M.A.C. Shadescents, the heart of a lipstick in a bottle

Hello my lovely readers, today I’m back with a post that features some new launches from M.A.C., the M.A.C. Shadescents, 6 scents inspired from M.A.C.’s most iconic lipstick shades. There are scents for everyone, from the bold, seductive leather notes of Ruby Woo to the flirtatious fruits in Candy Yum Yum and the discrete notes of Crème d’Nude.



I have tried them all in the store so I can share with you my impressions and favorites. All M.A.C. Shadescents are Eau de Parfum and come in a 50ml/1.7 oz bottle. They are already available in all M.A.C. stores at the price of 210 ron (57 dollars). All the corresponding lipsticks cost 85 ron.

M.A.C. Ruby Woo is described as a woody floral due to its main note of Deep Red Leather. It is definitely a strong, bold scent that commands the attention everywhere you go the same as the lipstick. It is definitely a strong scent that works well for a night out in the club paired with its lipstick counterpart. It lasted on me for about 5 hours.



M.A.C. Lady Danger is described as a woody floriental given by its key note Golden Patchouli. It is also a bold scent but in a different way, its scent is more oriental, powerful and sexy. You will definitely stand in the crowd if you wear this perfume. It is indeed suitable for a sensual date night with your loved one. It lasted on me for about 5 hours.



M.A.C. My Heroine is described as a woody leather scent due to its main note of Cardovan Leather. It is a strong, unusual scent. It is definitely suitable for a lady with attitude and personality. It is a scent you can’t forget, you either like it or you don’t. It has a wild, untamed side to it that immediately draws attention to it and its wearer. It lasted on me for about 5 hours.



M.A.C. Velvet Teddy is described as an oriental amber due to its main note of wild honey. It is a milder scent but still strong and exotic due to the notes of musk and wild honey. It is a scent suitable for a special occasion or a night time event. It is definitely not forgettable and it lasted on me around 4 hours.



M.A.C. Candy Yum Yum is described as a fruity floral gourmand scent. It contains notes of exotic pink guava and it is fun, colorful and flirty as the lipstick. I looove it! It is less heavy and strong as the previous scents, it is fruity and fresh in a way, very suitable for the spring. Paired with the lipstick I would wear it every single day, it is so refreshing and fun! It lasted on me around 3-4 hours.

Its main note is velvet musk and it brings a discrete sexiness while keeping the scent clean and very wearable. This is my second favorite after Candy Yum Yum. It can be worn daily due to its pleasant, discrete sexy scent. It lasted on me around 3-4 hours.

Henson – limited edition. The Lipstick is a matte fuchsia with pearl shade. There is also a corresponding shimmery fuchsia Lipglass shade. I love both of them, the lipstick a little bit more.

I really like M.A.C.’s latest releases, if you found something that you liked, check them out in all M.A.C. stores. If you want to try some M.A.C. products there are available in mini sizes (mascaras, pigments, glosses, strobing creams, make-up removers), all starting from 43 ron. I think it’s a great idea to try a mini size product first to see if it suits you and if you like it you can buy the full sized one. Tell me Have you tried any of the M.A.C. Shadescents ? What are your impressions ? Until next time,  Love, M

  • parfumurile par foarte interesante, nu stiam ca au si asa ceva. inca nu am niciun produs de la ei

    • Monica Tone

      Mergi in magazin si increaca-le sunt pentru toate gusturile.

  • Nici eu nu stiam ca au parfumuri la MAC, intotdeauna m-am dus concentrata pe machiaje fara sa am o privire de ansamblu 🙂 Laudabila initiativa de a dona banii!

    • Monica Tone

      Da, parfumurile sunt nou aparute, imi plac ca respecta esenta si personalitatea fiecarui ruj.

  • Bianca

    Mă bucur să văd că se aleg campanii umanitare. E un exemplu ce ar trebui abordat de mai multe brand-uri mari. Superbe produsele, ca de fiecare dată.

    • Monica Tone

      Da, ar fi cazul ca toate brandurile mici sau mari sa se implice in campanii umanitare, lumea ar fi mult mai buna..

  • E super faina ideea si chiar sunt curioasa sa miros nude-urile alea. 🙂

    • Monica Tone

      Sunt cele mai purtabile nude-urile, restul sunt mai puternice.

  • Irina

    Sunt curioasa sa merg in magazin sa le miros pe toate.

  • Nicole

    Din pacate eu n-am incercat foarte multe produse M.A.C si acum aflu despre parfumuri. Folosesc un iluminator si anticearcan M.A.C de care sunt foarte multumita. Dar daca tot vine 8 martie, ce-ar fi sa-mi doresc unul dintre parfumurile nou aparute? 🙂 Candy Yum Yum cred ca ar fi pe gustul meu 🙂
