MAC Sugarsweet: Review and Swatches
This spring, M·A·C is all temptation... frostings, finishes, fillings. Each of them whipped, creamy, deliciously stylish, as inspired by the world's most popular sugar-sweet desserts. Never has a season looked so eat-me-up gorgeous!
Overall, we see a whole bunch of repromotes to the Sugarsweet collection that your wallet will be thanking MAC for. It's a great time to stock up on colors such as Lollipop Loving lipstick (from fafi) and Aquavert eyeshadow (from lure, bait, hook) that some of us missed out on.
What I picked up: Sugarshot eyeshadow, Sweet Thing lipstick and Peppermint Patti nail polish.
Most of these were repromotes from previous MAC collections that I already own. The only shade I picked up was Sugarshot. Much like Nylon or Phloof, Sugarshot is a great hightlighter that you can't go wrong with.
Mostly repromotes and permnament colors, Lollipop loving and Sweet Thing were my two faves.
Tricolour Lipglass is a colourwave of three stacked shades with varying pearl combination in one lipstick vial.
The tricolour lipglass sure sits pretty in her little container with three blingtastaic colors sure to grab you attention. But, as far as the color pay-off, notta. Tasty, the only one I picked up had the best color pay off out of the five.
Seasonal Peach (repromote from Cremesheen) and Peppermint Patti are MAC's two newest editions to the Sugarsweet Collection. When I was at the MAC store swatching, I noticed Seasonal Peach wasn't nearly as streaky as I remembered. Espically, with only two coats being used on the above swatch and one coat with Peppermint Patti.
Yes, Peppermint Patti is beyond gorgeous which doesn't suprise me because it's lighter shade of green (hello). You might tell yourself you don't need it, but you really DO!
I'll be posting the nail polish swatches in a seperate post later today. The Sugarsweet collection is now available MAC Cosmetics. Seasonal Peach and Peppermint Patti sold out already on the MAC site, but you can still find them at Nordies, Macy's or your MAC counter.

I picked up Peppermint Patty after work form the MAC store in the Mall of America and the girl said she only two left! I was very tempted to buy them both but only got one and put it on last night... It is such a fabulous color, but I totally agree with the streaky part. You will need three coats but it is worth it. Now I just need to track down a backup bottle.

I also picked up Peppermint Patti after work yesterday and heard the same story! I guess the counter at Macy's was mobbed in the morning so there were only 3 left. I'm glad I went when I did! I picked up the "Consume Me" Tricolour but am still on the fence about whether it was worth the money in regards to the staying power. Do you think it lasts? I'm desperate for a gloss that stays!

Hi Sarah, Isn't the color just fab?! I love it :) So, glad you could get one at least. Hi Clapster, Yay!! Glad you snatched on up! Do you love it? The tricolour is pretty sheer and the lasting power is so so. Chanel Glossimers are my absolute favorite, they rock! They cost about 5 bucks more than MAC's Tricolur, but is well worth the purchase :) Try visiting a Chanel counter, I'm sure they'll give you a little purse size sample to try out. :)
