I ended up purchasing two eyeliners, two pigments, and the two quads. I left the lippies, nail varnish, and blush, none struck me as must haves.
Overall it’s a great collection! I think I got the pick of the best items and the rest are pretty much leave ‘em, not need ‘em. The blushes weren’t anything to write home about, the nail varnish are nice but I tend to bite my nails so not too worth it for me, and the lipsticks just weren’t wowing me.
The quads are a must have and the best I’ve seen from MAC in quite a while. All the colors work well together in these which is rare since a majority of the quads I get from MAC have colors that seem to never work well for me and I end up scratching my head trying to firgure out what sort of eye look I could possibly create with the quad.
The two liners are also must haves in my humblest of humble opinions! Raven is a deep maroon color that really will look great with Lovestone and Cranberry! Orpheus is an equally gorgeous shade.
The pigments weren’t anything to get too excited about. Silver Fog is shown as Limited Edition shade but it’s a normal MAC Pro item. This is exciting if you happen to not have a MAC Pro in your general area but if you do have a Pro shop it’s just a snore. I picked this up as I never did bother getting it from my local Pro shop! It’s definately a very nice pigment! Smoke Signals is very bizarre not sure what to do with this little guy it’s a bit reddish, a bit brownish, and maybe even a tad bit purple thrown in! Not sure how this fits into the smoky eye look but count me as challenged, I aim to create a look with it. Dark Soul is a regular catalog item and not entirely worth the $20! Unless you’re a collector you can do away with purchasing such a large jar of black piggie! Just stick to a sample from E-bay or forums!
If you’re purchasing your lot in store be sure they give you one of the postcard booklets! It’s rare they give postcards out anymore so this is a nice item if you happen to collect MAC postcards! It includes all the looks featured in the video plus some face charts on the back! And it’s free! We like free stuff don’t we?
Overall a nice offering from this collection!
Do check out the MAC website to see a great video of Eartha Kitt glamming it up! It so fits with the theme of this collection!
