I want to apologize in advance for any lemmings this post may cause! I really have not been able to resist the lippies that MAC has been throwing our way lately... The Baking Beauties collection was no exception, I picked up every lipstick with the exception of Devil's Food. Honestly, I just didn't see myself wearing it. But the other colors? Totally up my alley! The people at the MAC counter were so sweet that they threw in the yummy petit four as well.
I need another highlighter like I need a hole in the head but LOOK at how pretty it is! Here is the Pearlmatte Face Powder in In For a Treat. Pink Buttercream was super pretty as well but I found it a little too cool-toned for me.
In For a Treat has a light golden sheen to it, it looks so pretty dusted on top of the cheekbones! However you can also use it as a face powder to give yourself a gorgeous glow.
Here is Raspberry Swirl (Cremesheen) described as a "light white blue pink", which sounds impossible. What it really means is it's a light cool-toned pink that will make your teeth look awesome. Since it's a Cremesheen formula, it doesn't look chalky at all.
Here is Pure Decoration, which ALWAYS gets "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory stuck in my head. It's described as a "light white peach" , which is accurate. It has a milky quality to it that I love. If you missed out on this, "Altered Beige" from the Temperature Rising collection doesn't seem too different, just slightly warmer and in a Lustre finish.
And here is Lavender Whip, which was the hardest color to hunt down! Lavender Whip is described as a "light cool lavender", it has such a dainty look to it! While Lavender Whip and Viva Glam Nicki 2 are both cool toned lavenders, I find Lavender Whip easier to pull off, probably because it's a little more sheer. Nicki 2 can look a bit chalky if you aren't careful, and usually requires a lip liner (so that it doesn't look so stark).
There you have it, my picks from the Baking Beauties collection. It's kinda hard to pick a favorite, but I have to go with Raspberry Swirl. Which one is your fave?
