MAC : Lightness of being Collection



The first post of 2015 and its showcasing the newest MAC collection. Now whilst it does have some glittery editions, plus i stayed away from the lip products. Im really happy with what i bought. 


They say : 
Open yourself to a new lightness of being with a free-spirited collection of uninhibited, poetic shades inspired by whimsical flights of fancy. Liberate yourself from darkened tones and explore the freeform movement of frosted lavender, pearlized champagne and pale mint green.  Shimmer elegantly in our new Mineralize colours for eyes and cheeks. Welcome to expressive colour for the modern spirit. 


Featuring 2 Blushes, 2 Skinfinishes, 6 Eyeshadows, 5 Rich Lipsticks, 2 Eye pencils, 5 Mineralise glass, 2 Studio Nail lacquer, 3 Brushes. 


Packaging 


So the mineralise packaging has a half glossy/half matte box. Its very simple chic and not over the top, I really like the new and improved style. 

Mineralise Skinfinish in Perfect topping


Now i was really unlucky to miss this when it came out first. Then decided to not obtain the last release as it wasnt the same formula. When seeing these swatches, even though nothing will rival the original beautiful perfect topping. This edition seems to be more to my tastes, i would just like to see more marble and lavender. Which hopefully will be present when the pattern goes down a little. 


I love the pattern and the finish is beautiful. Peachy golden highlight with a beautiful feeling and effect on the skin. I really am glad i purchased this edition. 

Mineralise Skinfinish in Lightscapade


Now lightscapade is a permanent fixture from the MAC collection. I do love how this pattern and collection suit the product. However i am for collections to bring something new to the table. I dont however mind these 2 Skinfinishes, as i feel the eyeshadows are beautifully unique. I love the new packaging but would love a little clasp, like on the blush to open it better. However the pattern and finish are stunning. 



With its beautiful mix of lavender and golden tones, lightscapade has a beautiful pearly-light golden finish. Beautiful subtle highlight or can be also used as a inner eye highlight. I love these 2 new additions to my collection. 

Mineralise blush in Please yourself



This was the only blush i wanted out of the 2 available. As its a beautiful pink with  hints of sparkle. Now its glittery apperance may put some people off. I would only wear this with all matte face products, to let this blush really be shown to its fullest. 


As you can see in the swatch, its a lovely berry pink colour with hints of shimmer. It will look beautiful in spring with the lovely hints of colour bursting through. Its a beautiful, highly pigmented blush. A welcome addition to my MAC family. 

Free sample : False Lashes mascara 


This is the first MAC mascara i have had to try. Im currently using a travel mascara, that i want to finish before i try a new one. Once i do try this mascara, i will add an update as to how it performed. 


Overall this collection was alright. The eyeshadows i saw were beautiful. However this collection is heavily shimmer based, if your not keen on shimmer then i would check your local MAC to see the products.  The skin-finishes are beautiful and im so glad i purchased these. Even though "Perfect topping" is a repromote and "Lightscapade" is a permantant fixture. They are beautifully presented within the mineralise packaging, also with the patterned embossing of the powder. This is also the same for the mineralise blush. Im very happy with the added additions to my collection. 

Did you purchase anything from this latest MAC collection ?
