MAC: Naturally Collection - FOTD & Haul / Shop Spree

MAC Naturally collection arrived at MAC counters in the US on January 5th, and is still available at your local MAC counter and on the MAC website.

I first saw promo pics of this collection back in December and I knew right away that I wanted the Subtle Breeze blush. From the promo pics the blush looked really pigmented and it seemed well suited for those of us who have pinkier skin tones. It was definitely a beautiful bright pink color and in my book, a definite "MUST HAVE" item for your blush collection. Now I wasn't to crazy about the mineralized eyeshadows because the majority of them looked as though they contained a fair amount of chunky glitter; which I hate with a passion. However, when I checked them out at my local MAC counter, I found one mineralized eyeshadow, Daylight, to be the exception. It didn't contain big chunks of glitter, and the presence of the slight veining was so miniscule that it was practically nonexistent. Also, when I swatched it, I immediately fell in love with the slightly purple, almost lavender color of the mineralized eyeshadow. Then there were the two mineralized skinfinish products, one of which I had missed out on previously, which both were re-promotes from a previous MAC collection. So I bought the Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish.

Anyway, one thing I have learned when it comes to the release of new MAC collections, is that its best to purchase your "MUST HAVE" items or the more popular products, on the day of the launch. Otherwise you risk missing out on getting them.

I believe there are two brushes that are available with this collection as well. Just go to the MAC Cosmetics website, to check everything out.

Here is a look I created using Daylight for the eyeshadow, Redhead as a highlight, and for the blush I used Subtle Breeze.
