This past Monday, I took an early morning stroll to Macy’s to visit one of my favorite MAC counters at Metro Center (in DC) to get a closer look at the Give Me Liberty of London collection. The girls there are so sweet and helpful, and you just can’t beat that kinda customer service. There’s one really gorgeous chick in particular who always helps me, I sadly don’t know her name but she’s breathtaking! Anyway, she helped me decide what I should get from this collection. The gorgeous spring-inspired white packaging with soft flowers and cute little birds really stood out. Sometimes I’m a sucker for packaging and I know I shouldn’t be..but if its super cute and unique, then dammit, I probably gotta have it.

I skipped Give Me Liberty of London and Free to Be eyeshadows. I have a pigment (Cool Pink) that looks exactly like GMLL e/s, and Free to Be (Matte – creamy true coral) is available otherwise, so I can buy that later if I really want it.

OVERALL THOUGHTS…

This was a pretty small and adorable collection. I’m glad it wasn’t as large as Spring Colour Forecast, because I’d be broke as hell right about now. I did overspend about $35 with this collection, but I still stayed under $200, and for me that’s pretty good. As of now, this collection is pretty much sold out online and probably at most stores/counters. At my MAC counter, they had a SMALL box of things left over after just the third day of debut. If you are interested in this collection, you better act fast!
