Mac Style Seeker Collection

Mac Style Seeker was released today in stores and I was so excited for this collection but I must say I was not that impressed once I got to the counter. I've been watching videos on you-tube on people who were able to get these products early and reading different blogs to view some swatches. I still wanted to go out and play around with these items myself.
"Fall colour surfaces in a vivid colour collection influenced by the spirit and style of a global wanderer. She has a knack for juxtaposing vintage, ethnic, flea market and avant-garde into stunning original looks, inspiring a world of wanderlust as eclectic and fashionable as she is. Translucent, buildable, Powder Blush adds glow. Eye Shadow Duos create brilliant, sultry effects punctuated with Fluidline. Classic Mattene Lipstick is revived for dramatic, dense colour that lasts for hours. Lipglass gets fresh flair in new shades, and Nail Lacquer in jewel tones and metallics extend the opulence to the tips of the fingers"

I swatched everything while I was at the counter and the eyeshadow quads except one was a miss. They were not pigmented at all and the formula was off from the regular Mac eyeshadows. You would have to put in some work and time to build up some of these colors. There are 4 quads included in this collection and 3 of the 8 shades are already included in Mac's permanent line. I ended up with the one quad which was Marche Aux Puces. This was the most pigmented quad and I actually think its sold out online. 

There are 3 blushes included which I have to say were very nice. I ended up getting Hidden Treasure just because I didn't have a color like that in my collection. I passed on everything else because I either had something similar or it just didn't do it for me. 

To view the whole collection and swatches you can go to or Let me know what you guys think of this collection.

Laura Mercier Lingerie Eye & Cheek Palette

When I saw this palette on someones blog ( I can't recall which one) I completely fell in love. I went searching online everywhere for this to notice it came out in January. I thought I always miss the good ones. But I still didn't give up. I was determined to get my hands on this. I got on a chat with Nordstrom (who always comes through) and she was able to track one down for me at their store in Missouri. I wanted to do a happy dance at work. I was super excited and had it ordered for me. It arrived a couple of days ago and I must say this was worth the $60 I paid. It has such beautiful colors and its very pigmented. I love the color selection because its an array of colors that's wearable everyday. It has a range of mattes, lustre, shimmer and satin eyeshadows and the shimmer is not too overbearing. The eyeshadows are smooth, they don't crease and they blend like no other. The blushes I love except the peach one because it does not show up at all on my NW45 skin. Its very sheer compared to the pink one. This is my very first product I ever bought from Laura Mercier and I must say I am excited and I cant wait to try more from this line. I was not dissappointed. I love this palette. Its small and very practical and can fit in any makeup bag you have in your purse.

Mac Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

With the Heavenly Creatures Collection came the highly anticipated Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. This is a Repromote from a previous collection I think about two years ago. I didn't buy it last time and with all the great things I heard about it I thought I should grab one before it sells out. Let me just say I am not at all impressed with this. I have been using this since it came out in July and I have broken out horrendously. Yes, it makes your face smooth but I didn't expect the breakouts.

A highly effective, dual-purpose foaming, cleansing and exfoliating scrub blending natural Volcanic Ash with fine sugar crystals. Refines and unclogs the skin, adds instant moisture: leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean. Mineral-rich. May be used effectively on any part of face or body. Rinses off with warm water."

This product is not as gritty as other exfoliators out there. The particles dissolve as you rub it into the skin without leaving the skin irritated. Its a mild exfoliator that doesn't have an unpleasant smell. It leaves skin feeling soft and you will notice the glow it gives. I use this 3 times a week. Besides the breakouts I will give this product a 3.5/5. This is a limited edition product so go get a sample from our nearest Mac counter.

Price: $28.00
