Alexander McQueen for MAC

Alexander McQueen, a goddess in his own mind (and mine for that matter) brings to us a new MAC Collection.

Now you might be lemming this for several reasons such as the vibrant, eyepopping colors. The fact that’s it’s limited edition must also be tempting you and of course it has cute packaging details that also might put you in that “want” frame of mind.

But I think we can all be honest and admit that the reason we REALLY want the collection is for the coveted and long gone repromote of New Vegas Mineralize Skinfinish.

I can’t tell you how often I’ve searched on E-bay for a New Vegas and failed finding one that hadn’t hit the $60 or more mark upon auction end (Stereo Rose is another item I’ve failed miserably at locating for a price that didn’t include a contract for my first born child!)! The Muse sometimes has to give herself limits and purchasing a MSF for $60 or more dollars is one of her cut off points (however she has been known to sell an organ for parrot but that’s another story for another day)!

Well…girls…look no further New Vegas is back with a bang and we can all bow low to Alexander McQueen for it’s return!

Aside from the very exciting repromote of New Vegas I’d say we have quite a nice lot of goodies to look forward to with this collection and truly if you love awe inspiring shades this be the color story for you!

The colors look just perfect and not a doubt crosses my mine that they will be a nice little investment as well! These are bound to go up in price drastically after they are sold out so you can grab yourself a nice little piece of history here for it’s original, cheap price and next year you can laugh at all the n00bs who are searching their lemming out on E-bay and successfully finding ridiculously priced paint pots, MSF, and other yummie items from this color story! Although, the Muse highly recommends be nice and not laughing at the n00blets, after all, we were one ourselves at one time (as you can see the Muse has been playing far to much WoW and she’s reverted to leet speak! Do forgive her! She’ll be back to her beautified, non geeky self shortly. Well back to beautified not being geeky might not be possible!)!

The Muse says…GO YOU…GET TO THE STORE…and do purchase this collection! October 11th the Muse will bounce her way to her Nordie’s counter and give her monthly donation to the MAC counter so that she might have these wonderful, gorgeous goodies for her very own!

Happy Shopping!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I really like this collection!
    I’m going US but I’ll only be there around the 18th/19th Oct.
    Do you think they’ll be sold out by then? *cries*

    hi minou!

    adore it myself! 😉

    I’m not sure. This looks like it’s going to be quite a hit! That’s about a week after it’s release! I think it’s safe to say that it all will be intact around that time and plenty of shops to choose from if one happens to be out of stock!

    Such as Macy’s, Bloomies, Nordies, etc…

    I think the main item that is HOT would of course be the MSF!

    If you know where you are staying, maybe with friends? You can always order it online with free shipping on around the 9th or 10th (as it always pops up early online) and have it shipped to the location you are staying at 😉

    That would work out perfectly!

    let me know what you get!
