For a non-Macaholic, I sure do buy a lot of MAC.
What is it? Is it the buzz they create before releasing a collection? Are they just really in tune with us Make Up junkies? They hardly ever advertise compared to Lancome, Estee Lauder and other big companies (although I am aware they are part of EL).
Well whatever it is, I just did a big haul at Mac Mail order and should have enough make up to do some creative looks over the festive season.
I got 5 of the MAC Metal-X colours (Plum Electric was sold out from Day 1!) and the corresponding brush, 242 Shader Brush, with s synthetic head for cream bases:
There is Pure Ore, Ping Ingot, Goldspice, Metalblu and Sixth Sin.
Here is the brush close up:
It’s a good size, neither huge nor small, so I hope it can get into the inner corner of the eyes.
I also managed to get the Curiositease 5 pigment set in COOL & Emerald Green Pro Pigment:
The cool set comes with Helium (Ltd Ed), Naval Blue (pro Colour), Softwash Grey, Forest Green, Glitter, and here is a pic of Emerald Green:
I love green so I like it altho it reminds me a lot of Landscape Green mixed with a tad of shimmer from Kelly Green. Or am I hallucinating? It is 8am and I haven’t slept a wink so….onwards!
I got two lippies two and was in a shadestick mood:
I got MAC Pervette (Glaze) because I liked the name:
But it does look an awful lot like my other purchase ‘Snob’ but I suppose the texture is different? (it’s really not as easy to return stuff in the UK as it is in the US so I will most likely keep both):
My four new shadesticks…I particularly like Gracious me, a sugar coated pink!:
Of course, after seeing all the cool reviews, I had to stock up on the Loose Beauty Powders. When I called they were in stock unavailable (d’oh) – so I got two pro colours.
This one is the Ltd Edition one from OF BEAUTY – in Soft Flame, a reddy plum:
Ok then I got a bit confused with the photographs & colours! (I named two peach haze)..
Ok so this next one is DAISY DUST, a pale banana with gold (gorgeous):
THis one is DRIZZLE GOLD, a pale beige with gold (my least favourite):
This one is the real PEACH HAZE! Also lovely, a warm peach with gold:
Here are the swatches on my hand:
Now you can see a difference, right!?
