Beauty Review: M.A.C. Dame Edna Collection

“Hello possums!” Dame Edna Everage is in the house! With her zesty zingers, cutting-edge appearance – lilac hair (which is completely natural), rhinestone-encrusted face furniture,
fanciful frocks – frankly; there’s nothing like a Dame! And there's definitely no one like Dame Edna!

In M.A.C.'s latest post-holiday collection, the Dame Edna collection is everything like their muse! The packaging inspired by her famously lilac hair and her signature rhinestone-encrusted glasses, will definitely bring out the inner zany dame in you. However, the sticker packaging reminded me of the Fafi collection which I wasn't really a big fan of. Am I alone on this?

I wasn't really blown away by the collection or the colours. Don't get me wrong - it's all very pretty but nothing I haven't seen before from M.A.C. I did get to try out Splendid Lipglass, a pale pinky coral. It's a nice colour although very similar to a M.A.C. classic, Prrr. All in all, the collection was just alright for me.

What did you think? Love it? Hate it?

I think the collection is okay, but the packaging is cheap. Couldn't they have emblazoned the logos on instead of doing it with stickers?

I noticed that the stickers snagged on my fingernail--I just patted them back into place. I was surprised that the logos weren't embossed.

I love my High-Light powder, though, and Possum Nose Pink is my new HG pink gloss!
