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
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??? ♥
