So I am keeping a limit on what I get at M.A.C. I am just trying to stick to the items that are standout, different, new etc.

Style Black, Cinderfella & Blackfire

Style Black, Cinderfella & Blackfire

As mentioned before, I think that the Style Black collection is quite wearable and sultry!!! I got only 2 items, Cinderfella MES and Blackfire Glimmerglass. Surprisingly I don’t own a lot of grey colours so I snatched this one up.  This is going to make a sick smoky eye, and the shimmer is not too large so it does not look gaudy.  I had to get one of the Glimmerglasses and Blackfire was my pick.  It is basically Beauty Marked in lipgloss form.  The formula is similar to the Dazzleglasses, so its a black, sheer, shiny lipgloss with dark burgundy shimmer suspended in it.  I did not get the Greasestick as yet because it is supposed to reappear with the DSquared2 collection which is rumoured to come out on Sept 28.  September 28 is the date for the DSquared Fashion Show in Milan and they wanted both collections to coincide. I would suggest calling your local M.A.C. counter to check.  None of the other items were must haves for me.

Dazzleglass Creme, Amorous & Creme Allure

Dazzleglass Creme, Amorous & Creme Allure

Onto the Dazzleglass Cremes! I think these are the perfect formulation.  The shine, brilliance and glassy-ness of the Dazzleglasses with a great colour payoff!! I was struck and instantly drawn to Creme Allure and Amorous and my pictures DON’T DO THEM JUSTICE! The colours are intense, Amorous is a deep, bold brownish red with prominent gold flecks and Creme Allure is almost the perfect deep fushcia with gold flecks.  For me these were the 2 standouts.  For some reason I am attracted to vibrant reds and pinks even though I am still getting used to bold lip looks. See swatches below!!

I did not get the Zoom Fast Black Lash because it is permanent, but, yo, it’s black!!! Definitely one of the blackest mascaras that I have seen.  Very dark, sooty colour.  I can’t wait to try it!!
