Collective MAC Haul

I couldn’t help but get a few things from MAC’s Blogger’s Obsessions, Semi-Precious and MAC Me Over. I was quite impressed with MAC Me Over, even though I am not impressed with MAC Cosmetics overall.

What I got:

  • MAC Me Over: Carbonized eyeshadow, Take Root Cream Color Base and Dark Diversion (forgot to take a pic! I will do a separate post on this)
  • Semi-Precious: Lush Amber lipstick and Natural Flare Cremesheen.
  • Blogger’s Obsession: Jealousy Wakes and Sparkle, Neely Sparkle! eyeshadows, Sonoran Rain Lipglass and Evolution Revolution Lipglass (I swatched that in my giveaway post).

L-R: Take Root CCB, Carbonized e/s, SNS! e/s, Jealousy Wakes e/s

L-R: Lush Amber l/s, Sonoran Rain l/g, Natural Flare l/g

My general thoughts: I have tried several of these products and so far I like them! Lush Amber is a little paler than I’m used to, but when I layer Natural Flare on top of it, it works a lot better. Sonoran Rain is a perfect sheer red for tanned skin. I’m so glad I splurged on it.

I tried to talk myself out of getting Carbonized. I have so many shimmery dark browns already! But I could not think of or find a dupe for it. I have been loving brown/neutral EOTDs recently (you will see what I mean in the coming weeks).  😀

I initially bought SNS! for my giveaway (I put in 2 separate orders online), but I realized how pretty it was and decided that I could use it after all. So I got one for myself. Jealousy Wakes was bought out of loyalty to Christine Mielke, but I truly love the color of this emerald green shadow.

Take Root is my first CCB. I never bought one before because I never had use for one before. The dark brown color drew me in. I’m really in an “autumn mode” right now! I’m going to use this as a blush and as an eye base.

What have you guys hauled recently?
