Mac Guilty Passions: 4 Lavish Rose Lipgloss set review


Hi Dolls,

I’ve got such an exciting post for you all today and loads of pretty pictures to go with it so I’m just gunna jump right into it. But first I owe you all a massive apology, sorry for the huge lack of posts recently. I've just been so busy, it was my 19th birthday last week so I’ve been celebrating that and there's been christmas shopping and work and before that I just lacked any inspiration on what to post about in the first place. But I have loads of bits and bobs to show you over the next few weeks, some which will make perfect Christmas presents for any of you late buyers so there’s lots to look forward too and I hope you can all forgive me. Anyway, today I am going to be introducing you too the new love in my life (okay, slight exaggeration) but I do really love this gift set by Mac. The set I have too show you is the Mac Guilty Passions: 4 Lavish Rose Lipgloss set. I was so interested in this product right from when the Mac Holiday collection was released on the Mac website in late october? I think the Glamour Daze and Guilty Passions collection are sooo lovely, all of the set's and product's have the most gorgeous packaging so will make perfect gifts but a lot of them are quite expensive (typical mac!) and as much as I would love to own them all I do have some sense so this is the one I picked out for my birthday last Monday.


Anyway my boyfriend bought this gorgeous present for me for my birthday after a lot of hinting on my part. I was so lucky and had such an amazing day and my mum actually got me a kindle wild fire which I’ve been loving and using to catch up on all my fav blogs. I also got loads of makeup and clothes to show you all. My boyfriend actually brought me lots of different makeup from Mac for my birthday and one of the things he got me was this lovely lipgloss set the set he got me was the Lavish Rose Lipgloss set and i’m absolutely loving every single one of these lipglosses so I thought I’d share them with you all. This is such a lovely present and is perfect for anybody who loves lipglosses or loves mac or a beginner who just wants to try some Mac makeup. 
 The lipgloss set contains four mini ‘Guilty Passions’ lipglosses homed in one of the most gorgeous boxes ever. Considering each individual one of Mac's lipglasses cost £17.00 for 2.7g of product and three of the lipglasses in this set are 1.9g and the other one is actually 2.6g of product for £25.50 you are actually getting a really good deal.
 One thing that makes this is an actual really nice gift is the giftbox it comes in. It’s pink so perfect for any girly girls and it’s made out of really strong cardboard that means you can easily reuse it to hold something else. Also it has the lovely detailing of a black plastic bow embellished on the top which makes it all the more fancy. There were actually three different lipgloss sets available in this collection but I think the other two have sold out so the one I’m showing you today is actually the only one you can still get. The reason I chose this lipgloss set over the others was because this one has the most diverse colours. I love pinks and this set comes with a nudey peach colour, a baby pink colour, a bright purple glitter colour and a really nice berry colour. I thought this would be perfect for me to experiment with different colours because these were actually my first ever mac lipglosses (I know, Shocker!) so I wanted some I could wear for everyday and some I could use for nights out as well.


  

  


Within this set you actually get two crèmesheen glasses, a dazzleglass crème and a normal dazzleglass and I think that every single one of the shades that you get within the set is just absolutely beautiful and they are all so creamy and soft and lovely to wear. Also they smell gorgeous, they smell just like vanilla and I love applying them. I find that they wear for a fairly long time as well and just really  make your lips look gorgeous. I would actually now purchase some full size lipgloss sets from Mac after trying these because they are seriously the best lipgloss formulation I’ve ever tried and this is just such a cute set and a perfect gift and they smell beautiful and look lovely so I’m really enjoying them so far.






 The four colours that you get within this set are Demure (Dazzleglass, Crème) I would say that this shade is a milky pinky – peach colour with a lovely blue sparkle running through it. It looks fairly sheer on the lips just because it’s such a light colour but it’s definitely buildable and would look lovely over a pink or peachy type lipstick.







 The second lipgloss that was in this kit is Going Casual (Cremesheen Glass) this is actually my favourite of the lipglasses within this set due to the fact it is just so wearable and looks lovely no matter what makeup look you’re going for. Going Casual is a baby pink (also described as ‘cotton candy’) and is has quite a blue/purple undertone running through it. I would say it’s without any shimmer but does have a lovely sheen to it. You can build it up to be very strong on your lips as well and it lasts pretty well on the lips too.






 The third lipstick within the set is Boys go Crazy (Dazzleglass) this is the most fun lipgloss within the set and it’s so different and unique to any lipgloss I’ve ever seen before. It is loaded with purple, blue and silver shimmer and is just gorgeous. I think it would probably look better over a lipstick rather than on it’s on because you’d have to build it up quite a lot to get an even covering but I do really love this lipglass and think it would be perfect for festive parties.





 Lastly the final lipstick is Colour Saturation (Cremesheen Glass) this is a really strong berry colour, it’s a mix between a dark pink, a red and a purple and it looks really lovely on the lips because it’s pretty opaque and really makes your lips stand out. I think this is the perfect colour for autumn to winter time and adds a lovely pop of colour to your face.






You can buy these lipglosses here for £25.50 which I think is an excellent deal!

Thank you all for reading.
Have you bought anything from the Mac Holiday Collection?
Lots of Love
