Mac Peacocky Collection (Haul & Thoughts)

It's been sometime since I bought Mac products. I've tried my best to resist some of these Limited Edition collections but I caved in this time. This collection just came out. It consists of 15 Mega Metal eyeshadows and 12 Kissable Lipcolour lipglosses.
Noir Plum, Paparazz-she, Odalisque
I was really  impressed by  the texture of these eyeshadows and these eyeshadows are much bigger with more quantity. Even though quantity isn't a big factor here...I doubt I'll ever finish an eyeshadow that quick. Therefore, the quality of these eyeshadows is what interested me the most. It's a creamy but powdery formula that just slide on like butter, applies smoothly and blends magically.  In fact,  I would say these are similar to Starflash eyeshadows but WAY better. The finish of these eyeshadows are all metallic and you can enhance it by applying it wet. Some of the colours are more metallic than others. Also, you won't be leaving any wet spots on the actual shadow either.
Size Comparison
 
Regular Eyeshadow Vs. Mega Metal Eyeshadow

1.3g vs. 3.4g
These colours are super intense!
 
Paparazz-she - This colour appears to be a metallic burnt orange shade. I'm a big fan of orangey shades so I couldn't resist this one. According to reviews, it's supposedly the most metallic colour amongst the Mega Metal Eyeshadows.

Swatch Comparison
Paparazz-she(LE), Firespot (LE), Off the Page (LE), Brash (LE), Mediteranee Nars
This shade seems to be similar to LE products. I would suggest grabbing this pretty shade as I don't see anything similar to this colour from the permanent collection. I would think this shade would be the most unique.
I forgot to include Mega Rich Pigment which was LE. I would think it is similar to Paparazz-she it but Mega Rich has more brown tones.

Noir Plum - This is a gorgeous vibrant violet colour. It's probably my favourite from the three shades I got. To be honest, I don't have anything too similar to this colour in my Mac eyeshadow collection. I still have to explore and compare it to the other brands. I just love how it applies so richly. I also think it might be lighter than Grape pigment.

Swatch Comparison
Noir Plum (LE), Violet Pigment, Nocturnelle
Odalisque - This is another gorgeous teal blue shade that I just could not resist. Even though, I have so many similar shades from the same family. I wanted this more for the smooth formula. I obviously could not get an exact duplicate from my collection but I got similar shades to compare with. Most of my comparison swatches are of limited edition products.

Swatch Comparison
Birds & Berries (LE), Odalisque (LE), Parrot (LE), Talent Pool (LE), Steamy, Teal Pigment
Kissable LipColour Lipgloss
These Kissable Lipcolour lipglosses come in 12 colours and the formula is creamy like a lipstick yet having the same shine you get from a lipgloss. It comes in a long thin tube that are exactly like the Dare to Wear lipglosses. These are not sticky like the normal Mac lipglosses. Some of the colours are more opaque than others. It also seems to last long and seems to have the same staying power as the normal Mac lipglosses. This collection even includes a blue colour called Peacocky. I'm not sure if this is the first opaque blue lipgloss Mac ever produced. Although, I still remember the blue dazzleglass and the blue cremesheen lipstick.

I've been trying to resist lipglosses generally since I seriously need to finish up what I have. However, I ended up by getting one gloss only.
Flaunting It 
This is a gorgeous plumy pink shade. It seems pretty opaque with micro shimmer. It's nothing like what I have in my collection. I can wear this everyday for all occasions. According to reviews online, it might be similar to Illamasqua's Move lipgloss but this is more on the plummy side.
Swatch
Lip Swatch
I still have to check out the Mickey Contracter collection.I'm thinking of getting the double ended concealer in Coral Corrector/Yellow Corrector. I don't see myself getting any eyeshadows from that collection as I'm pretty happy with what I got from the Peacocky collection. I already have Lust lipgloss which is permanent and being repromoted in this collection. It's a gorgeous pinky brown shade and a staple for sure. The lipsticks seem pretty but are quite dupable. I might end up trying to b2m for one at least. 

So what's on your wishlist? Anything from the Peacocky or Mickey Contractor collection?

Angeles - You should go check it out in person!

MzPangee - I'm sure you can. I think this colour would be perfect for the fall season.

All these shades you picked up are nice Zerin. I'm stuck in what to get. I did finally get my Naked palette today though after being sold out everywhere for months. Happy lady over here.

I like the gloss! I'm not really into the shadows. I saw them the other day in store and they're just ok. I wouldn't spend $20 on a single eye shadow because that's $2short of what I pay for my select sheer powder!!! Outrageous.

However, the lip gloss is beautiful. It looks great with your skintone. I am very fair, so I don't think I could pull the color off.
