MAC Good Luck Trolls Collection Review - Lena Talks Beauty

MAC Good Luck Trolls limited edition collection preview

Good Luck Trolls is MAC Cosmetics’ newest limited edition collection and it has filled me with glee. The packaging is bright, as are the colours contained inside. This post isn’t a full review as I only received my press samples a few days before the collection came out, but I wanted to give you all a look at what the collection is like – so you know to head to your local counters! I’ve also included pricing and store availability for MAC in New Zealand, since this information can be hard for us to find. “Hair we go! The wild-haired dolls of your youth bring their rainbow tufts, bejewelled bellies and lucky charms to M·A·C Good Luck Trolls – a crazy-hued collection as silly as the creatures themselves. From Lipglass in Bubble Butt to Eye Shadow in Suns Out, Buns Out and Beauty Powder in Glo Rida…being a troll has never been so glamorous!”

MAC Flamingo Park Collection

MAC Flamingo Park collection

Flamingo Park is the newest limited edition collection from MAC Cosmetics, and it is delightfully bright. As you may have seen on my social media, I was sent a lipstick, beauty powder, and lip gloss from this beautiful collection and today I’ll be reviewing them for you. “Plunge into the punchy pleasures of pink in a freshly made batch of scrumptious colours that let you have your cake, and wear it too. Glisten pretty on a sunny day with Powder Blush, a fun way to bring delicious colour to your cheeks. Paint it pink and get your just desserts anytime, but be ready to share!”

3 Ways with MAC Heroine

I’m Elese from elesedowden.com & today Lena’s kindly let me guest post about one of my favourite topics. Of all the not-red-nude-or-pink coloured lipsticks in the world, purple is probably the least intimidating to tackle. It’s not as scary as mint, blue or yellow (Colorpop Charm anyone?), and yet, it still says something between “Mac DeMarco at the King’s Arms – keen?” and “It’s possible that I’m edgier than a NSFW metareddit.”

September Empties

This month I have an absolutely bumper empties post, since I tidied my makeup table and did a bit of a clean up of my collection. Many of these aren’t actually empty, but they’re going in the bin all the same so they deserve to be in this post. There are a whopping 25 items, so I won’t be going through all of them individually – I’ll focus on the full size products that I’ve actually finished – so let’s get into it!

MAC Vamplify Collection - Lena Talks Beauty

MAC Vamplify

The latest collection from MAC Cosmetics is Vamplify – a collection of strongly pigmented, long wearing lip glosses, and lip pencils. “Be seduced by our most dramatic lip gloss yet. Loaded with high-powered pigments that hug lips in shades that glisten with a delicious shine, one swipe loads lips with attitude as a combination of lush natural oils polish with impeccable, moisturizing colour. Never a tease, the glossy colour wears comfortably for hours, for a look that comes on strong and doesn’t let go.” I was excited to receive two of these Vamplify glosses from MAC Cosmetics, and I have swatches, pictures of them on my face and full review, so read on!

MAC Haute Dogs Collection

MAC Haute Dogs Collection

The newest collection from MAC Cosmetics is inspired by dogs – that’s a sentence that I never thought I would write! Here is what they said about the new limited edition Haute Dogs collection: “(Wo)man’s best friend is barking up the right tree in a well-groomed collection of new canine-inspired hues from M·A·C, featuring luscious, buttery fur tones, gold-spun sculpting powders, and regal berries for lips.” I am actually scared of dogs, and was seriously phobic of them as a child, but you know what? I can get on board with this collection because I love MAC, and I love these colours! MAC have sent me two products for review – the Lap Dog Mineralise Lipglass, and Pure Bred Mineralise Eyeshadow quad.
