MAC Baking Beauties Collection Haul

Just thought spring has arrived but nope, mother nature has other plans. We just got snow mixed with ice pellets overnite and still coming down.

Oh well, I got my MAC order which is from their latest launch: Baking Beauties Collection, which has a hint of spring/summer.

When I previewed this collection a while back, I knew I just had to get my hands on a few items.

Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm in Cherry Cherry
Pearlmatte Face Powder(In for a Treat)
Lipstick in Raspberry Swirl

I didn't get a whole lot as most shades are very pastel and frosty. But I'm so excited to try these out.

This is their collection. Even though I'm not a baker, I love desserts :)

I missed out on the Archie Girls' Collection pearlmatte face powder. So I was so excited when I saw they have something similar from this collection.

There are 2 shades offered and I picked this one as I think the color payoff will be better on my NC30 skintone. A frosty white on the outside rim, peach and coral pink with mint in the middle. 

When it is all blended, it gives the most beautiful pearlmatte finish as the product name suggests. Very pretty.

I have not tried MAC mineralize tinted lip balm. I am not a big fan of their lip glass as it is super-sticky. I picked the shade Cherry Cherry which is a very nice baby pink. Very sheer and not much pigmentation, which is what I like contrary to what most people prefer. I just like the glossy hint of color gloss on my lips over lipstick.

Raspberry Swirl

Very pretty pink with a hint of lavender. I didn't pick the ever-so-popular Lavender Whip which has more of a purple/lavender feel. Think pink would look much better on my lips.

Think the tinted lip balm will go well with this lipstick. What do you think?
