MAC GRAPHIC GARDENS & LOOK IN A BOX +swatches- HAUL

I was at Nordies today battling my way up to the Mac counter. They were all out of both pink/nude lippes, a brush set, & I got the last Sweet Tease look in a box. This was the first time I was ever fearful for my life at a Mac counter. I was being pushed & actually waited in line to swatch the shadows.

Getting the look in a box was a complete shock to me. I didn't even look at them. I was looking at Love Nectar Lusterglass & the girl asked if I saw it in the Look in a box. She brought everything over & I also noticed I didn't have Gleam or Mulch that was inside. The zoom lash is going to be for my mom. And I fell in love with the Beauty Powder because it's a pretty highlight w/out the glitter. I'm not a fan of the 181se brush because I had one & killed the bristles, but I'll take it. Sold!
This is this is the box with a face chart:

(L)Gleam (R) Mulch Love Nectar lusterglass

Top-Bottom Swatches Gleam, Mulch, Love Nectar

Shell Pearl Beauty Powder
I the bought Fresh Cut Palette. Surprisingly, all these colors are pretty & smooth.


I think you could do a lot of everyday looks w/these colors. These are all pretty for the lid. The darkest color is perfect for smokey eye. It's not black or brown.
I may go in search of the lippies. They said they may get the Nudes in at Southcoast.
I like all of the colors, love the packaging. I wish I could have swatched everything, but that was way too hard with so many people.
What did you get? What do you think of Look in a Box? What's your favorite piece?

I got both of those sets (so excited to play with them now) and the Baby Blooms lip bag (with the pinks), but they were sold out of the nude and the other e/s palette. The MUA said they could still order the other lip bag, so I'm considering calling for it.

I got the Sweet Tease box, too! I didn't have to fight for it though... The beauty powder is my fave too--it gives such a pretty shimmer! :)
