MAC - Mini Haul

I decided to visit my local Nordstroms store to pick up one of the palettes and one of the lippie sets but ended up purchasing some other things since the ones that I really wanted were sold out.  This is what I ended up purchasing: Fresh Cut palette, Starflash Re-promote colors in One-Off, Fashion Groupie, and Rated "R".



FRESH CUT PALETTE


Swatches:


Left to Right: One Off, Steamy, Humid, Newly Minted

Left to Right: Fashion Groupie, Vibrant Grape, Nocturnelle

Rated "R" and Sharp (LE)
Left to Right: Rated "R", Sharp, Chrome Yellow
Overall, I am satisfied with the purchase I made.  I really wanted one of the lippie sets but damn the nuetral one I wanted was SOLD OUT!!!  Also, I had no idea that MAC was re-promoting the Starflash collection and I got to pick up those colors that caught my attention.  One-Off is like a dark teal-ish color and I have nothing like it.  Fashion Groupie is such a pretty purple....I love it!!!  Rated "R" is very similar to Sharp e/s from the Tempting Quad (Cherry Culture Collection, Fall 2008).  I think I might return that one but I'm not sure.  I can't wait to play with these new colors...super duper excited!!! =)

Have any of you checked out or purchased any of these collections?  If so, let me know what you got and if you like it.

@ Lindah - I can't wait to do a few looks with this palette. I too, purchased it since I'm always doing my makeup on the bus or at work...lol. And I'm not wearing the new colors on that look I got up on my page...but like you said, these colors are very dupeable.

@ GoldBeauty88 - Tnx girl, its a palette you can pass if you have similar colors. I really wanted the Garden one with the light blue color but it was sold out =(
