YUP! I did pick up a few things. I actually went to the store to check out the collection, which is something I rarely do. I knew I wanted Hibiscus Lipstick, but the rest of the collection I was kinda EH...on. SO I swatched EVERYTHING. I was totally unimpressed with the cheek powder. YES, it is gorgeous looking and the color is nice, BUT I just didn't feel it was worth my $28, I knew I would only use it once or twice and never re-visit it, so I passed. I was also unimpressed on the pigmentation of Blue Noon Powerpoint Eye Pencil, which was something I thought I wanted and the rest of the collection just didn't spark my interest at all.

This is what I got:

Gilded White Powerpoint Eye Pencil- Gorgeous! This is so much prettier than I thought and looks amazing in the inner corner of the eyes. It glides on to the waterline and inner corner with ease. No tugging at all

Hibiscus Lipstick-This is a creme sheen finish and is very pigmented. It feels really nice on the lips and the color is just as pretty as I thought it would be. It is like an orange/coral kinda color, I don't own anything like this.

What do you think of my little ol' haul? Did you purchase from this collection or did you decided to pass?

I went to mac yesterday and had planned to get the hibiscus lipstick for sure and I had a few other "maybe's". But I completely changed my mind. I wasn't crazy about the Hibiscus on I passed. I really had wanted it! I passed on the entire collection. I ended up leaving with a cremesheen glass, which I do love though! I really like the hibiscus on pretty!

I wasn't impressed either. I even forgot to purchase the shimmery white eyeliner that i wanted for the waterline haha. Do you think it stays there and it's creamy enough?

Ooooh love your eyes for that look! The lipstick looks great on you too. I got the lipstick, the cheek powder and Surf USA/Sun Blonde eyeshadows. I'm not sure about Sun Blonde ( have to wait until I get home to test it) but Surf USA is much welcomed into my collection!
