MAC Cremesheen & Pearl Collection

Hello my Lovelies!

I went to the MAC Preview Party for the Styleseeker Collection on Wednesday, together with Lilly, Nyota and Renate. It's always fun when you go in a bunch, you can do a lot of swatching together and say very important things like "Oh my god, this eyeshadow is life-changing"... ;-)
 I remember when I went all alone and didn't know anybody, that was half the fun!
It took us a while to get to everything because, as usual, it was packed, and also because there were many new collections on display:

Cremesheen & Pearl
Nail Lacquer
Face & Body

By the end of the evening we had successfully managed to fill our hands and nails with swatches, we had even painted over our carefully manicured nails in order to see what the new nail lacquers look like. :-)
The four of us were all drawn to different collections, Lilly, for example was all over the new Face & Body products, Renate on the other hand really liked the Nail Lacquer Collection.

Me, I was immediately drawn to the Cremesheen and Pearl Collection because, of course, if you know me, I like (*edit LOVE) corals! Not that I don't have enough, but I figure, if corals ever go out of style, at least I have enough lipsticks for the rest of my life! So if corals are ever dead, I will scream: Long live corals!

Here are the lipsticks I picked:

 For Cremesheens these are kind of sheer, but I don't mind that, I like sheer lipstick formulas. For the swatches I had to swipe the colors across my skin several times so they would show up decently.

The color I am most excited about is "Saigon Summer", firstly because I went to Vietnam this past spring, haha, but also because this is my first truly orange lipstick, and since it's rather sheer, I am not afraid of it, I think I could never pull off an opaque orange lipstick like MAC Morange.  

So here are the swatches:

Here is a swatch of Shanghai Spice:

Here is a swatch of Saigon Summer:


Of course we were all curious what our fellow bloggers purchased while we were there, so we all excitedly looked into each others shopping bags.
It was like a live version of "What's in my Shopping Bag".
The other bloggers who were there were:

MAC Gerngross is already selling the new collections, the rest of the Viennese MACs will start selling tomorrow, September 1.

Hi Yvonne! Das hab ich mir auch gedacht, bei so vielen Kollektionen bleibt nicht viel im Geldbörserl! :-)
Zum Glück war die "Office Hours" Kollektion noch nicht aufgestellt, weil noch nicht alles geliefert war!

*lol* hab das gleich mal ausgebessert, jetzt LIEBE ich sie wieder! :o))
Im Gerngross kann man die Lipglosse und Blushes schon anschauen, wenn man nett fragt. Ich war leicht überfordert, hab gesagt danke, aber ich warte dann auf den nächsten Monat mit der Begutachtung, die 4 Kollektionen die es derzeit gibt beschäftigen mich schon genug! :o)

es ist eh komplett unverständlich, warum letzten monat gar nichts gekommen ist und jetzt wieder so viele MAC LEs am start sind. die könnten sich ja auch denken, dass die leute keine unlimitierten finanziellen mittel zur verfügung haben.

Saigon Summer è anche sulla mia lista! Ma sono curiosa di vedere i pressed pigment, guardo se le tue amiche blogger hanno qualche foto! Mi piace anche il blush Supercontinental della Styleseeker, ma credo passerò e guarderò con calma quelli della Office Hours!

Ciao Laura! Io di pressed pigments ne ho preso uno, il piú scuro credo, Deeply Dashing si chiama, non sono riuscita a fare una foto stamattina perché ero tanto in fretta, comunque hat tanti micro-brillantini e scintilla molto di piú di un pigment normale! dimmi poi se ne hai preso uno anche tu!
Tanti Saluti e Happy Shopping! :-)

Oh wow! die sind echt sooooo hübsch! ich freue mich auf diese LE.
liebste grüße <3

Sì ne voglio almeno uno, ma non so quale prendere XD pensavo di prendere tra i più chiari in realtà. credevo il pigmento dovesse essere simile al proprio tono di pelle da usare come illuminante, ma ancora non sono riuscita a vedere delle foto! O meglio, li ho visti, ma solo su pelle molto scura e non riesco a farmi un'idea^^
