MAC Rhapsody in Two, Two Virtues & Thoughts on Spring Colour Forecast & Too Fabulous Collections! ♥

Hi everyone! I went to MAC yesterday to check out the new collections, and I was really surprised I didn't really fancy much from all the collections that were out at all! Money saved I guess. I only picked up Rhapsody in Two and Two Virtues mineralized blush duos from the Too Fabulous collection. Keep reading for my 2 pennies on Spring Colour Forecast and Too Fabulous! xx

Too Fabulous

I only got Rhapsody in Two and Two Virtues blushes. They're both so pretty! I just love shimmery cheeks. I also specifically asked for the Rhapsody in Two blush with the most pink and Two Virtues with the most purple in it lol. Good thing I was at Harrods so the MA was nice and amused with it, whereas if I went to Selfidges the MA would probably have given me the cold shoulder.

I expected to get Naked lip pencil, but when I swatched it on my lips it just looked so pale/cool toned on me that it just looked wrong Jealous of the girls that could rock that one!

I also checked out the cremesheen glosses, I thought Loud and Lovely was really pretty. They're permanent though and pricey, and I have many lipglosses anyway so I didn't have the impulse to buy it there and then!

Spring Colour Forecast

From Spring colour forecast, I expected to get Hot Hot Hot eyeshadow, but when I swatched it, although it was pretty, it dawned on me that I already had too many eyeshadows and since its quite a loud colour, I probably wouldn't be able to wear it much! The rest of the eyeshadows looked meh and boring to me.

The eyeshadow quads were both pretty, but I already had similar colours to the neutral one (except for Creole Beauty that was pretty!) and I had some difficulty swatching the highlight colour for the purple one! Like it wouldn't even transfer to my finger. So odd :S And I don't like the new quad packaging! I wish MAC would return to the old one. I think I feel that way coz the OCD part of me doesn't want the change, and that I think it might be quite difficult to depot the eyeshadows.

For lipsticks, I liked Bubblegum. A wearable lavender-pink IMO. I wanted to get it, but I didn't bring my B2M stuff so I didn't take it. Maybe next time. I didn't check out any of the lipglosses... I'm on a lipgloss ban now I guess!

I didn't check out the blush ombres since I thought they were way expensive, and I already have enough cheek stuff! I just bought the cremeblends from Lillyland last month too, and I really wanted the 2 MBs I got. So blush ombres were skipped. =)

I felt quite sad about not seeing the new Viva Glams though. I really expected to see them! I really wanted to get my hands on Viva Glam Gaga. Haai. I guess money saved for this month xx

Now for pictures, swatches and comparison swatches of my two new blushes: Rhapsody in Two and Two Virtues!! ♥♥♥

Rhapsody in Two blush, By Candelight MSF, Moon River blush

The three are pretty similar, although compared to Rhapsody in Two, By Candlelight is a little more on the gold/yellow side, and Moon River is cooler toned and more pink ♥

I also already have Boy Bait cremesheen glass from the Magic, Mirth and Mischief collection. That lipgloss is such a pretty nude. It makes my lips look so juicy!! Check out Boy Bait photos and lip swatches! ♥

I hope this post helps someone!! xx

What were your must haves from these collections??? ♥


  1. Nice review and swatches! I think I'll be skipping on the MB's, maybe I'll pick up a liner or two. From Colour Forecast I want to get a couple of things, but I want to see everything in person first!

  2. @Marce- Thanks Marce! The liners are definitely must-haves for the right skintones! I thought I wasn't getting these blushes until I swatched them and fell in love with their prettiness! ♥

  3. those blushes look beautifuL! and i know what yu mean about the viva glam, i want to get my hands on it now as well,bub i think it's all sold out here :) all well, it's money saved :D

  4. @xbbkay- Yeah, the blushes are really gorgeous! And yup, money saved :) Your counter should re-stock soon too since its meant to be available for a whole year! xx

  5. O my goodness.. the colours are so beautiful, sadly tis gunna be a while before i can afford to go to mac again :( http://thecreepyprincess.blogspot.com/ xx

  6. I just blogged about the new collection! I had to get cremesheens ;) They are my absolute favorite. I actually got fashion scoop and also richer, lusher. I might go back for loud and lovely next week, when the liberty of london collection debuts! Yes, I have a problem. But I really don't own that many lipglosses. That's how I justify it

  7. @laura ☮ ♥- Aww.. I'm sure MAC will come up with pretty collection soon when you'll have money to spend xx

    @Beautygirl24- :) What a coincidence! And you're right, cremesheen lipglasses are lovely. I love my boy bait! It's the only cremesheen I own so far. But I on the other hand have a lot of lipglosses (IMO) so that's how I justify not buying any more lol. Though that doesnt work for lipsticks and blushes! :P

  8. I thought of getting Rhapsody in Two but I'm afraid that it might be too shimmery for my liking. =/
    I'm more confused now because the blush looks so pretty! Lol

  9. Nice haul! I only got Two Virtues online and cannot wait to get it! And also, the blush ombres are amazing! I bought all four of them!

  10. Those swatches are gorgeous!


  11. Woo...they are so pretty! I wonder how they will look like on one's face? I have never bought a blush with 2 colours in it before...I am kinda scared that the end colour might come out weird on my cheeks!

    I went to check out my local MAC counter to see if they have any creme blushes and they are still stuck on the "All races" collection! Boo!

  12. Oh,your blog is very nice .I really like it ^^!
