Small MAC Haul :)

Fact: A package from MAC can easily cure a bad, rainy day.
Here's just a small order from MAC I placed about a week ago.
This took a while to get to me, not sure why.
(By a while, I mean 8 days. Usually MAC takes 3-4 days to get to where I live)
These are just some basics, but still kinda fun!
P.S. I bought all of this with my own mulah, and have no affiliation with MAC.

Mineralize Skinfinish Natural:

I think this has to be my absolute favorite foundation out there (I call it a foundation because that is what I use it for). Something about mineralize skinfinish packaging I LOVE, haha. The design has a raised, dome shape, which gives you a ton more product, actually. coverage is great too, especially since this feels so lightweight. The only thing that may compare to this would be Studio Fix powder, which I haven't used in forever, so I don't remember much about it haha.
ALSO note that these run very light!
I am pale at the moment, and I wear the shade "Light Medium", which is NOT the lightest shade for once! LOL
Overall, no matter what condition your skin is in (rosecea, acne, etc) this powder over some concealer will make your skin look AMAZING.



I'm excited about this one :)
It's the beauty powder from Liberty of London, called "Summer Rose"
It is indeed a repromote from the MAC's Rose Romance collection (which happens to be one of my favorite collections)
The packaging is absolutley beautiful! I kind of wish I got more from this collection, particurally the lipsticks. But they were all sold out :/
The color looks kind of like a bright pink, but I assure you it goes on so beautifully natural. I think it will work on any skintone. I am fair, and when I apply this, it makes me look as if I'm actually blushing! Yayyyy :)
There is a slight sheen to this, which helps its blendability (is that a word?)

I really like the 2nd picture for some reason,p particurally the reflection in the mirror :)


"Wedge" Eyeshadow pan. This is the perfect matte, light brown for my skin tone. I highly reccomend everyone have a matte light brown in their palette. It works great for an everyday look as well as a transition color in any neutral-toned look you are wearing. It makes a huge difference.

Hope you enjoyed!

MAC Liberty of London Collection

So it's not too often where I get super excited about MAC collections
For example, when Hello Kitty came out, the whole world seemed to be going CRAZY
My reaction: Meh...

But I'm actually pretty psyched for this one :)
I think it's mainly the packaging that I love.
It's got the birds and everything :)
It's based off of WIlliam Morris' "Strawberry Thief" print form the 1800's. MAC wanted to put a spin on it, so an artist named Liberty revamped the original print while MAC did all the rest.
This is nice, because a lot of MAC's packaging for their specialty collections looks...dare I say... trashy?
Anyways...here are some amazing sneak peek photos/swatches from temptalia. To see the whole review, go to
www.temptalia.com and browse through the list of new MAC collections :)
Normally I would review them myself, but the collection hasn't been release yet.
It will be available March 11th, 2010

Nail Polish:

"Blue India" polish is a dark grey-blue color. As you can see, the packaging is adorable. This is only the second time MAC has ever put images on their polishes. The box is cute, too! Nail Laquers are $12.00 each.



The other is simply a white cream called "Vestral White" Not to interesting, but may be necessary if you don't already own a white polish.


Beauty Powders:

Amazingggggg Packaging!


"Summer Rose" Beauty Powder. This looks like it would work beautifully for us fairer skin tones, as well as medium tones. It's such a clean, cute pink that would leave a fresh wash of color.


"Shell Pearl" is a peachy-golden-coral with some shimmer. It seems like a beautiful highlighter. It seems like a lighter, highliher-version of NARS Orgasm blush. Maybe I'm wrong, I'm just judging by the picture.

Eyeshadows:


Bough Grey, Dame's Desire, Birds and Berries, Free to Be
Dame's Desire looks like violet pigment in eyeshadow form, and Birds and Berries looks like Deep Blue Green pigment in eyeshadow form.

Lipglass:


"English Accents" and "Frankly Fresh"
I'm surprised there are only two shades in this collection, but I guess that's a good thing, it cuts down on our spending. LOL.
If you are going to get one as a collector's iteam, I would chose English Accents. It's a beautiful pink!

Blush:


"Dirty Plum" is a pretty dramatic-looking dark purple with very stuble shimmer. It looks pretty, but a little to intense for my taste.


"Prim and Proper" Is a natural beige shade with champagne sheen.

Lipstick:


"Blooming Lovely", "Ever Hip", and "Petals and Peacocks". Blooming Lovely looks like a pretty lilac shade (my favorite kinds of colors", Ever Hip comes out as more of a nude, and Petals and Peacocks is an awesome bright pink.

So overall, I think I want English Accents lipglass, Petals and Peacocks lipstick, Blooming lovely lipstick, Summer Rose beauty powder, and Birds and berries eyeshadow. I'll probably get less, thoguh, since I'm broke, LOL.
Anyways, let me know what you like!

Peace.
