MAC A Fantasy of Flowers: Perfect Topping & Naked Bud

Perusing the fantasy of flowers collection it occurred to me that I don't think I have ever tried the much hyped about skinfinishes. Aghast at this revelation I bought the lighter of the two, Perfect Topping (£22).

Its described as a pale pearlised pink, though I find it also has a golden, slightly peach tone. It feels quite smooth though a tad powdery and dry (although it does apply well). The finish has so much sheen that it certainly doesn't fall into a natural looking highlighter for me and I find it easy to over do.

Though I do really like the look it gives to the skin when using a minimal amount. Actually I quite like using this as an eyeshadow topper, blended over a finished look it soften any edges and gives a slight golden sheen.
Swatched below on the left and then blended in,

Ingredients:

From the lipsticks I went for Naked Bud (£15), which is a lustre formula. The colour is a sheer peachy/beige nude.


Yes, you probably have similar colours but its a really nice shade that goes with anything and you can just throw in your handbag.

Ingredients:

I'm pleased with these items but I can't say there was anything else in the collection that grabbed my eye.

I bought these from a MAC store.

  3. I really like Naked Bud, it's the kind of shade I would go for - I was thinking of b2m for one of the lipsticks from this collection. Agree with Liss on Perfect Topping - the shade looks lovely on you.

  4. I saw and swatched these the other day but for some reason I just can't seem to get back into MAC these days. I did like the texture of both blushes and they are really lovely but I passed. I might go back for one, I just don't know. :)

    1. I seem to have MAC phases, I did dip out from the brand but some collections have started getting my interest again, I do think that a lot of their collections seem to just be a re-cycle of past ones though and it can all seem a bit familiar ;)

  5. Great idea to use Perfect Topping as an eyeshadow-I haven't used mine yet but must dig it out! Lightscapade is also beautiful!
