After seeing Ellie Goulding at Hyde Park’s British Summer Time festival last year, I’ve become a massive fan. Her vocals live were absolutely amazing and I adore her sense of style, so when I heard she was launching a collection with MAC with including various lip products, palettes and a blush, I knew I’d have to pick up at least one item from it. However, with it being December and buying gifts for Christmas I didn’t quite know if I’d be in time before it sold out. Thankfully, my brother had bought me some MAC vouchers for Christmas so I used those to treat myself to one of the two Cremesheen lipsticks, namely Without Your Love a warm seashell coloured pink.
While MAC’s Cremesheen lipsticks tend not to last as long as their Amplified, Matte and Satin finish counter parts, the formula as usual is smooth and feels gorgeous on. I teamed this with their Soar lipliner and can see this becoming a combination I use a lot as Spring approaches. As Without Your Love is part of a limited edition collection, it is a little more expensive than usual, retailing at £17.00. Would I pick up the other lipstick from the range (Only You)? As much as I love Ellie, probably not as I prefer something with a little more staying power. Although I would be interested to try the blush in I’ll Hold My Breath if it’s still in stock by next payday.
Have you tried any of the MAC x Ellie Goulding collection? What did you think?
