MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow Collection

Phew so sorry about bombarding you with the sale posts today but there were so many crazy deals I definitely wanted to share and save you some money! I got a majority of my Christmas shopping done online thanks to all the great deals that started popping up from Thursday up until today! Plus Macy’s Friends and Family is coming up shortly, this is a great one since it doesn’t have as many exclusions as Macy’s regular coupons do so most everything is on sale during the event. I’ll give you the heads up when it officially launches should you wish to indulge.

None of my Cyber Monday posts contained affiliate links, just wanted to get that out there since some people are curious if they are clicking a direct link to a site or a commissioned ones. Mine are all free from affiliate links and I’ll, of course, warn you if any posts I do contain any! The Tarte sale post does contain a tracker of sorts that basically shows where incoming traffic is coming from but this is NOT an affiliate link.

Do share your hauls and great deals with me. I scored some great boots and shoes from the Material Girl Collection for my sis. Hauled pretty hard at Lush, again, for my sis but sadly no Cyber Monday or Black Friday deals outside of their $10 Gift Card offer…boo! Loungefly had a super coupon last week so I ended up hauling alot of gifts from there for friends and my sis. As for me, I did a major Sasa haul as they had some great BOGO offers on facial masks. I grabbed up alot of other goodies from a variety of other shops, seriously the deals were crazy this year, more so than last year.

I feel rather terrible about the amount of online shopping I did as it doesn’t do any favors to poor retail shops and the people that work in ’em :( but it sure is awful convenient to just click and wait for it to arrive at your door step. No hassle!

Anyway… that Cyber Monday is drawing to a close it’s about time we start talking about makeup again! I think the upcoming MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow Collection is a great place to start!


Releasing December 26th this is one of MAC’s Boxing Day Collections that features nine, limited edition shades of Metal-X Cream Eyeshadow ($20).


  • Virgin Silver (White with silver pearl)
  • Fusion Gold (Light pinky beige with gold pearl)
  • Palladium (Metallic ash)
  • Cyber (Metallic silver with silver pearl)
  • Rusty (Dirty peach gold)
  • Red Hot Copper (Warm copper)
  • Venetian Tarnish (Golden tarnished bronze)
  • Vintage Coin (Metallic olive green)
  • Gold Carbon (Metallic taupe)

I’m having such a senior moment as I can’t recall ever trying, using, or reviewing Metal X Cream Eyeshadows….I have to Google myself BRB. But seriously, I can’t really remember using these even though I believe this is the third rendition of the product.

What about you?

Fan of these cream shadows?

Do share!

    He Muse, How was your thanksgiving/blackfriday/weekend lol? I have done soooo much shopping today and friday, it’s not even funny! And it still feels like I barely got half of my Xmas shopping done. I think I’m gonna just get everyone a lush gift and a gift card to a random store like Ulta, Starbucks, Macy’s, etc 😛

    I need a break lol someone toss me in a wheelbarrow push me to the nearest spa lol!


    • 11/28/11 16:09 the Muse:

      boy, omg, let me tell you the damage…lmao! I did some seriously major hauling for myself and for gifts. The deals are absurd ;-D I’m shopped out ;-D did you do it online or in store? I went out but the deals online were WAY sweeter ;-D lol can I come with you to the spa please? ;D! I’m exhausted!

      I had a great t-day weekend ;-D It went SO damn fast! how was yours?


      • 11/28/11 16:38 Cj:

        I have to admit, about half the stuff I bought was for me x_x I just couldn’t resist all the deals! I was out in the stores all Friday, it was INSANE lol, I might of done a little shopping online too Friday but I mostly did that today.

        I agree, after I finished cooking, everything was a blurr lol


        • 11/28/11 16:49 the Muse:

          lol me too! ;-D at least the online stuff ;-D not half but at least 25% hahaha! Shhh don’t tell anyone, we should like greedy little buggers ;-D stores here were WILD too! I actually got exhausted just waiting on lines ;-D! But at least half of my xmas shopping is nearly complete. I have to pick up a few odds and ends and I’m done now to wrap it all, I HATE wrapping with a passion!

          totally! and xmas is going to come and go just as fast!


          • 11/28/11 17:19 Cj:

            Ugh I despise wrapping, Last year I was able to con someone into doing it for me lol! Thankfully with lush gifts and gift cards you don’t need to wrap anything lol 😛

    Hi Ms. Muse, I know what you mean about the online shopping~ do you use ebates? That helps me halfway rationalize my habit :)


    • 11/29/11 9:27 the Muse:

      I don’t I really should though teresa…i hear great things about it!


      • 11/29/11 10:12 Cj:

        You really should Muse, it’s amazing! I just got my check for the quarter a couple days ago $67 :D!


        • 11/29/11 10:15 the Muse:

          SWEET! maybe I should ;-D I shop alot online!


  • 11/29/11 3:05 Jenn:

    Hey Muse! I didn’t even realize Macy’s did a friends and family? Does it include beauty stuff too?? Do you know are around when? Is it only online? haha, sorry for the swampage of questions. 😛

    I wish I had hauled more…I only ended up getting 4 of the Coastal Scents GO palettes which I’ve been wanting. I was going to use the Balm coupon to get the Nude Tude palette but it wouldn’t let me apply the coupon you mentioned for Black Friday. No idea what happened there, but it just wouldn’t work for me. *sighs*
    PS. I haven’t ever heard of MAC Metal X creams either….so we’re both having senior moments. ^_^


  • 11/29/11 11:13 telle:

    wow! YAY! Congrats on all the mega hauling! Canada is starring to follow suit a little but with ‘pink Friday’ and of course cyber Monday. Well BBW and VS offered black Friday specials. As for online ordering when it comes to anything I have usually previewed/played with whatever I’m store first so I know for sure that I want it, it looks good, wears well, etc. it’s nice to order online because theres no waiting or potentially rude and ignorant/pushy sales people…but I hate waiting nd if I haven’t seem the item in person beforehand it is always a gamble…

    Muse one of the reasons I love you is that you, like me, haul as much for yourself during the holidays as you do for others. :) I’m a giving person but I love to buy for myself too. :) Anyway the only thing I bought on Cyber Monday was non-makeup-related but a very special dress for my BFF! (It’s from Lily Allen’s Lucy in Disguise line!) On Black Friday though found some great deals at Macy’s and the like. Chanel No. 5 gift set for Mom, among other things! My home city doesn’t have a standalone Lush store (no wonder I moved, LOL!), but it does have a Lush counter inside Macy’s. I stopped by but the gift sets weren’t grabbing me–I’ve seen some others I liked more on the Lush website so will be hauling those soon. Sephora catalog came in the mail the other day too…uh oh!


    • 11/29/11 14:56 the Muse:

      girl I’m totes with ya ;-D I LOVE gifting so much but hells to the yes I gift myself hahaha! OMG very NICE gift ;-D that’s a gorgeous collection! hehe have fun in your shopping Bonnie and be sure to gift yourself a plenty ;D!
