MAC Haul: Hayley Williams Collection

Greetings from the Dark Side!

MAC recently collaborated with Hayley Williams, singer of the band Paramore, to create a four-item collection. All the items are in the collection are orange (except for the MSF). I love orange lipsticks, eyeshadows, and nail polishes so I was really intrigued by this collection. I am not a fan of Paramore, but if you are this might be a really awesome collection for you!

1. Sounds Like Noise Lipstick ($15)
This was the item I wanted the most out of this collection. I own plenty of orange lipsticks, but I have been looking for a true orange lipstick that does not have any red or pink undertones. This definitely is ORANGE. It does not have any red undertones, yay! It is also has a matte formula, which I actually do not like because it makes the lipstick dry. I wish the formula would have been more like the matte formula of the MAC 'Ronnie Red' (Ronnie Red has an amazing matte formula). I do really love the color though, so I will deal with the dryness by making sure my lips are exfoliated and moisturized.


Here are some swatched with colors I thought would be similar. Wet n Wild's Carrot Gold lipstick seems to be the closest. I just threw in MAC Betty Bright as a comparison because that one is a pinky coral and yet compared to the rest it is really pink.

2. Daydreaming Eyeshadow ($15) 
This is the other product I really wanted because I don't have very many orange eyeshadows. I was surprised to see that this is not as orange as I thought it would be. It is a soft coral with a strong pink duo-chrome. It is actually more wearable than other oranges because it has such a strong pink tone. The eyeshadow is really nicely pigmented and blends out amazingly. I really like this, and it looks amazing worn alone on the eyes!
 Here is what it looks like on my lids. I wore it alone without primer, with liquid liner and mascara.

Here how both items look on me. The Sounds Like Noise Lipstick looks really washed out, but it is much brighter and more orange in person.


That was all I bought from the collection. If I could recommend one thing, it would be the eyeshadow. I like the lipstick but it is really drying on my lips. But maybe you would all have better luck with it!

  1. Love love love both items you got here! The eyeshadow is really pretty. :D Even though I'm not a fan of orange, I have to admit that the lipstick colour really does remind me of Hayley Williams' hair. XD

    1. I think orange eyeshadows are just so different! You don't see them often.

  3. very pretty color! i recently got into oranges and bought the maybelline vivid l/s in electric orange which is pretty orange compared to most of the other colors I have, once I get a little more adventurous with my lipsticks I might grab this one. But man that WnW color is super gorgeous too!!

    1. Awesome! I like both colors a lot, although I think Carrot Gold has a better formula. I really love Lime Crime MBR. It is such a pretty orange :D Definitely one of my favorite LC lipsticks next to Airborne Unicorn and Geradium.

  10. Wow the eyeshadow looks so pretty on you Nancy! I didn't think it would be as wearable as it is. I used to love Paramore, but now I'm not really into them, I'll still be checking out the eyeshadow though :)

  16. If you want a bright TRUE orange lip color, Sounds like Noise is it but I don’t think this collection is entirely for me
