MAC Fashion SetsThursday, May 10, 2012
So the limited edition Fashion Sets 2013 which I've been waiting for (because of the violet hue, Heroine) since April is now available in the Philippines (5-6 pcs remaining in the MAC counters haha). I bought that of course because I thought that it's a very unique hue. That's one of my first considerations whenever I buy lipstick because I can always mix & match, then next would be the consistency and texture. Let's review!
MAC Fashion Sets 2013 Matte Lipsticks (Limited edition)
Availability: MAC Cosmetics Trinoma, MOA, Eastwood, etc
(+) As always, impressive consistency, coverage and texture. It's matte and true to its name.
(+) Colors are bold - Ablaze is a bright coral, the middle of Morange and Lady Danger; Silly is like MAC Nicki Minaj 1 less the coral tone; Heroine is pure violet with a cool undertone (which doesn't match me); Embrace Me is a subtle version of Candy Yum Yum
(+) Nonetheless, in terms of uniqueness of color, I was not that impressed because these can look very similar to the ones I mentioned especially Embrace Me and Silly.

At any rate, you might want to check out the liners, nail colors and shadows that match your lipsticks. That's the statement of Fashion Sets. I like it better on nails, lip liners and shadows because the colors now are more unique since there's less variety when it comes to these product types.
