0 MAC Glamourdaze Color collection Haul

I keep telling myself that I have to go on a make up ban, but whenever MAC releases a new collection, I can't help buying especially if there are NEW blusher colors being released. Arggh. Same goes for this collection. I bought the following

All 3 blushers (Being a blush whore, I had to buy ALL)
1. I'm the One
2. Easy Manner
3. Small Vanity

2 lipstcks and a lipgloss in
1. Outrageously Fun
2. Innocent
3. Talk softly to Me

I tested out Beauty lipstick @ the counter as well, But it was too pale and ashy on me by itself, So I skipped that even though I could use that as a mixing color, but I foresee myself not to wear that often so.. I skipped. I already own both the extra dimension skinfinishes from another collection so I skipped that and the e/s as well (felt that the colors were quite common, nothing that really WOWed me). Coz I gotta save some $$$ for the holiday sets. 

Here are some pics and comparison swatches of products which I feel are quite similar but not quite the same to the stuff I bought

I'm the One (Satin) - Quite similar to MAC Peony Petal with a slight pink purple undertone to it. At first judging from the Pan, I though I m the One would be lighter than Peony Petal. I was wrong. I'm the one has slightly more color payoff than Peony Petal. Both are satin finishes.

Easy Manner (Satin) - A pale neutral pink with the tiniest hint of peach.I would  say it is an in between color between Pink Tea and The Perfect Cheek, All being Satin finishes.

Small Vanity (Satin) - Brownish tone blush. Very similar to Blushbaby but with a different finish. Blushbaby being a Sheertone blush is slightly more sheer than Small Vanity

Outrageously fun kinda reminds me of a brighter and more pink version of Up the Amp which is definitely slightly darker n not as pink as Outrageously fun. I would say it would be a cross between Pink popcorn (LE lipstick from Reel sexy) & Up The Amp

Forgive me for my dry and chapped lips. Tried exfoliating it already but it's still so dry from the medication I am taking that No matter how much water I take or balm I put, it's still dry and flakey. Innocent is a frost finish lipstick with coral undertones, and if u have dry chappy lips, either u put lots of balm before it or stay away from this. Coz if ya not goin to put balm below it's gonna end up lookin a bit chappy like mine >.< Mine lips are usually not this dry though...

Not a big fan of the lipglass finish, I love this color, but dun quite like the finish for this. I've tried on other MAC lipglass before and they don't go on as uneven as this color when I first applied. But after a while it kinda settles into my lips and doesn't look as uneven as when I first applied... bUt stilll..... Nice color...but I think I would prefer this in a cremesheen formula. It's a nudish pink, best worn with stronger eye make up.

0 Urban Decay Vice Palette

When I first saw picture of this palette online, I knew I had to have this palette. I don't have too many of UD's palettes, but whatever palettes that I have (Alice in Wonderland, NYDC BOS, Black palette, Naked Palette) I loved them. Of course in every palette that UD makes, there are bound to have one or two which are too glittery for my liking, but the other colors more than make up for my dislike for the glittery ones.

Compared to the previous BOS, this palette is much slimmer and much friendlier for traveling. And what I like about this palette is that it has a balance of neutral, bright and smokey colors, so there is something for everyone in this palette. I can see this palette being a very versatile one. All swatches pic are swatched without eye base. Pls click pictures for enlarged pic esp for the swatches.

 Packaging of the palette

It is much slimmer than the previous BOS that UD released

Desperation: No Dupe for it from MAC
Muse: Looks like a darker version of MAC's Mulch e/s, nice for a smokey brown look
Jagged: No Dupe from MAC, Not a fan of this shadow, coz it's too glittery and chalky as u can see from the swatch...I suppose using a base would help with the application.. But still..
Blitz: A nice dirty gold to match the other browns in the palette, 
Penny Lane: Kinda reminds me of MAC's goldmine, but lighter and less orange. Has smooth texture

