MAC Patrick Starrr Floral Realness Me So Chic

MAC Patrick Starrr Floral Realness Me So Chic Full Face Kit
MAC Patrick Starrr is back with the Floral Realness Collection and it's GORGEOUS. This packaging is so fun, and floral - screams Patrick. I was hoping for some more bright shades in his initial collection, reviewed here but now I get the plan. Great neutrals for the initial launch and bam, bring on the colour for round 2. See the collection in action in my most recent tutorial on my YouTube Channel
MAC Patrick Starrr Me So Chic
The MAC Patrick Starrr Floral Realness Full Face Kits retail for $49.50 USD/ $59.50 CAD on MAC Cosmetics. I personally think that's a great deal, it's a $129 CAD value!  All the products are full size, limited edition packaging - it's a steal for anyone who loves MAC, Patrick Starrr or a combination of the two. 
MAC Patrick Starrr 2018 Collection
Today I'm reviewing the MAC Patrick Starrr Me So Chic Floral Realness Full Face Kit which contains an eyeshadow quad of purple shades, beautiful nude lipstick, iridescent gloss and a peachy blush duo. If you're looking for more colour there is also the  MAC Patrick Starrr Me So Fleek Floral Realness Full Face Kit which contains an eyeshadow quad with a poppy blue and pink, bright pink lipstick/lip glass, and neutral pink blush.

MAC Patrick Starrr Stay With Me Swatches
MAC Patrick Starrr Stay With Me Eyeshadow Quad is a purple lovers dream. I stepped outside of my comfort zone as it's a little more cool toned than what I'm used to. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to complete a look with the 4 shades included. The quality across the board is great, Yesss is my fave shade. 
MAC Patrick Starrr Blush Duo I'm Not Blushing 
MAC Patrick Starrr I'm Not Blushing Blush Duo is so so pretty, it's a beautiful peach shade that compliments the purple eyeshadow really well. It has a little more of a powdery formula than what I'm used to from MAC blushes but it's a great shade, not too pigmented and doesn't look powdery on the skin.

MAC Patrick Starrr Sweet Mamastarrr Lipstick
MAC Patrick Starrr Sweet Mamastarrr Lipstick again is a perfect peachy shade, very Patrick. I wore this with a lip liner in my tutorial, a little more flattering on my NC42 skintone but it's a perfect "peachy nude" shade. As always with MAC lipsticks, the quality is great, it has a cream finish, super comfortable to wear.

MAC Patrick Starrr Mamastarrr Kiss Lipglass
MAC Patrick Starrr Mamastarr Kiss Lipglass has an iridescent finish, pairs really nicely with the MamaStarrr Lipstick or any lipstick really. It's not the kind of thing I'd wear on it's own but you totally could. The iridescence is not chunky or too bold, just adds a little extra dimension. It's slightly sticky if you are used to MAC Lipglass but I actually really like them as they last really long and have a super glossy finish.

The Balm Take Home the Bronze Bronzer Swatches

The Balm Take Home the Bronze Review
The Balm has been knocking out of the park with launches in 2018, so many new items! One of the latest is The Balm Take Home the Bronze Bronzers. If you're Canadian and have good sources to purchase The Balm, let us know down below. 
The Balm Take Home the Bronze Bronzers
The Balm Take Home the Bronze Bronzers come in 3 different shades, not a very large launch but I will say the first shade is quite light and the deepest is pretty deep! It's labeled as an "anti-orange" bronzer, I would agree. They are on the neutral side, not too cool or warm. The Balm has amazing powder formulas, it's super pigmented so tread lightly. They have a matte finish but they are buildable and blendable. They retail for $17.50 USD which is a pretty amazing price! 
The Balm Take Home the Bronze Swatches
"This formula seamlessly takes on many roles, from breath-taking bronzer to critically acclaimed contour powder. The main feature is the formula’s remarkable payoff, without any sur‘prize’ing orange undertones."
The Balm Bronzers 
It should be noted they've changed the names of the bronzers since I received them. Not sure if the award shows were displeased with the names or not but just keep that in mind :)
