I waited for this collection impatiently for a few months. Needless to say, on the day of release I called my local MAC store at 10:00am sharp to put some items on hold, as I was in school that day. I am so so glad that I did, because the collection sold out almost completely within a few hours.
Sadly, for some unfortunate reason the collection was not available with the MAC pro discount. Due to my unfortunate university student budget, I had to restrain myself to only getting 3 items. (Really though, MAC. WHY?!? I would have purchased the entire collection if you had let us use our Pro discount!)
The 3 items that I decided I simply couldn’t live without were:
- “Sin” lipstick: while this is a permanent shade, I have been wanting to add this to my collection and I could not resist the limited edition packaging! Sin is a dark, cool-toned wine colour with a matte finish.
- “Frank-N-Furter” lipstick: This shade is limited edition. It’s an amplified, vivid, raspberry toned red.
- “3D Glitter”-this is a chunky, black glitter with a silver holographic effect that appears multi-colored in the light.
As much as I wanted the entire collection, these 3 items were must-haves for me! The lipsticks are such gorgeous colours and are perfect for fall/winter.
The 3D Black glitter is unlike anything I have in my collection, and I’m so excited to come up with different looks using it! A glitter like this works well over top of a powder/cream shadow, but I personally find they work the best if you dampen your brush/applicator with a mixing medium. I like to spray my brush with my Mac Fix + spray, and then dip the brush into the pigment/glitter. This picks up the most product and gives you a thicker, more pigmented application.
