MAC Give Me Liberty of London product swatch

Posted on: March 10, 2010

As most of you know, MAC’s Give Me Liberty of London collection will become available in stores and counters tomorrow! I went to the reveal event last week, and here are the swatches of the product I purchased:

  • Eye shadow

There are in total five colors:

Bough Grey (a soft gray with a hint of blue and sheen)

Dame’s desire (a purple with red undertone, it is actually re-promoted from the Dame Edna Collection back in 2008)

Free to Be (a coral color, it will stay as a permanent item)

Give Me Liberty of London (a creamy pink color, it will stay as a permanent item)

Birds & Berries (a bluer teal color ). I got Birds & Berries; because I love the color teal, and the fact that this shadow has a veluxe pearl finish (which means it is very pigmented and smooth to apply).

  • Blushes

There are two blushes in this collection:

Dirty Plum, is a dirty plummy purple. It would look much better on darker skin tones.

Prim and Proper. The blush is a beige color that has a nude feel. If you look closely, it has champagne sheen in the pan. I purchased Prim and Proper, because it matches my skin tone and I consider this blush versatile: I can mix it with more pink-toned blushes and create a healthy, warm pink on my face, or use it as a bronzer.

  • Lipsticks

Four colors came out in this collection:

Petals and Peacocks, a very bright pink. It almost looks similar to Show Orchard but not as bright.

Ever Hip, a peachy coral color in a cream sheen finish.

Peach Stock, a neutral peach color with a satin finish;

my favorite of the four, Blooming Lovely. It is a mauve-y lilac color with a glossy sheen. It should work better on pigmented lips. You can wear it by itself, or brighten it by applying a lipgloss on top of it. I tried both ways, and I can’t get enough of this color!

  • Lipgloss

There are four different colors for lipglass in this collection:

English Accents: is a creamy, blue-toned pink. It reminds me very much of snob lipstick.

A Different Groove: A deep purple with hint of brown and silver pearl. This color will brighten the face on darker skin.

Perennial High style: Another lovely color, a creamy bright pink with coral undertone.

Frankly Fresh: A very fresh peachy color with gold and peachy sheen. It works very subtly on my lips, to the extent that I can use it as a creamy nude lipstick.

In this collection, there are two beauty powder shades (Summer Rose and Shell Pearl), two nail lacquer colors (Blue India and Vestral white). I did not purchase any of those, because I have similar colors in my current makeup collection. Blue India, however, is an exception, I might need to get a hold of it after the collection officially comes out.
