In addition to our coverage of the Give Me Liberty of London unveiling party we attended, we’ve got a collection of photos and swatches for you! Be prepared, this collection is going to put a hurting on your wallet…
Lipstick from left:
Ever Hip – Creamy light coral (Cremesheen)
Peachstock – Neutral peach (Satin, PRO)
Blooming Lovely – Creamy greyed lilac mauve (Amplified)
Petals & Peacocks – Creamy bright magenta pink (Amplified)
Standouts: Can I say all of them? I just did. Peachstock apparently causes quite the commotion (it is not LE, but is PRO only). I feel I should get it while I have the chance. If pressed, I’d have to say Petals & Peacocks (which reminds me of slightly more subtle version of Hollywood Nights from Heatherette) and Ever Hip (which is a bit more sheer than I usually prefer, but is just so light, fresh and summery) are my favorites.
Eyeshadow from left:
Birds & Berries – Frosted dark green blue (Veluxe Pearl)
Dame’s Desire – Frosty mid-tone reddish purple (Frost)
Bough Grey – Mid-tone bluish grey (Satin)
Free to Be – Creamy true coral (Matte)
Missing from the photo: Give Me Liberty of London – Flat creamy pink (Matte)
This disappeared on the lily-white underside of my arm. I’m hoping it works better on lids!
Standouts: I fall for a beautiful teal every time. Birds & Berries looks like the deep sea, shimmering when the light captures it. And though I own at least 20 grey shadows, Bough Grey seems to somehow be a more perfect grey than every one I already own (my swatch is light, this can be much richer).
Lipglass from left:
Frankly Fresh – Neutral pink beige with soft pearl
A Different Groove – Deep purple brown with pearl
Perennial High Style – Creamy bright pink coral
English Accents – Creamy mid-tone blue pink
Sorry, no swatches on these. But check them out at Temptalia, who always does such an incredible job.
Standouts: I truly need all four. And you may too…
Standout: Blue India may just be the first MAC polish I ever buy (yes, the first!) It looks very hip, yet very pretty (which is something not all fashion forward shades pull off).
Dirty Plum is seems really dark to me. I think this would be better suited for a darker skin tone (or someone with a very light hand). Prim & Proper is pretty, but unless you’re a real blush fanatic, (and I saw plenty of those freaking out over this at the party tonight) I’d skip these and head straight to the Beauty Powders.
Shell Pearl – Pale peach with gold pearl
Summer Rose – Soft violet pink with pearl
Sorry again, no swatches. But head over to Temptalia to see just how amazing they both are. These are apparently both repromotes, but I have neither and desperately need them both! Especially Shell Pearl, which is everything Orgasm is not (meaning, it’s not garishly frosty). You will flip at how smooth these powders feel. They are so finely milled, they honestly feel silk. I feel darker gals may want to skip these, as they are pretty light (kind of a blush/highlighter hybrid).
The collection also has…
Liberty of London Makeup Bags; laminated makeup bags decorated with an exclusively created flower and bird pattern for the collection. Zip closures boasts a oversized floral pull.
Small: Measures 8″ x 2.75″ x 3.5″
Medium: Measures 8″ x 2.75″ x 5″
Liberty of London Scarf
A limited-edition scarf designed with an exclusively created floral pattern for the collection. The fabric is a soft wool/viscose blend and is made in Italy. This is pricey at $95, but a real beaute.
I hope you have as much shopping this collection as I did!
