MAC Holiday Collection Haul, Photos & Swatches

What I wore to go buy these: Mint dress, black leather jacket, black tights, black shoes, mint bow bag, mint nail polish.
What I bought: All mint-cum-black packaging [I got the pink kit a few days later, like a sensible woman.]
SA (Sales Assistant): "So, you like green, huh?"
Me: "I guess so. Look at me!"

Later at the cash counter:
SA: "I'll give you a green shopping bag." (the silk bag with zig-zag print & bow detail.)
Me: "Oh, thanks! Err...actually, I wouldn't mind the pink one, since everything else I got is green."
SA: "Oh, alright!" *took out pink bag and put it in the MAC bag* [Wrong choice! My head screamed at me.]
Me: "Umm, sorry to trouble you, but now I want the green one."
SA: "Okay, no problem! *LOL*",  then she said to another SA: "She likes green!", and they both laughed. 
Such nice & friendly makeup store SA's here! 
What I picked up:
  • MAC Perfectly Plush Brush Kit Essential
  • MAC Fabulousness Eye Kit Neutral Eyes 
  • MAC All For Glamour Touch Up Kit Medium Dark 
MAC All For Glamour Touch Up Kit Medium Dark ~ Modern, high-luxe compact for lips and face. Includes Blot Powder/Pressed in Medium Dark (Net Wt 5g) to reduce shine and Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again, which delivers intense colour with the gleam of a Lipglass.
Price ~  £30.00 (Rs.2625)
Blot Powder Medium Dark,  Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick (Natural light)
Blot Powder Medium Dark, Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick (With flash)

MAC Fabulousness Eye Kit Neutral Eyes ~ I cancelled this palette from my wishlist because it got some very bad reviews & ratings. But when I swatched the eyeshadows at the store, they didn't disappoint me. I was so happy because I really wanted this pretty mint packaging. I will do a look sometime to show you the eyeshadows. The only eyeshadow that is kind of chalky is Blonde Mink (the 1st color). The others are all very wearable. I just think they should have put a black eyeshadow instead of 2 browns.
Price ~  £32.00 (Rs.2800)

With flash
Natural light
Swatches: Blonde Mink, Magical Mist, Brun, Enviable, Smut

MAC Perfectly Plush Brush Kit Essential: These are my very first MAC brushes. I really to get them because 1 brush cost around Rs.2500, and this set of 5 brushes seemed to be a really good deal. Plus, the pouch is so cute & versatile! If you're wondering if the mint will bleed out when washing them, I read that it doesn't. I haven't washed them yet. I have used them, and they're nice. I really like 226 tapered blending brush & 275 angled brush. The foundation brush 190, though very soft, couldn't blend my foundation smoothly, I needed another buffing brush to smooth out the streaks. I think I'll just use it for BB Creams & Primers now. 
Price ~  £39.50 (Rs.3457)
  • 129 Powder/Blush Brush
  • 190 Foundation Brush
  • 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush
  • 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush
  • 266 Small Angle Brush

The bow sizes are different.

If you want suggestions on other products from Glamour Daze Collection, I really really liked:
  • Glamour Daze Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in 'Stolen Moment'. It's so purrrrty.
  • Glamour Daze Fluidline in 'Catch My Eye' & 'Little Black Bow'. They are gel liners with glitter, super gorgeous!
  • Guilty Passions Pigment or Lip Gloss Sets. The mini hat boxes are too cute!

This is one of the things I'll miss when I go back to India- getting my hands on MAC Collections as soon as they launch! =)

What are you drooling over?

  4. I can't make up my mind what I want. You know the Touch Up kit, does the space for the lipstick fit other lipsticks in? Just trying to work out its practicality!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
