MAC Style Warrior Haulerz

So, I am officially on a BEUTY BUDGET.
When walking into the MAC store, for the Style Warriors collection, I wanted to buy SEVERAL things (meaning, almost the entire lot) lol! But I refrained, and bought only what I felt I needed.
I also got two MAC HK lippies that they had left!! w00t!


MAC Hello Kitty Lipsticks



STRAYIN'
I didn't take swatches, because I am going to sell this one- how many more pinks do I really need? LOL!
Price: $20 plus S&H email me if you want it (first come, first serve).

Big Bow


Very unique hot pinky-coral with a blue/violet iridescence.




Two Nail Lacquers

Violet Fire- Bright Creamy Magenta Purple (frost)
& Mercenary- Frosted Blackened Bronze

Natural Lighting:

Swatched on white paper:




MY FAVORITE of this collection: Solar Bits

MAC Pro Website:
Highly condensed clusters of pigment and pearl uniquely formulated to give a special hit of frost and colour on eyes and cheeks. The pigment’s special clustering formula provides the choice of two application modes. Swish the brush over the top of the clusters for a sheer shimmer or crush them for more intense colour effect and sparkle.



Impassioned- Frosty Cool Taupe






Bronzescape- Clean Yellow Brown with Gold Pearl

Bronzescape contains more "chunkier" clusters than Impassioned<--which is more smooth.





Lustre Drops
MAC Pro Website:
A bronzer that applies like liquid sun. Water-based, beautifully smooth to apply with added pearlized lustre. Inspired by the popular M•A•C Face and Body FX. Provides sheer, natural-looking highlights with a luminous, shimmering finish. Limited edition.
Sun Rush- Peachy Bronze with Gold Pearl
I used this as a highlight today, and I LOVE it!!
Reason why I skipped the other two:
The pink Lustre Drops (Pink Rebel) was just NOT showing up on me. The darkest one (Bronze hero) was just toooooo orangey for my taste.

Reminds me of those Puffy Paint tubes!! lol


Pretty sheen, eh?




I only bought ONE eyeshadow- and I was soooo proud of myself, because I was tempted to get Bright Future (the yellow one) & Night Manoeveurs (the darkest one)- but I am on a strict budget now, so I got SOFT FORCE instead.
I already have Vibrant Grape & Tempting.

I LOVE lighter colors, I am always on the hunt for a limited edition MAC e/s called GOLDBIT- I think it's going for like $40 on ebay which is wayyyy to high- so anytime MAC comes out with a light color, like this one, I grab it right away.

Soft Force- Frosty Pale White Gold (veluxe pearl)





Style Warrior Lipsticks

Okay, first of all, I don't like the packaging of the actual lipstick tube itself.
I wish the whole lipstick tube was covered in zebra or leopard print.
When I asked my boyfriend what he thought, he said one word, "Rite Aide"
haha!

When you open-up the tube, you can see the pretty zebra and leopard print on the part you use to twist up the lipstick- so that's nice I guess.
Left: Brave New Bronze- Creamy Mid-Tone Pink Nude (satin)<-- feels more like an Amplified or Cremesheen IMO.
& Right: Purple Rite- Mid-Tone Frosty Orchid (frost)




Now I have tonnnnns of looks to do!!!

Q_Q What a gorgeous haul! Ahh, if I weren't on a makeup diet too (since I ordered quite few stuff from BonBon Cosmetics), I would go out immediatley to grab some Style Warriors goodies, hehe...

I love the e/s Soft Force. Frosty Pale White Gold sounds good! I'm sure, it would work on me very prettily. :p

Well, we'll see... maybe I can get it in a few weeks (if it's still available then). *hope*

Huai-Ann said...

Whit, you have much better willpower than I do!! I try soooo hard to stay away from these collections, but I always cave. I just feel tempted because they're like collectibles to me, you know? Sigh. It's easier for me to stay away when it's not in cute packaging. :)
