MAC x Caitlyn Jenner "Finally Free" Lipstick Swatches and Review

When MAC announced that they would collaborate with Caitlyn Jenner, I wasn't really surprise. I admire Caitlyn when she came out because of here fearlessness and showing what's she's inside. The name "Finally Free" is really a perfect name for the lipstick because it tells that finally she can tell and show the world who she really is. 

MAC Cosmetics Promotional AD

On their MAC website

Packaging : Comes in a bullet shaped lipstick size. Black casing same packaging from MAC's permanent line.

On their website they describe the shade as "Midtone Rosey Nude - Cremesheen" And they said :
     "Caitlyn Jenner has fearlessly shared her transition with the world. Her new MAC Lipstick, Finally Free champions All Ages, All Raced and All Sexes. 100% of the selling price goes to the MAC AIDS Fund Transgender Initiative, to further its work in support of transgender communities."

This is me wearing MAC Finally Free lipstick.

Disclaimer : I bought this product with my own money and I am not affiliated with this company. This review is base on my own honest opinion. I wasn't paid for this nor influenced.

Product Name : MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Finally Free Lipstick

Product Edition : Limited Edition - online only on MAC website (US)

Final Thoughts : I love the shade of this lipstick. It's completely good to every skintone and it flatters your skin. A rosey, neutral shade that's good for an everyday wear and can really go with every style of makeup that you put on whether a neutral look or an evening look.

So, have you seen Finally Free Lipstick and what do you think?

NOTD : There's a Jade wishing on the Moon?

A few weeks ago, I was browsing on my fave online store of nail polish and a green shade (you know my fave color is green) caught my eye and thought, when was these released??? I was so excited that I, without any second thought, I clicked "buy"!

Upon receiving my order, like a kid who's getting a gift on her birthday, I immediately opened the package and saw the nail polishes. 

Essie Oilpaints is one of the 2016 collections being released recently. But, there are only 3 shades and 1 top coat. I only bought one shade and the top coat.

Essie Jade in Manhattan - is a metallic jade green shade. There's no streak line and it's smooth upon application. The shade is opaque that one coat is enough though, if you want a more darker green you can apply another coat and it has this matte-ish like finish also.

Over the Moon-Stone - is a top coat included in the 4 bottle collection. This has a transformation effect. There's no big transformation here but I notice the shade become more brighter and shinier. 

Overall, I love the swatch! I tested them and at the first day after I applied I don't have any problem of chipping nails. Only got nail chips after 7 days which for me is a good thing because in my experience no matter how good a nail polish is I always end up chipping a nail after a day.

How about you? Do you like this shade?

NOTD : Rainy Days in May

Last week's been cloudy and raining, hence, my nail polish was inspired by the weather. And this week is no exception. This tells me that in a few days summer will soon be over. Gone those hot days when all you want is to have cold drinks to quench your thirst and refresh your body from the heat. So, my nail polish shade is no different from last week's shade.

China Glaze Elephant Walk  - from the 2012 On Safari Collection , a subtle silver shimmer light grey shade but sometimes with different angle and lighting it changes into cool toned grey or greenish grey. 


Thanks for reading my blog :)
