As you may know I havent really purchased much make up in a while, theres the odd bit here and there but no collection or new release has actually got me excited. I was pretty late in hearing about the MAC Mickey Contractor collection, when I did however I was really attracted to the promo pictures. I love the fact the women are olive skin, glowing and gorgeous. As you all know I am all for heavy eye makeup and beautifully bronzed skin and this is what this collection screamed out to me. Although my hopes were high not much was purchased, just a blusher and a lipstick. Let down? Slightly although this wasn't particularly a large collection I still thought I'd be wanting to buy more than what I did and well to be honest I didn't..maybe another lipstick but really that's all. Think I will be saving my makeup allowance on the peacocky collection! Eek!!
So I picked up the blush in 'Sur' I love the depth of this colour and don't think I have anything similar to this. It's a berry/plum toned blusher which is predominantly matte but has a tiny amount of a subtle shimmer to it. Swatched it looks more rosey but it is a very pigmented blush. This colour isn't for everyone, I think it is well suited to olive/darker skin tone. Its gorgeous, I can't wait to wear this!
The lipstick I got was Yash your typical nude/beige matte lipstick. Did I need it? Probably not..but yes I wanted it. I have since tried this on my lips and it is one of those lipsticks that I will have to team with a rosey lip liner and a bit of a pinky gloss, as it appears more beige than pink on the lips. This is a matte lipstick and I like that because you can play around with it.
I will feature these two in a face of the day soon! Have you purchased anything in the new collections? I thought 'Champale' was a let down! What new make up bits have you bought?
Lots of Love
