I am ALL about the first day of spring and all it brings. The warmer weather is just around the corner for most of us and the flowers will be blooming soon. We made it through another winter…YES!
MAC’s newest collection has us swept up into all things spring as it celebrates the cherry blossom. With rosy hues and pearlescent accents, the tones are right on time and on trend for spring.
I am a pink girl through and through, so as soon as MAC Boom, Boom, Bloom was teased, this one was calling my name. This collection does not disappoint.
From the Cherry Blossom Prep+Prime Fix+ in a fresh cherry blossom scent to the prettiest X9 Eye Shadow Palette and High-Light Powder in a light pastel pink that had me wanting more, there are more than a few must-haves from Boom, Boom, Bloom. Take a look!
First thing is first. I am a sucker for pretty packing, and the white boxes with falling cherry blossom petals had me from the start. I will NOT be getting rid of the boxes and usually that is the first thing I recycle.

The first product that I opened was the Kabuki Doll Eye Shadow X9 palette and it’s a good one, for sure. I love that there is a variety of finishes includes for a multitude of looks. With frosts, mattes and even a few VLXP’s there is no shortage in it. It is a neutral palette with warm tones. It is well-pigmented. Definitely use a primer, especially if you want to get creative with the frost shades. I have been using my fingers to apply or a wet 239 eye shader brush.
Both of the High-Light Powders are beautiful; I love the actual design in the product, which makes them extra special for a limited edition. They are quite highlight-y, if you know what I mean. If you don’t want a full-on strobe look, go easy with your brush.
All things coral are doing it for me this year and pair it with my favorite pink like Hi-Fructease, and it’s a win. Wagasa Twirl unexpectedly won me over. I read the description of “dirty blue pink” but that is not too accurate in my opinion. It is more of a pretty, mid-tone pink with pearl; it’s a shade or two darker than my lips and just pretty.
For Lipglass, can’t go wrong with Pink-A-Boo, with is a light blue pink shade that it nice on its own. I want to pick up the shade For The Frill Of it, too.
