Oh boy, this took forever!! So many pictures. I'm exhausted. For those of you who follow me on twitter and have joined my facebook page (stab that "like" button, btw), you saw a few preview images from all the crap I bought from this massive MAC Venomous Villains collection. Monday night I raced home to make sure I'd be able to order everything I wanted before it sold out (which it did about 2 hours later). It was an exciting and stressful rush, because I always -- ALWAYS miss out on stuff! Not this time *evil laugh*
Recently Smashbox had a great sale and being the cheapo that I am, I had to snatch up that pretty little Hot Date eyeshadow palette and I was also sent some other tiny items, which was really sweet of them :)
I am a complete sucker for bright, bold "in yo face" colors...so you know good and damn well I had to pick up some of the candy from the Dare to Wear collection by MAC. Sooo pretty, I'm all teeth right now, see? --> :D Anyway, I didn't buy everything, but I did get a handful of stuff to play with. I adore color, so this collection was right up my alley.
Better late than never right? To be honest I wanted to wait until I received my Stereo Rose MSF before I did this post just because I didn't wanna have to break this into two pieces. I felt this In The Groove collection was just okay -- I only bought five items. I already had two of the MSF's (Petticoat and Comfort), but not the "star" of the show, Stereo Rose. I heard about Stereo Rose a couple years ago and even back then, MSF starved folks everywhere were foaming at the mouths, selling their homes and children to get MAC to re-release it. When MAC first put it on the website, it sold out in like two hours. I missed out -- womp. Then a few days ago they put it back up on the website only to have it sell out again in less than an hour -- but this time I got mine ;)
Talk about long overdue! I know I'm later than FEMA posting this, but there are several reasons I waited so long. I'll spare you those, and just get down to business. As most of you know, MAC released a much anticipated Summer collection called To the Beach around two weeks ago -- full of typical summery shades. Beautiful bronze colors, electric greens, cool corals, etc. One of the most coveted items from the collection literally sold out within three hours...and left a lot of people high and dry.
You ever get bitten by that "Dang, if I don't buy this now...I'm gonna have a hard time finding it later"-bug? Well, I have a rash from that bug and the bite-marks to prove it. A few days ago I went to the MAC website and randomly clicked their Goodbyes link and saw a gang of items on the chopping block -- it's a sad sight! Tons of eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses and more waiting to be adopted by you. I didn't buy a ton of stuff, but I did pick up a few items I've been eye'ing for the past few months but didn't wanna buy when they first came out. I still see about four more things I'm gonna have to grab before they're gone and then sold online for crazy high crackhead prices. I'm not gonna review any of what I bought right now, but I will post descriptions and tiny snippets of my initial thoughts...
