Mini Mac Haul

Lately I've become obsessed with blushes. More to the point - of the powdered variety. 
For ages I was only into stains & creams. I found them easier & faster to apply....& I'm rather lazy when it comes to sticking to a comfortable routine!

Behold my new additions to the ever growing makeup collection:

The above is without flash, so a bit hard to see the true colours. There's three Mac mineralize blushes & three eyeshadows. There were more that I also wanted, but I had to set a limit on the spending to be sensible :(

This photo with flash gives a better idea of what they actually look like.
Haven't had the chance to wear them properly yet, only had a small play around with two of the blushes.

The blushes appear to be from the MAC Colour Craft collection - released mid 2009.

Style Demon is intense in pigment! I'll need to be very light handed on the application.
Cheek & Cheerful is a lovely light bronzey golden glow. I'm hoping that I might be able to lightly sweep all over my face as a light bronzer, will see how I get on with that.

The eyeshadows were $19 each, which I think is good value considering the RRP in Oz.

The blushes were each $26. Pretty much half the retail price, but also no longer currently available in stores.
Even when checking on US websites - the price is spot on for what you'd be purchasing from over seas.
(or cheaper actually when you take in postage & exchange rates).

I didn't need to purchase any of these, but they were just so darn pretty & cheap in comparison to in store, that I thought sod it - I'm buying em & budget be damned LOL ;P

I'll update on what I think, once I've had a while to wear them all.

I found this tutorial on the US Mac website interesting - on application using the  mineralize products.

Do you have a favourite Mac blush or have you yet to be seduced by them?

    I haven't tried any mineralise blushes, but wanting to buy Petticoat since a long time!
