Collective Mac & Sephora Haul {April 2010}

I finally went to the Mac store after a very long time. I initially was excited about the Art Supplies Collection but wasn't too impressed with the products. I wanted to get the lip stain markers but they didn't seem worth it at all. They all appeared quite sheer on my lips. The grease paint sticks were in many pretty colours but all were dark. I got myself Below Ground Greasepaint Stick. 

Mac Below Ground Greasepaint Stick

Mac Below Ground Greasepaint Stick: This is a creamy rich brown-bronzy shade.  I love the smoothness of these and they glide on so much better than shadesticks. I can't wait to use this eye base!

A few days ago Mac released a new collection called Pret a Papier. After seeing the promo pics, I knew I would be getting the coral paintpot called Coral Crepe.

It's a true coral colour with a hint of shimmer which is perfect for the summer.  It can be worn alone or as a base. I love how it's a coral shade so I can wear it on the cheeks and the lips. The formula is quite smooth and it doesn't crease on me either.

Product Comparisons:

Swatch Comparisons:
Coral Crepe (LE), Perky (LE), Rubenesque

Fold and Tuck Lipglass was also released in this new collection. Another pretty coral pink shade with a hint of gold shimmer. I love the pigmentation and the formulas of Mac lipglosses. I think this colour would suit all skintones.

Product Comparisons:
I find Fold and Tuck (LE) to be a lighter version of Red Devil (LE) and Lychee Luxe lipglass. 
If you're a sucker for corals like would definitely love Fold and Tuck lipglass.  Also, it's more wearable and not as bold as Red Devil or Lychee Luxe lipglass.

Swatch Comparisons:

 Light that Fire (LE), Fold and Tuck (LE), Red Devil (LE)

Lip Swatches:

This collection also had a nice blush called Instant Chic but it looked very similar to Melba blush which I already have and yes...I have tons of peachy blushes in my

I also picked up Summer Rose Beauty Powder from the Liberty of London Collection. I'm glad they had it in stock and it's a gorgeous pink shade and I just love the formulas of smooth!

Cute Packaging!

 Sephora Haul 
 I took advantage of the recent Sephora Sale and got some MUFE products!

5, 6 and 14. 
Check out my review : #5 Nip Slip Blush

#14 <- I bought this one for my aunt. She's much lighter than me so it would work fine on her.
#14 does not show up on my skintone.

I love the formulas of these soo much! They last such a long time on my cheeks and I love the colour selection as well. Only draw back is the pump since too much product tends to come out at once so you gotta press gently to get a small amount.

 I've been wanting the MUFE Gold Flash Color for a while now.  I finally got it! I'm loving the colour and the texture. This base is nothing like what I have and I find it quite unique. I'm also VERY EXCITED about MUFE's upcoming Metal Collection. 

  That's all for now!

Did you guy get anything during the Sephora sale or something from Mac's latest collections?

Girl, I got #5 and #6 MUFE cream blush too! Aren't they just lovely? I also got Nars Torrid blush...what a beauty! Thank goodness for Sephora sales!

How do you apply the MUFE cream blush? Fingers? Duo fiber brush? So far, I've been using my fingers...but I think I might try using a brush. Just wondering if you find that there's a difference in the final look between the two methods of application.

Gr8 haul! OMG love the MUFE gold base!can wait for the MUFE gold collection. I skipped red devil, coz it looked neon corally red on me. fold and tuck is nothin like red devil,it is the perfect coral L/g IMO, not too red/orange and it looks gorgeous when paired with ever hip/red full stop l/s.

need help with blush application: after doing my makeup, after contouring adding nars blush and buffing it in, i leave the house, and before you know it i look in the rearview mirror and notice again! the big streak mark my cell phone ruins from its heat i guess and i have a blank streak /gap on my cheek /jawline. what should i do to keep blush and contour on longer, i use mufe silica powder but it doesnt set anything. should i try mac creamblush, then apply powder blush, or just try this mufe cream blush to keep it on? also have u tried nars sheerglow foundation? need to switch mu mufe hd foundation to something more matte for the summer for my oily skin!
