Jin Soon Choi for M.A.C. haul

Cool Reserve (L) & For Fun (R)

Hi folks!!

So I was able to view the new M.A.C. nail collection on Saturday and I think this a great fall collection.  The colours are very creamy, mostly dark, vampy and you would need at least 2 coats for full coverage.  There was some streaking when applying the first coat but application was smooth on the second.  The colours are beautiful and I was really tempted to just get them all, but I only got 2 of them:  Cool Reserve and For Fun.

Cool Reserve is by far my favourite of the collection. I love it!!! It’s a cool, lavender, light plummy, grey, taupey colour. It reminds me a lot of OPI’s you don’t know Jacques from last fall’s France collection, but this colour is a little lighter and more lavender.  This is an amazing colour for manicures and is a good transition colour for the fall.

For Fun is a bright but deep red plum.  Another great colour. I think this colour would look AMAZING with a matte top coat!  I’ll need to try that! This would look amazing on a variety of skin tones especially if you are tanned, olive or dark.

I have not fully decided yet if I am going to get Dry Martini.  It’s a dark, mossy green colour, that is a lot darker than Rescue Beauty Lounge’s No More War, which is a lot lighter and has more yellow in it.  Great colour.

Rich, Dark Delicious is a beautiful, dark chocolate colour.  I am trying not to think about the fall, but this is a wonderful colour.

Beyond Jealous is a very dark, bluish teal and it reminds me of M.A.C.’s Plumage eyeshadow.

My least favourite colour was Dance All Night.  A burnt, red with a hint of orange.  It’s not that I did not like this colour, I just liked the others more.

Polishes are available now in stores and online for USD$12.00.  Get them now, ‘cuz they are selling out fast!!
