MAC Fashion Sets Lipsticks Review and Swatches!

I haven't purchased MAC in a really long time. For the past three years or so I haven't really been into MAC like I was say 5 years ago. Back then I used to go out and purchase an entire collection! I was that bad! Lol. Right before I started my blog was when I started to get into other makeup lines, but one thing I try to keep up on with MAC is their lipsticks, because we can deny that MAC makes some gorgeous lipsticks! 

I was really looking forward to the Fashion Sets lipsticks because all of the colors are bright and bold which is right up my alley. You all know I love a bright lip!

Ablaze, Silly, Embrace Me, and Heroine

Beneath Embrace Me and Heroine are their matching lip pencils.

All of these are a matte formula and are highly opaque. They apply smoothly but can be drying overtime because of the matte formulation, but this also makes them long-wearing. 

These colors are gorgeous and so prefect for Spring. Ablaze is surprisingly my favorite from the collection. I would have thought it would have been one of the pinks but it's such a perfect coral! Silly is a pretty  bubblegum pink. Embrace Me is of course a beautiful fuchsia pink. Heroine looks a tad bit dark on me so I've worn it with Silly as an ombre lip look and it looks great. I really love Heroine but I have to make it work. I can't just throw it on because it just looks so dark on my pale skin, but I still love the purple tone.

If you can get your hands on these definitely do. I know they are selling out everywhere, but call all your local MAC stores and counters to see if they have any in-stock or will be getting any more shipments in. I know some stores will let you pay over the phone and ship an item to you, which I have done in the past ;) lol. 

Which are your favorites from the Fashion Sets collection? Were you able to snatch any up before they sold out?
