Swatches & First Impressions: Mac Kelly Osbourne Collection

Hey guys :)

So I’ve had the date saved for the release of the Mac Kelly Osbourne Collection for weeks now and I was lucky enough to take a peek at the collection before it was released in stores this past Thursday the 12th. I even got to put aside all the goodies I wanted and purchased them in store on the release date…yey for me!!!

So I picked up the lipsticks in Riot House and Dodgy Girl, The Blush in Cheeky Buger, and the Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad.

mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_lipstick_swatchesDodgy Girl is a light lavender with a matte finish although it isn’t completely matte as it shows a subtle hint of glow. It has a bit of a satin finish and feels rather comfortable for a matte shade. It has a soft creamy texture and applied smoothly without skipping or pulling on the lips. The pigmentation is great achieving opacity with just one or two swipes. No feathering, bleeding or cracking experienced either.

Riot House is a light yet vivid peachy orange with a mate finish. The pigmentation is great, as well as the opacity. It has a soft creamy texture and applied smoothly on the lips, though the formula was drying for me and didn’t apply that evenly. I did not experience any bleeding or feathering with this one either. I do love how unique this shade is and cant wait to try it mixed with more hydrating products.

mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_blush_cheekyBuger_2mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_blush_cheekyBuger_swatchCheeky Buger Blush is a light, pastel,  pinky-peach with a matte finish. The texture and formula is super soft and smooth, making it so effortless to blend into the skin for a subtle look, yet the pigmentation is great for a more powerful effect too.

Spoonful of Sugar is  a  light silver with subtle warmth and a frosted finish. The texture was smooth and creamy. It also had good pigmentation and color pay off.

mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_bloodyBrilliant_eyeshadowQuad_ticketyboo

Tickety Boo is a soft muted plum brown. Its a mid toned warm mauve shade with a beautiful satin finish. The texture was smooth and the pigmentation is great for a mid toned shade.

mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_bloodyBrilliant_eyeshadowQuad_fizzyRoseFizzy Rose is a cool toned light pink lilac with a slight pearly sheen. The texture is soft and smooth. The pigmentation is decent (not the strongest of the bunch). Worked over a corresponding base or white base will definitely make this pastel shade pop.

mac_kellyOsbourneCollection_bloodyBrilliant_eyeshadowQuad_shadowyLady

Shadowy Lady is a blackened plum with a matte finish. More specifically this shade is a deep yet muted and cool toned, burgundy brown. The pigmentation is great, yet the shadow is a bit drier in texture.

THE VERDICT:

4/5 for this super cool collection. The packaging is super cute, I cant resist me some lavender packaging hahaha!!! I love the uniqueness of the lipstick shades (although I would have preferred a more moisturizing finish for Riot House). The blush is gorgeous and perfect for that girly baby doll peachy-pink flush. I also love the eyeshadow quad for its diverse colors and finishes, with overall great pigmentation and texture.

Have any of you picked up any pieces from this collection? If so what did you get and what do you think? If not, are there any items your thinking about snagging?
