2016 was a year of makeup hauls for me. There's so much makeup that I finally said to myself, I have to start posting it to my blog before they add up even more and lose the opportunity and time to do so. This 2017, I swear, is the year for more beauty and makeup reviews, so please bear with me! First off, is sharing my lipstick collection. I previously posted a couple of reviews and swatches of some from my collection and you may check it all in this link. Anyway, since the Beauty and the Beast live action reboot premiere is just right around the corner and there's still no confirmed collaboration with Canadian makeup brand MAC Cosmetics, here is a piece from MAC Cosmetics x Disney's Cinderella collection instead.

Two years ago, MAC Cosmetics launched a makeup collection in collaboration with Disney for Cinderella. This is of course launched simultaneously with the live action movie reboot which was shown in theaters last 2015.

The collection is huge for a limited edition release, but not huge enough to cater to all Cinderella fans ready to throw in their money just to have a piece. In fact, when it was launched here in Manila, everything sold out just minutes right after they opened. I was fortunate enough to have my hands on one lipstick which is Royal Ball.

 

By the way, I have these limited edition MAC Cosmetics lipsticks for quite some time now but I haven't even used it. At all. So what better way to christen them than to do swatches! Stay tuned on this blog, I will be posting them all here soon. :)

So I kinda sorta prepared for this review by baking my concealer some more, retouching my brows (as I did this review after I got home from work), contouring and adding a neutral eye shadow. Of course I did not want to come looking unprepared for this review!

I opted for a no-makeup makeup look because I want to. LOLJK, I just really like to keep it simple and natural looking.

Royal Ball is nice light peachy color with a Lustre finish. I'm not really into that finish but I bought it anyway because it's a limited edition AND from Disney's Cinderella collection. Also, I figured I can use it as a finishing coat for a lipstick with Matte finish.

Since Royal Ball has a Lustre finish, as expected, it is close to my skin complexion when swatched on my hand. It's as if it is a concealer with an added creaminess and shimmer.


The video above shows how my lips look like without any lip product.


And by the way, I suggest you use a lip primer first before applying lipstick. This is to moisturize your lips, prolong the lipstick on those puckers and of course, for a better pop of color.

However, when applied, it looked quite okay. Although I must say, it's clearly lacking a pop of color. But like what I said, I initially bought it as a finishing coat for my lipsticks with matte finish.


I think I could have pulled it off more if I opted for a heavy eye makeup, specifically a smokey eye makeup instead.

Ever since news broke about the live action reboot of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, I was seriously expecting for a special limited edition collection with MAC Cosmetics. Unfortunately, it was reported that L'Oreal will have a Beauty and the Beast collection BUT available only through Amazon Italy. Here's to hoping the MAC Cosmetics X Beauty and the Beast collection will still happen, yeah? :)
