Here we go with my Collective Haul & Swatches!

I got a few things from the Mac Sumo Sale, Sephora, Cherry Culture Sale (NYX), CCO (USA) and Ebay. I have some great friends who hooked me up with some products from the US. LOVE YA!

Let's Begin!
Mac 15 Eyeshadow Palette (Empty)
Some pan eyeshadow additions to my collection!
Jest, Bronze, Print, Prussian, Poison Pen

This was from the CCO(USA).... It will be repromoted in Mac's Love That Look Collection in August. I'm glad it's back since it's seen as a "rare product"
Smoke & Diamonds Eyeshadow (Limited Edition)

Swatch Comparisons:
Sweet Sienna and Smoke & Diamonds seem pretty alike to me.

Mac Style Blush: A Gorgeous peachy gold shade! :D

Nars Luster Blush: This is a very pretty peachy bronzy gold shade. It's pretty cool that it doesn't really have any pink undertones. Perfect for the summer. A great addition to my Nars Blush Collection. :) Thanks for the rec's ladies!

Laura Geller: Golden Apricot Blush-n-Brighten

I bought this off Ebay and had it shipped to my friend in the U.S since it was free shipping to the US. =D I won this off Ebay and only paid $12 usd! YAY! Keep in mind this is just the smaller version which is like 5 gram. It's like the size of a Mac mineralize blush. The original size of this is like the size of a MSF. The bigger size is obviously more costly and should be around $29-30. This is a great buy if you don't want to pay too much for it and this will last you forever as well. Of course, it's better to get the smaller version. I don't think Sephora sells the smaller version seprately but they are actually found in Laura Geller giftsets.

This is another gorgeous coral peachy gold colour. I love it to bits and it's great for the summer as well. Even though it's marbelized like Mac MSF and does seem like to be a copycat version but it's NOT glittery like a msf and it has the pigmentation of a normal blush. It also has great staying power as I wore this for hours. It's AWESOME! I guess I should eventually review on this blush too. lol I'm also thinking of getting Laura Geller's Roseberry Blush as well. =)

I know...I have tons of blushes from the same colour family but I can't help it!
I'm a cheeky person and a total Blush WHORE! ;)

Poise Mattene Lipstick, Kirsch Mattene Lipstick

Poise Vs. 40s Pink

Dolly Pink Mega Shine Gloss, Pink Natural Gloss, Thalia Lipstick

I got this during the Cherry Culture Sale! My dear friend was ordering and so she ordered for me as well. =D This is my first time trying out NYX lip products. I'm very impressed and it's totally worth the price. WOW!

Nyx Thalia Lipstick Vs. Mac Brave Lipstick

NYX Lipsticks are very pigmented and are so creamy in texture! I would definitely order some more during another sale. I think these were around $1-2 usd.

Nyx Pinky Natural Gloss Vs. Mac Petite Indulgence Cremesheen Glass

So it is true....NYX Lipglosses can be duped for Mac Cremesheen Glass. I really love the colour Pink Natural...I wonder if Mac has similar lipgloss shades. It's just too pretty!

NYX Dolly Pink, Mac Magnetique, Mac Style Minx

Nyx Pinky Natural Gloss

Nyx Thalia Lipstick

Mac Queen Bee Lipglass
I know my lips are quite pigmented and I can't really wear this alone but it looks better and gorgeous on top of lipsticks like nude or peachy shades. =D

NYX Dolly Pink Mega Shine Gloss
