Hauls with Some Swatches!

Mac Mega Rich Pigment (LE)
This pigment is from the Heritage Rouge Collection and I have been wanting this for a long time now after getting a sample. I called a few Mac locations and I found one that still had some left.

I am really digging orangey shades these days. After getting Mac's Firespot eyeshadow from a friend...then getting Juiced eyeshadow. I truly love this shade! It's an orangey copper with gold pearls. It's similar/dupe to Mac's Firespot eyeshadow but doesn't have red undertones. It's less orange than Off the Rader pigment. Such an intense gorgeous colour!

Nars Crazed Blush
It's shimmery raspberry with flecks of gold. It's similar to Nars Outlaw Blush but a bit more warmer. You don't have to own both but if you are a Nars blush collection (yes, I'm starting t00) then this would be a great addition to your collection. Since this shade is so pigmented you would need a skunk brush.
Nars Madly Blush
It's a beige peachy/light bronze shade with shimmer. It does look boring in the pan but it's very pretty when used like a bronzer. This is great for neutral looks and it's just an addition to my Nars blush collection. I wouldn't say that this as a must have. I would recommend Gina or Gilda for most neutral looks. (I'll be getting those later on)

Nars Albatross Highlighter
This is a pearly shimmery gold highlight with no chunky glitter. It's similar to Mac's Vanilla Pigment but less shimmery.

Mac Soft and Gentle MSF
This is a peachy beige shade and it gives a very pretty luminous glow. It's not glittery at all like other MSFs and it's permanent at the Mac stores too.

Nars Madly Blush, Nars Albatross Blush, Mac Vanilla Pigment

Cargo Rome Blush
I have been wanting this forever now. I finally got it! OMG! Why didn't I find I buy you earlier? lol It's a beautiful coral gold shade, very pigmented and it's very unique. It looks beautiful on people with tan/darker skintones. I totally recommend this. I love the packaging as well and it contains twice the amount than other Nars or Mac blushes do. This will last me a lifetime! I find this to be the most popular Cargo blush.

This is a comparision.
Nars Super Orgasm, Nars Orgasm, Cargo Rome, Nars Torrid
You can see that Orgasm is much more pink than Rome, while Torrid is a darker peachy coral. They all have pretty gold shimmer in it. Rome doesn't have chunky glitter like Orgasm does. Super Orgasm has SUPER chunky glitter and not liked by many. If you don't like Orgasm's gold glitter than Cargo would be a better choice.

Mac Ravishing Cremesheen Lipstick
This is a gorgeous coral colour! It's similar to Mac Missy Slimshine but with more solid colour.

Mac Pink Nouveau Satin Lipstick
This is a pretty blue based bubble gum - barbie pink shade. Since, it is satin finish it will feel a bit drying so it's best used on top of a lip balm. You can always tone it down with lipgloss on top or a lipliner. Another pretty addtion to my pink lippies!

Oh geez your life saver. I am going to get cargo's rome and have been wanting that one forever. I have gina and gilda and they are soooooo pretty. Have you tried taos? I really want that one. Its a gorgous color. I am totally becoming a NArs blush addict. I am going to by taos this week and the cargo rome. XD

I really love Ravishing lipstick and NARS Albatros Highlighter and Nars Madly blush seems similar with Nars Lovejoy Blush (that I love !) ... maybe lighter.

I love the swatches...

But I am strawberry blond (natural) with light skin and freckles... so I have no idea if the MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Ravishing would work on me... I am having the toughest time finding out!

If you have any opinions, please let me know. ;)
