MAC Huggable Glass collection photos, swatches, review

MAC are starting off the year as they mean to go on and that's in fighting form.  With twelve shades of their limited edition Huggable Glass collection, gloss fans can be safe in the knowledge that mattes aren't taking over the world yet no matter how many are launched each year!

I got sent three of the twelve shades to play with and if you know me at all, you'll know the one I'm obsessed with!  From palest to most vibrant, we have the shades Embraceable Me, Such A Sweetheart and Love Buzz, pictured above and swatched below.  The applicator has this flattened paddle look so you can lash the colour onto the lips and then use the thinner sides to create a crisp lip line.

Like the Huggable lipsticks, the Glasses are really comfortable to wear, smell lovely and these three have made me want more.  They feel really lightweight and the brighter colours pack a punch in the pigmentation stakes.  An absolute winner in my book!

Embraceable Me

Fans of milky nude lips will love Embraceable Me.  Shades like this one don't do much for my colouring but I know Joanne will love it so she'll be getting this one to play with.  I think it would probably suit me better applied over a darker pink liner, but for the purposes of the blog post, I wanted to show it to you in it's natural colour.  Milky nude.  That's going to play havoc with my SEO!

Such a sweetheart

Now we're talking!  Such a sweetheart is described as an intense bright watermelon and as it leans on the coral end of things, this was an instant winner and was love at first sight.  I've been wearing this so much in recent weeks and is a shade I'll get so much wear out of until the end of summer and if I don't use it all up by then, I'll be a happy camper.

Love Buzz

Love Buzz terrifies me to my very core because it's super bright and in your face!  And yet I love it.  Despite not wearing much pink, this blue based pink screams out for thick black winged liner and so I'll have to rock that one day.  Two things completely out of my comfort zone!  The tip of the wand make for really precise application, giving a crisp lip line and I didn't have to do any tidying up with this shade.

The MAC Huggable Glass collection is in Brown Thomas now and each shade will set you back €22.  Are we intrigued?
