A Little Bit of Summer

5 September 2011

As some of you may know, I will always be a MAC Lipstick junkie, and I love the shades that come out in their limited edition collections. I thought this years Summer 'Fashion Flower' Collection was beautiful and one of my favourite items was of course, a lipstick!

Summer Shower' is not your normal shade of lipstick. It's a glaze, and I am a fan of glaze for when I'm not after something too heavy or in your face, which is perfect for work. In the tube, it appears as a greeny, minty shade with aqua blue sparkles in - sounds slightly scary maybe?! On the lips however, it comes out as a pearly iridescent shade with sparkles that shine aqua, purple, pink and a hint of mint. It's truly mesmerizing. I'd been umming and ahhing about getting this lipstick since the day it came out as it's so interesting, but was never too sure. However, when I saw it was goodbye section of the MAC website, I knew I had to get it! It is beautiful on the lips as it just catches the light and gives you a hint of glitter and glamour. I can see it becoming a huge favourite of mine. For clear lip gloss lovers, this would look stunning under a clear gloss!

Unfortunately it's now been discontinued as it was a limited edition item. However, if you are after something similar or like iridescent shades, MAC Pervette is a good one to try instead (swatch on my swatch page!). I will try and get a lip swatch of this on my MAC lipstick swatch page during the week!

Was anyone else as intrigued by this shade as much as me or love iridescent shades too? I would love to know! Hope you all have a fabulous week!
