Talk about late right? But I guess what they say is true better late then never!
I’m sorry for my rather delayed McQueen impression but other items took president and I never got around to reviewing McQueen!
But have no fear! I’m here now!
So…..McQueen………….sadly I have to say it’s nothing to get too excited about!
Aside from New Vegas a majority of the collection didn’t excite me! The glosses and lipsticks were a big no for me as most of the colors are nude and I just can’t pull off the mod look of nude lipstick! Sorry MAC!
The paint pots are virtually the same colors as the shadows so I skipped those as well sadly! I’m not a big fan of the paint pots anywhere so passing these by wasn’t too big a chore!
The eyeliners were gorgeous but I have just a bit too many liners at the moment so again I passed on those!
So what did I get?
I got the eyeshadows but I’m not particularly wow’ed by them! The colors are brilliant and quite gorgeous but they are very matte and I’m not a huge fan of matte! I did purchase these because I had in mind that the shadows would make a good base for a pigment color so that’s one use for them! Can you skip these? Yes I believe you can. A majority of the collection is still in stores (New Vegas is sold out at most counters and freestanding stores) so you can definately wander over and decide if these are for you but personally aside from the great packaging (which sells these) the shadows aren’t something you absolutely need unless you’re a big lover of mattes or a big collector of MAC.
New Vegas is most definately the gem in this collection as I had previously discussed! Now you’re going to get a few people and MA’s telling you that New Vegas is similar to all sorts of MSF. Shimpagne, Global Glow, Etc… But that’s just no the case at all. New Vegas is an utterly and completely unique color for me. It’s a very light gold and quite beautiful. How it’ll look on my skin remains to be determined as I haven’t yet tried it but it’s quite a gorgeous shimmering gold affair that I’m loving. Out of all the golds that have been released this is probably the truest light golden color of them all. Most are bronze or tannish with hints of gold but this is a true gold color that I’m just loving so if you can still locate one do drop it in your cart for a purchase!
Overall, as I said, the collection isn’t all that fantastic! I personally did without a majority of it (a first for me as I’m MAC mad).
Did you get any of the collection?
