MAC In The Groove Haul Pics & Swatches

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 4 - 2010

I wanted to get these out quickly in the hope that the photos/swatches over my overspend haul may be useful to those still making up their minds on what they want to order.  But I failed…

I’m not gonna do any proper reviews, I’m just trying to put some shots out there that are as colour accurate as I can manage.

Without further ado…

The Haul!

Stereo Rose MSF – surprisingly wearable on my pale, cool-toned skin.

By Candlelight MSF – Already wishing I’d bought two!

Happy Together Blush – Peachier than I imagined, beautiful with a light hand!

New Vibe Blush, LOVE!  Gonna use as an eyeshadow too… adore the raspberry pink with gold when swirled together!

All Styled Up and I Like it Like That are kinda similar.  I Like It Like That is cooler toned and darker.  Both, (in my opinion) stop short of being ‘statement lips’ which keeps them thoroughly wearable.

    Nothing appealed to me before but that new vibe blush is calling me.

    I hope they still have it online/in store for it shall be mine!

    Oh my! the msf’s look gorgeous!! Would you recommend getting ‘by candlelight’ msf or the ‘happy together’ blush?

  13. @Hpnotiqz – By Candlelight is slightly cooler-toned, but the same colour depth as the two shades of Happy Together swirled together.

    It depends what you’re looking for really…

    You get nearly 3x the product in an MSF as you do a mineralized blush (though you pay a little more).

    If you’re cooler more pink toned, I’d say go for the MSF. If you’re warmer and a touch darker, go for the blush.

    Both are quite shimmery.

    Hope that helps!

  16. Oh my god, I want those lipsticks :O and New Vibe looks gorgeous! I was kind of imagining the purpley side would look like a bruise, but it doesnt (thank god LOL)

    Nice! :) I’m wearing Happy Together today and it is gorgeous!

    I got a back up of By Candlelight when it came out with Warm & Cosy because it is so beautiful and works really well. I thought it could becopme the new Pleasureflush actually, it’s similar, just warmer and less shimmery. And Stereo Rose, well. it’s just a must! Shame it’s now sold out on the Mac UK website. :(
