I went to the MAC holiday collection preview party yesterday and barely got in the door! :-) It was packed with people, everyone trying to catch a glimpse of the new products and you had to be careful not to be knocked over! There was a gorgeous model styled like the model in the promotion image, with an awesome dress made of metallic foils. You can go to Lilly's Blog to see pictures of the event she took with her camera!
I had made up a mental shopping list in order to know which way to run ;-) and this was it:
Eyeshadow Palette Smoke and Mirrors (which I got)
Eyeshadow Palette Devil May Dare (which I also got)
Mineralize Eyeshadow Devil-May-Care (which I passed on)
Dazzleglass She-Zam (I got Jingle Jangle instead)
Eye Pencil Iris Accents (which I didn't get)
All in all, there is something for everyone for sure!
I passed on the Mineralize Eyeshadows altogether because I didn't like the glitter part in them. It was very chunky and generally glitter is something I don't ever wear. Same goes for the eyepencils, they had silver glitter in them and I just didn't see myself wearing them. The Cremesheen Glasses looked very promising in the packaging, but when swatched showed almost no pigmentation, which is too bad because I like these milky pastel shades! I also liked the face kits with the blushes and powders in them, these will be hard to walk by next time I visit the MAC store!
As for the prices:
The eyeshadow palettes cost 42 Euro each and the Dazzleglass 19 Euro.
I am looking forward to see what you guys got from "Magic, Mirth, and Mischief"!
