Swatches: La Leyenda, Dame Un Beso

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post. I keep saying how I have so much to share and I do. However, work was taking up most of my time. For the time being I have to take a step back. So I figured I’d take advantage of the free time. If I’m being honest I can use the distraction. My head is spinning just thinking about all of the horrific things happening in the world right now along with some unsettling news that I received just last week. If I can’t bake, I’ll have to blog. I have to do something.

A few years back MAC released the first Selena Collection. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the products. While I was very happy with my purchases, I remember feeling a little underwhelmed. So when I heard that MAC was releasing a second collection I was hoping for something more. I do feel like they stepped it up just a bit, but I’m still not completely satisfied. I was expecting bolder shades. More bling. More… I don’t know. Just more!

This time around I only purchased two items. I opted for one Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color in Dame Un Beso and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in La Leyenda. Dame Un Beso is described as a raspberry pink. It applied nice and evenly. It made for a fairly comfortable wear, however I wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable. It’s a gorgeous shade though! La Leyenda is described as a rich gold on pearl. I absolutely love the rose! This piece right here is exactly what I envisioned for the perfect Selena Collection. So this piece was a must have for me. La Leyenda is the most beautiful highlighter. I’m sure many of us have quite a few gold highlighters in our collection, so unless you are a fan you probably don’t need this one. Then again can we ever have too many gold highlighters?

You can see the MAC Selena La Reina Collection in action below. I’m wearing Dame Un Beso on my lips and La Leyenda as my highlighter.

Overall, I’d have to say that while I was still hoping for more, I did love the pieces I purchased. And out of the two at least one of them was exactly what I had envisioned for the perfect Selena Collection. I still say they could have blinged out the lipsticks a bit more. While the shades are gorgeous, the packaging is pretty plain.
