MAC Fabulous Felines Collections - Haul and Thoughts...
Curiosity killed the cat...meow or yawn!
After checking out this collection person I wish I hadn't but I must press on for the sake of the blog. This collection is a complete skip if you want my honest opinion except for a couple items.
If you are a pigment collector and you do not already own the pigments that debuted with this collection then by all means go forth and multiply. Definitely grab Old Gold, Antique Gold and Gold Stroke. Skip Lithe if you already own Naked or Jardin Aires or any of the light nude pigments. Bloodline is new but just a dark muddy color so I stayed away.
You can definitely skip the lip products because they are on the sheer side...unless that's your thing. If I buy a lipstick I expect bang for my buck so skip...
The mineralized blushes are worth mentioning because I grabbed one. They are nice colors but not to die for at all. Utterly Game, which is the one I picked up, is a soft coral color that looks great on my skintone so I'm so it would look great on lighter skin too. It reminds me of Stereo Rose without the metallic frost. The Soft Meow is close to Comfort MSF so that's another dupe if you missed out before. Pet Me is a very very light pink that would look pretty on light skintones but not on me.
The short handle brushes seem to find fans all over so again if that's your thing or if you need travel sizes of these brushes then enjoy.
The palettes are blah! Very blah! The eyeshadows are very tame colors that can be duped 100 times over. If you love palettes or have nothing similar then maybe you would find one palette to suit you. I picked up the Leopard Luxe palette from my wishlist just because...I didn't mind the colors and the two dark greys were pretty enough.
The new liners are pretty pretty pretty but take some work. They are very watery and take forever to dry but if you have some patience then they are decent to work with. What kills me is the price - US$17.50 for 1.8ml / 0.06 US FL OZ. What???!!! Urban Decay liners have 4 times that amount for $18. At $17.50 these shouldn't require the work they do. Screw you MAC with your crap! As if! Skip these and go with Urban Decay.
