretty good, but their price for shit application, no thank you.

Super pretty colors! But the price? $$$tickershock! LOL

Ange-Marie said...

another pass on MAC colors for me... I've yet to find one with good application

Nicole said...

Ahahaha, Malibu Bitch. I have yet to invest in a MAC polish because 99% of the time I've heard the same story, and I don't feel like fighting with a formula for the price! Plus, I honestly could skip these colors anyway. Thanks Brooke!

I like your name for Malibu, that was a good one! I'm trying to ignore MAC polishes. They are crappy polishes. I like the last shade but I'm sure I have something like it. It's not so amazingly different that I need to buy it.

Crystal Polish said...

I do not like mac Polishes at all. They are not good enough to charge the prices they do. I hate when polish is streaky! So frustrating.

I passed on all of these. I like Imperial Splendor, but I didn't feel like these were unique colors. I bought some other things from this collection though!!

Ayuu said...

I like Imperial and Galore, but I wouldn't buy them, they are too expensive :s
