Upcoming MAC Collections

I was crazy excited for Hello Kitty, but I'm not so sure anymore. The lip colors are really bold, like the hot pink & bright orange. As pretty as they are, I don't think I would get much use out of them. The bright pink blush reminds me of Dollymix, which I already have. The colors in the eye palettes don't scream, "BUY ME!" either, haha. I'll probably just get something for the packaging. But there are other collections coming out that I'm more excited for.

CREAMTEAM [February 05, 2009]
I only have 1 Cream Sheen lipstick, but I love the pigmentation and texture of it. The glosses look really pretty. The colors seem very neutral, shades that can be worn on a daily basis. And they're not full of shimmer or glitter, which is nice sometimes. [pictures from]

GRAND DUOS [March 12, 2009]
Ooh, mineralize blush duos. I LOVEEEE mineralize blushes, and these look gorgeous! There are already 3 or 4 that I like. Why MAC, whyyyy. [pictures from]

SUGAR SWEET [March 19, 2009]
The lipglosses look interesting. Shadesticks are also coming back! And look at those MSFs.. they look amazingly pretty. [pictures from]

WELL DEFINED [February 05, 2009]
The foundation and concealer sound really nice. Full coverage, moisturizing, spf, good for sensitive skin? Want that :)

Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation is a hydrating cream foundation. It delivers medium to full coverage and a natural-satin finish. It is long-wearing and water resistant. It feels comfortable on the skin, helps the skin feel moisturized and helps to revitalize dry skin. Emollient ingredients improve skin’s hydration immediately and with continued use. This gel-based formula glides on during application and blends easily. Micronized silicone-coated pigments help this dermatologist-tested foundation to adhere to skin while helping to maintain colour purity. A special polymer helps the skin appear more taut and results in a smoother-looking complexion. Spherical, soft-focused materials help perfect the look of the skin. This foundation provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with an SPF of 15 and PA+. This non-acnegenic formula is recommended for all skin types and is safe for use on sensitive skin.

With all these collections, I really should start saving up. I can't go too crazy. But maybe 1 or 2 things from each collection would make me happy :D

I went to MAC today, woohoo. I asked the MA about their B2M policy, and she said they'll take the eyeshadow pots without the pans. Yay! So I'll be bringing in my depotted shadows in sometime. Here's my BBR haul and some swatches.
