MAC Fantasy of Flowers Dreaming Dahlia and Heavenly Hybrid lipstick

MAC Fantasy of Flowers Dreaming Dahlia and Heavenly Hybrid lipstick

I really was going to skip this collection, but when I saw these pretties in store, I HAD to have them. Dreaming Dahlia and Heavenly Hybrid are my 2 faves out of the 6 lustre lipsticks MAC released for the Fantasy of Flowers collection.

 

MAC Dreaming Dahlia lipstick
Dreaming Dahlia – described as a sheer red coral, this glossy and shimmery lipstick goes on like a glaze and gives a hint of color.

I expected this to be a bolder, brighter color but I love how subtle it is.

L-R: Dreaming Dahlia, Cut a Caper, Razzledazzler

MAC Heavenly Hybrid lipstick
Heavenly Hybrid – described as a mid-tone berry, this lustre doesn’t have as much shimmer as Dreaming Dahlia.

This color is very close to the Phlox Garden fluidline (my liner matches my lips!)

L-R: Heavenly Hybrid, Midnight Mambo mineralize, Purple Rite

What I like: I love the subtle sheer pops of color these lipsticks deliver. They are perfect for an amped up day look or subtle night look. I could see these being universally flattering.
What I don’t like: I am not a huge fan of the lustre finish as they tend to be a bit drying.

Final thoughts: These are very pretty but not different or original. Although I do love that every lipstick in this collection has the botany code of its flower on the box!

Eye look is Phlox Garden and Sassy Moss fluidline. Check out my post on these!

    • Aww thanks! I have a lot of purples because I love how it complements my eyes.

    Oh we love Heavenly Hybrid! I wish I had gotten a couple other lipsticks – Dreaming Dahlia is really nice!

    • I find the lustre formula a bit drying. I am glad I stopped at 2 lipsticks. (OMG I HAVE SO MANY MAC LIPSTICK, HELP)

  • Chelsea LeBlanc

    These shades are gorgeous! I really like that Dreaming Dahlia isn’t as bright as it looks. It makes it the perfect shade for a subtle pop of color.

    • I agree. I was thinking it would be more bold but was relieved it was subtle.

  • Oh is that what those codes are? I had no idea! That’s funny. I haven’t tried these on my lips yet because I still need to photograph them, but they look lovely on you!

    • blogger problems! I have a pile of pretty things I need to take pics of and all I want to do is use it. I’ve been trying to take product shots as things come in so I don’t end up not using and reviewing stuff.

    Heavenly Hybrid looks so pretty on you! I haven’t tried any of the Lustre finishes, but since you mentioned they are a bit drying, I don’t think I’m too interested in trying them soon…I’m not a big fan of that. Thanks for sharing!

  • heavenly hybrid looks great on you!
