What items do you love that nobody seems to talk about?
My #1 has got to be Fire Sign. It's one of the best MLBB colors MAC's put out the whole year (at least for someone like me, with very red lips to begin with). Sure, Venus is gorgeous, but it looks pink on me, not MLBB. If someone told me I could only use one lipstick for the rest of the year, I'd pick Fire Sign, because it can go from almost looking like you only swiped a touch of lip balm on, to a beautiful, evening-worthy, glamour color. If you have naturally red lips and especially if you're at the age where pink lips always look a bit "young" and "cute", rather than just natural.
#2 would have been Invincible Light, but fortunately it looks like people are starting to discover how great it is - in a year with a ton of neutral, glistening highlight colors, the only one that works better for me is Nebula pigment, and IL is better than Nebula right now, since I've gotten quite tanned this summer.
Instead #2 goes to Sky! Such a rich, bright color. It takes almost zero work to get it looking as nice as it does in the pan and it's very long lasting. I've gone out dancing with just a paint pot underneath and a little Fix+ on top and had no fading or streaking. Plus blue isn't always a good color for my green eyes/skin tone and yet every combination of the cobalt, turquoise and shimmer looks great on me. This happened last year with Semi-Precious, too - I usually can't wear dark green, but the dark green from that collection works great...one of the few that does. All I can guess is that the mineral pigments reflect light from your skin in a special way that helps make the colors more flattering for more people.
#3 is Galaxy Rose - it's so sexy. Definitely the sexiest lip color from this collection. I love it on its own or on top of Fire Sign, which creates this amazing, sultry strawberry color. Love it - I'm trying not to back it up, lol.
