MAC Heirloom Mix and Keepsakes Holiday Collection Swatches

I have always been excited over MAC's holiday collections cause they release a lot of palettes, kits, and minis for us to try different ones. So when I read about this collection at Temptalia's blog, I knew I had to order from the states cause over here in Saudi Arabia they release it 1 to 2 months late. If you read my previous blog post, you'll know that I only got 3 items from the collection cause I already own similar colors and dupes of the other items, and the other ones just didn't interest me. So here are the products that I got.

 MAC Keepsakes Smokey Eye Palette

With this palette, I really tried my best to get good swatches. I scraped and even sprayed my arm with Fix plus to get a good color pay off but I just couldn't get a decent swatch cause they're too sheer. I noticed every time they come out with palettes, the colors and textures are not exact to the original single pots. I love the packaging of this palette but the swatches are just disappointing.

I love the texture and smell of cremesheen glasses. Unlike their lip glass, this isn't too sticky and they are a little bit bigger.

This pigment is so pretty! It looks like plum in the pan, but when swatted it's like mauve/brown I just can't explain it. 

I hope you find my swatches helpful and I love to hear from you guys on the comment section. :)

Nordstrom Makeup Haul and MAC Heirloom Mix Collection

I was excited when I saw a blog post of MAC's new holiday collection. I knew I had to buy from the US so it would be cheaper. I placed my order on Oct. 21st and just received them 2 days ago Nov. 2nd. If you didn't know, Nordstrom doesn't ship cosmetics internationally so I had to use my US address from Borderlinx as the shipping location. When I received the package it looked like this:

I already cut the tape cause I just couldn't wait to see what's inside! :) Oh the joy of opening packages!

Then I saw this. My items were unprotected and I saw some powder from the eyeshadow, so I knew something was broken. I wish Nordstrom placed some stuffing or some sort of paper inside to protect the items.

Here are the products that I got.

  • Beauty blender with the liquid cleanser
  • Clinique bottom lash mascara (my favorite cause it doesn't smudge and the small brush makes it easier to apply)
  • MAC smokey eyes palette (from their new holiday collection Keepsakes)
  • Donna Karan cashmere mist deo 
  • MAC lip glass in Seeking Adoration (from their new holiday collection Heirloom mix)
  • NAKED basics palette from Urban Decay
  • MAC pressed pigment in Modern Majesty (from their new holiday collection Heirloom mix)
  • MAC eyeshadow in Brown script
  • MAC liquid last black liner

And here are the samples that I've chosen. 

I first opened the NAKED basics palette. I knew the broken eyeshadow was from this palette cause when I took it out of the box the packaging was dusty. I was so nervous upon opening it I thought all the eyeshadows were shattered. Luckily it was only the color "Venus" and it was only a small chip. 

Next was from the MAC Heirloom Mix collection. I was so excited to get my hands on these cause the colors are just so pretty and the packaging is beautiful! I will post swatches in my next blog post.

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Kittenish

I know this collection was released in the US couple of months ago, I even did swatches on 2 of the l/s right here. But now I'm back in Saudi and they just recently launched this collection a month ago so I grabbed "Kittenish" which was sold out when I was in Guam.

Now this color is something I would wear compared to the other 2 colors (berry bold, revved up) that I got. I did side by side swatches of some of the MAC. The finish is close to Lustre and it has a good opacity.

Do you own any of these l/s? What are your thoughts about them?

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner 

Hi ladies! I just posted a new video on how I easily apply "Benefit Push-up Liner". I have seen some Youtubers do a video on this and I found it kind of hilarious cause most of them do it cause they were sponsored. I even saw this one video where the girl was having a hard time applying the liner and she had flakes and clumps of products in between the lashes but she still talked about how the liner is so easy to apply, etc. I'm new to doing videos and I usually hate seeing myself in videos but I just decided to go do it cause I really like to share some of my knowledge for makeup and products with you guys.

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil Swatches (Berry Bold & Revved Up)

Hi ladies, I know it's been a while. Just a quick update, I'm recently in Guam spending summer with my family, and I've been buying a lot of makeup here cause it's cheaper in US territories than in other parts of the world. I've been visiting the MAC counter a lot, and I feel sad cause I want to be a MAC artist so bad and I just can't be one since I live in KSA. Over there only Saudis can work at MAC and I just feel so bad that I can't share my interest, talent, and creativity to women who need help in finding the right makeup for them. :( As much as I want to leave KSA, I just can't cause my husband has a good job there and he doesn't want to be away from our daughter and I. :( oh well........ Ok enough of the rant and on to the swatches! 

According to the MAC website:
"The colour and shine of a gloss, the precision of a lip pencil - now in one colour stick. M•A•C Patentpolish Lip Pencil instantly achieves a luscious shine with a single swipe. Effortless twist-up keeps application clean and simple, with no need to sharpen. Enjoy colour in a range of 12 new shades - from bright corals to soft, rosy pinks and natural nudes - that stay bright and true on all skin tones."

My hubby got these for me for my birthday last month. Personally, I wouldn't pick it up for myself cause I saw the review and swatches online and it just didn't interest me. I'm more of a creamy/matte lipstick person cause i feel like lip glosses are all the same and I don't need that much glosses.

Revved Up ($21) & Berry Bold ($21)

MAC Revved Up

MAC Revved Up - This color is super sheer! It's close to MAC Hello Kitty Cutester but Cutester is creamier and it has tiny glitters. I'm not a fan of sheer lipsticks cause I have tiny blue veins on my lips and I don't like it to show. 

MAC Berry Bold

MAC Berry Bold - It reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters but to be honest, the Revlon one has better formula and it stains the lips (which I like). This is just blah to me. For $21 it is overpriced while you can just buy a balm or gloss stain at the drugstore for just a few bucks. I have never been disappointed with a MAC product so this is the first one on my list.
