More MAC for you now (MAC excitement of this magnitude doesn't come often!). The picture this time is of Flashtronic, and the really lovely looking mineralize skinfinish and eyeshadow.
I've just been browsing through the new offerings on the website and have mentally just spent more than I'd care to admit. My wallet's probably quaking in my bag right now, as I want to buy nearly all of it. In the real world though, I'll probably restrain my self to one or even no purchases. What about you, what'll you be buying from the new collections? You can pick multiple answers!
Ok this is all your fault, but I just went and ordered:
Mineralized skin finish in Northern Lights
All of the Mineralize eyeshadows (6 in total)
Pigements - Cocomotion, Copperized, Mauvement, off the radar, Rush Metal, Quick Frost.
Not one for lip glosses or lipsticks so gave that a miss.
I'm not fond of MAC counters at all, so I prefer to buy online...haven't bought MAC since the Barbie range tho. Probably won't again since I prefer Japanese brands...but I love pigments and I love swirly eyeshadows.
I spent £200! And its all your fault!!

I'm sorry Row, but just think of all the great make up you'll have now!
I love pigments too, but I only ever make a tiny dent in the full sized ones!
I'm the same, I prefer to buy online too. You'll have to come back and let us know what you make of it all!
I'm still trying to make up my mind what I want, I'm still dithering and if I dither too long it'll be gone!
i bought the mineralize eyeshadow in quarry and LOVE IT!! it's light blue, gold, and bronze swirled together but on the eyes it's a very cool-toned, almost ashy champagne. love it under the browbone, and i use it wet on the inside corners of my eyes. i am rediscovering the pleasures of mac after years as a sephora addict, and yesterday i spent nearly $100 at the mac store. i'll take this opportunity to extol the virtues of the fluidline, i want every color!!!

The Mineralize eyeshadows look great, i've never brought any MAC products as the price puts me off, can't really justify to myself spending 12 quid for an eyeshadow but then they do look good... I'm looking for eyeshadows at the moment that actually stay on your eyelids as most i use tend to disappear halfway through the day!

Rowena - Wow how do you find it all? I just checked out Adambeauty, I'd never heard of it before! Does the stuff you order from there arrive here ok?
Evangelia - Oooh that sounds lovely, I'm always searching for the perfect neutral eyeshadow shade. I so wish we had a Sephora, and $100 in the US probably goes a lot, lot further than £50 would here!
Hi Mimi! I know you have to be on the ball I think, MAC is certainly a cult brand!
Shell - I know they're expensive but they're really good quality and last ages! Try a primer on your lids to help your shadow stay on. Or the MAC paint (in the tubes) under shadow helps with staying power a lot too.
Charlotte - Adambeauty is the best for delivery. It's recorded and only $2 usd regardless of size. On a good run, I get my parcels in 3 days! Once, in 2 days. With the postal strike I got one in 5 days. So it's really exceptional...
(P.S. You got to try Kate or Lavshuca. They are my fav brands ever, and a quad is like £6-8)

Thanks Rowena, that sounds fantastic! I can't believe how quick things come, I'll have to check it out properly!
