FOTD ft MAC In The Groove

So, the whole MAC In The Groove hype has been circulating around the beauty blogosphere for quite a while and I have been looking forward to them since then. Living in the land down under not only means we have to pay a much higher price for these babies, there's also a time lag when it comes to the launching date. 

Having such high anticipation on this collection also means that I have to check them out on the launch date itself, which was Monday, the 26th.
Being the sensible *cough* shopper I am, I managed to control myself not to go crazy at the MAC Counter and limit myself to 3 items. *Pats self at the back*

The 3 items that I got:
MAC Lipstick in Jazzed
MAC MSF in Stereo Rose
MAC Mineralized Blush in Hang Loose

I knew I had to get Hang Loose and Jazzed the moment I saw the swatches from temptalia. A little confession here, I did decide to get Stereo Rose because of all the hype, at the start. However, when the Make Up Artist in MAC applied it onto my cheeks, I knew it was a right decision made. =)

I am still debating whether I should get Mac Lipstick in I Like It Like That. It's a blue-based opaque pink but it reminds me of BubbleGum when I swatched it, just slightly more opaque than Bubblegum and a little creamier. It's such a pretty colour but blowing A$35 on a lipstick similar to the colour I already have doesn't exactly spell sensible. 

Did any of you get I Like It Like That? 


So, I had an interview (which turned out to be a 5 minute "chat session" and I did not get the role :( ) on Monday and I wore the Neutral Smokey Eye look *click* without the falsies and the Barry M Dazzle Dust.

I made an otherwise simple look a lil more vibrant by applying Stereo Rose & Jazzed and have I not already mentioned, HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM?

The coral peach lipstick matches my scarf that day and I absolutely love the glow I get from Stereo Rose. :)

Money well spent, nuff said :)

As much as I love them, I probably wouldn't wear it as often as it is more of a summer colour and the weather in Sydney lately has been anything but summer-ish. Think cold and wet. Will probably wait till the arrival of spring before I go crazy with them again, which is in about 5 weeks time! Can't wait!!! :D

What did you get from the In The Groove Collection? Any of the above?




I absolutely hate how AUS prices are so expensive for MAC...and other products like Bobbi Brown, Nars etc too! It's outrageous :(
