Technically...

I did still pass on Mac's latest Liberty of London collection as this is not shopping, no money was exchanged. I got these goodies in a swap. Yay! :)

I had to get my hands on 'Peachstock', even though I dismissed it after really wanting it.

I also got 'Shy Girl' from the permanent collection.


'Shy Girl' is a creme sheen, and 'Peachstock' is a satin. I was worried that 'Peachstock' would be too similar to Body Shops #46 lipstick, it wasn't but 'surprisingly Shy Girl' is exactly the same. I'm running low on #46, so 'Shy girl' came at a great time.

'Shy Girl' is a peachy / orange nude that is very warm toned and wearable. It looks very natural and is perfect for daytime. 'Peachstock' is a brown based peachy nude, this colour looks perfect on my olive skin but I don't see this colour working on fair skin.

I wanted the 'Moss Scape' paint pot by Mac, but settled for 'Green Sage' fluidline which is discontinued. I wanted this to use as a base underneath my lovely green toned eye shadows.


It's basically almost the same colour as 'Sumptuous Olive' eyeshadow.


Here's a swatch of the 'Green Sage' fluidline, and then another with 'Sumptuous Olive' over the top. Love it!


What's your take on 'Peachstock', 'Shy Girl' and 'Green Sage'?

I have Peachstock but I can't make it work for me :( I'm about NC20 right now so in summer when I'm NC25/30 I'm hoping it will look better on me x

wow, the paint pot looks great under the olive! i have sumptuous olive as well..now i'm wondering if there's any chance of finding this pot at the cco!

Muhsine omg I can't believe we both got Shy Girl :) I have been loving Peachstock too, I am sure it looks beautiful on you! Yay for Peachstock & Shy Girl! Bummer I should have got Sumptuous Olive in stead of one of those colors I recently purchased, I forgot about it! That paint pot looks so pretty. Ok so now you'll have to do a look using these gorgeous colors! ;)

I was considering Peachstock too, it's an awesome color, will be gorgeous on you.

My new obsession is the MAC paint pot, I may have to get the olive green one now too. I've been using Constructivist every day! Glad the fluidline is working well--can't wait to see a FOTD!

the packaging is very appealing. I kind of want to buy it just to put it on my dresser so it can look pretty.

I actually got the other peachy lipstick from the collection, 'Ever Hip'...or something like that! It's really pretty, but 'Peachstock' is gorgeous too! I adore 'Green Sage' too, wish I'd picked that one up...thanks for the fabulous swatches!
