There are 5 lipstick shades in the collection and whilst I was tempted to order them all, I ended up going for 'Pleasure seeker' which the Mac website describes as a 'creamy peach', and 'Cut a Caper' which is described as a 'midtone peachy pink'. I admit, both do sound quite similar but I am literally a woman on a mission when it comes to finding the perfect peach lipstick so I just couldn't risk missing out.
(L-R Pleasureseeker, Cut a Caper)
1) Pleasureseeker - When I first opened 'Pleasureseeker' I really thought it was going to be the one. It's a very orangey-peach and is the first glaze formula I've ever purchased from Mac. I really, really thought I was going to love this however when I applied it to the lips I found it to be a little frosty which I'm not a fan of and it wasn't as flattering as other peach tones I've tried such as Revlon 'Smoked Peach'. I also found it to cling a little to dry patches and with it being so sheer I found the colour to be a little uneven. All that being said, I think I will be taking this on holiday with me as I imagine with a tan this would be a much more flattering shade and it is nice and light and glossy.

2) Cut a Caper - As soon as I saw this had been re-promoted I knew I had to get my hands on this lipstick. It's one of those infamous Mac shades you hear so much about and I couldn't wait to rip opening the packaging and see what all the fuss was about. When I opened the packaging though I found myself feeling a little deflated as it reminded me of so many other shades I already own; 'Costa Chic', 'Watch Me Simmer' and 'Force of Love' to name a few. I didn't really get what all the fuss was about but when I applied it to the lips it was a whole different story. It is the most perfect daytime peachy/coral, it is NOTHING like anything else in my collection and the lustre finish makes it so easy to apply. I cannot recommened this lipstick enough, it is already sold out on the Mac website so I urge you to get your hands on this before it's too late!

So I guess the moral of this story is 'Never judge a book by its cover'. I love, love, LOVE 'Cut a Caper' and this deffo would have made it into my 'Top 5 Mac Lipsticks' post. There's a couple of other bits from the collection I might try and get my hands on, especially the Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Light Year'.
Have you bought anything from the 'Heavenly Creatures' collection?
