At the beginning of this year MAC emailed 60-80 beauty bloggers about a top secret blogger collaboration collection they were putting together.
They gathered color ideas from these bloggers (yours truly was included) and then chose 9 finalists after a couple months of reviewing the submissions. Sadly I wasn’t one of them, but I was very honored to be included in the process in the first place!
These 9 finalists were flown to MAC’s headquarters in Toronto to “concoct” their color at their lab. What resulted was a collection of four eyeshadows and five lipglasses called Bloggers’ Obsession.
I think it’s really awesome that a company as large as MAC wanted bloggers to create something on this scale. It’s a big step forward for all beauty bloggers!
The colors that interested me the most were Evolution Revolution Lipglass (from Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog), Caqui Lipglass (from Lily at Beauty Maverick ), All My Purple Life Lipglass (from Patrice at Afrobella) and Jealousy Wakes Eyeshadow (from Christine at Temptalia). And yahoo for two of them being from the Bay Area! 🙂
I was really excited to check out Evolution Revolution because Karen is one of my favorite bloggers. This is a really pretty, universally flattering color. It’s a pale peachy/pink color with pink, gold and blue micro-flecks of glitter. Great on it’s own or layered over a pink or peach lipstick.
Caqui is a really bright orange that is neither too warm or too cool. It’s build-able and a really nice bright shade for summer.
All My Purple Life
All My Purple Life
All My Purple Life is a dark purple with blue and pink micro-glitter. I’m a big purple fan, so was also really excited to check this one out. I think that this definitely suits darker skin tones more than mine, since it looks fairly dark on me and a little “goth”. Really pretty purple though.

Jealousy Wakes (NC20)
Jealousy Wakes (Veluxe Pearl) is an extremely pretty green eyeshadow from Christine at Temptalia. This woman KNOWS her MAC and her green eyeshadows so I would expect nothing less than exceptional from her and that’s what we get with this one.
Jealousy Wakes is a deep teal green with gold shimmer and a blue flash. It’s soft, very pigmented and unlike any other MAC green I own. This is a definite must have in my book for green eyeshadow fans!
