MAC Brooke Candy for Fall 2015

Published in: Collections, Lips, MAC Makeup, Video

Now, if you’re me, your first reaction to finding out about the new MAC Brooke Candy collection might have been, “Who the heck is Brooke Candy?” (I had to Google her.) I gotta hand it to MAC, because following their limited edition collaborations has been a good education in cutting-edge pop culture. My playlists are ever-expanding with new artists and performers.


I still have to listen to some of Brooke’s beats, but she seems kinda edgy…kinda raunchy, but raunchy can be hella entertaining sometimes (i.e. Lil’ Kim).

The new three-piece limited edition MAC Brooke Candy mini release arrives exclusively on the MAC website August 27, and since there are only three products, there’s not a lot to it — just two lipsticks and a liquid eye liner.

The lipsticks have an interesting formula called Amplified Cream, which is a little creamier and shinier than the regular Amplifieds, which I love, but the liquid eye liner, Boot Black, hmm… Of all the MAC liquid liner options, it’s my least favorite. Sucks that I can never get a crisp line with it, and it makes me feel like a 3-year-old trying to do liquid liner, or like liquid liner was put on this earth to torture me (“Liquid liner is your enemy, not your friend!”).

But I digress…


Let’s start the video! 🙂

    Which Witch has me intrigued… it a wearable shade or not????

  2. You’ve definitely got my attention with Mind control. It looks gorgeous!

  3. Lulle says:

    I really like the lipsticks, they both look bold and Which Witch is an interesting take on plummy black.

    I mean these is the nicest way but your voice is so much more high pitched than I imagined. Not high pitched in any bad way of course your voice is so pretty 🙂

    Thank you for doing this review I was hoping to see something on it before it came out because though I have no clue who Brooke Candy is I think Which Witch looked so interesting.

      Hi Tracey,

      I get this comment a lot! I guess people think that my voice sounds deep when they read my writing? What’s funny to me is that the voice that I hear in my head is completely different than the one I hear when I see myself in videos. Maybe I write with a deep voice, LOL! Anyway, Brooke Candy! If you do get Which Witch you’ll need a liner. It’s very creamy and needs something to stick to.

      Hope you had a nice Tuesday!

        Your voice calms me. I watch your YouTube videos and am immediately calm and happy. Me on the other hand…I sound like Lindsey Lohan!

    I saw this on Instagram and went “O.M.G. I WANT.” Haha now, however, that I have calmed down and watched your video, I think I can keep myself from spending. It’s a shame that the tube doesn’t match the box, otherwise I think more people would be all over that shiz — it is some seriously cool packaging.

    Loved the little tail cameo from Sir Tabsalot! I thought the sound of him on his scratch post was actually him trying to tap your keyboard!

    I’ve never heard of Brooke Candy. I like the design on box. I wish the same design were on the lipstick tubes. The shades are nice, but not unique. I think I’ll pass.

  8. Charisma says:

    Which Witch is stunning on you Karen! I love the shade but I’m just not a fan of Amplifieds 🙁

    I’ve never heard of her either! And I’m shocked this is the first MAC LE collection that I have to pass on. 🙁

  10. Kelly says:

    Which Witch is PERFECT for Halloween! It looks like it would be a little too dark for my complexion (ghostly pale), but I think I could make it work. 🙂

  11. Kim says:

    Which Witch looks awesome on you. I don’t think I could pull it off, even on Halloween, but you could wear it to TJ’s! It’s a really great color!

  12. Fancie says:

    I couldn’t tell you who the heck Brooke Candy is either but the promo pic is sick and Which Witch looks hella sexy on you! This collection completely slipped my radar but I may need that lipstick
