MAC is currently debuting this collection on their website and I'm kinda excited about it. I don't know if it is because of the flower pattern on the products or because of the actual products. Either way if you have seen any of my YouTube videos then you know I have a secret obsession with collecting eyeshadows - specifically MAC eyeshadows!

So I knew as soon as I saw this collection that I was going to pick up the majority of the eyeshadows. However what was most disappointing for me was finding out that three of the six eyeshadows that are available are from MAC's permanent line. So what is up with that? I know, I know, it will save me money but it would be nice to see some unique colors instead of this hodgepodge of re-promotes and permanent products being repackaged as new. I truly hate all these small collections because there are so many and often times some really great products that are overlooked due to the avalanche of products that are assaulting the senses...whew!

Don't forget to check out my haul pics at the bottom of the post and any product reviews that I may have listed too!

Bloom brightly with a stylish fusion of the floral and the fashionable in the summer color collection that evoke the cool side of the hottest season. Fashion Flower girls are free to be, each one with cultivated connection to the green house and the fashion house. Unfolding and flourishing these perennial prima donna embrace the growing trend of cheeks and eyes lightly dusted with daisy embossed beauty powder and shadows.

Their confidence steams from petal-light lashes that sprout dramatically with studio fix bold-black lashes dew lips that sparkle sweetly in Budding Beauty Lipgelee and Summer Shower, a softly sheer aqua blue lipstick. Ever him join these rare blossoms and succumb horticulturally to bouquet that’s equal parts of fleur and couture.

It was my intention to post this last week but work commitments have been leaving me stretched pretty thin here lately. So I apologize for the lateness of this post. Anywhoo...

If you've checked out the MAC website recently and taken a gander at this collection then you know that the majority of the lipsticks have sold out and Groundcover eyeshadow has sold out as well. Which isn't surprising given that the lipsticks in this collection seem to be pretty wearable colors for a variety of skin tones. Even though I detest wearing lipstick I had considered purchasing Ever Hip but it was a little to orange for my pinkish skin tone. However, what was most surprising to me was the fact that Groundcover eyeshadow sold out so quickly. I love this color and I actually bought this eyeshadow but I have since considered returning it. When I was trying to apply the shadow to my lids it was really chalky and I couldn't get the color to show up very well. But it is a gorgeous color! So I'm still on the fence about it.

Out of the whole collection I only bought two of the eyeshadows: Groundcover and Fresh Daisy. Let me know what you like most about this collection.
