MAC Cinderella

Hello lovelies, sorry it's been a while since I have blogged but I have had Dissertation draft deadlines and a placement report deadline so I have basically been sat at my desk for three weeks. Anyhow amongst the mayhem that has been my life the last couple of weeks, I managed to get my hands on a lipstick from the MAC Cinderella collection. I missed out on its launch on the MAC website and was slightly upset, so I made sure I was outside the MAC store early for its opening at 10am on Friday 13th. I was the second person in the shop and already knew what I wanted, Royal Ball lipstick. I was so excited once I bought it and it is one of my favourite lipsticks already.

I know a lot of people were unhappy with parts of the MAC Cinderella collection and were saying that you are just paying for the pretty packaging, however, I still had to find out for myself if it was any good. I only bought one lipstick as I didn't really have lots of money at the time, as it is coming towards the end of this terms student loan. If I could have afforded more, I would have gotten the Cinderella Iridescent Powder and the Free as a Butterfly lipstick as well. The packaging is absolutely beautiful and so cute, it stands out amongst my MAC cosmetics collection and well worth £17. I know others commented that the packaging is tacky, but I think it is far from that. It looks elegant and very Cinderella-like.

This is a subtle  and stunning shade, it is a very natural colour but still looks amazing! It is a fleshy-pink colour that brings out the natural tones of your lips with a frosted finish. I am so glad I managed to get my hands on Royal Ball and think it definitely lives up to the hype. The pigmentation is fantastic and it is a perfect warm colour for Spring, I know Spring means brighter tones but it is also good to have a few nude shades in your makeup bag too.

The quality of the lipstick is good, obviously it is not a bright or dark colour so it won't last as long as those shades would but the duration is still great. It just glides straight onto my lips, it isn't sticky or too thick. I have also noticed that the lipstick has a nice vanilla smell to it and makes me love it even more.

Royal Ball is so pretty and I love how it looks on, it adds a brighter pinky natural colour to my lips with a beautiful shimmer to finish it off. I have worn it so much already and hope it doesn't run out for a very long time! It is perfect to enhance my lip colour and it really does go with everything, I think it even makes my eyes look more blue.

This lipstick is fit to suit a princess and has brightened up my makeup bag. I am 100% happy with this purchase and is one of my best buys of the year! It is a slight shame though that they didn't restock it online or in shops, once it was gone it was gone. It was highly anticipated range and they didn't prepare well for it, they should have had more stock and it seems like quite a few people missed out on it unfortunately. Also, I find it ridiculous that people then went on to sell the items on Ebay for up to three times the price.

I know MAC cosmetics do quite a few different collaborations and I really hope they do another one for the new Beauty and the Beast film, imagine the cute yellow packaging!! They also need to do a real life film of the Little Mermaid, that would be awesome!!
