Ellie Goulding has an effortless way about her. From her voice to the makeup collaboration about to launch with MAC Cosmetics, everything just screams approachable in a sexy way. The promo picture for MAC Ellie Goulding shows her in a skintight outfit with big poofy hair, but the makeup… The makeup had me at hello.
There were several pieces set to launch with the MAC Ellie Goulding collection and I have quite a few of them to show you. We shall start with the Powder Blush Duo in I’ll Hold My Breathe that retails for $28. It has a gorgeous bronzer that takes up 2/3 of the pan but the blush is LIFE. I wish that it was split up more evenly, but the blush section is big enough to dip your MAC 129 brush (or any blush brush) into and use.
Moving onto the MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Innocent. This one is the perfect sheer nude glossy lip. It is basically a sheer/nude/gold gloss with no shimmer, no sticky, and all the shine. YASSSSS please. It retails for $21.
The thing I am most excited about in the MAC Ellie Goulding collection is probably the Cremesheen Lipsticks. The packaging is the same glossy black as the face powder, and even though I love shiny everything, the way it collects fingerprints is annoying to say the lease. But the LIPSTICKS THEMSELVES? Glorious.
Only You and Without Your Love are the names and the darker of the two (Only You) is by far my favorite even though both are beautiful. The formula is so creamy and pigmented. These cannot be passed over. They are perfect.
Only You on the lips.
The final thing I have to show you are the lashes. I am a fan of false lashes even though I don’t often wear them. I find that little segments of lashes, and even half lash strips, are the easiest and most comfortable to wear. These ones are a touch on the dramatic side so I think that actually layering them over another set of falsies would be amazing.
As you can see they are a great deal longer than my bare lashes so even though they were easy to apply and comfy they still stick out quite a bit.
Overall I am extremely happy with the MAC Ellie Goulding collection.
