MAC Loud and Clear + Glow Play Blush Haul

MAC Loud and Clear and Glow Play Blush Haul Picks

I have a MAC haul to share today with swatches and a few beauty looks! I haven’t been this excited about a MAC launch in a long time and I have a MAC Loud and Clear + Glow Play Blush haul today. Several things have already sold out so if you haven’t checked out the collections yet you may have to do a bit of hunting. If you have your eye on anything I highly recommend buying sooner than later. I found mostly hits with the two collection launches and have a few misses.

Glow Play Blush

MAC Glow Play Blush Haul

The Glow Play Blushes ($30 each) are a unique cushiony creamy blush. They have almost a bouncy feel and apply like a hybrid cream-powder. The colors are buildable and also easy to blend out but there were a couple of shades that didn’t show up on my medium skin. Colors I hauled:

  • Totally Synced is a pale lavender, I swatched with a very heavy hand below, on my face it is quite a bit more sheer, for this one to show up I have to layer heavily and once layered, the purple pink is a bit odd on my complexion
  • So Natural is a gorgeous natural beige with a hint of shimmer, this is a very natural color, I also have to layer heavily for this to show up, but I really like that it gives a super natural contour on my face
  • Blush Please is a really pretty natural mauve rose with a slight sheen
  • Cheeky Devil is an ultra pale pink, it’s sheer so it barely shows up on my skin
  • Cheer Up is another light pink, this is also lighter on my complexion and is most likely going to be best for fair to light skin tones
  • That’s Peachy is a pretty soft peach (my favorite!)
  • Groovy is a bright coral peach that I think will be perfect for summer

On my skin I found they lasted all day and blended in seamlessly to the face. They have a slightly creamy feel but dry down to a powdery finish. Texture is really quite nice! My only hope is that the formula won’t dry out in the compact eventually as it’s not sealed 100% and these do feel like creams.

Loud and Clear Lipglass

MAC Loud and Clear Lipglass

I am in love with all of the Loud and Clear Lipglass colors ($18.50 each) – some of the colors are a bit light for my pigmented lips but they layer so well with lipsticks or a liner.

  • Deco A-G0-Go is a pale milky beige, best when layered with a lipstick to soften the color
  • Female Gaze is the prettiest sheer shimmery beige
  • Heart Heist is a pale milky blue-based pink
  • Painted Lady is a perfect light peach
  • Voyeur Is Me is a 90s like pink brown cream

Loud and Clear Lipsticks

MAC Loud and Clear Lipstick Haul

By the time I ordered the Loud and Clear lipsticks a lot of the colors were sold out. Colors I picked are all full coverage, creamy, smooth and last long on the lips:

  • Sugar Sweet Cameo is a pale peach, this is a bit light for my skin, I pair it with a slightly deeper liner and blend with Stripdown, Whirl or Boldy Bare
  • Fleur D’Coral is a bold coral pink
  • Yash is a repromote and part of the regular lineup, this is one of my favorite nudes
  • Baroque the Internet is the prettiest rose pink matte

Loud and Clear Eyeshadows

MAC Loud and Clear Eyeshadows Omega and Bougie Babe

Most of the Loud and Clear Eyeshadows looked like mattes and they seemed similar to existing colors. I picked two to try and I found these to be disappointing in texture. They feel ultra dry and aren’t the easiest to blend. They’re more pack on and pat kind of colors for me. I was able to use these to smoke out the eye and pigment is decent. I’m calling these a miss mainly because of the texture.

  • Omega is a repromote which is a matte grey
  • Bougie Babe is a matte brick red brown

Loud and Clear Extra Dimension Skinfinishes

MAC Loud and Clear Extra Dimension Skinfinishes

The best items in the collection for me are the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. These have a really pretty flattering undertone and the shimmer is just perfect! Finish is smooth, pigment is medium but buildable, shimmer isn’t too strong.

  • Post Modernist Peach is a shimmery champagne gold
  • Hot Damnoiselle D’Avignon is a shimmery peach gold

MAC loud and clear collection and glow play blush

Overall some really lovely easy to wear launches for spring! My top picks are the Glow Play Blushes in So Natural, That’s Peachy and Groovy alongside the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes in both colors! I think the lip colors can be easily duped although I do like how the lipsticks and lipglasses layer together in this collection.

You can find the MAC Glow Play Blushes and Loud and Clear Collection out now. I hauled my picks from Nordstrom and MAC.
