It's been quite a while since I actually cared about a MAC collection, but as soon as I heard about their collaboration with Kelly and Sharon Osbourne, I was pretty much sold - and that's before I had even stalked out product pictures.
Once I'd seen the images, I fell hard for the Kelly collection and ordered it from Brown Thomas as soon as it came out last week. I'm not sure what's still available but the collection is totally worth hunting down. I don't follow many celebrities closely, but I've always liked Kelly Osbourne and, of course, her makeup! I love the lavender packaging and the entire colour palette she went with for the products - it just feels very right and very 'her'.
Let's get the lipstick out of the way first, because I love it. Kelly Yum-Yum is a less neon, more wearable version of MAC's brightest pink lipstick colour, Candy Yum-Yum (which Kelly actually wore long before it first came out, fact fans). Myself and Sinead loved Candy Yum-Yum when it first came out - we even reserved our tubes at our local counter - but these days, I feel that it looks a little funny on me unless I've very little eye makeup on. It's also very yellow - admittedly, so is Kelly Yum-Yum, but I far prefer it. The texture is better and the colour is far easier to pull off.
Swatched: MAC Cheeky Bugger blush, MAC Kelly Yum-Yum lipstick
On to the blush. This is an absolutely stunning colour for paler skins- a real porcelain pink with warm undertones. It kind of reminds me of Fleur Power but paler - it is different enough to warrant a purchase! MAC blushes are some of my absolute favourites - they're a product I always return to.
