I headed over to Mac today for the Holiday 2009 launch. I was a little disappointed again.
I ended up with only 2 things. I bought the eyeshadow palette in Smoke & Mirrors and a
Dsquared greasepaint stick in V.
I love this paint stick. Look at the color, royal purple w/black. This won't budge at all. It's better than the shadesticks & paint pot. It's a great base or just lid color.
They had 6 palettes. I chose this one because i know i can use all the colors. What i noticed about this years & last years palettes is that the eye shadows are chalky.
What i really noticed is the size of the shadows. i feel like they are 1/2 last years shadow size. Here is last years smokey palette. The size looks smaller, is it?
What i loved most was the bags that the kits came with. They were really pretty, but i already had a lot of the colors they put together. The one thing i did like though was the blush/highlight/bronzer combos. I already had those colors, but i was leaning towards the pink one.
I'm done with this collection. I really wasn't too excited with it or the size or the texture of the shadows.
What are your thoughts? Do you like anything or are you getting something from the collection?
