MAC Moody Blooms1I picked up a few items from MAC’s Moody Blooms collection released last week. There are some pretty accent colors in it that caught my eye in MAC’s Veluxe Pearl formula. In addition to this as my favorite MAC eyeshadow texture, the collection attracted me because the strong colors can be added to a neutral eye to shake things up a bit. My take on this collection is that it was released a few weeks early–these colors say “late summer” to me. Nonetheless, better too early than too late, n’est ce pas? Various items from this collection are still available on Nordstrom.com, Macy’s, and MAC online, as well as other MAC sources.

The eyeshadows are:

  • Artistic License, a shimmery peach Veluxe Pearl
  • Deep Fixation, a rich warm-red brown Veluxe Pearl that was released lsat year in MAC’s Nudes and Metallics collection
  • Blooming Mad a complex light purple Frost that will mix nicely with some deep taupes
  • Hidden Motive, a deep red-violet Veluxe Pearl
  • Green Room, a green-teal Satin

The one item that you may not want to miss is Black Ivy Fluid Line, a deep blue green liner with very slight sparkle that’s absolutely gorgeous with a neutral eye.

I picked up two lipsticks in MAC’s Sheen Supreme formula, a soft sheer formula that has a soft glow.

As you might expect, these do not last all day and some find them drying (although I do not).

MAC Moody Bloom is  complex, shimmery brown/plum nude. Because it is sheer, it will look different on everyone. Here is Moody Bloom on Liz– you should not that this does not show as pink on me, this is due to a strong pink undertone on Liz’s lips. On me, this is more bronze/mauve.  This is a pretty grab-and-go shade.

Here is MAC Lush Extract on Liz, a bold cool pink/purple that is very striking. Liz thought that this color was too strong for her coloring.

I also bought MAC Worldly Wealth, which I haven’t had the chance to explore. This is a frost formula, so one I can expect a shimmery finish to this warm-toned blush.
