    MAC - Adoring Carmine (Holiday Lip and Brush Bags) Swatches- Oct 08

    Place all your Adoring Carmine swatches and product photographs in this thread - please ensure that your images are clear, in focus and as colour-accurate as possible! For the sake of clarity, I ask that official product images and swatches (those that you would find on a mailer postcard, sourced from MAC or posted on the official MAC website) are not posted in this thread.

    Please remember that Specktra has a posting guideline that all posted images be no wider than 640 pixels or higher than 800 pixels - if your image is any larger than that, please make a text link to the image instead.

    Hi all! I finally got my Adoring Carmine Rose Lip Bag and I wanted to share some swatches. These lipsticks are gorgeous and I am so happy with all three colors. All swatches are done on NW15 skin without any lipliner or lip base. All pictures taken with the flash. Enjoy!

    To Swoom For Lipstick (Glaze)


    Delicate Crush Lipglass

    Thanks for looking!
