Mac Wild Extract & Time to Shine
I'm back again with more swatches. This go around I wanted to review some of the frost lipsticks from the newly added and permanent (woot woot) Bangin Brilliant line. I knew when I saw swatches of these two lipsticks they would be everything for me and for various reasons. But before I get into that let me actually show you the lipstick.
On the MAC website Wild Extract is described as a lime green with electric pearl. It is a beautiful lime almost chartreuse green with lovely gold shimmers. Time to shine, on the other hand is described as a silver with white pearl. It looks a lot like Bubbles or Metal Maven from the Riveting collection that was released about 6 years ago. I'm a shimmery girl at heart and the glitters in both of these are to die for. I had to get Wild Extract for two reasons, for one, it reminded me of my most favorite lip gloss that is now discontinued Spring Bean (it was a green gloss with gold shimmer that made my lips look like they had honey on them) and for two, I had a feeling that if I put this on top of MAC Costa Chic, it would dupe my most favorite lipstick of all time, MAC Lollipop Loving, which was limited edition and no longer available! As you'll see below, both are going to be great for mixing, and I may even wear them alone.
I am so happy with the pigment of these lipsticks. MAC has made me a believer yet again. And I have to be honest, I had been fairly disappointed with recent collections. Matte lipsticks were taking over and the creativity that MAC has been known for seemed to be dwindling. So, to see these colors, along with the other additions I am very pleased. And I am even happier to know that I no longer have to cry and complain about not having Lollipop Loving, as I can now create a more pigmented version of it! I could not be happier! The pics below show what the colors look like alone, I will be playing with glosses and liners to see what sort of cool combinations I can come up with.
