MAC Osbournes Collection- My picks and swatches

Hey guys,

Most of you would know MAC collaborated with Sharon and Kelly Osbourne and came out with a really fun collection that is now available in Australia online and in store.

I picked up a few products from the collection and I am quite impressed with them. From the Sharon Osbourne collection I picked up the blush in Peaches and Cream and lip pencil in Cranberry. From Kelly's collection I picked up the blush in Cheeky Bugger and lipstick in Kelly Yum Yum.

I really like both collections packaging which is red for Sharon and a light lilac for Kelly. Also Sharon's packaging is more glossy and Kelly's packaging gives a satin/ soft look. All the products have the corresponding signatures on them, which I thought was really cool. 

So now onto what I think of the products, the Cranberry lip pencil is a gorgeous medium reddish pink which looks really good on its own or topped of with a nude or clear gloss. I am going to be using this pencil a lot during spring and summer. Peaches and Cream blush is a gorgeous pink colour that looks absolutely beautiful on the cheeks. The consistency is a little hard but I get that with all MAC blushes. That does not hinder the pigmentation of this blush, you only need a little product for a full impact. The finish if this blush is Satin and there is no shimmer or glitter in this blush but it is not completely matte too.
Kelly's blush in Cheeky Bugger is a little disappointing because it is a little too light for my complexion. I can still work with it now, but in summer when I get a little tanned this would completely wash me out.  It is a light baby pink colour with warm undertones. When I swatched this shade I had tiny flex of glitter transfer to my swatch. The finish of this blush is Satin too but I am not sure if mine had a teeny tiny bit of glitter in by mistake. Lastly I got the lipstick in Kelly Yum Yum which is a bright candy pink  with more warm undertones. 

In shade L-R Cranberry, Peaches and Cream, Kelly Yum Yum, Cheeky Bugger.

In direct sunlight L-R Cranberry, Peaches and Cream, Kelly Yum Yum, Cheeky Bugger.

As you can see in the above swatch there are some flex of glitter on Cheeky Bugger. It did not transfer to my cheek but I could see some in the pan too. 

Overall I think this was a very nice collection with some really different colours and my top picks would be the Cranberry Lip pencil and Peaches and Cream blush. Both these products would look good on a wide variety of skin tones.

Did you buy anything from this collection? What are your top picks??
