MAC Haul & FOTD

Hey ladies.. as most of you already know the "Curiositease" collection and the "Of Beauty" collection came out in stores in the U.S today. Nothing really appealed to me from the Curiositease collection so I only got the eye liner set. I figured since I don't have much of a collection of MAC eyeliners, I'd get this one. I'll write a little review under each picture from what I know of it so far. At first I wanted to get the pigment/glitter collection but I passed on it because honestly, I don't really like to use pigments. I don't work well with pigments. I prefer using regular pressed eyeshadows instead. Not to say I don't ever use pigments, but rarely.



Here's my lil (big) haul.. if you know what I mean $! hehe



These eyeliner all have glitter in them so they sparkle! There's not much difference in this liner compared to the others except the color and glitter in them. My favorite one is 'goldenair'! It is such a pretty cream color.. this would go great on the lower lashline to help brighten the eye and make it appear larger.


Thise is a loose powder from the new collection called "Of Beauty" It's a pretty translucent cream/gold with shimmer. It's a beautiful highlighting color.



This is also from the "Of Beauty" collection. It is the 183 brush! I'd rate this a 4.5 star brush. It didn't make it to 5 stars because of it's price. This brush is $40. In a way it's well worth it though. I thought it'd just be like any other kabuki-like brush. But this little baby is bad ass. I used it with my studio fix powder and it gave me such smooth airbrush like coverage. I love it! I love it even more than my 187 & 188 brush. With this brush, a little bit of product goes a long way. It's put together a little different than other kabuki brushes. I can't explain it but the bristles are packaged together tighter but still soft. Maybe it's just me, but this brush works really well for me! Love it!


I saw this lipstick on a mua and I liked it. So I tried it, liked, and bought it. The lipliner doesn't go with the lipstick but I liked it, so I got it.
