MAC Fruity Juicy Lipstick Review

I am so in love with the packaging of the new Summer MAC Fruity Juicy line that I decided to start with one of the lipsticks in the collection.

The packaging is so pretty with flowers and fruit on a shiny black case.

What’s to love?

The MAC Fruity Juicy Lipstick collection comes in 4 shades:

  • Calm Heat Nude (Matte)
  • Shy Girl Coral Beige (Amplified)
  • Love At First Bite Light Pink (Amplified)
  • Si, Si, Me! Dark Pink (Satin)

I chose the Si, Si, Me! shade which is a dark pink and it has beige, fuchsia and violet colors in the mix.

The lipstick itself is so smooth and satiny. It glides on very easily and stays in place without bleeding or feathering. I was worried the shade might be too dark for my but I am actually loving it.

I also love the very light vanilla scent that MAC lipstick has. It’s not overpower but so pretty. I am really loving the Fruity Juicy Collection and might just have to pick up a second shade or the Pearlmatte Face Powder! Decisions : )

I’m wearing the MAC Fruity Juicy Si, Si, Me! shade in my May Beauty Favorites video too.

MAC Strobe Cream Review

Believe it or not this is my first experience using a MAC product and I’m thrilled with the results. I received a MAC Strobe Cream sample in my May 2017 Birchbox and I am loving it!

What’s to love?

The Mac Strobe Cream comes in 4 shades: Pinklite, Peachlite, Redlite and Silverlite. I have the Silverlite. According to MAC the Strobe Cream is a “moisturizer that boosts the look of dull skin and luminizes with iridescent particles.”

I was very impressed with the results of the Strobe Cream. It gave my face a nice smooth bright look that was not shiny or greasy.  I felt like I was glowing which is nice when you’re over 40 like me. I also really liked the scent. It’s fresh and light.

I think I might just have to pick up a full-sized tube when my sample runs out and I want to try more MAC products!

Full-Sized Price: $33
