Mac Make-up Art Collection

I somehow got an invite to a preview event for the Mac Make-Up Art Collection and almost threw out the invite because it just looked like a bunch of postcards, then I actually opened the whole thing out and notice there was text on the back of one, duh.

I brought along Lynnie as my +1 haha. I ran over right after work, got my jamba juice and started the line. Bad thing about being first in line-everyone asks you what's going on and why people are lining up in front of the store. I need to practice pretending to not speak english. As soon as the doors open me and Lynnie ran in and had a good 5 mins to ourselves before the rest of the crowded filtered in. I slap stuff all over my hand but I was a bad blogger and didn't bring my camera. There was finger food going around but the one I tried was pretty bad so I don't think we missed much. There were also some artistes (?) who would sketch your pic-I can get that done at any park in the city-why wait on line? We quickly decided what we wanted, paid and left. All within about 30 mins.

I didn't walk away with what I had thought I would leave with. I ended up with the technakohl liner in artistic license and obviously orange, pigments in push the edge and cocomotion and the notoriety quad. I thought I be all over the purple and green quad but they didn't grab me-maybe I didn't swatch them carefully enough. The lipsticks and lip glosses were pretty but I didn't purchase any since in the end, Mac lip products never make me completely happy. Loved the glitter reflects but I don't know if I really can use that much glitter, lol.

Notoriety Palette-skintone1(lustre), skintone2 (Frost), Notoriety (velvet) and Rich & Earthy (veluxe pearl). It's the same casing as a 4 shadow fill your own palette but I don't think you can pop these shadows out. I gave an attempt and they didn't budge.

Pigments -push the edge and cocomotion


My cashier was wearing one of the new eyeshadows and it was pretty on her so I'll have to go back and take another look at this collection to see if there's anything else worth picking up. And when I got home, there was another set of postcards inviting me to a MAC event at bloomingdales.

I really love the bottom two colors of the palette, but then again i'm a sucker for golden browns, or gold and browns :P
