MAC Ellie Goulding collection photos, swatches, review!

Do you ever just look at a MAC collection and think to yourself "Uh oh"....  That was me when I first clapped eyes on Ellie Goulding's collection with MAC.  And that's because I took one look at it and couldn't see anything that I didn't want to try.  Usually with limited edition collections, there are a few pieces that instantly catch my eye, but with this collection, every piece is right up my street.  Like up my street and around the corner.  It's all up in my cul-de-sac.

I was sent a few pieces from the collection to test out and they've already been getting so much use and that's what I love about the whole collection.  It's so wearable.  No mad colours that'll be sitting in your makeup drawer.  Look at these three products.  Peachy goodness and you know I love all things peach on the lips and cheeks!

A quick note on the packaging.  It's nice and sleek and while I get that the embossing on the powder and printed on the lip products is Ellie's initials, I can't not see the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows symbol.  Good thing I love HP and am a little bit obsessed with it.  But that's EG, not HP, OK?

MAC Ellie Goulding Powder Blush - I'll Hold My Breath (€30)

MAC Ellie Goulding Powder Blush - I'll Hold My Breath
To say I'm in love with the powder blush would be an understatement... The bronzer has enough warmth to give colour to the face but not too much so it can still be used as a soft contour.  It has a slight bit of shimmer running through it that isn't too obvious on the skin and it seems to give me a really soft focused finish on my cheeks.  This is a grand thing.  Love a bit of soft focus so I do.  And as for the blush... If I was a blush, I'd be this one.  It is pure peachy perfection and my only gripe with the product as a whole is that there isn't more blush in the pan.  I'd have been happy out with half blush half bronzer.  Or if they ever want to bring out the blush on it's own, I would stockpile that immediately!  This is an absolutely stunning compact and I will have to ration it now...

MAC Ellie Goulding Plushglass - Goodness Gracious (€25)

MAC Ellie Goulding Plushglass - Goodness Gracious
Oh what's this?  A gorgeous peachy pink lipgloss that's super comfortable to wear, isn't sticky or gloopy and matches perfectly with my skin tone?  Yes.  Goodness Gracious is also going to be rationed over the coming months because it's got spring and summer written all over it.  I can't cope with how beautiful this is and the one and only gripe I have with this is that I wish it was bigger.  That's what she said.

MAC Ellie Goulding Patentpolish Lip Pencil - Revved Up (€25)

MAC Ellie Goulding Patentpolish Lip Pencil - Revved Up
I have to hold my hands up and say I'd never heard of of the Patentpolish Lip Pencils before.  Bad blogger.  But Revved Up has piqued my interest and I foresee me collecting more of them.  The formula is nice and creamy, leaving a satin finish on the lips that's again, really comfortable to wear.  It's a perfect product for slicking on at your desk or when you're running out the door because you don't need a mirror to apply it.  This soft peachy pink has my natural lip loving self really happy and I'm obsessed.

MAC's Ellie Goulding collection is on counters now and I urge you to go and check it out.  If you have lips or cheeks, you need to investigate the products before they disappear!

Do we lurve this and more importantly, do you see the Deathly Hallows symbol on the products?
