Boom Boom Bloom from MAC Cosmetics

We're trying desperately to hang onto our summer glow, and today the arrival of pretty makeup has reminded us how flattering these shades look when the sun hits your skin. Editor Trudi Brewer shares one of MAC's most beautiful collection we have seen this year.

Aptly named Boom Boom Bloom, the range comes in the girliest shades, adorned with petals and scented in the sweet aroma of cherry blossoms. We are swooning. It's a full line up colour for the cheeks, lips, and eyes including a rose-tinted illuminator, High-Light Powder, and sublime Eyeshadow Palette kit. All in shades very wearable shade of pink. The eye shadow palette (which our style director swiped from the box the moment it arrived) is ideal for creating a dreamy, doe-eyed look to wear every day. For the lips, there is a selection of rose, coral and raspberry coloured pink Lipsticks and sheer, glossy Lipglass. As well as a collectors edition of Prep and Prime Fix + aptly named Cherry Blossom. The entire range is in shades of bold to soft pink all universally flattering to any skin colouring. Finally, the packaging is adorned with pretty Cherry Blossoms and once to sniff it, you will be hooked, it’s the softest scent of floral cherry. While the sun shines (and when it stops) this collection will ensure our skin is glowing, courtesy of this petal-powered, limited edition (must have) makeup collection.
