MAC In the Groove Jazzed and Fashion Whim Swatches

Exciting title huh? I just wanted to swatch my recent lippie purchases from the MAC In the Groove collection.

Jazzed lipstick and Fashion Whim cremesheen glass

I'm surprisingly very happy with Jazzed lipstick. Usually bright orangey looking lipsticks look like orange poo on my lips, but this turned into a gorgeous bright coral pink on me. Many bloggers think Ever Hip looks like a more pink version of Jazzed but I can't wear Ever Hip, looks like orange poo on me. I'll post a FOTD wearing Jazzed pretty soon so you can see better pictures of it.

Unfortunately, I can't express the same love for Fashion Whim cremesheen glass. I got a few requests to swatch Fashion Whim by itself. As always I'm happy to oblige.
Fashion Whim looks like a pinker version of C-Thru lipglass. The disappointment lies in the fact that it settles into lip lines, even over lipstick. By itself it's a little milky looking (I'd never wear it by itself, too corpse looking). BTW cremesheen glasses are very slippery and much less sticky than MAC's lipglasses.

Fashion Whim, see how it settles into lines?

The reason I bought Fashion Whim is that I love it over Jazzed. However, I hate how it settles into my lip lines even over lipstick. Lame. I'm thinking of going back and swapping this for C-Thru instead. It would give the same effect. Fashion Whim mutes bright colors just like C-Thru.

Fashion Whim over Jazzed.

If you can get your hands on Jazzed, I definitely recommend getting it. Unfortunately, it sold out online pretty quick. I never would have even tried it had there not been buzz behind it. See, hype can be good for something!

Have you ever bought anything based on hype and actually been pleased? Let me know in the comments!

Disclosure: I bought these myself because I like stuff :)


  1. I love those swatches! You have very pretty lips. I bought Jazzed but I skipped Fashion Whim. Besides, I have C-Thru and I consider them pretty similar!

  2. Jazzed looks beautiful on you, i want it but dont live near a mac store :(
    The product i would never of got without the hype is urban decay primer potion and i love it.
    Let me know if you want to sell ever hip if you still have it lol xx

  3. Jazzed looks so dewy and fresh!:D I love C-Thru, works well with a lot of other shades.:D

  5. Catanya- thanks! Good move on skipping on FW.

    Nicoletta- I never knew UDPP existed until a Sephora assoc slapped it on my eyeball. It was love at first use. I don't own Ever Hip :(

    Marie- i love that it's all glossy without being a lustre :)

    Kim Porter- great haul!

  6. thank you for the swatches!! jazzed looks really good on youu :D i tried it out at the store and it was too dark for me, probably what youd call "orange poo" hahaha. but glad it worked for you! it does look really good especially with the lipglass over top :)

  7. Jazzed is really pretty on you. I'm so sad it was sold out by the time I got to the counters. I've found consolation in YSL Tender Peach =)
