Haul - Mac In the Groove collection

I originally wanted to skip on this collection all together, but i was so curious on trying the Mineralize Skin finishes. I only got three things and i made it so they all match LOL! I wanted to get Stereo Rose (which sold out in a few hours!), but i thought it would look weird on my skintone, so i settled for Petticoat which is also sold out online now. I also got on creemesheen glass and a minerlized eyeshadow.

Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat
This is my very first MSF and im SOOO happy about it! It's a gorgeous pale rose with gold and amber vainings. Since i ordered mine online, i didn't know what to expect when it comes to the intensity of the veining, but i got lucky and received a good one. The colors are spread out and i can pick them up individually, or blend them together for a great glowy blush color. Here are swatches of all the colors i was able to pick up from this MSF. Its love!
(i love how it looks like a planet LOL!)

Mineralize Eyeshadow (trio) in Togetherness
There are 9 trios that came out with this collection. I haven't really tried mineralized eyeshadows from Mac before, but i heard those were much better than the ones released before. I decided to get this one specifically because i've been obsessed with purple eye makeup lately so it seemed appropriate lol It's a combination of Lavender (satin), Purple (pearly) and Grey (satin). I love how soft it is, i love how easily they blend. I find it that it's not as pigmented as i thought it was. When you swatch it, they color pay-off is nice, but when you apply it you actually have to pack it on. These are best used wet i think. I love the color combination though and im happy about that.

Creemesheen Glass in Right Image
This is the first creemesheen glass i own and i love it! It's so creamy, so soft and not sticky at all. I've been pairing it up with Myth lipstick and i abolutely love it. It's a midtone blue pink with silver sparkles. It's not as pigmented as it looks, but it gives a hint of the pink color. It looks perfect with Myth, especially if you're tanned.
Did you pick up anything from this collection?


  1. Lovely haul! I actually went to the MAC store in Lincoln Park 15 min before they opened so I could get Stereo Rose before it sells out! The MUA gave me a very surprised look when I asked him if they had it in stock lol He must have thought I am a nutcase! Petticoat looks amazing, why didn't I get this too?? Big mistake, MAC better bring it back again at one point! I love the lipgloss too, very pretty! Enjoy your new goodies! :)

  2. I got 5 things & Petticoat is one of them. It's really pretty!
