Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Coming soon from MAC is a unique color makeup collaboration with rapper/singer Brooke Candy. Featuring an array of fun and eye-catching products, the collection is available starting May 5th, 2016. Today I have some swatches of a few lip colors from the collection. To read on, click.......
MAC x Brooke Candy Lipstick in "Mind Control"
Packaging:
The MAC x Brooke Candy Collection features some very interesting packaging. Unlike some MAC celebrity collaborations, the packaging of this collection is completely decked out! All the pieces have a reflective chrome finish printed with a ghoulish splatter and drip design so if you are a collector of MAC limited edition products, this range cannot be missed!

Formulation:
The MAC Brooke Candy Lipstick in "Mind Control" ($22.50 CAD) is a beautiful cherry red. This shade features a pigmented amplified cream formulation that's both smooth and buttery. The finish has a nice shine and the color is very hydrating. Although the color is not very special, the badass packaging definitely makes up for it!
The Vamplify Lipgloss in "Til Death Do Us Part" ($25.50) is a deep violet shimmer with an mostly opaque finish. This is a thick and pigmented gloss that certainly makes a statement. I find the formulation a tad sticky but the wear is better than your average gloss. However, I did experience some noticeable bleeding.
For my lip swatches below, I paired it with the Lip Pencil in "Night Crawler" ($21.50 CAD), which is a unique eggplant purple. The formulation is slightly drying but the color is fairly pigmented.