Junkie: Quite close to MAC shimmermoss, but this is a tad darker than shimmermoss. Texture is smooth and blendable
Chaos: This is the blue that attracted me to the palette, When swatched I find it pretty smooth, but it's best to use this with a base to bring out the pigmentation of this color even more.
Occupy: Smooth texture and easy to blend. A good color for smoky eyes.
Unhinged: Reminds me of the defunct MAC's parrot e/s but less blue and intense than Parrot. Good texture as well
Black market: Smooth and good texture with intense pigmentation. Great for lining or for smokey eyes. 
Provocateur: I don't care too much for this as just like Jagged it's too glittery for my liking. An eye base is a must for this color, otherwise I foresee glitters all over my face XD
Rapture: Smooth and blendable texture. More purple than MAC's satin taupe, It's a good everyday color for work. Would wear this again and again
Vice: Similar to MAC's satelight dreams but with more blue undertones to it. Easy to blend as well.
Noise: A very interesting shade of pink, would go well with the purples and golds in this palette. Also very blendable
Amor: Another glittery e/s but not as glittery as jagged and provocateur, It's still a workable color

Nevermind: A great neutral everyday color. Smooth and blendable texture
Echo Beach: Reminds me of MAC's blonde gold pigment. Buttery smooth and blendable. Good for lazy days where I just wan a wash of color on my eyes
Anoymous: Dupe from MAC - Vanilla or Brule
Freebird: Reminds me of MAC's jest e/s. Slightly more shimmer than jest, but still smooth and blendable, A very good neutral shade to work with
Laced: A good socket color for contour, More pink than MAC's wedge e/s

0 MAC For Marilyn Haul

I didn't get what the hype was all about for this collection.... The eyeshadows were blah, and neither am I a fan of red lipsticks. I only ended up hauling three items from this collection, the 2 blushers and Scarlet Ibis lipstick (Which is a repromote from Iris Apfel --sorry if i get the spelling wrong). 

Both blushers are light in color, but buildable. Legendary definitely has more color than Immortal flower which I didn't get because it was too light even on my NC20 skin. I would compare The perfect cheek to MAC Mocha blush, but less pigmented than Mocha blush.

As for Scarlet Ibis lipstick, I find that although it really looks almost identical to Lady Danger when swatched on the hand, but when worn, Scarlet Ibis has more red tones to it while Lady Danger has more orange tones to it. I don't exactly like red lipsticks, but I do kinda like red lipsticks with orange undertones. I find that Red-Reds tend to make me look more mature than my actual age >.<

Enough of talking here are the pics and swatches.

And here's a pic of Scarlet Ibis on my lips, sorry for the poor resolution as it was taken using a HP camera

0 MAC pro longwear blushers

MAC pro longwear blushers are part of a permanent line up launched with Office Hours. Being a self confessed blush addict, I had to get my hands on some of the blushers (I skipped the darker ones as I could foresee myself not wearing them). Bought 5 of the lighter shades in Rosy outlook, Stay Pretty, Stay By Me, Blush all Day and Whole lotta love. 

Comments: These have a very velvet like texture to them, color wise, they are more towards the sheer side esp for the lighter colors...so these blushers are really good for people who are afraid of piling too much blush on the cheeks but still wan a hint of color on the cheeks. For people who are used to pigmented blushers, do note that u would have to layer these for more intense color payoff. Otherwise, I myself really quite like the colors of the ones I bought as they are really good for everyday wear. Finish of the blushers is matte

Rosy outlook: A peachy pink blush, kinda reminds me of Dainty Mineralized blush but minus the shimmers.

Stay pretty: A cool toned pink blush 

Stay by me: Reminds me of Legendary (from Marilyn Monroe) or Immortal flower from Tres Cheek, but color payoff definitely is more than that of Immortal flower which hardly showed up on my NC20 skintone

Blush All day: Similar to Blushbaby in the pink brown family, slightly more color than blushbaby

Whole lotta Love: A coral pink blush that looks like it's a mix of Dollymix and Fleur power but minus the shimmers.
