Having a MAC Collection coming out right in the middle of my makeup diet sux like you wouldn’t believe! Sighhh, but I guess it doesn’t hurt to look right? I called my local Nordie for the MAC counter and Ashley (the SA there) picked up and said I could come and take a look at the collection in the back of the room bc they’re not going to sell these until tomorrow. However, you can purchase the collection on MAC online and use free shipping code ROSE for any purchase amount.
I love the Silver Thorn color bc it’s very unique. It’s silver e/s but has a tinge of blue in it which makes it such a pretty color – unlike any of the permanent collection for sure. Et Tu Bouquet I just like bc of the name and it’s a pretty light pink e/s.
Beauty Powder – $22.00: Blush of Youth, Summer Rose*
I want this just for the unique rose imprint. It’s gorgeous! I did swatch both powder and the Summer Rose shows up a lot more than Blush of Youth. Also bear in mind that the beauty powder is a lot bigger than your normal MAC blush so depotting it to place in your palette will not go over too well. (Yes I’ve thought of it. =P) I have one more blush to place in my palette and this would’ve looked so pretty as one of them. Ah well.
Gel Blush:$18.50 – Just a Pinch
Not sure I want this just yet but Ashley mentioned that it’s the first ever MAC has ever done and this will be the item to get. It’s pretty but I’m never much of a gel blush type gal.
Lipsticks $14.00: Odyssey, A Rose Romance, Way to Love*
Odyssey swatch was a bubble gum pink to me but more rosey and Way to Love is a pale pink color.
I only did swatches of the lipsticks (top row): A Rose Romance,Way to Love, Odyssey and lipglasses (bottom row): Virgin Kiss, Steal My Heart and Magnetique. I didn’t do any swatches of the See-Thru lip colors, bc I wasn’t really interested in them as much after watching Pursebuzz video on it.
See thru Lip Colour:$14.00 – Loving touch, Secret Crush, Tender Tryst
Fix + Rose: $17.00
This is the aqua-spritz that’s jam-packed full of vitamins and minerals, infused with a Calm-the-Skin blend of green tea, Chamomile, Cucumber, topped off with the scent of 100% natural rose water. I have the regular Fix+, but I’m a sucker for anything rose scented. I barely finish my first bottle but this rose scented one is really tempting me. So you can imagine that this collection is just calling (no, screaming) out my name. =P
