So this limited edition collection has come out in both the US and internationally. Here are my 2 cents.
I love the packaging, they did a good job on this one. The white background with the floral and bird motif works really well. Even the inside of the boxes were printed with a multi-coloured floral pattern. For those people that like to collect limited edition packaging from M.A.C., you won’t be disappointed.
For the rest of you, this is a good collection, not great but good. A lot of the colours are dupable, but there were a few standouts.
1) Blue India Nail Lacquer – The message boards have been buzzing about this one for months! A beautiful, midtone tealish blue creme with a greyed effect. Hot!!! Would really look good as a pedicure colour.
Another collection with special edition packaging!! Now this is the one that I’ve been waiting all year for!!!! I am a sucka for packaging and I don’t think this one will disappoint! The blogosphere has been abuzz for months about the bluish-greenish nail lacquer, Blue India and you know I have to add that to my collection!!!!!!:-) I also did not get the Dirty Plum blush from the Riveting collection (even though it is a PRO colour) just so that I could get it from the this collection. I love the white background with the bright bird motif! I would love to get the scarf too, but…….it will literally break my bank and I have to get some stuff from the To The Beach collection coming out in May. Swatches to come!
‘The very latest in a series of famous MAC collaborations, it was only a matter of time before the demure-to-daring kaleidoscopic prints of Liberty of London coloured our world with Brit wit and bohemian chic. From the unstudied, Sienna Miller style of Spitalfields Market to the grit-and-glamour of Portobello Road, the swinging London girl has always been an unstoppable MAC makeup force! Spring 2010 insists on the ultimate flower fusion, with MAC joining forces with Liberty, creating cool Britannia compacts and Lipsticks, Eye Shadows, Powder, Blush, Nail Lacquers and, of course – blushing, bountiful, quite British accessories.’
