MAC Toledo for Spring 2015 Swatches and Review

MAC Toldeo

MAC Toledo has arrived!

This collection is a collaboration with fashion and illustration designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo. Ruben designed the special white packaging, which also has a smooth matte finish that I happen to adore. Everything is white, black and red with a very cool modern graphic feel. Love!

There are quite a few items in the collection and I’ve got a good array of what I feel are the best shades.

MAC Kinky Boots Swatches

MAC Kinky Boots

MAC Kinky Boots is a limited edition collection out right now until January.

In case you didn’t know (and I didn’t until recently), Kinky Boots is a Tony award winning play. I first heard about it while watching TV because it’s currently playing in San Francisco. Then I saw MAC was coming out with a couple items to pay homage to it. Something else I learned about the show – Cyndi Lauper does the music and lyrics. Love her!

MAC Objects Of Affection for Holiday 2014

MAC Objects Of Affection

The MAC Objects Of Affection for holiday 2014 collection comes out soon and I’ve got a few pieces for you today.

As you probably know by now, the pieces in all the MAC holiday 2014 collection are black or white, glittery and have a cameo theme. Loving this whole thing! Also no worries about any of the glitter on any of the packaging being messy. None of it comes off of anything, so it’s all good. ;)

MAC Keepsakes for Holiday 2014

MAC Keepsakes for Holiday 2014

MAC Keepsakes for holiday 2014 is now on the MAC website and I’ve got some of the many goodies from the collection to show ya.

This collection is rather gigantic! It features three Keepsakes Eyes palettes, three Lip Bags, three Eye Bags, two Face Palettes, three Brush Kits, two Exclusive Makeup Bags, a Hanging Travel Bag, a Viva Glamorous Lipstick and a Viva Glamorous Lip Palette.

The bags are really pretty, I am kind of in love with them. They are white and have a glittery white texture with pearls around the zipper, and a cameo on the actual zipper closure. So festive! The Keepsakes Palette is black and glittery with a large cameo on the front and pearl around the edges. I am in love with this cameo theme, I have always been a fan of anything with a cameo on it. :)

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014 Swatches & Review

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014 has arrived at VV headquarters and she sure is a pretty collection!

The holiday collection in its entirety consists of some basic pieces in the Heirloom Mix collection, which I have here, a Keepsakes collection and and Objects of Affection collection. I’ll have those other two for you soon but today I wanna focus on the beautiful basics of Heirloom Mix.

The packaging is quite cool. The boxes and the actual product cases are shiny black with silver glitter. It’s not loose glitter though, it’s incorporated into the plastic so no need to worry about it shedding off. This collection includes five Lipsticks, five Cremesheen Glasses, eight Pressed Pigments, two Fluidlines, two Glitters, one Kohl Power Eye Pencil, one Eye Kohl, two Mineralize Blushes and three Nail Lacquers.
