MAC Cinderella Collection ♡ ft. Mystery Princess, Royal Ball, Glass Slipper, Happily Ever After

First of all, I want to apologize for my lack of beauty posts and social media updates lately; work has been so busy and whenever I sit down and try to focus on blogging, my mind and my action does not cooperate with each other. It is kind of frustrating as I aim to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; but it is not working out for me these past few weeks, so please bear with me.

MAC Cinderella Collection

I assume everyone has heard of the MAC Cinderella Collection? I bet some of you are sick of seeing this everywhere as every other blogger is talking about this collection and some of you may be still searching to get your hands on the ones that were sold out too quick?! Luckily I was awoken by a really weird dream on the night the collection launched online and I was able to get a few things that I wanted.

At first it was only two lipsticks and two lipglasses that were on my wish list, as I felt like all the colors in this collection are quite pale and they wouldn't work well with my light / medium skin tone; but of course I had to get the beauty powder, all because of it's beautiful packaging! Everything was sold out pretty quick, by the time I got up for work, I checked and everything was sold out. I wish I got the eye gloss, I have never come across anything so interesting and I have just been pretty curious on how it works etc...

MAC Cinderella Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess [US$28.00] is described as a pinky beige with silver shimmer with a Matte finish, pretty sure MAC has made a mistake as Mystery Princess looks nothing like matte; it is shimmery with a frosted sheen.

I came across someone complaining about  non of the makeup brushes they have tried picked up any products from this beauty powder, then I saw someone else replied with a technique they have learnt from a MAC makeup artist, and the technique is to use a clean mascara wand, scrap out some products from the compact then dip your makeup brushes in and apply as normal.

It sounds like a good idea as I was experiencing the same things of not picking up anything with a makeup brush from this beauty powder, but it would definitely hurt a bit if I have to scrap out some of its products with a mascara wand; fear of ruining the beauty powder, afterall I bought Mystery Princess mainly for its packaging and cute product name.

MAC Cinderella Lipstick in Royal Ball [US17.50] is described as a fleshy pink with a Lustre finish. I am not a huge Lustre fan, especially not those in a light color range; but I did end up getting one of the lipsticks as I enjoy collecting MAC limited edition packaging items.

Royal Ball is absolutely gorgeous in person, it has a sheer coverage and application went on smoothly, but its formula is not that great, the lipstick clings to dry patches and emphasize lines, it is drying and it has a very-metallic-look when I wear it.

MAC Cinderella Lipglass is my favourite products out of the whole collection, I have been loving MAC lipglasses during this past summer and I adore the sparklies in this both tubes.

MAC Cinderella Glass Slipper Lipglass [US$16.50] is described as a light milky pink with pinkish pearl, it is a translucent gloss with pink shimmer; and MAC Cinderella Happily Ever After Lipglass [US$16.50] is described as a cool milky pink with blueish pearls, this one is a lot more sparkly than Glass Slipper and it has loads of blue shimmer. Both are gorgeous when worn on its own, they also look great over any lipsticks or lip pencil shades.

I did have swatches for all products shown above, but my camera didn't pick up any of its colors; I did a few arm swatches, but they all came out as if my arms were bare and clean.

Overall, let's be honest, if it wasn't a Limited Edition Disney collection; I would have probably skipped this. Each products shades are all too light, even for my type of skin tone that would usually look great in any nude shades; I wondered how all the dark skin girls feels about this collection, they must have been pretty disappointed with it.

Did you manage to pick up anything from the MAC Cinderella Collection? & What are your thoughts on this collection? The packaging? The formula? The color choices?

  2. Your overall thoughts are what I came too after seeing many hauls and swatches. The shades are all very subtle and light and the only thing I'm interested in having would be the lipgloss in happily ever after. I have never picked up anything from mac's collections but then again I literally never buy from mac but I totally would have loved to get something from the disney's villians collection in the past. I'm sorry to hear that overall you're disappointing by the products but I can totally get how they aren't that great although the packaging is quite lovely!
