MAC baking beauties collection - raspberry swirl cremesheen lipstick


I didn't mean to buy anything else from the MAC baking beauties collection after I got the buttercream pearlmatte face powder I blogged about here.  But, after having an idle little swatch of the lipsticks in an airport I decided I needed to buy raspberry swirl.  

Raspberry swirl is a cool but bright pink - to me it's like a Barbie bubblegum pink.  Not so flattering in terms of showing up stained teeth, but a gorgeous shade all the same.  I'm whitening my teeth at the moment anyway, so I figured this would look even better after I've done that.  

It's a cremesheen, which is my favourite MAC formula because it's quite creamy and applies really evenly and gives full coverage.  

Were you tempted by the Baking Beauties collection?

  15. They did a really great job on their marketing campaign for that, it looks so tasty I actually wanted to eat it XD And then apply some pretty makeup. I'm not too fond of this color, but I like how it goes on! It doesn't look like it would dry your lips!
