MAC | Bloggers Obsessions "All Of My Purple Life" & "Hocus Pocus" Review

Alright so I know that I'm hella late with this post and if you're just now hearing about this collection then so are you ;o) A couple of months ago MAC introduced the Bloggers Obsessions Collection, where they chose nine popular beauty bloggers to help create the collection. Among the 9 ladies were Afrobella and Lianne, the two AA bloggers chosen to represent the collection. I decided to purchase both of their products. I'm really loving how well both shades coordinate with each other. Check out my look below. 

All Of My Purple Life Lipglass 

Hocus Pocus Eyeshadow

Uh, you kinda have to excuse my brow highlight in this pic, I toned it down after I saw the pic. I'm still learning ;o) 

Glow:  I'll start with Hocus Pocus, I've gotta admit that I was a little skeptical about purchasing this shade at first because some of the photos and swatches I saw weren't very appealing. But I'm so glad I went against my instincts and got it because a lot of the photos on the internet don't give it much justice. It's a really pretty smokey gray and to my surprise it's shimmery too. I knew that I was going to buy All Of My Purple Life from the moment I laid eyes on it. It's a really rich plummy/purple and very flattering to my skin-tone. It also has a bit of shimmer in it.

Glare: OK, so the only downer for me is that All Of My Purple life doesn't really look....well, "purple". Well at least not as purple as it does in the promo pics.  It's more of a plummy shade on my lips, which I still ADORE! But if you visit Afrobella's Tumblr she has pics of different women wearing the shade and it's amazing yet beautiful how this shade looks different on every woman. I have darker lips so that may be why it reads plummy and not purple on me. It's still a great color though!

Would I Recommend It? Uh hell yeah! And if you haven't gotten it by now then you just may be out of luck because the entire collection is limited edition and will be gone by the end of this month. 

Overall Glam: Honestly I wish that I could've purchased the entire collection but I'm a girl on a budget so that wasn't really an option for me. I really love and appreciate that MAC did this collection for bloggers, although only a selected few were able to participate in the making of these products I feel like it gave all beauty bloggers a voice and it's very inspiring.

Product(s) in this post were purchased by me.

  1. Did you use a liner or lipstick a long with the gloss? That may change the color as well.
