Finally a collection that's worth the hype?
This collection has to be my favourite LE packaging from Mac! I placed my order at 11am last week and it was so crazy as everything sold out so quickly, twitter and IG was tapping away and I couldn't resist.
Drooling over rose gold!
I got 4 things!
2 of the lip products, 'Talk that talk' and 'Riri Woo' both retro matte finishes with uber pigmentation for statement lips.
'Talk that talk' is similar to 'Dark Deed' from the VV collection but a different finish, 'Riri Woo' is extremely similar to 'Ruby Woo' which I don't have, it's a very close dupe for Illamasqua 'Sangers' lipstick in colour and finish.
I'm really into dark matte lips but I like it mostly on other people rather than me, I think it's a great colour for Autumn/Winter and hopefully I can pull it off! Watch this space :)

The blush. OMG the blush is amazing! The texture, finish and pigmentation is divine, the colour is a beautiful warm copper with a satin finish that matches my NC35 skin tone perfectly, it's lovely and deep and I don't need bronzer with it. It may be a tad too dark for slightly paler skin tones but it could still work with a lighter hand. It will also look amazing on deeper skin tones to reveal a more golden uplifted cheek. I can not fault this blush and I want to wear it everyday, definitely going to be a statement for Autumn. I have read that some people say that it looks too orange, yes it's warm toned and coppery but once applied and blended gives a lovely tanned glow.
Swatched - applied heavily on the left and blended out on the right, you can see how natural it looks. I would say it's in the same colour family as 'Warm Soul' & 'Sun & Moon' mineralised blushes, so if you like those, you will love this!
Diamonds - Cream Colour Base
This again is a beautiful product, great for highlighting and adding a glow.
It has a frost finish which is quite apparent when swatched but once applied on the skin and blended looks beautiful and lit from within. It's has a lovely golden shimmer and can be applied lightly or heavily depending on the desired effect. I wore both cheek products yesterday and they looked AMAZING together and had great lasting powder. I didn't take a picture sadly but will do a FOTD with it soon.
Did you manage to pick up anything from this collection? And what are your thoughts? Worth the hype or not? I certainly think so.
