ALL THINGS MAC

I finally made it to my local MAC counter to check out the new Brunette Blonde Redhead collection and I'm sad to say it did not live up to all the hype! I was so psyched for this collection...

What I was most disappointed with were the eye shadows. Several of them were not very pigmented and the rest I could easily find dupes for. That being said there was only one eyeshadow from this collection that really caught my eye and I might even consider it to be a "must buy", which was Flip. It is a wonderful golden yellow color and although I have many yellows in my collection this is definitely a unique color. The rest of the shadows were okay but I will wait and purchase them later when they are at my local CCO. No sense in paying full price for a poor quality product when I can get it cheaper.

One other item that I did buy from this collection was a lipglass in Red Devil. I was really impressed with this color because it was so bold and bright that I just had to have it. I don't own very many "bright" lip products so I thought this would be a welcome change to the norm! The other lipglasses were nice but once again I found many dupes for these as well so I passed on the rest of them.

Another product from this collection that everyone is so excited about are the MSF. They are really nice and they have great color payoff but they are not for me... All that shimmer is just to much for my complexion and skin tone.

Now on to the best part of this collection, the BRUSHES!!! I L-O-V-E the brushes from this collection - they are AWESOME... so much so that I bought all three of them! In my opinion the brushes were the best part of this collection! I have found so many uses for them that I feel like it is money well spent for them. I really do enjoy them especially the 226 brush. I have plans of buying another one next week.

I have great hope that the MAC collections will get better as the year progresses but we shall see. Well that is all for now...
