MAC Baroque Boudoir Collection - now in Australia

07 December 2009

Finally!! I've been waiting for this collection for quite some time now and now it's out. It's a David Jones (DJ) exclusive only in Perth but I am pretty sure it's available in all MAC counters over east.

It's not on Australian MAC site yet which was hopeless because I was counting on it. Luckily my feet dragged me at DJ after work and saw it there :)

Initially, I was planning to get Prive lipstick (light blue pink) which I saw at Temptalia's site but when I saw it in person it reminded me of DSquared's Nude Rose lipstick so I decided not to get it.

Anyway here's what I got: MAC Treasured lipstick (Creamy warm nude beige) and MAC The Lap of Luxury (sheer baby pink with white and pink pearl) lipgloss

The packaging is so gorgeous and the boxes too! I am pretty sure I'm keeping everything. The only thing I don't like is the applicator of the lipgloss - brush. I am more a sponge tip girl than brush.

MAC introduced 2 new lip finishes in this collection - Cream lipstick and Frost Lipgloss.

According to the MUA at my counter, Cream finish is like a love child of Amplified and Lustre finishes. You get the intensity of the colour + glossiness of a Lustre = Cream.

While Frost Lipgloss (not Lipglass) is like a love child of Lipglass and Lustreglass sans the sticky feeling. (plus!!)

Reason for my choice - well all day today I was contemplating on a nude lip. I even sent a tweet asking what's the best nude lip colour for NC40 like me and Fafinettex3 recommended MAC Cherish which I was going to get but since Boudoir is out then might as well try it and I couldn't be happier. I am still getting MAC Cherish eventually (i know myself).

Before I leave you for the day, let me share my discovery of the day.

MAC The Tap of Luxury (Frost) is very similar to MAC Love Nectar (Lustreglass). Very very similar. The only difference is Love Nectar is very sticky and The Tap of Luxury is not :)

And some swatch for you - i feel very JLo-ish with this lip combo! This matches my new nude patent shoes :P

A happy lady indeed.
