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.

2) Birds & Berries Eye Shadow – This is beautiful!  A darkened blue with green tones in a veluxe pearl finish.  Great for a smokey eye and works well with silvers, neutral champagne colours, blues, greens, purples etc.  The possibilities are endless! Get it!

Now for me there was one nice to have and that was:

1) Dirty Plum Powder Blush – A deep, matte plum.  This is a PRO colour so this is a good buy for those who are not close to a M.A.C. Pro store.  This is a great colour for those with tan to dark skin.  It’s super pigmented and should be applied lightly with duo fibre brush or fan brush.

The rest of the colours were not calling me.  I think they would work better for those with lighter skin tones.  But is this a decent transition collection from spring to summer.  Definitely cyah wait for those to come out!!!
