I love a new collection launch, particularly one that combines both punchy and delicate fragrances with best selling lip shades. The newly launched Shadescents from Mac includes six fragrances that are inspired by Mac’s best selling iconic lipstick shades.
THE COLLECTION OF MAC SHADESCENTS
No full set of lip shades would be complete without a soft pink, a nude, a bold pink, a berry, a striking purple and a hollywood glamour red. The Shadescents collection takes inspiration from these iconic shades, with each scent representing each shade. The collection includes:
- Ruby Woo - A woody scent with floral notes
- Candy Yum-Yum - Fruity and floral gourmand, this scent is a little sweeter
- Lady Danger - A woody floriental fragrance
- My Heroine - A sophisticated woody leather scent
- Creme d’Nude - A classic amber musk
- Velvet Teddy - Playful wild honey
The scent names are kept simple, being named after the lipstick shade. Each fragrance has its own personality, taking after its pairing shade.
REVIEW OF MY FAVOURITE SHADESCENT
My favourite scent in the collection is Lady Danger. It’s such a warm and unusual fragrance, without being over powering. It compliments its accompanying bold red lipstick shade perfectly, as the scent is bold yet classic. With bright cherry notes at the top, it has a natural fruity scent that adds that little bit of sweetness every feminine fragrance needs. I love the style of the bottle too, which looks great on my dressing table but is also small enough to pop into my bag, it’s contemporary and simple but it stands out too. In addition, the scent lasts all day. I’ve worn my Lady Danger fragrance several times now and have had loads of compliments on it, even in the evening when I applied it first thing.
